President Donald Trump’s proposal for comprehensive tax reform was almost immediately dismissed as heartless and impractical by his political opponents.
But Campus Reform wondered what would some of those opponents think if they were told the same plan was being proposed by someone they adore – Senator Bernie Sanders?
To find out, we headed to George Washington University to ask students their opinions on Trump’s new tax plan. WIthout much explanation, the students immediately made clear their distaste for the plan.
“It’s not the most efficient, nor beneficial to the general populace,” said one student when asked her opinion of Trump’s plan.
“It’s better for the upper class than anyone else,” added another.
After watching student after student express their disapproval of the plan, we then asked those same students what they thought of Senator Bernie Sanders’ new tax plan.
Immediately, they expressed excitement and support after hearing the details of the plan.
The only problem for them? There was no tax plan for Senator Sanders. The plan they loved was actually President Trump’s.
How did they react?
Additionally as MishTalk’s Mike Shedlock writes, unsurprisingly, Students Despise Obama Policies…When Credited to Trump.
In anticipation of the 100-day mark of Donald Trump’s presidency, Campus Reform asked students at George Mason University to evaluate some of the president’s accomplishments.
The students predictably blasted things like the “Apology Tour” and stimulus package, even comparing them to Nazi policies, at least until learning that they were actually accomplished during President Obama’s first 100 days.
What’s Going On
1. These students are so brainwashed by mainstream media they respond to the person, not the idea.
2. More fundamentally, the students know nothing of current events or they would not fall for these types of gotchas.
To be fair, we do not know the percentage of students who did not fall for the traps. However, I strongly suspect the vast majority of the students (and most likely the average person on the street, not just students) would tend to react to the person, not the issue.
Editor’s note: The most important point to take away from this is simply that this is only one easily highlightable example (due to the common reflexive opposition to Trump, regardless of merit) among many, on both sides of the aisle. It is also very important to note that prior to finding out that what they were hearing was in fact Trump’s plan, and not Bernie’s, most maintained an air of knowledgeability, as if they had read and knew Trump’s plan well. Yet, when confronted with the reality of the situation, it became clear that they only felt as though they knew about Trump’s plan, when in fact, they only knew what the MSM had led them to believe. Now this is not to imply one way or the other in regards to Trump’s tax plan, only to point out that this type of certainty and vitriol, is a product of deep state social engineering, and we are all subject to, and affected by it. Stay Vigilant, and keep an open mind.
