Weep for America: a Generation of Air-Heads

Check out this video by Mark Dice: what do everyday Americans know about the birth of their country?

Uh, virtually nothing.

They think we won our independence from China in 1872.

They think our Founding Fathers included Jesse Ventura and John Wilkes Booth. And also somebody named “Jeremiah.”

They are not new arrivals from countries far away, but home-grown Americans–disabled by an American public school education.

It’s hard to hold on to something that you don’t value.

It’s going to be hard to hold on to America.
