Stunning twist in story of 7th grader suspended for playing with airsoft gun at home

On Tuesday, Glenn talked about a ridiculous story out of Virginia Beach, Virginia involving 12-year-old Khalid Caraballo and two of his friends, who were suspended from school after playing with airsoft guns at Caraballo’s house. The story got a whole lot more stunning yesterday, when a disciplinary committee in the district unanimously voted to hand down long-term suspensions to the students.

TheBlaze reports:

Khalid Caraballo, Aidan Clark and a third student will reportedly be suspended until June, or the entire school year. However, the committee voted to hold the suspension in “abeyance” to allow the students to attend an alternative education program during the suspension.

A hearing will be held on January 27 to determine if the students will be permitted to return to school sooner than that.

“Here's the deal: The school board last night voted 100%, not one dissension on the school board, not one. Not one dissenting vote. Not one,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This is Virginia Beach, Virginia. Now, I don't know about you, Virginia Beach, but I'd get into my car and I would go to the next school board meeting and I would bring everybody in my church and everybody in my 9/12 group and everybody I know and say enough is enough. I mean it really is time to decide. It's going to get worse and worse and worse. And they are teaching you a lesson right now. They're teaching you, be quiet.”

“You just can't tolerate that,” Pat added.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Virginia Beach Public School Board Chairman Daniel Edwards defended the decision of the committee and said witnesses claim the boys were shooting other students in the street. Larkspur Middle School principal Matthew Delaney says there was a student only 10 feet from the bus stop fleeing from “from the shots being fired, but was still hit.”

According to TheBlaze, Delaney’s statement is suspect given that the Caraballos’ property, where the boys were playing is 70 yards from the bus stop and a 911 call supports Khalid’s claim that he never left his property.

“I think it was National Review had a good column today on this story and kind of won me over a little bit in that, like, everyone's talking about this as a gun thing,” Stu said. “It's really more of that Melissa Harris‑Perry ‘Your children don't belong to you’ thing. Sure, we are all freaking out about the Second Amendment, but you go beyond that. This is people in their own yards.”

"Excuse me. Get the hell out of my yard. I mean, look at what they're doing with Common Core. You think you have control of your kids? You don't even have a right to know what they're teaching. You don't even have a right to question what they're teaching. You don't have a right to stand up and say, ‘They're going to teach your kids and they are going to teach what they believe.’ That's just the way it is. This is wrong, guys,” Glenn said. “And if you let it go through, you get what you deserve. Don't let them continue to go down this path. Everybody needs to show up at that school board… You need 1,000 people to march in and just say, ‘We demand justice’ because this is none of your business. This is insane. And everybody here knows it. All of the school board? Not one dissension? Not one? It's crazy. But that's what you get when you have a press that is so compliant.”

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
