An American who is easily manipulated by appeals to superficial pro-American sentiment. Is often a jingoist and rarely if ever opposes any US military action; dismisses all who oppose such military action as liberals or Un-American.
Typically rejects out of hand any criticism of his country's foreign policy, no matter how justified, unless the criticism is that America isn't being 'tough' enough in some way. Confuses support for the people and/or the founding values of his country with support for his country's government, especially if his political party of choice (almost always the Republican Party) is in power.
Uncritically swallows propaganda and slogans representing the above mindset - for example: America is 'Hated For Our Freedoms' and the troops are 'Fighting For Our Freedoms'.
Tends to place far greater importance on the trappings of patriotism (American flags, etc.) than on protecting the Constitution or upholding America's founding values.
Worships the US military. Often a Fox News fan.
"My country, right or wrong"
A patriotard says "yes!" whenever the state does some act of senseless barbarism abroad. A liberal is somone who says "yes!" when the state does some act of senseless barbarism at home.
