Polls show Democrats are not patriotic

"In U.S., Record-Low 47% Extremely Proud to Be Americans" read the Gallup Poll headline.

Now for the rest of the story.



It is true that only 47% of the residents of the United States are extremely proud of their nation, which is the lowest in the five years that Gallup has asked the question.

But the reason for that is that Gallup included Democrats in it survey.

Only 32% of Democrats are extremely proud of America.

But 74% of Republicans are are extremely proud of America.

Well, that's because President Trump is president, right? Things were different under Obama.

And it is true. In the three Obama years covered by the survey, 56%, 47%, and 44% of Democrats are extremely proud of America.

But Republicans were patriotic even under a president who refused to put his hand over his heart for the national anthem when he sought the Democratic nomination in 2008.

In the three Obama years covered by the survey, 71%, 68%, and 68% of Republicans are extremely proud of America.

So under Obama, Republicans were 15 to 24 points higher in patriotism than Democrats.

And now that Democrats have lost an election, the gap is 42 points as Democrats now are openly unpatriotic.

This shows in who flies the flag. The Pew Research Center found 73% of Republicans display the flag, while only 55% of Democrats do.

The lack of pride in America is reflected in the leader of the Democratic Party -- at least its figurehead -- Barack Obama. In his first European trip as president, he said, "I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism."

So our exceptionalism is common.

He needs a dictionary.

Stet.

But this did not surprise me. After all, his spiritual mentor and muse for his book, "The Audacity of Hope," condemned the nation from the pulpit -- "God Damn America" -- and celebrated 9/11 as chickens coming home to roost.

It is Obama's party now, which includes a large collection of malcontents who see our nation as genocidal, racist, and built on slavery, and absolutely hate it.

  2. Obama will be the black Moses who leads his tribe though the desert for the next 40 years. First, however, he must part the seas so they can cross over to the land he has promised them. Yet, surely his flock remembers how often he told them that if they liked their health plan they could keep it. Would you follow behind this false prophet into deep waters? I'd be a bit skeptical, if I were them.

  4. I don't believe it's only 47%. I don't believe anything Gallup says.

    Democrats as a party have been like that for 50 years.
