Megyn Kelly recently made headlines after she removed her two boys, Thatcher and Edward, from their elite school in the Upper West Side and took the opportunity to announce that she and her family are leaving New York.
The former TV host took the decision because of a letter from the school that described White people as being “reveling in state-sanctioned depravity, snuffling out black life with no consequences” and their children being called “killer cops.”
Apparently, even though Kelly was aware that the educational institutions have “always been far-left,” and this collided with her own ideology, she did not care for a time since most of her close friends were liberals.
However, the journalist was really offended by a recent letter penned after the police-involved death of George Floyd.
The letter that gained momentum and popularity has the title, “If You Really Want to Make a Difference in Black Lives, Change How You Teach White Kids.”
It reads: “There is a killer cop sitting in every school where white children learn. They gleefully soak in their whitewashed history that downplays the holocaust of indigenous native peoples and Africans in the Americas. They happily believe their all-white spaces exist as a matter of personal effort and willingly use violence against black bodies to keep those spaces white.”
The problematic post that was shared online went on to say: “I am tired of white people reveling in their state-sanctioned depravity, snuffing out black life with no consequences. Where’s the urgency for school reform for white kids being indoctrinated in black death and protected from the consequences? Where are the government-sponsored reports looking into how white mothers are raising culturally deprived children who think black death is okay?”
The controversial read was authored by Nahliah Webber, executive director of the Orleans Public Education Network, and originally appeared online on a site dedicated to education.
The 50-year-old former news anchor for Fox News discussed the matter during the latest episode of The Megyn Kelly Show and made it clear that she did not agree with Webber’s views, and exclaimed, “Which boy in my kid’s school is the future killer cop? Is it my boy? Which boy is it?”, before continuing with “Because I don’t happen to believe that they’re in there.”
In addition, Kelly was also angered by the fact that the school tried to distribute Webber’s words “to all the faculty.”
She claimed: “After years of resisting it, we’re going to leave the city. The schools have always been far-left, which doesn’t align with my own ideology, but I didn’t really care; most of my friends are liberals, it’s fine. I come from a Democrat family, I’m not offended at all by the ideology, and I lean center-left on some things.”
Some critics recently said that Kelly is working hard to possibly return to Fox News.
