TheBlaze: California School Orders Boy to Remove American Flag From Bike

GLENN: Now, I have a story that has been posted on TheBlaze.com. California school orders a boy to remove his American flag from a bike. And there's video here on it, but I want you to listen to the audio of it. It is this is a remarkable story. Listen to this.

REPORTER: and this teenager in Denair says he just wanted to honor family members with this patriotic symbol of the flag but school officials said no.

GLENN: California.

REPORTER: The Stars and Stripes fly over Denair Middle School and on the back of Cody Alicia's book wherever he goes.

CODY ALICIA: I come from a family full of veterans and thought I would support our country.

REPORTER: But recently he was told he can't fly his flag on the back of his bike when he goes to school. The reason?

CODY ALICIA: You can't have that flag on the back of your bike anymore because some students have been complaining. I didn't ask why. I didn't want to fight with her. So I just said okay.

REPORTER: So now the 13 year old properly folds up the flag and stores it in his backpack while in school. Something his father says he shouldn't have to do.

VOICE: He's got that flag on his bike because he's proud of where he comes from.

SUPERINTENDENT: First Amendment's important.

GLENN: This is the school superintendent that was I'm sorry, that's the school superintendent that you're listening to. You have to hear this.

SUPERINTENDENT: With that comes a responsibility.

REPORTER: The Denair school superintendent says the school dealt with racial tension on campus on Cinco de Mayo.



TheBlaze: California School Orders Boy to Remove American Flag From Bike

SUPERINTENDENT: Our Hispanic, you know, kids will, you know, bring their Mexican flags and they will display it and then, of course, the kids will do the American flag situation, and it does cause kind of a racial tension which we don't really

GLENN: Okay, stop for a second. I just want to make sure. The school's Hispanic kids will bring, quoting, their Mexican flag and then the American kids will bring their American flag. I'm sorry. What? Hmmm? What is I'm sorry. I didn't I'm trying to understand this.

PAT: This is what this is what you deal with in the border states. This is it.

STU: They are not all Americans? I thought they would all want

GLENN: No, no, they are just good families trying to make ends meet and coming to the country, but they are bringing their own Mexican flag. So in other words, what you're saying is they're here, they're sitting at the table in our house and let's just paint this scenario here. It's Thanksgiving and some uninvited people, they're not your family, they just crawl through the window of your house and then they're sitting at the table. Somehow or another your family has gone

PAT: Well, you left the window open.

GLENN: I know.

PAT: You might as welcome in.

GLENN: Your family has gone insane and whoever is in charge of the family has convinced everybody, you know what, this is their table and their house and their food, too. And everybody's looking and going, what the we don't even know these people; who are they. They just good people. Good people? They could have knocked at the door. They came in last night. We found them sleeping in our basement going through our stuff!

PAT: Yeah, but you left your window open. So they have every right. And they smelled the food.

GLENN: Right, okay. So now they are sitting let's just get to the table. Just try to get through the insanity that is this scenario. Where everybody is like, I don't even know, at least the parents and the grandparents are like, yeah, this is totally school. And all of us kids are sitting around going, this is nuts. But they're at the table now. And now they start saying, your food sucks. Our food's much better. Your house is a piece of crap. You know what you have? You saw that doormat out front? It says Beck on it? That is the most hateful thing I have ever seen. It's a doormat that says my how did you even see it? You came through the basement window. "I'm offended by that doormat. I'm putting mine down. Mine says Rosenkrans." And they take your doormat and your parents say, "Just take the doormat. We don't want to have any fights here. Just take the doormat and put the doormat away and just go ahead and put the Rosenkrans doormat." How long before the Rosenkrans just claim this is their home? I've got the damn doormat! Don't you see? Is it just me? Is it just me on this one?

All right, back to the superintendent telling us all how to be good kids.

VOICE: We want them to appreciate the cultures.

REPORTER: A very similar situation to Cinco de Mayo in Morgan Hill. When students wearing American flag T shirts were sent home. But not before getting in screaming matches with students with Mexican flags.

GLENN: Mexican flags.

REPORTER: In Denair school officials say no matter the flag, they want it down.

GLENN: Wait, wait. Wait. Wait, wait, wait. Did they send the Mexican flag kids home, too?

PAT: No. No, they did not, no.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: They didn't want to cause a problem. And you know what? It's good for them to show their culture and their heritage.

GLENN: Oh, so we're supposed to

PAT: Good for them.

GLENN: respect people's culture?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Just not ours?

PAT: Right, that's exactly right.

GLENN: Oh, I understand.

PAT: You're getting it now. Finally you're getting it.

GLENN: I'm really not but

PAT: It's about time.

