US - John Kerry on dissent

Wrong as usual.

John Kerry:

No wonder Thomas Jefferson himself said: “Dissent is the greatest form of patriotism."

The Jefferson Library:

There are a number of quotes that we do not find in Thomas Jefferson’s correspondence or other writings; in such cases, Jefferson should not be cited as the source. Among the most common of these spurious Jefferson quotes [is]:

* "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism."

At least Kerry is consistently wrong.
