Ignorant and angry is no way to go through life.
Georgetown University students said they are not proud to be Americans and would give up their citizenship. Campus Reform interviewed the students shortly before Independence Day, asking the little ingrates if they were proud to be Americans.
Their answers are indicative of a spoiled rotten, lazy, uninformed citizenry, too self-absorbed in victimhood or virtue signaling to have an intelligent understanding of the opportunity and privilege (Red White and Blue Privilege) enjoyed by all who call the United States home.
Clearly brainwashed by public schools and universities, and lulled into a leftist mindset by the communist MSM, social media, and Hollywood, the coddled basement dwellers had nothing good to say about the U.S. Uneducated in history and world affairs, most couldn’t name a single country where life would be better either.
Brazenly flaunting their stupidity, here are some of the answers Ophelie Jacobson of Campus Reform received when asking the students if they felt pride in America:
“I feel embarrassed to be an American every day. I think a lot of things about this country are really embarrassing, just, like, I mean, racist history, colonization, even currently, just what’s going on with politics and the cops.”
“Not really in this climate, like, I’m a black person, so obviously I experience a lot of — you know, there’s, like, oppression that comes with that,”
“Not most of the time,” another said. “I think sometimes it’s just a little embarrassing. We claim to, like, support everyone, but, you know, we continue to support Israel, which is, you know, which are dislocating quite a few Palestinian people, and that’s, you know, it’s sad. I don’t know.”
“No. Be proud of what?” a fourth student answered. “And what is there to be proud about if you’re black and being, like, you know, because it’s just, like, it’s still a lot of stuff that goes on for black people.”
“I think that’s a complicated question for me,” another student said. “I think most of the time, no, at least over, like, the past four years, it’s been tricky to love to be an American.”
The students were asked if they thought America is the “greatest country in the world,” most said “no”.
One student’s response, “I think, I mean, like, to be a white person, it’s pretty good to live here, but, like, overall, I don’t think it’s the greatest country in the world,” An answer which would have surely garnered her an A+++
Ignorant and angry is no way to go through life, and yet our schools and universities are promoting that mindset and charging for it.
