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.
