Glenn Beck: Worst teacher ever (with video)




Video: Teacher bullies children who support McCain


GLENN: This is going to blow your mind and we have posted this video on our website at GlennBeck.com. This is a "Must see" video. This is the video. It comes from a Finnish documentary about the American election. Now, why we have to go to Finland to get information like this, this should shock and horrify every single person in America, especially because it's from a teacher, it's from a public school, it is -- it was never ratted out. It was never shown on any of our television sets. We never heard this, although we all know it's going on. And worse, the unions are going to grab us by the throats. The teachers unions have our children. Listen to the audio of a teacher here in America talking to her class. Looks to be maybe third or fourth grade maybe, probably fourth grade, about the election. Watch this.

VOICE: We want to talk about the presidential election, okay? But I want to ask you, who are you pulling for -- raise your hands.

VOICE: Obama.

VOICE: You're pulling for Obama. Who are you pulling for? Any of you pulling for John McCain? That's fine, say him as well.

VOICE: Obama.

VOICE: Obama -- oh, Lord, John McCain.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop, stop. Did you hear this? Anybody pulling for John McCain? It's okay. Who are you? Obama. Who are you? John McCain. "Oh, Lord." Do you hear this? This is subtly, a teacher subtly telling you, "Oh, you're stupid." Continue.

VOICE: Obama. John -- oh, Lord, John McCain.

VOICE: John McCain.

VOICE: Oh, Jesus, John McCain.

GLENN: Stop. Listen to that. "Oh, Jesus, John McCain." Are you going to answer if your teacher is reacting to John McCain? "Oh, Jesus, John McCain. Okay." Wow. Continue.

VOICE: Oh, Jesus, John McCain. Okay. Now I want to ask you something. Why are you pulling for John McCain? And it's okay but why are you pulling for John McCain?

GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second. "It's okay. Oh, Jesus, John McCain. Okay, it's okay, but why are you pulling for John McCain?" See, this is the way it happens. The teacher can say "I said it was okay." Yes, you did. Yes, you did but you sent a much, much different message. But it becomes clear. Wait.



VOICE: Because my parents are going for him, too.

VOICE: Okay, your parents are pulling for him? Why are you pulling for Barack?

VOICE: Because I just, I want a black President sometime.

VOICE: Okay, you want a black President?

VOICE: The reason why I would pick Barack Obama, because he's making good changes in the good countries, stuff like that.

VOICE: So he's making good changes by our country? Okay. Now, can you tell me just a little bit more like what type of changes?

VOICE: Like not having a fight between Iraq and having soldiers killed.

GLENN: Okay. Stop, stop, stop. Now she's engaged with a Barack supporter. Not having an argument with Iraq and having our soldiers killed. To me there's some followup questions with the Obama supporter but instead she now turns to a daughter, to a little girl who said she supported John McCain. Listen to what she says.

VOICE: So in other words, Barack is going to end that war in Iraq. What do you-all know about that war in Iraq? Huh? Your dad's in the military. Talk.

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. She looks at that little girl and she says, what do you-all know about that war in Iraq? What do you know? Talk. She points to the little girl: Talk. Talk, what do you know; your dad is in the military. Do you see the hostility here? Your dad is in the military. Then she -- the little girl doesn't say anything and then the teacher says, it's -- and leans in to her: It's a senseless war. So in other words, what your dad is doing is either getting killed or killing people for no reason whatsoever. Are you ever going to raise your hand? What do you think about what your dad does? What do you think about the system? How does a child navigate? When they're in conflict with their family, their parents and their school. Respect authority. How do they navigate? How do we expect them to understand the world? Only one of them is right. So either I can trust my teacher or I can trust my family. Which one is it? It gets worse.

VOICE: It's a senseless war. And by the way, Kathy, the person that you're picking for President said that our troops could stay in Iraq for another 100 years if they need to. So that means your dad has to stay in the military for another 100 years.

