A new study by the Victims of Communism project reveals some alarming US attitudes among the youth on Socialism and Communism on the eve of the 2016 election.
Millennials and older Americans have ver different attitudes which isn’t surprising given the leftist bent in many our college and K-12 campuses.
While 80% of baby boomers and 91% of elderly Americans see Communism as a serious problem in years past, only 55% have any problem with it, while 45% said said they would vote for a Socialist, 21% said they would vote for a Communist, and only 42% have a favorable view of Capitalism.
Older Americans – 64% – have a positive view of Capitalism.
The study also found millennials have an alarming lack of historical knowledge. Nearly one-third of those queried though George W. Bush killed more people than Soviet dictator and mass murderer Joseph Stalin. They also couldn’t come close to estimating the number of deaths Stalin was responsible for.
Only 25% knew Communism led to the deaths of 100 million people.
This is how Communism takes root and we must start teaching the young what it means or we will face it again and we will face it very soon without an America to serve as a beacon of light as it has in the past. We are hearing the same distorted intellectual pratter that was spewed before the onslaught of Communism. We are seeing the same frightening attitude that we must be “nonjudgemental” about Communism and Socialism. Read more on this link.
