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.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”

Tanden is a controversial Democrat.

Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.

Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,

Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.

However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
