Anti-American

This was bugging me, so I'm going to let it out. I'm sure it will be pretty random and scattered, but here goes:

What's with people calling dissent "unamerican" or "anti-american"? America was founded on dissent, and exists because of dissent. If there is anything that isn't unamerican, it is dissent. Squelching dissent is unamerican, undemocratic, and pretty much facist.

Furthermore, if following my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, means some of my social, economic or political positions aren't neccessarily "american", I would rather be anti-american than anti-christ. I would rather sell out my government than sell out my God.
