So What happened to the Patriotic Republican party of Dwight Eisenhower and even Ronald Reagan?

What happened to the American flag waving Democratic kkk marching a rally of thousands in D.C?
Then they stole the confederate flag instead.
Now they use no American flag and find it offensive.
During both Bush's you saw lots of American flags.
When Romney campaigned, you saw flags again, but people took them all down when Obama got re-elected.

I see it as an after-effect of the Reagan Revolution. It really started with Newt Gingrich. He was the Republican leader who invented the strategy of total never-ending opposition to Democrats. Never compromise, never cooperate, just oppose anything they want or say or do.
Since then, when we've had a Democratic president, Republicans in Congress would paralyze Congress, make sure nothing gets to the president to sign. (And then, of course, they call him a 'do-nothing president').
Meanwhile the tone has gotten louder and more stringent. Republican voters are more and more angry about what they're promised but they can't have. Fringe groups are no longer fringe groups, instead they LEAD. And it all leads to a president like Trump, whose biggest ability is lying, who promises everything to everybody but can't deliver anything to anybody.

They're still patriotic, but only for Israel.

A history lesson for you- "Make America Great Again" was a slogan used by Reagan. Bet you didn't know that.

You think it is more patriotic to support a deep state coup than the duly elected President?

It's still patriotic and even more so then back then.

Reagan was a parrot, not a patriot. For as much as I think Trump sucks as a president, I'd still put him leaps ahead of Reagan who completely sold out our nation to the banks and ran the single most corrupt office in US history.
