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.

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.
