Efforts by public schools to be ‘gender inclusive’ have brought society to a place where little boys and girls are now being referred to as ‘purple penguins’ by teachers. “Create classroom names and then ask all of the ‘purple penguins’ to meet on the rug’ a training manual advises. What are we doing? Glenn reacted on radio today.
"I want to show you how far disconnected we are from common sense now," Glenn said at the opening of todays radio show.
To illustrate his point, he gave three examples: 1) NBC News offering Jon Stewart 'Meet the Press' and 2) a Nebraska school referring to kids as "purple penguins" to avoid using gender-specific pronouns and 3) chaos at the Southern border.
"Tim Russert was a newsman. Jon Stewart is a comedian. But now NBC is taking 'Meet the Press', that was one of the icons, and saying it belongs in the hands of a comedian. And even Jon Stewart knew that was wrong. It would have destroyed Jon Stewart and destroyed NBC even more than they've destroyed themselves," Glenn said.
"News has become comedy entertainment," Glenn said.
"Number two [...] In Nebraska [one of our radio affiliates was] doing an interview with a school superintendent and the school superintendent has now said that we need to call children in school purple penguins. Purple penguins."
"So purple penguins are what we're supposed to call our kids. No, I don't think so. How are our kids going to know right from wrong, the difference of anything anymore, if we are now telling our kids [...] 'By the way, we're not calling you boys or girls we're calling you purple penguins. You're neither purple nor penguins. But that's what we're going to call you now so we don't insult you.'"
"Meanwhile, we're not closing our southern borders," Glenn said. "If you look at where the respiratory disease is really breaking out, it's breaking out in those towns where the United States government went and shipped all of those illegal aliens. They're still shipping them, by the way. But the towns with the highest concentrations of the illegal immigrants, illegal aliens, those towns are the ones that have the outbreak of the respiratory disease."
"Meanwhile, Duncan Hunter said yesterday that ten ISIS warriors were stopped at the border, and we know that other ISIS warriors have come across our border in the United States of America. ISIS is here. Yet we have Harvard students saying the United States of America is more dangerous to the world than ISIS is."
Glenn said that these stories are all stemming from America's obsession with political correctness, a progressive idea that is destroying the country.
"This tells you that we are so disconnected from the truth. That things are going to have to reset. And when they reset, they're going to reset hard. The farther you get away from the truth the harder the reset becomes," Glenn said.
"More and more, every single day, the 'Gods of the Copybook Headings' by Rudyard Kipling make more and more sense to me," Glenn said. "Rudyard Kipling knew. He was trying to ring the bell when the gods of the copybook headings are abandoned. Copybooks used to be what you used in school, and it would have a heading at the top of the page and it would say something that was true. God is good. Water will wet us. Fire will burn. And then you would copy that underneath for the whole page. So you were practicing your penmanship. Those were copybook headings. They were always things everyone could agree on. They were truisms. They were things that were eternally true."
Today, what do we hold to be true? 1) Comedy is news 2) Children are purple penguins 3) Nothing bad comes across our border 3) ISIS is good, America is bad.
"Trends come and go. People come and go. Political correctness comes and go. But those things that we know are true, children are not purple penguins, that will outlast any trend," Glenn said.
After reading Kipling's poem, Glenn emphasized the final line as the most important:
And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!
"This is the most important phrase because we are about to witness it happen," Glenn said.
