Matt Walsh Destroys “Conservative” Tomi Lahren’s Weak Defense of Roe v. Wade

Published

on

The conservative movement has lots of room in it. Atheists, fundamentalists, Americans, immigrants, homosexuals, traditionalists, can all come together for the sake of one common goal: liberty.

So while one may be able to find some room under our very big tend and also support abortion, they sure as heck better be willing to have their ideas scrutinized by the best and the brightest conservative intellectuals have to offer.

And when it comes to abortion, there’s little room for compromise, so if you’re going to claim conservative and go there, you better be prepared to defend yourself, and defend yourself well.

Sadly for Tomi Lahren, she has tried, and failed, more than once to defend her blatantly pro-choice views.

The twenty-something Fox contributor has ruffled a lot of feathers over the last few years, for her no-holds-barred rants against the left and enthusiastic support for President Trump in the days leading up to the 2016 election.

But when she came out as pro-choice on The View last year, many on the right were pretty disappointed, at best. She lost her job on The Blaze, eventually finding a place on Fox News, where she continued to share her views and commentary on a wide range of issues.

It appeared many had forgotten her controversial views, until she, like many on the left, decided to use the possibility of another conservative Judge on the SCOTUS to pontificate about what a “mistake” it would be for the right to go after overturning Roe v. Wade, attempting to claim that “we lose when we go after social issues.”

Not so fast, Tomi.

The Daily Wire‘s Matt Walsh joined many conservatives who chided Tomi for her inconsistent views, penning a systematic refutation of her claims that we’d “lose” by trying to overturn one of the worst Supreme Court rulings of all time and the most heinous abuse of human life in our history.

He broke her fallacies down into three major ones. First, he says, she’s not the first to suggest the right pivot away from social issues, but there’s little evidence it would actually work. Instead, claiming to take the moral high ground seems to be working out well for the left, who relies heavily upon their perceived morality:

It turns out that people are not primarily motivated by their wallets, even less by a passion for sorting out the affairs of foreign countries. People care most deeply about the issues that speak to their fundamental values and principles. People want to feel that they are fighting for something real, something important, something moral. While Republicans scamper like frightened deer from any discussion of morality, the Left frames almost all of its arguments in moral terms. They frame the arguments wrongly, and dishonestly, but the fact remains that they use moral language. And it works. Republicans say, “Adopt our position because it will make you prosperous and secure.” The Left says (incorrectly), “Adopt our position because it is right and ethical.” Guess who wins hearts and minds — especially the hearts and minds of the younger generation?

Second, he says, while Tomi claims she would “personally choose life”, this is a fence you simply can’t straddle. It’s life or death. You’re either in, or you’re out.

We pro-lifers are either wrong or right. We cannot be anything in between. We leave Tomi Lahren and everyone else no room to straddle the line. The claim we make is too radical, too absolute, too severe. We insist that actual human persons are being legally and systematically murdered by the thousands every day in America. We insist that 60 million such persons have lost their lives in the last few decades. We insist that entire generations are being erased from existence. If we are wrong, then there is no reason to respect us, support us, or “personally agree” with us on any level. We are maniacs and oppressors, and that is what you should call us.

But if we are right, then this matter deserves your undivided attention. If we are right, then our fight is the most important fight in the world. If we are right, then this mere “social issue” dwarfs every other issue and the only criticism you can make of our tactics and our rhetoric is that they are not radical enough. Certainly, at a minimum, if we are right then abortion is a holocaust and our government should abolish this holocaust for the same reason it abolished Hitler’s holocaust. It should abolish it even more so, actually, because it is presently guilty of facilitating and funding this holocaust. So, you must either be radically in agreement with us or radically opposed. I do not see how any rational, thinking person could sit in the middle ground. There is no middle ground.

