2. Black Lives Matter
During her sit-down interview with The Daily Show host Trevor Noah, the two discussed a matter of issues Lahren has been vocal about, including her attitudes towards the Black Lives Matter movement. While Tomi began by stating she believed the movement began with good intentions, she claims to have lost complete respect for the cause when protesters grew violent at various publicized riots. Though Tomi felt comfortable writing off an entire anti-government oppression group based on the actions of a minority of members, her rules change when asked about the Trump movement. When Noah mentioned the controversial rise in the ‘Alt-Right’ movement with President Trump’s campaign, Lahren responded, “You have to separate those from Trump supporters at large,”. Because generalization doesn’t benefit her narrative, Tomi disregards the logic she used with Trevor just minutes before. “They say, ‘We are the Black Lives Matter Movement’,” Tomi insisted. Again, we see Tomi concentrating on the wording of a political enemy when the narrative suits her agenda. Even if we were to believe Tomi cares about the way in which protesters are assembling for the Black Lives Matter movement, she contradicts herself with her criticisms of Colin Kaepernick. Lahren has expressed discontent for both violent and peaceful protesting in the name of this movement.
