Megyn Kelly said on Monday that she’s pulling her kids out of an Upper West Side private school because of their “woke” leftism – and plans to leave the city altogether – after a letter circulated accusing white people of “reveling in state-sanctioned depravity” and comparing white children to “killer cops,” The New York Post reports.
On her podcast The Megyn Kelly Show, the former Fox news host read excerpts of a letter by Nahliah Webber, the executive director of Orleans Public Education Network, that was circulated to white parents at the $56,000-a-year private school.
Kelly acknowledged that while the all-boys Collegiate School school’s “far-left” ideology doesn’t jibe with her own views, she “didn’t really care.”
“After years of resisting it, we’re going to leave the city,” Kelly said, “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.”?
The offending letter, titled “If You Really Want to Make a Difference in Black Lives, Change How You Teach White Kids,” was shared in an education blog post on June 29.
“There is a killer cop sitting in every school where white children learn,” the June 29 post says. “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.”
Webber continues, “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?”
Kelly, who said she’s also pulling her daughter out of her school, slammed Webber’s opinions.
“They’ve gone around the bend. They have gone off the deep end.”
“Which boy in my kid’s school is the future killer cop? Is it my boy? Which boy is it?” the journalist asked. “Because I don’t happen to believe that they’re in there.”
