Tomi Lahren: Police will shoot blacks on ‘regular basis’ until they condemn Black Lives Matter

Published

on

Self-appointed angry white woman Tomi Lahren lobbed another rant against Black Lives Matter onto the Internet.

Lahren, who hosts a show on Glenn Beck’s channel, The Blaze, complained that Black Lives Matter activists had rallied around Korynn Gaines, a black woman shot and killed by police following a lengthy armed standoff that she partially broadcast on social media.

“Who the hell would do that?” Lahren said. “Is that the definition of your Black Lives Matter? And what about the black life of her son, she used him as a tool, a prop, in her video — real mother of the year there. Is this the kind of thing that Black Lives Matter wants to get behind?”

Police said Gaines, who was wanted on a bench warrant in connection with a March traffic stop, made violent threats against them and fired a shotgun after officers fired their own guns. Gaines’ 5-year-old son was wounded in the gunfire.

“Gaines and her boyfriend are criminals, they’re instigators — are they really the face of your movement?” Lahren asked. “If not, speak the hell up.”

The viral video star argued that police violence against black Americans could be justified if civil rights activists did not “speak the hell up” and express views that aligned with her own.

“Do you want others in your community to incite deadly force and get shot? If not, speak the hell up,” Lahren said, bouncing in her seat for emphasis. “Do you want toddlers caught up in the crossfire, listening to their mother threaten police? If not, speak the hell up. Hate is taught, victimhood is taught.”

Lahren continued thrashing a series of strawman arguments to justify police violence against black suspects.

“The notion that a black suspect can do no wrong and is always the victim is B.S. This doesn’t end well for anyone — anyone,” she said, leaning into the camera, “All lives matter, so speak the hell up before this kind of thing starts happening on a regular basis. Is it worth a hashtag or a riot in your name to lose your life? If not, speak the hell up. You’re killing yourselves and your communities, but you’re so caught up in your victimhood and your self-righteous B.S. you don’t see it. Tell me your gangs, are they worth the loss?”

With 14,000 followers, he posts almost daily, giving explanations on the latest scientific research and, in particular, aims to fight misinformation that spreads as fast as the virus itself.

He is among a growing number of doctors, academics and institutions who in recent weeks have adapted and amplified their scientific messaging in hopes of countering what has been termed an infodemic -- a deluge of information, including widespread false claims, which experts say can pose a serious threat to public health.

Days later, he escalated by laying out body bags on the steps of the Florida capitol building in Tallahassee.

He escalated further on Saturday by announcing he would be handing out body bags to Florida beachgoers and started a fundraiser with the funds going to two progressive Political Action Committees.
