    Nearly one in five millennials consider Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong Un “heroes,” according to a Thursday poll.

    The poll demonstrated an increase in acceptance of socialism and communism among American millennials and was released by the Victims of Communism Memorial Fund.

    One-half of millennials and one-third of Americans would prefer to reside in a socialist or communist nation instead of a capitalist democracy, according to the poll.

    “One in five (23%) of Americans age 21-29 consider Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin a ‘hero’; 26% for Vladimir Lenin; 23% for Kim Jong Un,” the study notes. Furthermore, over one-fifth of millennials surveyed had a positive opinion of Karl Marx.

    The study also found that 71 percent of millennials could not pinpoint communism’s definition and four-fifths of the generation did not know how many lives were lost as a result of the ideology.

    The question is, how do these people form their opinions? Where do these young people (not long out of high school) get their information from?

    Before any of you leftists try to discredit the report, let me remind you that Bernie Sanders is an admitted Socialist, and he was a close second for the Democrat presidential nominee. Now we find out the only reason he didn't get the nomination is because the race was fixed against him. So this poll seems to reflect the election outcome.

    If people are saying they would rather live in a government system they know nothing about, it can only mean one thing, and that is they were "told" how great such a system is. Who told them that?

    I'm telling ya, we really need to do something about our education and social programs, and I don't mean throw more money at it.

    This is why good parents won't send their children to public schools if at all possible

    Okay, but don't you think with this trend, it will eventually be four out of five unless we do something about it now?

    John Kelly thinks General Lee is a hero. Lee actually killed Americans, imagine that!

    I think the worst thing in that poll is 60% consider Ronald Reagan a hero along with 31% who consider Trump a hero. - Source
