Watch: Americans support insane policies as long as celebrities agree – Karl Marx for president, Soylent Green in schools and more!

In his latest YouTube video, legendary spoof interviewer Mark Dice proves once again that America’s pop culture-dominated society will go along with just about anything if they think for a moment that the rich and famous are doing the same things.
Dice, joined in his latest “Man on the Street” video by Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change, the two veteran YouTubers demonstrate how most Americans will support any crazy political cause, no matter how ridiculous, if they are told celebrities endorse them.
In his first encounter, Dice stops a man and says, “You’ve probably heard on the news that Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Beyonce and others are calling for an invasion into North Korea to liberate the poor people there… do you think that’s the right decision — we should maybe get behind the celebrity initiative and help out?”
And the man answers: “Well, being a former Marine myself, and them out there doing that stuff, I don’t know, I think it would be a good thing, but that’s my own opinion” (for the record, Marine vets will often say, “There is no such thing as a former Marine — once a Marine, always a Marine).
Dice responds: “They’re [celebrities probably in a better position to respond than most people; they understand these situations [looks at the camera], the celebrities…”
“Exactly… they are,” the man agrees.
“We can get behind the ‘celebrity coalition,'” Dice says.
“Sure, sure we can,” says the man.
Then, it’s Rudkowski’s turn.
In talking with a young woman, he says, “So, Taylor Swift obviously has her pulse [sic] on the youth of America, and all these celebrities are endorsing Karl Marx for president in 2016. Do you support her decision?”
“Yes, I mean, sure… everyone has their own opinion,” the young woman responds.
“So Karl Marx 2016?” Rudkowski asks.
“Yes,” responds the woman, smiling.
Another woman tells Dice that she agrees with Kanye West’s and Beyonce’s (fake) initiative to repeal the Second Amendment.
Rudkowski then discusses a (fake) initiative endorsed by Jay Z to introduce a eugenics provision to Obamacare; the man being interviewed, who is wearing ear buds, takes one off and holds it to Rudkowski’s ear, saying, “I’m actually listening to Jay Z right now.”
One more young woman agrees with Dice that, because Taylor Swift is allegedly pushing it, the country should begin serving Soylent Green, “to keep the kids healthy.”
“Yes, yes,” the women confidently and enthusiastically agrees.
