Patriotism does not possess the traits of a mental disorder. A mental disorder has the following features:

-a behavioral or psychological syndrome or pattern that occurs in an individual

-the consequences of which are clinically significant distress (e.g., a painful symptom) or disability (i.e., impairment in one or more important areas of functioning)

-must not be merely an expectable response to common stressors and losses (for example, the loss of a loved one) or a culturally sanctioned response to a particular event (for example, trance states in religious rituals)

-that reflects an underlying psychobiological dysfunction

-that is not solely a result of social deviance or conflicts with society

-that has diagnostic validity using one or more sets of diagnostic validators (e.g., prognostic significance, psychobiological disruption, response to treatment)

-that has clinical utility (for example, contributes to better conceptualization of diagnoses, or to better assessment and treatment)

The Daily Beast is definitely pulling for one team to win Sunday's Super Bowl, and its definitely not the New England Patriots. In a bizarre, angry screed published Sunday morning, Daily Beast writer Colin Smith excoriated the Patriots for being "Team MAGA," the living manifestation of "MAGA scum," and, perhaps most bafflingly of all, "the preferred team of white nationalists".When you root for the Patriots, you are associating yourself with a virulent and revolting strain of politics that seeks to Make America Great Again — which is to say, white, European, English-speaking have Upset the Leftist

The citizens of Massachusetts are White Nationalist according to a Confused Angry Leftist ROTFFLMMFAO !!!!!!!!!!!

Understanding words has become a failing or shortcoming of the Democrat party. To put it into other terms a lack or shortage of understanding.

Patriotism is the quality of being patriotic; devotion to and vigorous support for one's country. If you view that as a mental disorder then you have a mental defect.

What more can be said about your mental disorder.

So you suffer from a mental disorder I did wonder , thank you for clarifying

Here’s your glorious leader on patriotism , the party ain’t gonna be happy with you buddy .........

Socialist patriotism refers to a form of civic patriotism promoted by Marxist–Leninist movements.Socialist patriotism promotes people living within Marxist-Leninist countries to adopt a "boundless love for the socialist homeland, a commitment to the revolutionary transformation of society [and] the cause of communism".[Marxist-Leninists claim that socialist patriotism is not connected with nationalism, as Marxists and Marxist-Leninists denounce nationalism as a bourgeois ideology developed under capitalism that sets workers against each other. Socialist patriotism is commonly advocated directly alongside proletarian internationalism, with communist parties regarding the two concepts as compatible with each other.The concept has been attributed by Soviet writers to Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin.
