UPDATE: Hackers promise 9/11-style attacks against moviegoers over Sony's 'The Interview'

Update: In light of the threats, Sony Pictures has cancelled plans for a theatrical release of 'The Interview'. More from TheBlaze.

In case you haven't heard, hackers have attacked Sony Pictures and released a boatload of embarrassing emails between studio executives, producers, and stars onto the internet for anyone to look at. Speculation points to North Korea being behind the hack in retaliation for the upcoming comedy 'The Interview'. The film centers around Seth Rogen and James Franco being sent by the US government to assassinate Kim Jong-Un, and (surprise, surprise), the dictator isn't too happy. The story bothers Glenn for a lot of reasons - and he reacted to some of the latest news on radio this morning.

Variety has reported that the hackers have promised to do more than just release emails and film footage. The person or persons behind the hack are now promising "September 11th"-style attacks on theaters that show 'The Interview'.

Variety posted:

Warning

We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.

Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.

The world will be full of fear.

Remember the 11th of September 2001.

We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.

(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)

Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.

All the world will denounce the SONY.

As a result of the threats, James Franco and Seth Rogen have cancelled appearances to promote the film and the New York premiere has also been scrapped.

The Department of Homeland Security has found no "credible intelligence" of an attack.

"I'm bothered by this story in 600 different ways. Sony has been hacked by what appears to be North Korea. I'm not sure I buy that," Glenn said.

Glenn wasn't convinced that North Korea was capable of doing this kind of cyberattack.

"Because of the movie 'The Interview' which mocks North Korea, Sony has been hacked into. That's the story. They've been releasing all of this information on Hollywood, on the celebrities and everything else that show them to be racist, hypocrites, and fools. And that's comes as some sort of a shock to people," Glenn joked.

"And now because they're saying that we will go after anybody who does business with Sony, now Sony is saying if you need to drop 'The Interview' and you're a movie theater chain, you can drop the movie if you'd like. And so they are. So now that movie is being dropped because of, apparently, North Korean terrorists."

"You have right to say 'I don't want to take this on,' but isn't that kind of the terrorists winning kind of thing?" Glenn said.

"I don't think that they can go and blow up a bunch of movie theaters on the premiere of 'The Interview', but if you're a movie theater company, some people are going to believe it," Stu said.

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
