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.

The great beyond. What does it hide from us? Do unknown lifeforms linger in the dark? In other words, was David Bowie right? Is there life on Mars? The head of Harvard University's Astronomy Department contends that, yes, there is. Well, not that there's life on Mars. I'll explain in just a minute.

In an academic article for the Astrophysical Journal Letters, Dr. Avi Loeb, the head of Harvard University's Astronomy Department, claimed that an alien probe entered our solar system. He claimed that it is masked as the space rock Oumuamua (Ow-moo-ah-moo-ah), "the first interstellar object to enter our solar system." It turns out that "space rock" is way more than a musical genre.

RELATED: Science saves us again: Octopuses are really aliens who crash-landed on Earth

In his own words:

Considering an artificial origin, one possibility is that 'Oumuamua is a lightsail, floating in interstellar space as a debris from an advanced technological equipment.

His evidence? pointed to the space rock's abnormal acceleration, activity which he gathered via the Hubble Space Telescope.

He added that "the lightsail technology might be abundantly used for transportation of cargo between planets."

Sounds a bit like Star Wars, no? Or are you more of a Star Trek fan? Either way, it's an odd thing to hear from the head of Harvard University's Astronomy Department. Typically, we hear these sorts of things from the darker corners of the History Channel.

Well, I'll say that, at this point, I'm not really surprised. It's 2019. I'm not surprised by anything anymore.

"I don't care what people say," Loeb said. "It doesn't matter to me. I say what I think, and if the broad public takes an interest in what I say, that's a welcome result as far as I'm concerned, but an indirect result. Science isn't like politics: It is not based on popularity polls."

Honestly, I believe the guy. Well, I'll say that, at this point, I'm not really surprised. It's 2019. I'm not surprised by anything anymore. Heck, I welcome alien lifeforms. Maybe they can give us some advice on how to get our world together.

The third annual Women's March is approaching, and the movement has shown signs of strife. It's imploding, really. An article in Tablet Magazine revealed deep-seated antisemitism among the co-chairs of the movement, which is funny for a movement that brands itself as a haven of "intersectionality." The examples pile up, and just yesterday there was another. I'll tell you about it in a minute.

The Women's March has been imploding, and it started at the very top. Four women have come to represent the diverse face of the movement, the co-chairs: Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez, Linda Sarsour, and Bob Bland.

Increasingly, we've learned that anti-Semitism is common among these women.

Teresa Shook, who founded the Women's March has repeatedly asked them to step down: The co-chairs "have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship," Shook wrote. "But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti-LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs."

Tamika Mallory gave us the latest example, by continuing to stand by Louis Farrakhan. Check out Tamika's arrogant, nonsensical response. But the real problem came at the end of Mallory's rambling non-answer.

Later this week I'll go over the entire controversy on Glenn TV. It's harrowing, really. For now, I'll leave you with this. Critics of 4th wave feminism have argued that the radical identity politics of the left will lead to the exact kind of mistreatment that feminists claim to be against. That argument has been written off as using the slippery slope fallacy. But, as we see with the Women's March, it is in fact a brutal reality.

Remember how serious Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi were last week, when they gave their "rebuttal" to President Trump's address? They made it seem like this government shutdown is apocalyptic. A lot of Democrats have done the same. On social media and CNN at least. Thirty Democrats, however, took a different route. Puerto Rico. For cocktails at the beach.

A group of 30 Democrats have turned the government shutdown into a live-action interpretation of a Jimmy Buffet song:

Nibblin' on sponge cake, Watchin' the sun bake.

No, seriously. In the words of Press Secretary Sarah Sanders:

Democrats in Congress are so alarmed about federal workers not getting paid they're partying on the beach instead of negotiating a compromise to reopen the government and secure the border.

A photo of New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez at a resort beach has gone viral.

They arrived via chartered jet. They're staying at a seaside resort, and attended the ridiculously-priced and overhyped play "Hamilton," where tickets for opening night "ranged from $10 to $5,000," according to the Associated Press. They even attended several afterparties.

Of course, the official occasion seems legit. They're in San Juan for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC. According to a memo for the gathering:

This year's winter retreat promises to be our most widely attended yet with over 220 guests, including 39 Members of Congress and CHC BOLD PAC supporters expected to attend and participate!

Also in attendance, about 109 lobbyists, from a number of places, including "R.J. Reynolds, Facebook, Comcast, Amazon, PhRMA, Microsoft, Intel, Verizon, and unions like the National Education Association."

Donald Jr. said it well:

And of course no one says anything. I'm not even in government and I'd get killed in the press if I was on vacation right now. Why won't they cover their democrat buddies lobbyist sponsored vacation in the islands???

Maduro takes office and Venezuelans vote with their feet

CRIS BOURONCLE/AFP/Getty Images

Venezuela continues to collapse. A country that used to have the world's largest oil reserves is now in rags. Its money is worthless, with inflation near one million percent. People must work an average of five days at minimum wage just to afford a dozen eggs. But there is one person still pumped about Venezuela's future – its noble president, Nicolas Maduro! I'll tell you why he's still enthusiastic in just a minute…

Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro had a stellar 2018. Here are some highlights:

  • Running water and electricity only work occasionally and prices for basic goods doubled.
  • Doctors, engineers, oil workers, and electricians fled the country en masse. Over 48,000 teachers also left the country.
  • Over half a million Venezuelans fled to Peru alone.

Maduro created a new digital currency called the "petro." One petro is supposed to equal the price of a barrel of oil, about $60. U.S. Treasury Department officials call the petro a scam. Who could've seen that coming?

Maduro also announced a 3,000 percent minimum-wage hike. Even Ocasio-Cortez might roll her eyes at that one. Or find it inspiring.

And just yesterday, a Human Rights Watch report detailed how Venezuelan intelligence and security forces are arresting and torturing military personnel and their family members who are accused of plotting against Maduro. The torture includes: "brutal beatings, asphyxiation, cutting soles of their feet with a razor blade, electric shocks, food deprivation, [and] forbidding them to go to the bathroom."

It's so bad in Venezuela that even The Washington Post admits Venezuela's problems are mostly due to "failed socialist policies." But President Nicolas Maduro gave a televised New Year's address calling 2019, "the year of new beginnings." He's pumped, you see, because today he will be sworn in for his second six-year term as president. He was "re-elected" last May in an election that the international community declared illegitimate.

Thirteen nations released a statement last week urging Maduro not to take office and saying they would not recognize his presidency.

Maduro doesn't have many friends left at home or abroad. Thirteen nations released a statement last week urging Maduro not to take office and saying they would not recognize his presidency. This week, the U.S. added more Venezuelan officials to its sanctions list.

In a press conference yesterday, Maduro said:

There's a coup against me, led by Washington. I tell our civilians and our military to be ready. Our people will respond.

I think the people of Venezuela who have the means are already responding – by leaving.
