(Liberty Bell) – If there is one central thread of indoctrination in the whole of the progressive cannon, it’s the mantra that “America was never great.”
It’s been around since long before Donald J. Trump entered the political scene, however.
He’s just revealed it to be as prevalent as it is.
For decade, Marxist-influenced revisionist history has made its way into the public school systems and into popular culture and literature.
It’s the false belief that the United States is a fascist, white supremacist, oppressive evil empire when a simple survey of modern European history shows anything but.
It is authored directly by our enemies and aimed at exactly what our enemies would desire: the destruction of the unique freedom the world has only ever known by virtue of the example set by the United States.
Now, young Americans, particularly young Democrats, who are some of the most privileged people on the face of the earth in both prosperity and rights, are more apt to believe that other nations are superior to our own.
And we wonder how the party got to the state it’s in now?
A shocking new poll has discovered that 47 percent of young Democrats believe that other countries are better than the United States. Moreover, many young Americans admit that they wouldn’t mind other countries becoming as militarily powerful as the United States.
Slightly more than one third — 36 percent — of Americans 18 to 29 say that other countries are better than the United States, according to a recent poll released by Pew Research.
Among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents under the age of 30, nearly half, 47 percent, say that there are other countries that are better than the U.S. Meanwhile, just 20 percent of Democrats age 50 and over agree with this sentiment.
Wow! This is insane. This is at the root of the party’s destruction. It wasn’t long ago that Democrats had no problem professing a love of country, support for capitalism, and a strong belief in free speech and true equality.
Now, the loudest voices in the party are preaching a hatred for our country, support for communism, and are dismissing free speech as a “right-wing talking point.”
“Democrats have become more likely to say there are other countries that are better than the U.S.,” says Pew Research. “In telephone surveys, the share of Democrats saying this is higher than at any point since the question was first asked by Pew Research Center in 2011, and there has been a corresponding decline in the share saying the U.S. stands above other nations.”
The study also notes that young Americans are “more likely to say it would be acceptable if another country became as militarily powerful as the U.S.”
According to Pew, 61 percent of adults say that the United States should maintain its status as a military superpower, but stunningly, more than half–55 percent–of Democrats younger than 30 say they would be OK with nations other than the US rising to military supremacy.
Let that sink in.
The numbers are significantly lower among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, these numbers are significantly lower, with just 19 percent of adults under the age of 30 agreeing with Democrats under the age of 30 that other countries are superior to the US. Lower, but still concerning.
Among Republicans over the age of 50, only 4 percent agree with this sentiment.
Breitbart notes “The report added that while a majority of Republicans say that the Untied States should try to maintain its status as a military superpower, 38 percent of Republicans under the age of 30 say that it would be acceptable if another country became as militarily powerful as the U.S.”
What is going on?
