American Conservatives should also be wary of Putin’s intense nationalism. Although many would argue that American conservatives have these tendencies, American patriotism is for a love of freedom and not necessarily the government.

Important distinction.

Sadly, the neofrauds and illiberal interventionists are conflating patriotism with nationalism and worship of whichever bloodthirsty humanitarian cannibal is in power.
