Oliver North, Chick-fil-A’s Dan Cathy and former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue.
Caner tells “Wake Up Memphis” with Robyn Walensky that his show will delve into a wide range of topics including politics religion and education in America.“Much of this generation is either a-political or politically left,” Caner tells Walensky. “The good news in all of that is the younger generation, the 18-year-old and younger folks they seem to be moving toward a more conservative populism.”
Caner said he also plans to call out institutions of higher learning that claim to promote diversity.“When they scream diversity, they certainly don’t scream diversity of thought,” he said. “People are just finally seeing it play out in real life, there’s an old saying, don’t be surprised when you take your kids to see Karl Marx that they become socialists.”
Dr. Caner and his wife have three children. Click here for his personal website.
