Back to School: How Kids Are Being Taught to Hate America

As our kids head back to school, there are massive protests and riots in America’s largest cities, increased anti-American sentiment, and the cancelling of some of the most important people from Western history. Amidst all this chaos comes the question: why is this happening? Why do these people in the streets hate America so much? The answer is they were taught to hate it. On this special “back to school” episode we are joined by Katie Gorka, who gives a crash course on American public education and where it all went wrong.
