The Trouble with Tomi

Tomi Lahren doesn’t get conservativism. Oh, she may think she does but the longer she’s in the spotlight, the more apparent it is that she doesn’t understand the very principles our country was founded upon.

In a recent “Final Thoughts” segment which Lahren now hosts through Fox News, she encourages the Republican party to drop a repeal of Roe v. Wade.

 

Yes, the new high court vacancy is a huge opportunity for conservative values and principles, I get it. And I understand the passion behind the pro-life movement.

This president is winning for the American people on the economy, foreign policy, and tax reform. These are areas that benefit ALL Americans, regardless of religion or social beliefs.

If we continue to focus on those things – and immigration – we’ll sail into 2020 with all three government branches in our control. That’s how we get things done for the American people. That’s how we win.

Let’s go after sanctuary cities, and push for voter ID laws. We lose when we start messing with social issues.

Do we really want to fight for this, alienate Democrats, moderates, and libertarians, all to lose in the end anyway? That’s a risk I don’t think is worth taking.

I’m saying this as someone who would personally choose life, but also feels it’s not the government’s place to dictate. This isn’t a black and white issue and I would never judge anyone in that position.

Forgive me Tomi, but I don’t call it much of a win if we can’t protect the right to life because without life, there is no point to protect any of our other rights. It’s at the very core of the conservative movement and all other rights that follow – our Second Amendment rights, free speech, freedom of religion – hinge on the principle of the right to life.

Abortion isn’t so much a social issue as it is a moral one. We as a people have a moral obligation to protect innocent life, no matter the stage of development. And to be honest, it’s a bit hypocritical of someone who was so focused on kneeling during the National Anthem to make this kind of statement. Social justice issues were at the very root of the kneeling incidents and Lahren went on countless rants against the NFL for allowing the protests to take place.

However, this is not the first time Lahren has expressed these kinds of sentiments. Last year on The View, she came out as pro-choice, which may or may not have led to her demise at The Blaze.

“You know what? I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well,” Lahren said.

She calls herself a constitutional conservative but seems to be missing some key points the Founding Fathers made in the Declaration of Independence.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Lahren has said she doesn’t read much but if she’s going to be a prominent representative of the right, just maybe it wouldn’t hurt to actually be well informed on the issues you’re speaking about on a national platform.

Otherwise, it’s all fluff and no substance.

To quote John Adams, “let us tenderly and kindly cherish, therefore, the means of knowledge. Let us dare to read, think, speak, and write.”

Not all conservatives are going to agree 100% on everything but our core values should be the same. Lahren is free to speak her mind and share what she views as “conservatism” but if it goes against the very values that make up the movement, then we shouldn’t be giving her a platform to speak for us, especially when she says things like this.

Do we really want to fight for this, alienate Democrats, moderates, and libertarians, all to lose in the end anyway? That’s a risk I don’t think is worth taking.

Protecting life isn’t a risk we should take? It’s not worth fighting for?

With this kind of thinking, Lahren is lacking a basic comprehension of the very movement she claims to be a part of. The younger generation is watching, listening and looking up to her as a role model.

Which is why SHE’S the real risk to conservatism.

Feminists Plan Sex Strike to Protest Trump’s Supreme Court Pick

President Trump hasn’t even announced his pick to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, but feminists are already upset by the short list.

So much so that they plan a sex strike. They think Roe v. Wade is on the chopping block and in order for men to “respect the vagina” as singer Janelle Monae stated, withholding sex from me who aren’t pro-choice is the way to get what they want.

A campaign has started on Twitter, entitled #Lysistrata2018, referring to an ancient Greek play named Lysistrata, where women team up in order to end of the Peloponnesian War. Single women are supposed to add the female judge emoticon to their dating profile to send a signal to to people that they won’t date or sleep with anyone who doesn’t support a woman’s right to choose.

But some women don’t want to stop there – they want men to also pay for a portion of their birth control, which kind of seems to contradict the whole “keep men out of my vagina” philosophy, right?

But conservative Twitter had the best responses.

This “sex strike” is yet another example of how ridiculous the third wave feminism movement has become and how much the movement has come to represent abortion on demand instead of equal rights.

 

Gloria Steinem Quote About Guns and Abortion Isn’t Really by Gloria Steinem

You’ve probably seen the viral quote by feminist Gloria Steinem making its rounds on social media that says men who buy guns ought to be treated the same way that women are when they seek out an abortion.

22135721_10100363439227200_3572740166232414508_o

The full quote also adds this paragraph at the end: “After all, it makes more sense to do this for young men seeking guns than for young women seeking an abortion. No young woman needing reproductive freedom has ever murdered a roomful of strangers.”

Nevermind that this is one of the most absurd statements ever made, assuming that every man who walks into a store to buy a gun is planning to commit murder with it. Not to mention, also incredibly sexist because women purchase firearms too, you know.

And whether liberals want to admit it or not, a young woman seeking an abortion is, in fact, about to murder a human life, making her much more dangerous to mankind at that moment than a man (or woman) who walks into a store to buy a firearm for personal protection.

But back to that pesky quote.