Finally, Walsh says that if you agree with the left on abortion, you agree with leftism overall:

here’s the problem: to reject the intrinsic worth of human life is to be a materialist. To reject the objectivity of the moral law is to be a moral relativist. Materialism and moral relativism are the two essential pillars, the two defining philosophies, which ground, support, and animate modern leftism. How can a person affirm those pillars, adopt them, argue in favor of them, and yet oppose the Left at the same time? That is like trying to demolish a building with a can of spray paint. You can perhaps deface the building, but it will still stand in the end, substantially uninjured. If you wish to knock down the building, you must knock out the pillars.

And there you have it. Abortion is not an issue like gay marriage or legal marijuana that can find friendly allies on the right who believe in individual liberty.

Our nation is based on divine rights endowed by a moral God, and those rights are endowed to the unborn as well. If Tomi would personally choose life if she found herself pregnant, what possible logic can she use to deny rights to the unborn child of a woman who would choose abortion when she has the option?

VIDEO: Biden Comes Unglued When Fox News Reporter Asks Him About Ukrainian Scandal

Not a good look for you, bro!!

You have to hand it to Joe Biden. When confronted about his alleged Ukrainian scandal, the former VP dodged, deflected, and blamed President Trump like he had that card up his sleeve the entire time. Check this out… From Fox News: Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden exploded on Saturday when Fox News reporter Peter Doocy confronted him over his Ukraine scandal, claiming that he did nothing wrong and that the media should be looking into President Donald Trump. Doocy’s question for Biden centered around Biden’s admission that he used his position as Vice President to shut down a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating a company that was employing Biden’s son. Doocy pondered, “Mr. Vice President, how many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings?” Biden screeched, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. And here’s what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that’s what happened, that appears to be what happened, you should be looking at Trump.” But there’s a problem… https://twitter.com/dmartosko/status/1175480222164160512?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175480222164160512&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1175471237138485249?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175471237138485249&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra Trump weighed in… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1175392716110401543?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175392716110401543&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F52072%2Fwatch-biden-explodes-when-confronted-his-ukraine-ryan-saavedra All we hear about from the left is Russia, Russia, Russia. And yet, years later, there is still zero proof the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton in 2016. However, the evidence against the Hillary Clinton campaign continues to mount. Now, this… From The Hill: Ukraine’s top prosecutor divulged in an interview aired Wednesday on Hill.TV that he has opened an investigation into whether his country’s law enforcement apparatus intentionally leaked financial records during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign about then-Trump…

WATCH: Biden Wants to Put Male Prisoners Who Identify As Women In Prison With Female Convicts

Hmm. What could be the problem there!?

With each passing day, Democrats become sillier and sillier. Saturday appeared to belong to Joe Biden, who may or may not still be the liberal party frontrunner. Check out Joe’s thoughts on mentally ill male convicts who think they are women… Joe Biden – Male convicts that identify as female will be housed with women. “In prison the determination should be that your sexual identity is defined by what you say it is not what in fact the prison says it is.” https://twitter.com/DaveNYviii/status/1175229023603089409?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1175229023603089409&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwoke-joe-biden-says-put-male-prisoners-who-identify-as-women-into-female-prison-pop-because-thats-totally-sane-video%2F Check out this story Biden swears by, even though it is completely made up… From Daily Wire: Last Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden told a rapt audience in New Hampshire a poignant story revolving around a Navy captain who rappelled down a 60-foot ravine to rescue a fallen comrade, but rebuffed Biden’s attempt to pin a Silver Star on his chest because his daring actions to save the soldier came too late. There was one problem: Biden made the story up. The Washington Post reports that Biden told the story of a four-star general who asked Biden, when he was vice-president, to take a dangerous trip to Kunar province in Afghanistan so he could put the Silver Star on the chest of a Navy captain who had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and brought back the body of an American soldier. […] Addressing the silent crowd, Biden concluded, “This is the God’s truth. My word as a Biden.” Liar, liar, pants on fire. It’s time for Joe to concede. That’s saying something, considering this guy was the Democrat frontrunner. It’s looking more and more grim for the former VP who has yet to be endorsed by Barack Obama.
