Texas student with special needs tormented with threatening text messages by classmates

On radio this morning, Glenn reacted passionately to a disturbing story out of Plano, Texas involving a special needs student being tormented with threatening text messages by her classmates.

“The guy I was walking to work with [this morning] was giving me a briefing on some of the different stories in the news. He said, then there's the story out of Plano, Texas, and I said, what story out of Plano, Texas,” Glenn explained on radio this morning. “A special needs high school student from Plano, Texas, has been subjected to vicious bullying, receiving a barrage of offensive text messages from strangers poking fun at her, threatening to rape and kill her.”

According to KDFW:

Shea Shawhan, 18, was born with a brain injury that has left her with the mental capacity of an 8-year-old. She can understand the text messages and it's really breaking her mother's heart. The mean and hurtful text messages have sparked a police investigation.

"Why are you still here? Clearly no one wants you. You only have special needs friends and you're ugly and have terrible fashion sense. Honestly your clothes suck," read some of the offensive text messages. "People at West don't want her, that's the reason she has seizures because that's karma," another text to Shea read.

"When they referenced her seizures and said I hope you have a seizure and die, are you kidding me? How could you be so evil and cold," said Keri Riddell, Shea's mother.

“If I were in West High School in Plano and I heard this today - if my children were there, if my children had a phone, I'd be going through their phone. In fact, I'd probably take their damn phone away. I want to make sure that you're never part of that, and if I ever find out that you are, your life is going to be a living hell with me for quite some time,” Glenn said angrily. “I'm going to call Plano West High School today. I'm going to ask them if they would allow me to do a school assembly because I have a few things to say to those kids. I have a few things to show those kids. I have a few history lessons I'd like to give those kids. I'll show you what this leads to. Really? We're going to start making fun of the handicapped now, are we? That's what we're going to do? We're going to start devaluing them? We're going to start making them not really into people, just obstruction to us? I'll report tomorrow on whether Plano West High School will allow me to come in and talk to the kids, have a school assembly.”

KDFW has since reported that Shea was able to attend her school’s homecoming, and students arrived at the event wearing t-shirts with messages like “I’ve got Shea’s back” and “I’m with Shea.”

While it is encouraging to see some students were courageous enough to stand up and do the right thing, but, as Glenn explained, such situations are becoming all too common because technology has made it possible for people to cower behind the shield of their virtual lives.

“I believe we can find the solution, but it requires us to think in totally different ways," Glenn said. "We've got to change everything. We have to take everything out of us. We have to look at everything: What is it that I believe? What is it that's true? What am I doing? What are my children doing?"

“I was working on a major project last night that I really want to do with Ray Kurzweil, of all people. I really want to put something together that will open people's minds and show them what's just over the horizon. Our brightest days and our worst nightmares are just over the horizon. I'll show you what can be good and bad, really bring it to life, show people because we've got to wake up,” Glenn continued. “How many friends do you have on Facebook? Answer the question. How many friends do you have on Facebook? Do you know the number? Last time I asked that question in a crowd, I said, ‘I don't even know how many friends I have on Facebook.’ And somebody opened up their device and looked and said – I don't even know what it was – 1.8, 2 million, whatever it is. I said, ‘No, it's not.  I have zero friends on Facebook, zero. Zero.’”

“How many friends do I really have,” Glenn asked. “I know I have one. He's sitting in the studio with me, and the reason why I can count him as my friend is because he was there with me in my darkest days. So I know I have one. How many friends do you really have?”

Roger Stone is kind of a scumbag but the outrage over his commutation by President Trump has gone off the rails. Thus far in his presidency, Trump has commuted the sentence for 11 individuals while in comparison, Bill Clinton had 61. Even worse, Barack Obama commuted the sentence of 1,715 criminals! Just by the numbers, the outrage is insane. But then add in that both Obama and Clinton commuted or pardoned the sentence of terrorists and/or "friends" of the the president and the double standard is outrageous.

