Skip to comments.The Blaze Suspends Tomi Lahren
Posted on 03/20/2017 3:32:51 PM PDT by monkapotamus
The Blaze has suspended political commentator Tomi Lahren, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Daily Caller.
In her appearance on The View, Lahren said she is pro-choice and called pro-lifer conservatives hypocrites, saying, I cant sit here and be a hypocrite and say Im for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies.
Lahrens denouncement of pro-lifers sparked a backlash from her coworkers, as well as other prominent conservatives.
In her typical adversarial style, Lahren fired back at critics on Twitter, saying, I speak my truth. If you dont like it, tough. I will always be honest and stand in my truth.
Soon after Lahrens tweet, a reporter at The Blaze, Kate Scanlon, tweeted, There is no my truth. There is only the truth.

Beck running an echo chamber? shocking!
Never heard of her.
Beck could be jealous on the rise of Lahren. Lahren gave him an excuse.
Elmer Gantry’s protégé?
Wow what a tool... Maybe when she grows up she can make her own decisions without adult or governmental assistance.
This statement itself is hypocritical because it was government who took away the 10th Amendment limited government rights of the states to regulate abortion.
Hillary running an echo chamber?
Little ho playing a role for money and fame.
Hope she ends up turning tricks in a trailer park.
I think she’s terrific. I get her videos all the time on FB, and I think she is a major asset for the conservative movement.
If she’s pro-choice — so that’s ONE area where she disagrees with most conservatives. But she makes so many great arguments against the left on every issue, and she speaks to millenials with such great passion. I love her passion, and I think over all she is a great asset to our side — especially to the Millennial generation.
I’m sure there are a bunch of Freeper who think I should leave FR even though I’ve been active here since November 1998.
But IMHO she is a great asset to the conservative movement, and I think those who disparage her are, well, frankly, extremely short-sighted.
Is OAN trying to out-Fox Fox by going with blonder blondes and emptier heads?
Leave it to crybaby Beck to hire a baby killer apologist.
Lahren describes herself as a “constitutional conservative”. She has said that she is a commentator, not a journalist, and has said that her shows are not about presenting news neutrally, but about commentary and “mak[ing] the news”.
Lahren’s commentaries have been described by critics as often racist, a label she disputes.She acknowledges that commentators have lampooned her as “White Power Barbie”. She has been described as an “anti-feminist who admires strong women”, whose positions on immigration are similar to those of Donald Trump. She has criticized African American people for various social issues, including drug abuse and unemployment. She has stated that she believes in women’s empowerment, and looks up to women from the political left and the political right.
In July 2016, Lahren wrote a tweet comparing the Black Lives Matter movement to the Ku Klux Klan. Tens of thousands of people signed a Change.org petition in response asking for her to be fired from TheBlaze. The petition was unsuccessful. In November 2016, Lahren released a video on the protests against Donald Trump. In August 2016, she released a video criticizing Colin Kaepernick, who had been protesting racism by kneeling during the playing of the national anthem before football games.
In March 2017, Lahren said she believed women should have access to abortion and described herself as pro-choice. She was subsequently criticized by a number of anti-abortion writers and suspended from The Blaze.
I think those who support her are, quite frankly advocating the murder of helpless people.
Any wo.an who has,carried a son, knows that’s a darned lie. Genetically different, anatomically different. And who exactly confers the right for a heartbeat to be stopped? The child is not like the liver, try taking a science class.. dummy.
I would like to get to hear her, since she is very bright and articulate.
I agree with her almost all of the time. One topic shouldn’t be a litmus test to suspend or kick her off the site.
Conservatism is its own asset and it sells itself; we don’t need “legends in their own mind” to promote it.
I understand where you're coming from, but the truth is that Roe v. Wade is going to be the law for a LONG time. And in the meantime, there are MANY political battles on other issues, and she is going to be an asset on all of them.
In fact, I believe, based on her many videos, that she would at least argue that abortion shouldn't be paid for by taxpayers. I'd be surprised if she supported government funding of Planned Parenthood.
See my post #20.
At 23-years-old, Tomi Lahren is the youngest political talk show host in history. She ignited a firestorm with her Red, White, Blue and Unfiltered Final Thoughts following the Chattanooga terrorist attack that killed three Marines and one Sailor. Now shes back on primetime television with her one-hour self-titled show, Tomi, on Glenn Becks TheBlazeTV.
Lahren was previously the host of One America News Networks On Point with Tomi Lahren. She created, wrote and designed the show from scratch.
Lahrens sassy sense of humor was showcased at the 2015 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). She destroyed the Republican stereotype of old, rich, white
men. Her Hillary Clinton pantsuit joke won over the CPAC crowd and ruffled a few feathers on the left.
