Patriotism in Decline: Survey Shows 1 in 5
Millennials Sees U.S. Flag as
‘Sign of Intolerance and Hatred’

Cybercast News, by Emily Ward

A survey released on Nov. 27 found that one in five millennials views the American flag as “a sign of intolerance and hatred,” and two in five think it is okay to burn Old Glory. The “State of American Patriotism Report,” which was designed to assess the patriotism and historical knowledge of young Americans, also revealed that six in 10 millennials (ages 22-37) believe the United States is racist and sexist. Millennials are not the only ones who lack patriotism, according to the report. Allegiance to the United States seems to be declining among all young Americans.

Comments:
Our American public school system did this while we watched and hoped. Hope doesn´t win wars.

I am a 73 yo veteran, and last weekend I watched the Scottish Parade in Old Town, Alexandria, VA--within a few miles of Washington, DC.

When a unit carrying the Stars and Stripes passed by, only a handful of us stood up and placed our hand over our breast.

Fifty years ago, growing up in a small town in West Virginia, everyone would have rendered such respect.

That´s right folks, we are hateful and intolerant.
We hate tyrants who enslave and put a boot to the throat of people, and don´t tolerate them.
We hate those who rape and murder, and we are so intolerant of them that we lock them up for long periods.
Yes, little snowflakes, we are hatful and intolerant, and are damned sure to stay that way.

If these snowflakes every lived through "hard times" or listened and took to heart what their grandparents told them with the view from experience, things might be different.

The news media does NOT report what REAL life truly is-- little snippets without detail and analysis from Yahoo news or fakebook doesn´t provide much character building depth, but sure can create a lot of cry babies.

Parents are not exempt from some of the blame. You have to teach your children about our history. Don’t leave it to public educators. Be proactive. Tell them about all the good this country has done for the world. If left to public education and then, heaven forbid, higher education, your child will come to hate this country. Don’t allow the system to fill your child’s head with lies. Be patriotic and educate yourselves on the finer points of our history. We take so much for granted. Clearly, we cannot afford to do that anymore.

Another culprit is the entertainment industry. They find great satisfaction in attacking the country in any way they can. We don’t have many patriots in Hollywood and it shows.

I´m intolerant and hateful at the right times. I served in the Army and was intolerant and hateful to the enemy. Why? I love our nation and flag.
Millennials are stupid all the time and that´s no way to go through life. I´ll bet many in the survey have parents who weren´t born here and taught them this hatred besides indoctrination in school.
If you wave the flag of another country in support of ´diversity´ I suspect you would not give respect to the US flag.

The people serving under this flag cleaned up Europe twice or ´Hatred and Intolerance´ would have remained rampant over there, which includes Asia.

The U.S. must do something tangible to get the attention of the young people away from their iPads and cellphones.

I grew up in a time when each space launch was televised at school and every American holiday was celebrated. We made pilgrim hats for Thanksgiving, and Christmas (not "holiday") presents were made to give to our parents. I had more education about the founding of our country and every war from then to Vietnam prior to eighth grade than most college kids have today. It is ridiculous to see how little young people know about America.

Teachers bring their own biases into their classrooms. For example, I only knew of one teacher who had a picture of George W. Bush in her classroom. When you pick and choose which "truth" you teach to your students then you are shaping them in order to hand them off to liberal college professors.

Parents need to back away from Netflix shows and take their kids to parades and other events that extoll American greatness. You can´t leave that responsibility with anyone else.

This the unsurprising result of our country´s embrace of compulsory education without strict requirements on the people who are tasked with providing that education. We have allowed just any hare-brained leftists teach our children and not only are the children worse off educationally, but have been indoctrinated to believe the absolute worst about our country.

It´s the Jews that I worry about today. And the more Muslims we bring in, the worse it´s going to get. The Dems either look the other way or join in; yet Jewish voters are a voting bloc the Dems can count on.

Proof positive that the Communist democrats and RINO Communist comrades are Traitors to Our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Their brainwashing of our children starting at age 4 years continuing through higher education is succeeding in dividing America.

We freedom loving conservative thinkers have not allowed ourselves to be brainwashed into believing Communism called social progressiveness is not slavery to government controlled by One World Government Globalists of no nation country´s or sovereign people by nationality.

Smartphones, tablets and video games are physically changing the brains of adolescents, early results from an ongoing $300 million study funded by the National Institute of Health have shown, according to a report by “60 Minutes.” Scientists will follow more than 11,000 nine- to 10-year-olds for a decade to see how childhood experiences impact the brain and affect emotional development and mental health. The first bits of data suggest that the onslaught of tech screens has been transformative for young people -- and maybe not for the better.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) responded to the November employment report that came out today—which showed that a record 156,795,000 were employed in America—by saying that the report revealed “a callous GOP special interest agenda” that has hurt the “economic security of hard-working families.” The unemployment numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate was 3.7 percent for the third straight month. That is the lowest unemployment rate the United States has seen since 1969, according to BLS. “November’s jobs report shows an economy straining beneath the weight of a callous GOP special interest agenda that

Throughout the past week of mourning for President George H.W. Bush, First Lady Melania Trump has remained elegant in her winter black wardrobe. To pay her respects to President Bush in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda, alongside President Trump, Mrs. Trump wore a Christian Dior black double-breasted cape with rounded shoulders. Once again wearing her favorite winter accessory, Mrs. Trump paired the cape with black leather Bottega Veneta gloves and suede boots by Christian Louboutin. For the funeral of President Bush, Mrs. Trump wore a double-breasted long black coat by Proenza Schouler, one of New York’s most sought-after brands. The coat features a

The country’s National Assembly approved a proposal to change the constitution to make the so-called reforms legal in a vote of 183 to 77. This paves the way for land to be taken from farmers without giving any kind of compensation. And now lawmakers have agreed to set up a committee that will write and introduce a new bill for land expropriations. A deadline of the end of March next year for the committee to present its first report to parliament has also been agreed. But there were heated scenes in the House when politicians clashed over the plans. According to local reports, Economic Freedom

Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson set straight any misinformation concerning his views on President Trump: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said during an interview on Tuesday. Urs Gehriger, an editor at “Die Weltwoche,” Switzerland’s leading German-language opinion weekly, noted that Carlson’s new book, “Ship of Fools,” is silent on Trump but comments on his critics. And so, Gehriger jump-started the conversation by asking what Carlson thought of Trump’s first two years in office. Carlson said he cannot stand Trump’s self-aggrandizement and boasting. Then, when asked whether Trump has kept his promises, the usually quick-witted
