Radio show host Edward Woodson, took to the streets of South Florida to ask its citizens what we celebrate on the 4th of July.
We need to seriously examine what we teach our kids in schools, and immigrants in the so-called civics tests they are required to take before becoming U.S. citizens.

If you wonder how Obama was elected twice, wonder no more.
American History isn’t taught in public school. Or if it is, it’s been distorted by communist teachers.
Take a lefty to Dinesh D’Souza’s movie. It explodes the leftist mythos, a mythos built on lies.
My fav “I don’t subscribe to the government.” How do I get some of that?
These clips don’t mean a thing unless the full picture is presented. For all we know, the interviewer asked 100 people, and got only a few stupid answers. Then only the few stupid answers were aired.
I don’t doubt that many Americans are weak in their knowledge of US history. But these clips are edited more for shock value than anything else.
These are mostly Obama’s people. The only one who answered it correctly was a middle-aged white guy. Not surprised.
There is a lot of giggling going on in that horrible video display of our rotten public school system
The scary one is the self described Muslim who ‘doesn’t subscribe to celebrating our independence’ and knows exactly what it is and when it originated
He either swore allegiance to the flag or what is he doing here
Laura ingraham is more right than she probably knows
Wrongo. Every adult citizen in this country is required to know. The muslim knew. Everyone celebrating should know
If I’m wrong, then imagine if he had done his job and asked the appropriate next question that should’ve been asked
Do you vote?
This is easily believed
Half the population are stupid to the core, government public schools have brain washed the past two or so generations. Liberal media told them for decades now that men humping each other is something to be proud of while the same government imported half the third world here and continue to do so.
All while the same government now rides shotgun, escorting freight trains full of illegals and others from who knows where. Government has made American citizenship all but pointless.
The American population is being incrementally replaced by an ignorant low wage population who are quite happy with token government freebies, who never question the ruling class who controls them.
WELCOME to government schools dumbing down our children. This is what America gets. Since the 1960-early mid 1970s, when the commies started taking over the school systems, lead by the communist Dimocrats. If the Dims in D.C. watched these videos, they would be jumping up and down screaming mission accomplished. Their kids are sent to rich private schools, while the hood teaches stupidity to kids. Lord help this nation. It has gone down the drain and there is no way to stop the swirling of the toilet.
You have got to be shi$$ing me. Did you leave off your sarc notation. If not, you graduated in the same schools as these ignorant people. I can understand some of the apparent foreigners in the video but if you were born here and do not know that essential bit of US history, this country is doomed.
Correct. They don’t teach history. They have totally turned it into chapterbooks of leftist indoctrination.
Anybody besides me getting the feeling that we’re living in the movie “Idiocracy”?
Things are worse than I thought.
Well 100 is supposed to be the mean on an IQ test which means that 1/2 are below that number. What’s even scarier is that anything below 70 is considered mentally retarded (I’m using the clinical word here so don’t jump me for the recent PC crud associated with the word).
Some sources have 50% of the population with an IQ between 90-109. With only about 10% of the population are over 120, and a normal distribution would indicate that 10% are below 80. Ouch.
The stupidest people are obviously 0bama voters.
Independence from France. Russia.
These people have the same vote as me. Sad.
You completely missed the point of my post. I’m not saying that Americans know their history as well as they should. Because they don’t. I’m saying something else entirely.
Let’s suppose you watch a man-in-the-street interview video. And the question is: Who did America fight in WW II?
And let’s suppose 9 of the 10 people in the video said “England.” Can we then assume that 90% of the population thinks our enemy in WW II was England? No we can’t. In fact, we can’t assume anything at all here.
All you need to know is that the DEMOCRATS (in the form of the Teachers’ Unions) have had control of the schools for years and years .. try 50 years.
But, some districts, like those in Murrieta and Temecula, have a higher standard .. according to my family who’s children attend those schools.
So .. can anybody figure out why the aforementioned cities were chosen ..?? Much too nice a community; schools are better, etc. Can’t have that ..!!!!!!
Oh yeah .. it’s a HUGE Christian community.
