Public treason

Pamela at Atlas Shrugged is the Bolton confirmation hearing. She quotes protestors in the audience shouting, "we are the terrorists," "this is not my country," "no to Bolton!".
Sooooo......... if one says "this is not my country" at a Senate hearing, does that constitute a public renunciation of U.S. citizenship? Sounds like it to me. If so, such a person should be immediately placed under close arrest by any nearby citizen and bound over to ICE for rapid deportation- to anywhere. If the statement is not sufficient to strip one of citizenship, then that person should at the least be shunned by all patriots.
Treason speaks for itself:

U.S. Constitution
Article III
Section 3
- Treason
Note

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. (emphasis mine) No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted.

"we are the terrorists" sounds to me like 'Aid and Comfort'.
Legal scholars, feel free to weigh in.
