Seasons come and go, but some snowflakes last forever…
On December 21st, The Rouser reported on a incident where Tomi Lahren apparently wanted to avoid questions regarding her abortion stance which caused the media scandal behind her firing at TheBlaze less than a year ago.
Students are in an uproar at Turning Point USA’s West Palm Beach Student Action Summit where at least a dozen students were denied asking political commentator Tomi Lahren why she supports abortion.
Baylor University student Chloe Knox was the first student to be denied after her question was screened by a TPUSA employee.
“Was this a joke?” The majority of this week was spent in discussion on banning free-speech zones, censorship, and being able to talk openly about controversial topics,” Knox told The Rouser.
The question was far from out of bounds or inappropriate:
“You are perhaps best known for being an outspoken advocate for our armed forces and law enforcement. In fact, the one major government power you support is the common defense of Americans. However, the one group you do not believe deserves protection from the government is the most vulnerable population—unborn children. You claim that government should stay out of your body, my body, and all other women’s bodies. My question is that if it’s been scientifically proven that unborn children are their own separate organisms with their own unique human DNA and beating hearts, how can you claim that abortion is a right to YOUR own body?”
I reached out to Knox to get some further clarification on the whole incident.
Remso: When the TPUSA employee stated you couldn’t ask the question you wanted to submit to Tomi, what was the first thought that went through your mind?
Chloe Knox: I thought that there must have been a mistake. I asked him to double check, because surely TPUSA wouldn’t censor pro-life questions. I pointed him to my seat and asked him to return to me once he figured it out. He did not return, and actually continued sending students away with similar questions.
