Originally a word used to describe someone who takes pride in being a citizen of their country. Most recently used to keep down anti-war activists by accusing them of not loving their country because they don't want to send innocent men and women to their deaths for unjust cause.

After being called a non-patriot, it is very likely the person will also be called a terrorist as well. Ironically enough, so-called "terrorists" would be probably be considered patriots by their own people.
If you're not a patriot who wants to kill people, you're a terrorist who...wants to kill people?

Originally, a patriot was someone who loves their country and supports it, but won't blindly follow whatever their country's government does. These days, it is synonymous with Nationalist, which is someone who blindly follows whatever his country's government does, and lacks his own ability to think and reason for himself.
Many Americans seem to be patriots. More of them are nationalists.

A citizen of one of the united States who loves his country.

Commonly, "love your country" is incorrectly interpreted as "support your country's government regardless of what it is doing". This is also, consequently, the type of person that people mistake a patriot as.

A true patriot loves his country to the extent that he will work to change it or point out what his country's government is doing wrong.

Most patriots wish to change the government to run the way the constitution describes it should.
Wow, Dave is against the Patriot Act, the Real ID act, and a whole bunch of unconstitutional laws. He must be a patriot.

A well accomplished NFL team that has gone under much scrutiny due to an incident involving film. They have an excellent record, have broken numerous records and won more than one superbowl which is an accomplishment in itself. Many people who are anti-patriots come up with poor excuses to dislike them such as calling them (and their coach) "cheaters" despite the fact they aren't the only team that has filmed other teams. If you aren't competent enough to come up with an excuse for hating them just call them "cheaters" and high five whoever is near you.
-Dude the patriots are such fuckin cheaters they deserve to lose against manning!

uhh, they didn't cheat they just didn't stand in the designated spot while filming. Maybe you should read up on the rules before u say retarded things like that...

-STFU u fag! They DID cheat I know it!

can I just have my coffee already?

A real patriot is someone who loves their country enough to speak up when they see something that needs to be changed; not someone who blindly assumes that their government knows best and is always right no matter what.
I am a patriot in the real sense of the word, not the post-9/11 "if you don't kiss our government's butt you're not a real patriot" sense.
