    Tomi Lahren Suspended From The Blaze

    Tomi Lahren suspended by the Blaze after abortion stance controversy

    Tomi Lahren has reportedly been suspended from her show at the Blaze after a controversy erupted over her decision to announce she was pro-choice on the View last week. From the Daily Caller:
    Lahren’s show is suspended for effect for at least one week starting Monday, according to TheDC’s sources. A source with direct knowledge of the situation previously told TheDC that Lahren’s contract with the company goes until September, but that she may leave the company before then.
    This announcement follows a rather ominous tweet by Glenn Beck yesterday responding to Lahren’s defense:

    All of this started last Friday when Lahren appeared on The View and announced she was pro-choice:


    There seem to be several different reactions to this announcement. On the one hand, some people seem to see the idea of a pro-choice woman acting as a conservative spokesperson on television, since that view is out of step with the right. Then there are those who were offended by how Lahren presented her views. Here’s what she actually said:
    SEE ALSO:

    I’m pro choice, and here’s why. 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. I can sit here and say that as a Republican and I can say, you know what, I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns and you can stay out of my body as well.
    Maybe Lahren didn’t intend this, but what she said is that she holds these views because to do otherwise would be hypocrisy, i.e. anyone who supports the 2nd Amendment but is pro-life is a hypocrite. So she has now insulted a significant portion of the conservative audience including, apparently, her boss.
    And speaking of hypocrisy, when did Lahren’s views on the life issue change? It must have been very recently because, as the Federalist points out, just a few months ago she was talking like a pro-lifer:


    Three months is a very short time to traverse the massive philosophical and political divide between “baby killers” and “stay out of my body.” It would be one thing is Lahren had been pro-choice on her own show and then announced a hardcore pro-life position on The View. That would suggest someone who had made a big shift but was sticking to their own internal convictions despite the resistance from the immediate audience. But that’s not what happened here. Instead, it looks as if Lahren has been telling each audience what they wanted to hear. And if that’s true on one of the fundamental issues dividing the major parties and the country, it could be true on other issues as well.

    I watched that and was surprised to hear that when she said it. But we are all not perfect and there are some issues that I have that many of you could find surprising as well. Not saying I do have issues but we all do not have views that are right down the board the same.

    She and Kate Perry would make a cute couple.

    I reckon making murder legal would give us less government.

    How many blonds does it take to read the Constitution?


    It takes 2.

    It takes one to draw the pictures and the other to look the pictures up in the dictionary.

    Good for her.

    Abortion isn't a matter for the courts and it's not a matter of women's rights to do whatever they wish with their body.

    There are far too many people. Good God, if you think we've got it bad now, what with crime and welfare, imagine what it would be like if all those damned dead babies were running around!

    Thank Goodness for abortion!

    Everybody knows when an unborn child becomes human? It's when the unborn child passes out of the birth canal. At that very second, the birth fairy waves her magic wand and poof!! They become human.

    We kill our own flesh and blood and let in strangers who are welfare cases to take jobs away from our children that do survive.

    She'll find a workplace home, no problem. I am pro life, I wasn't always. If Beck removes her for this, it is his loss.

    I would like her to comment and clarify on what she said, if she hasn't already.
    The Progressives have become full blown NAZIs, to thwart a Hitler that doesn't exist...since that is the only way they can express, and self justify, their fascism.

    She will probably do better moving on. Beck has become a nutcase and I don't download the Blaze at all now for over two years. I'm sure many news sites would like to have her on board.
    If I had a 40 foot yacht instead of two 20 foot aluminum skiffs, I'd invite her on board too.

    PiŮa Coladas and Gin Martinis-----skimpy bathing suits and lots of Hawaiian Tropic suntan oil(lotion forbidden!)

    I'd keep a few PBR's in the fridge too.

    I have always considered a fetus becomes a human when it can survive on its own. That's generally some time within the frame of the third trimester.

    The medical term for miscarriage is "spontaneous abortion".
