10-year-old suspended for brandishing ‘level 2 lookalike firearm’ (aka his fingers)

A 10-year-old Ohio student was suspended for three days last week after he brandished a ‘level 2 lookalike firearm.’ What constitutes a ‘level 2 lookalike firearm,’ you may ask? The student pointed his index finger and thumb like a gun at another student. This ‘violent’ act violated the school’s zero-tolerance gun policy.

“I just want to ask you real quick,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “If I say to you: Somebody in this building has a ‘level two look-alike firearm.’ What do you think that is?”

“I'm thinking it's one of those like my son has, maybe an AR-15-looking… air soft gun,” Pat responded. “[Something that] looks very real.”

“A water pistol, maybe,” Stu added.

While it is unclear how many levels of lookalike firearms exist, Glenn speculated as to why such a harsh term would be used to describe a finger gun.

“Why would they change the name from a finger gun to a level 2 look-alike firearm,” Glenn asked. “It's a finger gun. Stop it! And when your kids come home and they say, ‘Johnny got suspended because he had a class 2 look-alike firearm,’ you get that in and you're like, ‘What the hell is a class 2 look-alike firearm? I'm against that. What the hell is Johnny doing?’”

The school district has refused to back down from its decision to suspend the fifth grader. TheBlaze reports:

Jeff Warner, a spokesman for the district, told the Columbus Dispatch that Devonshire Principal Patricia Price has told students on numerous occasions that they’re not to invoke images of guns when playing and said the students should be aware of the rules.

Warner said warnings have been included in at least three school newsletters sent to parents.

The district spokesman said Nathan put his finger to another students head and pretended to shoot him “execution style.”

“The kids were told, ‘If you don’t stop doing this type of stuff, there would be consequences,’” Warner said. “It’s just been escalating.”

Ultimately, These fancy terms do nothing more than instill fear in a situation that is otherwise harmless.

“You know your hand can't become a firearm, so the description is a lie,” Pat concluded. ”It's just stupid. It's just stupid.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
