Her daughter's teacher said the pilgrims were America's first terrorists

Every parent knows the importance a good education, but the progressive indoctrination of America's children has reached chilling new heights. For over a year, Glenn has been warning parents about the dangers of Common Core. History is being forgotten, and in many cases rewritten. One mother, Cindy Vines, shared a shocking story with Glenn on radio this morning about her daughter's teacher. Allegedly, the teacher not only told the kids they should only learn from her teacher (not her parents), but also that the Pilgrims were America's first terrorists.

Below is a rough transcript of the segment:

GLENN:  So a couple of weeks ago, I was on Facebook, and it's late at night.  And I'm reading my Facebook.  And I really started to try to interact with you a little bit more on Facebook.  I think Facebook is the new -- is the replacement for the telephone and almost talk radio in a way.  It's mass communication, but also personal one-to-one.

So Cassidy Vines is a listener and a viewer of ours.  And she writes:  Glenn, I don't typically post or respond to posts on Facebook.  But after your radio program this morning, I feel compelled to share something, a story on what I feel my life purpose is.

And she goes on to talk about how she was homeschooled, and she didn't like it at the time because she was made fun of.  But then something happened to her.

She said:  Flash forward a decade now, and I have my own daughter.  This is the one-year mark since I graduated from the police academy.  And it was the deciding factor on whether or not I would homeschool my daughter.  I chose to work on my career.  But she started kindergarten and public school this year.  Seemed to be going great until a couple of weeks ago I went in for a parent/teacher meeting and found that they had been teaching these children that Pilgrims were America's first terrorists and I had an oh-crap moment.

[...]

And so we called Cassidy, she's on the phone with us now.  Cassidy Vines.

Hi, Cassidy, how are you?

CINDY:  I'm good.  How are you?

GLENN:  I'm really good.

When you were walking into school, and you found out your daughter was making some Indians artwork.  Right?

CINDY:  Right.  Well, they had already done it.  They had it lined along the hallways on the walls.

GLENN:  And what happened?

CINDY:  I went in for just a routine parent/teacher meeting with my daughter's teacher.  I went in armed with a slew of questions.  The biggest thing that was on my mind was something she told me that absolutely outraged me.  I was absolutely furious.

I was prepared to listen to what the teacher had to say just in case my daughter was maybe stretching the truth a bit.

So how it started was, one night I was helping my daughter with her homework.  You know, it's absolutely ridiculous math homework.  It was the -- the base ten stuff.  One ten plus another ten plus one, two, three, one, makes 23.  So I tried to correct her on it.  And this is Texas.  You know, Common Core.  It's Tekx.  T-E-K-X.

And I tried to correct her on it.  And she tells me that -- she snaps at me and tells me that I can't teach her.

She says, I'm her mommy, not her teacher.

GLENN:  Oh, my gosh.

CINDY:  So I kept that in the back of my mind to bring up with the teacher, but I was more concerned at the time with her new attitude that she brought home from school.

Two days later, she brings home this little booklet to read to me.  And, again, I tried to correct her on a word that she kept reading incorrectly.  And I said it in the most gentle way possible.  And she broke down crying and said, that's how she was taught, and I can't tell her something different because I'm a mommy, not a teacher.

GLENN:  Please tell me at this point you asked, where are you hearing this?

CINDY:  I did.  I did.  And my parents were there at the same time.  And it was like this new thing she learned how to do.  She's reading now.  And there's no way this was a coincidence.

So I asked her, I said, is somebody telling you this at school?

She said, yes, I'm only allowed to learn from my teacher.

And I sent several notes to school with her in her folder.  And I requested several times a meeting with the teacher, and I never got a response.  Finally when I did go in to see her, she tells me she wants me to email her, not send notes.

So finally I get a scheduled meeting with her to discuss her grades, and I tell her what my daughter said.  And I'm waiting for her to deny it.  It doesn't happen.

She goes on to tell me that they try to discourage parents from introducing contradictory concepts to our children.

STU:  Our children?

CINDY:  Yes.  Our children.  As in the school's children?

PAT:  Did you correct her on that?

GLENN:  No.  She's not a teacher.

CINDY:  I was a little baffled.

And so when I started talking about my daughter, I emphasized "my daughter."

