Jimmy Kimmel has turned into a sad clown who isn't funny anymore

When asked why Saturday Night Live tends to make fun of Republicans more than Democrats, Lorne Michaels, the show’s creator, replied, “Democrats tend to take it personally; Republicans think it’s funny.”

But lately, it’s different, and comedians’ hatred for conservatives just hasn’t been funny, so we’ve learned to turn the TV off. This year’s Oscars got the lowest ratings in the show’s history: People knew Jimmy Kimmel was hosting and that he’d turn the whole thing into a festival of elitist progressivism.

After all, he’s made a career out of virtue-signaling and white-knighting --- a self-avowed feminist. His respect for women is so strong that, at this year’s Oscar’s he said, with a sigh, “I wish I was a woman.”

Well, apparently his respect for women doesn’t apply to all women.

By the progressive metric, he mocked a woman --- an immigrant woman --- for the way she speaks. A micro-aggression, if you ask me. Not very PC. It’s another reminder that Kimmel is angry, bitter, cynical and tired. The sad clown is full of anger.

At this point, it’s a truism. He runs his mouth constantly because it distracts from his insecurities and allows him to release a bit of his venom. But we keep the sad clown around because occasionally he makes us laugh.

Lately, Jimmy Kimmel can’t even do that. He’s just a sad clown that isn’t funny. Leftists claim that conservatives aren’t funny. Conservatives put up with the whining and are able to laugh at something that’s funny whether they disagree with it or not. Leftists can be offended if their ideas are challenged but conservatives can’t.

Worse, if a conservative expresses offense, leftists consider that very objection offensive. At the end of the day, Kimmel’s sanctimonious tantrums don’t matter. We can change the channel. What DOES matter is the divisiveness Kimmel is enflaming with his dubious activism.

Talk-show hosts are no longer comedians or even political comedians. They’ve become activists who occasionally tell jokes, or who veil advocacy with humor. They assume a dubious sense of authority. And, unfortunately, most of them happen to be raging leftists. Luckily, most engineers, dentist, farmers and surgeons tend to be conservative, or else we’d all starve, be toothless and every bridge and overpass would have its own gender.

Humor has immeasurable power.

In all seriousness, humor has immeasurable power. The power to unite, to combat tribalism. As Mark Twain wrote, “Humor is mankind’s greatest blessing.” A person’s ability to laugh often reveals a lot about them. Laughter is one of the finest joys of life.

And, if you can share a laugh with someone, it’s hard to ignore their humanity. Lately, people don’t laugh --- not like we used to. And it’s something we need now more than ever.

Maybe it’s time for us --- all of us --- to face an insult with a grin and find a way to make the angry person smile.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
