Tomi Lahren’s appearance on The View Friday morning caused quite a stir, as I wrote about here. Although a self-described conservative, Ms. Lahren was quick to tell the eager audience that she was “pro-choice”, and said the following:
“I’m pro choice, and here’s why,” Lahren said. “I am a constitutional, y’know, someone that loves the Constitution. I’m someone that’s for limited government. So I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies.
Tomi has been all over the map with the abortion issue in the past year. This should not be the case. During the December 22, 2016 “Final Thoughts” segment on her show, she rightly targeted pro-abort Lena Dunham who stated on a podcast that she wished she’d had an abortion.
This woman, and I use the term loosely, single-handedly kills legitimacy of the modern-day feminist movement every time she speaks.
…does she realize how damaging she is to her own narrative? Think about it: the “pro-choicers” are supposed to be about rare and safe abortions. That’s how they avoid sounding like straight-up baby killers…
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.
And here I thought the loving Left…were all about peace, and love, and light, except when it comes to the unborn, I suppose. Then it’s a different story, a story they write and rewrite to fit their narrative…
Hey, Tomi? Saying you’re pro-choice three months after slamming that very movement doesn’t say much about your character, either. Except that you’re a spotlight-loving chameleon whose opinions change based on the crowd you’re playing to. On Friday, you had liberal hosts and a mostly liberal crowd ready to pounce. You caved, for what? For the applause that would be sure to follow as liberal women shook their head in agreement and marveled at a young, Republican female who supports legally-protected homicide? That’s not how you earn the term “principled conservative”, dear.
Tomi doesn’t appreciate those like Lena Dunham who write and rewrite as necessary, but this is exactly what she does herself. And it’s gross.
Abortion is a black and white issue. You’re either for it or against it. You can’t sit on the fence. There certainly shouldn’t be such a quick turnaround from calling it murder to describing it as protecting a woman’s body from government interference.
Just wait a few moments, though. Ms. Lahren just might switch back to calling out abortion lovers when she notices the audience has changed.
