"Conservatives Have It Harder Than Women": Tomi Lahren Blasted by Leftist Media for Speaking the Truth

"Conservatives Have It Harder Than Women": Tomi Lahren Blasted by Leftist Media for Speaking the Truth

At a recent leadership conference in Dallas, TX, former Blaze host Tomi Lahren gave an honest talk to an audience of like-minded colleagues, peers and teens. 

During her talk, Lahren shared her view on gender rights, telling listeners "There is no better place to be a woman than the United States of America." Lahren is absolutely correct, especially when considering the numerous examples of abuse taking place in non-European countries including Sharia Law and modern-day slavery:

In contrast to the rights women have fought for and earned in the greatest nation on earth, Lahren points out that ideological freedom is still severely lacking in the American political arena. She talks about how hard it is to be a conservative in America and shares her experiences with other women confiding in her that "one of the hardest things to be is a conservative."

To prove her correct, leftist journalist Laurel Dammann decided to write a piece at Carbonated calling Lahren's views "bizarre."

From the article:

Before we clear up some of the misinformation in Lahren’s statement, we should note that entering into the Oppression Olympics is never a good idea (at the end of this article we’ll give an example of why). We can recognize the nuanced and intersecting struggles of different groups without comparing them, but since Lahren’s playing the victim, let’s explain a few things.

Yes, the "Oppression Olympics" are a ridiculous exercise to be sure, but last we checked, it's not conservatives crying about microaggressions, asking for safe spaces or propagating myths about "rape culture" and the gender wage gap. Conservatives don't complain about being oppressed, they complain that leftists aren't willing to let them speak freely, including female ones.

The 2017 Best Countries Report ranked the U.S. as number 16 in the world in terms of its policies and practices in regards to women, with countries like Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and Canada among the top five best countries for women to live.

Is it just coincidence that the top five countries on the list are all nations with insanely high tax rates and a socialist welfare system? Is Dammann implying that the "best" places for women are places where big governments provide everything? Is the implication that women can't take care of themselves? How sexist.

Considering that U.S. policies and practices concerning discrimination put it on the same level as Iran, it ranks 65th in the world in terms of wage equality, and women only make up 19.4 percent of the 535 seats in Congress, to insinuate that women here have it the best is ignorance.

The CNN article Dammann cites as proof that the U.S. is anything like Iran is hilariously wrong. You'd need to be a complete idiot to believe that the U.S. similarly discriminates against women by forbidding them to vote, drive, get educated or leave the house without an escort — all things women are prohibited from doing in Iran. Just because men make up the majority of Congress does not mean women don't have equal rights — it's a non sequitur at best. 

Lahren also does a great disservice to all women when she enables the belittling of the very real struggles they go through. If she tells conservative women that it’s great to be a woman in America, but hard to be a conservative, she’s fostering party allegiance at the expense of gender equality. She is feeding ideas that keep women of different political beliefs divided when it is actually in the best interest of them all to work together.

Dammann doesn't seem to realize it's possible for more than one thing to be true at the same time. Just because Lahren says it's hard to be conservative in America (true, regardless of gender) does not mean women face no hardships — the question is whether or not injustices are "systematic." Spoiler alert: It isn't.

By and large, there are many more things conservative women share with liberal women than they do with the Republican Party.

When women approach Lahren and say that being a conservative is hard, we have to believe them. America is a heavily polarized nation right now and it’s not uncommon for people to socialize exclusively in circles of like-minded folk, rejecting those who might think differently than they do out of fear of rejection from their own communities.

When someone says that it is hard to be a conservative, it’s not right to utterly discredit them. However, when they compare that struggle to the struggles of others, the waters get choppy, especially when we look at where the power in America lies. 

At the end of the day, guess who has more seats in Congress than women? Conservatives. Guess who’s in the White House? Conservatives. Guess who is making decisions that will impact the lives of millions of women across America and the world? 

Yep, conservatives.

Putting aside the derisive tone Dammann affects in her article, it's not Republicans don't want to associate with Democrats, they often can't given their leftist proclivity for lies and general lack of tolerance.

Women like Dammann are the real sexists, painting a picture of a feeble woman that needs to be protected and treated with kid gloves, taking handouts from a bloated government. It's completely without merit and demeans the bravery of conservatives (both men and women) like Tomi Lahren that speak out despite leftist efforts at silencing them.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
