This is awesome, and would be funny as hell if it wasn’t so damned sad!
Neil Cavuto was gracious enough to offer free airtime and a microphone to a complete ignoramus, who doubles as the leader of the Million Student March, the socialist mission of which is to steal all the money from the wealthy so that they can have free stuff, like free college educations.
Neil skewers her logically several times during their dialogue, but Sally Dumbitch carries on, not skipping a beat in her socialist stupidity.
Sally Dumbitch: The three core demands…. are free public college, a cancellation of student debt, and a $15 an hour minimum wage for people who work on the campus.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
Neil Cavuto: And how is that going to be paid?
Sally Dumbitch, whose Indian name is Deer in the Headlights, looking dazed and confused, offers momentary deadspace and crickets): Ummmm, great question. Uh, I mean, you know, so, I’m not sure if you’re talking about like a national level or at particular schools (what!?). I can sort of touch on both.
Neil Cavuto: Well, if you want all that stuff, someone has to pick up the tab. Who would that be?
Sally Dumbitch, dazed and confused again: Ummm, the one percent of people in society that are hording, umm, the wealth, and really sort of causing, umm, a catastrophe….
Neil Cavuto: Alright, so if the one percent just had their taxes raised a few years ago back when it was 40%, then to pay for the healthcare law they had them raised another few percentage points. Then they had their deductions limited to raise another couple points, depending on the state or locality, they’re pushing over about 50% in taxes. How much higher do you think, how much more do you think they should pay?
Sally Dumbitch: Ummm, I think enough until we have a system where not one in two American families are, uh, threatened with poverty.
Neil Cavuto: So, where do they go, let’s say if you tax them, they’re smart folks, these people, these one percent horders, right? So, if they leave here, then who’s going to pay for all this stuff that you want?
Sally Dumbitch, obviously confused: If they leave….?
Neil Cavuto: The country.
Sally Dumbitch: Oh, ummm, I mean there is always going to be a one percent in the US….
It gets even funnier, or more depressing, depending on your perspective.
