Tomi Lahren gets livid and complains that she’s not allowed to be proud of ‘heterosexuality’

Published

on

Fox News pundit Tomi Lahren is coming out for “straight pride,” and she’s attacking LGBT people and allies who are opposed to the proposed “Straight Pride Parade” this summer in Boston.

“I’m not afraid to say it. I’m straight and proud. There, deal with it!” Lahren said in her Fox Nation “First Thoughts” rant Wednesday, as The Daily Beast reports.

“I have no issue with LGBT people being proud of who they are,” Lahren claimed – despite her long history of attacks against the LGBT community. “I could do without seeing men in Speedos and butt-less chaps parading through the streets,” she offered, mispronouncing “chaps.”

Amid a cacophony of curious hand gestures, she concluded: “But whatever. You do you.”

“Sadly, at least in Boston, straight people aren’t allowed to parade their heterosexuality for all to see,” she claimed, ignoring one LGBT writer and activist’s witty observations.

“It is open-season on straight white men in this country,” Lahren added, fueling criticisms that she has repeatedly made racist remarks in the past, “and y’all aren’t allowed to celebrate your straightness.”

“Why is it so taboo nowadays to recognize and be proud of heterosexuality or traditional values in general?” she asked, rhetorically – rather than asking people who are actually knowledgeable about discrimination and right-wing extremism.

“Can that not be a thing anymore? According to who? I’m sick of this!” she cried. “Enough with that crap!” Lahren concluded.

Perhaps Lahren’s rush to defend the straight pride parade and its organizers left her no time to learn that they have disturbing far right wing histories and links to at least one hate group.

WATCH: Klobuchar uses Trump’s own intel advisors to blast GOP’s inaction on election security

Published

on

Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), a 2020 presidential candidate, blasted her Republican colleagues on the Senate floor Tuesday morning over an election security bill.

Klobuchar wants to attach the legislation, known as the Secure Elections Act, to a defense spending bill. But the move faces opposition from GOP leadership and the White House.

“We know one thing, and who do we know it from? We know it from the president’s own national intelligence director, we know it from his FBI director, we know it from all of his security leaders, and that is that Russia invaded our democracy,” Klobuchar said.

Indicted GOP lawmaker spent campaign cash on affairs with three different lobbyists and one of his own staffers: DOJ

Published

on

A new filing from the Department of Justice claims that Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) has had multiple extramarital affairs since first taking office in 2009 -- including three with registered lobbyists and one with one of his own staff members.

According to the DOJ filing, as flagged by USA Today's Brad Heath, Hunter illegally used money donated to his congressional campaign to "carry out a series of intimate relationships" with women who were all involved in politics.

The DOJ argued that it needs to be able to discuss these affairs in front of jury in order to prove Hunter deliberately misused campaign funds.

The View erupts when Meghan McCain complains her dad suffered worse than migrant kids while held as war prisoner

Published

on

Meghan McCain tempered her outrage over the Trump administration's detention of children because she feels her father endured worse treatment as a captured Navy airman during the Vietnam War.

"The View" co-host agreed migrant children were being held in inhumane conditions along the southern border, but she found it hard to summon moral outrage.

"I just want to say one quick thing," she said. "Apparently, by the way, me saying, 'Can I say one quick thing,' is now becoming a parody -- it's just how I talk, it's one of my tics, I'm sorry.

"Calling these places torture facilities -- I understand it's a humanitarian crisis," McCain continued. "It's horrific to detain -- like you said, people in jail get soap and people in jail get toothpaste -- but I know what a torture facility looks like. I've been to one."

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
