Christine Rosen joined host Ben Domenech to analyze the reasons for recent protests and the chaotic aftermath, including defacing statues in an attempt to eliminate aspects of American history. Rosen is a senior writer at “Commentary Magazine.”
Rosen argued that public schools have failed to teach history to students but instead have given them a warped view of the American founding, the product of which manifested itself in the recent destruction of historical statues. Schools are to blame, she said, for how little context young people have in understanding historical events.
