How do you spell ‘independence’? Turns out 1 in 3 Americans have no idea!

Survey reveals that 2 in 3 young adults don’t know who America declared its independence from in 1776!

NEW YORK — Independence Day may be synonymous with summer, but a new survey finds many Americans should go back to school! It turns out one in three people don’t know how to spell “independence” — and even fewer know why Americans celebrate on the Fourth of July!

Specifically, the poll of 1,030 Americans, commissioned by Lawsuit.org, found over a third spell independence incorrectly. Moreover, researchers add that internet searches for “how to spell independence” skyrocket by 85 percent during the July 4th holiday weekend.

The most common way people misspell this important word in the American lexicon is by using an “a” — spelling it “independance.”

Other common misspellings include independense, indpendence, indiependence, and independents — which is actually a real word, but there’s no such thing as Independents Day.

Are you an indepen-dunce?

Spelling isn’t the only thing giving many people trouble on the Fourth of July. The survey also discovered that plenty of respondents deserve an F in American history.

As most elementary school students could tell you, July 4th commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 — signaling the nation’s freedom from British rule. However, the poll found two in three young adults in Gen Z don’t know who America declared its independence from.

In fact, one in three Gen Zers think July 4th celebrates America’s independence from the Native Americans!

Overall, less than 58 percent of all respondents correctly answered that America gained its freedom from Great Britain. Nearly eight percent said “Europe.” Over eight percent said “South America” and more than 12 percent chose “none of the above!” Perhaps these respondents think the sci-fi blockbuster “Independence Day” is a documentary.

The embarrassing American trivia doesn’t end there. The poll also found plenty of people who need a refresher course on the American flag.

One in 10 respondents didn’t know how many stripes are on the American flag. While red, white, and blue may be easy to remember, the poll finds the average American thinks there are 14 stripes on the flag — instead of the correct answer of 13, which symbolize the original 13 colonies.

So, regardless of how you spell it, Happy independance… independense… (oh, the heck with it) Happy Fourth of July!

Comments

  1. Poor headline and incorrect. It states 2 out of 3 didn’t know we got our independence from Great Britain yet the raph shows 58% did know the fact. What’s up?

        1. Yes, I use that term often to describe Americans.

          Most of them don’t know what it means.

    1. This article is poorly worded. The 58% in the chart are *all* respondents, and we were correct. The “One Third” is Gen Z, and 34% of them thought independence was declared from the Native Americans.

  2. Find the spelling error. From the above article, “Survey reveals that 2 in 3 young adults don’t know who American declared its independence from in 1776!”

  3. John Hancock (upset King didn’t make him governor), Samuel Adams (bar owner) and others rose up to eliminate the taxes imposed by GB to pay for the French Indian war. Southern slave holders joined in because GB was becoming more and more abolishtionish. Merchants joined in to gain better economic footing.

  4. This is hardly a surprising result.

    Only slightly more Americans know the Earth rotates around the sun.

    Just under 50% of Americans can find their own country on an unnamed map of the world.

    Just 20 percent of Americans can point in the direction of the Atlantic Ocean.

    Most Americans can’t name a single continent or know how many continents there are.

    Close to 80% of Americans don’t know the Earth rotates around the sun once a year rather than once a day.

    But 8 in 10 Americans believe in angels.
    1 in 3 Americans believe in Astrology.

    about 40 percent of Americans reject evolution.

    About 1 in 4 Americans claim that Global Warming is a scam.

    And about 30 % of Americans are Republicans.

    Republicans are overwhelmingly stupid.

      1. Texas educator group proposes referring to slavery as “involuntary relocation”
        in second grade curriculum

        A group of Texas educators have proposed to the Texas State Board of Education
        that slavery should be taught as “involuntary relocation” during second grade
        social studies instruction.

        Part of the proposed draft standards that were obtained by The Texas Tribune
        say that students should “compare journeys to America, including voluntary
        Irish immigration and involuntary relocation of African people during colonial

        This process comes as the state’s public education system has become heavily
        politicized, from lawmakers passing legislation on how race and slavery should
        be taught in schools to conservative political action committees pouring huge
        amounts of money to put more conservatives on school boards that promise to get
        rid of curriculum and programs they deem are divisive and make white children

    1. Some x are y does not necessitate all x are y, weird how this simple principle is so hard for humans to grasp. Moron.

      1. Are you referring to symbolic logic…or chromosomes? The politically correct term for “moron” is “otherwise mentally engaged.” I guess in your case picking your nose every five minutes or less would qualify.

    2. It’s smart to vote for corporatist, war-mongering, big-government, high-tax, economy-destroying Democrats? Who woulda thunk it?!?

      1. High taxes? Republicans have been claiming to be cutting your taxes for the last 50 years. Since Reagan started back in 1980.

