Columnist: Beware of Leftist Assault on America's Kids

Ad Feedback

Author and Washington Times columnist Marybeth Hicks is on a campaign to expose what she views as a Left-wing's assault on the nation's children.

Hicks cites the almost universal disregard for Constitution Day as an illustration of liberals' attempt to shape young minds.

Although federal law requires public schools to observe that holiday, studies show up to 90 percent are not doing so.

Hicks, who worked in the Reagan administration, says that statistic is just one example of how political correctness and pop culture are misleading America's kids.

She warns that today's parents must be brave parents to protect their children from being misled by the media, educators and their peers.

In her new book, Don't Let the Kids Drink the Kool-Aid: Confronting the Left's Assault on Our Families, Faith, and Freedom, she sounds the alarm on the views of the next generation.

Hicks reports that frightening percentages of our children believe:

  • Socialism is better than the free market.
  • Christianity is judgmental.
  • America is the villain of world history.
  • Family does not mean marriage.

She said parents must work to reset their children's moral compass so they have the strong character and values needed to lead our nation into the future.

If not, she warns that we'll soon wake up in a very different America -- a far cry from the land of the free.
