The ONE patriotic thing to do until Biden is sworn in:

Ignore Trump. Ignore his lies and don't give him any attention. Ignore his tweets. The majority of American voters have decided to put the orange toddler in timeout indefinitely, and now we need to stop listening to him as long as he continues to act like an idiot.

As long as Trump is getting attention, good or bad, he will never stop. Let's focus on President Joe Biden.

To me, that term is a euphemism for nationalism. While I'm not patriotic, I agree with ignoring Trump.

If the nation were ignoring him, removing him from prominence, and treating him as irrelevant, who knows what he'd do next?

Maybe the ignoring should start AFTER Biden is inaugurated. Meanwhile, I'll be watching, if not feeding, the orange monster.

that I can recall (maybe once during Obama's presidency).

It flies above my Black Lives matter sign!

I have struggled with patriotism as pseudo nationalism, too. I decided that that I feel patriotic in terms of our land's natural beauty. And then I extended it to our mosaic of cultures!

Not in any rah rah the government sense.
