Fox News host Brian Kilmeade opposes teaching critical race theory in schools, but apparently has no objections to being taught Nazi ideology because he claims his school required him to read Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.
Hitler’s manifesto is an anti-Semitic and racist diatribe that helped him rise to power as one of the most brutal dictators in history. It does not belong in schools and is not part of any school curriculum in the United States. Yet Kilmeade claimed he was required to read it in school when he attended Massapequa High School in Long Island, New York, in the 1980s during a segment attacking Joints Chiefs of Staff chairman General Mark Milley, who defended critical race theory at a congressional hearing last week.
“I thought General Milley totally missed the point last week. He said, ‘Oh, I read Mao, I read Stalin’ that has nothing to do with it,” Kilmeade said. “We read ‘Mein Kampf’ in school; no one thought we were Nazis, that is part of the curriculum, you find out about other things and other insurgencies, we get it, that has nothing to do with critical race theory.”
Critical race theory is the study of systemic racism and racial injustice, something that should be taught in schools so our country can right the wrongs of the past and move forward. Republicans have a problem with that because they hate people of color and want to discriminate. In short, Republicans are white supremacists.
Kilmeade’s claim to have been required to read Mein Kampf in school certainly explains his right-wing views, but Twitter users had questions and mocked his hypocrisy.
umm…in a U.S. school? https://t.co/P6xLat9uzi

.@kilmeade has long stood out as one the dumbest Americans to appear on television wearing a tie, which is no small accomplishment, particularly given the fact that he may be the smart one on America’s stupidest morning show. No, Mein Kampf was not in the curriculum. Stop lying https://t.co/qy5vunM4L3

Brian Kilmeade secretly read Mein Kampf when the rest of the class was reading To Kill A Mockingbird.

Sounds like Brian Kilmeade had Christian Identity homeschooling to me. https://t.co/OV97nMRuJF

Brian Kilmeade: I read
“Mein Kampf“ in high school.
A whole nation whispers: Of course you did.

If Brian @kilmeade read Mein Kampf between K-12th grade, that was his own choosing. No public school in the United States assigns that for reading in their curriculum.
Also, why did he read it? https://t.co/TX5Ow49BSE

Brian Kilmeade: I am okay with reading Nazi literature in schools, but I draw the line at academic research at understanding how race, power, and law are linked. https://t.co/DwpAtAMH9a

Once again, Fox News demonstrates that it’s a Nazi propaganda machine.
