Do Americans need to learn to love America again in order to stand up for her and succeed again? GERMANY is talking about this…..FINALLY. I think that’s a VERY good thing.
Germany had been an amazingly innovative, clever, powerful country …until the bad times came in the early 20th century….followed by the worst time ever; the NAZI years. It was the land of Goethe, Martin Luther, Beethoven, etc….a country to be proud of…..and then the war. And then it was Germany again, vanquished for having murdered so many so brutally, seemingly never to regain its great pride. Pride, after all, is what many think caused Hitler. Pride, in a time when difficulties were overcoming the people with inflation, political upheaval, etc.
I once had a dear German friend, on the 4th of July in Munich, say “You Americans take pride in your country. We don’t.” She was in her early seventies and had learned not to love Germany because of the holocaust. They were taught to play down love of country. I have seen personally the hatred left wingers in Germany feel for their country.
I ask you about this because I believe our children are being taught to hate America. I see Obama in other countries warning of nationalism because he sees the patriotism and pride pushed for by Trump. I see people mock timeworn American traditions, treat the Constitution as something needing alteration, not standing for the National Anthem, etc. How many college students do you think really love America?
Do Americans need to learn to love America again to keep from destroying her from within? We’re changing our history, political correctness is allowing us to do things which put us last.
Obama was recently in Indonesia, telling an audience there that Americans are too nationalistic. Has the Left convinced Americans that being patriotic is like the rise of Hitler, a nationalism that should scare us?
Let’s talk. What do you think?
