De Niro at da Tony's gets obscenely political

I was just about to ask "who watched the Tony's last night?" but just playing the law of averages I kind of doubt the two people in America that actually did watch are reading this right now. But if you did, you might have been a little confused when Robert De Niro walked to the mic. De Niro walks out, you hear a couple cheers, then the audio goes completely dead. When the sound comes back up, De Niro is raising his fists in the air as the crowd commences to give a wild standing ovation.

Did De Niro just wow Radio City Music Hall with a masterful rendition of Henry V? Maybe he said this:

The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry "God for Harry, England, and Saint George!"

That surely would have brought the Broadway-loving crowd to their feet, but — yeah — that's not what he said. Want to know what he really said? It may not be in Shakespeare's unrhymed iambic pentameter, but this is the new poetry for the leftist tribe. It went something like this.

Quote:

"I'm going to say this, f*** Trump. It's no longer just down with Trump, it's f*** Trump."

Yep, that's what brought the crowd to their feet. So if you're one of the millions of people that voted for the president, do you switch off the TV, or were you not even watching to begin with? Apparently Robert De Niro — and all the other Broadway and Hollywood elites sitting in the theater — are so butt hurt that their friend, Hillary Clinton, lost the election that they could give a flying crap about half the country.

It really is amazing how these people can't figure out how arrogant and insulting they are to middle America.

Wasn't it brave that De Niro found the courage to stand up in front of that hostile crowd and boldly declare his defiance toward the president? What courage! Give me a break. It really is amazing how these people can't figure out how arrogant and insulting they are to middle America.

These award shows are always the same. It's a gathering of millionaires, who just left their $20 million homes, who can't wait to "high five" each other over how awesome they are while arrogantly insulting millions of hard working Americans. Factory workers, ranchers, farmers... I'm sure they'd LOVE to see a Broadway play, but who would go now?

I read a passage in Variety this morning describing last night's award show and it cracked me up. Quote:

Ostensibly a celebration of theater, the Tonys were an opportunity for Broadway to talk up the virtues of inclusion and diversity, while also drawing attention to gay rights, gun control, and the challenges facing immigrants.

Umm... yeah. And you wonder why no one watches these things anymore. Congratulations, Broadway and Hollywood. Pretty soon the only audience you'll have is two states out of fifty, your moms and dads and the rest of your colleagues.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?