So I asked her, I said, am I not allowed to help her with her homework?

She tells me that it's better if I just let her do it on her own.  They don't want parents confusing the kids.

PAT:  Oh, my gosh.  That is amazing stuff.

CINDY:  So going on to the Indians, during the same -- the same conference, I mention all the Indians lined up in the hallway that the kids made, and I asked when they're going to start on the Pilgrims.

Here's where eyebrows start going up.  She tells me that, although they're going to cover the Pilgrims, they're not going to emphasize them because of all the violence and the fact that they were essentially America's first terrorists.

It took my breath away.

GLENN:  Oh, my gosh.  How old was this teacher?

CINDY:  She's probably in her 30s.  She doesn't look much older than me.  I'm 27.

STU:  This reminds me of the "Interstellar" movie that was out recently.  It was the same thing where the machines were bad.

PAT:  And they hadn't gone to the moon.

And the problem was that Matthew McConaughey's character was at the school for was because his daughter kept bringing in the father's history book, his textbook, and he was going over the moon landing and all that stuff.  He was an astronaut at one time.

And she says, we can't have that in our school because that's not the corrected version.

STU:  The corrected version --

PAT:  Of history, which shows that the moon landing was fake.

STU:  That's supposed to be fiction.  We're learning here from Cassidy and we've learned in how many cases around the country that this stuff is going on.

PAT:  Yeah.  The revisionist has begun.

GLENN:  I don't even know what to say about this.  I get so uptight about this stuff.  This is the stuff that enrages me.

PAT:  I would have been arrested.

GLENN:  I would have too.  I would have.  I would have blown a gasket.  What did you do?

CINDY:  I went home.  First thing I do is I text my dad.  Because my dad, when I was homeschooled, he really forced history down my throat.  You know, I was writing college-level papers on history.  Absolutely hated it.

I texted him.

I said, Dad, get this.  This is what they're teaching your grandbaby.

Of course, he was furious.  So we started talking about it, and I decided right then and there that she was going to be pulled out of school and I would be homeschooling her.

So I wasn't going to do it right way.  I had to build her curriculum.  So I'm still working on that.  So probably after Christmas, she will be pulled out of school.

GLENN:  Good for you.

STU:  Wow.  That has to be a tough decision.

GLENN:  And how long will we be able to do that?

CINDY:  I don't know.  I was actually looking that up.

GLENN:  Yeah.  How long will we be able to have the right -- if they're already saying that these are our children and, listen, don't listen to mommy and daddy -- do you know what this?  You remember the Al Gore speech.  It was right after the election.  It was at the inauguration.  And he said -- and it was outrageous at the time.

And we played it on Fox.  And they, of course, distanced themselves from it, and they wouldn't answer anything.  But that's when he called everyone in and would not allow any parents, any adults in there, it was just teenagers.  And one of the kids tape-recorded it.  They turned on their i Phone, and they recorded it.  And what he said was, look, there are some things that your parents don't know that you just instinctively know.

Do we have that anymore?

PAT:  I don't think so.

STU:  We have to break through our kind of private idea that our kids belong to their parents or our kids belong to their families and recognize kids belong to whole communities.

GLENN:  I'm sorry.  But this is Hitler youth stuff.  It is.  When the State deems the child theirs over the parents --

PAT:  You don't have to go back that far.  Remember the Canadian thing?  The co-parent thing?

GLENN:  Yeah.

VOICE:  This is a difficult situation for the family to be in.  And we do work hand-in-hand with these families because we co-parent, so obviously we --

PAT:  Wait.  You co-parent?  The school co-parents?  No, you don't.

GLENN:  Remember that study came out and showed that 98 percent of those who are currently unemployed in the United States, 98 percent do not want a job.  They don't want a job.

And what was the number -- the number with the youth was also staggering.  It was, out of 14 to 27-year-olds, it was -- I don't remember what the number was, but it was a very high number that they don't even want to start looking for a job.  They're just not interested in work.  Well, why would you be when the government gives you everything?  And that's what's happening to us.

They're training us not to think.  Not to think for ourselves.  Not to do for ourselves.  And there is going to come a tipping point, and I don't know when it is.

But when that tipping point hits, we're in trouble.

