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!

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
