Daily Wire podcast host Matt Walsh said GOP establishment needs to “step aside” and explained why calls to end the boycott against Anheuser-Busch after Bud Light’s partnership with biological male trans activist Dylan Mulvaney were wrong.
“The Matt Walsh Show” host on Monday provided a brutal assessment of the Republican establishment, who he said was giving an assist to the beer company by telling conservatives to back down from the boycott over fears that it could stop the flow of donor cash to the GOP.
Walsh said boycotting leftwing fashion companies, cosmetics brands, and Nike — which have gone woke — wouldn’t have an effect. But when conservatives decided partnering with Mulvaney was a bridge too far, they were dealing with a company that could be affected by the decision to stop buying their product.
“Bud Light on the other hand does need our business, so they do or should care what we think,” the host said. “This gives us power that we can choose to actually use for a change or we can sit back quietly and absorb the insult like we always do. And to that second option I say hell no.”
“This is what the GOP establishment and its donor class don’t understand,” he added. “We are sick and tired of this. We are sick and tired of watching as our culture is claimed piece by piece by madness and degeneracy.”

“We are not okay with it,” Walsh continued. “We are furious about it in fact. And we aren’t following your lead in the fight against it because you people aren’t interested in fighting against it. We are not going to sit around and wait for you to execute your masterplan to win back the culture. You have no such plan.”
The DW host then blasted the Republican establishment who he said was “satisfied” to let the culture “crumble and decay” as long as it had a hand in “ruling over the rubble.”
Walsh said this was how we got to “this point in the first place” and why things were as out of control in our culture as they were — with things like transgenderism, gender ideology and more.
“That’s how the total denial of biological reality became mainstream,” the podcast host said. “And seized hold of our society. It happened because the conservative ‘leadership’ task with defending our country against evils like gender ideology abdicated their responsibility.”
Walsh said they gave up without even “a semblance” of a struggle. “They left it to the rest of us to fight this battle.”
“And so we are,” he added. “You’re asleep, we’re taking the wheel. It’s that simple. And we don’t care about Republican donors. The Republican donors are as worthless as the Republicans they donate to. So, I don’t give a damn about them.”
“But this boycott matters, it does,” Walsh concluded. “It matters because it’s obviously not just about one beer company. It’s about making a statement. It’s about achieving a victory for truth and sanity … So, step aside and let us handle it.”
