It's no secret modern academia has long had a love affair with the “nobility” and “loftiness” of class warfare. Indeed, where do you think this White House gets half of its “fair share” and “you didn’t build that” rhetoric?
It’s about time conservatives worked together to offer America’s youth a better message of real economic justice and freedom. You know, something that doesn’t involve compulsory “charity” (i.e. theft).
That’s the point of The Conservatives, a new film from the Young America’s Foundation, the principal youth activism wing of the conservative movement, and award-winning director Stephen K. Bannon.
The movie’s goal is to offer American college students a more positive alternative to the White House’s big government, top-down solutions.
“Higher education and the Obama administration continue to spew class warfare rhetoric at young Americans, and conservatives must help wake students up from this attempted indoctrination,” YAF spokesman Ron Meyer told The Blaze in an email.
The film stars some of the conservative movement’s best and brightest minds, including Mark Levin, Michelle Malkin, Jonah Goldberg, Monica Crowley, Ph.D., Dr. Walter Williams, Stephen Moore, and Peter Schweizer.
The message is simple: conservatives students are outnumbered, but they’re fighting the good fight and they’re not alone.
“You’re the 300 at Thermopylae! That’s a great fight, and you get to have that fight,” says Jonah Goldberg.
The Conservatives will debut August 1 at Young America’s Foundation’s National Conservative Student Conference in Washington, D.C. The film seeks to help young Americans start and build conservative groups—including YAF chapters—on campus this fall, and is completely free for students.
