A survey has revealed that one in five American millennials views the US flag as “a sign of intolerance and hatred,” and two in five millennials think burning Old Glory is perfectly acceptable.

 Millennials are not the only ones who lack patriotism, according to the report. Allegiance to the United States seems to be declining among the majority young Americans.

 Astonishingly, forty-six percent of young Americans, defined as ages 14-37, disagreed with the statement, “America is the greatest country in the world.” The survey did not ask them to name which country they think is the greatest, if it is not the United States.

 In addition, 53% of the same age group said they believe the United States is a “sexist” country, and 54% believe it is a “racist” country.

 CNS reports: The survey was conducted by the public opinion firm YouGov for the Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness (FLAG), a non-profit organization that educates Americans “about the values and principles that make our nation exceptional.”

 FLAG founder Nick Adams said he was “totally unprepared” for the “epidemic of anti-Americanism” the survey revealed.

“That half of millennials and Gen Z believe that the country in which they live is both ‘racist’ and ‘sexist’ shows that we have a major fraction of an entire generation that has been indoctrinated by teachers starting in grade school that America is what’s wrong with the world,” Adams said.

 According to FLAG, the report indicated a possible “crisis,” as “younger Americans are becoming unmoored from the institutions, knowledge, and the American spirit that keeps America great.”

 For example, younger Americans seem more apt to embrace socialism. When asked whether America’s future “should be driven by capitalism or socialism,” 48% of younger Americans chose socialism.

 FLAG also suggested the possibility of  “recency bias among the young,” demonstrated by the fact that 55% of Americans 18-21 think Barack Obama has had a bigger impact on the country than George Washington.

 Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin highlighted the report on the Nov. 29 episode of his program, “The Mark Levin Show.” He blamed the government-run public school system, and members of the older generation, for the lack of patriotism in young America.

“All these state-supported universities and colleges, really, are abysmal – absolutely abysmal,” Levin said. “When you mix that with what you see on TV and what you hear on other radio, and then the crap that’s in the books, and then you hear Obama say what he says, and these other jerks say what they say, I don’t even blame these kids. It’s our generation doing it to them.”

“It’s not education; it’s indoctrination,” he added later. “It’s propaganda.”

 The survey also found a lack of basic civics and government knowledge among Americans of all ages. Eight in 10 Americans cannot name the five freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment (speech, press, religion, assembly and petition). And, according to the report, “less than half of respondents know how many amendments were in the bill of rights” (ten).

 The survey did yield some encouraging results. FLAG reported that members of young Generation Z (ages 14-17) were the age group most likely to know when the Constitution was ratified and how many amendments are in the Bill of Rights.

 In addition, 78% of younger Americans said they were proud to be Americans and 85% said they enjoyed seeing Old Glory displayed on the Fourth of July, although these numbers were much higher among older generations.

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
