A Gallup poll has indicated that fewer Americans than ever are proud of their country, and that only a quarter of all Democrats find a lot of pride in being American.

The survey, found that 67% of Republicans are ‘extremely proud’ of their country compared to just 24% of Democrats.

Overall, feelings of pride among Americans have sunk to an all time low, according to the poll.

“Although a majority of adults in the U.S. still say they are ‘extremely proud’ (42%) or ‘very proud’ (21%) to be American, both readings are the lowest they have been since Gallup’s initial measurement in 2001,” the pollster noted.

A total of 36% of Americans said they are just “moderately proud” (15%) “only a little proud” (12%) or “not at all proud” (9%).

The figures show that American pride has decreased among Republicans from 76 percent just one year ago to 67 percent in 2020, a 9-percentage-point drop.

“The percentage of Americans expressing extreme pride in the country has been declining over the past 20 years, especially recently,” Gallup notes.

“Just over half, 55%, felt extreme pride in the initial January 2001 reading, prior to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. In the three subsequent years, between 65% and 70% were extremely proud as the public rallied around the flag. By 2005, that reading fell to 61% and remained steady until 2015 when it dropped to 54%. The current reading is the sixth consecutive year since then that it has fallen to a new low in Gallup’s trend,” the pollster adds.

The other notable finding was that extreme pride is down in all major subgroups, and has fallen below 50% among whites for the first time ever:

Gallup notes that the decrease in pride is a long term trend, and does not seem to dovetail with the election of President Trump, writing that “The current reading is the sixth consecutive year since then that it has fallen to a new low in Gallup’s trend.”

Looking at the figures, there was a peak of national pride at 92% around 2003, followed by an accelerating decline thereafter.

Does this indicate that the incessant everyday Anti-American propaganda programming of the mass media, the leftist controlled education system, and the Democratic Party is sinking into the psyche of all Americans?

Video: Biden Appears To Yell “My Butt’s Been Wiped” At A Reporter

It’s anyone’s guess what the hell he’s shouting here

As Joe Biden doddered up to a gaggle of reporters Sunday with all the grace of a reanimated corpse, he also seemed to yell “My butt’s been wiped” right into the face of one reporter who was shouting questions about immigration above the whirring of a helicopter.

Watch:

Maybe that’s not what he said, but yes, it is real:

The reporters all laughed as if this is completely normal behaviour for the so called leader of the free world.

Before shuffling off Biden said “There needs to be a pathway to citizenship whether it needs to be in immigration remains to be seen.”

Eh?

Anyone got any ideas what he actually yelled?

Truly bizarre.

Video: Capitol Defendant’s Attorney Says Detainees Are Being Subject To “TORTURE!” In Car Crash CNN Interview

“Are you OK with people being tortured five miles from the White House?”

An attorney for one of the defendants charged with infiltrating the U.S. Capitol building on January 6th alleged that his client and others are being brutally tortured “five miles from the White House” in an awkward interview on CNN Tuesday.

Joseph McBride was asked for comments relating to the eight month prison sentence given to Paul Hodgkins for merely walking into the building and sitting at Nancy Pelosi’s desk.

McBride, who represents another of the accused told CNN host John Avlon that “there are people who showed up to attack the Capitol, there are people who showed up to protest, and there are people who showed up to protest that got involved with the greater events of that day. And it is very important not to lump everybody in, not to define every protester that showed up that day as an insurrectionist — which, by the way, no one has been charged with.” 

Avlon then asked McBride about a comparison he made between the conditions the suspects are being held in and Nazi gulags, pouring scorn on the notion.

McBride urged that “People are being tortured. Tortured!” asking Avlon “Are you OK with people being tortured five miles from the White House?”

Avlon responded by saying that the claim was “an extraordinary statement that would seem to be utterly un-based in fact.”

McBride shot back yelling “Torture is never OK! TORTURE! TORTURE! TORTURE! TORTURE! TORTURE!” prompting Avlon to end the interview

“Keep yelling torture. We’ll stick with the facts,” he said.

“The facts are torture!” the attorney yelled back.

Watch:

It isn’t the first time that the claims of torture have arisen in regards to the Capitol ‘rioters’ who have been held for months without trial.

The inmates and some of their lawyers have alleged that they are being held in solitary confinement and have been subject to beatings, threats and verbal abuse by guards.

On attorney described his client Ryan Samsel’s face as looking “like a tomato that was stomped on,” after a beating by correctional officers that left him “blind in one eye, [with] a skull fracture and detached retina.”

Inmate Ronald Sandlin has also alleged that minority guards are targeting the mostly white inmates with racial abuse, specifically noting that one guard shouted “I hate all white people and your honky religion.”

Report: 9/11 Families Sick Of Democrats Saying Capitol Infiltration Was Worse

“They just dehumanize our families for political gain.”; “It’s a deliberate ploy.”

Families of those who died in the 9/11 attacks have slammed Democrats for repeatedly comparing the worst terrorist atrocity in U.S. history to the January 6th Capitol building infiltration, saying that the rhetoric is “inflated and ridiculous”.

Fox News reports that some families of 9/11 victims are ‘outraged’ over the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden claiming that. Jan 6 was “the worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War,” or that there should be a “9/11-style” commission.

Retired New York Deputy Fire Chief Jim Riches who lost his son, also a firefighter, told reporters “They’re comparing it to score points politically.”

“Are they kidding me? 3,000 people died, plus we have more people dying from the air that was down there,” Riches continued, adding “The families are really [angry]. When I talk to them, when they compare it to that, they find that outrageous.”

Debra Burlingame, whose brother was murdered aboard American Airlines Flight 77 before it crashed at the Pentagon, urged “There are a lot of young people who have no living memory of 9/11 … When you have all these comparisons and analogies, which are inflated and ridiculous, it minimizes what actually happened, and that’s what’s happening here. It’s a deliberate ploy.”

Joe Connor, who lost a cousin in the World Trade Center, noted “They just dehumanize our families for political gain. I guess they call it gaslighting.”

Connor continued, “They can say these things that will make people believe that these riots were worse than the worst thing that happened on American soil. Either they’re ignorant or they’re just really devious and clever, and you can put nothing past them, because if you’re willing to lie to that degree … It’s a disturbing trend to me.”

Don Arias, who lost a brother in the South Tower told Fox that “Clear thinking people see these inflammatory statements as the bulls–t they are. There’s no comparison.”

Another American, nicknamed “Grizzly Joe” lost four friends on 9/11 and told reporters “It strikes me that if folks need to compare January 6 to 9/11, they have no faith in their ability to portray January 6 as the unfortunate criminal act that it was.”

The report also notes that leftist “journalists” are mimicking the Democrat ploy:

Some among the Capitol Hill press corps have also complained that they are traumatised by the event that they “survived”, and refuse to go back into the building.

Democrats have used the Capitol breach to consolidate power and initiate a stasi-like security crackdown, beefing up the Capitol police.

Those arrested after the breach have been treated like terrorists.