        Your taxes should be zero by now.

        Or have the Republicans been lying through their teeth about cutting taxes for the last half century?

        Maybe it wasn’t your taxes they were cutting?

        Hahahahahahaha…. Hilarious

      1. That is what Faux news is telling you to believe. And you believe it like the trained dog you are.

        If you remember, 6 years ago Faux news was telling people that Hillary Clinton was close to death because she fell once.

        Conservatives believed that too.

        Because they are spectacularly stupid and easily manipulated.

      2. What does it say of the opposition that such an event could take place? How is it the Republicans DIDN’T win? You either go with the notion that the election was stolen, which saner and more informed Republicans don’t believe, or you believe that the GOP was fractured along Trump/not Trump lines.

        And this whole illiteracy among the young regarding Independence Day calls into fond memory Trump’s wonderful speech about our Revolutionary War heroes seizing the British airfields.

        I miss those days. He was so much fun.

    3. If 30% of americans are Republicans and republicans are overwhelming stupid, yet, 80 % of Americans don’t know the Earth rotates around the sun once a year, then 50 of that 80 at least are not Republicans. Therefore, your argument results in more stupid people who are not republicans. According to your logic.

    4. You are just as big a dumb bass. ( Stupid fresh water fish )You probably believe Joe Biden got 81 million votes and AMERIKA was founded by Karl Marx.

      1. SuperDelagate seems to be a typical Republican with the corresponding very, very low IQ.

        The Republican Party is a Clown Show.

      1. Why are you talking to yourself Scott? Is it because you forgot who you are?

        Americans… Dumber than dirt.

    5. Oh, FFS. You are pulling those stats out of your rear end.

      Yes, we have failed at educating at least a couple of generations of kids.

      You, are an example of that failure.

      For example, the Earth revolves around our sun each year, it does not rotate around it. The Earth rotates on its own axis each day. You made that error twice in your screed.

      And, just to rub it in, a Republican corrected your ignorance of celestial mechanics.

      1. “Earth revolves around our sun each year, it does not rotate around it.”

        Rotate – Definition
        move or cause to move in a circle around an axis or center.

        So you don’t know the definition of the word “Rotate” either.

        American dumb on full public display…

    6. Thanks for showing just how ignorant you are and are most Liberals.

      1. Some of the smartest people to ever live believed in God- Einstein, Hawkings, Feinman. They know that Nothing can come from Nothing- and something had to put the material into existence to start the Big Bang.

      2. I would rather believe in God and be wrong than not believe in God and be wrong. At least with the former nothing bad happens, with the latter- you end up spending eternity in torment.

      3. Liberals believe that there are more than 2 genders- Hate to break it to you there aren’t. The others are just constructs of a human mind and a sick one at that.

      4. No matter how much evidence is presented to Liberals they refuse to accept they may be wrong. Let’s see- Global Warming. IN the 70’s it was global warming and we would be out of oil in 20 years, in the 80’s it was Global Cooling, in the 2000’s it was Climate Change, now you are back to Global Warming. Many prominent Scientists have proven that the earth goes through these cycles, but far be it from me to doubt a genius like Al Gore over Scientist who aren’t bought off and do actual research.

      And yes the Climate does change but that’s Nature.

      Also- Liberals with Oil, “We need to stop drilling for Oil anywhere in the United States” – too ignorant to realize that the US has the strictest Environmental laws on the planet. do you think Russia, Venezuela, Iran care one bit if the oil spills into the ocean or on the land. They’ll just let it sit there and poison everything. But you guys are too blind to see that.

      1. “Some of the smartest people to ever live believed in God- Einstein, Hawkings, Feinman.”

        None of the above scientists believed in God.

        Americans are made from pure Stupid.

        1. Honestly

          In my experience liberal progressives don’t know anything related above in the survey

        2. From this time forward, I propose we refer to July 4 as INDEPENDENCE DAY!
          So many young people do not know why we celebrate this holiday. They are promoting and voting for a more oppressive and intrusive government similar to the one we fought to free the colonies from with our war for independence. Once freedom and liberty are lost, a war may be the only way to reclaim these precious paragons

          Under Biden we are losing our liberty and freedom on a nearly daily basis! Memember in November.

          Soylentgreentea, please consult a surgeon to correct your rectal cranium inversion.

          1. “Under Biden we are losing our liberty and freedom on a nearly daily basis!”

            You must be referring to the freedom of access to safe and effective abortions.

            A freedom taken away by Republican governors in half of America.

            LOL.

            Republican = AmeriKKKook.

      1. Stupidity does reside within the Republican party but anyone pretending it is exclusive to Republicans is really stupid.

        Democrats have more than their share of stupidity and science denial.

