Too late? Jim Carrey 'apologizes' to assault rifle owners

Weeks after he went on a Twitter blitz absolutely trashing assault rifle owners, calling them ‘heartless mother****ers’, actor Jim Carrey has tweeted an apology. Carrey wrote that he doesn’t ‘fear’ gun owners – actually he claims to ‘love’ them – even though he still disagrees with their beliefs.

Yesterday, Carrey tweeted:

He quickly followed it up a clarifying message:

“He tweets he's a little sorry,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Well, now I want to go see his movie. How about you guys?”

“He's sorry because studio executives are saying, ‘You just lost 100 million NRA fans from going to your movie. They are not going to now,’” Pat explained. “A lot of tweets back to him were ‘Too little too late’; ‘We won't support your career anymore’; ‘Did you donate those profits from Kick Ass 2 yet, since you feel so strongly about it?’”

Kick Ass 1 and the sequel, Kick Ass 2, are extremely violent movies, and despite appearing in the first and second film, Carrey has since denounced Kick Ass 2 because “recent events” caused him to reevaluate the film’s themes.

“He's such a loser hypocrite,” Glenn said. “He's really a dope. You don't just trip your way into a gun stance that is that strong.”

One of the more interesting aspects of Carrey’s apology is that he claims to not ‘fear’ assault rifle owners, which would lead one to question why he disagrees with them.

“If you don't fear them, why don't you agree with them,” Stu asked. “Your whole point is that regular people will go buy assault weapons and God knows what will happen. Well, if you don't fear them, what's the problem with the assault weapons? That's our point: I shouldn't be fearing people who can buy these things because they are law abiding citizens in over 99.8% of the cases. You can't trust everyone with a gun, but you can't make those determinations. It is not the product's fault.”

“He's a dope,” Glenn reiterated. “Jim Carrey's career is over, and we are sad. We are sad. We'll let you know where the funeral and where to send flowers, but his career is completely over. I love this. Jim, let me just say this… So Jim Carrey, I don't agree with you, nor do I fear you, nor do I love you, and I don't really have any outrage, but I'm not going to ever see your movie. Just want to let you know.”

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
