Gallup just released its annual survey on American Pride and the results are revealing...
First, in the nearly 20 years that Gallup has conducted this survey, American pride has never been lower. This is undoubtedly almost entirely due to the Democrats' total hatred of President Trump which then translates into a lack of pride in our country. This year, just 22% of Democrats say they are "extremely proud" of America -- down 50% from 2016.
But here's the most revealing part of the Gallup survey...
+ + Republicans are just way more proud of America than Democrats... always
The lowest numbers for Republican pride recorded by Gallup came during the depths of the Obama years, when 68% of Republicans said they were "extremely proud" of America (today the number is 76%). But to put the 68% in context, Democrats have NEVER reached 68% -- even in the aftermath of 9/11. During the entire Obama presidency, Republicans were way more proud of America than Democrats!
+ + Fighting the "Hate America" agenda
Interestingly, the first year Gallup took the survey in 2001 (prior to 9/11), the gap between Republicans and Democrats in American pride wasn't that wide (64% of Republicans were "extremely proud" compared with 54% of Democrats). Today, the gap is a chasm, and it's not just because of Trump. Years and years of the Left's "hate America first" agenda are having an impact. By continually demonizing American institutions, traditions and history, the Left has undermined the fundamental love and respect for this nation that binds us together.
We saw it again this week when NIKE withdrew a sneaker that featured the American flag because Colin Kaepernick told NIKE that the flag was racist!
Because NIKE's ridiculous actions don't effect OUR sense of patriotism, as conservatives we just ignore the their attacks on America. But if our fellow Americans don't feel a push back from patriotic citizens, they will assume NIKE is correct... and the Betsy Ross flag is racist! And they'll hate America all the more.
Grassfire just launched a "Just Say NO To NIKE" CITIZEN STATEMENT, rallying patriotic Americans to take a stand against NIKE and others who are determined to purge our nation under a false pretense of division and racism.
(See full petition language below.)
The Betsy Ross, 13-Star flag is considered one of the first official flags of the young American nation. Its circle star motif has long represented the Revolutionary War era and the amazing courage displayed by the patriots in the 13 colonies who risked "their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor" to create this great nation. Now, because anti-patriots like Kaepernick control companies like NIKE, NIKE has joined those who say anything and everything from our founding era must be discarded. Even our flag!
Thanks for the stand you are taking!
THE PETITION STATES:
To: NIKE Officials
I'm joining the "Just Say NO to NIKE" campaign to let you know I am outraged by your purging of the Betsy Ross flag. Because you bowed to politically correct pressure and said no to one of our nation's first official flags, I'm just saying NO to NIKE and NIKE products until you stop these attacks.