        1. You are absolutely correct. Americans in general are dumber than what they flush down the toilet, but Republicans aren’t smart enough to wipe.

      2. You are the problem. You voted for a senile pedophile who has destroyed our energy sector, and has been bought off by the Chinese. Where did Joepedo get his millions? He’s only ever been a government employee. Right, republicans are stupid. Who’s stupid is the idiots that voted to open the border and end our energy independence. Say all the BS you want, but you and your ilk will be wiped out in November. As you should be. Oh yea, go read Ashley Biden’s diary and then defend Joementia’s actions with his young daughter. You people are sick.

        1. “You voted for a senile pedophile who has destroyed our energy sector, and has been bought off by the Chinese.”

          LOL. More Bat Shi* crazy from an American Republican.

          They live in a land of KKKook fart Fantasy, where shape shifting alien pedophiles live in the hollow core of the Earth to eat children and capture the world for Lucifer.

          Crazy times in America as these KKKlueless fascist KKKristians take over and run their country into the ground.

          I have popcorn.

          1. According to his own daughter’s writings, Joe Biden took showers with her when she was younger. Are you saying Ashley Biden doesn’t know what she’s talking about?

          2. Go to a public sauna in Finland.

            People there will be naked.

            Americans have a problem with nudity and public bathing because they are immature and incapable of acting like adults.

            I have a memory of bathing with my father, and somewhere I have an 8mm film of me bathing with my brother under my parents supervision when I was around 2 years old.

            American nonsensibilities are laughed at all over the world.

    7. So voting for the corporatist stooge, war-mongering, anti-American, big government, high-tax, doomsday Democrats is the smart move? Oh Kay.

      I wonder if one of y’all’s penis-flaying surgeons will be able to remove your head from your butt.

      1. The world is filled to the brim with Liberal school systems, and all of them perform better than those in America.

        What is it about American Culture that makes it such a spectacular failure at everything?

        Oh yes… Now I remember…. It’s because Americans are Exceptional.

        Hahahahahahahh…….

    8. This is an indicator of how poor our, none-the-less, richly-endowed public school system is and how Dem-run institutions – ie public schools – have cheated students in K-12 and beyond. This statement is not an oxymoron. The above lengthy statement is true – the dumbing down of our educational system has put the US in a box with 5-6 corners, not the traditional four. It’s corrupted body and soul of American students with the leniency, laziness and watered-down grade allowances. Teachers will do anything to pass a poorly-prepared student so their own reputations remain ‘untarnished’ by lax teaching policy.

      1. I am in agreement here. Students who do not perform should not graduate.

        But that isn’t the problem with the education in the U.S. It is just a symptom of the real issue, which is the failure of American Culture, which has allowed itself to be destroyed by Capitalism.

    9. Republicans, on average, have higher IQ’s than Democrats. The stronger the Republican, the higher the IQ. As a person moves farther toward the left of the political spectrum (in terms of Republican/Democrat), the lower the average IQ.

      This was meticulously (and reluctantly) documented in 2014 by Oxford sociologist and resident Democrat Noah Carl in the journal Intelligence. When comparing strong Republicans to strong Democrats, Carl found that the average Republican IQ was 5.48 points higher than the average Democrat IQ. When considering moderate Republicans and moderate Democrats, the Republicans were 3.47 points higher. When comparing Republican-leaning centrists vs. Democrat-leaning centrists, the gap narrowed even more, with Republicans coming in 2.47 points higher than Democrats.

      Higher IQ is associated with classical liberalism, which can be conveniently defined by two broad metrics: social values and economics. Both Republicans and Democrats are a mixed bag on the former. Republicans tend to favor traditional freedoms, such as freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion; but they tend to reject progressive moral values, such as LGBT acceptance. Democrats are the opposite, favoring an authoritarian view when it comes to traditional freedoms (as documented by a 2012 study in the American Journal of Social Science, in case anyone wants to argue about that) and a more liberal view on progressive moral values.

      In terms of economic freedom, Republicans tend to espouse the liberal position, favoring a free market, while Democrats tend to espouse economic statism, or the view that the State should exert direct control over the economy.

      Theoretically, the smartest people are those who are both socially and economically liberal, while the dumbest people (bless their hearts) are those who are both socially and economically authoritarian. As it stands currently, the Republicans have a 5.47 point edge over the Democrats when it comes to social and economic liberalism.

      Turn out you’re wrong. And dumb.

      1. “Republicans, on average, have higher IQ’s than Democrats”

        Is that why people with degrees are overwhelmingly Liberal?

        Hahahahahah….

        RepubliKKKans are absolute kooks.

    10. The failed California liberal experiment is proof of where the country is going. What good has come out of California? Yet liberals are enthralled with it. Failure since the late 90’s has caught up with the state. Now a plague that has crept into everything it touches nationwide.

