Millennials are idiots.
There’s no good reason to be proud of being a millennial. We’re loud, egotistical, disrespectful and lazy.
And I speak as one, with an insider’s view that makes me want to give up on humanity altogether. If this is our future, I’d rather live in the past. Someone get me a time machine already before I start bashing my head into something solid on repeat.
That seems like one of the most proactive solutions to the investment-focused Marketwatch's report that “a third of millennials say they believe more people were killed under George W. Bush than Joseph Stalin.”
That’s inexcusable. There is no good reason anyone should think Bush murdered more people than Stalin.
If you’re against the Iraq War, you’re against the Iraq War. And if you think Bush pushed us into it for oil, then you think Bush pushed us into it for oil. In which case, yes, he does have a lot of blood on his hands.
As much as I disagree with those opinions, I can understand where they come from.
I’m well aware that education (or lack thereof) factors in greatly to people’s beliefs. And millennials are automatically behind the curve on historical and political facts thanks to the careful conditioning they receive during their formative years.
In that regard, they’re not entirely to blame for being intellectually deficient. They’ve been taught to hate Bush, and they probably haven’t been taught nearly enough about Stalin. In which case it actually makes sense that “almost half of Americans between the ages of 16 and 20 said they would vote for a socialist, while 21% would go so far as to back a communist.”
They have no excuse, however, when it comes to comparing Bush to Stalin.
Even the worst of public or higher education’s anti-Bush rhetoric doesn’t have him murdering 4 million to 20 million people, as Stalin did. And as for the excuse that they might not know anything about Stalin whatsoever...
Then look it up before answering the question, you intellectually lazy idiot! Just pull out your smartphone and ask it a question already! I know you know how to do that much.
The one positive out of all of this is that these Bush-hating, Stalin-downplaying, socialist or communist millennial idiots are still so annoyed about what happened to their champion, Bernie Sanders, that they’re probably not even going to vote next month anyway.
