‘Why Did They Change Math?’: Megyn Kelly Discusses America’s ‘Thirst’ For ‘Normal’ People

Megyn Kelly spoke Friday on “The Megyn Kelly Show” about how Americans are “hungry” for “normal” people.

Kelly began by explaining how he had to decide whether to stay or leave New York during the “school chaos” that resulted from anti-Israel protests on college campuses across the country. The radio host says guest journalist Bari Weiss and his wife Nellie Bowles ultimately divorce on grounds of “no win” before moving on to a broader conversation about “normal” people. He talked about why he chose .

“Not everyone can go to Hillsdale. It’s not big enough. We need replacements who aren’t crazy and don’t try to indoctrinate us,” Kelly said. “It’s very offensive, isn’t it? Because most of us aren’t like that and we don’t need to indoctrinate them into right-wing thinking. I speak for both of you when I say this. I know there are. Don’t indoctrinate them. Teach them the classics.”

“We just want kids to love it and be able to read, write, know about history and do math,” Weiss said. “The truth is, we don’t want politics at all.”

Kelly praised the school for teaching her son about “the making of a nation,” and said his son learned about the American Revolution and the Founding Fathers. (Related: ‘You took your penis out’: Megyn Kelly furious after former CNN pundit attacks Judge Thomas)

“In science, they study things like the solar system. They do normal things — they have the American Revolutionary War…the 50 states and their capitals,” Kelly said. “They need to know this!”

“We often joke, like, ‘Be normal,’ and yeah, that’s it. It’s really that simple,” Weiss said.

Weiss, editor of The Free Press, told Kelly there was “such a market” for “reality and normalcy” and that many people seemed to have “given up” on it. Told. Bowles added that “people still want” schools to teach students math and history.

“They’re hungry for it,” Kelly said.

“They’re very hungry for it,” Bowles agreed.

“Are they calling ‘2 plus 2 is 5’ indigenous mathematics?” Kelly asked.

Bowles explained that mathematics is “unsettling” for teachers because the normality is “very measurable.”

“Teachers don’t like this and they don’t want their work to be recognized,” Bowles said.

“It’s like Craig T. Nelson’s line in ‘The Incredibles,’ ‘Did they change the math? Why did they change the math?'” Kelly joked.
