A ruined generation (or two)

Neil Cavuto interviewed Keely Mullen this week (video below).  Mullen is the organizer of the Million Student March, which she described as “a movement for a more equitable and fair system of education as opposed to the really corporate model that we have right now.”


They have three core demands: (1) free public college, (2) cancelation of student debt, and (3) a $15/hr minimum wage for students who work on campus.


Cavuto asked her how all of that would be paid for.  Her answer (wait for it): the top 1% of people who are hording all the wealth!  She had her talking points down about the evil 1%, who should pay enough until everything is fixed just right.  (Get in line for handouts, Keely, because as far as I can tell, there are a lot of folks already waiting to tap into that panacea.)


Despite Cavuto’s attempts to inject some actual facts into her brain, she prattled on in her Valley girl voice, oblivious to reality.  Her ultimate weapon when faced with facts was to deny them, as when Cavuto told her that even if we took 100% of the money from the top 1%, it wouldn’t pay for one entitlement (Medicare) for three years.  Her response: “I don’t believe that!”

Here is the video:

This is precisely what Yuri Besmenov spoke about many years ago when he said that once you brainwash at least one generation, it won’t matter what facts or evidence you place before them.  They will have been wired to have a knee-jerk reaction to things, and such reactions cannot be changed.  The only way to change it is to educate a new generation and to steep them in American values.

Please, God, let’s find a way to do it.
