“I can’t even listen to it. I can’t even listen to it. They’re just, all they’re saying to her is you’re so fat, you’re so ugly, they’re poking her. This is a woman, what, 60 years old?” Glenn when he heard just a portion of the audio.
“While things were obviously far from perfect in the 1950s, we have come so far on many fronts, some of them really good, some of them not so positive. We have lost our way as a society,” Glenn explained.
“Let’s start here. A busload of middle schoolers, these are 12‑ and 13‑year‑old kids. There’s no way that they would have been brazen enough, nasty enough, callous enough to continue the onslaught like this against an elderly woman for ten full minutes in the 1950s. Oh, I know there were problems in the 1950s, but look how we have fixed most of those problems and at the same time gone in the opposite direction. Secondly, even if they would have been, the driver would have slammed on the brakes at some point, gotten out of his seat and administered some old‑fashioned ass‑whoopin’ with these 12‑year‑old kids. If not the driver, I do believe there would have been at least a student or two among the 30‑plus on board who had the guts and the decency to stop or at least try to stop it,” he continued.
“The kids in this video are dead inside. There are a ton of factors that have contributed to this slide. Maybe TV, movies, music, video games that desensitize, lack of the nuclear family unit, both parents now outside the home, no one raising the kids except the government, the schools not being able to have any kind of control, the “not my kid” mentally, the fact that every kid now has an attorney. I don’t know what’s gone into this toxic mix.”
“But let me ask you this: We’re coming up on the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling eliminating school prayer. Have things gotten better or worse? Has our scholastic standing worldwide improved or degraded? Are our kids better behaved? Are they happier, or are they more tragic, more prone to suicide, and more, almost completely out of control? Are schools safer or much, much more dangerous than they were? These kids don’t even see another human being,” he said.
