Americans just celebrated the 4th of July, a holiday which some people seemingly celebrate without knowing what they are celebrating.
In the past, we wrote an article about Mark Dice’s interviews with people on the 4th of July. In one particular video he wanted to know things like what country we declared independence from, but most people he interviewed couldn’t even answer that.
As has become somewhat of a tradition, he has again asked random people questions on the holiday. This time, he wanted to know how many stars are on the American flag. Perhaps you should simply observe:
For a while, these videos were rather funny in a sickening sort of way, but this is such basic knowledge for an American that it’s just pathetic and disgusting that some people could not answer the question correctly. As usual, there was a foreigner who knew the answer while most of the Americans who were questioned had no idea.
So remember, if you ever get asked, there are 52 stars on the American flag 🙂
