Tomi Lahren is back. The conservative Fox News commentator known for her racist remarks last month earned the nickname “Xenophobic Rage Barbie” after defending Trump Chief of Staff John Kelly’s anti-immigrant remarks.
Now she is attacking all those on the left, asking why they aren’t “loving and tolerant” – something conservatives claim liberals should be forced to be, even in the face of their own intolerance. And after detailing a litany of insults she feels best represent liberals, while wholly ignoring the extraordinary attacks on America from the right, Lahren demands to know why we can’t all just get along (video below).
“When did we get to the point where we can’t even stand to be in the presence of someone with opposing political views?” Lahren, 25-year old a multi-millionaire with a lucrative Fox News contract and a home in Los Angeles asks. She has literally made millions voicing her ill-informed opinions that consistently distort liberal ideology and attack the left.
“It’s ugly and it’s disheartening to watch,” Lahren says, wholly unaware that her entire manufactured persona exists only because people on the right support her extremist hate-filled views.
“Whether it’s Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders getting kicked out of a restaurant, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Cho being shouted down by students, protesters harassing DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen at a Mexican restaurant, or having water thrown at me while I brunched with my parents – one thing is for sure: The so-called ‘loving and tolerant left’ seems to be anything but,” Lahren charges.
Not once does she bother to tell her viewers that those acts of protest against agents of the U.S government who are supposed to represent the American people (sans Lahren) are all because the Trump administration is separating young children, even babies and toddlers, from their parents and sending them to child concentration camps.
Lahren is literally more upset over the White House press secretary being politely asked to leave a rural Virginia farm-to-table restaurant and getting her cheese plate comped than she is the thousands of children who very likely will never see their parents again.
She then goes after feminists, who she calls “the female empowerment squad,” asking “conservative women mean less to you?” and, “Are we not worthy of your advocacy?”
After claiming she supports same-sex couples turned “away for being gay, or otherwise different,” Lahren concludes: “can we just treat people like people?”
But Lahren is just cherrypicking and lying.
She concludes by going after Rep. Maxine Waters, whose remarks are now getting her death threats from the right. What did the Democratic Congresswoman say that was so offensive Lahren says a Republican saying the same “would have been shamed into resignation”?
This, as NPR reported:
‘If you think we’re rallying now you ain’t seen nothing yet,’ Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif, told supporters at a rally in Los Angeles over the weekend. ‘If you see anybody from that [Trump] Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.’
That, according to Lahren, is cause for exiting Congress.
It’s not. Waters was not advocating for violence, and anyone who claims she was is lying. Period.
Meanwhile, many on social media did “push back” against Lahren’s remarks:

Ah, the classic "we shouldn't be this divisive" and "it's all the left's fault" in the same breath. You're truly a brain genius.

You’re so right tomi. We should be more tolerant of your bigotry and then we can all be complicit bigots. https://t.co/jHhTjpQ7dJ

You've done everything to contribute to this atmosphere and are personally profiting from it. We can read your senseless attacks from a few days ago. You're either a knowing hypocrite or you lack any self-awareness whatsoever.

That’s rich coming from you. Don’t you have a line of merchandise that calls people snowflakes?

Can you be the one that starts it? Because your Twitter feed and your appearances on Fox “News” are anything but. You be the change you want to see. As of now, you are right in tune with the vulgar and divisive narrative of the current administration.

In her two-and-a-half-minute rant, Lahren makes clear: she is exhaustively insincere and uninformed. And she’s not helping America.
Internet scorns Trump for saying D.C. was the ‘safest place on earth last night’: ‘Bunker Boy says what?’
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to proudly proclaim he had succeeded in restoring order to Washington, D.C. last night.
Washington, D.C., was the safest place on earth last night!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 2, 2020
Commenters on social media did not see it the same way.
Did your hear that George W. Bush’s former alum have launched a Super PAC to elect Joe Biden?
Trump campaign provokes outrage with demand that media stop saying protesters were tear gassed
On Tuesday, the Trump campaign issued a statement demanding that the media "correct or retract" the reports that peaceful protesters were tear gassed in front of the White House — citing claims from the U.S. Park Police that the substance used to forcibly disperse the crowd was not tear gas.
This demand did not go over well on social media, with commenters siding with journalists over the official reports — and others asking what the point is for the White House to dispute the type of substance they sprayed at peaceful protesters.
700 paratroopers ‘issued bayonets’ as 82nd Airborne prepares to carry out ‘Operation Themis’ at #DCprotests: report
President Donald Trump's controversial decision to use the United States military against civil rights protesters in Washington, DC could escalate after airborne troops from Fort Bragg were staged outside the capital.
"Aircraft flying over DCA last night in a show of force against #GeorgeFloyd protesters were ordered by President [Trump] - US forces in DC are operating under an official mission: Operation Themis—Greek mythology, Themis = divine law & order," Associated Press correspondent James LaPorta reported Tuesday.
