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.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
