Does Will Ferrell Have a Heart?

UPDATE: Will Ferrell 'Not Pursuing' 'Reagan' Movie

Will Ferrell's many memorable roles --- on Saturday Night Live and as the beloved Buddy the Elf --- have made him a household name for nearly two decades. His latest project, however, will likely divide a good chunk of his fans and upset conservatives everywhere.

Ferrell announced he will be working on a movie about Ronald Reagan, but the focus will be on the Alzheimer years. Friday on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn couldn’t help but feel the pain this could cause and asked what this says about our culture.

“I know people hate Ronald Reagan, but there's a lot of people that love Ronald Reagan,” Glenn said. “And there's a lot of people that tasted freedom for the first time in their life because of Ronald Reagan, Pope John Paul and Margaret Thatcher. But that's a political thing. But when you take on somebody -- anybody -- on Alzheimer's, have we really crossed the line as a culture to where that's funny?”

Glenn wasn’t the only one upset by the announcement, Reagan’s daughter Patti Davis wrote an open letter to Ferrell in hopes of educating the entertainer on the serious nature of what Alzheimer’s does to victims and their families.

“There was laughter in those years, but there was never humor. Alzheimer's is the ultimate pirate, pillaging a person's life and leaving an empty landscape behind. It sweeps up entire families, forcing everyone to claw their way through the overwhelming grief, confusion, helplessness and anger,” Davis said in her letter. “Perhaps for your comedy, you'd like to visit some dementia facilities. I have. I didn't find a single thing comedic there. And my hope would be that if you're a decent human being, you wouldn't either.”

Davis’ pain is palpable and Glenn couldn’t wrap his head around the thinking behind making a movie like this.

“I have to tell you, cancer patients -- you could make a comedy, a love story, a horror movie, any genre of cancer -- and that's one of the most brutal diseases there is. It ravages the human body,” Glenn said. “Cancer doesn't take who you are. It only destroys your body. Dementia and Alzheimer's, it steals you. It destroys you. Almost every other disease, you are just a prisoner of your body.”

Despite their differences in opinions, Glenn has respected Ferrell and made a passionate appeal to his humanity.

“Will Ferrell has always struck me as a nice man. We don't agree politically, but he's always struck me as a nice guy. I can't imagine ever watching Elf again and enjoying it, if this is the sick and really dark and inhuman kind of man he really is,” Glenn said.

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.

California's Board of Education voted unanimously to approve a new, multi-million-dollar Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, which will be offered statewide with many of the state's largest school districts making it a requirement for graduation. According to National Review, the curriculum is "probably the most radical, polemical, and ideologically loaded educational document ever offered up for public consideration in the free world."

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck reacted to the newly approved curriculum, calling it "the craziest, most terrifying story I have ever had to report."

Glenn read an excerpt from the National Review report describing the curriculum:

Students are to be taught that white Christian settlers committed "theocide" against indigenous tribes when they arrived in the New World by murdering Native American gods and replacing them with the Christian God. According to the curriculum, this replacement ushered in a regime defined by "coloniality, dehumanization, and genocide," and the "explicit erasure and replacement of holistic Indigeneity and humanity." But all is not lost, we are told. For students will learn that they have the power and the responsibility to build a social order defined by "countergenocide," which will eventually supplant the last vestiges of colonial Christianity and pave the way for the "regeneration of indigenous epistemic and cultural futurity."

Students first clap and chant to the god Tezkatlipoka — whom the Aztecs traditionally worshipped with human sacrifice and cannibalism — asking him for the power to be "warriors" for "social justice." Next, the students chant to the gods Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, and Xipe Totek, seeking "healing epistemologies" and "a revolutionary spirit." Huitzilopochtli, in particular, is the Aztec deity of war and inspired hundreds of thousands of human sacrifices during Aztec rule. Finally, the chant comes to a climax with a request for "liberation, transformation, [and] decolonization," after which students shout "Panche beh! Panche beh!" in pursuit of ultimate "critical consciousness."

Glenn explained some of the horrifying details of the Aztec worship traditions California's educators and administrators seek to "regenerate," including human sacrifice by the tens of thousands, cannibalism, and the severe and prolonged torture and sacrifice of children.

"Those are the gods that they [the Board of Education in California] think really need to be worshiped and brought back in our understanding because that whole Christian God was only about 'oppression'," Glenn said sardonically.

"Gang, we are in biblical-sized trouble," he added. "We are under attack from the forces of darkness unlike anything I've ever seen before ... because the soul of our nation, and the soul of children, is at stake."

Cigna — the 13th largest corporation in the U.S. measured by revenue — has recently started teaching employees critical race theory. Those lessons, however, have been "quietly" protested by some workers who leaked lesson screenshots to the Washington Examiner.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and co-host Stu Burguiere discussed a lesson on "inclusive language" — and you won't believe which phrases Cigna classifies as offensive. Do you use any of these phrases in your daily life?
