Only 3 months ago, @TomiLahren considered an abortion to be murder, today, she branded pro life conservatives as hypocrites. #NoPrinciples https://t.co/8BqoQTOyD1
Tomi Lahren is everything a millennial wants to be if I understand “What Is“:
Millennials grew up in an electronics-filled and increasingly online and socially-networked world. They are the generation that has received the most marketing attention. As the most ethnically diverse generation, Millennials tend to be tolerant of difference. Having been raised under the mantra “follow your dreams” and being told they were special, they tend to be confident. While largely a positive trait, the Millennial generation’s confidence has been argued to spill over into the realms of entitlement and narcissism.
This is heartbreaking because she represents her generation perfectly and they worship her. This whole situation is a symptom of a greater disease. It’s not about a person, Tomi Lahren, at all. This is about the disease threatening The United States of America. We all need to pay attention because this disease is terminal.
As a publicity expert, Tomi is unhindered since she’s probably familiar with the saying, “There’s no such thing as bad publicity.” After all, it worked for Kanye West. (I doubt that this situation is causing Glenn Beck to lose any sleep, either.) She’s probably spending her week-long vacation (suspension) from his “conservative” show getting perspective at some spa that we would only dream about. (You’ll have to wait five minutes from the next tweet from the Paparazzi to find out whether I’m right.) Or, according to The Blaze, she may have already been invited to Fox News…
“There’s no such thing as bad publicity.”
First of all, in the sequence in question, Tomi never actually said she was pro-life. I had to rewind her “pro-life” video with subtitles because I thought she said “…that’s how WE appear” which would have been sufficient validation. But, she did say THEY, even though subtitles has a typo. Frankly, I think that everyone has missed the point. In my opinion, her original statement was all about keeping up appearances. Tomi was actually reprimanding Lena Dunham for her absurd comments exposing the pro-abortion movement. She was not speaking up for the those who have no voice, as I try to do through this blog, for example.
Secondly, Glenn Beck, conservative though he claims to be, didn’t care when he hired her:
“I want people to make a real argument, so we can learn from each other and we can grow.”
In the second half of the above video, she states that she would feel hypocritical to draw a line between abortion (because it relates to a woman’s body) and gun ownership as they relate to the Constitution. This shows a severe lack of the intent of our founding fathers which is abhorrently universal.
All the rhetoric and response that follows her one of her several appearances on The View (… the original forum in which real women discuss everyday issues, share their opinions and engage in colorful conversations.) is much ado about nothing if it responds to something she never intended based on incorrect assumptions.
Admittedly, valid points were raised about why pro-lifers are not hypocritical (See Example 1, Example 2). Unfortunately, their target, Tomi Lahren, likely didn’t interrupt her hot stone massage to reconsider. Imagine a sidewalk counselor outside a Planned Parenthood clinic pleading with her to interrupt her wildly successful career for an unplanned pregnancy. Would she lay it all down for a heartbeat? (Albeit she would never be allowed to view an ultrasound video or hear her baby’s heartbeat at Planned Parenthood, although the abortionist is likely utilizing it to complete the dismemberment abortion.) Apparently, her response would be to stay out of her body or she’ll get her gun. This is why the disease affecting America is terminal.
I want to remind us of a few of the finer points of journalism: There is a difference between fact and opinion even though both fall under the umbrella of journalism. It is imperative that we discern which is which. Some would consider this “judging”.
Coincidentally, my original career choice was journalism. Things didn’t work out the way I hoped when I was in high school, but I have no regrets. But, this isn’t about me… or is it? More to come on that.
Because we’ve lost the ability or inclination to think, we wait for soundbites and consider them “news”. If Glenn Beck or Tomi Lahren claim to be conservative or constitutional, then who are we to judge? Return to bullet one: It is imperative that we know the difference and this means that we must have criterion with which to judge. Let’s begin by comparing definitions from Webster’s Dictionary 1828 – Online Edition and Dictionary.com.

I personally can’t see how under either the 1828 version or the modern definition, someone who finds abortion acceptable for any reason is conservative: Ironically, the 1828 version of Abortion is an afterthought in today’s dictionary.
While Personhood was an issue in 1828 if we consider the plight of slaves, it wasn’t included in the dictionary of the time. However, comparisons have been drawn by CPT Terry M. Hestilow, USA, Ret.:
The infamous 1973 Roe v. Wade decision made by a corrupt 7-2 Supreme Court placing the right to kill pre-born children alongside our other constitutional rights was a replication of the equally infamous 1857 Dred Scott v. Sanford 7-2 decision written by pro-slavery Chief Justice Roger Taney protecting slavery and denying the right of personhood to people of African descent leaving them in an unmitigated perpetual state of slavery. This “note” not only draws the parallels between the two corrupt Supreme Court decisions; but also explores what these decisions may mean to you and me in the days ahead where “age, place of residence, condition of dependency on others, and condition of health” may set the stage for a new type of abortion for those on the opposite end of the age spectrum. It is only logical.
Ironically, only the British Dictionary seems to define why abortion denies personhood and is actually unconstitutional.
Alabama lawmakers are preparing for the day when Roe v. Wade is overturned. Abortion will not become illegal immediately when Roe is overturned; instead, the power to legislate abortion will return to the states.
Who never said the following? “An unborn child has a right to life.” If you said Justice Roberts, you’re right!If you said Justice Alito, you’re right!If you said Justice Thomas, you’re right!If you said Justice Souter, you’re right!If you said Justice Kennedy, you’re right!If you said Justice Scalia, you’re right!If you said Justice O’Connor, you’re right!If you said Judge Gorsuch, you’re right!
Intellect, will, and emotion. Whenever the subject of personhood comes up, and more specifically as humans trying to make sense of how we are fashioned “in His own image” (Gen 1:27), these three terms find a key place in the discussion.
Fox News’s Tucker Carlson put Planned Parenthood Vice President Dawn Laguens on the spot Monday when he repeatedly asked her what she thinks about babies in the womb. Carlson brought up biology and human development as he questioned Laguens on her employer’s abortion work; and Laguens responded by giving non-answers and then by appealing to moral relativism.
Ali Brivanlou slides open a glass door at the Rockefeller University in New York to show off his latest experiments probing the mysteries of the human embryo. “As you can see, all my lab is glass – just to make sure there is nothing that happens in some dark rooms that gives people some weird ideas,” says Brivanlou, perhaps only half joking.
Personhood Alabama has an opportunity to purchase a house next door to the abortion mill in Montgomery, AL. We would like to use this building as a base of operations for protests as well as a pregnancy center. The asking price is $120,000, but we think that we could get it if we offer $100,000.
We just need 100 people to donate $1,000 each to raise that amount or 1,000 people to donate $100 each. If you’d like to help us take advantage of this amazing opportunity, click on the link below to make a donation of any amount.
By the way, the abortion mill is also raising money to purchase the house in order to expand their footprint in Montgomery. Wouldn’t it be great to show Alabama how much we value the lives of prenatal children by blowing away the enemy’s fund raising efforts?
Let’s make a bold statement to Alabama and the nation as a whole that there really is no limit to the value of a child.
