“Shame On You”: American youth has no clue about their own freedoms
February 17, 2014
Highlighting how woefully out of touch with US freedoms and rights the youth of America is, Students at UC San Diego failed to name any of the Bill Of Rights when questioned by activist Mark Dice during a recent campus visit.
As Dice grabbed passing students to ask them about their knowledge of the first ten amendments to the US Constitution, he drew a mixture of blank expressions and excuses.
“Can you name some of the Bill Of Rights?” Dice asked a male student.
“Dude, I think I need to take a quiz.” the student replied, clearly desperate to get away because he did not know any of the Bill Of Rights.
“I’m quizzing you right now… and this quiz I’m giving you right now is way more important than whatever quiz you’re taking in a few minutes.” Dice told the student.
“I have homework due in two hours.” another student responded, before admitting he could not name any of first ten amendments.
“You’re a college student at one of the most prestigious in Southern California, and you don’t know the basic Bill Of Rights, shame on you.” Dice told the young man.
“Yeah, yeah, I agree.” the student agreed looking completely mortified.
“Oh I don’t know anything about that.” said a female student to Dice’s remark that he was talking about the Bill Of Rights.
“You’re going to make me feel embarrassed,” the girl said while laughing as Dice told her she is “part of the problem,” and “the reason this country is going down the toilet.”
“I remember studying it, but I don’t remember it,” another student listlessly stated before making the same tired excuse of “I have to go study.”
“Are you going to study the Bill of Rights given that you don’t know them,” Dice responded. “No I’m going to study economics,” the student said, prompting Dice to reply “Sure, you’re going to do good in that when you don’t even know The Bill Of Rights.”
Of all the people Dice was able to interview on camera, one student was able to name “Freedom of Speech” as part of the Bill Of Rights, before stating “and that’s the only one I know.”
“So you just earned a 10%, that’s a big failure,” Dice told him, to which the student said “I’m sorry, how about you name ten of them,” prompting Dice to rattle off all ten amendments in quick succession.
“Gotcha, impressive. I appreciate all that information.” The student told Dice before shaking his hand.
Just two weeks ago, Media analyst Dice documented how many young Americans are completely disconnected from reality, capturing students signing a fake petition to imprison all legal gun owners in concentration camps and even to have them executed.
He has also successfully managed to persuade Americans to agree to repeal the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Amendments, as well as the entire Bill Of Rights (even though many do not know what they are).
Dice continues to call out Americans and highlight the ignorance of many, in an effort to demonstrate how the value of basic freedoms is being destroyed.
