Patriotism and a love for the U.S. has steadily declined in recent years as communist and marxist leaders have infiltrated universities and promoted ideas like critical race theory.
As these ideas have gained prominence, many Americans have turned against their own nation. Thankfully, the majority still support the U.S. and its flag. Story continues below.
The Convention of States Action released a new poll this week that found nearly a third of Democrats don’t support the flag, but over 90% of Republicans do. Overall, about 81% of Americans say pride or patriotism describes how they feel about the American flag.
“Heading into the Olympics, these numbers demonstrate that—on issue after issue—America is still America, a nation of good and decent people. The public isn’t buying the lie that our flag is a ‘symbol of hatred’ or oppression, and our Olympians are proud to represent the stars and stripes in Tokyo, ” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “And for those few who said they feel shame, indifference, or suspicion when thinking about our flag, I’d like to remind them that the right to express that view was paid for by the blood of men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect this symbol of freedom around the world.”
The poll surveyed over 1,000 likely 2022 voters from July 12th through July 13th. The poll found that “93.9% of Republican voters say pride or patriotism best describes how they feel about the American flag” while only 70.1% of Democrats agree.
Meanwhile, “82.2% of Independent voters say pride or patriotism best describes how they feel about the American flag.” However, “5% of American voters say shame best describes how they feel about the American flag.”
The American flag has become an increasingly controversial symbol as critical race theory and other America-hating doctrines are teaching people that the U.S. is fundamentally racist and must be totally overhauled.
It seems at least for now, lovers of freedom and America are still winning the battle.
