Tomi Lahren Had A Drink Thrown On Her, And I'm Wondering Where My Invitation Was

Seriously, why wasn't I invited?

Recently, at a small restaurant in Minneapolis, conservative reporter and Fox contributor Tomi Lahren had a drink thrown on her by a patron, and I'm left wondering why I wasn't invited. Perhaps my invitation got lost in the mail.

All jokes aside, I do think that it probably wasn't the best idea to throw water on Tami. This is not because I feel bad for her, but because I worry that this will give her more ammunition than she already thinks she has.

Anyone who knows me knows that I can't stand Tomi Lahren. She is an absolute disgrace to the United States. She says things that she thinks are so cutting edge, but every word out of her mouth is either racist, insulting, contradictory to something she had previously said, or just plain stupid.

Some of the worst things about Tobi include her inability to sympathize with black America, her constant rants against "snowflakes," her racist tweets, her inability to understand the gun problem in American, and her desire to see immigrants in graves.

Tomi is under the impression that if somebody talks about the atrocities that Black America faces every day, from being shot for holding a cell phone to being violently pulled out of their own cars due to having a broken taillight, then that person must hate all police officers. Stable people know that there are good cops, but that there are also corrupt cops. Tomi is either too dim to understand this, or she is a racist. Probably both.

Taxi's biggest problem with liberals is that we are "snowflakes" because we complain too much, yet her job is literally to complain. The irony of this is probably lost on her. Unlike Tomi, liberals are upset over issues that actually matter.

We are upset that black Americans are sentenced to life in prison for smoking weed when white males are sentenced to less than 6 months in prison for rape. We are upset that women's healthcare is constantly being restricted and that women are losing the rights to their own bodies.

We are upset that the President of the United States is a racist who has been accused of multiple accounts of sexual assault. We are upset that this same man only took 24 hours to personally acknowledge that Tomi Lahren had a drink thrown on her, but took 22 days to acknowledge a hero named James Shaw, who risked his life to stop a shooter at a Waffle House and then raised $250,000 for victims of gun violence. We are upset that the "leaders" of our country are failing us.

We are upset that people are constantly being killed and yet there are still no restrictions on guns. We are upset that animals are abused every day and that the environment is in danger of drowning in plastic.

I could go on forever, but the point is that white supremacists don't belong on the air, and they certainly don't belong in office. Tomi is not someone to stand by, and she is certainly not someone to look up to.

Sometimes it's easy for someone to adopt a "me, me, me" attitude. While focusing on oneself, a person may feel nice in the moment, but serving and helping others will bring lasting benefits. While there are many great reasons to serve and help others, there are three universal truths that resonate with volunteers around the globe.

Austin Alexander Burridge's 3 Reasons to Volunteer:

1. Accomplishment

Often, people fall into a trap of focusing on themselves when they are feeling down. Maybe someone did not get a job they wanted. Or perhaps a person gets dumped by an expected lifelong companion. Maybe someone feels they have underachieved after looking at Facebook and seeing great things a high school classmate has accomplished. When feeling down, helping others is a proven way to improve one's mood and attitude, and it can provide a sense of pride and accomplishment. The act of giving to those in need is an inherently good action and leaves people with a wonderful feeling of joy.

2. Gratitude

One can become more appreciative of life by serving others that have less. Whether volunteering at a soup kitchen, visiting the elderly at an assisted living center, or helping families after a natural disaster, service enables people to be grateful for what they have. Seeing people who have fewer advantages, especially those who are spirited and thankful for small things, allows one to realize just how fortunate he/she is in life.

3. Friendships

Volunteering is a great way to build meaningful friendships, not only with other volunteers but also with those who are served. One of the most profound and fascinating aspects of these relationships is how volunteers will learn from those served and vice versa. As these special bonds are built, they lead to impactful connections that last for years to come.

Of course, these are just a few reasons to volunteer and serve others. One can never go wrong by helping others as opposed to merely focusing on oneself. Volunteering invariably and inevitably contributes to personal growth, development, and satisfaction.

About Austin Alexander Burridge: Helping others has been of paramount importance to Austin, and as a part of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), Austin gave back to the community around him. He also has participated in annual peanut butter drives, The Minnesota Sandwich Project for the Homeless and collected canned goods for local food shelters. Additionally, Austin has a passion for the environment, which he pursued when visiting the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, and the Amazon Rain Forest while studying at the School of Environment Studies, which investigates ecological systems and their sustainability

Democrats Need To Split From Ilhan Omar Because Of Her Radicalism

Ilhan Omar's actions are only making matters worse for the Democrats and the country.

Many freshman representatives have been gaining a fair amount of traction recently, either by the things they say or the legislation they push. One of these is Congresswoman Ilhan Omar from Minnesota. However, the reasons for the attention she has garnered are more negative than positive.

Earlier in March, Ilhan Omar accused American Jews of "dual loyalty," an anti-Semitic trope that has been used many times throughout history. She proclaimed, "I want to talk about the political influence in this country that says that it is OK for people to push for allegiance to a foreign country." When Democrat Representative Nita Lowey called her out for such comments, Omar responded by saying, "I should not be expected to have allegiance/pledge support to a foreign country in order to serve my country in Congress."

Most recently, she has come under fire over her comments on the 9/11 terrorist attacks, referring to this horrific event as "some people did something." Here's the full quote:

"For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I'm tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it. CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties."

She could have reasonably apologized for that comment, saying that she used a poor choice of words and did not really mean it. But instead, she doubled down. Omar tweeted a quote from George W. Bush that says, "The people — and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon."She then followed up in the same tweet asking, "was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack? What if he was a Muslim?"

Omar and her defenders say that she is being criticized because she is a person of color and for her Muslim faith. However, there are other Muslim and African-American Congress members who aren't under any scrutiny like her. They don't associate themselves with anti-Semitism and downplay terrorism like Ilhan Omar did.

Now, Omar and her companions are suggesting that a video Trump tweeted, juxtaposing her 9/11 comments with footage of the attack is inciting violence. When asked if she thinks Trump is trying to incite violence against Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, responded by saying, "Absolutely." Omar replied to the video by saying, "Violent rhetoric and all forms of hate speech have no place in our society, much less from our country's Commander in Chief. We are all Americans. This is endangering lives. It has to stop."

Has Trump used violent rhetoric before? Yes, he has, but the video he tweeted about Ilhan Omar does not encourage any violence toward her. It is dishonest to say it does and is an attempt to stifle real discussion. The actual people sending Omar death threats and the people honestly criticizing her are two entirely different groups.

If Democrats want to have a chance for 2020, they need to split from the radical area of their party, and that includes Ilhan Omar.
