Tomi Lahren, host of Glenn Beck’s The Blaze network, argued this week that Beyonce’s tribute to Black Lives Matter and the Black Panthers at the Super Bowl was unfair to “little white girls” who like her music.
“First it was hands up, don’t shoot,” Lahren complained during her Tuesday show. “Then it was burning down buildings and looting drug stores, all the way to #OscarSoWhite. And now, even the Super Bowl halftime show has become a way to politicize and advance the notion that black lives matter more.”
According to the host, Beyonce was “ramrodding an aggressive agenda down our throats, and using fame and entertainment value to do so.”
“Congratulations, Beyonce, you made your statement,” she continued. “The Super Bowl, the most watched event on television. A game that brings Americans of every color, background and political party together. A game where black fans cheer next to white fans.”
“Good for you, you made headlines. You’re just like President Obama, Jada Pinkett Smith, Al Sharpton and so many others just can’t let America heal, keep ripping off the historical Band-Aid. Why be a cultural leader when you can play the victim, right?”
Lahren added: “White people like your music too, white people buy your songs on iTunes, memorize your lyrics and admire your talent and beauty.”
According to the host, “little white girls want to be like you just as much as little black girls do.”
“But instead of recognizing that, you rather perpetuate the great battle of the races,” Lahren ranted. “Your husband was a drug dealer. For fourteen years, he sold crack cocaine.”
“Talk about protecting black neighborhoods? Start at home,” she concluded.
In a column on Wednesday, Hip Hollywood’s Eric Berry blasted Lahren’s remarks as “total lunacy.”
“What Tomi gets, but will not admit because she’s a paid GOP troll, is that the #BLM message has always been ‘Black lives matter’. Not more. Just matter,” he wrote. “Beyonce and so many others like her are not using their voices to abolish slavery, or lobby congress to establish a 15th Amendment, so the ‘historical bandaid’ line is nutter (not to be confused with utter) nonsense.”
“Lahren’s real issue with Beyonce’s militant dance off with Bruno Mars becomes apparent: that being what gives this Black entertainer the right to publicly denounce the unjustified murders of Black civilians instead of entertaining me.”

Meghan McCain gets fact-checked on new Kavanaugh accuser — and asks if Clarence Thomas got impeached
"The View" host Whoopi Goldberg had to fact-check Meghan McCain's description of a New York Times correction in a bombshell new report about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The newspaper reported that the FBI failed to interview former Yale classmates about sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh during the confirmation process last fall, and the authors of a new book found a new accuser.
McCain pointed to an editor's note appended to the story that she believes casts doubt on the new reporting, but Goldberg asked her to clean up some of the claims she made.
The Republican Party is a ‘cult’ that isn’t even letting its own voters have a say anymore: Joe Walsh
On CNN Monday, former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) blasted the GOP for shutting down state primaries to block him from mounting a challenge to President Donald Trump.
"Look, we can’t be numb to this," said Walsh. "I know it’s difficult because this president seemingly every day attacks our democracy, but we have to be outraged. I always want to pinch myself and remind myself that this isn’t Russia. I do not live in Russia. I refuse to live in Russia. We can’t just cancel elections in this country. That’s what Donald Trump is doing. He’s literally canceling elections, and it’s very easy to be pissed off at Trump, but we’re used to this with Trump. He is a would-be dictator. He would like this to be Russia. I’ve got to tell you, I’m blown away in my disappointment with the Republican Party who is in cahoots with this president, and again, literally eliminating elections."
