The left-wing leaders of public school systems across America are replacing education with indoctrination, conservative author and activist Candace Owens told Fox News Life, Liberty & Levin in an interview airing Sunday.
If you are a Black American and you go through the public school system like I went through, you come out and you are basically a propagandist for the left and you dont realize it, Owens told host Mark Levin.

She is absolutely right about so many things. If we had millions of her in the black community,America would be so much better.
More from the link:
I started on the left, although I was not politically active, she recalled. I believed in all of the indoctrination. I believed, just four short years ago, that Republicans were racist, that conservatives were racists, and that being a Black person and being a woman disadvantaged me in life. And Im a pretty smart person. These were things that I learned actively.
It wasnt because I wanted to be anti-American, Owens added. It wasnt because I wanted to believe these things. It was because it was taught to me via the public school system.
Owens, the author of the recent book Blackout: How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape from the Democratic Plantation went on to warn her fellow conservatives that they have lost the education battle with the left.
I was saying this in the 1990s. Nobody listened. That doesnt apply to OUR schools here in (insert your town) our teachers are Christians, theyd never teach our kids that!
Public schools are, and have been, child abuse. If you have a child in a public school you are abusing you child.
You can disagree but you are wrong.
I agree. I watch Levin, Carlson. Listen to Rush etc.
For all their rants (which I agree and then some), they are singing to an already in the church choir. The congregation is not expanding.
I hope this woman runs for President someday. Almost any President in my memory could have said a variant of that in any given setting, but hearing her say it, in the context is meaningful.
How does it stop.
What can I do to change it?
Complain to friends about this continuously!
There is a difference right now, though.
Candace Owen is not alone in this in the black community, I suspect. I think they are beginning to see who has been keeping them down with one hand and propping them up with the other, for political purposes.
I just recently purchased a DVD called “Uncle Tom”, and it was inspiring.
I think this is different than preaching to the choir here, IMO.
I think, largely, the change has to occur within the black community first, and in a sizable enough way that it can begin to grow. And I think, and I hope, it is happening.
Hopefully many people will watch this and get inspired to become activists.
All you’ll get here is “home school your kids”. Fine, but that doesn’t fix the public school system and obviously not everyone can home school or send their kids to private schools.
So the can get kicked down the road. For all the things conservatives claim to believe, there is damned little actually being done.
Is that the one by Larry Elder?
The starting point is for more conservatives to run for the school board and other local offices. We may just need to win one election at a time.
Sure pray that happens.
Think the people I speak with are tired of me harping on the subject!!
If we continue to allow the Democrat Party to control education, we are guaranteeing them the future because the youth is the future, she stated.If we continue to allow the Democrat Party to control education, we are guaranteeing them the future because the youth is the future, she stated.
The tragic outcome, according to Owens, is a school system that is actually failing kids, especially Black kids.
In California, 75% of Black boys cannot pass a basic literacy exam, she said. That is astounding. You will never hear Black Lives Matter talk about that. You will never hear a Democratic candidate talk about that In Baltimore, across five schools, they couldnt find a single child that was proficient in reading and writing and math People should be talking about that.
That has been my theme for many years. We have several generations now of public school graduates who know no history, don’t read well, have no Civics background, no geography. They are infinitely malleable and will accept whatever the system tells them as they have nothing to measure it against. The republic cannot survive this. We would have to have a long succession of Donald Trumps and we would have to totally remake the education system which is impossible as there is no seed corn left to plant another crop.
Have a son-in-law that attended ENMU in Portales, NM who was an open communist!
Good show tonight. She is solid.
