Glenn reviews "The Imitation Game" starring Benedict Cumberbatch

Over the weekend, Glenn and Tania got to watch one of the holiday seasons most anticipated new films - 'The Imitation Game'. The story centers around Alan Turning, a forgotten hero of World War 2 who helped cracked a secret Nazi code and whose work with computers helped lay the foundation for computer science and artificial intelligence. What did Glenn think of the film? Spoiler alert: he LOVED it. On radio this morning, Glenn reviewed the film and revealed how a tribute to the film's protagonist can be found in something you probably see everyday.

Below is Glenn's review from Facebook this morning:

The Imitation Game

Few stories are as inspiring and embarrassing as the story of Alan Turning. His is a name that effects all of us yet, no one knows it. A salute to him, some say, is hidden in plain sight in one of the worlds most popular logos. Once you know his story, you will never forget it and when you know two simple facts left out by the film you will forever be eager to tell his story.

What we chose to tell in a short chapter in the book Dreamers and Deceivers was only hinted at in the films epilogue. But what we did both tell is the story of the man who could see and do the impossible: build the worlds first computer. But the film told the dark side of the way we paid him back.

I will not to spoil the mystery of the film as my wife enjoyed trying to figure out the mystery element of this movie, but let's leave it at we have come a long way. I do not believe in social justice or any earthy justice as I believe man is too flawed to count on real justice in all cases. But it is always refreshing to see justice served as it has been in this case. What makes it even sweeter is the lack of guile, anger or judgement on him or the greatest generation. It just is and the viewer is left on his own to celebrate how far we have come.

I choose to view Alan's story as a victory that men, at some point, do get it right and congratulate the Weinstein group, producers, directors an writers for setting the record straight and putting this mans story where it belongs.

It is well written, well acted and the story allows the viewer to unwrap the story at their own pace just like all great Christmas gifts. Make no mistake, for history lovers or just those who love great movies this is just that- a gift.

Next, let's correct history on Tesla.

A must see. Opens this week.

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
