WATCH: Newsmax Host Has Meltdown, Accuses Nickelodeon of Transgender Indoctrination
Like its competitor Fox News, Newsmax is fully focused on fighting the culture war. Rather than talking about political topics, the network often focuses on subjects that will make right-leaning people angry.
And to ramp up the anger, Newsmax often invokes children into their arguments. This was the case during a Grant Stinchfield segment on Tuesday morning. The host ripped into Nickelodeon, accusing the television network of indoctrinating children to transgender people.
Stinchfield’s guest was Isabella Riley, who works for Prager University and Turning Point USA. The host aired a clip of Nickelodeon’s celebration of Pride month and remarked, “It seems like Nickelodeon has gone off the deep end. I don’t understand what it is with — not that I have anything against gay people, whatever it may be, but their transgender indoctrination of kids is just out of left field.”
Riley jumped in, “Something that really bothers me, is, I don’t hate — like you said — I don’t have a problem with gay people. I don’t care about transgender people. My problem is that you’re shoving it down everyone’s throats, and I reject any pride month that is just celebrating identity politics.”

The guest continued, “This is creepy and makes me never want to have kids because I don’t want to bring them into a world where this is being pushed on them, and it’s scary, including critical race theory in public schools.”
