The highest form of patriotism

Remember back in the halcyon days when George W. Bush was President, and there was nothing too outlandish, too extreme, too grotesque that it couldn't be said about him? At the time we were told that "dissent is the highest form of patriotism."

We certainly welcome the end of those days (if not the end of days). Now, apparently, dissent -- that is disagreement with the President -- is not only not "the highest form of patriotism," but it's downright dangerous and anti-democratic. According to no less an authority than the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee:
Aren’t we at the point where the closer we get to chaos, the more concern that there should be about coming to the table and compromising with Democrats? This is not leadership. This is almost like dictatorship. I know they want to force the outcome that … their extremists would like to impose. But they are getting ready to spark panic and chaos, and they seem to be OK with that. And it’s just really disappointing, and potentially devastating.
She forgot racist. It's also racist to disagree with the President.
