According to Mark Shea, Ezra Klein. Why? Because Klein is a leading voice in the call for Trump's impeachment. He is a an activist not at all shy about donning his PhD and MD in psychiatry and declaring Trump to be mentally unstable. He supports the contraceptive mandate of Obamacare. He supports abortion rights. He supports gay marriage. In short, Klein is a hard left activists who represents many of the radical Leftist extremes that got us Trump in the first place.
And Mark Shea gushes with love and adoration over this folk hero of American patriotism. Why? Because, again, Klein is against conservatives and Trump. Apparently, that is the litmus test. Support abortion rights, gay marriage, the eradication of religious liberty, Leftist politics - it matters not. Oppose the Right and Trump at all costs, and that alone is worthy of praise and adoration. Oh, and that abortion thing? We just blame it on sexist men and capitalists who give women no other choice but to have an abortion.
Remember when Mark joined other Catholics in saying support for abortion rights was bad, or that the HHS mandate was a threat to freedom? Yeah, so do I. But then I can hardly blame Mark for excusing what the Church once so loudly opposed when the Church no longer seems to loudly oppose them.
Note: None of this is to take issue with Klein's interpretation of Trump's interview, or tendency to gloss over the similar foibles that have plagued the media over the last few years. It's just to notice the term 'patriot', which has alternately been used as a compliment, an insult, and a joke in my life, is applied by Mark in such a way.
