Poll are saying that Democrats are the least patriotic Americans. They’ll hate this little clip

(H/T: Instapundit)

Can’t get a lot more patriotic than this – and from Hollywood, too!  That is, the Hollywood of yore when actors actually (GASP!) served in the US military). As to the Gallup poll:

Gallup - Proud to be Americans

The results, predictably, paralleled party lines. Republicans boasted an impressive 74 percent — an all-time high. Democrats weighed in at only 32 percent — an all-time low.

So, less than one-quarter of Liberals are proud of being an American? And being a college grad means being less patriotic than others?

Gosh, I just CAN’T under stand why.  Oh wait, I do, and have been saying the same thing for years:

“This is symptomatic, though, of a culture that’s taught generations our history is bad; the men and women who made this country are evil; [and] there’s dark shadows that need to be considered. And it [has] cast a pall over their appreciation of what it means to be an American,” said Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo to host Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle” on Fox News Tuesday night.

“This is the cultural fallout when you take statues down, when you rip historical figures away without putting them in a proper context, this is what you get,” he added. “This is what you get [after] generations of public schooling, where we don’t learn about the Founding [Fathers], the greatness of our framers, our Constitution, our Declaration [of Independence]. It’s like every other country, except it’s worse,” said Ingraham.

Daily Caller nails “Liberal Patriotism”:

Democrats are somewhat proud when they’re in power and not very proud when they’re not.

Translation: it isn’t Patriotism that drives the Socialists, it is Power, pure and simple.  They are proud when THEY have the ability to boss other people around and not the ideals that form American Exceptionalism.

Powerline adds another nuance:

College grads have more pride in their country than Democrats and liberals do, but considerably less than Americans as a whole. 39 percent of them say they are extremely proud to be American. Given the heavy dose of harsh criticism of our country, and in some cases raw anti-Americanism, students are fed during their undergraduate years, it’s perhaps surprising that the number who are extremely proud of their country is as high as 39 percent.

It’s lower for Americans in the 18-29 age bracket. The figure for this cohort is just 33 percent.

That group consists of recent college graduates, current college students, and non-college grads. The young graduates and current students are, by most accounts, receiving stronger indoctrination than was inflicted even in the 1990s and the first decade of this century. And nowadays, the drumbeat begins before the college years.

UPDATE: I think I’ll just leave these here…

Co-founder of GraniteGrok, my concern is around Individual Liberty and Freedom (and how Government is taking that away from us). My fight, from a Conservative (with small “L” libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective, is with the Progressives that are forcing a collectivized and secular humanistic future upon us. As TEA Party activist, citizen journalist (and pundit!), my goal is to use the New Media to advance the radical notions of America’s Founders back into our culture again.
