Far left wants to ‘turn your kids into hard-core activists by remaking education’
“Ingraham Angle” host Laura Ingraham opened Wednesday’s show by warning that the far-left orthodoxy being peddled in one of the most elite public school systems in the country will become the model for American education if Joe Biden and the Democrats take power in November.
“Black Lives Matter’ zealots now have outsized influence in school districts like Fairfax County [Virginia] and their goal is to turn your kids into hard-core activists by remaking education from top to bottom,” she said, playing a clip in which one education official talked about establishing an “anti-racist school system” and adjusting the social studies curriculum.
“When you watch that, you imagine the worst of Howard Zinn plus maybe the 1619 Project,” she said. “Every subject, every extracurricular activity will be perverted to turn your kids into mini-Ilhan Omars.
“They will learn capitalism is racist, history as conventionally taught is racist, literature — most of that — is racist, patriotic songs are racist, and the Declaration and the Constitution, of course, they are racist. Are you sensing a theme here?”
