Beck denies role in new "Spider-Man" ending

No, Glenn didn’t see the show for a third time in a single week. But has he cursed the “greatest show” he’s ever seen? According to news reports, it seems likely.

For anyone living under a rock, Glenn’s Spider-Man love has now appeared in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Entertainment Weekly. He first went to the show on Saturday and raved about it for a good thirty minutes on radio this week. He then went to the show again where he met U2’s Bono (Glenn does not own a U2 album) and suggested a new ending to director Julie Taymor.

Well, it seems like Glenn may have cursed the show that he loves so much. Following his visit to the show and suggestion of a new ending, news came out this morning that the official opening has been pushed back to March 15th.

Pat read the story, “So Rick [show spokesperson] this is Wednesday, all right?  All systems are absolutely go for the planned February 7th opening.  Then who goes Wednesday night and tells Bono, ‘Hey, I think you did a great show but you need a new ending.’  You need blah, blah-blah, blah-blah.”

“On Thursday evening Rick said the decision to delay the show was made after a meeting with the creative team during the day on Thursday and now they're changed the ending and it's not going to open until I think March 15th,” Pat said.

Glenn attempted to defend himself by saying, “It's a good ending.  It's a good ending.”

So let’s lay out the timeline. Show set to open in early February. Glenn goes to the show on Saturday, loves it, and goes again on Wednesday. Meets Bono and Julie Taymor Wednesday night and suggests a new ending. Then Thursday morning they decide to re-do the ending and push the show opening to March (editor’s note: I already bought tickets to the show in a few weeks. Thanks Glenn!).

Glenn was glad to see the media was so focused his love of Spider-Man than his analysis of Francis Fox Piven:

“Last night somebody said, the Wall Street Journal is covering your review of Spider-Man again.  …  How many people in -- this is all they have to do. In a week when the world is burning to the ground, check Frances Fox Piven... the world is burning down and all of these journalists in I don't know how many stories have checked now to see, A, if I'm an investor.  And one of the papers, maybe it was the Wall Street Journal last night, checked to see if I had been paying for my tickets.”

Yes, Glenn did pay for his tickets both nights. He is not an investor (he wishes he was).

But – and please don’t alert the media about this – he did get a FREE t-shirt!

UPDATE - Glenn issues comment denying role in rumored changes.

Beck defends himself by saying, "When I suggested a simple reprise to allow the audience to really feel the message, Julie Taymor excitedly explained that they were already working on a very complex ending including a reprise. She and Bono described the working plans, at worst I just pointed out that their new ending was genius.”

Beck went on to say that "Spider-Man will do to Broadway what Hitchcock did for suspense".

We at glennbeck.com have heard it all. “Blah blah blah, 8th wonder of the world." We also may or may not have purchased our tickets after his first recommendation and now may or may not see the new ending.

Thanks again Beck.

The long-awaited New York Attorney General's report on the sexual harassment allegations against Gov. Andrew Cuomo is out — and it is bad for Cuomo. The Democratic AG concluded that the Governor did sexually harass multiple women during his time in office.

On Tuesday's radio program, Glenn Beck questioned is the AG's report would be enough for Democrats to condemn him and call for his resignation? This is what the #MeToo movement was started for, Glenn noted, if Gov. Cuomo doesn't resign quickly, that says a whole lot about today's Democratic Party.

Critical race theory: The education trap

The fall semester isn't far away. If you aren't prepared for that, someone else is. Predatory behavior. The most important takeaway from this piece is, whatever is happening on campuses right now is what is going to play out through the rest of society in about 30 years. We're seeing it right now with Critical Race Theory.

It started on the campus. It started in the classroom. And our children are set to be the next victims in the cultural warfare for a nightmare that seems like it will never end.

Colleges are manipulating the system.

It's a little ironic that colleges are overflowing with Marxist professors who preach the Gospel of Karl Marx in their classrooms, because academia in America is the perfect example of capitalist achievement. If anything, colleges are manipulating the system in a way that should make Marxists furious. And they hurt the people that Marxism is supposed to rescue.

Colleges are an enterprise. They are Big Business. It means nothing to them to send thousands of students into debt—not if it means the campus will get a new fountain or another office for the Diversity and Inclusion department.

They'll never admit it, but a big part of their problem is that they have put so much into the myth of progress. They can't even admit that it's a myth. Because it's useful to them.

Roger Scruton once said:

Hence the invocations of "progress", of "growth", of constant "advance" towards the goal which, however, must remain always somewhere in the future.

In reality, they don't give a damn about actual progress.

That's how they have turned academia into instruments of social engineering. They use college to change society.

Their purpose is no longer educational. It's social. They're using the classrooms to cause social change.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere were joined by Pat Gray to discuss "woke" Olympic athletes.

In this clip, the guys discussed how "bravely" some athletes are for threatening to protest the national anthem, for twerking on stage, and for showing off how woke they are.

Glenn reminded America of actual bravery at the Olympics when Jesse Owens won the gold medal at the Berlin Olympics. "He [Owens] was oppressed," Glenn said.

Political commentator Bill O'Reilly joined the Glenn Beck radio program on Friday made an important prediction about President Joe Biden's chance of reelection in 2024.

O'Reilly told Glenn that former President Donald Trump was brought down because of COVID. "if COVID had not appeared, O'Reilly stated, "he [Trump] would have won reelection."

O'Reilly went on to predict that like Trump, President Joe Biden would lose reelection because of COVID. People saw a president who could not put out an intelligent fact-based message about COVID and people will remember that," he explained.

O'Reilly later added that "Trump and Biden are one-termers because of COVID."
