Will Witt of PragerU recently ventured to Echo Park — an iconic hipster neighborhood of Los Angeles filled with artists, musicians, indie rock clubs, trendy bars, and graffiti-covered murals — to ask folks if they're proud to be Americans, among other queries.

As you might expect, the Echo Park faithful pretty much responded as hipsters do these days.

When pushed further for a reason, he offered two words: "Donald Trump." He added that "the sooner they can get rid of Donald Trump, the better the future is gonna be."

Said diner also was asked if patriotism is a good thing. As before he answered "no." And his reason? "It creates division," he said. "It's like religion."

Another guy was asked "what's caused the downfall in America?" His reply was "capitalism ... puttin' the buck before the person."

A woman noted she hoped "a glaze of liberalism" and more diverse points of view would inform every White House decision. Witt then offered that there should be a "black lesbian" president, and the woman replied, "Yeah, I would totally agree."

One pedestrian predicted the United States will soon resemble a "third-world country," become "more violent," and suffer the impact of "economic disparity and climate change."

Not every individual had bad things to say about the U.S., however.

One man was asked if he was proud to be an American, and he replied, "Yes, definitely. I was the first person in my family to be born in the United States."
