A conservative news anchor has been catapulted to internet celebrity status after a video of her blasting President Barack Obama’s efforts in the fight against terrorism went viral.
Tomi Lahren, host of One America News Network’s On Point with Tomi Lahren, called out Obama’s administration for their ‘half-way, half-baked, tip-toe, be-friendly-to-Jihadis mentality’ in a passionate speech that has been viewed more than 755,000 times on YouTube.
The conservative 22-year-old’s comments, said on Friday’s episode on the fringe broadcast network, were in reference to the fatal shooting of four U.S. Marines and one active-duty Navy reservist, in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on Thursday.
The 24-year-old shooter, who was also killed, was identified as a devout Muslim named Mohammad Abdulazeez.
Lahren, who comes from a family of Marines, said that ‘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,’ she added.
Lahren, who is originally from Rapid City, South Dakota, said outright that Abudlazeez’s acts were an act of terrorist.
‘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,’ she said.
