"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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
