VIDEO: Educated Idiots Don’t Know Who Ronald Reagan Is

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Videos like this really make one wonder whether college is worth the inflated and exorbitant prices they hammer students and their parents (and taxpayers) with.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]President Ronald Reagan, arguably the greatest president in generations, and a man who only ten years ago was voted the “greatest American” of all-time, should be one of the most easily recognizable figures in modern history.


In the sadly funny video below, MRC-TV’s Dan Joseph asks useful idiots at the University of Maryland who the “Great Communicator” is, the 40th President of the United States. Some of the idiotic answers were John Wayne, Kenny Rogers (or just “a country singer”), or George Bush, while several dupes didn’t have a clue in the world.

One dim bulb thought Reagan was “Bush’s dad.”

While a few towards the end of the clip get it right, Joseph said that around half of the students he asked didn’t recognize Reagan.

Maybe he should have held up a picture of Karl Marx. They probably would get that one right.
