The person I feature today is a man of many facets. It is impossible to pigeonhole him with a specific label. He is a staunch Conservative, a veteran, an author, a historian, a family man, and a teacher. Through his work on FOXNews, he has taken us to the Holy Land and retraced the steps of Jesus. He has walked the paths of our Patriots as they took on the mighty British army in the hamlets of New England. And he has taken us into the classroom and peeled back the curtain on the Department of Education and teacher’s unions. We recently watched his sadness as his beloved Minnesota Vikings collapsed in the NFL playoffs. For all he has done to enlighten his followers, we shine a spot on this week’s Sunday Spotlight: Pete Hegseth.
Pete is an Army veteran and still an officer in the National Guard. He does much to support the military and veterans of every branch. His admiration and respect for military personnel and first responders are evident when Pete hosts the annual Fox Nation Patriot Awards. Donald Trump also considered Hegseth to head up the Veteran’s Administration. That appointment did not come to fruition, but Pete’s work for veterans’ rights and education may touch more lives. He appears comfortable and confident in his calling.
Pete is one of the weekend hosts of Fox and Friends, a frequent contributor on every other show on Fox, and the producer of several specials on Fox Nation. Pete has gone to the Holy Land to bring two specials from Israel. One was on the origin and never-ending tension and conflict between Israel and Palestine. The more recent documents his trip to retrace the steps Jesus took through the areas around Israel where he was born and died. In a few episodes and with the help of religious and archeological experts, he taught us more about Jesus than we learned in Sunday School. They were amazing and insightful journeys.
Tough to beat religion in importance, but his work on the fall of the American education system with his two series called “The Miseducation of America” gives it a fight. He brings us back to the early days and the influence of Karl Marx on our colleges and universities. He shows us why, and how, indoctrination became the norm and how it has moved from higher education to preschool.
Pete exposes the mission of the teacher’s unions and the harm they are wreaking on our children. He focuses on Randi Weingarten and the power she has attained as president of the American Federation of Teachers Union. He paints a clear picture of how Randi’s agenda has nothing to do with education but with personal power and the control of the future by the Progressive Democrat Party.
Pete has a vested interest in the future of America and our education system due to his rather large family, including seven children. Pete was a lifelong resident of Minnesota but recently relocated to the Nashville area to ensure a better life for those kids.
A television personality, but his life is much deeper, and his focus on a Conservative America is razor-sharp. We need more people in the media like Pete who see wrong and bring it out of the darkness. God Bless you, Pete, and keep fighting the good fight, for all of us.
