Journalist Megyn Kelly has made the decision to quit New York City and take her children out of their ‘far-left’ schools as they ‘gave gone off the deep end’ following the death of George Floyd.
Kelly revealed she snapped after a letter was sent around to faculty in her sons’ school that claimed ‘white school districts across the country [are] full of future killer cops’.
It added that ‘white kids are being indoctrinated in black death’ and are ‘left unchecked and unbothered in their schools’.
Her sons Edward, 11, and Thatcher Bray, 7, attended the Collegiate School on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
The piece, written by Orleans Public Education Network Executive Director Nahliah Webber, was circulated among a parents’ ‘diversity group’ at her son’s school, which included Kelly, following the police-involved shooting of Floyd.
On Monday, Kelly told her podcast ‘The Megyn Kelly Show’ that she had already pulled her two sons from the $55,900-a-year private school as she accused the city of allowing ‘woke’ leftism to take over.
The former Fox and NBC host, who turned 50 this week, claimed she also planned to move her nine-year-old daughter, Yardley Evans, from her city school as the family looks to relocate away from the hyper-liberal Big Apple.

‘After years of resisting it, we’re going to leave the city. We pulled our boys from their school, and our daughter is going to be leaving hers soon, too,’ Kelly said of her and her husband Doug Brunt’s decision.
It is unclear where Kelly and her family plans to move to once they leave New York City.
Collegiate School is ranked as one of the best private schools in the country and also claims to be the oldest.
It counts JFK Jr., his nephew Jack Schlossberg, and Game of Thrones co-creator David Benioff among its alumni.
Roman Abramovich and CNBC broadcaster Andrew Ross Sorkin are among those who sent their children there.
‘The schools have always been far-left, which doesn’t align with my own ideology, but I didn’t really care, most of my friends are liberals, it’s fine. I come from a Democrat family, I’m not offended at all by the ideology, and I lean center-left on some things, Kelly admitted.
‘But they’ve gone around the bend,’ she continued. ‘I mean, they have gone off the deep end.’
A DailyMail.com request for comment from the school on the issue has not yet been returned.

Kelly, who lost her multi-million-dollar contract with NBC last year following comments about blackface at Halloween, said that it was the letter circulated by the diversity group at the school that pushed her over the edge.
The diversity group, as described by Kelly, is made up of parents including white ‘allies’ who work to ‘stay attuned to what we can do’.
‘The summer in the wake of George Floyd, they circulated amongst the diversity group — which includes white parents like us; there are people who want to be allies and stay attuned to what we can do — an article, and afterward, they recirculated it and wanted every member of the faculty to read it,’ Kelly claimed
She said that the letter asserted that white children are inherently racist, that ‘there is a killer cop sitting in every school where white children learn’ and that ‘white school districts across the country [are] full of future killer cops.’
It adds that white people enjoyed their ‘state-sanctioned depravity’ as black people are killed.

The piece, written Nahliah Webber, continued: ‘They gleefully soak in their whitewashed history that downplays the holocaust of indigenous native peoples and Africans in the Americas.
‘They happily believe their all-white spaces exist as a matter of personal effort and willingly use violence against black bodies to keep those spaces white.’
‘As black bodies drop like flies around us by violence at white hands, how can we in any of our minds conclude that whites are all right?’ the article added.
‘White children are left unchecked and unbothered in their schools, homes, and communities to join, advance, and protect systems that take away black life.
‘I am tired of white people reveling in their state-sanctioned depravity, snuffing out black life with no consequences.’
‘Where’s the urgency for school reform for white kids being indoctrinated in black death and protected from the consequences?’ Webber also asked.
‘Where are the government-sponsored reports looking into how White mothers are raising culturally deprived children who think Black death is okay?’

Kelly took issue with the claim that there are ‘killer cops’ in the school where her children are taught, hitting out at the school for allowing it to be distributed.
‘Which boy in my kid’s school is the future killer cop?’ the independent journalist asked.
Kelly launched her podcast in September
‘Is it my boy? Which boy is it? Because I don’t happen to believe that they’re in there.’
Kelly was joined on the show by writer Coleman Hughes and economist Glenn Loury – both black men.
‘Gosh, that’s shocking,’ Loury said when Kelly finished reading the letter. ‘It’s racist, that’s straightforwardly racist.’
‘Killer cops are white? Think of flipping the script on that, think if you imbued anything of that sort to black people based upon our race, that would be horrific. It is indeed racist.’
‘Do you, if you’re a person interested in the welfare of black people, want to invite a close scrutiny of the race of people who hurt other people in this country because if you do, you’ll find that blacks attacks on whites – sorry whites attacks on blacks are outnumbered by an order of magnitude by blacks attacks on whites,’ Loury claimed.
‘I don’t have statistics in front of me but I’m fairly confident that that’s true so why are we racializing this.’
Kelly’s decision came just a few weeks after she spoke about her delight for her three children to be returning to in-person learning for the new academic year.
She emphasized that she believed that schools should remain opening despite the coronavirus pandemic in an interview with People magazine.
‘My boys went back to school in September and my daughter just went back to school this week. And it’s glorious. I’m so thankful,’ Kelly said.
‘I feel really strongly that the schools need to be back opened. Not just mine — mine are open now, so I don’t need to advocate for my kids. But what is healthy for the children is for them to be in school.
‘You send them to kindergarten so they can go and be with their little buddies and learn the first buds of socialization, and how to handle conflict and how to share,’ she said of her daughter finishing last year remotely.
‘You’re not really sending them there to learn that red is red, and this is black. You can teach them that in an afternoon.
‘So, I have to say kindergarten via remote, which we did last year during the spring, is a bummer,’ the podcast host added.
‘That is not the way it was meant to be.’

This not the first time that Kelly has hit out at NYC in recent months.
Following the last October presidential debate in which Donald Trump claimed that ‘NY is a ghost town’, the host agreed with him, tweeting ‘depressing & sad, but true’.
Kelly launched her podcast two months ago as part of her new network Devil May Care Media.
On its September release, she promised that there would be ‘no safe spaces’ here.
‘There will be spaces that challenge you, make you think, help you understand, stimulate your intellect and help build resiliency,’ she said in a statement to the Hill.
‘The vast majority of Americans are tougher than people think — they can handle sharp, compelling discussions about tough issues.’
‘No B.S. No agenda. No corporate overlords. Should be fun!’ Kelly also tweeted of the show.
It currently stands third in Apple’s news commentary rankings after officially launching in September.
