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.

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.
