Karol Markowicz joined Ben Domenech to discuss her view of America, including her thoughts on patriotism and her experience as a New Yorker, after having immigrated to the US from the USSR. Markowicz is a columnist at the New York Post and a contributer at The Spectator and the Washington Examiner. 

Markowicz argued Americans should prioritize their country and its needs above political victories. True patriots will want the best outcome for the whole of the nation despite any favor it may bring to their opposing political party. In many countries, she said, leaders have ultimate authority. In the United States, however, the president only has so much power and the power of individuals shouldn’t be underestimated.

    Note that there are two ways a polled person can respond to the question: “Is America today a racist country?”

    The first and more common way is to assume the pollster is implying racism of whites against minorities. The second way is to consider Affirmative Action policies and corporate practices which prefer racial minorities to whites.

    According to the poll, the two are in agreement. Logically, they are not.
