Fox Host Tomi Lahren: We Need Guns To Shoot Immigrants

Fox Host Tomi Lahren: We Need Guns To Shoot Immigrants September 13, 2019

Tomi Lahren dreams of killing immigrants: Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren says that “people that are for the Second Amendment” need guns to shoot immigrants coming across the Southern border. 

Lahren, appearing on the Fox Business show Varney and Company, told host Stuart Varney that “we are going to be armed and ready” to shoot and kill immigrants if Democrats “open our borders.”

The following is a transcript of the incendiary conversation via Media Matters

TOMI LAHREN: (FOX NATION HOST) And you can’t depend on the government to protect you at all times. That’s what so many Americans forget, is they put their safety and security in the hands of the government. The government is going to fail you.

STUART VARNEY (HOST): But the government — what I like about America is that we’re the only country in the world where armed citizens are allowed — just in case the government gets out of line. That makes America unique. It’s one of the things that really appeals to me about America. And you never hear about that.

LAHREN: Well, that’s what Second Amendment activists, and people that are for the Second Amendment, Second Amendment rights, remind people over and over and over again. This is your right, your right to protect and defend yourself and your family. And all the things the Democrats want to put in place — my goodness, if they want to open our borders, you better be sure the people in Texas, the people in South Dakota, the people in the middle of this country, we are going to be armed and ready, because we have to have a means to defend ourselves from — who knows who’s coming in? That’s the thing, we don’t know, and we have to be able to protect ourselves.

After facing strong condemnation for her threatening remarks, Lahren went to Twitter in a pathetic attempt at damage control, claiming that she wasn’t really advocating for violence:

Not what I meant & I apologize for the way it came out. I simply mean without a secure border we don’t know who is coming into our nation & those who wish to do us harm will exploit it. I’m NOT advocating for violence against any person, regardless of race or immigration status.

Bottom line: Fox host Tomi Lahren claims that people need guns to shoot immigrants coming across the Southern border.
