Usually we expect liberals to eat their own, a good example is how liberal Juan Williams got fired from NPR. But now, “conservative” Glenn Beck has decided to act like a liberal by suspend Tomi Lahren just because she’s not 100% pro-life.
This is the statement that angered Beck:
No, I’m pro-choice, and here’s why. 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 say what women’s can’t do with their bodies. I’m for limited government so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well.
Now to me the issue isn’t pro-choice vs. pro-life, but about loyalty and hypocrisy. Glenn Beck for example has called himself a libertarian, has left the Republican Party, has attacked Donald Trump on numerous occasions, compared Trump supporters to Nazi storm troopers, so he’s not exactly the perfect conservative, but someone who has explored a variety of ideologies, a political bisexual if you will.
Beck deserves credit for being pro-gun, as is Tomi Lahren, but can someone who probably didn’t vote for Trump call himself a pro-gun conservative? If you say you love guns, but won’t vote for the only candidate endorsed by the NRA, the only candidate that loves the 2nd and has a chance at winning, are you really pro-gun? I don’t think so.
The fact is that Beck didn’t have to fire Tomi, there are many conservative topics she can write about, and there are plenty of pro-lifers that already write for The Blaze.
Tomi deserves a platform, she could win a lot of pro-choice people to our side when it comes to the 2nd Amendment. Glenn Beck’s anti-Trump crusade already cost him plenty of followers, purging a proud pro-gunner is not going to help him one bit.
Lastly, I invite you to read this interview with Tomi Lahren, here’s a quote:
We fear what we don’t understand. Guns are not scary if you understand their power and their purpose. I find most people that are anti-gun have never held a gun, bought a gun or shot a gun. The only thing they know of guns is the misinformation the mainstream media tells them. Most young people are afraid to ride a bike or drive a car until they learn. The same can be said for firearms.
