VIDEO: Millennials Agree With Gov. Cuomo That America ‘Was Never That Great.’ Fail Spectacularly When Asked to Explain

Published

Campus Reform recently paid a visit to New York City to ask millennials whether or not they agreed with the sentiments espoused by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, that America was “never that great.”

As you probably already have guessed, the overwhelming majority of these products of our government run, progressive education system most definitely agreed with Cuomo. However, when asked to explain why they agreed, they failed rather miserably.

To give some proper context to all this, here’s the full quote by Cuomo:

“We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” he said. “We have not reached greatness. We will reach greatness when every American is fully engaged. We will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone. And every woman’s full potential is realized and unleashed, and every woman is making her full contribution.”

After catching a whole lot of well deserved flack, Cuomo walked back his statement a bit.

Phillips approached a bevy of young people in and around Washington Square Park and asked them if they believed that America is — or was — a great country, and what they thought of Cuomo’s remarks.

Phillips later asked many of the young people if they’d ever been taught the concept of American exceptionalism in school. One young man said that he’d never learned about the concept in school, nor had he ever heard the term before. Another young male said that he hadn’t learned about the concept because he went to a very liberal school.

See some of the more entertaining responses to Phillips’ questioning below:

“Not particularly.”

“The idea that there was a once-great America is, you know, pointing toward this false sense of nationalism, that, you know, what, he’s talking about white America? Yeah, that’s not great.”

“I don’t know, honestly.”

“Not great, but there was definitely, like, some progress and I think we’re, like, going through regression right now.”

“It was never really great, but we do do, like, great things sometimes. Like, we fix a lot of problems, but it’s never been wholly great.”

“Our history, you go from, like, the native genocide, to slavery, to, uh, slavery by a different name, to slavery by a different name again.”

Out of all the insanity that was encountered here, Cabot Phillips encountered one, only one, individual who stated that America has “always been great.”

How sad and pathetic is that? It’s tragic. Is it any wonder this country is going downhill and so many folks are working against their own liberty? Kids are being brainwashed to believe that the flaws and blemishes on our nation’s history is the sum total of our identity as a people, a ploy used by the left to make folks less endeared to the principles America was founded on. They want people to be more gung-ho about big government, a society governed by a specifically chosen “elite” who have all the answers.

In reality, it’s just about the consolidation of power in the hands of a select few who plan to lord it over the masses.

If only millennials would wake up to that reality.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
