A new poll puts a dark shadow across the faces of Millennials, because it shows those of this generation are more apt than most to give away the freedoms others of yesteryear fought so hard to win and save. Why?
Of 2,300 Americans polled by YouGov, fully 80 percent of baby boomers and 91 percent of elderly agree that “communism was and still is a problem.” But the Millennial year individuals?
Only 55 percent answered that “communism was and still is a problem,” Market Watch reported.
And that bodes darkly for America.
“An emerging generation of Americans has little understanding of the collectivist system and its dark history,” said Marion Smith, with the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, Market Watch reported.
And as everybody’s heard: Those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it.
But the poll findings get even worse.
“Furthermore,” Market Watch reported, “almost half of Americans between the ages of 16 and 20 said they would vote for a socialist, while 21 percent would go so far as to back a communist.”
Unbelievable: Communists in the coming years won’t have to worry about stealth operations to take down the United States. They can just run for political office – openly – and change the country from the inside.
“Capitalism, on the other hand, is viewed favorably by 64 percent of those over the age of 65, compared with only 42 percent of Millennials,” the poll found, Market Watch reported.
Here’s one more finding from the poll, shocking as it might seem to those with proper history lessons: When it comes to killing, more look with angry eyes at one of America’s own presidents, than against one of history’s most murderous figures. Which president? Which figure?
“[A] third of Millennials say they believe more people were killed under George W. Bush than Joseph Stalin,” the poll showed, Market Watch reported.
