American Schools Are Failures: Most Americans Don’t Know What Bill of Rights Is

The poll tends to prove that liberals have succeeded in undermining America though the thorough destruction of the quality of our education.

Bill of rights

A new study of Americans finds that few have any idea what freedoms are protected by the first ten amendments of the Constitution nor do they know these amendments are called the Bill of Rights. It just shows that the liberals controlling our system of miseducation have succeeded in undermining this country and that our schools are some of America’s biggest enemies.

Our schools are failures at teaching and turning out Americans, certainly. But they are a great success at turning out morons and sheep, and this poll proves it.

The poll posted to StudyFinds.com finds that most Americans have some vague idea that our First Amendment rights are under attack, but when asked to detail just what the First Amendment is, most had no idea how to respond.

The new poll found that six in ten Americans thought our freedom of speech was under attack. That is a good thing… though it should be ten in ten. But, still, at least a majority understand that the left is attacking our rights.

Unfortunately, the study also found that most couldn’t name what rights the First Amendment covers nor could they even say how many Amendments make up the Bill of Rights, nor even say what that name even meant.

“Of the 2,000 adults who took part in the poll, half thought that ‘liberty’ is one of the five freedoms protected by the First Amendment, while nearly half (49 percent) believed ‘the pursuit of happiness’ was included,” the poll said. “Thankfully, only 3 percent named ‘life’ as one of the protected freedoms.”

I am not sure why the folks at StudyFinds thought it was “thankfully” that only a small percentage thought “life” was in the First Amendment but be that as it may.

The poll also found that only 26 percent of respondents knew that the first ten Amendments made up the Bill of Rights. And one in five had never even heard of the name “Bill of Rights.”

“The online epidemic of misinformation, false news stories and election disinformation campaigns pose significant threats to democratic rights. The respondents’ alarm is well-placed,” says Alan C. Miller, founder and CEO of the News Literacy Project, a national nonpartisan education nonprofit that teamed up with Samuel Hubbard to bring awareness to the First Amendment, in a statement.

The poll tends to prove that liberals have succeeded in undermining America though the thorough destruction of the quality of our education.

Millions of kids every year are being dumbed down and indoctrinated in leftism in our fetid schools. And this is being done by design. Liberals do not want educated Americans. They want indoctrinated sheep.

The left is against teaching what our founders wanted, what they planned, how they argued, where the compromised, and what they finally ended up bequeathing to us.

Benjamin Franklin is alleged to have told a woman that that the founding fathers had left posterity “a Republic, if you can keep it.” By that, he meant that a representative republic can only work with an informed and virtuous voting public.

Well, liberals do not want us to “keep” that republic. They want a malleable system open only to their whim, influence, and guidance and an educated populace is an impediment to their leftism.

They have totally eliminated the teaching of why America IS America. And this poll proves that the left is succeeding in destroying this country from within.

BOMBSHELL: New Report to Show Obama Interfered MORE Than Putin In 2016 Election

WELL, WELL, WELL!!

Now that President Trump has cleared of “colluding” with Russia during the 2016 election, more and more information points to the Obama White House’s wrongdoing. It looks like a new report, set to drop in May or June, will show that Barack Obama interfered more in the 2016 presidential election that Russian President Vladimir Putin. Former US Attorney Joe diGenova recently appeared on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.” He noted, “The Horowitz report is coming out in May or early June. There’s another report that everyone has forgotten about involving James Comey alone. That will be out in two weeks. That report is going to be a bombshell. It is going to open up the investigation on a very high note and there are going to be criminal referrals in it.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWH8i5jQNPM MORE: BREAKING: FBI agents Joe Pientka and Mike Gaeta, along with DOJ official Stu Evans, are figuring prominently as witnesses in IG Horowitz’s investigation of department FISA abuses.

INSTANT CLASSIC: AOC Tries To Shame ‘GOP’ Lawmaker, But It Turns Out He Is A Democrat

A MUST SHARE!

Oh man, LOL. OH, BOY!! Freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez…(pause to take a breath from laughing)…thought she was attacking the GOP. Instead, she proved how ignorant she truly is by knowing that Rep. John Yarmouth is a Democrat. If this isn’t an instant classic than nothing is! From Daily Wire: Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tried to suggest a “GOP” lawmaker was being creepy for taking a picture next to a poster cutout of her and ended up being widely mocked for not realizing that the lawmaker was actually a Democrat. The Kentucky Republican Party posted a picture of Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) next to a cutout poster of Ocasio-Cortez in a tweet, writing: “#ThrowbackThursday last month the socialists threatened the lone #Kentucky #Democrat in Congress if he didn’t bend to their radical, extremist will: looks like @AOC and #socialism are calling the shots for @KyDems now!” https://twitter.com/KYGOP/status/1121440855770968065?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121440855770968065&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F46420%2Focasio-cortez-tries-attack-gop-lawmaker-being-ryan-saavedra AOC’s response: https://twitter.com/seanmdav/status/1121455629149921280?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121455629149921280&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F46420%2Focasio-cortez-tries-attack-gop-lawmaker-being-ryan-saavedra YIKES! https://twitter.com/seanmdav/status/1121451199918739456?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1121451199918739456&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F46420%2Focasio-cortez-tries-attack-gop-lawmaker-being-ryan-saavedra Right before the screw up, AOC was doing what she does best: blasting Republicans on Twitter. LOOK: To avoid looking completely + utterly out of touch w/ the reality our prison system: Instead of asking, “Should the Boston Bomber have the right to vote?” Try, “Should a nonviolent person stopped w/ a dime bag LOSE the right to vote?” Bc that question reflects WAY more people. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1121421715324772354 Reminder: – Slavery ➡️ Jim Crow + Redlining ➡️ War on Drugs ➡️ Mass Incarceration – Black Americans & PoC are far more likely to be convicted + sentenced longer than White Americans for similar crimes. – Our system routinely criminalizes poverty + exonerates wealth https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1121434432840376322 Many rebut the voting question by saying, “Well, *those* people shouldn’t be jailed.” Glad you feel that way! But the truth is, the US incarcerates more people per capita than anywhere in the…
