Casey "the Punisher" speaks

Last week on television, Glenn told the story of Casey “The Punisher”, a viral video star who was caught on tape physically retaliating – and dominating – a bully who had repeatedly hit him. Casey finally opened up about the video and his experiences with bullies, and Glenn gave his reaction to the emotional video on radio this morning.

You can see the original story here.

“[Casey] had just taken enough and beaten up all the time and this little kid was just punching him: Come on, come on, you think that's bad? I'll punch you some more, and just keeps punching him. Finally the kid snaps and he just picks him up and throws him down,” Glenn said of the viral video.

“ I think you can even hear Casey going, don't, don't, don't, don't,” he added.

Everyone agreed that Casey was just defending himself, and Glenn said, “When you're being hit and hit and hit and hit, you know, there comes a time you say enough. “

Pat explained that in the interview he talks about how he was bullied everyday all through elementary school. He gained a few friends, but due to bullying he lost them. So he was being repeatedly bullied without a string support network at school to help him through it.

In the video, Casey’s dad said, “I didn't realize how much trouble he was actually in until I had seen that video. And he said, well, that goes on every day, Dad. And I just, and I thought to myself, you poor little bloat, you know? How many years did you put up with this sort of treatment, you know?”

In the interview, Casey described how he even contemplated suicide, but his older sister helped him through the difficult times.

“I'm not a guy who says throw a punch. I believe turn the other cheek but I will tell you that this atmosphere of bullying comes from an atmosphere of zero consequence. Everybody's parent has an attorney. Everybody's parent says not my kid. Yeah, yeah, you know what? It is your kid,” Glenn said.

“It might be your kid that is the bad kid or the kid that is bullying. And it also might be that your kid is the one that is being picked on.”

“There is right and wrong. And our kids in this society can be sucked into that dark, dark world because nothing else has meaning. We have to watch our kids and prepare them so they can conquer darkness,” Glenn said.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
