That's because various conservative groups have been appropriating patriotism for
themselves. Things like the House Un-American Activities Committee, which was itself an
un-American activity. And liberals have allowed them to do it, and in the Vietnam era
actually put down patriotism. I think liberals can be just as aggressively patriotic as
conservitives, and I think it's about time they were.
