I think you people may be misinterpreting the quote. A Patriot, by definition, would be a person who supports a Tyrant--who supports his government and its laws. I believe what Jefferson was saying is that _Revolutionists_ need to be willing to kill their patriotic countrymen as well as their tyrannical leaders. I could be wrong, but consider what we consider to be patriotic: flag worship, support of elected officials despite them not having received our own vote... if _that_ is patriotism then surely Jefferson condemns the Patriot, but perhaps the term is either presently misused or was being used in a different context by him.
