“Bomb” Throwing Tomi Lahren Suspended by the Blaze after Calling Pro-Life Conservatives “Hypocrites” while on “The View”

Brash and controversial TV pundit Tomi Lahren has been suspended by the Blaze and could be on her way out of the company for good.

This shocking news comes just days after Larhen made an appearance on ABC’s morning show, “the View,” and seemingly called pro-life conservatives hypocrites. Why are they supposedly hypocrites? Because while we argue for “smaller government” we also say that babies should be protected from abortion, and Lahren believes these two things to be mutually exclusive.

“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.”

While we understand her point, many conservatives argued that if murder is a criminal act then so too is abortion, which is simply child murder. The location of the child (in the mother’s womb) is not of importance because the baby can be taken from the mother without the mother facing long-term detriment.

The backlash against Lahren from the pro-life community was immediate and Lahren was soon online to defend herself.

Libertarian YouTuber Julie Borowski dismantled Lahren’s argument for abortion and her position that it was hypocritical to be for “small government” and against abortion.

A pair of Lahren’s coworkers also took to Twitter to voice their disagreement with her abortion comments.

And her current boss, Glenn Beck, even showed that Lahren hasn’t exactly been consistent on this topic.

On Monday, founder of The Blaze Glenn Beck–in an unusual move–played a clip of Lahren seemingly flip-flopping on the abortion issue on his radio show. He also argued against Lahren’s stance that pro-life conservatives are hypocrites.

“I would disagree that you’re a hypocrite if you want limited government and yet you want the government to protect life of the unborn. It’s very, very clear. But it takes intellectual honesty, and it takes a willingness to actually think these things through and to do more than just read Twitter or Facebook to get your news and your political opinions. You actually have to study things — these things out in your mind. Especially at a time period like today,” Beck said.

“Bomb throwing is — bomb throwing in today’s world is dangerous. Freedom of speech, it’s not free. Speech isn’t free. It comes with a very high price tag. First, being intellectually honest and intellectually curious. Speech is not free. It comes with another cost and usually to the other people at the other end of your argument. The pen is mightier than the sword, and it can destroy people if your aim is clicks, views, and ratings,” he continued.

According to multiple reports the two incidents, Lahren’s appearance on the View and her suspension, may not be related and that Lahren’s personality and style led her to be at odds with her coworkers.

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.
