Yes, those nutjobs are probably patriots. Samuel Johnson explained how that may be true:

"Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."

Yes, you can be a patriot and a scoundrel. Hitler was a great German patriot and Bin Laden thought he was a Saudi patriot. It is very easy for a person who loves his country to help drive it into the ground. That is exactly what those Arkansas patriots are trying to do.
