SHOCKING: Woman bullied to tears by children on schoolbus

It's probably one of the more shocking and disturbing videos you'll see all year - a bus monitor who is bullied to tears by the very children she is supposed to be chaperoning. It's a sad statement on our culture when children are filled with such bile and hatred that they could do that to another person. When Glenn says he wants to restore America to a simpler time, traditional time - he is ridiculed for wanting to go back to the days of "Jim Crow" or the impossible perfection of "Leave it to Beaver". But the truth is he is speaking of a time where our country still had family values and people weren't so cruel to one another. Because if this is where the left's "progress" has brought America, everyone can agree it's not where the country should be headed.


"I can't even listen to it. I can't even listen to it. They're just, all they're saying to her is you're so fat, you're so ugly, they're poking her. This is a woman, what, 60 years old?" Glenn when he heard just a portion of the audio.

"While things were obviously far from perfect in the 1950s, we have come so far on many fronts, some of them really good, some of them not so positive. We have lost our way as a society," Glenn explained.

"Let's start here. A busload of middle schoolers, these are 12‑ and 13‑year‑old kids. There's no way that they would have been brazen enough, nasty enough, callous enough to continue the onslaught like this against an elderly woman for ten full minutes in the 1950s. Oh, I know there were problems in the 1950s, but look how we have fixed most of those problems and at the same time gone in the opposite direction. Secondly, even if they would have been, the driver would have slammed on the brakes at some point, gotten out of his seat and administered some old‑fashioned ass‑whoopin' with these 12‑year‑old kids. If not the driver, I do believe there would have been at least a student or two among the 30‑plus on board who had the guts and the decency to stop or at least try to stop it," he continued.

"The kids in this video are dead inside. There are a ton of factors that have contributed to this slide. Maybe TV, movies, music, video games that desensitize, lack of the nuclear family unit, both parents now outside the home, no one raising the kids except the government, the schools not being able to have any kind of control, the "not my kid" mentally, the fact that every kid now has an attorney. I don't know what's gone into this toxic mix."

"But let me ask you this: We're coming up on the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling eliminating school prayer. Have things gotten better or worse? Has our scholastic standing worldwide improved or degraded? Are our kids better behaved? Are they happier, or are they more tragic, more prone to suicide, and more, almost completely out of control? Are schools safer or much, much more dangerous than they were? These kids don't even see another human being," he said.

"This poor woman had nowhere to go, nothing she could say. She just said, 'If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.' That's all she said. And she didn't even have one ally on the bus, not one person. Not one of these kids had the courage of their conviction to say, 'What is that?' We don't think that there is anybody on the bus who had any conviction. Nobody felt badly about it. No remorse. No mercy."

Glenn said that these kids have gotten to the point where they don't even see other people as people. They can't look beyond themselves, and compared that mindset to Americans who turned a blind eye when the Japanese were sent to camps during World War 2 or the Germans sent the Jews to concentration camps. This, Glenn said, is how those kinds of atrocities start to happen - when people stop having empathy and kindness and instead are filled with selfishness and hatred.

"How much happens in our kids' lives that is a completely different culture? Our kids are schizophrenic. Our kids live in one culture and then they come home and they live in another culture. And you endorse their culture at school every time you turn on the TV. Because you're watching it and you think, 'This is crazy. Well, my kids know better.' No, they don't. That's the culture they're immersed in all day long. You're endorsing that culture."

"So what do we do? How do we prepare our kids that when they see something like this happening, they make sure they have the integrity, the humanity to do their best to stop it? Love them, be with them, meet with them weekly, one on one. Pray with them. They can't do that at school. Make sure prayer is a part of their lives at home. Read the scriptures together. Feed their spirits. It's as important, if not more important, than feeding their body. Feed their spirit and their body. Play with them. Do service for others with them. Regulate their gaming time."

"We have to accept the responsibility for our own children. We have to correct the misconceptions that they have," he said.

Regardless of where these kids learned this behavior, parents have to take responsibility and teach them that there are consequences to their actions. Parents have to make sure their kids are loved and that they have a strong sense of values.

"Maybe then we can return to the decency of Mayberry without the ugliness of 'To Kill a Mockingbird'."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

RESTORING HOPE: Join Glenn live from Standing Rock Ranch to restore the American covenant

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
