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.

President Trump’s raucous rally in Montana last week drew a big crowd and national media coverage. Additionally, as we wrote here, it provided insights into the president’s campaign strategy for the next 17 weeks leading up to the midterm elections. Now, it turns out, the rally in Great Falls also created what one Montana newspaper is calling “a firestorm” of controversy on social media over four specific members of the audience. They were priests, wearing clerical dress, carrying Trump signs and seated near the front. The men were also wearing VIP badges. Such things at presidential events overseen by the

Every U.S. president for the past quarter-century has thought he could improve relations with Russia.

This could prove to be a bigger deal than anyone realized over this past summer weekend. Much bigger. On Saturday in the city of light, scientists announced that their trial AIDS vaccine actually triggered an immune response in humans and also prevented infection in monkeys. The test results so far are encouraging and perhaps even exciting. But the team warned there are no guarantees it will work during the next experimental phase, testing it on 2,600 women in southern Africa to see if it prevents HIV infection. “This,” said study leader Dan Barouch of Harvard Medical School, “is only the fifth

Let’s start from the premise that California has way too many people anyway — 39.8 million at last count. [Snip] But government and taxes are not among California’s attributes. So back in 2012 at the urgent suggestion of Gov. Jerry Brown, who painted all kinds of dire consequences if his favorite measure failed, California’s rote voters approved Proposition 30. It was the best kind of huge tax increase because it was on somebody else, those somebody else´s who make a lot of money.

According to ads for airline travel, there’s a lot of smiling, dancing and conviviality these days aboard commercial flights over the United States. Anyone who’s flown in recent years knows how true that is. A main issue for air travel discomfort is the seats, which are crammed in closer and closer together to maximize revenue. One theory is this strategy is designed to encourage people to pay more for the seat rows with room to move a leg and breathe. There’s been so much concern over the shrinking seats and expanding bodies that a group called Flyers Rights sued the

This is actually a good news story, but only if you’re a law-abiding, taxpaying American citizen. If, however, you’re among more than a third of a million Americans in a tax delinquent category, well, then this is not a good news story. It seems Congress passed a law three years ago requiring the Internal Revenue Service to cull out Americans who have more than $51,000 in overdue back-tax debts. Then, the IRS sends those names in batches over to the State Department where they file the names to deny those folks new passports or passport renewals. Eventually, they may be

Americans, it seems, are growing increasingly dubious, skeptical, even cynical about many of their once-hallowed institutions. These include especially Congress. But any such disapproval list also contains TV news, newspapers, unions, public schools and even the criminal justice system. Only two institutions — the military and small business — hold an overwhelming net positive opinion in the minds of Americans. The volunteer military has by far the most public confidence — 94 percent with a great deal or some confidence in it. Only five percent have none, according to a new Gallup phone survey of 1,520 adult Americans..

About that June jobs report:
A surprising record in there

A couple of additions to the predictably comprehensive monthly jobs report by our colleague Ed Morrissey. As he reported here, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said June jobs grew by an unexpectedly large 213,000. Market and workforce experts had been predicting just under 200,000. That’s all good. That put the number of employed Americans at 155,576,000, the tenth record month in the 17-month-old Trump presidency. [Snip] But wait! There’s more. Remember candidate Trump suggesting Hispanics and blacks vote for him because Democrats had never delivered and they had nothing to lose? During the month of June, a record

While Moms cleared the lunch dishes, the little girls in their party dresses and Mary Janes arranged the gifts for formal presentation to the day’s birthday girl. “Where did the boys go?” asked the Moms. “They went outside.” The Moms looked through the window. Sure enough, the carefully-dressed little boys were outside all right — having hose fights in the mud. True, there are such special messy moments in the lives of raising boys. But according to a new Gallup Poll, most parents wouldn’t have it any other way. By a two-to-one margin, Americans now say raising little boys into

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen. When deciding which royals to include in the meeting, senior courtiers shared concerns about

Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going into the Supreme Court confirmation process with a hail of rhetorical arrows zinging by him, including a phony letter-writing campaign aimed at unsuspecting American newspaper editors. At least 21 papers were duped last week, including big-market brands like the Dallas Morning News and The Washington Times. They ran identical letters over a four-day period, each signed by a different person.

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad. Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted. Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of

A 13-year-old girl in Alabama was beheaded because she saw her Sinaloa Cartel-associated granny stabbed to death by drug traffickers, authorities have said. Mariah Lopez, 13, and her grandmother Oralia Mendoza, 49, were killed on June 4 in Moon Cemetery outside of Huntsville, Alabama, prosecutors revealed in court on Thursday. The new details in the case came in a hearing for 26-year-old Yoni Aguilar, who along with 34-year-old Israel Palomino is charged with two counts each of capital murder in the slayings. At the hearing, investigators testified that the grandmother Mendoza had ties to the Sinaloa Cartel,

Moscow - When President Vladimir V.

All he really needs to make his meeting with Mr. Trump a success is for it to take place without any major friction — providing a symbolic end to Western efforts to isolate Russia over its actions against Ukraine in 2014, its meddling in the United States election in 2016 and other examples of what the United States Treasury Department has described as Russia’s “malign activity” around the

Speaking to thousands at the American Federation of Teachers Convention, Clinton expressed her disdain over multiple Trump policies. The ongoing issue of migrant family separations at the border goes beyond politics, she said, adding that it was disgraceful, inhumane and indecent. President Trump signed an executive order in June to allow migrant children to stay with parents who were caught crossing the border illegally.

Long-simmering ethnic tensions in a party increasingly defined by identity politics could erupt if Nancy Pelosi’s mental decline forces her to bow out of her leadership of the Democrats’ House Caucus. With African-Americans the largest loyal base constituency, the fact that there has never been a black minority leader, much less speaker, the choice of her successor could split the party. Potentially at stake is the Speakership that could result if the longed-for Blue Wave produces a Democrat House majority.
