Comedian and “man on the street” interviewer extraordinaire Steven Crowder asked a cross section of Americans in Texas what they thought about the U.S.A. The responses in the unplanned and unscripted interviews stand in stark contrast to the anti-American “F—the fourth” Democratic-pushed narrative of late.
Crowder conducted the interviews on the streets of Dallas and incorporated the discussions in the latest episode of his show “Talking With People.”
The Daily Wire profiled the interview, noting that Crowder promoted his show by saying, “I spoke to an eclectic mix of people coming from very different walks in life, but all of them seemed to share one thing in common, so let’s see if you can pick it out. It won’t be too hard to find it.”
Crowder interviewed several people of color — a strong majority proud to be Americans — and those who had spent time abroad reported those countries have higher instances of racism and that America has more freedom.
Fate and Laura of Iowa told Crowder, for example, they are “absolutely” proud to be Americas. The biracial couple noted they had experienced hard times but that opportunities in America and the kindness of others — including strangers — helped them overcome. They shared they are now doing well.
“We were homeless for a long time,” Fate said. “If it wasn’t for the … determination and some of the people out here helping us and giving us this, that, and the other every now and then, man, we would’ve drowned.”
Fate shared that when they were out of work — their business closed due to COVID — someone “blessed them” with an opportunity to move to Waterloo, Iowa, where a new job and a fresh start awaited them.
When asked if there was kindness in Iowa and if there was racism in Iowa, which has a predominately white population, the couple answered “Yes and no.” Yes was to kindness and no to racism, emphasizing that the community just wants you to be a good person and work hard.
“Waterloo is a blue-collar city,” Fate told Crowder. “When it comes to blue-collar, man, sometimes people – they don’t think about anything else [such as the color of your skin], you know what I’m saying, and that’s the way the world should be.”
Another woman on the broadcast also noted she was “absolutely” proud to be an American because “You can walk around, you can do things like this on a Saturday without any worries or any people telling you what to do or where you’re supposed to be. You can live and make money how you want.”
The woman described freedom — the freedoms we enjoy and must fight to maintain. “That’s a pretty good answer,” Crowder replied.
Perhaps the most enlightening responses came from a man who migrated to the U.S. from South Korea. When Crowder asked the man in his twenties if he had any 4th of July plans, he replied “no,” explaining that his family is Asian and are not really “in the American spirit.”
But when gently pressed by Crowder, the man said he was proud to be an American and that “America is 100% a great country.”
He slightly qualified his response by saying, “But then again, of course, everyone knows, there’s the highs and the lows.”
As the first-generation Korean-American reflected on life in South Korea and life in America, he told Crowder that he “100%” prefers America.
Crowder ended his show by saying, “There you go. Just more proof that…those in power and the media want us divided. If they just leave us alone, we’ll get along and realize America is a pretty good place.”
“America is the greatest country in the world, and Americans know it, even if half of their elected representatives in the government are busy trying to tell them to feel otherwise. Happy Independence Day! And God Bless America!”