Here is a list of just a few of the worst offenders:

Bill Clinton Pardons/Commuted sentences

Terrorists

  • Commuted the sentences of 16 members of the FALN, a Puerto Rican paramilitary organization that set off 120 bombs in the United States, mostly in New York City and Chicago. There were convictions for conspiracy to commit robbery, bomb-making, and sedition, as well as firearms and explosives violations.
  • Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg were both commuted and both were members of Weather Underground and the May 19 Communist Movement, and were convicted on weapons and explosives charges.

Case similar to Trump/Roger Stone

  • Susan McDougal was sentenced to 18 months in prison on contempt charges for refusing to testify about Clinton in the Whitewater scandal only to have Clinton pardoned her.

Pardons/commutations that look like a response to bribes

  • Carlos Vignali was convicted for cocaine trafficking. Almon Glenn Braswell was convicted for mail fraud and perjury, and was under investigation for money laundering and tax evasion. Vignali was commuted while Braswell was pardoned, but they were also both caught paying approximately $200,000 to Hillary Clinton's brother, Hugh Rodham, to represent their respective cases for clemency.
  • Marc Rich fled the U.S. after he was caught owing $48 million in taxes and was charged with 51 counts for tax fraud. Everyone was surprised when Clinton pardoned him. It was later revealed that Rich's wife made substantial donations to both the Clinton library and to Hillary Clinton's senate campaign.

Pardon for a member of Clinton's family

  • Clinton pardoned his brother, Roger Clinton, who had been convicted on drug charges. A year after the pardon he would be charged for Drunk driving and disorderly conduct.

Drug Cartel lawyer

  • Clinton commuted the sentence for Harvey Weinig, a former NY lawyer who was sentenced in 1996 to 11 years in prison for facilitating an extortion-kidnapping scheme and helping launder at least $19 million for the Cali cocaine cartel.

Obama Pardons/Commuted sentences - the most since Truman: Obama granted clemency to nearly 2,000 individuals, including 212 pardons and 1,715 commutations.

Terrorist

  • Obama commuted the sentence of another FALN terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera.

Traitors

  • Chelsea Manning: the former Army Intelligence analyst was convicted of leaking documents that revealed classified information on military and diplomatic activities all around the world only to have her sentence commuted.

Case similar to Micheal Flynn or Roger Stone

  • Obama pardoned General James Cartwright, who had been convicted for lying to the FBI (sound familiar?!). Cartwright was considered "Obama's favorite general".

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck goes where the Left and the media don't want us to go. The protests, riots, pandemic — it's all one big distraction being weaponized to shield the Deep State from the big reveal.

The case against General Michael Flynn is bigger than a phone call with the Russian ambassador; it exposes everything. Glenn reveals multiple cogs in the Deep State wheel that tried to destroy Donald Trump's presidency.

This story has everything: secret meetings, spies, glamorous European locations. Glenn puts all of the pieces together and interviews the man who was an eyewitness to all of it — former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos. Specifically targeted by this Deep State coup, his reputation and life may never be the same. He reveals the names of those he believes were behind his setup and the coup against the president.

The Washington Post wants Native Americans to hate the name "Washington Redskins" so badly that that it is willing to mock its own study that proved otherwise.

On the radio program Tuesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn Beck) discussed the "woke insanity" of the WaPo's most recent poll, which, like its 2016 counterpart, found that the vast majority of Native Americans are not offended by the NFL team's name.

As the left tries to erase America's history and disparage nearly everything about our nation's founding, Glenn Beck set the record straight about the Declaration of Independence, what it really says, and why he believes it is the "greatest mission statement of all time."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn read something you've probably never heard before: a section of the earliest known draft of the Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson in July 1776 and lost for more than a century and a half.

"This wasn't found until 1947; the original draft of the Declaration was found in a bunch of Thomas Jefferson's writings, in a box in the Library of Congress," Glenn said. "This takes everything that you have learned about Thomas Jefferson and turns it upside down. It also explains why we didn't eliminate slavery. It also explains that our Founders felt passionately about slavery, that they tried to end slavery. I want to read just this paragraph to you. This changes absolutely everything."
