GRIFF JENKINS (CORRESPONDENT/CO-HOST): Here's the deal, John. I've got a 13-year-old daughter in eighth grade. My question is, if they're teaching ethnic studies and they're trying to make it mandatory in the case of California and perhaps elsewhere, they're not teaching studies. They're making social justice warriors out of children. How worried should parents be? 

JOHN MURAWSKI (REALCLEARINVESTIGATIONS): Well, if -- if they find this upsetting, I guess they'd be worried. But if they open up ethnic studies to all students, not just students who are already advocates, and you bring in all kinds of students, you're going to open these classrooms to a whole wide range of opinions, including kids who are in disagreement. It actually might make it more democratic.

JEDEDIAH BILA (CO-HOST): Yeah, the sad thing, John, is this is not new. This has been going on. There's been a fierce anti-American sentiment on campuses for a very long time. What is new is that it's being disclosed, so I'm appreciative that these studies on what's going on in these classrooms is coming front and center so people at least have an awareness and parents can get more involved if they need to.
