This Student Just Dropped the Mic in Debate With His Teacher Over Definition of Terrorism

The left took over the education system long ago, but the arrogance of some teachers still has a way of causing your jaw to drop to the floor. The latest offender is a 12th grade English teacher who got into a verbal sparring match with one of her students over the definition of terrorism.

In a video that is now going viral, the student uses facts to support his arguments and even points to the definition of terrorism found in Merriam-Webster's dictionary. But the teacher refuses to concede, going so far as to say she's "smarter" than the dictionary.

"The teacher is incorrect, and what the teacher says about the dictionary towards the end is unbelievable," Glenn said on radio Wednesday.

"If this teacher were teaching my kids --- and I don't care if it was about the definition of something that wasn't being politically charged --- and I had tape, I would right now be saying, you must fire this teacher. Just the sheer arrogance."

Watch the insanity unfold in the video below.

GLENN: Hey, wait. Wait. I have to get your comments on this: Student versus teacher audio, please. I think this came yesterday.

PAT: Okay.

Oh, I love this. I love this.

GLENN: Did you see -- this is a teacher trying to tell the student that they are -- they are wrong about the definition of terrorism. The teacher is incorrect, and what the teacher says about the dictionary towards the end is -- is unbelievable.

If this teacher were teaching my kids -- and I don't care if it was about the definition of something that wasn't being politically charged, it was just -- and I had tape, I would right now be saying, you must fire this teacher.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Just the sheer arrogance. But listen to the insanity.

VOICE: It's not a terrorist attack, when there's no political aim.

VOICE: That's not true.

VOICE: A terrorist -- when you commit violence to further a political goal.

VOICE: You are wrong. You are wrong. Terrorism does not have to have a political agenda.

VOICE: That's literally the definition! That's literally -- when you use violence to further a political aim, that is the definition of terrorism.

VOICE: No, you're wrong.

VOICE: That is the definition of terrorism.

VOICE: You're dealing with a tainted definition.

VOICE: Are you just going to do what the alt-right does? It's everyone else's fault. It's everyone else's fault. It's everyone else's fault. That's what the alt-right does.

VOICE: Terrorism means that you can be a white man who is a terrorist. There is a message --

VOICE: Oh, my gosh. Yes, obviously. No one denies that. No one denies that.

VOICE: You're denying that. Because all of these are operating --

VOICE: Yeah, but they have a political aim. The Vegas shooter had, as far as we know, no political aim.

Terrorism: The unlawful use of violence -- the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.

VOICE: No.

VOICE: The Vegas shooter, as far as we know, unless something comes out -- what do you mean? You're not smarter than the dictionary.

VOICE: Yes, I am. I'm -- I am. You're dealing with a highly intelligent woman. Yes. Yes.

VOICE: You're smarter than Merriam-Webster -- you're smarter than Merriam-Webster dictionary? You're smarter -- whoa. Whoa.

VOICE: That could mean any way.

GLENN: Okay. That's 12th grade English! This is 12th grade English class. By the way, in case you aren't watching the show, you're just listening to it. That's not a white kid. That's either an Arab kid or Hispanic kid. That's not a white kid.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: What's the deal here?

This is the kind of indoctrination. And once your kids are smart enough to push back, they will win.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: We have to be smart enough to make the logical case. Because nobody has ever pushed back against these people. And then they start to have to say these things, I'm smarter than the dictionary.

STU: That's amazing. By the way, if you think that's some right-wing talking point on the definition of terrorism. Obviously he cited the dictionary. But listen to this, this is Chris Cuomo, who is smarter than the dictionary.

STU: Yeah, he's definitely smarter than the dictionary. We know that for a fact. But listen to him the other day talking about terrorism.

VOICE: One of the things that winds up being prickly here is how we define it. People will say, well, when the brown guy did it in New York City, it's terror. But when the white guy does it, it's not. People misunderstand, I think, the legally -- the contextual relationship between the word "terrorism" and "investigations." I've asked you this before, I'm asking you again now: What does it take for something to be terror to investigators?

CHRIS: Pretty straightforward, if he's motivated by a political motivation, that is, he's protesting, for example, US engagement in Iraq or Syria, he's protesting racial issues in the United States, which is political, that goes into terrorism.

If he's simply angry because of something that's happened in his life, maybe similar to what we saw in Las Vegas, that's not terror. That's simple violence, and that's insanity. I'm guessing in this case, we're going to find that he, as the president suggested, had some mental issues. That doesn't necessarily take me to terror.

VOICE: I mean, people I think confuse who does it with why they do it. And you guys are focused on why it's done and how you can make that manifest in terms of agenda.

GLENN: So I hate to break it to the 12th grade teacher, but even most likely your God of Chris Cuomo at CNN would agree with the dictionary, that maybe, perhaps, you're not as smart, as Merriam-Webster.

STU: As smart as Merriam, but not Webster.

PAT: I believe that agreeing with Chris Cuomo is also a sign that the fourth horsemen of the apocalypse is saddling up and getting ready to ride through town.

STU: True.

GLENN: Oh, I'm looking for Wormwood in my telescope tonight. Thanks, Pat.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
