Thanks a ton, public school teachers!

Millennials, people aged 23-38, are the largest voting block in America. Likewise, they comprise the largest group in the workforce today. After seeing some of these numbers, it makes you wonder whether or not President Trump has re-election in the bag come 2020.

Ultimately, this is some scary stuff. This is what happens when Hollywood liberals and far-left college professors grab hold of the impressionable mind. The results are frightening.

Meanwhile, 36% of millennials polled say that they approve of communism, which is up significantly from 28% in 2018.

Socialism, a dirty word to the president and many of his supporters, has shown a decrease in favorability in all age groups except the Silent Generation (age 74+) and millennials, of which 70% say they’d be likely to vote for a socialist candidate.

Other nuggets from the report include that 22% of millennials believe “society would be better if all private property was abolished,” and that 45% of Generation Z members and millennials believe that “all higher education should be free.”

Reactions:

This can’t be true. Are there any Millennials out there that can accurately describe a communistic society with a historical example that suggests America would be better as a communist country? I think this was a algorithm skewed poll or people do not really know what it is.

Mostly because they don’t know what Communism actually is. It’s like several Bernie supporters I know who also want to pay lower taxes. They are just angry and they don’t even know why

Pure ignorance! Communism doesn’t produce iPhones or even avocado toast. What Millennials actually want is a redistribution of the current spoils of Capitalism. And then more Capitalism, followed by more redistribution, followed by…

What an indictment on public education, and maybe education in general. Some 93% of professors in upper ed identify as Liberal. Just some terrible indoctrination, and education overall, perhaps across most of the education spectrum.

I’m nearly certain that a supermajority of those saying they approve of communism cant even define communism in one sentence — that’s how badly educated this Millennial cohort is.

I suggest the vacation in Caracas to see how well this form of government works

Next steps for understanding the data: A deeper survey into how they developed their views and who influenced them; a survey of their basic math, economic and financial literacy, and basic political science understanding.

I don’t think most millennials understand what communism really is. Let’s remember that education system has taught rewritten history and pushed an agenda for decades now.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Published

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
