That will show her. Tomi Lahren was a host on the blaze network owned by Glenn Beck. And she said some things about abortion, like she is pro choice so she got canned. This is usually a liberal reaction, not a conservative one. I wish I was surprised that the Glenn Beck spiral of nonsense did this, I am not.

www.huffingtonpost.com...
Commentator Tomi Lahren’s time is apparently up at TheBlaze, according to a new report from the New York Post’s “Page Six.”

Glenn Beck’s network suspended the 24-year-old Lahren’s show, “Tomi,” last week after she called anti-abortion conservatives “hypocrites.”



Her being prochoice should not be a reason to fire her. Glenn Beck should welcome differing opinions and allow her to make him all that sweet sweet money, as her show was popular.


“I’m pro-choice,” Lahren said during an interview on “The View” earlier this month, “and here’s why: I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think that the government should decide what women should do with their bodies.”

The suspension was reportedly supposed to last one week, but “Page Six” writer Richard Johnson said unnamed sources told him that Lahren’s show was permanently banned.

WHAT IN GODS NAME? A REAL REPUBLICAN?

Countdown to her demonization to inevitable democrat shill in 4...3....2....

And she didn't even say anything, like she was pro abortion or anything. She said that women's rights and abortion are not a federal government issue. Keep your hands of my Guns and my body!

Well..Not a fan of Tomi by any means, I think she's pretty much a Meghan Kelly wanna be with less substance and a flair for the dramatic.

BUT.

Being fired for supporting a woman's right to choose? That's harsh, even for the Blaze.

And yes, she is showing true conservative values by saying I may disagree, but that's not the government's job, nor legal right to tell me what to do with my own body.

I respect her a little more than I did.

Oddly enough, I've never been given an actual rebuttal to that tiny little piece of logic.

If "you" favor the government leaving you alone and staying out of people's lives, why do you want the government to legislate what "you" and every other woman can do with themselves?

"It's not their body." Mmm pretty sure it is, as far as my understanding of how pregnancy and abortion, or childbirth, work...

The conservatives in that camp argue the following to your logic:

A woman's right to choose ends when that decision effects the life of the unborn who cannot decide for themselves.

It's technically a conservative outlook if you look at common law, as in you have the right to do as you please so long as you don't interfere with the rights of others.

It just becomes a grey area, once you try and decide what constitutes a baby versus a pile of goo in your uterus.

Understand Beck's position on this is rooted in what he believes is right versus what he believes is wrong. If I'm an employer and I have an employee who I believe is condoning murder, I would fire that employee just as Beck did.

His money, bis business, his risk, his call entirely.

I get that. The difference is usually that point is made in a shrill, hysterical voice and then it opens up a whole other debate or two, because the counter to it is that the unborn is impacting the rights of the woman blah blah blah.

The whole "right to choose" issue is a two headed serpent in conservative circles, particularly in conservative Constitutionalist circles. A lot of us are religiously opposed to it, but would be willing to accept that it's a "choice" and "right of self" issue if the law wasn't so GD convoluted in other aspects. It makes absolutely NO sense to have legalized abortion under the "it is her body, her choice" interpretation of rights while criminalizing prostitution, recreational drug use, failure to wear a seat belt, and even suicide.

What she said was she believe in a legal procedure that is abortion. If it is legal, I see no grounds for dismissal. In fact I could see a civil rights lawsuit.

But both her and Glenn would profit handsomely if this does go to court. So my cynical side says this is a set up, with the circus known as Beck, nothing would surprise me.

EXACTLY!

Which is why for years, I've been saying a lot of conservatives are actually just liberals who don't know what a conservative is.

True conservatism means leave me the hell alone, so long as I am not hurting anybody else. So all those things you mention, should be entirely legal. The fact that they were legislated at all, is a government over reach.

I agree with everything you said, but to throw "Pro-Life" off the boat as NONREPUBLICAN is my issue the whole time.

I guess if you make it a pain-free murder it's ok?

Unfortunately, the identity of modern politics has distilled itself down to a ridiculous equation.
Liberal= Federally mandated empathy
Conservative= Federally mandated morality

Neither is worth a tinker's damn. Forced empathy isn't empathy in any way, it's just forced redistribution of funds, resources, and energy. Forced morality isn't going to get anybody to Heaven any more than forcing a fat man to put salad on his plate is going to make him an ethical vegan.

Personally, I think this is Glen Beck's choice and his choice alone. Any individual who owns a business should have the unquestioned right to terminate any employee for any reason. Everyone should be free to succeed or fail on their own, no artificial constraints, no artificial safety nets... live your life and go as far or as near as your gumption can carry you, leaving the rest of the world the hell alone.

Well if it's legal then it's not murder.

Yeah I'm fine with what he wants to do for his business, no issues there, I'm just surprised is all.

I've fired people for less.

I would not have expected him to give up ratings for his morals. Unless his advertisers threatened to jump and run I suppose.

Well, Glen Beck isn't a Republican. On Election night he divested himself from both Conservative and Republican, stating that he didn't want any part of what the Conservative and Republican voters put in office. I'd say he has the earmarks of a man trying to reinvent himself as some manner of theocratic exemplar. I think he's trying to set his show up for something similar to what he experienced when Obama won, only this time around he's got to pander to the tatters of the Moral Majority that are left floating around since the GOP took the money and ran.

That doesn't make any sense at all. You misunderstand the entire notion of 'your rights end where my rights begin'.

Obviously murder hurts the other person, it's not about physical pain - please don't be so obtuse.

The man almost deep sized his own media empire to get Ted Cruz elected, following him around like a burnt out stoner on a Dead tour. I don't think Beck's very rational anymore.
