Nobody asked but …

Why is it that authoritarians, sycophants, and jingoists think that the only genuine brands of patriotism are authoritarianism, sycophantism, and jingoism?  Make mine Brand X.  And still if I were to list all the places and things I love about the USA, we would all be here until some 4th of July well beyond 2017.
