Good news. The big new college revolution is being televised and the people leading it are showing everyone what absolute morons they are.
The organizer of the #MillionStudentMarch appeared on the FOX Business Network with Neil Cavuto last night and proved that no one in this movement should be taken seriously.

Neil Cavuto Asks Student Protestor How U.S. Will Pay for Socialist Wish List
Keely Mullen is a national organizer for #MillionStudentMarch, a movement that demands “tuition-free public college, cancellation of all student debt, and a $15 minimum wage for all campus workers” in response to the crisis caused by rapacious corporate education.
“#MillionStudentMarch is a movement for a more equitable and fair system of education as opposed to the really corporate model we have right now,” Mullen said.
Mullen is a graduate of the prestigious Francis W. Parker School and political science student at Northeastern University, according to her LinkedIn profile.
Cavuto asked how this agenda would be financed.
“Great question, I mean, you know, so—I’m not sure if you’re talking about a national level or per school?” Mullen said.
When pressed, Mullen said that the top one percent of earners needed to pay tax rates upwards of 90 percent, a rate 10 percentage points higher than that proposed by socialist Thomas Piketty. Mullen said it was worth it.
“I live in a world and I see a system around me where there is a population that is doing nothing to contribute to the progression of society,” Mullen said, referring to the freeloaders at the top who pay more in taxes than the bottom 90 percent of earners combined.
Here’s the video. This is so painful to watch:
Her talking points are so left wing that it’s surprising she didn’t mention the Koch brothers.
