The majority of those comprising Generation Z (ages 14-21) believe Barack Obama had a bigger impact on the United States than George Washington did, a new survey conducted by the respected polling firm YouGov revealed. That was just one of many disturbing findings of the poll of 1,078 Americans conducted for the Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness (FLAG).
For example, one in five millennials say the American flag is a “sign of intolerance and hatred.” The majority of those in younger generations agree that America is racist and sexist, with an incredible 46% of millennials averring that “America is more racist than other countries.” These findings are symptomatic of a diseased public educational establishment run by self-loathing leftists and steeped in revisionist history. No country in the world is as diverse ethnically, racially, and religiously, and hell, we now are supposedly home to an infinite number of genders! Moreover, blacks, Hispanics, and women are currently experiencing record low unemployment rates and gays earn significantly more in annual income than do straight people. Compare that to Middle Eastern nations, Albania, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, Chad, Russia, China, ad infinitum. In Japan, a modern Western power, foreigners are labeled “gaijin.”
Nearly half of millennials don’t believe America is the greatest country in the world, while one in eight agree that “America was never a great country and it never will be.” Over 60 percent of Americans 14-37 years of age approve of athletes kneeling during the national anthem.
And then there is this: Only one in six Americans of all ages can pass a quiz on basic American history.
Nick Adams, founder of FLAG, stated upon the release of the survey findings: “We suspected that we would find decreasing numbers of Americans well-versed in our nation’s most important principles and young people less patriotic than the generations that came before, but we were totally unprepared for what our national survey reveals: an epidemic of anti-Americanism. That half of millennials and Gen Z believe that the country in which they live is both ‘racist’ and ‘sexist’ shows that we have a major fraction of an entire generation that has been indoctrinated by teachers starting in grade school that America is what’s wrong with the world.”
It is an impossible task for a sane person to internalize the fact that the majority of those 14-21 believe It is easier—if no less disturbing—to believe they might say they preferred Obama to Washington, knowing the sad state of public education today. But to say Obama had more impact is clinically insane. Obama, whatever you might think of him, did not lead troops (from the front!) against the world’s largest and best army whilst having multiple horses shot out from under him. Without accepting pay. I don’t believe he was at any Constitutional Convention, nor do I believe he signed the Declaration of Independence, birthing the nation. And I’m virtually certain he did not cross the icy Delaware river in foul weather on Christmas night in 1776 to attack surprised Hessian missionaries. He was not and is not known as the Father of His Country. (There are some who think that, if he was granted such a title, it would be in reference to Kenya).
No, former President Obama walked the south-side streets of a single American city attempting to persuade its denizens that their problems had nothing to do with them, but were caused by ongoing systemic racism and abuse at the hands of others. He rallied his fellow citizens against their own country, not an occupying power.
At least for now, there is no state named after Obama. The nation’s capital isn’t called “Obama, D.C.”
George Washington was aptly called “The Indispensable Man” for his role in the American Revolution.
The same cannot be said of Barack Hussein Obama.
That so many millennials believe Obama had more influence on the American republic than Washington did simply and starkly illustrates we are in need of a Second American Revolution.
