Former Fox News host Megyn Kelly issued a stark warning about the dangers of teaching Critical Race Theory in schools and the military.
Speaking on her podcast, Kelly spoke with historian Victor Davis about teaching CRT to children and even in the U.S. military.
Kelly called it an “abuse toward children.”
Hanson stated: “They have really lost the support of the very people in America that were the backbone of their military, and the backbone of the military support for the military.”
“And I’m really afraid of it, because I talk with people, and they said, You know what? If the Left wants to cut the military budget — and they do — maybe they’ll cut Critical Race Theory training, ha ha. I said, Well, they won’t. But maybe that’s what they need. That’s what people are saying. And I think we’re going to have families that served for three generations and four that are not going to volunteer to join the military. And I’m worried about it,” he added.
Kelly responded by saying: “It was bad enough when they were indoctrinating college students, right? College students tend to be more left-leaning, and they’re experimenting with ideas, and I think one’s rationality sets in; they tend to make up their own minds, one way or the other. They don’t all keep that indoctrination forever. At least, it used to be thus.”
“But now, we’re seeing in today’s day and age is, they’re infecting — and forget corporate America, that’s already spread in sports and so on, but they’re infecting kids,” she continued.
“Young children they’re indoctrinating with these divisive messages. Our military — I mean, those things are going to have — it’s abuse toward children. And it’s endangering the men and women in the military and our country as a result,” Kelly added.
Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz issued similar comments last week.
During an interview on “Watters’ World,” Cruz noted the growing movement across the country of parents coming out against CRT being taught in the education system.
“I would yank this license so he never taught again. You are not supposed to train elementary schools to be political activists. Parents are begging school boards, can we please stick to math, science, and history?” host Jesse Watters asked.
“But school boards across America just aren’t listening. And they are doing it at their own peril. The grassroots movement is alive and there is no stopping it. Joining me to react, senator Ted Cruz from the great state of Texas. Senator, thank you for joining “Watters’ world.” Do you think this anti-critical race theory mirrors the tea party movement that we saw maybe a little over a decade ago?” Watters asked.
“I think that’s exactly right. I think it’s waking a lot of people up. The people realizing this garbage is being taught in school, many of them are not people who have been politically active in the past,” Cruz said.
“They have been raising their kids and living their lives, and they are finding that their local school is teaching them that America is fundamentally racist, and all white people are racist. Every issue is along racial lines,” Cruz added.
“And we hate each other. That’s poison being poured into the minds of kids and I think a lot of moms and cats are ticked off by it. Jesse: They have been activated and they are not going too take it anymore. You put forth a bill to withdraw funding from any of this garbage anywhere in the United States?” he asked.
