Tomi Lahren of Fox News fame is largely recognized as a mouthpiece for anything from conservative to alt-right to White supremacist talking points. The Fox Nation host also frequently steps in it on Twitter.
Lahren has been called out numerous times for hypocritical declarations about Black and brown skinned people. Now she’s done it again.
On Tuesday, Lahren posted:
“If you traipse your kid 2,000 miles in dangerous conditions you’re not only a criminal, you’re a shi**y parent.”
If 2,000 miles is criminal, what is 3,220 miles? Will Lahren be campaigning to have the pilgrims that landed in Massachusetts declared disgraceful criminals?
Or what about traveling 4,753 or 4,259 miles? Did Lauren’s ancestors—who hailed from Norway and Germany and settled in South Dakota—all remain childless until the end of their journey over twice the distance Lahren condemned?
If not, is Lahren proclaiming her ancestors criminals and shi**y parents?
People felt perhaps she failed to think her latest diatribe through carefully.
And while many schooled Lahren on US history and her own Christian beliefs, others found purpose in her Twitter posts.
Many people currently in the United States traveled thousands of miles through dangerous conditions for the hope of a better life. To learn more, the book Coming to America: A History of Immigration and Ethnicity in American Life is available here.
