How Can I Reach the Other Tomi Lahrens in the World?

Tomi Lahren annoys me.

There are times she infuriates me with her inane rants, but as we’ve previously discussed, reducing her to her stupid one-liners for liberals to laugh at does nothing. We never reach her audience with the facts, and the idiocy of the hyper-conservatives continue. However, I use the term “annoy,” because I do think it’s pretty bad-ass that a 24-year-old woman from South Dakota busted her ass and has already made a huge name for herself in the political commentary and media world. She deserves her kudos for that.

However, her constant attacks against any criticizers of Trump, overuse of “snowflakes” as an insult, and her lack of logical arguments have ticked me off more times than I can count. But maybe she’s learning: Lahren admitted on television that she was pro-choice.

Surrounded by strong female personalities on The View, Lahren stated her stance on abortion and went on to explain why.

"I'm someone that is for limited government, so I can't sit here and be a hypocrite and say I'm for limited government, but I think that the government should decide what women do with their bodies...Stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well."

I know, I was just as shocked as anyone. A raving conservative commentary, using LOGIC? Oh my god, stop the presses! Well, in a way, her statement kind of did. After her statements, her employer The Blaze suspended her show for at least one week.

It’s like Lahren has maybe been listening to criticisms and doing some research of her own! It’s like she realized that hyper-conservative views might not be based in fact! I want to congratulate Lahren for having the guts to point out the hypocrisy of legislating female bodies...or did she?

Only 3 months ago, Lahren labeled the pro-choice movement “baby-killers.” She said, “Pro-choicers are supposed to be about rare and safe abortions. That’s how they avoid sounding like straight-up baby-killers, by acknowledging that abortion is not a positive thing and a difficult choice. Then we have Lena freakin’ Dunham out there, wishing she could have murdered a fetus. Wishing for the option to kill your child doesn’t exactly say much about the cause, her character, or the pro-choice movement.” For someone so passionate about associating pro-choice with murder, this seems an awfully quick turn-around. Was this Lahren learning, or something else?
