Amid media-driven division, American ‘pride’ drops to all time low

United we stand, divided we fall.

The constant, whirring drivel that invades our homes is taking its toll on America, her people, their civility, and their psyche.

This agitated noise, emanating from deep within the corporate recesses of the mainstream media, is meant to divide us.  It is meant to anger us.  Its purpose is turbulence, and it’s working.

The reason the infotainment industry divides us is simple:  Chaos equal cash.  Angry Americans clashing in the streets of Portland, Oregon?  Broadcast it live and gouge those looking to advertise live!  Ratings bring revenue, and nothing rakes in the viewers like conflict.

It’s unhealthy, to say the least, and a new poll shows that Americans just aren’t that proud to be American anymore.

As Americans prepare to celebrate the Fourth of July holiday, their pride in the U.S. has hit its lowest point since Gallup’s first measurement in 2001. While 70% of U.S. adults overall say they are proud to be Americans, this includes fewer than half (45%) who are “extremely” proud, marking the second consecutive year that this reading is below the majority level. Democrats continue to lag far behind Republicans in expressing extreme pride in the U.S.

These findings are explored further with new measurements of the public’s pride in eight aspects of U.S. government and society. American scientific achievements, military and culture/arts engender the most pride, while the U.S. political system and health and welfare system garner the least.

The highest scores for American pride came soon after the attacks of 9/11 and the election of Barack Obama, the first ever African American President of the United States.

This sharp decline coincides with the election of Donald Trump, but there is a glaring disparity that won’t allow the two events to be directly correlated:  The US economy is booming at the moment, and the CEO in Chief is breaking financial records nearly-weekly.

No, the negativity is not coming from Trump’s actions, rather, it is deriving all of its power from the “resistance” and their media surrogates.
