Here is the definition of "true patriot": A true patriot is someone who loves his country exactly the way it is. That doesn't mean that he thinks his country is perfect, nothing made by man is or ever will be, but he loves his country warts and all.
The phony patriot doesn't love his country exactly the way it is. He may claim to love his country, but what he really loves is a picture, which exists only in his head, of what the country could become if only he, or people exactly like him, were in charge. In other words he really loves himself, not his nation.
What more can I say?
