Health-Care Overhaul Changes to Start Taking Effect Today

"Saturday Night Live" alum Rob Schneider dominated the trending topics on Twitter this week after sharing an emotional story on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to illustrate how our country is taking a "step back into that darkness" and why he is "willing to lose it all" to fight for his "children and the country they're going to live in."

Schneider could have stayed a Hollywood liberal, with all the privileges that entails, or at least stayed silent. But instead, he chose to speak out and push back against the "stranglehold" of the Democratic Party after seeing "that it was no longer protecting the rights of the individual."

"Are you willing to lose it all for what you believe? Glenn asked Schneider.

"Absolutely," Schneider answered. "Because if we don't have it, then we have nothing. ... I don't care about my career any more. I care about my children and the country that they're going to live in," he added.

"My hope is this. My hope is a beautiful story from a chaplain in England," Schneider explained.

"When the American flyers came over in the early days of World War II ... their friends were getting blown out of the sky. They would go over in the bombers and half would come back or two-thirds would come back ... and there was one particularly awful week or two weeks where there was a very high percentage of these pilots getting blown out of the sky."

"They went to the Air Force Chapel, and a pilot said 'Our friends are dying. Why should we do this?' [...] The chaplain ... said, 'Humanity has come out of the dark ages. We've come out of where people get burned at the stake, people believe and people go along with this. There's a darkness that we have come out of into more of an enlightened period, a freer period. [...] This is a step back into that darkness. It is the darkest parts of humanity, and we need to stand up for that now. And that requires this.' So they all flew."

Schnieder went on to add, "I do feel a sacrifice that's required, and we gotta do it because we were lucky, man, we grew up in a boom time in America."

A video clip posted on Twitter has been viewed nearly 2 million times as of this writing. Some people, such as the Daily Wire's Gina Carano, actually watched the just-over-two-minute video and thus understood what Schneider was saying. "I’ll fly with ya,” tweeted the former "Mandalorian” actress.

Predictably, the ignorant liberal mob did what ignorant liberal mobs do, grabbing their virtual torches and pitchforks and joining the echo chamber of unhinged, unoriginal mockery. Some "roasted" Schneider's career, others got hung up on whether or not he's a Trump supporter (because absolutely everything is still about former President Donald Trump and apparently will be until the end of time), and a few even decided to drag Adam Sandler into the fracas for no other reason than the two comedians are friends and "frequently work together."

Schneider responded on Wednesday by tweeting a photo of the crowd at his stand-up comedy show, complete with the caption: "I prioritize supporting a country that provides the same Freedoms for my children that made my career possible. This legacy to me is more important to me than the next chapter of my career. Love, Rob."

The blurring of government, Big Tech, Big Finance, and left-wing ideology has created a "woke industrial complex" that does not tolerate dissent. So if conservatives can't participate in the economy without being flagged or harassed, it's time to create a new "parallel economy" where everyone is welcome.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck sits down with fellow pioneers of the parallel economy to discuss what's being created and what must happen next: Entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, whose company Strive Asset Management is sending an ultimatum to woke investors like BlackRock; "The Right Stuff" co-founder Daniel Huff, who's creating a dating app without the leftist nonsense; and BlazeTV contributor Eric July, whose new comic book company Rippaverse Comics is taking Marvel and DC by storm.

President Joe Biden set off more than a few perv-o-meter alarms on Tuesday when he suddenly stopped in the middle of a speech about America being "safer" to make creepy comments to a 9-year-old (presumably a little girl) in the audience.

At an event in Pennsylvania, the president, who once promised to bring America together, unite our people, and unite our nation, prattled on aimlessly about "MAGA Republicans" and the never-ending horrors of the January 6 "insurrection."

He taunted " brave right-wing Americans" who believe guns are an important deterrent against government overreach.

He claimed "the Mexicans" have "real problems" with "gun trafficking across the southern border, into Mexico."

President Biden even shared a bizarre, meandering story about ... well, we're not sure what it was about, but it sounded pretty darn racist.

But the creepiest moment of the whole insufferable event came when the president suddenly stopped his super unifying speech to ask a child in the audience, “How are you, baby? How old are you? How old are you? ... almost double figures!"

So creepy indeed!

President Biden also told the most hilarious joke (you've heard a thousand times before) and a few complete whoppers that were almost as funny as his complete lack of knowledge about guns and ammunition, as Glenn Beck and Stu Burguiere discussed on "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday.

'I literally PRAYED ... don't do this': Rob Schneider says SNL was 'over' at THIS cringe-worthy moment

Rob Schneider is a comedy legend, with a career spanning "Saturday Night Live," films like “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo” and “The Benchwarmers,” and a stand-up act that’s still going strong. But perhaps one of the most courageous things he’s ever done was admitting to the world that he’s not a woke leftist.

Schneider joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to tell his story, including how listening to Glenn helped him go from a Hollywood liberal to a conservative who would rather be ostracized than stay silent. He also detailed the sad state of comedy in the woke era, how SNL changed since he left, and the moment he knew his "old show" was officially "over."

“I hate to crap on my old show,” Schneider told Glenn.

"But when I saw, when Hillary Clinton lost ... and then when Kate McKinnon went out there on 'Saturday Night Live,' on a cold opening ... dressed as Hillary Clinton, and she starts playing 'Hallelujah,' I literally prayed, please have a joke at the end. Don’t do this. Please don’t go down there. And there was no joke at the end, and I went, it’s over. It’s over. It's not gonna come back."

Schneider was referring to the first “SNL” episode after Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election to Donald Trump in 2016, prompting an emotional McKinnon to open the show by performing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."

Content warning: The following video has been known to cause nausea, gagging, or retching for some audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.

"You can take the comedic indoctrination process happening with each of the late-night hosts, and you can exchange them with each other. That's how you know it's not interesting any more. There's not an independent voice any more," Schneider said. "It's all indoctrination by comedic imposition."

Schneider goes on to tell Glenn why he believes “funny is coming back” and shares the best advice a comedian ever gave him. Watch "The Glenn Beck Podcast" below.
