Tomi Lahren’s Obama rant has gone viral.
The 22-year-old conservative news anchor for the One American News Network recently opened up about her feelings for Obama following the deadly attacks in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
Being brutally honest, Lahren, who hosts On Point with Tomi Lahren on the network, called out President Obama for his “half-baked, tip-toe, be-friendly-to-Jihadis mentality” in the Middle East, in a brazen on-air rant which has since gone viral with more than two million views as of Wednesday, July 22.
Lahren’s very passionate speech comes just days after 24-year-old shooter Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire on two separate military bases, killing five military personnel — four Marines and one U.S. Navy Sailor, the New York Daily News reports. While Abdulazeez is described as a devout Muslim, there has currently been no connection found between him and ISIS or any other extremist groups.
“Now this won’t take long, but it’s important,” Lahren says in the beginning of the clip. “Four United States Marines are now dead. Climate change didn’t kill them. Lack of free community college didn’t kill them. The income gap, wage inequality? Nope, not those things either. Gay marriage? Nope. Uh, white racism? Not that either.”
“So what did? President Obama, if you won’t say it, I will — radical Islam. This is not workplace violence; this is not a criminal act with motives unknown — this is terrorism. What he linked to ISIS or al-Qaida or Hamas, or any of the other 15-plus offshoot terrorist groups? Does it matter? I’m sorry, but radical Islam is becoming the rule, not the exception. Yesterday’s moderate is today’s terrorist.
I care that this SOB killed four of our United States Marines, and I care that our Commander in Chief is more concerned with Muslim sensitivity than the honor and sacrifice made by these Marines. Do I care that he seemed like an all-American young man? Do I care that he was good at mixed martial arts or a smart quiet guy? Do I care that his high school friends would not classify him as ‘overly religious’? No, I don’t give a flying you-know-what about any of that. Let’s show them what the United States of America looks like up close and personal. Show them what they’re messing with. Put the fear of God in their desert, because clearly our lack of strategy isn’t working.”
Tomi, who comes from a military family and is dating a Navy SEAL who’s currently serving in the Middle East, originally applied to the network as an intern after graduating from University of Nevada, Las Vegas, according to the Daily Mail. She never thought she would actually land an anchor’s position so soon at the young age of 22. However, the network urges people to not be biased against her based on her age.
One American News Network, the San Diego-based cable news channel that launched in 2013, released a statement following Friday’s episode of On Point with Tomi Lahren, calling her show the “newest political talk show.”
“Tomi is the youngest show host in the political talk arena. Don’t let her age fool you, she knows her stuff and appreciates both like-minded and opposing voices,” the statement read. “On Point with Tomi Lahren is the newest political talk show on One America News Network. The show is an even platform for news discussion from all sides of the political spectrum, providing a fresh analysis of the issues facing our nation in an open and informative dialogue.”
