    Yeah, it was fun to see the signs of cognitive dissonance in these leftist drones but facts don’t matter. It’s all about the feelz. 

    These Campus Reform guys can spout facts until blue in the face and it won’t change a thing. Narratives change minds, not facts. We’ll keep losing until that sinks in.

    “What’s your question?”

    I think our education system is broken.

    But I was probably that stupid when I was a freshman in college.

    Can we raise the voting age?

    That wasn’t a question — it was an evasive maneuver.

    These kids are being taught something, but it isn’t educational.

    To about 35?

    I couldn’t listen to all of them, speaking in lockstep. I would have either screamed at the screen until my throat was raw or torn out my hair. I’m not into masochism. Sigh.

    I’m reminded of the story a Ricochetti told about the impossibility of trying to convince some woman Lincoln was a Republican.

    Very entertaining.

    The problem with videos like this is that the interviews can be cherry-picked, so we don’t know whether this silliness is representative of large numbers of students on campus. I’m not criticizing this particular video, just noting that the technique can be misused.

    Agreed, but it still serves the purpose of demonstrating left-wing brainwashing. Even when confronted with the truth, they can’t handle it. 

    They’re so convinced of their own virtue, they have no clue they’re the real racists.

    And — therein lies a big problem. How in the world can we ever solve it? So much ignorance and outright prejudice against Republicans from the left even when confronted with facts. Sigh.

    Maybe the student loan debt can be our friend. What if we refused to cover it with tax dollars? What if the colleges and banks had to work it out in bankruptcy proceedings? I’m just spit-balling here, but I’m looking for some way to rip out the education establishment root and branch. The only way to send the lefty rats fleeing is to burn it all down.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that Republicans and Democrats are just different sides of the same coin—they are equally ignorant in their own ways. I’m so done with the Republican party you can stick a fork in it—I’m not playing their little games anymore. Call me when the sectarian war starts.

    Oh, it’s certainly a “greatest hits” of idiocy, but it’s also pretty obviously true in many cases. I run into it enough that I can tell what most college students will say while trying to defend the latest leftist talking points.

    The tactics are predictable: for example, when someone says “I choose not to believe that,” it’s simultaneously an admission that they have no familiarity with whatever you told them and a declaration that they’re not interested in learning.

    I wonder if any student noticed the term “undocumented workers”. That is a tell to me about the leanings of the speaker. Probably not. But if the quote had “illegal alien”, they would probably be triggered into some response. This tells me the depth of their indoctrination.

    I’ve noticed here and there that some people are using”illegal aliens” again. That is, in fact, what they are.
