TPUSA’s Charlie Kirk on ‘Socialist’ Professors: ‘Why Don’t They Teach for Free?’

On Saturday, Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk slammed “socialist” professors for charging students during a Watters World segment titled “the truth about socialism.”

“If socialist professors really believe the nonsense that they profess, why don’t they teach for free?” Kirk asked. “Why do they sell the books back to the kids and why do they charge so much per credit hour?”

“You know if they were such benevolent and wonderful humanitarians and socialists, just do it for free,” he continued on. “Get rid of the profit structure, be a true example.”

He then added that it is interesting that even people who “hate America” refuse to leave.

Kirk’s words come on the same week as UN Ambassador Nikki Haley advised high schoolers at a Turning Point USA convention should avoid provocative talk aimed at “owning the libs.”

“I know that it’s fun and that it can feel good, but step back and think about what you’re accomplishing when you do this — are you persuading anyone? Who are you persuading?” Haley told the kids at the gathering for the group founded by Kirk. “We’ve all been guilty of it at some point or another, but this kind of speech isn’t leadership — it’s the exact opposite.”