And I have to tell you, Cassidy, I want to thank you so much for sharing this story with us.  And you just keep going and do the right thing.  Because you're on the right track.  And your parents, I know how much you probably hated -- well, I read your Facebook post.  You hated homeschooling, but are you grateful for it now?

CINDY:  I'm absolutely 100 percent grateful for it.

GLENN:  God bless you.  Thank you so much.

PAT:  Thanks for what you're doing.  I do have the Al Gore thing.

GLENN:  Hang on just a second.  Let me just say this.  That there's coming a tipping point, and it's going to happen sooner rather than later, I fear.  That they will just start to say that you're not doing this with your kid.  And when that happens -- I mean, we're in deep trouble.  We're in deep, deep trouble.  And Americans need to wake up.

When you're sitting around the Thanksgiving table, I want you to bring up what you heard -- this story.  And you heard it.  Don't quote it from me.  Don't say what show you heard it on.

Just say, there was this lady in Fort Worth, and she was talking about this happened.  And then start talking about what's happening in your schools.  And you listen to your parents and your grandparents, the older ones at the table, and see what they have to say about this.  This is an outrage, and Americans need to stand up against this.

We're at a point now to where we have to shut down the department of ed.  There's no reform that will be good enough.  You have to shut down the Department of Education.  It must be turned off.  And the control has got to go back to the local level.

Here's the Al Gore thing.  This happened the week of the first inauguration of Barack Obama.  They call all these students in.  Al Gore is giving a speech.  And there are no parents allowed.  And one of the kids hits record on their i Phone.  Here's what she picks up.

GORE:  I'm thinking back now a long way to when I was your age, and the civil rights movement was unfolding.  And we kids asked our parents and their generation, explain to me again why it's okay for the law to officially discriminate against people because of their skin color.  And parents try to tell their kids the right thing, you know, usually -- I do.  And when our parents' generation couldn't answer that question, that's when the laws started to change.

There are some things about our world that you know that older people don't know.

GLENN:  Oh, my gosh.  This is so dangerous.  So dangerous.

The first Thanksgiving was about humiliation, fasting, and prayer.  Humbling yourself before the Almighty God, praying, fasting, and giving thanks.

May I recommend, may I strongly recommend that we do this this Thanksgiving and turn our face to the almighty before we destroy ourselves?

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.

11 things you can do to help stop the Great Reset

The foundation of the American way of life is freedom from tyranny, which can only exist in a nation that defends the rights, powers, and property of individuals and families. Over the past two centuries, the greatest threats to liberty have come from governments, both foreign and domestic. And from the beaches of Normandy to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, Americans have repeatedly conquered the challenges placed before them by those seeking to extinguish or limit individual rights.

However, over the past few years, a new, potentially catastrophic danger has emerged, but not primarily from the halls of Congress or state capitols. This threat to freedom has largely emanated from the board rooms of the world’s wealthiest, most powerful corporations, large financial institutions, central banks, and international organizations such as the United Nations and World Economic Forum.

In an attempt to secure vast amounts of wealth and influence over society, corporate CEOs, bankers, and investors, working closely with key government officials, have launched a unified effort to impose environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards on most of the industrialized global economy. ESG standards are also referred to as “sustainable investment” or “stakeholder capitalism.” According to a report by KPMG, thousands of companies, located in more than 50 countries, already have ESG systems in place, including 82 percent of large companies in the United States.

ESG standards are designed to create a “great reset of capitalism” and to “revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.” ESG supporters plan to enact these radical changes by using ESG schemes to alter how businesses and investments are evaluated, so that instead of focusing on the quality of goods and services, profits, and other traditional economic metrics, companies — including financial institutions — are evaluated largely on their commitment to social justice and environmental causes and then assigned scores so that companies can be compared, rewarded, or potentially punished.

Supporters of the movement for a Great Reset also plan on using technology to limit free speech and privacy rights, and they support creating vast new government programs that are designed to transform the Western economy via the Green New Deal, European Green Deal, a federal jobs guarantee, and basic income programs.

Together, the proposals that make up the Great Reset represent the most serious threat to freedom in the West since the fall of the Soviet Union and perhaps since World War II. But there is hope. We can stop the Great Reset, but only if we act quickly and with great conviction.

