The OccupyWallStreet protests have caused Glenn to zero in on what he views as one of the biggest culprits in the progressive agenda – colleges and universities. At the same time that universities raise the cost of education, liberal professors indoctrinate students and turn them, slowly but surely, against the values their parents hold dear. As Woodrow Wilson once said, “The purpose of a university should be to make a son as unlike his father as possible.” But what do you do? That was the question raised on radio this morning.
“If you have kids in college and they're going to come home this Thanksgiving. There's three kinds of kids coming on the Thanksgiving, and future weekends, and Christmas,” Glenn explained on radio.
“There's one, the kid that was raised right, and we are all blessed. We're all blessed with -- if we're lucky we got one of these kids for some reason they connect with the truth, and centered, and it has nothing to do with us. It's been a kid that's been centered their whole life, and they just got it. That kid is coming home. And he's going to say you will not believe what's going on in the universities. It's out of control. It's nuts. Mom, dad they're doing these things, and everything else. You just feed that kid and you just plant their feet, and you get on your knees, and pray with them, and do everything you can to make sure they're recharged before they go back in the lion's den,” Glenn said.
The second kid, Glenn explained, is the one who comes home and thinks they know everything and can’t wait to get out on their own. “Basically, me,” Glenn joked in reference to his past. “They're the ones that are part of the Occupy Wall Street. They're the ones that are lost or on their way to being lost.”
Glenn said that the third one is the one who would say “I just don’t know what to think.”
“This is the child that we need to be worried about. This is the child that is coming back, and they may even strike out at you. But it is a cry for help because they have always loved and respected mom and dad. They have always respected and loved mom and dad. And they've always felt comfortable but they weren't on their own fuel. They were using your fuel and they believe it. But now they're in the throes of discovering it, and gaining a testimony of the things that are true, the country, values, God, they are now in the throes of that,” Glenn said.
“The problem is that they have been sitting in a classroom for three months, three years, whatever it is, and they've been slowly but surely told in a million different ways mom and dad don't know. That's old dated thinking. That's outdated ridiculousness. The world has progressed past that,” Glenn said.
This is exactly what happened to one of radio co-host Pat Gray’s daughters.
“They pretty well indoctrinated her. We felt her on phone conversations sort of slipping away. And going to the other side of virtually every argument that. She was pretty well indoctrinated Obama is really cool and cares about the poor. Fights for the little guy, and I was just stunned,” Pat explained.
So Pat went to work and brought home one of his audio machines and sat his daughter down. He proceed to play clip after clip of Obama and other progressives advocating radical progressive policies in their own words. His daughter was shocked and wondered why her professors never told her that side of the issues.
“It turned her around. It took some time and she thought about it. Over time over a few days after she assimilated the information,” Pat said.
The experience was an inspiration for the video montage below, which shows progressives advocating socialist and Marxist policy in the United States. Glenn played this on radio, and encouraged listeners to share it with their children as these things are not being said in colleges and universities.
