PA middle school gives Fifty Shades of Grey puzzle to kids

Many adults are excited for the New York Times best selling book, 50 Shades of Grey to have its movie debut. The film has been garnishing tons of media attention as it heads towards it Valentine's Day weekend debut. The key is that this is a "adult" film with "adult themes," unnecessary for children to learn about, especially middle school children. Yes, you read that correctly, I just mentioned middle school children and 50 Shades of Grey in the same sentence.

TheBlaze recently published an article bringing attention to a 50 Shades of Grey themed crossword puzzle five eighth-grade students received from their teacher. THEIR TEACHER! The puzzle contained words such as "spanking," "submissive," "leather cuffs," and "bondage." Ignoring the fact that the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy can barely be classified as literature, the series and its adult content should never be part of any school excercises or activities.

Glenn took to radio this morning to share his opinion on this teacher approved excercise, saying "How does that even happen? I'm so tired of hearing. Well, that's a huge mistake. You have a serious problem going on in your school if you have "50 Shades of Gray" in a puzzle going to your middle class students. You have a serious problem." Where were any adults along the way or once the excercise was copied to question the puzzle?

I'm not even a parent, and I'm upset about this. Adding further outrage, one parent claims that when he tried to question the school's principles and dean of students, they refused to talk about the subject when he insisted on recording their conversation. Seriously?!

Glenn provided two answers that he would have deemed acceptable. The first response is: "Wait. Wait. Wait. What! Yes, I'd like to record your response. Go ahead and record this. What! What happened? Show that to me. I can't believe that. Show that to me. Hang on just a second. Is this real? Does anybody else know? Did this come to your kids?...I will get to the bottom of this. I have no idea. Go ahead and record this. I have no idea. I will get to the bottom of this. This is an outrage."

The second response being, "Go ahead and tape this. You're damn right I know about it. And I'm more mad about this than you are. This is my responsibility. I don't know how it happened. But I will tell you, from the principal all the way down, people will lose their jobs. For this to go on shows me that there is a real problem in our district because it wasn't just one person making a mistake. And if it was that one person that was making a mistake, we have a problem with the way we hire people. How did we hire somebody with this poor of judgment?"

For any parent who is concerned about their child's public school education, you should tune in tonight at 5PM ET for Glenn's discussion on homeschooling. Glenn will sit down with different homeschooling supporters and discuss the myths and fears accompanied with the education most are not familiar with. As more and more irresponsible situations continue to pop up concerning public school and the lack of concern paid to individual children's needs, many more are turning to homeschooling as a solution.

Watch Glenn's reaction to the 50 Shades of Grey puzzle below and hear his conversation on homeschooling.

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself and he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded in physicality and stop taking so much for granted.

Hanson joined Glenn on the latest "Glenn Beck Podcast" to point out that this needs to happen soon because, as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting pretty bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

In the clip below, Hanson shares a crucial lesson that woke America has forgotten — but surprisingly enough, President Donald Trump never did. Watch the video clip below or find the full podcast here or wherever you listen to podcasts:

Our police officers are called racists, killers, and murderers even if all the evidence suggests the opposite is true. With the bodycam footage and information we have so far, it looks like the Columbus, Ohio, police officer involved in the shooting of Ma'Khia Bryant "is a hero," Glenn Beck said.

On the radio program, Glenn, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray discussed the fatal shooting of the 16-year-old who appeared to be about to stab another girl when the officer shot her. They agreed that the officer arrived at an extremely chaotic scene, and within seconds was able to identify the threat and react. But that hasn't prevented the Left from demonizing him — like LeBron James tweeting the officer's photo and saying "you're next."

Glenn went on to say it's time for the Fraternal Order of Police to stand with its officers and for Columbus police temporarily to walk from the job to show the Left and the media unity for the officer currently under investigation.

"I want you to either call or maybe you tweet today, 'Police we support you. I stand with the police. #Istandwiththepolice.' Our police are under attack," Glenn stated.

"And let me tell you something, police officers, if you are a racist and you're out shooting people, I will be the first to come and say, 'put that guy in prison' ... but the vast majority of police officers are good and competent," he continued. "And they're doing their best. And they're risking their lives for us. I stand with the police!"

"Make sure you let your local police officers know that," Glenn added. "And FOP, I'm telling you, you have to do a strike in some of these cities, and Columbus would be a really good place to do it. ... You have got to send a message to the media and everyone else. One day without police in one of these cities and you see what happens. You don't want the police? You want to 'reimagine' the police? Go ahead! Until the White House stops this nonsense, walk."

A shocking report from Yahoo News recently exposed a covert operation to track Americans' social media posts for "inflammatory" content — carried out by the U.S. Postal Service.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere broke down what we know about the USPS' surveillance effort, known as the Internet Covert Operations Program (or iCOP), and the role it plays in providing other federal agencies with information on "right-wing leaning" accounts, among other data, and asked: Who exactly authorized the U.S. Postal Service to monitor the internet?

"It was found out yesterday and released in a story by Yahoo News, the United States Postal Service is apparently tracking social media posts as part of a clandestine program, searching for inflammatory messages," Glenn began. "Wait, the Postal Service has a clandestine operation going on?"

Glenn read highlights from the Yahoo report, noting that iCOP has quietly had analysts combing through various social media sites, particularly those considered "right-wing leaning," looking for "inflammatory" postings and then sharing information with other government agencies.

"The Postal Service is now spying on you. But no big deal, right?" Glenn added sarcastically.

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.
