The day after President Trump delivered his first State of the Union Address (SOTU), Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform went to John Jay College in NYC to talk to students and find out what they thought about the speech by asking them to react to a few select quotations. Almost unanimously, the students found each of the quotes to be “warmongering”, “aggressive,” and “immature.” However, what they didn’t know until later was they were reacting to statements made by Barack Obama during HIS SOTU speeches.
Cabot Phillips: I have a few quotes here from the State of the Union I want to get your feedback first talking about Isis saying quote, “We need to call them what they are, killers and fanatics that have to be hunted down and destroyed.” What’s your thought on that well first.
Respondant: Well first off Isis is fake. It is something that government made up so they can continue doing what they want to do which is world domination.
World Domination? I think that guy watched too much “Pinky and The Brain” as a child. But other respondant answers were just as crazy:
Anotther student answered, “I feel like that’s a very strong statement when we say something like that it kind of makes you like a target”
Philips asked about a different quote. “Next up, talking about the general world stage saying, quote, ‘when you come after Americans we come after you and may take time but we have long memories and our reach has no limit’ what’s your thought on that?”
The “future of America” responded to that quote with statments such as:
“I don’t think that’s a good way of handling something. It’s like he doesn’t think before speaking and how it’s going to offend a lot of people.”
“He should be careful because there’s other countries out in the world that has like you know like automatic weapons and you know nuclear bomb.”
And wait until you read the responses to the quotes about China policy.
Sadly this video proves the limited knowledge of current events had by these young students. They have become like lemmings. The everyone gets a trophy, no one loses, everything is done for them, hide in safe spaces generation has never learned how to think for itself because they have been spoon-fed since birth. And what they are being spoon fed is liberalism.
But there is hope. After being told he was really reacting to Obama quotes, one student said:
Unfortunately, a lot of times what you hear is tainted by bias and you really can’t go off that. So, do your own research educate yourself into your duty it’s you know the future of the country.
Amen on that quote!
