Real Men Discussing Real Issues: The Beyonce Controversy

Evidently, Beyonce rules everything --- even conservative talk radio.

"I can't believe I'm sitting in a room with three other guys, and the discussion for the last five minutes has been an argument over Beyonce," Glenn said Thursday on radio.

That's right, the boys got into a heated discussion about the so-called Beyonce awards controversy, brewed up in 2009 when Taylor Swift won Video of the Year at the MTV Music Video Awards rather than Queen Bey. (Thank you, Kanye West.) The same issue is plaguing her after this year's Grammy Awards, with Adele coming away as the night's big winner.

"This controversy about her not winning is so bogus," co-host Pat Gray said. "Santana put it best when he said, 'She didn't win because she can't sing.'"

Thank you, Carlos Santana. Finally, somebody said it.

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

GLENN: I can't believe I'm sitting in a room with three other guys, and the discussion for the last five minutes has been an argument over Beyonce

PAT: Yeah. Because this controversy about her not winning is so bogus.

Santana put it best when he said, "She didn't win because she can't sing."

JEFFY: Thank you. Thank you, Carlos Santana.

PAT: Adele is talented. That's why she won. And it's not like Beyonce has never won a Grammy award. She's won 22. She's the second most awarded woman of all time.

JEFFY: So it's almost like she's forgotten at the Grammys. No one even knows who she is.

PAT: Almost. Almost.

STU: It's also like the name of her album is Lemonade. You don't name your Grammy-winning album after a kid's drink.

PAT: Lemonade. That's true. That they can buy on every corner for 25 cents. Yeah, you don't do that.

GLENN: May I just say, all I said was, "I can't believe I'm sitting in a room with three adult men who are fighting over Beyonce," and look what happened.

PAT: And there it is.

Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one. Dan details what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Parler exec speaks out against ‘unfair’ Big Tech throttle

Big Tech isn't making it easy for organizations outside of the left's coalition to survive. Amy Peikoff is the Chief Policy Officer for Parler — the social media platform now throttled by Amazon, Apple, and Google. She joins Glenn to discuss the recent moves made against Parler and how the company is fighting to move forward: "We're doing everything we can to save civil discourse on the Internet. I promise: We're on it."

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.
