College students love themselves some socialism (see LOL: Wimpy College Socialists Have Started a ‘Fight Club’ to Battle ‘Fascists’). Almost as much as they love ramen and raves. But do they actually know anything about it? Good question. This may surprise you, but no.
Kudos to those meddling kids at Campus Reform for this gem.
“I think people throw that word around to try and scare you, but if helping people is socialism, then I’m for it.”
“I guess just, you know, getting rid of that wealth gap in the United States?”
“It’s more of an open form of government and it feels a lot more accessible to a lot more people.”
But when asked to explain further?
“To be quite honest I don’t know.”
Surprise! Looks like these socialist crapbags known very little of what they preach. Yet they go on polluting the air with their rancid thought bubbles nonetheless. Woe is us.
This is the cunning all-knowingness of college students in action. Courtesy of the land of “higher education,” mind you. Mayhaps these chitlins should frequent the library more.
This separation from reality is what makes leftism so dangerous. While these kids reap the benefits of capitalism and free markets – usually in the form of dad’s credit card – they simultaneously seek to destroy those very same things. Why? Because they’ve been encouraged to do so by an old balding crone who likes to yell about fairness.
So these are the fair ladies and gents who line the streets in protest of capitalism. All the while never truly knowing what the actual consequences of socialism look like. You know, because they couldn’t identify socialism in a lineup of one.
These kids want a socialist utopia? Might I suggest a summer vacation to Venezuela (see Venezuela Fights Food Shortage. By Robbing Bakeries and Venezuelan Grocery Costs to Rise OVER 2000%). I hear the breadlines are lovely this time of year.