Lahren was born and raised in Rapid City, South Dakota. Her parents, both from ranching backgrounds, taught her the value of hard work. Her love of political discussion comes from family table debates centered on the nightly news.
Not one to play it safe, Lahren moved to Las Vegas, Nevada to attend college at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She studied broadcast journalism and political science. She also produced and hosted a political roundtable show The Scramble for UNLV-TV.
Two months before college graduation, Lahren applied for an internship with Glenn Becks TheBlaze network. She was turned down. Shortly thereafter, Lahren contacted One America News Network for an internship opportunity. After just one interview with network owner, Robert Herring, she was offered her own political talk show. On Point with Tomi Lahren was born.
In the summer of 2015, Lahrens sassy tell it like it is commentary caught the eye of Glenn Beck. She is now the newest member of Glenns BlazeTV family.
Lahren is not one to pull any punches. Immigration, national security and entitlements are her hot buttons. As a proud South Dakotan, she holds on to her Second Amendment rights, as well.
Its about time for a talk show host that talks to you, not at you. Truth is, we all want whats best for this country, some just need to be reminded. Thats Tomis job.
She’s awesome and I really like the look of total defeat in the opposing Dem commentators (they like “who cares what I say with HER around) when she’s on Fox, which has been happening a lot lately. She get’s on there and she’ll have her own show in a week.
Someone should give her this book to read:”Gosnell - The Untold Story of America’s Most Prolific Serial Killer”
Not me, I've always said that the abortion issue has been nothing but a tool used by the MSM to divide and conquer our party...........
Does anyone here actually believe that every single democrat politician believes in pro choice? I don't, but it doesn't serve the cause of the MSM to even bring up the question to them..........
Big fan of Tomi’s. Young, attractive, bright, courageous. She stepped in it this time, but nobody is 100% pure - or 100% correct.
Saving some money prior to shutting down.
If you really want to trigger the hallelujah chorus just say anything positive about Ted Cruz.
She'd probably do well enough in sales, or real estate, or quote a few things...whatever she decided to get herself accredited for doing.
Just in case...
I'm not going to turn down the services of an M-1 Abrams tank for our side just because it's painted pink in one spot on the rear quarter-panel. 😀
I'm more pragmatic in this war, because I've been here for 20 years this month (not my original screen name)...
Tomi would have bumble for breakfast. &$128512;
Murdering babies is more than just a litmus test.
I wouldn’t kick that to the curb...right away.
Im sure there are a bunch of Freeper who think I should leave FR even though Ive been active here since November 1998.

This is Jim Robinson’s Free Republic. Though I could not find a specific comment about FR being pro-life on the Intro page, I believe Free Republic is a pro-life website. Only JR can ask someone to leave.
Can any demographic be 100%? No. However, I tend to believe that very close to every single democrat is pro-choice. Do a search of Pro-Life Democrats~the articles would not support that there are a large number of pro-life Democrats anymore. The Democrat Party has moved to the radical left with no apologies. Look they tried to remove God from their platform in 2012.
I don’t know why you would think that abortion is a tool used by MSM to divide party. The GOP has always been pro-life...So where would you want pro-life conservatives to go? Form a new party? Makes no sense especially with the past election of Donald Trump.
President Trump won with a pro-life message~he was apologetically pro-life at last debate. Therefore I don’t see why conservatives should moderate their pro-life position.
Tomi is wrong on this because she is only 23 or 24 years old. I had a similar position at that age too.
I bet she changes once she has children. That happens to a lot of people Libertarian, Republican or Democrat.
Tomi is on the right side with just about everything else.
I read that one. That would be an eye opener for Ms Lahren.She would get to see that many women were forced into abortions against their will.
Good. Baby killers should be shunned and made as outcasts
That's what I suggested.
Well, I think she is an attention-seeking ignorant little whore.
How about that?
(See my tag)
Thanks for sharing your lack of ethical perspective.
Wow. You’re comparing baby murder with a paint job??? Fail.
She she gets a pass because she is hot?
Yes, post 20 is equally vapid, you speak like groupies. . .fine she’s easy on the eyes and you’re in love . . I get it . . ..she is also horribly WRONG on this “issue” . . issue? . .murder of children is an “issue” . . so we should lay off the pretty girl?
Oh no we don’t need young articulate people who can reach other young people and counter 98% of the liberal agenda. We must have 100% agreement with conservative dogma as mandated on the FR. Oh no. No heresy allowed. She must called a ho and run out of town. I’m sure Pat Buchanan will do a much better job of reaching millenials. (Eyes rolling)
The words you quoted were included in a sentence Tomi said she would NOT say.
Conservatism just sells itself, don’cha know?
I agree, Tomi is an asset to the conservative movement.
