On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, Rachel Campos-Duffy joined Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss the left’s long-time influence on children and its emergence in today’s culture. Campos-Duffy is a Fox News Contributor and author of “Paloma Wants to Be Lady Freedom.”
Campos-Duffy argued that the greatest weapon to fight the left’s influence in American culture is intentional parenting. As liberalism is promoted subtly in every area of society from reality television to children’s books, she said, parents need to actively teach their children to nullify what they learn from the world.
“The first most important, most powerful influence and teacher in any child’s life is their parent or grandparent,” she said. “And so what I think too many conservatives have done is sort of ceded that to the teachers, to Hollywood stars, to sports stars, and so they just assume their kids are going to through osmosis being in their home or just in the blood they’re going to get it. It doesn’t happen that way… If you’re not talking about socialism with your kids, somebody else is.”