GLENN: Stop. Do you hear this? The guy you're going to vote for, Kathy, says the troops are going to stay in Iraq for another 100 years. So your dad is going to be in the military for another 100 years. The stress of a kid in the fourth grade, of Dad going off to war. Is Dad going to be alive, is Dad going to be killed, is Dad ever going to come home? Now the teacher has said it's a senseless war and your dad's going to be there for another 100 years. Watch the whole video at GlennBeck.com. It is jaw-dropping. Jaw-dropping. Again from a Finnish documentary filmmaker because nobody here in America cared to show or cares to show the indoctrination of our children that just didn't just happen. It's been going on for quite some time. And why does it -- why is it allowed to happen? Because we're sheep. We're sheep.

There are teachers like you just heard that are trying to intimidate and then teach our children. Teach your children about America, teach your children about our history, teach your children about our heritage. Teach them that work ethic, teach them that you don't take money from other people. Our children will be educated. They will learn. The only question is what are they going to learn. Who's going to be educating them? We can't let the politicians keep running around keeping us so busy that we lose focus. No success can compensate for the failure in the home. But if we all try to do all that we can and our kids turn out to be losers, we can always drop them off at that hospital in Nebraska. I'm just saying. You know where you drop off the children regardless of their age, no questions asked, no criminal charges? Just drive to Alaska -- or I mean to Nebraska. If you've done your job... but far too many of us, far too many of us just don't think that this is a problem in our neighborhood. It is.

I bring you back to the two convenience store workers that we had on today that I asked him about, you know, redistribution of wealth and More-On Trivia: Well, we're going to take that money from those evil rich people, aren't we? Two of them, two of them said, "I hope so. You bet, I hope so." We're losing who we are. We have already lost much of it. Much of the country doesn't even know who we are anymore, and the government and the unions and everybody else is going to take it and put the final nail in the coffin. Don't allow that to happen. Know what you believe in and stand up for it. Run for office. Speak out. Be a force for change. Be a force for good. Be a force for freedom because freedom and liberty comes from God, and it is given directly to you. No one can take that away. We can only lose it because we don't pay attention.

It's not just the Twitter mobs, the Leftist extremists and the flagrant fourth-wave feminists who want ICE abolished. As we've seen, there's a growing number of politicians who want to see it as well.

Cue Alejandro Alvarez, who in his 32 years has managed to cultivate his brand as a "serial immigration violator." Alejandro has been deported 11 times. Well, he's facing deportation once again, after allegedly "slashing his wife with a chainsaw." His wife is in recovery and is expected to survive.

Around 3:00 pm last Wednesday, police arrived at Alejandro's. When they arrived, they found Alvarez's wife suffering from "traumatic physical injuries, believed to have been inflicted by a chainsaw." The couple's three children were huddled in fear inside the home. Alejandro's wife was rushed to a nearby trauma center for an emergency surgery.

Alejandro fled the scene of the crime, but was eventually hauled in by police and booked under "suspicion of attempted murder, child endangerment, hit and run, and grand theft auto."

Sounds like the kind of guy who should be in our country illegally, right?

ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley noted that "Immigration officers have lodged a detainer against Alvarez, requesting that local authorities notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement before his release to allow them to take the man into custody."

This is the new reality.

This is the new reality. The immigration agency has to ask for permission, to file requests, to have illegal immigrants who are guilty of crimes dealt with. Luckily for Alejandro, Los Angeles is a sanctuary city, so maybe he'll get another pass and be back on the streets in no time.

The Purple Heart is reserved for those wounded or killed during battle. Awarded by the President, the medal has George Washington's image right there on the front of it. Make no mistake, it is reserved for heroes. True heroes. Men and women who've faced death and still persevered. Soldiers who fought in battle at the cost of their limbs, their lives, or their inner peace. John F. Kennedy earned a Purple Heart for his heroism as a gunboat pilot in 1944. John McCain received one for, well, we all know his horrific story. Colin Powell. Roughly one million Purple Heart medals have been awarded to veterans, all of whom were determined to have fought valiantly, with courage and heart.

So it was a bit of a head-scratcher to hear comments from Democratic Representative Steve Cohen from Tennessee and self-appointed "Leader in Effort to #ImpeachTrump." During a House Oversight Committee hearing questioning Peter Strzok, Cohen said, perplexingly, that Strzok deserves a Purple Heart. You know, because he's injured by all those mean text messages that HE sent?

