There is an absurdity of hijacking the term “patriot” by party loyalists that is exposed when they see no problem with a foreign power interfering with our democratic processes. It’s ok for them, because it benefited their *party*, not the nation.
The slippery slope of turning a blind eye to that, the myopic idiocy of putting the party ahead of the nation is detrimental to us all. Patriots are the last thing these people are. If a socialist totalitarian regime aided and interfered in the same way to instill a totalitarian socialist, they’d see it differently. But its too late for this disturbed demented political cult. They are not patriots, they are party loyalists and detrimental to the very fabric of what this country was founded on. Independence from foreign powers.
