Millennials know a lot of stuff,
just not history

Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm

Posted By:SurferLad, 4/16/2018 3:07:12 PM

Millennials have an enduring reputation for being dumb about many things. Clearly, that’s a bum rap. They’re just ignorant about some stuff. They know a lot about “The Bachelor” and “Star Wars.” They can text more than 60 words per minute. They know that George W. Bush was responsible for more deaths than Joseph Stalin. They know that capitalism is a dangerous concept and communism isn’t really a problem. They are unfamiliar with that Lenin fellow and Mao Tse-tung, who are dead, by the way. So, why bother knowing or caring? [Snip] So, it was quite encouraging to learn the other

And at the rate they are being (un-) taught history and the current trend in taking out the statues of historical figures, this generation will be a stupid generation.

Of course their biggest problem is what they know as fact that isn´t true.

FTA:

"And 58 percent of Americans said they believe that something like the Holocaust could happen again,which is silly. Just ask a millennial living in the basement next door."

A wise friend of mine once said life is too short to have pet peeves but I´m not so wise.

I have a problem every time I see a reference to the Holocaust possibly happening again when it has happened again and again and again. Two of those "agains" on far larger scales.

Oh and throw in our plans to accomplish much the same by just letting Germany starve under the Morgenthau plan, which by the way had its roots in the communist element in the US at the time.

Millennials don´t know a lot of stuff. They know one thing and that is "social justice" propaganda as taught to them by the leftist professors in our liberal propaganda institutions known as schools, universities and colleges.

Andrew Wilkow is often using the phrase "The History of NOW" to describe this situation.

When you have no guiding principles, no foundation in the TRUTH and are stupidly gullible to whatever is pronounced by pop culture as "hip" there is no way these people can make a reasoned principled decision.

The only way to understand contemporary events is to know the history of the times some of this stuff has been tried and FAILED.

The "history of NOW" is nothing more than the same old socialism where only a very FEW of the ´brightest´ rule over everyone else because they didn´t know what rights they had that the just willingly GAVE AWAY.

The pampered ones are by far the dumbest. Any kid who actually had to work a job learns a lot by the second day of the job. The biggest morons are the ones brought up on ´everyone gets a trophy´ brainwashing. Life is survival and it will test you sooner or later. Snowflakes are worthless posers who will be swept away when they are finally on their own.

The problem is they know "stuff" and nothing of substance. Their parents didn´t help matters much.

A country is only as rich as their education system. No Child Left Behind has left many in the dust. When Boomers die off, so will the country.

This seems a little weird, but then I’m not a smoker. State police and public safety officials in Massachusetts — and automobile insurance representatives nationally — are urging drivers to remain alert and extra careful today, April 20, especially in the late afternoon. It sounds like an urban myth. But a recent study by the American Medical Association on driving and the growing use of marijuana found a 12 percent increase in automobile accidents on April 20 (4/20), sometimes known as National Weed Day, and especially after 4:20 in the afternoon. In Boston Thursday, State Police Col.

But no. We’re not, according to some more social studies people. According to researchers at San Francisco State University, cellphone addiction is pretty much like opioid addiction.

In a speech one day during his long presidency, Barack Obama reminisced about his childhood, hearing the neighborhood call to prayer several times a day and eating food his mother prepared including dog. That was in Indonesia. Such a diet is culturally repulsive in a country whose citizens share their home, own foods and even beds with some 90 million dogs as pets and companions. Soon, eating them may also become illegal. An estimated 86 million pet cats also reside with Americans.An amendment was slipped into a bill approved by the House Agriculture Committee Wednesday to bar “knowingly slaughtering a

Job approvals for all 50 governors,

Americans like Republicans running their states. A new tabulation of state-by-state job approval ratings for all 50 of the nation’s governors finds that the top 15 with the highest approvals are all GOP. During the White House reign of Barack Obama, American voters made a distinct turn to the GOP at both the federal and state levels. They took over not just both houses of Congress, but also nearly 1,000 seats in state legislatures and dozens of governors’ offices. The GOP now controls 33 of them and both legislative chambers in 26 of those states. Democrats now hold only 16

Good news for those of us who think the nation’s most populous state should be a little less populous. Or a lot less. The American Lung Association has released its annual report on ozone pollution. And would you believe, eight of the worst places in the country for ozone pollution are in California? So, you definitely wouldn’t want to move here from outside the state. No, sir. In fact, if you’re already among the 39.5 million folks who try to exist here, you probably want to load up both cars, get on I-15 or I-10 and head out for cleaner

Amazing what some major tax reforms and tax cuts in paychecks will do to public opinion. A majority of Americans — a slim one, to be sure, but a majority nonetheless — believes members of the middle class now pay “their fair share” of federal taxes. That’s way up from last year’s poll before Congress passed and President Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act in December. Under the ongoing tutelage of Democrats and media, a large majority of Americans knows that large corporations pay way too little in taxes, although — wait for it — the proportion that

Paul Ryan essentially entered the nation’s life on a humid Virginia Saturday in 2012, walking down the gangway of the old battleship Wisconsin as Republican candidate Mitt Romney announced his surprise selection as the vice presidential running mate. The choice of the young, wonky Wisconsin representative was an uncharacteristically bold move by Romney.

The bond between pets and their human is amazing, powerful, touching, inspiring and really, really annoying if you’re seated next to them on a packed airplane. That’s happening more and more these days as thousands of Americans catch on to this generous scam of airlines. The con is that passengers can claim they need the dog or cat’s company for “emotional support.” [Snip] The result is a rapidly-growing number of jammed airliners taking off like flying kennels. Last year U.S. airlines flew more than 750,000 emotional support animals — for free. As in, so very much cheaper than boarding the

Anchorage voters (Pop: 300,000) have just defeated a measure to require people to use the restroom according to their biological birth gender. According to the Associated Press, this is the first American city to settle the issue this way.

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump. The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there. “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found

First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

A California school district says that parents can’t opt out of a new sex education course that will deal with abortion, homosexuality and transgender issues. California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.” The law also gives parents the ability to opt-out of this education and said that the “pupil” shall not be punished academically in any way if they don’t

But I think it is important that we understand the degree of oppression we are up against. I regret to say: I have been silenced. I expressed an opinion, and people criticized that opinion. And since that day, my voice has never been heard again.
