It’s almost like a preprogrammed response from unthinking drones. Too bad we’re talking about college students, isn’t it?
Have you noticed yet how consistently wrong students can be on tests of basic political awareness?
Video after video has people jumping to conclusions and getting offended, only to completely reverse course and spin excuses for why it’s not REALLY so horrible when they find out the ‘offensive’ words were said by the OTHER team.
As you might expect, the villain in their narrative is President DJT, and his ‘crime’ is racism. Proof? Context? None of that matters. Watch how students pile their contempt on what they THINK is a Trump quote ‘proving’ how ‘racist’ he is.
Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform is doing the interviewing:
It’s a little bit of a set-up. He DOES mention Trump, and the ICE plans to deport those who have broken the law. He used the phrase ‘criminal illegal aliens’.
Then he asks their reaction to a ‘quote that has been making the rounds on social media’.
What’s the catch? It’s from 2014 when someone ELSE was ‘occupying’ the Oval Office. Here’s the quote:
We are a nation of laws, undocumented workers broke our laws and I believe they must be accountable. Especially those who may be dangerous. That’s why over the last 6 years, deportations of criminals are up 80% and we’re going to keep focussing on threats to our security.
What did they think about that quote? Here is a taste of their answers:
That it came from a place of ‘white American nationalism’.
‘Donald Trump has embraced this rhetoric of racism and xenophobia…’
‘I don’t think that quote really stands true.’
‘This admin. has totally not done anything moral.’
‘this was really awful’.
And there were others saying about the same thing.
For anyone who stopped to think about the original quote, the use of the phrase ‘undocumented workers’ should have been a dead giveaway. (Remember when someone tried to get him to use the PC word for illegals and he refused?)
Another thing — these are college students, right? How are their math scores? “6 years”? Trump is in his FIRST term, why would he be talking about the record for 6 years?
At the ‘big reveal’, their backpedaling was pretty sad… and very telling.
They WANT to believe the best about Obama and the WORST about Trump.
Who do you think has been priming them to believe that?
The Leftist media (legacy and web-based) and their buddies in Hollywood, and Silicon Valley.
We’ve all seen the dishonest games the left have played with the power they’re entrusted with, they’re obviously unworthy of that trust.
But what about 2020? Could a moral person pull a lever for Trump with their integrity intact? Would Jesus himself vote for Trump? We’re glad you asked. There’s a brand new book that covers precisely that question:
“Would Jesus Vote For Trump?” by Doug Giles and Brandon Vallorani.
Would Jesus ever choose someone, with a less than stellar past, to be a leader? Would Jesus be cool with how Trump blasts CNN, The Left, and his feckless ‘compadres’ on The Right? What about Health Care? Would the Great Physician give Trump’s opposition to ObamaCare the ‘two thumbs up?’ Find out in this BEST-SELLER!
