The problem is not that Americans are patriotic
The problem is not that Americans love their country
The problem is not that Americans are proud to be Americans
Those are all fine
The Problems are that a significant minority Americans think every other country in the world is shit, that non American are inferior and that people who are not white are not actually human and that over 70% of the nation suffer from the Dunning Kruger effect.
I never thought America was number one. There is so much dirt from the beginning of this country to the present. Murdering Native Americans, dragging African people from their country to become slaves to landowners, meanwhile torturing and murdering them, locking up Japanese Americans during WW2, the ongoing oppression of people of color. Surely NOT number one.
