Survey of 50% of Millennials Don't Realize How Blessed They Are to Live in America 11/6/17 - A Whittle Bit of Commentary

A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle

Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):

A survey from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation in D.C. reports that one in two, 50%, of millennials don’t realize how good they have it because half of the sample said they would rather live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalistic nation like the America.

22% of them have a favorable view of Karl Marx and see Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong Un, Rocket man, as “heroes.”

The survey also showed that millennials are the least knowledgable generation on the subject, with 71% failing to identify the proper definition of communism.

Now anyone with a knowledge of history and basic common sense knows that America beats the Soviet Union and its long bread lines and empty fields of dying crops that led to starvation.

Millennials are ill-informed on communism and that there’s many reasons for this. One is the pop culture and media. Look at how many celebrities you have complaining about the unfairness of America, while they’re all multimillionaires, and how rotten capitalism is. Over in Cuba they’ve got that great third world socialize medicine. Notice though none of these celebrities fly to Cuba for medical treatment.

Millennials do not realize how blessed they are to live in America and to have the opportunities that are here. If we ever lost our freedom, millennials would be the first ones to complain about it. Sometimes you don’t realize what you have until you lose it, but hopefully, millennials won’t have to find out how losing freedom feels, as America continues to be free.
