Purple Penguins replaces ‘boys’ and ‘girls’ at public school

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.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
