CNBC anchor Joe Kernen rebels against the liberal brainwashing of his young daughter by the mainstream media and educational establishment.
Every morning on CNBC's top-rated show Squawk Box, Joe Kernen asks tough questions. And at home he does the same with his ten-year- old daughter, Blake. What are you learning in school? What TV shows do you like? What message did you get from that movie? Your teacher said what?!
Blake's unsettling responses-including that no matter how bad things get, ""the government will take care of us""-aren't surprising in an era when Washington takes over car companies, nationalizes banks, and spends a trillion dollars ""stimulating"" the economy. Something had to be done to teach Blake the value of capitalism.
Kernen shows that American culture is now so hostile to free markets that even animated movies are hard to tell from propaganda; grocery stores are billboards for the virtues of preindustrial food; and classrooms do a better job teaching economic misinformation that arithmetic.
To Kernen, this isn't just wrong, it's practically criminal. An unapologetic cheerleader for the free enterprise system, he teaches Blake that it's not only the world's greatest engine for prosperity, but also essential for human freedom. As he tries to raise his children properly, even if he has to teach the basics himself, Kernen will have every conservative parent in America cheering him on.
