Multiple media outlets reported late Sunday night that Glenn Beck fired Tomi Lahren. An insider told the media the reason for her termination is her pro-choice view. The insider claims Beck is trying to be more conservative. Interesting way to accomplish that by firing someone for exercising their right to free speech:
“Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites. He’s trying to balance being a leading conservative thinker and also someone who can unify the country. He just couldn’t sit by and watch as Tomi Lahren said there’s no way for conservatives to justify anything other than being pro-choice.” – Beck insider
The controversy started when Lahren appeared on “The View.” During her appearance she said she was pro-choice. She also called any conservative that was not pro-choice a hypocrite:
“I am a constitutional (conservative). I am someone that loves the constitution and someone for limited government, so I can’t stand here and be a hypocrite and say I am for limited government but tell women what to do with their bodies.” – Tomi Lahren
75% of Conservatives Disagree with Beck
We ran a poll on our Facebook properties. We asked conservative readers the question “Should Tomi Lahren of been suspended?” 75% disagreed with her suspension, 15% agreed, and 10% was undecided. If all conservatives feel this way Glenn Beck is in some serious trouble. Glenn Beck’s “The Blaze” once had offices in New York and 300 employees. Now, the New York office is closed and the staff is half that size. Beck’s website attracted 29,000,000 visitors per month in 2014, in 2017 it’s only 8,800,000. His radio show has slipped from the No. 3 spot to the No. 5 spot. Glenn Beck cannot afford to upset 75% of his audience by being a hypocrite himself.
The only people celebrating Beck’s decision are liberals
The only people celebrating Lahren getting fired are liberals. Several took to twitter to celebrate:
Not the end of Tomi
Many in the media have speculated that Tomi Lahren will end up at Fox news. The question is when. Lahren was under contract at The Blaze until September 2017. Glenn Beck “banned” Lahren from appearing on The Blaze permanently. Does this release her from her contract? If so I wouldn’t be surprised if Fox News picked her up immediately.
