Add Jim Carrey to your list of Hollywood hypocrites

Bruce Almighty, aka Jim Carrey, decided to extended his all-knowingness across America last night when he went on a ridiculously uninformed anti-gun rant on Twitter after releasing a awkwardly unfunny anti-gun video on Funny or Die. Don't you just love it when actors leave their field of expertise to "educate" the public?

Carrey published what he considers a "song" on FunnyorDie.com titled "Cold Dead Hand", in which he calls gun owners "m-fers" who are "unwilling to bend for the safety of our kids." Carrey's song, "Cold Dead Hands", mocked not just gun owners, but Charlton Heston. Here's a quick a sample of the lyrics:

‘It takes a cold dead hand to decide to pull the trigger. It takes a cold dead heart, and as near as I can figure, with your cold dead aim, you’re trying to prove your [blank] is bigger. But we know: Your chariot may not be swingin’ low.

Twitchy.com noted that the song also talks about how Heston couldn't get to heaven because the angels couldn't pry his gun out of his "cold dead hands".

...that's nice.

Carrey announce the release on Twitter which, of course, lead to a long twitter rant directed at conservatives and the "Second Amendment crowd". As we've seen in the past, that didn't go very well for Carrey who was quickly bombarded with tweets from conservatives all across the country who highlighted his hypocrisy and lack of knowledge on guns and the Second Amendment.

Stick to what you know Jimmy.

This morning on radio, Glenn couldn't help but notice that Jim Carrey waited until after his movie crashed and burned at the box office to start trying making headlines on controversial topics. He suggested maybe Carrey thought he could take the Piers Morgan approach and get the 80,000 people who actually watch Piers's show to go to the movies.

Probably not, but best of luck. Either way, while Carrey's comments may have offended a few, he went after a crowd that appreciates and respects his right to free speech. Like Glenn noted this morning, he's glad knows Carrey's true colors, and won't be supporting his work in the future.

"I'm really happy that he's made his choice, and he made it out loud. So you know, i can write off…I mean we're writing off almost every movie that's out there. I just can't take anymore. I'm not going to line these people's pockets anymore. I'm not going to do it. and I'm not a boycott guy — i never have been," Glenn said. "I just choose not to go to his movies anymore. I'm not going to enrich these people anymore."

Of course, Jim Carrey doesn't think guns are okay, which obviously means he would never play in any role that promotes guns or makes guns look "cool"…right?

Wrong.

Conservative activist Caleb Bonham highlights just a handful of examples of Jim Carrey's gun hypocrisy in the video below:

Glenn also noted that, ironically, he happens to own the gun of Charlton Heston that Carry refers to in the song. And it's a safe assumption that the gun will make an appearance on tonight's broadcast. Start a 14 day free trial to watch tonight @ 5pm ET or on demand!

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