As we've seen, other than Cohen's fanboy praise, Strzok hasn't gotten off easy. Thankfully. The Department of Justice's Office of the Inspector General wrote: "We did not have confidence that Strzok's decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the [Anthony] Weiner laptop was free from bias."

Lack of confidence. I believe that's one of the criteria for a different medal. Not a Purple Heart, though. Sorry, Strzok, you'll have to get your trophy elsewhere.

Time mgazine is back at it again, reporting the real news, doing the proper journalism. One of their latest articles is sure to earn them a Pulitzer. Surely. The article is titled, "Women Are Buying Up Plan B Because They're Terrified of the Future Supreme Court."

Here's how the article opens:

Within hours of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy's retirement announcement last month, Emily Hauser was standing at a drugstore counter asking a pharmacist for two packages of Plan B. At age 53, she didn't need the emergency contraception pills — in fact, she wasn't sure who would, or when. But Hauser bought them anyway.

I like that the article sets up Kennedy's retirement as an apocalyptic event. A recurring theme in the mainstream media, now that I think of it, especially lately. Here's the gist of it:

Across the country, Americans are stockpiling emergency contraception in light of Justice Kennedy's retirement and President Donald Trump's Monday nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. The nation's highest court is on its way to having a conservative majority, making threats against Roe v. Wade seem more dire than ever.

A good article includes backstory. History. The context. Here's what Time had to say about the sudden influx—some would say panic—in birth control:

To understand the interest in buying up Plan B, you need to brush up on Roe v. Wade. Some background: The court handed down the 7-2 decision in 1973, confirming that a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy is covered by the Fourteenth Amendment. Progress has been rocky since then.

Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies.

Ah, yes. Of course they reduce the issue to a series of strawman fallacies. At this point, it's impossible for those inflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome, and now Kavanaugh Derangement Syndrome, to have a civil conversation. They certainly aren't going to budge in their opinion. Our main goal, obviously, is to connect to them as fellow human beings, living in the same chaotic world, and, hey, maybe along the way they'll admit that, maybe, they're a little more biased and deranged than they previously realized.

If all you knew about American politics came from The New York Times, CNN, The Washington Post, or MSNBC, you'd think that a "Blue wave" is about to swamp the country, with hip, millennial geniuses like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez surfing the crest of the wave. In fact, you would already think Ocasio-Cortez is the greatest hope for America since Barack Obama.

America is a very large country, and reality is usually more complex than the media lets on. But, since the media already has their narrative and superstar Ocasio-Cortez set for this November, there's no room for another young, minority, female, child of immigrants, political outsider, from the ultimate blue-wave state of California, named Elizabeth Heng. Well, there probably would be room for a story like that, except that she's a conservative.

Thirty-two-year-old Elizabeth Heng is running for Congress against Democrat Jim Costa, in California's 16th district. It's been 40 years since a Republican won in that district.

In the early 1980s, Heng's parents fled the violence in Cambodia and immigrated to the U.S. In 2008, after graduating from Stanford where she was student-body president, Heng opened several cell-phone stores with her brothers in the central San Joaquin Valley. Running her own business and managing 75 employees opened her eyes to a not-so-dirty secret about capitalism trying to survive the virus of progressivism. She says, "I saw firsthand how government regulations impacted businesses negatively. I constantly felt that from Washington, D.C., and Sacramento, they were saying that I was everything wrong with our country, when all I was doing was creating jobs."

That's when she decided to venture to Washington, D.C., where she worked for six years learning the ins and outs of legislation and campaigning. She ended up working as a director for President Trump's inauguration ceremony, a job she managed while also finishing her MBA at Yale.

Fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone.

One of the biggest lessons she learned working in Washington became the platform she is now running for office on: fiscal responsibility. She says, "In a family or a business, we don't suddenly act surprised when a budget comes up for the year. We get it done."

What a concept.

Still, fiscal responsibility isn't quite as sexy-sounding as free college for everyone. So, don't expect Elizabeth Heng to replace Ocasio-Cortez as the media darling anytime soon.
