Well, in a stunning twist of irony, it turns out that conservatives won’t stand for Tomi Lahren being pro-choice or calling them out for being hypocrites on abortion laws. Just who exactly are the real snowflakes?
According to the New York Post’s Page Six, the former conservative sweetheart is now permanently banned from Glenn Beck’s multiplatform network, TheBlaze, after taking a pro-choice stance and calling out conservatives who stan for small government but want to legislate women’s bodies.
“Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites,” one insider told Page Six’s Richard Johnson.
How the tables have turned.
Lahren was suspended from TheBlaze last week after appearing on The View and making her opinion very clear.
“I am pro-choice, and here’s why,” she said. “I am someone that loves the Constitution, I am 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 that 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,’” she said.
A source told Page Six that Beck is trying to win back his conservative diehards and unify the country. He surprised many late last year when he said that Barack Obama made him a better man.
“He’s trying to balance being a leading conservative thinker and also someone who can unify the country,” the source said. “He just couldn’t sit by and watch as Tomi Lahren said there’s no way for conservatives to justify anything other than being pro-choice.”
Oh well. On to the next one, I guess it is for Lahren, who doesn’t appear to have made a statement about the incident, but tweeted this late yesterday:
