Fox Business anchor dishes ‘upside down hot take’ on parental rights bill, says ‘what they should have done’

In what many conservatives view as a move toward long-overdue accountability for the left-wing activists who have used the nation’s schools to indoctrinate impressionable young minds with racist, anti-white ideology, misleading representations of U.S. history, and sexually degenerate filth, the GOP-led House passed a historic parental rights bill, leading one Fox Business anchor to voice her opposition to the legislation.

On Friday, House Republicans passed the Parents Bill of Rights Act by a vote of 213-208 after five GOP lawmakers sided with Democrats who were once again in lockstep unity over an effort to roll back their extremist agenda and as several leftists engaged in their typical grandstanding antics with the clown parade led by shrill diva Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who likened the bill to fascism. And her fellow New Yorker, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries brazenly lied that Republicans didn’t want children to learn about the Holocaust.

Reacting to the victory in the raging culture war that until recently has been one-sided, Dagen McDowell joined the crew on Friday afternoon’s edition of “Outnumbered” where she served up her “completely upside down hot take” as to why she disagrees with the bill, which she sees as federal overreach on issues that should be under the purview of the states.

After agreeing with host Kayleigh McEnany that Jeffries’ “malicious, egregious, outrageous lie” was way over the line, McDowell noted that she shared a birthplace with Founding Father Patrick Henry’s last home and place of burial as the basis for her counterargument.

“He had a deep-seated fear of giving too much power to the federal government and it’s because of him we have a Bill of Rights,” she said. “I’m not a big believer in giving more federal power and putting more federal power over education.”

“Education is primarily a state and local responsibility and the states are taking it into their hands, handing, you know, giving parents power and parental bills of rights are in play if not in place in twenty-six states already.”

“I’m not in favor of this, but what the Republicans actually should have done is taken all this caterwauling from the left and said, you know what, you’re right,” McDowell added. “We shouldn’t have the federal government in the role of education and telling you know, telling parents what to do. We should get rid of the Department of Education and we should send it all back to the states and the localities.”

“That’s what they should have done,” she said.

Republican Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy hailed the bill’s passage after Friday’s vote, “Today was a win for every mother, every father, but most importantly, for every student in America. You have a Parents Bill of Rights now.”

“Obviously House Democrats are lashing out because they know they are on the losing side of this awakening of parents across the country. House Republicans are ensuring that parents are the primary stakeholders in their children’s future with the passage of the Parents Bill of Rights, while the Far Left continues to advocate for radical CRT and woke indoctrination,” Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) told The New York Post.

The five Republicans who opposed the bill were Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado, Rep. Matt Rosendale of Montana, Rep. Mike Lawler of New York and Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, each for their own reasons.
