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.

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."

Have you noticed an insane number of companies "going woke" lately? There's a big reason for why this is happening NOW, and it's not just virtue-signaling. Big corporations, one by one, are pulling the trigger on an initiative that has been in the works for about a decade.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the framework that was built and inserted into business schools all across the countries. Critical race theory, gender, and "social justice" were given a higher priority than just doing good business.

Glenn has the documents that reveal what's coming to YOUR business or the company you work for and what will happen to companies that don't comply. And what started out as an indoctrination at the university level is now being taught in public schools K-12. They're teaching our kids to be equity activists right under our noses, and the indoctrination is working.

First, President Joe Biden nixed the Keystone XL Pipeline, driving the price at the pump through the roof. Now, Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg has floated the idea of taxing every mile you drive as a way to pay for Biden's massive infrastructure spending proposal. So much for buying an electric car to save money at the pump. It's almost as if they want you to feel the coming pain as deeply as possible.
