In a video that was uploaded to Youtube last year, but is just now gaining some traction on social media, we get to see what Hollywood elites thought about America.
The video is from a patriotic television special entitled “Swing Out, Sweet Land” and was aired more than 40 years ago.
John Wayne opens the video with a short speech about his love for the country and ends it with “God Bless America”.
The rest of the cast, dressed as important figures in American history, then sang “God Bless America”.
Johnny Cash, Lorne Greene, Jack Benny, Lucille Ball, Bing Crosby, and many more Hollywood stars of the time join in with Wayne in expressing their love for country.
This video is a stark contrast to modern Hollywood where it seems to be en vogue to speak out against traditional American values and patriotism.
