The NEWS has been full of commentary about the protests in the larger cities
of the USA. In the discourse the word "Patriotic" has been used in
describing their use of their right to descent guaranteed by the First
Amendment. While the descent activity is not un-American by definition, it
is a stretch to call such activity as patriotic.
Just to review, The definition "a person who loves his country, AND zealously
supports and defends it and its interest."
Can't say that the protesters qualify.