      Bring on the the civil war, I have a bullet for ever liberal media member that pushes communism, death of America, and the “me” agenda.

      I’m an independent that is prepared to remove by “deadly force” those that want to change America from a Republic.

      Vendicar and the absent minded liberal experimentees that have destroyed America each get a bullet. I’ve got the guns and ammo to help. Time to end the liberal experiment.

      1. “What good has come out of California?”

        Well, the cell phone in your pocket, the computer on your desk. The operating system that runs your computer, and of course the pioneering development of circuit integration, and microprocessors.

        Oh my God you are a dim whit. You don’t even know that silicon valley is in California.

        You can thank the Liberal state for all of that and much, much more.

      2. “Bring on the the civil war, I have a bullet for ever liberal media member that pushes communism, death of America, and the “me” agenda.”

        How many Liberals do you intend to Murder Mr. Republican?

        You White Supremacist Retards make me laugh.

    11. As usual, smug condescending arrogant liberals attack conservative while tip toeing around what the real issue is..that teachers who are predominantly liberal are failing to educate our kids. Teachers should be fired and teacher unions ought to be destroyed. Liberal’s, this is your fault, you own this and you should be ashamed for failing these kids….but the truth is..liberals have no shame and always refuse to face their failure: example: Joe Biden.

      1. “teachers who are predominantly liberal are failing to educate our kids.” – Clueless Steve Fitzgerald

        You can’t teach students who refuse to learn.
        You wouldn’t know that because Republicans are just as unwilling to learn.

        If you were capable of learning you wouldn’t be a Republican traitor to your own nation, now would you?

        Americans have been growing dumber and dumber with each passing generation.

        It is at the point now where the majority of Republicans can no longer distinguish material fact from Faux news fiction.

        So now the American Republican party believes the world is controlled by a cabal of alien pedophiles who have a base in the hollow core of the flat Earth.

        Meanwhile they vote for a president who publicly admitted that he wanted to date his own daughter.

        LOL!

        It’s hilarious. Watching Republican America destroy America.

      1. Not many. The current crop, see how disgustingly evil American Republicans have become and don’t want anything to do with those people.

        It doesn’t make them any smarter, but it does make them morally superior to any existing Republican.

      1. You mean ‘Troll’? Were you one of those they surveyed and failed at spelling?
        I bet you think the Rainbow flag is/should be the official American flag.

    12. Your part of the problem …. it’s not Republicans … it’s not most Democrats… It’s assholes like you…

    13. These stats are similar to ones which state Biden has a 38% approval rating. Did you pull these stats from where your head is? I call bull sheet.

    14. Lashing out and blaming Republicans is little more than a failure of your own intelligence. Sadly you reinforce the notion it’s them against us.

      1. Yes it is exactly like a sane person going to a clown party, and referring to everyone as clowns.

        It proves that the non-clown is in fact a clown.

        Your American logic is flawless.

    15. What a moronic post by someone who is projecting to be an educated elitist. Global Warming is nothing more than an elitist push for full control over our resources only affordable to those who make a six-digit salary or part of the Democrat Party. It makes me feel good to see your comment 8 of 10 Americans believe in Angels. At least 8 of the 10 do NOT believe in the elitist/ progressive religion of Secular Humanism.

      1. “Global Warming is nothing more than an elitist push for full control over our resources”

        And that is why the measured, global surface temperature is increasing, polar ice caps are melting, and much of the U.S. is quickly reverting to a Sahara like desert.

        You are made from pure stupid, Republican Boy.

      1. Conservative Texas educator group proposes referring to slavery as “involuntary relocation”
        in second grade curriculum

        A group of Texas educators have proposed to the Texas State Board of Education
        that slavery should be taught as “involuntary relocation” during second grade
        social studies instruction.

        Part of the proposed draft standards that were obtained by The Texas Tribune
        say that students should “compare journeys to America, including voluntary
        Irish immigration and involuntary relocation of African people during colonial

        This process comes as the state’s public education system has become heavily
        politicized, from lawmakers passing legislation on how race and slavery should
        be taught in schools to conservative political action committees pouring huge
        amounts of money to put more conservatives on school boards that promise to get
        rid of curriculum and programs they deem are divisive and make white children

      1. Antifa is a contraction of Anti Fascist.

        Fascists see anti-fascism (Antifa) as the enemy.

    16. Why do you think that? Democratic TEACHERS Unions have been the source of all this “info” and indoctrination for 40 years ! So who is to blame ?? Your facts come from the back of a cereal box! Wake up read something besides CNN and MSMbs or the 5 , SAD Sad and you think your going to fix what calling out a Political party?

