The Real Reason Former Fox News Host Tomi Lahren Is Known As ‘White Power Barbie’
Tomi Lahren wastes no time bashing individuals or movements that contradict her “white people first” agenda. She’s attacked anyone who disagrees with her conservative views, including immigrants, religious groups, and other races, according to The Guardian.
However, she often contradicts assertions and seems confused about the paradox. Lahren’s cluelessness led to the nickname “white power Barbie.” She is unlikely to lose the moniker any time soon, especially after her latest ironic attack (page 5).
1. Tomi Lahren’s attack list is long
She attacked football player Colin Kaepernick’s peaceful protest against police brutality during the National Anthem, GQ reports. Lahren made derogatory comments about Black Lives Matter, Beyonce and her husband Jay Z, and President Obama.
Next: Her support of him isn’t surprising.
2. She may be one of Trump’s biggest fans
Lahren aligns well with Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, anti-liberal views. She said his first year was a tremendous success, slamming opponents for whining while Trump was “making American great again,” according to Fox News.
Next: Despite these strongly held beliefs, she’s said this.
3. She doesn’t see the hypocrisy
She tried to eviscerate Kaepernick by posting a photoshopped image of the football player taking a knee in front of a sea of troops on Twitter. And also lashed out a number of times about his peaceful protest during the National Anthem.
However, she didn’t see the irony when she was slammed for wearing the American flag as a Halloween costume, CBS News reports. The American flag should never be used, “as wearing apparel, bedding or drapery” and “should never be drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free,” according to the U.S. Flag Code,
Next: She walked right into this one.
4. This comment was unbelievable
Lahren told The Daily Show host Trevor Noah she doesn’t “see color,” Vox reports. Meanwhile, she referred to Black Lives Matter as the new KKK and Jay-Z should “go back to rapping your filthy lyrics and celebrating your drug-dealing resume, and let Donald Trump make America great again for us all,” according to Billboard.
Next: Her latest tirade showed, yet again, her cluelessness.
5. She slammed immigrants, but cried foul when this happened
Lahren happily launched an anti-immigrant tweet, plus made strong comments about immigrants who don’t speak English. “It’s not a right. You don’t just come into this country with low skills, low education, not understanding the language and come into our country because someone says it makes them feel nice,” The Huffington Post reports.
Her comment came back to bite her when a genealogist revealed Lahren’s great-great-great-grandmother still spoke German after coming to the U.S. 41 years prior. Also, her great-great-grandmother didn’t learn English after living in the U.S. for at least 10 years.
Next: Of course this was Lahren’s response.
6. No fair!
Lahren played the victim on Fox and Friends in response to the genealogist’s revelation. “A woman over the weekend took it upon herself to research my family history, in the hopes of digging up some kind of a ‘GOTCHA’ moment,” The Huffington Post reports. “A ‘GOTCHA’ angle to validate illegal immigration and open borders.”
Next: Meanwhile she’s lamented about this for some time.
7. Stop doing this if you oppose her
She whined when a genealogist called her out for making racist remarks against immigrants. But insists anyone who opposes her should suck it up.
Her rants about the “liberal snowflake” needing “safe spaces, nothing is free, screaming doesn’t make you right and never everyone is a winner” generated a backlash wave.
Next: She’s also been busted for these comments too.
8. More Barbie-like moments sealed her fate
Other statements contradicted anti-liberal tirades. Lahren admitted she was still on her parent’s health care plan, after making disparaging remarks at Obamacare, according to Elite Daily. Plus, she proudly stated her birth control only costs $9 without insurance but forgot President Obama issued a mandate to make birth control affordable.
