Socialism sounds good...'until it actually applies to you' (VIDEO)

Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips joined Fox & Friends Sunday to discuss his latest video.

Phillips said the topic of socialism sounds good "until it actually applies to you."

Campus Reform’s Cabot Phillips asked students at Florida International University in Miami their thoughts on socialism recently. Most of them said they preferred socialism over capitalism, but when the same students were asked if they would be willing to give up some of their GPA to help the “less fortunate,” they weren’t so sure about the idea.

Phillips joined Fox & Friends Sunday to discuss his latest Campus Reform video and the topic of socialism more generally. 

”I think a lot of people realize, it’s very compassionate, the idea of everyone else paying for your free college, your free health care. Not so compassionate when you’re the one who’s having to give up things that you’ve worked so hard for in the name of equality,” Phillips said.

Phillips added that the Left has “weaponized” the concept of equality, but not the type of equality all Americans should be on board with. 

”They want equality of outcome, and there’s nothing compassionate about that. When you flip it around, you help these students realize that redistributing the wealth sounds good until it actually applies to you,” Phillips said.
