Were pro-U.S.A. fans booed at big boxing match?

Were fans booed for chanting “U-S-A” during the Floyd Mayweather versus Canelo Alverez fight Saturday night? Based on the videos that have been widely circulated, it’s hard to tell.

The chant begins at about the 2-minute mark:

Reports have been mixed about the nature of the boos.

USA Today, mentioned the incident in its coverage of the event writing, “Alvarez appears to be growing frustrated. Chants of ‘U-S-A’ broke out, as the Mexican contingent booed in reply.” The paper later clarified that the boos from the “Mexican contingent” may have been in response to Alverez’s poor performance.

Sports Illustrated, meanwhile, had a slightly different take: “A U-S-A chant rings from the rafters. Floyd moving around the ring. Jabs again. Tags Canelo with a right hand as Canelo charges in. Canelo still throwing. Crowd boos a little.”

On radio this morning, Glenn, Pat, and Stu struggled to hear the boos at all.

“Well, the allegation, I don't hear it that much but the allegation is that while some of the crowd chanted ‘USA, USA,’ the Mexican contingent in the audience booed them,” Pat explained. “Now, the only question was on the story, were they booing the poor performance of their guy or were they booing the chanting of USA, USA? I don't know. I didn't really hear it. You didn't either?”

“I don't hear it at all,” Glenn agreed.

When you put the incident in the context of other sporting events, it’s really not all that scandalous. In many cities and states, allegiance to a particular team is quite sacred and sporting events are filled with chants and boos depending on the situation.

If the fans at the fight were in fact booing the USA chant, Glenn had less of a problem with the booing itself and more of a problem with the larger context.

“Let's not take ourselves so seriously at a sporting event. But I actually think that people are serious when they boo ‘USA,’ and you're in our house,” Glenn explained. “You know, I wouldn't mind it if we went down, and I think it would be rude – you go down to Mexico and you're shouting, you know, USA, USA, USA and they booed us, I would be like, ‘Well, we deserve it.’”

“Sporting events, though, cross those lines a lot of times,” Stu countered. “The point is, though, that the United States, if they cared enough about the sport, which they obviously don't, [boxing has] been dying for years. If they cared enough about boxing, they would show up in enough numbers that this wouldn't be a factor. The point is that the Mexicans seem to care more about the sport than we do. So they get there and they get enough seats to be able to, you know, make themselves heard.”

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."
