From my experience with people overseas there wasn't a single dang person from the UK that didn't know all kinds of nationalized theme songs or didn't have significant pride in their national identity. Every country I went there were a significant enough amount of the population wearing what you're talking about, that you can't call them "fringe extremists." That includes both military and non military. I read a comment like this, along with all the "tacticool people are the kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk devils th3 naz1s" and it's clear there's no real discussion going on here. If I were to try and explain narcissistic tactics in arguments that prevent actual communication going on, this conversation would be a great one. "Guy who will argue about how we shouldn't use stereotypes, argues basically that people like him should be able to use stereotypes. People call him out. Guy defends position, deflects, shifts goal posts, and does everything possible to avoid admitting he might just be wrong while providing every explanation for why he should be regarded as right." Well, time to put on my EVIL TAKKKTIKKKOOL boots and long johns and get to work. Nice to start the morning off with a laugh.
