Over the past few months, radical liberals have been rioting and looting all over the nation. In August, Chicago Black Lives Matter organizer Ariel Atkins justified the estimated $60 million in damages as “reparations.”
“I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,” Atkins said. “That makes sure that person has clothes. That is reparations. Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.”
This inspired Campus Reform to head to George Washington University in Washington D.C. to ask college students what their thoughts are on the rioting and looting that has descended our country into chaos. Their answers were disturbing, to say the least.
“In my opinion…it definitely can be justified given that’s pretty much the only way we can get our message out there,” one student said, with another adding that the looting and rioting is “justified. People in power have stolen so much more. Anything that any of them loot will never match up to how much that’s been stolen from them.”
“I’m in support of the riots personally, whatever you need to do to be heard is the cost of it,” a third student said, adding that anyone who is upset about the financial toll of rioting and looting should “reevaluate” perspectives on people versus objects. When confronted over the fact that someone had to pay for stolen or destroyed objects, the student didn’t back down.
“Everything can be replaced… Target is, like, a multimillion dollar, like, company, and at the end of the day they can flip that and get it back,” the student said.
Not stopping there, she added that detractors should “understand that there’s a larger cause that people are fighting for versus the cost that it’s gonna take to repair your small business.”
Another student said that looting and rioting was “inevitable,” going on to declare that “if change is gonna come, there will be some violence that comes with that.”
“I guess it’s all part of the healing process,” a different student said about the looting and rioting, adding that “some people get caught in the way, and it’s unfortunate, but for meaningful progress to happen unfortunate things happen.”
A final student called out the “many white nationalist protests that have gotten violent” and complained that “the conversation has never been about…their looting and the violence that they bring. I mean, it’s easier to characterize people of color as violent than white people, I guess.”
The ignorance of the next generation of Americans is truly terrifying.
