Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham’s Wednesday night monologue about immigrants destroying America was so racist it got the endorsement of David Duke, the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan.

During the opening to her primetime show The Ingraham Angle, Ingraham complained that “the America we know and love doesn't exist anymore. Massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people,” she said, in the form of documented and undocumented immigrants.

wow. Talk about the "kiss of death". This is like having "Thanos" endorse your population control arguments. Of course, when you argue that "massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people", it's to be expected. Essentially, what she's saying is classic KKK rhetoric.

I read what SE Cupp wrote this morning:

"To many, that sounded racist. That's because it is...This is why he won. Because there are untold numbers of people across the country -- from Virginia to California, as Ingraham put it -- who believe their problems are the fault of people who don't look like them. Whether they're right or wrong is beside the point. It's a fear and loathing that many in politics -- from both parties at one time or another -- have happily fomented and stoked to win votes. It's deep and it's real.

Now, the President of the United States is just the latest prophet of this religion, and unsurprisingly, he has plenty of devout followers.

Yeah, I saw this...just wow and shaking my head.

Also really weird in light of fact that she has 2 adopted kids. One from Guatemala, another from Russia


Dear Laura Ingraham: I served on active duty to defend your right to make racist statements.

America is not a race or demographic. It's a beautiful & bold idea, based on life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness. You @IngrahamAngle are no more American than I am or others are.

S.E. Cupp is a straight shooter.

Is it possible to get fired by Faux Newz for making racist statements on air?

Or, is it required that their on air personalities vomit hate speech?

As she spoke about the proportion of people in federal prisons who are undocumented, a frustrated Ingraham offered her own solution.

“Why don’t we ship them out of this country, why are we paying for these horrific individuals? They do their time, get out of the country, never coming back. Never coming back. You come back, you’ll be shot,” she said in 2015.

She is and incidentally is Meghan McCains best friend. Both are upset at FOX lately.
Ingraham could learn a thing or two from S.E. Cupp. She used to do some blistering monologues when she was a co-host on MSNBC "The Cycle". The kind your average liberal would love to hate. When we talk about putting forward conservative women she's at the top of my list. Ingraham is at the bottom. Fox News should hire the former.
