SHOCK POLL: Patriots ‘Made To Feel Ashamed’
A shocking new poll has revealed that over 20% of respondents believed that they would be “made to feel ashamed” if they openly displayed their patriotism. It also found that although one in 4 feel this is the least patriotic decade ever 79% of respondents sill identify as being patriotic and almost 90% of respondents also said they are “proud of their birthplace”.
However, the claim made that the younger generation place less importance on patriotism was disputed by Nathan Rydings, the Chair of Young Independence:
It truly is a sad time we live in when people are terrified to show their national pride because they will get abuse for it or even attacked.
I need to make this point very very clear, young people are not turning their backs on patriotism, it’s just young people can’t be vocal on the matter without being shut down by their colleagues and classmates, we know how the left like to attack people and shut down opinions, well that’s what’s happening with today’s youth.
