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.”
“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.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
