Last month, the Blaze’s superstar Tomi Lahren told the hags on The View that she is pro-choice. She went on to criticize pro-life conservatives for being hypocrites.
Because limited government or something.
It set off a firestorm among pro-life conservatives.
[Well, not me. I just rolled my eyes and thought, “Figures.”]
As a result, Glenn Beck decided to pull Tomi off the air permanently.
Now, I’ve never been a fan of Tomi Lahren. I don’t dislike her or anything. It’s just that I have a built-in wariness of anyone under the age of 25.
[No offense intended if you’re under the age of 25.]
My experience taught me that oftentimes “conservatives” who enjoy a sudden rush of fame at a young age tend to crash and burn spectacularly. Like child stars.
Anybody remember CJ Pearson?
Okay, okay. I know. CJ was ten years younger than Tomi when he experienced his sudden rush of fame.
CJ was a YouTube superstar who gained loads of attention for criticizing Obama and touting so-called “conservative” principles. Then, he got caught in a lie, lost his conservative following and jumped aboard the Black Lives Matter train.
When that didn’t work, CJ tried another tack. He came out as a Bernie supporter.
When he didn’t experience the same notoriety as a Berniebot, he flopped again – this time onto the Trump train.
But the damage was done.
He just couldn’t recapture the fame he enjoyed in the beginning.
Now CJ isn’t even a speck in our rearview mirror.
Any old how.
My brother would occasionally email me a link to one of Tomi Lahren’s famous on-air moments.
And, sure, I’d nod my head at what she said – the same way I would CJ’s early videos. But I remained wary.
Youth is malleable.
So when she came out as pro-choice, I couldn’t even pretend to be surprised.
I wonder if Tomi realizes the irony in suing for wrongful termination over her support for abortion. Given that abortion is probably the biggest wrongful termination in the history of the universe.
According to The Blaze, Lahren remains under contract with them and is still getting paid. Which begs the question, why sue for wrongful termination against a company that is still paying you?
Lahren is accusing Beck of using her termination to inflate his own profile.
But, let’s be honest. Couldn’t the same thing be said of Lahren filing a lawsuit?
After all what better way to maintain her public visibility now that she no longer appears on The Blaze?
But the truth is, I don’t have a horse in this race.
Glenn Beck drives me crazy. His over-the-top, absurd behavior during the primaries and his aligning himself with anti-Trump Leftists after the election pretty much sealed the deal for me. I don’t listen to his radio program. And I rarely if ever go to The Blaze.
And, like I said, I’m no Tomi Lahren fan – pro-choice or not pro-choice. I don’t hate her or anything. I just don’t care.
But I do find it all kinds of ironic that a young woman who supports the wrongful termination of the unborn would have such a problem with wrongful termination.
