@Finn123 That's what I originally thought and I still think that supporting your country and kinsmen is a good thing, but as far as the definition of "nationalism" goes I currently don't have enough information about the subject to form an unbiased opinion.

But I have heard that nationalism is often confused with patriotism . But I also think that nationalism is often confused with national socialism.

Edit: I did see @Nisse_Hult say that nationalistic is a code word for "I hate dark skinned people (and possibly jews)". I have to disagree.

According to Merriam Webster the definition of nationalism is

"loyalty and devotion to a nation; especially: a sense of national consciousness) exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups. Intense nationalism is one of the causes of war"

What he's describing would be closer to national socialism than nationalism.

But it would probably be better if we dropped this discussion now. Conversations such as these are pointless when debating over the internet. I'm pretty sure we all got other things to prioritize.
