Millennials: Communism sounds pretty chill

According to the latest survey from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, a D.C.-based nonprofit, one in two U.S. millennials say they would rather live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalist democracy.

What’s more, 22% of them have a favorable view of Karl Marx and a surprising number see Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong Un as “heroes.”

    Nobody is stopping them from departing for their utopia..

      Exactly. Yet they refuse to move and insist on transforming free countries into another communist hell. I attribute this to a couple of main things: one is that this is the fruit of allowing communist/leftist infiltration of the education system, and the second is ignorance caused by being too lazy to verify what they hear or read. Anyone who especaped from such a hellhole will set them straight.

      Tell them that communist countries have compulsory military service and they’ll soon change their tune.

    I like to tell people I’m a fascist, and that what happened under Hitler and Mussolini wasn’t ‘real fascism’.

      Good one!

    they are the result of the “education” system – can’t think independently, no nothing about the real world and history, but they have FEELINGS

  • Blacksmith

    Your parents tried that crap in the 60’s, didnt work then either.

    Many of these morons were essentially the first generation raised from kindergarten on up by teachers filling in as substitute parents along with their fellow child inmates filling roles as ersatz brothers, sisters, etc.

  • From the article:

    “Smith explained that this “troubling turn” highlights pervasive
    historical illiteracy across the country and “the systemic failure of
    our education system to teach students about the genocide, destruction,
    and misery caused by communism since the Bolshevik Revolution one
    hundred years ago.”

    Question: why can’t the parents do this?

    Parents have neglected their duties as primary care-givers and educators to their kids. This slack was picked up by the incompetent and the morally bankrupt.

    There is a lot of blame to go around, is my point.

    Also, air-lift these @$$holes to North Korea and leave them there.

      It isn’t always the fault of the parents I can assure you. I well remember when during my kids school years how they often thought I was full of it when I told them what they were being taught was incorrect. Fortunately, little by little they have discovered that I really wasn’t full of it but was correct. Going against the whole school system and all their peers does not always turn out that way for all parents. I do agree that there is no shortage of lazy parents or indifferent parents, who are usually the first ones to make a huge stink if Johnny or Susie gets a bad mark from a teacher, or heaven forbid gets disciplined for bad behaviour.

      • But you were there to stop the potential ruin. How many parents just don’t care?

        IF there are hawk-like parents, it is not because they truly care about academic standards but because they don’t want their snowflakes – whom they see as an extension of themselves – to be distressed.

    • canminuteman

      Because it’s now been going on for generations, so the parents were taught the same things and don’t realize it’s all lies.

      • I’m sure there is room for them on the plane to North Korea.

        • canminuteman

          I think Nork is a perfect example of how bad brainwashing people can get. The average Nork peasant likely really believes Kim’s BS and believes it to be true. It’s a perfect example of multigenerational brainwashing. They are so far gone they are beyond repair.

          • North Koreans are not beyond repair. There are many defectors and signs that the hermit kingdom will collapse. Consider that Kim Jong-Un arrested and killed many defectors shortly after his father’s death. Also consider that he gave his sister a powerful position. He can no longer trust his generals or other advisors.

    As an American, might I suggest…Canada?

      We are not yet there, which is why we really do not need anymore communist useful idiots.

  • Thomas Henderson

    Critical theory is Marxism merely under a different guise and Millennials have been fed this diet since birth. Wish more of them were endowed with critical thinking, but such thinking is hardly likely to spring up in a vacuum.

    It’s one small step from the idolatry of the self to idolatry of the state, from hovering helicopter moms to the big momma teat of government, where one does not have to mature much beyond adolescent whims and appetites to ever grow up.

    It’s high school forever with all the personal petty politics of girl power and brow beaten caitiffs endlessly profiled and paraded on social media.

    Bernie Sanders is only a foretaste of what’s to come. We may not need the horror of a great war to give us the next Lenin. Alas, the lessons that are never learned.

    • Alain

      Excellent take on the situation.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Time for them to head to North Korea. I read somewhere that there’s over 200 good mining and quarrying jobs that just opened up there…

  • patriot6

    Good. Send ’em over to live in NoKo. And when reality hits ’em in the face and they start crying to come home don’t let ’em back in. They won’t be missed.

    How about field trip to Venezuela?
