No Filter: Uncle Sam wants Southern Utahns to prove they have what it takes to be Americans

FEATURE — How good of a U.S. citizen are you? Do you think you could pass a citizenship test and prove you are eligible for citizenship? Or is it just about high time to start packing your bags and heading for the border?

On this special episode of “No Filter,” Grady Sinclair and Uncle Sam take over Dixie State University’s Trailblazer Stadium armed with squirt guns and gifts and put the fine citizens of Southern Utah to the test with the ultimate patriotic quiz – the U.S. naturalization test.

Watch the boys of “No Filter” and Uncle Sam test the patriotism of Southern Utah’s citizens on July 4th in the media player above.

In days surrounding the 4th of July, thousands of people line up with right hands raised to become American citizens in ceremonies across the nation. However, before they take the Oath of Allegiance to their new country, applicants must first pass a civics exam with questions from America’s history, principles and systems of government.

“Who is in charge of the executive branch,” “how many US Senators are there” and “what are two rights in the Declaration of Independence” are among the questions asked – some challenging and some, well, not so much.

Would-be citizens must pass 6 out of 10 randomly asked questions from the list. If your citizenship was on the line, would you have what it takes to pass?

Not even Planet 105.1‘s own Colleen Rue could escape the wrath of Uncle Sam on America’s big day.

“Can you name the vice-president of the United States,” Uncle Sam asked.

“I can see him. He’s the tall Air Force guy,” Rue said. “Did he go in the Air Force?”

Could you answer how many stars were on the first American flag? And how do you think the rest of your fellow citizens would fair?

Find out with the boys decked out in red, white and blue on this week’s patriotic episode of “No Filter.”
