Fox News contributor and author Douglas Murray shared an alarming “Fox & Friends” statistic on Wednesday while discussing Clovis College (California) students’ censorship of anti-communist posters. Murray said at least a third of American students have “positive feelings” about communism, and he praised the conservative group for trying to “educate their peers” about the dangers of the ideology.

CALI COLLEGE STUDENTS SUE SCHOOL AFTER CENSORSHIP OF ANTI-COMMUNIST CAMPUS FLYERS

DOUGLAS MURAY: It’s amazing, isn’t it? A few years ago, a survey showed that a third of American students, that’s a third, have positive feelings about communism. That’s a pretty horrific statistic. The 20th century had two terrible ideologies, nightmarish ideologies, fascism and communism. And if a third of American college students had positive feelings toward fascism, we would rightly be very alarmed. But a third of students with positive feelings about communism is a demonstration that they know nothing about what communism was and is. And it’s only fair that other students who know try to educate their peers about the realities of communism and socialism, what they did in the 20th century and what they could do in the 21st. They were therefore entirely within their rights and were right to affirm their First Amendment Rights. The fact that the college thought he was doing something controversial is amazing. The fact that they are fighting back now is very encouraging.
