BlazeTV anchor Tomi Lahren smacked down the hosts of TMZ Live who tried to make the Black Panthers seem like a civic organization.
Lahren is getting attention after her rant slamming Beyonce’s Super Bowl 50 halftime salute to the Black Panthers went viral earlier this week.
The hosts, Harvey Levin and Charles Latibeaudiere, did their best to defend the Black Panthers by saying that the group only used violence in response to violence, but Lahren killed that argument.
“Is that the correct message to be sending? You got leaders, thought leaders and movement leaders like Martin Luther King, that (were) saying we want equality, we want to do this the right way,” Lahren said via Skype.
“Then you have the Black Panthers saying, ‘no, let’s react to violence with violence and that’s how we’re going to respond.’ No, if Beyonce would have saluted Martin Luther King, (I) wouldn’t have taken an issue with it. It’s the fact that you supported a group that says ‘I don’t think peace works, we’re going to use violence,'” Lahren continued.
“Is that what you guys want? You want to go about it in a violent manner? Is that the solution?” she asked. “We’ve got police brutality, we’ve got officer involved shootings, so the solution to that is to have a race war against each other?”
Despite death threats from Beyonce fans Lahren said, on a video posted to Facebook, that her voice won’t be silenced.
She reiterated that point to the TMZ Live hosts.
“I expressed myself,” she told Levin and Latibeaudiere. “I’m using my First Amendment right to do so. And those that want to attack my using their First Amendment rights? Go for it. But I would just suggest that they do it in a way that wasn’t violent or in the use of profanity, but I guess that might be too much to ask for some of these fans.”
