Embarrassed to be an American?


Well, this is embarrassing. As Americans celebrate the birthday of the Land of Liberty, a majority of students interviewed by Campus Reform say they’re not proud to be American.

Cover your ears Lee Greenwood.

Campus reform reporter Ophelie Jacobson interviewed students in the Georgetown neighborhood of the Nation’s Capital. Some told Jacobson they were “embarrassed” to be an American, because of oppression and stuff.

“I think a lot of things about this country are really embarrassing: racist history, colonization, even currently, just what’s going on with politics and the cops.”

“I think that’s a complicated question for me,” another student said in response to whether she was proud to be an American. “I think most of the time, no…at least over the past four years, it’s been tricky to love to be an American.”

Jacobson then asked students if they think the United States of America is the greatest country in this world.

“America is not really known for being the most hospitable place,” one student said.

But when asked if they could name a better country, no one could.

    Disgusting. These young, supposed scholars, have mush for brains. They can’t support their own country. As a vet; I tell them to walk through the rows and rows of white stones and crosses at Arlington National Cemetery and at cemeteries around the world and say that to the brothers and sisters who lie there having sacrificed for this great country. I would call these kids – punks and uneducated toddlers. They know nothing of hardship, sacrifice, work ethic, Christian morality and service to this nation. They simply take, take, take. And they want all things for free. Come to think of it: they don’t deserve to stand in the presence of those heroes in those cemeteries around the world.

    I’m more embarrassed that these fools are Americans but I guess every village needs an idiot.
