Was Katy Perry’s Grammy performance some kind of satanic ritual?

The most talked about moment of Sunday’s Grammy Awards was the wedding ceremony for 34 hetero and homosexual couples that took place live onstage. But the wedding paled in comparison to the part of the program Glenn found most shocking.

“I personally took it as a slap in the face for anybody who happens to believe in traditional marriage and the traditional values that have been taught in our churches. I think that's what it is,” Glenn said of the church-like imagery used during the ceremony. “Now, that's me being very cynical. So hopefully that's not it… But there were other things on the Grammys that are much more disturbing.”

So what performance did Glenn find most shocking?

During the first hour of the broadcast, pop star Katy Perry delivered a performance of her song "Dark Horse" that harkened some type of satanic ritual or witchcraft. The act featured Perry being seemingly burned at the stake – swinging around a witch’s broom situated in a circle of flames as dancers in giant horn headpieces danced around the stage. Her costume featured a light up cross-like symbol.

“Everybody focused on what the Grammys did with the gay marriage thing. Did anybody notice Katy Perry's performance? Did anybody really look at Katy Perry's performance? You look at Katy Perry's performance and you start to see things that are extraordinarily disturbing,” Glenn said. “It is so normal now to see literal Satan worship, to see unspeakable things on television in performances and award show that most of America just yawned. It wasn't the big topic of conversation all across the country yesterday. That's fascinating to me.”

While Stu argued that Perry may have actually been cast as the “good person” in this battle – resembling a Joan of Arc-type character – Glenn questioned why the Grammy’s would even chose to feature such adult themes in the early hours of its broadcast.

“So I mean even if this isn't really truly the glorification of the dark side of things… think of how many kids watched this entire performance with their families,” Glenn said. “They watched Beyonce. They watched this.”

For those who didn’t watch the telecast, Beyonce and Jay Z opened the show with an overtly sexual performance of her song “Drunk in Love.”

“So now what's more disturbing? I mean are we still trying to shock each other… Are we really still trapped in the ‘80s where we think this is going to sell records or whatever,” Glenn asked. “Is this really where we are as a society, or is there something more to this? Are we now a society that has gone entirely off the rails? I contend we're a society that has gone off the rails. And no address in Washington D.C. is going to put us back on the rails. We have to put ourselves back on the rails… Make sure you're on the right side of life. Make sure that you are aware of what you should be afraid of.”

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."
