Glenn Beck Slams Blaze TV Host Tomi Lahren After Abortion Comments
THe Hill ^ | 03/20/17 09:35 AM EDT | By Joe Concha

The Blaze founder Glenn Beck on Monday took to Twitter to question whether one of the most popular television hosts on his network was intellectually honest.

Beck was criticizing Tomi Lahren, host of TheBlaze TV’s “Tomi.”

Lahren has been criticized in some conservative circles after a Friday appearance on ABC’s "The View" for revealing that she supports abortion rights.

“You know what? I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well,” Lahren said. On Monday, Lahren tweeted that she has “moderate, conservative, and libertarian views.”

“I'm human. I will never apologize, to anyone, for being an independent thinker.”

Beck, a former Fox News host, shot back at Lahren on Twitter on Monday.

“Wait, libertarian views? Help me out on Trumpcare, stimulus, and executive orders. Trump is anything but libertarian,” wrote Beck, while adding the hashtag #intellectualhonesty.

The Daily Caller reported last week that Lahren is considering parting ways with the Blaze “in September if not sooner.”

The 24-year-old University of Nevada, Las Vegas graduate has 4.3 million followers on her Facebook page and more than 665,000 followers on Twitter.

I’m confused, didn’t she just call PP baby killers on one of her videos?

The problem is one cannot have an abortion by oneself. Others must come to murder the baby too. There is nothing libertarian about that conspiracy. The real issue is whether abortion “rights”/pushing would still go on if men involved were forced to part pay for the pregnancy. Then and only then can we say the woman can make an independent decision, and not when her economics are disadvantaged by abandonment.

Well his network he can do whatever he wants. The whole thing is probably a setup knowing him to draw ratings.

Glenn Beck doesn’t do his own research, doesn’t write his own books. I have no interest in his Donald Trump criticisms.

He’s some left wing nutcase that hates Trump but loves Islam and gay fake marriage. There’s also something about a planet Kolob.

You can watch the scene yourself, she says you cant be conservative and pro-life at the same time, on The View.

I think the individual should decide on what to do with their body. That doesn’t mean I’m pro abortion, I just don’t think the federal gov’t should mandate it either way.

She doesn't seem to understand that killing your baby is taking away another person's rights, to life.

But you do understand that, right?

Abortion should have never become a “Federal” issue. Should have been left up to the States to decide what they want.

This issue is too complicated and has too big of grey area to have a definite answer on it.

My main problem with Abortion in this day and age is that if people do not want children and/or want to prevent pregnancy then there are a plethora of ways to do it. Yet here we are still using abortion. I can see where there may be circumstances where there is no choice, the usual; life of the mother, rape, and incest. But as a birth control choice, No.

I will have to llok at that clip to see what she said since so many things can be taken out of context.

If you support abortion for rape then you are pro-choice. Thanks for putting yourself on this forum.

An embryo has a heartbeat at five weeks. Do you know anyone that has two hearts? How then is an embryo merely a body part of the mother?

.....left wing nutcase that hates Trump but loves Islam and gay fake marriage.....
*******************
He truly doesn’t understand Trump but he is coming around as he see’s his actions... To say he loves Islam is just wrong, he has been sounding the warning longer than anyone... as for marriage I believe his position ,, that gov’t should NOT be involved is the correct one.

What do you not understand about pro-choice being pro-abortion? Yes, you are pro-choice by your own words.

One thing this Tomi bimbo has done has brought the pro-aborts out of the woodwork. I suggest you all take a good look at yourselves.
