Bus bullying latest example of decline in culture: "Bad seeds will bear bad fruit"

Tonight on GBTV, Glenn revisited a story that has grown from YouTube video on TheBlaze to a viral news story that has been picked up by most national networks. But while many in the mainstream media are focusing on the victim, bus monitor Karen Klein, Glenn wanted to focus on the children and the culture that has led to them being full of bile and hatred towards another human being.

In the video, the children verbally abuse Klein, mocking her weight, her clothing, and her income. They even threaten to stab here. It's a horrifying video, and Glenn was disgusted that something like that could happen. But he saw it as symptomatic of a larger issue - we as a country no longer care or empathize with others. While it's easy to write this off as just a bunch of teenagers being particularly, Glenn said that if this is happening across the country it's still "not OK". He said that it reflects a decline in values, and writing this off as normal behavior that is being exposed simply because we now have YouTube doesn't justify the behavior.

Furthermore, Glenn discussed several news stories that show that this kind of disconnect from people isn't confined to just kids. Take, for example, someone who wrote into Time Magazine: "Besides, this health-care debate isn't about those over 30; it's about the millions of uninsured, recently graduated young people saddled with loans we can't imagine paying off, who are sick and tired of living in an abyss created by our elders' stupidity. Obama would be smart to focus on college towns. Step aside, Grandma. We want health care, and we want it now."

Or the former Obama advisor Robert Reich who said, "We are going to have to, if you are very old, we're not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you, maybe, going for another couple of months. It's too expensive. So, we're going to let you die."

Are we at risk of just focusing on ourselves and ignoring and abusing those who cannot help themselves?

"The seeds have been planted. We're already going down this road," Glenn said.

Glenn said we need to start asking ourselves the hard questions, such as the below:

1) What can we do differently?

2) What's the punishment?

3) Where are the parents?

4) How many of us have kids like this and have no clue?

"One of our biggest problems today is that parents have abdicated their responsibilities," Glenn said. "While we're out working and trying to have it all - fancy houses, cars, boats, vacations - we're handing off our parenting duties to someone else: teachers and schools. To peers. To babysitters/daycare. To TV."

"That's not to say you can't have two working parents and have good kids. You can. You just have to be engaged. And too many are not. And we live in a culture that mocks homeschooling and being a stay at home mom."

"Kids are being taught that they are their ultimate authority. Not their parents. And certainly not that imaginary friend in the sky. And there's no shame in anything you do. It's just your choice."

But what do you do?

Glenn asked viewers to look to the story of Abraham Lincoln. His mother died young and his dad was abusive. It wasn't until his step-mother taught him to read that things started to turn around, but even then he faced hardship including the death of several of his children and grandchildren. And he lost many battles in war - all causing in faith to flounder.

But in his second inaugural address he made a covenant with God and recognized that you must surrender yourself to Him.

He said: Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said 'The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.'

"That's the message," Glenn said. "We may lose our wealth, houses, jobs - I don't know what that price is - only He does. Every day we add more hatred, more anger, more rage, more kids bullying bus monitors, idol worship- the more days we do this, the higher the price the higher the cost."

Glenn said we need humbleness, kindness, and, of course, we need to teach love.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
