Today we'll discuss the limits (assuming the exist) of both free speech and police power. I two separate stories the government has is attempting to expand its power by diminishing the 1st amendment and second amendment while at the same time increasing policing power.
These are two issues that should bring all sides together. Both ones freedom of speech and the right to defend one's home and family are issues that unite us as a people when presented correctly. What I'm going to do today is give you the template to use when discussing these issues.
Tomi Lahren came out last week on the daytime talk show "The View" as pro-choice and chastised those who claimed to support limited government while suggesting the government should decide what she can do with her body.
Her comments immediately generated headlines which were likely the intent. Conservatives took to the internet to discredit Tomi and her statements.
I've been a critic of Tomi since I became aware of her shortly after she joining The Blaze TV. I don't dislike her because she's an attractive and successful conservative. I dislike her because she's dumb. I could be kind and say she's not very well informed, but the truth is she presents herself as a conservative thought leader in America, but her opinions are short on "thought." She, like Milo, is engaged in shock-commentary and like Milo, she has taken things one step to far. But I don't think Tomi needs to worry. This latest revelation will likely do nothing but strengthen her appeal and her value to an industry that puts controversy and provocative rhetoric above substance.
