I still haven't managed to watch the whole thing, but I keep hearing this speech getting rave reviews, so I'm front-paging a link to the video. Below is just a brief excerpt.
A patriot does not tell people who are intensely concerned about their country to just sit down and be quiet. To refrain from speaking out in the name of politeness, or for the sake of being a good host, or to show slavish, blind obedience and deference to a dishonest, warmongering, human rights-violating president.
That is not patriotism. Rather, that person is a sycophant. That person is a member of a frightening culture of obedience, a culture where falling in line with authority is more important than choosing what is right *even* if it is not easy, safe, or popular.
Update: Here's a link to the complete transcript (thanks, Corinne).
