When You Speak Up for Tomi Lahren, You’re Speaking Up for Racism
Tomi Lahren will be shielded by predictable white feminists who are pro-choice but actually kinda agree that Black Lives Matter takes it too far.
Tomi Lahren was banned from the waste-of-space conservative TV dump known as The Blaze for announcing on ABC’s The View that she is pro-choice.
“I am someone that’s for limited government,” she said. “So 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 should do with their bodies.’”
Funny how that works, huh? Restricting the rights of black and brown immigrants is A-OK but the second Tomicillin Laryngitis feels her rights being squeezed, all of a sudden it’s not cool for conservatives to be misogynistic, Viagra-popping, toxic slimebags.
But oh, of course, not to worry, I’m just a mean brown feminist who’s divisive and always talks about “identity politics” and race. Tomigotchi Lacrosse will be shielded by predictable white feminists who are pro-choice but actually kinda agree that Black Lives Matter takes it too far and that Michael Brown *did* look awfully menacing.
@TomiLahren Sounding off in support of this lady. You should never be trapped in what thoughts a group thinks you should have.

@TomiLahren hi Tomi, I don't support all your beliefs but I do support you on Womens rights. Ty for standing up for what you believe in.

Let’s make one thing clear: supporting Tamoxicillin Lahren is a waste of time. Supporting racism isn’t feminist. It isn’t even decent. It makes you a racist, just like her. Unfortunately, there is very little that surprises me when it comes to white feminists. The Women’s March was a great example of how to completely disregard Native American women, Black women, trans people, Latinx women, Muslim women and nonbinary folks.
Ignoring the intersections is basically what white feminists do best: rather than confronting their own biases and the white privilege they benefit from, they focus their energy on protecting whiteness at all costs because it’s the one source of power they have.
They can hang out with Tomi Lostherjob, Taylor Swift and Lena Dunham, but I’m going to sit right here and select which Rep. Maxine Waters pic is the best response to tweets by white feminists who defend her.
