Those who think Cosby's Academy expulsion was courageous are in for a rude awakening

Yesterday, we learned where Hollywood, with its dainty preaching and glamorous fist-waving, draws the line. In a typically dramatic, though outlandishly late show of force, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science expelled Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski. “It’s time,” they decided, “to battle sexual abuse.” Best of all, they said it with a straight face, unaware of the irony.

In a statement, the board cited the organization's “Standards of Conduct” as the basis for the two men’s expulsions. The statement also noted that "The Board continues to encourage ethical standards that require members to uphold the Academy's values of respect for human dignity.”

Only four people have been expelled in the Academy’s 91-year history. Cosby, Polanski, Harvey Weinstein and Carmine Caridi. We’re familiar with the crimes of the first three. What did Caridi do? Was it murder? Rape? No, in 2004, he emailed a friend an early preview of a confidential film and it wound up online. Something about lumping those four crimes together makes a farce of all of it.

At next year’s Oscars, you can expect them to parade this ruling around like a badge of courage.

Because Polanski has been on the run for decades. And he has been nominated three times since his 1977 guilty plea for “unlawful sex” with a minor, also known as the child molestation and rape of a 13-year-old. In 2003, he even won an Oscar, Best Director for The Pianist.

At next year’s Oscars, you can expect them to parade this ruling around like a badge of courage. Really, it’s a scarlet letter, announcing to the world that hypocrisy pays well.

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.
