Abortion Lover Tomi Lahren Half-Fired By Glenn Beck, For Loving Abortion Too Much
If there is any bone Tomi Lahren has to pick with the Left is that they say they are tolerant, but then they go and be intolerant of intolerance all the time, and call people bigots just because they are going around saying things they disagree with (that happen to be super bigoted).
"UGH! Snowflakes! Snowflakes! They are all delicate snowflakes! Who go around not liking people just because those people are jerks, and protesting things just because they disagree with them instead of doing the grown-up thing where they have a show on The Blaze and whine about how bad it makes them feel when black people mention that racism exists!" she cries into the dead of night.
This is one reason Tomi Lahren has been a proud conservative. Because they are so much more tolerant and open-minded than liberals are, and would never, ever make someone feel bad or exclude them for their ideas. They're just far more open-minded, you know?
Let's take a moment and revisit some of Tomi's #feelings about the Women's March:
Tomi was very upset. Not only because the women's marchers were daring to protest the "free and fair" election of Donald Trump, but also that they "excluded" women who didn't agree with them.
"Oh, but they also purposely ignore and dismiss any woman who doesn't think like they do, like Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Palin, or Ivanka Trump. Or really any woman who doesn't hold free abortion or birth control as priority one for the nation. Yeah, these marchers are pretty freakin' selective on just who fits their mold of empowerment.
But it's not just the marchers. It's the feminist movement and really the collective left, who preach tolerance and understanding, but only for those people and issues they believe in. Meanwhile, they point fingers at Trump or Trump supporters, and label us all bigots with their cardboard signs, their hashtags, and their exclusive moral ground we're just not good enough to stand on."
But oh how the tables have turned!
Last week, Tomi Lahren went on The View. And, during her appearance on The View, she not only revealed that she was pro-choice, but that she felt that conservatives who are pro-life are hypocrites, because she thinks conservatism is about the government leaving you alone and not telling you what to do in your personal life. Which should really come as a big surprise to, well, literally everyone who is not a heterosexual white man in this country.
On the show, Lahren said:
"I can't sit here and be a hypocrite and say I'm for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies."
Of course, this is not the only way that anti-choice people are rather hypocritical. There is also the fact that they claim to be "pro-life" but do not really seem to give a damn about the fetus once it's born, don't seem to advocate much for birth control so's to avoid abortion in the first place, and usually support the death penalty.
Following this, Tomi got quite the backlash from her very tolerant audience and was suspended from her job at The Blaze. Primarily because of their "exclusive moral ground" she's just not good enough to stand on anymore.
So, after months, or maybe a year, of going on and on and on and on about how bad the Left is for excluding people like her because she doesn't "buy into" racism existing or think that free birth control and abortion should be priority one for this nation -- she is now excluded from the Right for thinking that abortion should be legal.
Beck, responding to this kerfuffle, said that he doesn't only hire people for The Blaze who agree with him, but nonetheless suspended Lahren for her comments. Because saying abortion should be legal is far more controversial than demanding that black people get to thanking her for Abraham Lincoln freeing the slaves, instead of protesting racist police officers.
Does this mean that people on the right are now SNOWFLAKES? Snowflakes who need to be protected from opinions they disagree with? Sure sounds like it to me!