Gloria Steinem may be getting all the credit, but in reality she never spoke those words. In fact, if you do some digging online, you’ll find that no one is sure exactly who did. The Huffington Post attributes the quote a Facebook user named Brian Murtagh but if he is indeed the author, his original post has long since been deleted.

It’s also possible it came from an article by William Hamby entitled “What if Gun Laws were like Abortion Laws?” but that was published on the now defunct Examiner.com so no one can really fact check it for accuracy.

So how did the quote get attributed to the feminist icon? Probably because she posted it on her Facebook page a few years ago in a list of “Top Ten Things I Want For Christmas.”

There you have it, folks – liberals pulling quotes out of the air that can’t be traced back to any particular person to drive a faulty narrative home.

OK Cupid Teams Up With Planned Parenthood

Are you a conservative looking for someone to date? Are you pro-life? Might want to cross using OK Cupid off your list of potential online dating sites where you can find a suitable girlfriend or boyfriend.

The dating site is now partnering with Planned Parenthood and introducing a special #IStandWithPP profile badge users can add to their profile picture. OK Cupid says it feels strongly about connecting members to causes they care about, and that 80% of members have responded “no” to the question “Should the government defund Planned Parenthood?”

“OkCupid’s partnership with Planned Parenthood is really exciting because it enables us to help people connect on the issues that matter to them. In this current climate, this matters more than ever when it comes to finding ‘your person,’” said Melissa Hobley, CMO of OkCupid. “We know that Planned Parenthood is driving conversations, support and education that millions care about. When we looked at the data, we saw that our community on OkCupid was talking about Planned Parenthood, so we decided to make it easy to find the folks who cared about the same thing.”

Strange that a dating site thinks it’s sexy to share in a cause that promotes the murder of innocent children. Also strange for a dating site to be asking users questions about whether or not the government should defund Planned Parenthood. Leave that up to the people to discuss once you connect them.

I bet they won’t enable a filter for people who DO think the abortion giant’s funds should be completely cut off.

Hanson’s New Song is Unequivocally Pro-Life

Twenty years ago, the Hanson brothers were cresting to number one on the pop charts with their infectious debut single, MMMBop.  This past week, the trio released a brand new single, I Was Born,  a folksy, toe taping melody, which touts a very strong pro-life message.

If you’ve been following the Oklahoma born and raised brothers for the past twenty years, the message in their new song shouldn’t surprise you – Isaac, Taylor and Zac, often pen songs with subtle spiritual messages. They come from a conservative evangelical background with a close-knit family and while they never talk about religion or politics with their fans, it’s easy to see their spiritual upbringing shining through in their music and charity work.

I Was Born was released to mark twenty years in the music industry and is the lead single off a new Greatest Hits compilation, releasing later this fall. While MMMBop was about holding on to the people who really care because “in the end they’ll be the only ones there,”  I Was Born, is an anthem celebrating life.

I was born to do something
No one’s ever done, no one’s ever done before
I was born to go somewhere
No one’s ever gone, no one’s ever gone before, oh
I was born to do
I was born to go
I was born to be someone
No one’s ever been, no one’s ever been before

The lyrics reflect that all humans are born with a God-given purpose in life – we have a destiny to fulfill and goals to achieve. Life is extraordinary and people were created to change the world with our hearts and minds.

Don’t need a map, I can’t be directed
I’ve got a madness, don’t need the method
My heart is a weapon and my mind’s electric
I’ll shock the world when you least expect it
Everybody’s betting on the big guy
But don’t underestimate the sting of the butterfly, oh

The music video for I Was Born features eleven of the twelve brother’s children – fulfilling their respective destinies and lending an even stronger pro-life image to the song.

In a music industry that cares more about selling records instead of creating songs with lasting impact,  I Was Born is refreshing and has an important message to send: You are meant for something great – don’t ever underestimate your purpose in life.

Women Dressed as Handmaids Protest Anti-Abortion Laws at Texas Capital

Wendy Davis is at it again. Today in Austin, Texas a group of women dressed as handmaids from the popular Handmaid’s Tale book/TV show staged a protest against anti-abortion bills. The protest was organized by Davis’ group, Deeds Not Words and NARAL of Texas.

During the protest, which was live streamed on Facebook (and can be viewed below), the women are shown holding signs with political protest statements about money being given to “fake health care clinics”, the 24 hr. waiting period for abortions and forced sonograms. The biggest and boldest sign declared “NO MORE ABORTION RESTRICTIONS. NONE!”

https://www.facebook.com/plugins/video.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fprochoicetexas%2Fvideos%2F10155373741604407%2F&show_text=0&width=560

The three young ladies in the middle each read stories of how Planned Parenthood saved lives. One was in high school with two children already and couldn’t “bear to give birth again. I didn’t want to be pregnant. I didn’t want to have another baby.”

Another was raped on a date in high school and when she discovered she was pregnant, her only thought “was to kill myself because I didn’t have any other option. Thankfully, I had a strong, supportive mother who took me to get an abortion. I made a decision to save a life – mine.”

I. Me. Mine.

Abortion is all about the woman and what SHE wants, with no regards to the other human life growing inside her. To the pro-choice movement, innocent babies don’t matter because they aren’t born and therefore aren’t considered people even though science will tell you they share the same DNA as you and I.

Shame on these women and shame on America for continuing to let it happen.