GLENN: Okay.

REPORTER: to help protect all students.

SUPERINTENDENT: Sometimes we just don't want that kid to get hurt or if we hear a rumor or if it's causing some flack during lunchtime or whatever happens, okay, we have to take care of it.

CODY ALICIA: I'm just hoping that I can keep the flag

GLENN: Hold on just a second. So look, we just don't want we don't want kids to get hurt? Yeah, I think that's everybody's I think that's everybody's. That's a pretty good bottom line there, school superintendent. We just don't want kids to get hurt. That's good. And so if we hear a rumor, we're just going to have to take care of it. If we hear rumors? We're just going to have to take care of it.

STU: Strong stand there.

GLENN: It is. I mean, it's good to see the adults are in charge of the insane asylum. I mean, nothing makes sense. You know, you tell me, America. How is this sustainable? It's not. It's not. Our houses we can't afford. You know what the beginning of the unraveling was? The beginning of the unraveling was oil going up to 100, what was it, $130, $140 a barrel? That's what it was. Look at the timing. Look at the charts. I bet you if you put the charts together, I'll bet you that the time that the banks started to unravel was when energy, which is 25%, 25% of the world's economy, when energy doubled in price. We couldn't afford the stuff we had because of the energy.

STU: Yeah, there are some people who think that the oil price was at least as or maybe even more important to the collapse than housing stuff.

GLENN: No, I think the housing stuff collapsed because of the energy.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: We couldn't afford the houses and it was all a tangled mess but then when energy hit, then it was just over. Then it was like, I can't do it. And that's what that was the, the energy I think was the first domino to fall. They are all dominoes and they are all teetering but the energy was the domino to fall.

STU: And you were talking about that at the time, essentially what you were calling the perfect storm theory.

GLENN: Yep.

STU: That there would be this big event of a huge energy increase and that it could cause a bunch of the dominoes over and cause something really bad.

GLENN: Yeah, I was talking at the time that if you had a conflict with Iran and, you know, you had a spike of $200 a barrel, it would be over. It would be lights out. Let me ask you something. Have you noticed that, what is oil up to today? $90 a barrel? Wasn't it like $70 just recently? Why is it up to $90 a barrel?

STU: $85.27.

GLENN: $85.27. Why is that? And nobody seems to be concerned about it. Nobody seems to be concerned. The reason why oil is going up is because our policies are making it impossible. And on top of that, we are devaluing our dollar. The Arabs don't care what we do with our dollar. They don't wear. Oil is pegged to the price of a dollar. It's a dollar. Period. Whatever the dollar does. So if our dollar loses value, oil goes up. That's just the way it is. It's a commodity. It's the same as gold. Gold isn't just going up. Gold is going up on speculation. But also gold goes up because of the value of the dollar. They are tied. So how exactly do we now in the shape that we're in. Let's say oil goes up to $110. Let's just say let's be crazy. Let's come up with an insane scenario. Let's say somebody fires a missile off the coast of California. That would never happen. Let's just say something crazy in the world happens. Let's say there is a, oh, I don't know, a conflict in the Middle East. Again another crazy scenario. What happens to the price of energy? And then what happens to the dollar and what happens to our economy? We are teetering on the edge of the abyss. Not a crash. The abyss, a global abyss. It's not America. It's the globe. If you don't think China isn't freaking out about inflation. Do you know that they have 125 men to every 100 women? That leaves 25 guys I mean, they have got to be praying that, you know, homosexuality catches on or something. I don't know. You've got to have 25 guys who are looking around going, I can't make a family? I can't I mean, hello. That doesn't work. It doesn't work. You are going to have problems because you can't have people young with the possibility of no future. And that's the only thing China has going for it right now is they have a future. They are saying unbelievable growth is coming, double digit growth is coming. It's great. It's great. But if that starts to pummel, if that starts to go down, you're in trouble. You're in trouble. Once if God forbid they start to feel like we feel now where, man, it's not going to get better which is not true, by the way, if they start to feel like that, China becomes your worst nightmare. Because they have to do what they have to do to keep their country and two billion people happy.

So how does it all shake, you know, stay together? It doesn't. It doesn't. Not in the form that it's in. But this is where the choice comes in. And there are those, as I showed you over the last three nights, George Soros has his own direction. You're seeing it here in the story about the flag. What is that? That's an Open Society where there are no flags, there are no nations. We all just get along. That doesn't work!

So what I'm asking you to do is to downsize your life, is to find out what you're really grateful for. Find out what the assets are around you. Find gratitude in your life, start service in your life. And then be ready for new year and change your life. Change your life. Let's be a part let's be the change we're looking for. And lead the way.

 

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."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
