POLL: Only 63% of American Adults Are “Proud to be an American”

Record low national pride.

Published

on

American citizenship is increasingly meaningless for a considerable demographic of American adults.

New polling from Gallup indicates that a record low percentage of American adults describe themselves as “proud to be an American.” Only 63% of poll respondents in the June poll answered the question in the affirmative, when asked if they were either “very proud” or “extremely proud” to be an American.

The combined 63% of Americans who identified with national pride is the lowest combined percentage of adults who answered as such since Gallup first began polling public opinion on the question in 2001. The decline in national percentage appears to coincide concisely with the nationwide race riots and protests following the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd during an arrest.

Curiously, a breakdown of the data suggests that pride in being an American has declined primarily among Republicans. Democratic pride in being an American declined starkly after Donald Trump’s election and inauguration, but has actually increased slightly in the wake of the protests and riots.

As the major American institutions are wholly dominated and weaponized by the cultural left in an scorched-effort campaign to punish traditional and conservative Americans, it’s probably more likely than not that pride in being an American will continue to decline, most prominently among the demographics that have traditionally expressed it in the most resounding fashion.

NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor

Published

On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.

Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.

Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.

The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.

Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.

Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.

Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
