I hate to be “that guy,” but Millenials… get it together, kids. You’re looking bad.
41% of Millennials believe that fewer than 2 million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust.
22% of Millennials haven’t heard of the Holocaust or unsure if they have
66% of Millenials don’t even know that Auschwitz was a death camp.
Sadly, I can’t say that the rest of the public is vastly better off, but the Millennials are distinctly worse. And then there’s this:
People should be allowed to use Nazi slogans or symbols: 15%
This is perhaps the worst example of ignorance of the bunch. Sure, the Nazis were scumbags and if you’re proudly waving a swastika because you think Hitler was Da Bomb, you’re a dumbass. But this is America, gottverdammt, and you’re allowed to wave around any Blödmann symbols you like… swastika, hammer & sickle, Little Red Book, Planned Parenthood logo, Confederate flag, what-the-frak-ever. This survey indicates that 85% of respondents have no idea what the 1st Amendment, not to mention common sense, is actually about.
But wait! There’s more!
It’s easy to blame this level of Earth-shattering dumbth on the Millennials. But let’s face it: kids know what they’re taught. We olds of the world have clearly failed them in the teaching department. Soon these ill-educated younglings will be voting. Imagine the world they’ll create, one based on “feelings” and ignorance. Gah.
