Tucker Carlson Believes Socialism’s Rising Popularity is Because of How Corrupt the Current System Is

Published

Last week, Fox News host Tucker Carlson said that American millenials and their Generation Z cohorts are gradually becoming attracted to socialism because “our current system isn’t working” for them on certain issues such as rising student debt.

Carlson penned an op-ed last Thursday on the Daily Caller along with co-founder Neil Patel explaining how student debt is keeping millenials and other young adults from buying homes or starting families.

“You may be happy with the state of the U.S. economy, but many young people aren’t,” Carlson and Patel argued. “The main problem — the reason capitalism is increasingly discredited and socialism increasingly popular — is that for too many young people, our current system isn’t working.”

The two conservative commentators’ takeaway came after a new poll revealed that 70 percent of millennials expressed that they are “somewhat or extremely like to vote for a socialist candidate.”

Additionally, the survey found that half of millennials — in the age range of 22 to 38 — and 51 percent of Generation Z —those of the age 16 and 22 range, held somewhat or very unfavorable views of capitalism.

According to the Institute for College Access and Success, 44 million Americans are on the hook for $1.5 trillion in student loans.

“Many of today’s college freshmen can expect to spend their working lives paying interest on loans that, in the end, didn’t help them at all,” Carlson and Patel wrote. “No wonder so many support Bernie Sanders. If this is capitalism, they don’t want any part of it.”

Senator Bernie Sanders and Senator Elizabeth Warren have both put student loan forgiveness at the center of their  presidential campaigns.

“We need to move the crushing financial burden of student debt off the shoulders of middle-class families and 22-year-olds and back onto the people who’ve gotten rich from it,” Carlson and Patel finished off their piece. “That’s an idea every sensible person can support. And there’s a political payoff for any politician wise enough to adopt it.”

Indeed, Sanders and Warren’s proposal to treat higher education like a positive right that must be granted by the government is both immoral and economically detrimental.

Nevertheless, conservatives will have to make the case for getting the state out of the higher education sector and let it any function like any good or service in the free market.  Universities and banks should also be held accountable for any foul play in this process.

As the 2020 elections heat up, higher education will continue to be one of the biggest issues given the financial implications it has for future generations.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
