Someone who could ACTUALLY have a worthwhile academic discussion would know that the 2 sentiments are not the same. But yeah, you're so clever, too.
Moreover, the reason for the MAJOR anti-democratic problem in this country is NOT about non-Trumpers hating America. It's about Trumpers (and more broadly, the vast majority of Rs) HATING liberals more than they love America.
They should know that a handful of liberal policy preferences don't compare to losing our democracy. But they're too dumb and/or tribal to know or accept it.
