As I recall it's the extreme right who oppose education. "I don't have children, so why should I have to pay for schools?" "Taxation is slavery, so why should I have to be enslaved to pay for schools and public libraries? And here's a priceless one from a poster here on City Data: "College is for losers. Don't you know that there are actual witches in all the universities?"

The blogger that OP gave a link to is outraged because a young man from generation Z (NOT a millenial) asked him:

I am white, and feel that the issues facing the black community in the US from the police, legal elements, property, education are skewed, and need to be rectified. I am concerned that someone with your pulpit isnít out there helping out.

How dare a young person feel concern about racism in the United States? Such a shame the progressives got to him before the Proud Boys could work their magic. The country is going to hell - HELL, I tell you!

But this country has been going to hell for decades, possibly starting when President Kennedy was assassinated. When is the country going to get there?

Yep, they were ripe for the picking and , being the skilled con man he is, Donald Trump picked up on those factors and went for the jugular. Sad part is, some of them still haven't realized they were taken. Some people just can not be helped, I guess.

I've tried to show you the impossibility of AGW using rational, established physics. The problem is you don't understand it.

you didn't even need a high school education to figure out Hillary Clinton was a crook in 2016.

Most right wingers have no idea what socialism is. They sure love their Medicare and ss, and the idea that Trump can order companies out of China though

Just give the millenials a cell phone to look at an energy drink to sip and they're happy. Ignorant and happy.