    17. It’s got nothing to do with politics this demonstrates the utter failure of our educational system. I wonder how homeschoolers would have done on this quiz.

    18. And from reading your drivel, it appears that you are a far Leftist pencil neck geek MFer with a very hateful attitude.

  5. What is this independence of which you speak?

    The Rothschilds have us in their greedy little hands since 1913.

  6. The comment moderating on this website is hilarious. Look at the one comment that’s been approved. Though far less obnoxious or divisive, mine have not been. Agenda much Studyfinds.org?

    1. Americans can’t stand the truth.

      It must be censored in every possible way.
      It is the only way they can remain delusional.

    2. “The failed California liberal experiment is proof of where the country is going. What good has come out of California? Yet liberals are enthralled with it. Failure since the late 90’s has caught up with the state. Now a plague that has crept into everything it touches nationwide.

      Bring on the the civil war, I have a bullet for ever liberal media member that pushes communism, death of America, and the “me” agenda.” – American Republican

      Posted above….

  7. 34% of the remaining selected Native Americans. Not 34% over all. 10.7% selected that choice. Still pretty embarrassing, but you should check your math. Happy IndependEnce Day!

  8. One does not end a sentence with a preposition; the question should read : “From whom did America declare her independence?”

    1. Then move and find another country the your richly-endowed leaders will claim 80% of your earnings IF you can find work as a what? A commentator, a public speaker, and chronic complainer? Go for it Daniel!

      1. Every year invariably those high tax countries are found to have superior standards of living than the U.S.

        That makes me laugh at retarded republicans like Shirley.

    2. I’ve been telling Americans that for more than 4 decades, when it became obvious that Republicans were working to destroy their own country.

      They usually respond by calling me a communist and censoring my comments.

      Americans hate freedom of speech.

        1. True. And that is what makes telling Americans the truth so entertaining.

          Their rejection of the truth always makes me laugh.

  9. If you took the blacks and mexicans out of the survey, I’m sure the results would be much more impressive.

    1. If you took the inbred stock of former european criminals that populate large rural portions of US rural areas out, it would be even more impressive.

      1. I’m pretty much convinced at this point that Americans are the dumbest people alive because they are decedents of dreg Europeans who were dumb enough to travel to America to escape reason and enlightenment.

    2. My previous comment gets blocked for speaking ill of democrats and yet you’re allowing full blown Republican hatred and blatant racism. Sounds about right, I guess.

      1. “The failed California liberal experiment is proof of where the country is going. What good has come out of California? Yet liberals are enthralled with it. Failure since the late 90’s has caught up with the state. Now a plague that has crept into everything it touches nationwide.

        Bring on the the civil war, I have a bullet for ever liberal media member that pushes communism, death of America, and the “me” agenda.” – Republican goof posted earlier.

        Low IQ republicans calling for the mass murder of Liberals.

        Civil War is coming to America… Very… Very… Very soon.

  10. It’s shocking how stupid most Americans – especially young people – are these days.

    I think I got one of the last good public educations available back in the 70s. People these days are too interested in being entertained, materialism, and leading an easy life.

    1. There has been a decline in academic performance every decade since the 1950’s.

      The issue is not the education system. It is due to the continual failure of American Culture.

      1. I wonder what else changed since the 1950’s (maybe you should add changes to demographics to your trivia knowledge)

        1. In the 50’s, children had aspirations to be engineers, scientists, etc.

          Today they aspire to be prostitutes, drug dealers, or tic-toc stars who do funny dances or say stupid things. Anything for money is the American Paradigm.

          American adults still read comic books, which is why Comic Book movies are now so popular.

  11. If 30% of americans are Republicans and republicans are overwhelming stupid, yet, 80 % of Americans don’t know the Earth rotates around the sun once a year, then 50 of that 80 at least are not Republicans. Therefore, your argument results in more stupid people who are not republicans. According to your logic.

    1. Mark… I see you failed your grade 7 introduction to statistics.

      You can’t add and subtract averages that way.

      Like most Americans, you are innumerate.

  12. Going to point out here that if you are going to be a super chode and write a snarky article about how dumb people are…. Dont have typos in your articles title…

    retard

    1. What amuses me is that the stats on the chart don’t correspond to the stats stated in the article.

      This is just more evidence of how Stupid Americans are.

  13. If they don’t know these simple basics. 1. Shoot them. 2. Shoot their teachers. 3. shoot their parents.

  14. Why don’t we call it dependence day? Or Depends Day?

    America was once dependent on England but won the revolutionary war. From that point forward the American people became dependent on the American government. Happy Dependence Day.

    1. Well Trump wore depends undergarments for adults because he is incontinent.

      Call it depends day.

      1. I’m nearly as old as dirt so I have some difficulty holding it without pissing my pants but I bet I still could knock you into the dirt before pulling it out & spraying you real good!

