Fox's Greg Gutfeld sneered about the recent findings of a Pew poll which, he said, revealed that 43 percent of Millennials feel that “socialism is OK” while 86 percent of the older folks do not. To Gutfeld, that was proof that our young people are clueless and/or brainwashed. "Like Obama."
In his pre-scripted introduction to a discussion on The Five last week, Gutfeld said:
As long as you don’t know what socialism is, you are fine with it. In a way, it’s like President Obama. Once you explain it, however, people run. Again, like President Obama.
Which explains why older folks detest this crud. They remember history and its bad guys all too well.
…No surprise, this silliness peaks in college, that incubator filled with academics who disguise coercion as compassion. They probably celebrated July 4th because it’s Tokyo Rose’s birthday.
…On campus, it’s the leftists’ job to keep kids in the dark because when they’re in the real world, the drugs wear off - except in the media where bad ideas are kept alive by the incubator star pupils. Which leaves the real work up to you and me, all of us here. To deprogram the brainwash, you must persuasively show them why capitalism means freedom, how a paycheck is yours and not Obama’s, and that real compassion is defined by opportunity and not entitlement.
Apparently, its beyond the realm of possiility to Gutfeld that Millennials might be right or even have views worth considering. He’ll undoubtedly be yelling at them to get off his lawn this weekend.
