White men continue to dominate amidst hypocritical woke Hollywood

And the award goes to…Hollywood! For their tremendous and self-congratulatory work on Virtue Signaling! Yes, virtue signaling. Because, according to a recent quantitative content analysis by the University of Southern California, as part of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, the film industry is still dominated by the very white males who have fervently championed diversity and #OscarsSoWhite. It would appear that their pageantry is, in a word, disingenuous.

The USC report, titled "Inequality in 1,100 Popular Films," is an analysis of the top 100 movies between 2007 and 2017, with attention to the diversity of each movie's cast. The researchers concluded that, in the ten-year period—a ten year period, as you know, fraught with revolutionary-minded war cries for diversity, award show after award show full of moronic rants about intersectionality and raging female empowerment—there was "no significant statistical improvement in the representation of women, LGBT, or people of color."

The report notes: "In 2017, 70.7% of the 4,454 speaking characters were white, 12.1% were black, 6.2% were Hispanic, 4.8% were Asian, 3.9% were mixed-race, 1.7% were of Middle Eastern descent, and less than 1% each were coded as Native American or Native Hawaiian."

At the end of the day, most of us just want to see a movie. To be entertained. To be carried away by a story.

The study found that 99% of the speaking roles in 2017's films went to straight, cisgender actors and actresses, while 81 of the 100 films had no LGBT characters whatsoever.

Of course, the study itself is driven by the very identity politics that have run wild in Hollywood, the exact ideas that undergird the hysteria of so many acceptance speeches and Twitter rants. At the end of the day, most of us just want to see a movie. To be entertained. To be carried away by a story. To fall in love with the wonder and thrill of a good movie. Most of us don't care about the color or gender of the actors on the screen.

If they act well, if they transport us to that magical place, then we enjoy them. Isn't that the way it should be?

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
