    State of American Patriotism Report

    The Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness surveyed 1,000+ Americans (including samples of millennials and Gen Z) using the polling firm YouGov.

    Some of the findings are disappointing:

    3 in 10 Americans don’t consider themselves to be an American Patriot

    Only 1 in 6 Americans could identify the rights that are protected by the first amendment

    Half of all Americans call the country “sexist”

    1 in 5 Millennials say U.S. flag a “sign of intolerance and hatred”

    Half under 21 think Barack Obama had “more impact on America” than George Washington

    1 in 6 Americans don’t think patriotism is a good thing

    Half of all Americans call country “sexist”

    Half under 21 think Barack Obama had “more impact on America” than George Washington

    46% of young Americans believe u.s. is more “racist” than other nations

    Sounds like it's time for a purge.

    It's an interesting stat that 100% of Americans call the country sexist. They just don't do it at the same time.

    they may agree on the country being sexist, but half of them think the definite article has been illegitimate since before the civil war.

    Re: State of American Patriotism Report

    Without getting all wonky on the particulars of polling methodology and question phrasing, I found the data interesting.
    I recall seeing in Band of Brothers one of the men told of a young man in his town after Pearl Harbor who was told he was medically disqualified for service in the military, so he killed himself. I would not recommend any young person react in such a manner, but I would how many young people today would be that upset over being medically disqualified from military service versus how many would see that a s cause for celebration.

    And for flag etiquette, I see lots of adults who are flying unserviceable U.S. flags and the local American Legion chapter has a repurposed mailbox into which anyone with an unserviceable flag can drop it off and the Legion will dispose of it legally and properly.

    I just think this stuff matters.
