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.
