Most Harvard Students Believe Trump Is More Dangerous Than ISIS
CampusReform.org conducted a survey among the Ivy League students this week to see if Trump was viewed as more of a danger to Americans than the terror organization ISIS. The answers from the misinformed liberal students were not surprising.
The question was who scares you more: President Donald Trump or the Islamic State? And for most Harvard University students, the U.S. president is the bigger threat.
“We always see students that are saying everything threatens them in the world and they are always being taught by the media the sensationalist idea that everything Donald Trump does must be the end of the world,” Cabot Phillips, a contributor at CampusReform.org, said Thursday.
Phillips said his poll found the vast majority of Harvard students are more scared of Trump’s policies because for years, former President Barack Obama reassured that “ISIS is a J.V. team, they’re not this real threat. Also it’s the professors and the media who, again, are constantly saying, look, Donald Trump is the real threat here,” Phillips said.
“I think more of [Trump’s] policies mainly because I think terrorism really isn’t that big of a deal,” a Harvard snowflake who wished to remain anonymous said, reiterating that ISIS was less of a threat because that is what he was taught to believe from all his public schools
These opinions endure despite reports from Syria on attacks carried out by ISIS, including the most recent on Wednesday when 33 people were killed execution-style by militants, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported. Or the recent Sarin gas release from an ISIS weapons depot that Syria recently destroyed which resulted in the killing of numerous innocent civilians.
Students have even created an anti-Trump “resistance school” to fight back against the president’s policies and agenda. A man said during the questionnaire he saw Trump as an immediate danger to his “everyday life” despite the disasters of the Obama administration.
“Do I think ISIS is going to cause a threat to me living my everyday life? Not really. Do I think the rhetoric that Donald Trump is using and empowering these folks hidden in a corner for a long time with hateful views…Do I think that’s more of a threat than ISIS? Yes,” he said hatefully.
While not all students believe Trump is the main threat to American society, the ones who don’t are constantly shut down, ridiculed an told they cannot speak about their opinion, Phillips said.”
“It’s very hard on campus for conservatives to speak out because there’s so much hatred, and racisim right now in our country,” one woman said.
Phillips added that students don’t believe they are invincible. “It’s not that they fear nothing, is that they fear the wrong things.”
