Our children are in danger: Mother leaves high school assembly featuring profanities and sex toys ‘shocked’ and ‘in tears’

If Glenn had opened this morning’s radio program with the following ‘joke,’ would there have been serious repercussions?

A teacher, a lawyer, and a priest get on a plane. The plane is going down and the teacher says, ‘We have to save the children.’ The attorney says, ‘F*** the children. And the priest says, “Oh, do we have time for that?’

Without a shadow of a doubt, that ‘joke’ would have – rightfully so – been deemed inappropriate. Well, that joke was one of several profanity-laced, offensive jokes uttered during a recent high school awards ceremony in Washington that caused one concerned mother to leave in tears.

TheBlaze reports:

A Washington state parent is speaking out after she was left stunned by a school awards ceremony that she said featured profanity, inappropriate jokes and a box of sex toys.

The parent, who sent an email to KOMO-TV, but wished to remain anonymous, said she was left in tears by what she witnessed when she accompanied her 17-year-old daughter to the event put on by Bellingham High School drama teacher Teri Grimes.

“I sat there with my mouth open in shock and the final straw was when a joke was told on stage about a teacher, a lawyer and a priest on a plane,” the unidentified parent wrote to KOMO. “The plane was going down and the teacher says we have to save the children. The attorney says ‘F*** the children!’ and the priest says ‘OOOOH..Do we have time for that???’”

That’s when the parent says she left.

On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the bizarre assembly and questioned what we are allowing to happen in our schools. As Glenn explained, our children “are in danger.”

In the email to KOMO, the unidentified parent explained the program included several instances of vulgar language. Furthermore, the high school students were given awards like “the horniest stud,” which featured a box of sex toys as the prize.

What is going on in our schools,” Glenn asked exasperatedly. “You don't have to be conservative to think that this is inappropriate in school.”

On Tuesday, Grimes, the veteran drama club teacher who oversaw the event, issued an apology that the concerned parent has apparently accepted.

“I deeply apologize for some very inappropriate comments and actions made during our drama students’ end-of-the-year awards ceremony,” she wrote. “This is not representative of our students who take such great pride in their school and respect one another.”

“Much of the evening was a great celebration of their work,” she continued. “However, as a teacher and the club’s leader, I take full responsibility and am extremely sorry.”

In the past, as Glenn explained, he would cover stories like this and throw out the idea of homeschooling as an alternative. Needless to say, homeschooling requires a huge commitment, and while it might not be for everyone, Glenn believes it is time to start figuring out a way to make it available to as many children as possible.

“Whenever stuff like this used to come up, ‘homeschooling’ came out of my mouth. And homeschooling isn't for everybody,” Glenn said. “Except, at this point, when this is happening widespread all across the country in towns like Bellingham, Washington… with everything that's happening with Common Core and everything else, let me tell you something: It is time that homeschooling is for everybody. Some variation is for everyone. Our kids are in danger."

Here's more on this story from Thursday's Daily Briefing:

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
