You won’t believe the advice a Nebraska elementary school gave students about bullying

Parents of elementary school students in Nebraska are up in arms after fifth grade students at Zeman Elementary School were sent home with a “flyer” outlining some bizarre best practices for dealing with bullies. Concerned parents have called the worksheet, which outlines nine “rules” on how to handle bullies, “ludicrous,” and the school district has since apologized for disseminating the “inaccurate information.” On radio this morning, Glenn ran through the nine rules and couldn’t help but question “how this could possibly happen” in Nebraska.

Check out the full list of rules and their descriptions below:

Rule #1: Refuse to get mad

“I'm waiting for Pat to comment on that [as] a guy who kind of understands,” Glenn said. “I could go the scripture route, but why not go the Yoda route?”

Pat employed his best Yoda impression to react to that particular rule.

“Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering,” Pat said.

Rule #2: Treat the person who is mean to you as if they are trying to help you

“That's the worst advice I've ever heard,” Glenn said flatly. “That's just stupid.”

Rule #3: Don't be afraid

Glenn actually found himself agreeing with, to some degree, the description offered for Rule #3, which states: “Since the bully wants to keep winning, they will continue to do things that make you feel afraid.”

“I actually kind of agree with the last sentence,” Glenn said.

Rule #4: Do not verbally defend yourself

“Who wrote this,” Glenn asked.

“So you can't [defend yourself] verbally or physically, I think, in this thing,” Pat noted.

Rule #5: Do not attack

Since we now know you should be considering the bully that is abusing a friend not an enemy, you absolutely cannot fight back. After all, as per the flyer, “we attack enemies, not friends.”

Rule #6: If someone physically hurts you, just show you are hurt; do not get angry

“Nothing shuts a bully down more,” Stu joked. “So you just curl up in a ball and cry. I think curling up in a ball is too much because that's protecting yourself. I think maybe you should sit there and sprawl out.”

Rule #7: Do not tell on bullies

Glenn couldn’t help but notice that the advice accompanying Rule #7 actually negates Rule #6.

“Wait. This is great. Listen so this advice. It violates rule number 7. ‘Telling on a bully makes the bully want to retaliate,’” Glenn read. “[But] the one who retaliates is the one who actually started the fight – I learned that in rule Number 5… Who wrote this?”

Rule #8: Don't be a sore loser

Rule #9: Learn to laugh at yourself and not get “hooked” by putdowns

“That's the only decent advice given in the whole thing, if you can pull it off,” Pat noticed. “It might piss them off even more, and they might keep smashing you in the face. But…”

In response to parents’ outrage over the “advice,” Lincoln Public Schools issued an apology on its Facebook page, in which they “apologize for any problems or confusion this has caused for students and families.”

“That's as dumb a worksheet as I've ever seen,” Pat concluded. “Do you want your kids going to this school?”

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
