Why is it that the most outwardly patriotic people don't even know what it truly means to be an American?

There are different definitions of "American". There's the power hungry capitalist version and the egalitarian hippie version. Some Americans feel they have a right to abuse people as far as the law allows. Others feel they have the right to be free of all abuse. One America has varying degrees of misery, while the other has a spectrum of happiness.

Because they are g'dang hypocrites?

That and I think they simply lack the understanding of what it is that makes America exceptional. They think flag waving and getting mad at protesters who take a knee during the anthem is all it takes to be patriotic.

@RoboGraham that's all their idol does too. Seems to be working great for him.
