Default Advice on Coolant Air Bleeding

Hoping you guys can help me figure this out. Car is uphill on driveway and on ramps.

Drained the block and radiator coolant. Let the car sit until relatively cold. With ignition on and heat full blast, I poured 50/50 into the expansion tank until the level stopped dropping. Turned car on with cap and bleeder off. Revved a few times, turned off and checked level. Put cap back on, left bleeder off, turned back on and let it warm up. I'm expecting to see coolant seep out of bleeder and purging air but it starts violently shooting hot steam. Car starts over heating so I shut it off. The upper hose is super hot and lower hose is ambient temperature. I tried driving it a bit after it cooled down but temps shot up again, tried cracking open bleeder valve and hot steam shot through again. The fan switch side of the radiator isn't getting hot either, so fan isn't turning on. I have a stewart pump installed but it seems like coolant isn't getting through the radiator? Any ideas?

Dumb me actually made a post on this a year ago. Took some advice from one of the responses and I'm good to go. My apologies for creating this post in such a rush.
