What happens when the Traditional American Values of God, Country, and Family are not taught to a generation of Americans?
FoxNews.com reports that
Millennials don’t value patriotism, family and religion as passionately as previous generations, according to a new survey.
“The values that Americans say define the national character are changing, as younger generations rate patriotism, religion and having children as less important to them than did young people two decades ago,” Wall Street Journal reporter Chad Day wrote about the results.
The survey, conducted by Wall Street Journal/NBC News, began 21 years ago when Americans were asked which values were most important to them and the majority responded that “principles of hard work, patriotism, commitment to religion and the goal of having children” were critical.
“Today, hard work remains atop the list, but the shares of Americans listing the other three values have fallen substantially,” Day wrote.
Patriotism being “very important” fell 9 percent, religion dropped 12 percent and having children fell a whopping 16 percent. Older participants still feel that patriotism is a priority, but younger people aren’t as enthusiastic.
“Among people 55 and older, for example, nearly 80 percent said patriotism was very important, compared with 42 percent of those ages 18-38 — the millennial generation and older members of Gen-Z,” Day noted before adding that the survey did find a few points of unity.
The study indicated that “a majority” of Americans are satisfied with the economy, while two-thirds aren’t confident the next generation will be “better off” than the current generation. The survey indicated the Democrats have changed more than Republicans.
“In fact, the views of Democrats over age 50 were more in line with those of younger Republicans than with younger members of their own party,” Day wrote. “In addition to differences in personal values, the poll lays out how the country has divided along partisan lines on many other views of society.”
When asked if “the country is becoming more diverse and tolerant of different lifestyles,” 63 percent of Democrats agreed with the notion compared to 16 percent of Republicans. Roughly half of Republicans feel the country is in good standing when it comes to race relations, while only 21 percent of Democrats agree.
The survey was conducted with a sample of 1,000 adults from Aug. 10-14.
If America was led by the likes of Modern American Liberals during the frightening days when Hitler rose to power after the Beer Hall Putsch and that faithful day of December 7, 1941, “a day which will live in infamy”, while at the same time the young Americans of that era were the millennials of today, would America have stood up the Axis of Evil?
Would the millennials that we are watching throwing hissy fits and railing against the President and traditional American Faith and Values on the Evening News and the Social Media have the guts to do what the Greatest Generation did?
Would Modern American Liberals be willing to make the sacrifices that my Daddy and Mother and the rest of their generation did?
I seriously doubt it.
There wouldn’t be long lines at the Armed Forces Recruitment Office trying to sign up to serve their country.
Heck, these days it is hard to get them to move out of their parents’ house, much less be willing to fight and die for their country.
There are those millennials out there who would rather defecate on our flag than to die for it.
And, while they talk a good game about being “Stronger Together”, when the rubber meets the road, it’s every man (or woman) for themselves.
Instead of the Greatest Generation, we are presently having to deal with the selfish “Generation Snowflake”.
It’s like watching an angry child in their Mom’s shopping cart at Walmart.
I want…I want…I…I…I…me…me…me…
No wonder they viewed Obama as their “messiah”.
As long as he had himself, he was never alone.
The survey in the above article has really driven this home to me.
Even with the Attorney General of the United States of America, along with Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller told Americans and the rest of the world that President Donald J. Trump did not work with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential Election, Generation Snowflake, like the child at Walmart who is told that they are not getting a toy that they see, firmly believe that if they keep crying, whining, and making stories up about how bad and evil that Trump is, somehow, Hillary Clinton, the deserving heir to their messiah, will magically become the President of the United States of America or one of the losers running for the Democratic Nomination will win the 2020 Presidential Election.
Just like you have to tell a petulant child over and over again why they cannot have a toy, average Americans here in the Heartland are having to explain ad infinitum to millennials of Generation Snowflake that WE are responsible for Donald J. Trump being the President of the United States of America.
There was no collusion.
There was no obstruction.
There was no Russian inference.
There WAS a visceral anger over the poor stewardship and performance of the Previous President and a deep and abiding concern for our children’s and grandchildren’s future.
And a lousy, unlikable Democratic Presidential Candidate who was and still is as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.
It is time for these precious snowflakes whom we call “millennials” to understand that there are no safe spaces and you do not always get your way in this life.
It is time for the National Temper Tantrum to end.
And for those throwing it to place country over self.
In other words…it is time for millennials to GROW UP.
Until He Comes,
