Republicans, especially in the Fox News era, frequently practice patriotism. The idea behind this is that they love America more than anyone else, and should therefore decide what is best for the country. They want to Make America Great Again, they just don’t want to take every American with them.
Donald Trump and members of his family are experts at practicing patriotism. Eric Trump had a master’s class in patriotism performing at a recent Conservative Party event.
The former President’s son told attendees:
“I have a 4-year-old boy Luke. And he came home from school and we prayed every night together. We have prayers for the small family of 3 that we speak of. The Our Father and two others. But I always made him stand up, put his hand over his heart, and say the Pledge of Allegiance. In NY, they’ll teach him the Antifa destruction code. They don’t make the Pledge of Allegiance in NY. “
Trump then asked, “Why do we have this war over the flag and the red, white and blue colors? Why do we have this war over the Pledge of Allegiance? Why do we have people tearing down our statues of historical figures? Why do they want to rewrite the governing documents of this country? They are trying to change history”.