  15. “… two in three young adults in Gen Z don’t know who America declared its independence from.”

    The author needs to go back to school to learn not to end a sentence with a preposition.

    “… don’t know from whom America declared its independence.”

  16. Maybe if schools focused more on teaching actual history instead some made up “woke” agenda, more students would actually know the answers.

    1. Andrew doesn’t have a clue.

      Children don’t learn because parents no longer have the time to properly socialize their children.

      Capitalism has destroyed the family, and the parents no longer have the time to raise their children.

      1. Vendicar = Drama Queen

        Bashing people with your prose may give you some egotistical relief but doesn’t reflect a superior intellect.

        You ascribe all the woes of the country to capitalism while failing to cite any of the positive effects while ignoring any sense of proportional responsibility adults have in raising children.

        Slaving for corporations? Sure, there is a conspiracy for corporations to make profits at the expense of paid employees. Do you care to consider those who start their own companies or otherwise pursue financial independence? SMB comprises nearly 50% of the overall economy, and while that may not impress an anti-capitalist, it should.

        Since your tirade seems to be inspired by this particular article, here is another that suggests fathers are engaging more in their family life. What has changed? Did capitalism end, or have more men begun to accept their role and responsibility in raising children?

        Many of the points you’ve raised are valid, but your vitriol is itself endemic among the very people you ridicule. You cite the lack of education as a contributing factor but fail to see that people like you who magnify their self-righteousness are the reason for much of the systemic divisiveness destroying the culture you say is failing.

        People like you don’t really care about what’s going on. People like you get their rocks off talking down to others because you think it makes you look smart.

        Making naive comments about highly complex systems isn’t a sign of intelligence. Spewing vitriol isn’t a sign of patriotism or concern for the well-being of others.

        1. “Sure, there is a conspiracy for corporations to make profits at the expense of paid employees.”

          “conspiracy”. Hahahahahahaah

          That is pretty much the definition of capitalism isn’t it?

          Hahahahahah… Oh my Goodness you Americans are stupid.

  17. This is/was the Dem. plan… keep ’em stupid and keep ’em dependent on the government… that will assure that they will vote for whatever candidate promises the most with the less work and personal responsibility…

    1. From RepublicanWorld…

      China May Be Plotting Moon ‘takeover’ As Part Of Its Military Space Programme, Says NASA

      For the first time, China Chang’e 4 lunar lander also successfully grew plants on moon under its ambitious lunar mission, giving a competitive edge to NASA.

      Hahahahahahahaha……

  18. “As most elementary school students could tell you, July 4th commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776″

    ” However, the poll found two in three young adults in Gen Z don’t know who America declared its independence from.”

    How can these two statements from the article not be conflicting?
    Did Gen Z adults not go to elementary school?
    Is recreational marijuana really that potent and prevalent now?
    Should the author go back to elementary school?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    1. “How can these two statements from the article not be conflicting?”

      Well you see.. The first piece of knowledge is the how.
      The second one – the one that is missing – is the who.

      Hahahahaha….. And you have just publicly professed that you don’t know the difference.

      Well done, American.

  19. “many Americans should go back to school”
    What would be the point of that? It’s obvious that our public education system is fatally flawed.

  20. None of this is surprising. And then the author makes another common error in an article decrying spelling cluelessness, a grammar one

    less than 58 percent

    Methinks the correct usage is “fewer than 58 percent”. Percent means “out of 100”. Thus the 58 out of 100 is a countable thing. When referring to countable things the correct usage is “fewer”. Fewer people, not less people. Less stupidity not fewer stupidity. Only when referring to masses or uncountable things does one use the word “less”

    1. Geno = Full of Guano.

      Children don’t learn because the family unit has been destroyed by Capitalism, and there is no longer a social imperative to learn, particularly when there is money to be made or tweets to post.

      American adults are no so stupid that they can’t distinguish between objective reality and comic book fantasy.

      This is why Hollywood is producing animated comic books for adults. American adults never intellectually advanced past their comic book reading pre-teens.

      American government has grown corrupt and stupid, because the American electorate has grown too stupid to even know what rational, honest leadership looks like.

      It looks like Iron man doesn’t it? Or maybe a terminator, or some Ice queen or Glinda the good witch.

  21. And I think that there is an argument to remove public education right there. The US pays more per child than any other country in the world and that’s the education they get. Time to end the indoctrination camps.

    1. The more Republicans meddled with the school system, the worse it got.

      Now teachers spend their days filling out forms to prove that they complied with the curriculum requirements, and trying to prep their students how to cram for the next standardized test.

      Where are the parents? Working.
      Where is Billy after school? Working.

      Corporations need their slave labor.

