According to a poll released on Thursday, nearly one in five millennials consider Kim Jong Un and Joseph Stalin "heroes."
The poll showcases the increasing popularity of socialism and communism among millennial Americans. The poll was released by the Victims of Communism Memorial Fund.
More on the story from Daily Caller:
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.
“Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative,” said Marion Smith, Victims of Communism’s executive director, in the press release obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. “This troubling turn highlights widespread his
torical illiteracy in American society regarding socialism and the systemic failure of our education system to teach students about the genocide, destruction, and misery caused by communism since the Bolshevik Revolution one hundred years ago.”
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.
Apparently universities aren't doing a good job of teaching history about what happens when socialism is put in place.

Science Supports Trump! Doctors From 30 Countries Agree With President, Makes CNN Host Look Like A Moron
CNN host Brian Stelter is an absolute joke. Recently on his show, the George Costanza wannabe said, “Historians will note the thrill in [Trump’s] voice when he announced he’s taking hydroxychloroquine, despite mounting evidence it doesn’t work against Covid-19 and could be harmful.”
This, of course, is a load of garbage and completely inaccurate. There have been thousands of doctors across the world who have said that hydroxychloroquine has been the best treatment for people with the coronavirus.
