“Look at what’s coming home in their homework. Look at what they’re talking about with their friends and what they’re doing on social media and where they’re getting it from. And intervene now as a parent or grandparent,” said Fox News host Pete Hegseth during a fresh and fascinating conversation with James and Betty Robison.

Hegseth is the author of the new book Battle for the American Mind: Uprooting a Century of Miseducation, which details a century-long agenda to get God out of our schools and teach our kids conformity instead of critical thinking.

“Not only is God gone from the classroom, it’s openly hostile to any ideas of faith whatsoever — condescending to it,” said Hegseth. “And if you look at the people that originally pulled God out, they were atheists. This was not an accidental thing. They knew for their utopian humanistic schemes to work, they had to pull God out.”

Hegseth was clear that “this book is an action book. Yes we want you to read it and we want you to understand the depth of the problem and the history behind it. That’ll probably rattle your cage. And we want to. But more importantly, I want everyone to self-examine what they can do to put those principles to work in their lives right now with their kids and grandkids.”
