Those who yearn to fundamentally transform the world to make it closer to the heart's desire
"As we are progressives we are hatriots" -- George Bernard Shaw
Someone who claims to love America but hates the majority of the people who actually live there. Hatriots often romanticize small towns and rural areas, which they view as the "Real America", and they mistrust large cities, which are full of liberal elites, colored people, and the undeserving poor.
Sarah Palin was a hatriot when she said "We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation."
1. Using patriotism as a front to be racist.
2. Being angsty and hateful all the time and using patriotism as your excuse.
Wow, the Tea Party has sure taken being hatriots to a whole new level.
Anyone who loudly and publicly exhibits hatred against a person or race or nation or religion and believes that they are serving the national interest.
Anyone who wants to persecute all Muslims loudly and publicly, and even violently, because they believe all Muslims are terrorists and think hatred is valid social behavior, is a hatriot, not a patriot, ... hatriotism is patriotism gone bad.
1. one who's ashamed of or opposed to their own country.
2. patriot hater.
"i prefer not to celebrate the 4th of july. i guess i'm a bit of a hatriot."
A term used by Elitists as a front to attack people who defend the constitution. In contrast to the new definition of "patriot", which is someone who cares not for the constitution, but for the wars and military operations conducted abroad.
That dude want's to defend the privacy and rights of people? What a hatriot!
