Being patriotic? Then you being racist.

On a TV program dedicated to automobile hobbyists I heard some English guy and his girlfriend talk about his car. Being (I quote) "a big patriot of his country" he painted his car in red and white colors of flag of England. They told, that he is being accused, by quite a few people, of being a racist.
Quote - "Many people do not differentiate between being a patriot, and being a racist. I'm just proud in what I am."

I'm lost here. Maybe you can diagnose such society.

So far, it hasn't happened in the United States... but already I've been hearing a number of people blasting car-owners who put a yellow ribbon in support of the troops.
