With a new Gallup poll out showing a stark decrease in the number of young Americans who consider themselves proud to be American, Cabot Phillips from Campus Reform visited college students in New York who had mixed reactions when asked about their pride in America, with many admitting they were not proud.
Our kids future is stark for sure if Liberal colleges are turning out students like this.

Via Campus Reform, Cabot Phillips visited UC-Santa Barbara to find out if students like the plan by President Trump to send troops to the border. They hate the plan until they find out President Obama did the same thing (3 years earlier).
Last week, President Trump announced a plan to deploy troops from the National Guard to the southern border in an attempt to stop the influx of illegal activity in the region.
Critics of the move were vocal in their condemnations, claiming it was excessive and subtly racist in nature.
“It’s not justified…it’s a totally uncalled for act of power.”
The decision, while controversial, is not without precedent, as Presidents Obama and Bush each enacted similar measures during their times in office. […]
Students immediately made clear that they would not support any measure that would send troops to protect the border.
One opened by saying “It’s not justified…it’s a totally uncalled for act of power,” while another remarked that “I don’t think it’s good to send militarized troops to people who are coming in unarmed.”
One student said bluntly, “I’m not a huge fan of the military to begin with…I think it would be a huge waste of money.”

As Senator Marco Rubio noted, to effectively ban ‘assault’ weapons, “you would literally have to ban every semiautomatic rifle that’s sold in America.”
And that will never happen.
However, using the Trump tax plan, when George Washington University students were asked what they thought of Senator Bernie Sander’s plan, they thought the plan was terrific.
Campus Reform asked Washington, D.C. college students two simple questions: “Do you like socialism?” and “What is socialism?” They could answer the first question but, had a lot of trouble with the second. Our kids future is stark for sure if Liberal colleges are turning out students like this.
One student said of socialism, “I think people throw that word around to try and scare you, but if helping people is socialism, than I’m for it.”
When asked how she would define socialism, her answer was simple: “I mean honestly I’m not not exactly sure.”
“I guess just, you know, getting rid of that wealth gap in the United States?” ventured another.
One student supported it passionately, saying “It’s more of an open form of government and it feels a lot more accessible to a lot more people,” but when asked to explain what socialism actually entails, could only repeat now-common refrain: “To be quite honest I don’t know.”
The sheer stupidity by the students on display here is shameful. How stupid does one have to be to ban Christmas? My how far the University of Virginia has fallen.

In this season’s most anticipated holiday spin-off, Campus Reform visits the University of Virginia dressed as “The Hipsters Who Stole Christmas.”
With schools across the country outright banning even such innocuous Christmas decorations as evergreen trees and images of Santa because they could be interpreted as being “non-inclusive,” Campus Reform wanted to find out what students think of the idea.
CRO reporters Amber Athey and Cabot Phillips visited UVA, created a faux student group called “Students for an Inclusive Holiday Season,” and asked students to sign a petition getting rid of school references to Christmas because of the holiday’s “oppressive” and “triggering” nature.
In less than two hours, nearly twenty students opted to sign the fake Christmas-banning petition.
“This time of year, it feels like people can shove their holiday happiness in your face, like ‘Merry Christmas!’ and it just gets kind of old,” Phillips ventured, as a signee agreed.
Athey told another group of students that the faux student organization was sending a letter to the administration to let them know that the overt celebration of Christmas can be “almost oppressive” for some students on campus.
“I will totally sign,” a female student enthusiastically responded.
“I know a lot of students who aren’t religious, so when they see the Christmas trees and all the lights it can be a bit triggering, so we’re just trying to make campus a safe space for them,” Athey explained to a student while he signed the petition.
“Cool, well good luck,” the student said.
Several students acknowledged that perhaps UVA favors Christmas more than other holidays, but said they had gotten used to seeing all of the decorations on campus.
“No one should have to get used to oppression,” Phillips quipped.
Campus Reform also attempted to tie an increase in Christmas spirit to Trump’s victory by suggesting that Christmas enthusiasts had become “emboldened” by “Trump’s rhetoric,” and some students agreed that it seemed they were hearing “Merry Christmas” more than ever before.
“It can be scary for some students,” Athey observed, to the sage nod of one petition signer.
