If there wasn’t enough insanity floating out in the world today to convince you our future in this country is in big, big trouble, here’s a little something that might get you off the fence.Mark Dice, a man famous for producing “gotcha”-type videos online recently put together some man-on-the-street style interviews in San Diego to ask average Americans about our nation’s history in light of the upcoming Independence Day weekend.
The responses he received are the stuff nightmares are made of.
Truth Revolt is reporting,The responses were disheartening, to say the least.
Most of those interviewed did not correct Dice when he facetiously said that America declared its independence “from China,” and that President Abe Lincoln’s assassin, John Wilkes Booth, along with former WWF wrestler and Minnesota governor Jesse “The Body” Ventura, were founding fathers.When asked who his favorite founding father was, one passerby simply said, “Jeremiah.”
At the end of the video, thankfully two interview subjects did get the answers correct, one even reciting the preamble of the U.S. Constitution.
Gotcha-style videos can of course be edited to make anyone look bad, but given that enough people interviewed answered these very basic questions incorrectly, we felt it worth sharing — because the truth is these folks do exist. And worst of all, they may very well vote.
Truly frightening, isn’t it?These poor folks are the product of an education system that has long abandoned teaching true American history and avoids instilling students with a sense of pride in their country at absolutely any cost.
As a result, it seems people are more clueless than ever before, making them perfect targets to fall for the insanity being pushed by an out-of0control, ever-expanding government.
Our nation is truly the last beacon of freedom and hope in the world, which is why it’s even more critical its citizens understand the principles on which this country was built and the men and women who were instrumental in laying the foundation of all we hold dear.
Without this understanding, we’ll never rally together to defend the freedom being snatched away bit by bit as the tentacles of soft tyranny slowly choke the soul of our nation.
