Glenn is obsessed with Spider-Man

Glenn goes to a lot of Broadway shows, but he's rarely blown away by a show enough to give an on air review. But on today’s radio show he gave a glowing review for “Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark” and declared it to be the best show he has ever seen.

“This is the best show I've ever seen, bar none.  Heads and shoulders above anything else,” Glenn exclaimed on radio.

Glenn seemed to be most impressed by the quality of the production. “They were doing stuff that I've never seen before.  It starts in the first three minutes like Cirque du Soleil and like you see at Disney.  And then it just goes up from there.  The acting, the acrobatic, the physicality of this is, it's athletics.  It's unbelievable.”

Glenn was blown away by the acrobatics of the actors. He described how at one point, Spider-Man jumped from the stage to the balcony and landed right in front of him, before leaping again from balcony to balcony, flying and fighting. “It's so fast and so amazing,” he said. “You never see it coming.”

“I would pay money to sit behind the scenes and just watch the stage hands,” Glenn said, as he was so impressed with the production. “It is wrong for the theater and for the cast to take a bow and not have the stage hands come out and take a bow.”

“The stage is the eight wonder of the world,” he declared. Glenn described how at one point the Chrysler building comes up and Spider-Man jumps off and the stage moves and suddenly you’re hovering over the city as Spider-Man swings from building to building. “You’ve never seen anything like it.”

It is head and shoulders above anything he has seen in over thirty years of going theater.

Glenn was also a big fan of the story. Anyone who knows Spider-Man knows that the character is rooted in personal tragedy and personal responsibility.  “With great power comes great responsibility,” that’s a message that anyone in this country can take home to their families. The show takes the core of the Spider-Man story and makes it accessible to everyone.

Glenn also loved the music, despite the fact that he’s never been a big U2 fan. He said, “This music was written by Bono and the Edge and it is brilliant.  It is the lyrics; it is hit after hit after hit after hit after hit,” adding, “It is unbelievable music.”

Glenn’s only complaint about the show? He’s mad he didn’t invest in it. “They spent $50 million.  It will have to be sold out for, every ticket, for two years to break even.  My problem with this is I didn't invest.  It will run for two decades.”

“I'm telling you, you go buy your ticket.  You buy your ticket now.  If you're thinking about coming to New York.  Because when this thing opens and gets starting to run, you will not be able to get tickets to this for a year.  This is one of those shows.  This is the ‘Phantom’ of the 21st century.  This is history of Broadway being made.”

Glenn, by chance, sat next to the casting director and at the end of the show leaned over and told him, “You, sir, are part of history.”

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."
