Newt decries “the dumbing down of America” and “left-wing indoctrination” in our schools

Appearing with Laura Ingraham on Fox News, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich decried what he called “the dumbing down of America” and “seeing left-wing indoctrination””

Newt Gingrich:

I think what you’re seeing is the dumbing down of America for three generations, you’re seeing left-wing indoctrination and literally groupthink. I do a podcast, and I talk about shut your mouth.

There’s an entire series on where the left has told us, say what they want or else. I really think the time has come to take back the schools and to take back the universities. And I think that a lot of governors, frankly, aren’t doing their job when they allow public universities to be run by people who are radically anti-American.

So, this is a very dangerous moment in our history. We are not going to compete with China if we insist on having schools where the unions won’t teach and what they teach isn’t true.
