Chauvinist attitude

Several minutes ago fpb deleted his question about the relationship between, as he put it "three Russian languages": Russian, Ukrainian, and Belarusan.
When some members of the community answered that it was not correct to call Ukrainian and Belarusan "Russian languages", he declared that they were nationalists and called them bad words not to be cited here :)

Question:
Why would somebody be called "nationalist" if he/she defends his/her ethnic/linguistic identity?
