Perish the thought: Actress Kirsten Dunst under fire for comments about the roles of men and women

‘Feminists’ and ‘gender experts’ are up in arms over actress Kirsten Dunst’s comments about gender roles in a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK. After stating, “you need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman,” Dunst has been called everything from “kind of dumb” to an “insufferable person” by female writers around the web.

In the May cover story, Dunst opens up about the subject of gender to the magazine:

"I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued," she says. "We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking – it’s a valuable thing my mum created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work…"

“Can you imagine? What a buffoon to think that women could stay home and take care of their kids if they wanted to,” Pat joked on radio this morning. “We all know it's far better for your kids to be raised at a daycare by strangers. We know that. That's proven, right? The debate is over on that. So shut up, Kirsten. You buffoon. How stupid.”

As TheBlaze reported, Dunst’s comments touched off a bit of a firestorm. Jezebel writer Erin Gloria Ryan called the actress “kind of dumb” in an article published earlier this month.

“I’m not going to couch this much because Kirsten Dunst is not paid to write gender theory so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that she’s kind of dumb about it,” Ryan wrote, “just as I wouldn’t be surprised if Gloria Steinem sucked at convincingly and heartbreakingly playing a mysterious oversexed teen who kills herself in a Sofia Coppola movie.”

“Who is paid to write about gender theory,” Pat asked sincerely.

Uproxx’s Stacy Ritzen, meanwhile, believes Dunst is an “insufferable person,” and she laid out her deep-seated hatred for the actress in an article entitled “Kirsten Dunst Thinks That Women Should Know Their Place Is In The Home.”

“Luckily, my hate for the most part has been not completely unwarranted, because over the years Kirsten Dunst has continued to be somewhat of an insufferable person, as evidenced by this interview she recently gave with Harper’s Bazaar, in which she has some Very Important Opinions on gender roles,” Ritzen explained. “So, I guess my marriage is doomed to fail because I don’t have kids and write d**k jokes for a living and my husband is more of a cat person than a dog person. THANKS, KIRSTEN DUNST.”

The vitriol is simply astounding.

“She made a point about [if] women choose to be women,” Stu concluded. “And that's too far over the line.”

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
