Oscar Wildcat It's a good question to ask, "Can you call yourself a patriot if you hate half the people who live in your country?" All people can play this game...
Toenails You certainly could, though typically I hate those that self-identify as a "patriot" and hate half the people in my country.
Also, it helps that I'm a self-hating patriot. USA NUMBER ONE EXCEPT ME!!!
fatatty Well considering many of them think of the other half as communists and enemies within, they would probably be comfortable with that.
And yeah, the left will often broad brush Republicans too, but when they get angry they're often responding to hate from the right in the form of homophobia, xenophobia and warmongering. So it seem they're more responding to hate with hate than the preemptive strike hatred we get from right wing Christians in this country.
