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.

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.

WARNING: Here's who's REALLY behind 'spooky, right-wing' extremism

Over the past year, the left has tried to paint conservatives as "spooky, right-wing" extremists who want to destroy the nation. But true conservatives know that's not true. However, there is a dangerous global movement that fits this "spooky" definition — masquerading as "right-wing" — and it's gaining momentum. It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," author and award-winning expert on the radical right Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum joined Glenn to define Traditionalism and explain why it's exactly how the left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Teitelbaum said Traditionalism is the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century" in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money.

COMING SATURDAY: The REAL Extremism Is NOT ‘Conservative’ | Benjamin Teitelbaum | Ep 102

Did you realize that there's a group of incredibly powerful people from all over the world who are praying for the apocalypse? It's called Traditionalism, with a capital "T." Professor Benjamin Teitelbaum describes it as the "most transformative political movement of the early 21st century." He writes about it in his book, "War for Eternity," which Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald called "an indispensable text" for understanding "the most profound and tumultuous political shifts defining societies on every continent." It's a bizarre story, involving Steve Bannon, Hinduism, Hitler, mysticism, Aleksandr Dugin, the Constitution, and tons and tons of money. And it's exactly how the Left wants to paint conservatives — but that couldn't be further from the truth.

Gov. Kristi Noem DEFENDS against claims she’s ‘CAVING’ to NCAA on Title IX

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem had a tense interview with Fox News' Tucker Carlson this week over claims she caved to the NCAA. Rather than signing a bill banning transgender girls and women from competing against biological females in sports, Noem returned it to the legislature for 'style and form' changes, arguing to Carlson the current version 'wouldn't solve the problem.' Noem joins Glenn to defend her decision, saying conservatives must be 'strategic' in the fight to defend Title IX.

Is FL Gov. Ron DeSantis capable of winning over Trump voters in 2024?

As critical race theory spreads across the country, California recently has approved a new 'ethnic studies' curriculum for K-12 students that are chock full of it. But at least one state is standing up against this poison. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sharply condemned this push to "teach kids to hate our country and to hate each other based on race." So, could a 2024 presidential run be in his future? And, if he does run, will he win over Trump voters?
