Normally we don’t care much about the internal politics of other news outlets, especially other prominent conservative sites. But sometimes something so bizarre, so totally unacceptable happens and it requires some commenting.
Perhaps the most crucial virtue of conservatives and republicans of all stripes is the right to life. Our stance against abortion and the evils associated with it extend far beyond politics. It is a fundamental belief that our Creator granted every human being with the gift of life and nobody, the government or otherwise, has the right to rob a person of that right before they are even born.
When it comes to many other issues, from limited government to free or fair trade to immigration, there can be a variety of opinions within the GOP and conservatives. But when it comes to protecting the rights of unborn children, there can be no argument. Abortion is a heinous, corrupt, and barbaric practice. Few on the right are willing to protect it.
So it came as a shock when a known conservative spokes person, while appearing on a garbage liberal show The View, would pander to the leftist hosts and audience by claiming she was pro-choice.
That pretty much invalidates her conservative card in my book.
And it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that the outlet she works for feels the same.
From The Daily Caller:
Conservative media company The Blaze has suspended political commentator Tomi Lahren, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed to The Daily Caller…
Lahren’s inflammatory style placed her at odds with other employees at The Blaze, as previously reported by TheDC. Tensions were high between Lahren and her coworkers at The Blaze even before she called pro-life conservatives hypocrites in an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Friday.
In her appearance on The View, Lahren said she is pro-choice and called pro-life conservatives hypocrites, saying, “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.”
Sounds like it’s come straight out of a liberal’s mouth. Pro-choice supporters love to claim that restricting abortion would be giving the government power over a woman’s body. That’s an outright lie. It’s about protecting the body of that unborn child. Doesn’t she or he have any rights? How can a woman rob that child of life–that’s someone else body entirely.
Lahren’s 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 don’t like it, tough. I will always be honest and stand in my truth.”
Soon after Lahren’s tweet, a reporter at The Blaze, Kate Scanlon, tweeted, “There is no ‘my truth.’ There is only the truth.”

I don’t’ see how Lahren can go on pretending to be a conservative when she tweets out empty platitudes and liberal double talk nonsense as “my truth.” That’s just garbage that liberal and empty head hippies created to justify ignorance and wrong ideas.
There is only one truth in the matter of abortion. Pro-choice supporters have to hide the fact and twist the truth to justify such a vile practice.
Now Lahren is free to voice her opinion. In the U.S. she has the right to state whatever dumb nonsense she believes. But don’t expect conservatives and pro-life supporters to stand with you. And don’t expect a conservative site like the Blaze to back your evil claims.