      1. Thank you for the first intelligent response in this comments section. As an American History teacher in a rural public school I thank you. I can assure you that your statement is incredibly accurate.

        1. Ya, well…. I just state the truth.

          The ignorant knee jerk responses from RepubliKKKans just illustrate the real issues.

      2. Sadly, the article reveals what an education system operated by Liberal Democrats churns out – it ALSO reveals the fallout from Conservatives with “live and let live” philosophy who stood idly by and LET HAPPEN! We ALL deserve what we’ve GOT!

        1. The world is filled to the brim with Liberal school systems, and all of them perform better than those in America.

          What is it about American Culture that makes it such a spectacular failure at everything?

          Oh yes… Now I remember…. It’s because Americans are Exceptional.

          Hahahahahahahh…….

    2. Defund the schools! Give the funds to the police! It’s too late to try to teach these kids anything; all we can do is protect the rest of society from them.

      1. Well, the problem is… They are your replacements.

        Maybe America needs to start importing more Mexicans.

        They are smarter.

        “I love the poorly educated.” – Donald Trump.

  22. White and “Asian” Americans have intelligence scores on par with the “smartest” European countries… you can guess what the “diversity” test scores reflect
    Hint: not Europe

    1. Asians score higher on IQ tests than white Americans.
      White Americans score lower than Europeans.

      This is probably due to the fact that Americans are genetically inferior due to Americans having originated from the low IQ dregs of Europe.

    1. Meanwhile 1 in 3 Republicans think they have seen a UFO.

      80% of Americans believe in angels.

      Hahahahahahahah

      Advanced technical societies can not be democratically run by such fools.

  23. lawsuit.org studyfinds.org wtf is what would lawsuit.org be doing this for? bunch of click bait bullshit, probably isn’t even a real survey. What a dogsh1T site, how much are you paying Drudge for the links?

    zero comparison between different generations, and we are supposed to come to the conclusion zoomers are not-informed compared to other generations?

  24. Calling BS on this article. Link to the source was not provided, found no mention of independence day on Lawsuit.org. This article is obviously fabricated content.

  25. If you voted for Biden, you deserve the current and future cost of gas, groceries and utilities.

    1. If you are a Capitalist, you deserve the current and future cost of gas, groceries and utilities.

      There, I fixed it for you Ray.

    1. Do they? You know about it because Faux news tells you what to think, and just like a trained dog, you obediently obey.

        1. Uhhhhhhhh, two from what I remember when I was playing doctor and nurse with the neighbor girl. I was only 8 but that is what I remember.

        2. Lets look at the definition of the word “gender” to see.

          either of the two sexes (male and female), especially when considered with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones. The term is also used more broadly to denote a range of identities that do not correspond to established ideas of male and female.

          So by definition there is a spectrum of genders with no discernable boundaries other than at the extremes of male and female.

          See how easy that was when you aren’t being willfully ignorant?

  26. Did anyone notice a link to the actual poll? There isn’t a record of the poll on lawsuit.org. The site in question hasn’t posted to their twitter feed in two years.

  27. Are you sure? My daughter graduated from HS 5 years ago…today out of her 9 best friends, 5 are gay, and 1 thinks she is a boy. My daughter is the only one that is married. (She married a man)

  28. When all those real Catholics coming across the border start voting its going to be interesting to watch the democrats realize they are going to have to dump the woke left to get any of those votes

    1. Given that Republicans are using every trick they can think of to stop free and fair elections in America, I don’t think voting is going to solve America’s Fascist Christian Republican problem.

  29. Survey reveals that 2 in 3 young adults don’t know who American declared its independence from in 1776!

    “American declared?”
    Really?

  30. My 12-year-old grandson was so astounded at the ignorance of college students stumbling over basic geography questions on YouTube that he memorized every country in the world and their capitals. As a reward, he gets to go to Ireland and Spain this Fall.

    1. Very good. Is he going there permanently?

      I ask because America will no longer exist when he is 17.

      Destroyed by 50 years of continuous Republican Treason.

      1. No just a two-week visit. His DNA indicates that he’s 68% Southern European, 18% Syrian, and the rest Indiginous Indian, a beautiful little mutt. He wants to visit Andalusia and see the Straights of Gibraltar.

  31. Most Canadians (and citizens of countries around the world…) believe we are watching the USA in the intermediate stages of self-destruction. For some reason, Americans seem to have more faith in the utterances of various hill-billy militia and the ultra-right, than scientists’. The fact that a politician like Marjorie Taylor Greene was just re-elected and that Trump still has such a strong base, pretty much sounds the country’s death knell.

    1. Steve is absolutely correct, in the way Canadians feel, and in their projections of America’s very near future.

      The rest of the world pretty much thinks the same thing.