Below are 11 steps you can take to push back against the Great Reset. These steps represent a powerful bottom-up, grassroots approach to the Great Reset’s top-down plan to remake the world. Although many of these steps won’t be easy for everyone to take, they are essential for ensuring that our children and grandchildren will grow up in a world that protects the rights of individuals and empowers families, rather than wealthy special interests, financial institutions, and large corporations.

1. Live Not by Lies: The time for remaining quiet is over. When you hear or see something that you know to be false, speak up. Be kind, generous, and compassionate, but do not, under any circumstances, allow lies to infect your life. Further, do not support organizations, publications, politicians, schools, or any other institutions that regularly promote false claims.

2. Buy Local: The reason the Great Reset is so powerful is because so many of us have become totally dependent on large multinational corporations. They can be easily manipulated in a way that small, local businesses cannot. Learn to buy local, whenever possible, even if it means spending more money on your purchases. Yes, big corporations offer conveniences and low prices that many small businesses can’t compete with, but those benefits come with a great cost: your freedom.

3. Bank Local: Big financial institutions and banks are driving much of the Great Reset movement. They have started to use their incredible wealth and power to alter society by financing only those businesses who agree to the terms of the Great Reset. This problem is going to get worse, so it’s important to find local banks and credit unions you can trust and who refuse to utilize ESG scores and other discriminatory schemes.

4. Support Local Farms: If you live in an area that has local farms and farmer’s markets, consider buying as many of your groceries as possible from farmers. In the future, food production and distribution are going to change dramatically. It’s important that you support local farmers and build relationships with individuals who can provide you with the goods you need in a time of crisis. One of our main goals must be to make local communities as self-sufficient as possible, and that cannot happen unless we support local farms.

5. Be Vocal: After starting to shop and bank locally, be sure to tell big financial institutions and corporations why they have lost your business. They need to know that their decisions have serious consequences.

6. Run for Local Government: Local and state governments will soon be our most important defense against the Great Reset. Consider running for your local school board, zoning board, or even for a state legislative office. If you don’t feel qualified for these positions, find someone who shares your values and help them run for office. If we don’t have control of our local governments, we won’t be able to halt the Great Reset.

7. Demand That Your State Pass Laws Against ESG Scores: In America, states have a tremendous amount of power to slow the Great Reset and protect their citizens from abuses by large corporations, banks, and international institutions. They can do this by passing laws that make the use of ESG metrics and other, similar systems by financial institutions illegal, when used as a precondition for banking services, financing, investment, etc. ESG scores are, by definition, discriminatory and should be made illegal by state lawmakers who care about protecting their citizens’ rights.

8. Make Responsible Spending a Key Issue for Politicians: In recent years, politicians on the ideological left and right have totally abandoned responsible fiscal policy in favor of vast money printing and loose monetary policies. The many trillions of dollars that have been “printed” in recent years put our economy at risk and are being used to fuel the Great Reset. Without these trillions of dollars of printed money, it would be exceptionally difficult for governments and financial institutions to buy off corporations.

9. Organize Anti-Great Reset Groups: No matter where you live, there are Americans in your community who do not support the Great Reset — Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike. Find like-minded neighbors and organize a local, peaceful resistance. Find people you can trust and agree to support one another when times get tough. Now, more than ever, we need to develop dependable communities.

10. Buy Property and Diversify: Property ownership is going to become increasingly more difficult in the months and years to come. It’s important that you work with a qualified financial adviser to help you figure out the best way to buy property and diversify your investments. Buying hard assets, including real estate and precious metals, could be a good way for you to protect against the Great Reset and a possible financial collapse. If you already own property, resist selling it to large corporations and financial institutions, whenever possible. (This is not financial advice, and I’m not a financial adviser. Talk to an expert you trust before taking action!)

11. Make the Great Reset a Litmus Test for Politicians: Before supporting politicians, find out if they know what the Great Reset is and what they plan to do to stop it. If they aren’t familiar with the Great Reset or don’t have a plan to halt it, then demand that they learn about the Great Reset and develop a proposal to prevent it. Political leaders who refuse to take the Great Reset seriously do not deserve your support. This is the key issue of our generation.
