Clueless Teens hit Google, ask: "Who is Osama Bin Laden?"

Are teens so out of touch with our country and the War on Terror that they don’t know who UBL was? Apparently, as “Who is Osama Bin Laden” was one of the most popular tweets and searches over the past few days.

Glenn explained, “I said to you on Monday one of the things that bothered me was the fact that we had these teenagers and these college students. Now, how many of these college students, I contended on Monday, really even knew what was going on? Because their life hadn't really been affected. 9/11, we all paid attention. But remember, we sheltered our children from it. I tried to do as much as we could for our children, and maybe this was a mistake, to keep this away from them. Not show it.”

Glenn read form Twitter, “Who is Osama Bin Laden and why should I care? Who is Osama Bin Laden? Is he famous? Am I the only one who doesn't know who he is?”

“Talia writes, I'm probably retarded for asking this, but who is Osama and why is it good that he died? Cory writes, who is Osama and why is it important we killed him? Shawn wrote on Twitter on Sunday night, who is Osama Bin Laden? Is he in the band as well? Who is Osama Bin Laden? Who is Osama Bin Laden? Someone explain this to me, please. You know, just goes on and on and on,” Glenn said. (Click here to read more tweets)

The number five search on Sunday was “Who is Osama Bin Laden?”. And because Google can track everything, I mean, they know what you're wearing right now and they called me and they said, today it works. But here's what here's what they found out. The most of the people who were doing the searching and seeking more information made up 66% of the searches for who is Osama Bin Laden, 66% of them were 13 to 17 years old.”

“I remind you of the words of Al Gore: There are things that you know that your parents just don't know. I remind you of the words of Van Jones. You know, your parents just don't know the things that you know,” Glenn said.

“I used to feel like I knew everything, too, when I was a teenager. That's normal. But you're being used. And they are using you because there are things that you don't know that they do. Look up useful idiot. I know that sounds like an insult. It's an actual term. Look up useful idiot. You're being used as one. Find out where that term came from. Do that in a search engine now,” Glenn said.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