      Republican treason has made America the laughing stock of the entire world.

  32. This is a public school problem. If these kids do not know the answer to this question we need to look to the schools not doing their job. Instead of teaching CRT maybe they should teach the real history of the US.

    Theory is just that, A thought or research into a subject. NOT a definitive explanation of the history of, or a doctoral dictation, of the reality of an idea. An idea has a constructed outcome of the hypothesis and as such does not constitute reality.

    1. Texas educator group proposes referring to slavery as “involuntary relocation”
      in second grade curriculum

      A group of republican Texas educators have proposed to the Texas State Board of Education
      that slavery should be taught as “involuntary relocation” during second grade
      social studies instruction.

      Part of the proposed draft standards that were obtained by The Texas Tribune
      say that students should “compare journeys to America, including voluntary
      Irish immigration and involuntary relocation of African people during colonial

      This process comes as the state’s public education system has become heavily
      politicized, from lawmakers passing legislation on how race and slavery should
      be taught in schools to conservative political action committees pouring huge
      amounts of money to put more conservatives on school boards that promise to get
      rid of curriculum and programs they deem are divisive and make white children

  33. I thought we gained our independence from England and not Great Britain??? Wasn’t Great Britain (UK) formed in 1922? What am I missing here?

    And doesn’t that graph show that 2 out of 3 (not 1 out of 3) got the answer sort of correct?

  34. So pubic schools suck at teaching? No surprise. All they “teach” kids anymore is how to pass mandated tests. No learning happens. Get the government out of education. If the schools are now able to actually teach, the best schools will stand out during testing for college acceptance.

    1. Republicans put government into education so they could destroy education.

      But education isn’t really the problem in America.
      The problem is the failure of American Culture.

      No time to learn when you are grubbing for dimes.
      No point in learning when you have a few dimes.

  35. I bet if you polled the about the use of pronouns, intersectionality, critical race theory, how horrible capitalism is, how wonderful socialism is, how Trump incited an insurrection, they would have no problem spouting the indoctrination of the education system, the lamestream media and the DNC.

  36. This is what happens when you have too many immigrants. You get a country of retards who dont know anything about America and the Gen Z lost 2 years of school because of covid so they will be retards as well. America is doomed in roughly 20 years. Its over, start preparing now. The democrats f**ked us for votes

    1. Doomed for 20 years?

      LOL.. You have been doomed for the last 40 years.

      And while you were jabbering nonsense about “American exceptionalism”, the world was laughing at you, and your obvious path to oblivion.

      Americans can now smell the rotting flesh of their country, but can’t believe that they have been an ignorant and willing participant in their own nation’s death.

      Civil War is upon you.

  37. Reporters claims do not align with his chart. As a former mathematics teacher, I find this poorly written inaccurate story to be very sad.

  38. Not shocked they are taught now if they are a boy they should be a girl and vice versa and they owe blacks a living and to trust a lying corrupt government to get the vaccines and it is normal to have two daddys and two mommies and it is OK to kill a unborn miracle from God and that God does not exist and we wonder why things are like they are now fighting to stop oppression is not important anymore If they read history they would see every race and nationality was slaves in the USA I think the Indians got it the worse I have heard whites called ho’s crackers racist and honkies but I have not heard what they call another black like those in Chicago and other places who kill blacks I guess because it is OK because it is a black killing a black. How come the news doesn’t report the black cops who kill blacks and whites

    1. David Allan Smith, is a trained barking dog, and is upset that the world is leaving him behind.

      Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww… Poor Baby…

      We will rattle a rattle in honor of you when you come to your end.

      Then we will laugh.

  39. Vendicar you mock Trump and loathe Republicans so tell me you wisdom on Joe Biden Hunter Biden The Clinton’s Aoc Pelosi you must love those people would you like me to go down the list??

    1. Hunter Biden like his Sister are drug abusers who are self destructive.

      Biden sees the world correctly, but like most of the old geezers in the Democratic party, they lack the guts to take on and wipe out the Republicans.

      So in the coming American Civil war, bullets will be used to do that.

  40. My last comment was not allowed so much for free speech Maybe thought I would hyrt someones feelings get over it

    1. That is odd because above, one Republican writes…

      “The failed California liberal experiment is proof of where the country is going. What good has come out of California? Yet liberals are enthralled with it. Failure since the late 90’s has caught up with the state. Now a plague that has crept into everything it touches nationwide.

      Bring on the the civil war, I have a bullet for ever liberal media member that pushes communism, death of America, and the “me” agenda.”

  41. my comments all not allowed I will just get off this site when you can’t voice your opinion then you become a slave

    1. America is rife with censorship.

      Typically in America, censorship allows Republicans to spread lies, while the truth is censored.

      Americans hate free speech.
