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.

Woman Throws Water on Tomi Lahren As She Leaves Restaurant

Fox News correspondent Tomi Lahren is on her Family, Freedom and Final Thoughts tour, speaking at different venues around the US. After a recent stop in Minneapolis, an angry snowflake threw a glass of water on her and screamed profanities as she was leaving a restaurant after having brunch with her parents.

Watch the NSFW video here.

She was on Fox and Friends this morning to discuss the incident, saying “I’m tough, I can handle it.”

In addition to President Trump tweeting his support for her, Tomi is also finding support from some unlikely people, including Kathy Griffin?!?

Tomi is not my favorite person. She doesn’t do well in off scripted moments or seem to really have any original thoughts of her own and let’s face it, she’s probably only on Fox because of her looks. Her pro-choice views make her a poor representation of the conservative movement and I wish people would stop turning her into some kind of poster girl for the right.

But this kind of behavior is not the way to express how you feel about someone. It’s disrespectful and the fact that some of it hit her mother too, makes it even worse.

Disagree with someone all you want, but don’t stoop that level. People should be allowed to go out for brunch with their family without getting attacked by crazy resisters.

Next time someone wants to spar with Tomi, take Sarah Rumpf of RedState’s approach and hit her with words, not water.

The State of the Union, the Democratic response and Tomi Lahren’s idiotic comments

On Tuesday evening, President Donald Trump gave his first State of the Union speech. While not being the biggest Trump fan in the world, I by and large enjoyed the nearly hour and half speech.

The President touched on all the major policy areas one would have expected. He talked about the economy, unemployment, taxes, wages, national security, highlighted some of the natural disasters the country faed with last year and how we’re stronger as a nation because of it. He touched on the hot button issue of the day, immigration. There were no real surprises. Unlike his campaign speeches, he stayed on point, and didn’t go off in tangent after tangent. Also, unlike his campaign speeches, he read it off the teleprompter.

But as with anyone with more than two braincells knows, the State of the Union is political theater of the highest accord. I mean, the party of the president giving the speech stands up and applauds 2,000 times throughout the speech.

Then as part of the political theater, the opposing party trots out, who they feel is a rising star in their party, to deliver a response to the State of the Union. This time, the individual the Dems chose was Rep. Joseph Kennedy. Yes, of that Kennedy family.

Kennedy’s speech was really everything you thought it would be – Democratic talking points, meant to draw a sharp contrast between the Republicans and Democrats. Not a terrible speech, but definitely meant for the Democratic base.

However, conservative commentator Tomi Lahren felt the need to make her feelings about Kennedy’s speech known. Did she deliver an articulate, well-thought out response, detailing why Kennedy’s ideas will take our nation in the wrong direction? If you said yes, then you must have no idea of Tomi Lahren’s work.

No, instead she responded by posting a video of herself where she calls Kennedy “a little limp d**k.”

Classy stuff, no doubt.

The Fox News contributor has since apologized for her vulgar and frankly, stupid remarks.

But the questions have to be asked, what could have she been thinking? What could she have been gained for posting this? And why is she always so anger? I mean, her guy is in the White House.

Perhaps this gives her more material for her Final Thoughts segments: Tomi gives us her opinion on the liberal outrage about her conservative outrage about the Democratic response to President Trump’s State of the Union speech.

Keep it classy, Tomi and that’s my final thought.

Tomi Lahren is a Snowflake

Tomi Lahren talks an awful lot about “snowflakes” but with the latest drama involving the former Blaze “Final Thoughts” host, it seems like SHE’s the one being a snowflake. Last week. Lahren announced she was suing former boss Glenn Beck  over “wrongful termination over her comments favoring abortion rights” which aired on The View last month.

But according to Beck, Lahren wasn’t terminated and is still being paid by The Blaze. “It is puzzling that an employee who remains under contract (and is still being paid) has sued us for being fired, especially when we continue to comply fully with the terms of our agreement with her,” a Blaze spokesman said.

Today, things got even uglier when Glenn Beck hit Lahren with a counter-suit saying she was suspended after clashing with other Blaze personalities,  repeatedly “inappropriate and unprofessional” during her interactions with crew members during her Blaze TV show and that she also broke company rules by revealing her wardrobe budget in an interview.

Beck says it’s not about Lahren’s pro-choice comments and that you can be “pro-choice and have a job at The Blaze.”

There’s also been lots of squabbling over who has control of her official Facebook page. Tomi says she’s been shut out and can’t access it. The Blaze says “and for the record, Tomi has had, and continues to have, access to the Facebook account in question. None of this makes sense. The Blaze continues to comply with its agreement with her.”

Sounds to me like the young millennial got her feelings hurt when she was slapped on the wrist for not complying with workplace rules so she decided to make a stink to try to get her way.
