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.”

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.

2021 was a turning point for public education in America. Remote learning revealed to parents what public schools were force-feeding their kids — everything from critical race theory to the existence of infinite genders — while performance in subjects like math and reading fell across the board.

Now, school boards and teachers' unions are facing a tidal wave of parents who want to take the reins back. But school wasn’t always like this. Glenn Beck takes us back to a time before the Department of Education and asks the question: “Are our schools getting better or worse?”

American Federation for Children senior fellow Corey DeAngelis joins to expose who’s actually benefitting from our public school system — and it’s not our kids. And former Secretary of Education under President Trump Betsy DeVos explains why it’s time to abolish the department she once headed, what stopped her from doing so, and how parents can make a big difference.

The Associated Press has issued a dire warning for abortion providers ahead of the Supreme Court's decision on Roe v. Wade.

According to an article titled "'Heightened alert’: Abortion providers brace for ruling," abortion clinics nationwide are expecting an increase in "protests, harassment, and other violence ... in states where abortion remains legal" if Roe v. Wade is overturned — as a draft opinion leaked in May suggested is likely to happen.

"On the night of last winter’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in a case that could end the nationwide right to abortion, people gathered outside a clinic in New Jersey with lawn chairs, a cooler and a flaming torch — a sight that brought to mind lynchings and other horrors of the country’s racist past," the AP article began.

The article did go on to cite two incidents of extreme anti-abortion violence — "the 1993 killing of Dr. David Gunn outside a Florida abortion clinic [and] the 2015 fatal shooting of three people inside a Colorado Planned Parenthood." But there was almost no mention of the ongoing attacks on pregnancy crisis centers by pro-choice activists, including the violent group that calls itself "Jane’s Revenge."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck noted that the closest the current administration has come to calling out Jane’s Revenge was when the Department of Homeland Security published a terror advisory warning of crime on both sides of the Roe v. Wade debate earlier this month. But when was the last time you heard about violent attacks on pro-life centers in the corporate media? There have been several instances of violence by pro-choice proponents, and the Biden administration remains silent.

GLENN: Now the righteous generation of the woke has reached such a level of holiness that it cannot possibly be contaminated by name of a less righteous monster like George Washington. Student insists the university must break its ties with white supremacy and systematic racism by canceling its 200 year old name and renaming it. Are you ready? Malcolm X University.
