Tomi Lahren: My ‘most important’ battle is making whites less afraid of offending blacks

Published

Tomi Lahren has unkind words for soccer star Megan Rapinoe (Screen cap).

Tomi Lahren may not be at The Blaze anymore, but she’s not giving up on fighting her biggest battle: Talking about race in America.

In an interview with Playboy, Lahren was asked to name the “most important cultural battle” she’s waging, and she didn’t hesitate before saying, “Race.”

“I think race in America is a huge one,” she said. “I think that’s something that needs to be confronted, certainly.”

When asked how she’s confronting this topic, Lahren went off on a lengthy diatribe about how white people now feel too intimidated to talk about racial issues.

“For so long it’s been, ‘Those are black issues that white people can’t talk about them,'” she explained. “Okay, but if you’re calling me a racist and saying white people don’t understand you, wouldn’t white people inherently have to be a part of that conversation? I actually had a conversation with Charlamagne [tha God] about this, that there are white people who are afraid to talk about race because they don’t want to be labeled a racist, so they don’t want to talk about the issues; they don’t even want to talk to black people because they’re so afraid they’ll slip up and be offensive. Which is a huge problem. We’re segregating ourselves because we’re afraid we’re going to offend each other.”

In the past, Lahren has not been shy about weighing in on race issues. Among other things, she has said that black people risk getting shot by police unless they condemn the Black Lives Matter movement to show officers that they aren’t against cops; has compared Black Lives Matter to the Ku Klux Klan; and has told former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to be grateful for having two white parents who adopted him after his black father abandoned him.

Lincoln Project issues lawyer letter mocking Jared and Ivanka’s billboard threat

Published

on

The Lincoln Project is staffed with a slate of Republicans using a unique set of ads to bring down President Donald Trump. One of the latest is a billboard in New York City's Times Square, where many tourists often visit when they are in town.

The ad features a photo of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, which prompted the first family to lash out at the organization demanding the billboard be taken down or they would sue for "what will doubtless be enormous compensatory and punitive damages."

In response to the letter, the Lincoln Project's lawyers fired off a letter of their own:

Confused Trump can’t stop talking about the new military ‘hydrosonic’ toothbrush missile

Published

on

President Donald Trump spent some of his time at his Ohio rally Saturday, saying that under his leadership, the military has developed a secret hydrosonic missile.

There's just one problem: Hydrosonic is a toothbrush.

The Hydrosonic Pro is a Curaprox product that boasts "ultra-fine, gentle CUREN® filaments."Hypersonic missiles are weapons that can travel at 17 times the speed of sound and Navy warships will be outfitted with them. Trump also seems confused about the facts, saying that the missile travels at five times the speed of normal missiles.

‘Jarring’: PA Trump fans attack polls making so much noise poll workers couldn’t read instructions to voters

Published

on

One Pennsylvania polling place fell under a full out attack on those standing in line to vote and trying to cast a ballot on Saturday.

In a Twitter thread, Behavioral Economist Alex Imas explained that while he was casting his ballot on the outskirts of Philadelphia County, PA Saturday, a parade of semis and other cars surrounded the polling place, laying on their horns.

"I arrived just as polling place opened. Short line. Thought I'd be in and out in 20 minutes tops. Even w/ this short line, it took 2+ hours," he explained.

"Then the next Semi followed, then the 3rd," he continued. "A motorcade of semis, jeeps, and a few sedans drove down the road. All honking. All flying Trump 2020 flags. With people yelling out the window. This motorcade snaked around the polling place the entire time I was there (2 hrs)."
