Megyn Kelly has recently shown her dislike towards teaching critical race theory in school as well as in the military. The former Fox News host called it “abuse toward children” while speaking with historian Victor Davis Hanson on her podcast -- ‘The Megyn Kelly Show’.

On the show, Kelly discussed a number of issues, including “the cost of defunding the police, the state of the Biden presidency, Gwen Berry and her Olympics stand.” They also went on to talk about the implementation of Critical Race Theory issues into the school and the military. Hanson said, “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.”

The 67-year-old conservative commentator continued: “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.”

To which, Kelly said: “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. 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,” she added.

The 50-year-old journalist's remarks created quite a stir on the Internet as people went on to express their thoughts. While slamming Kelly, a user tweeted, “Megan Kelly lives in a fantasy world where Santa Claus is real and he is lily white like her. She lives in a world where racism does not exist & she's still on TV & folks like her.” The second one noted, “It's not even taught to children. Spreading lies and propaganda again, Meg.”

A person stated: “Megyn Kelly Compares Critical Race Theory to 'Abuse Towards Children' WOW  YOU ABUSE YOUR KIDS BY TELLING THEM THE ‘TRUTH’ ABOUT THE CRUELTY OF SLAVERY AND HOW BADLY THE REPUBLICANS TREATED ANYONE WHO LIVE ON THEIR LAND  OUR HISTORY NEEDS THE TRUTH NOT THE WINNERS ACOUNT.” “@megynkelly doesn't know what critical race theory is. Neither does the state of Texas or any other critic of this fake crisis. Texas put this on Twitter. It's preposterous. Teaching about tolerance, anti-racism and equity is not an infection,  it is teaching kids to be citizens,” another one added.
