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.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

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?
