It seems that Laura Ingraham hates there to be unity any time a Democrat is in office. As Media Matters noted, while this week Ingraham urged Republicans and conservatives to reject Obama’s call to unity, Ingraham in the past has attacked progressives for eroding unity under President Bush.
Ingraham: “Ivory Tower Reds” Are “Undermining America And Eroding Our National Unity.” From Ingraham’s 2003 book, Shut Up And Sing:
Coast to coast, our students’ curricula are designed and dictated by the K-12 edu-elite. In years to come, those children will grow up and attend college, their heads filled with all sorts of anti-American, politically correct nonsense. At college, their prejudices will be confirmed, encouraged, by the Ivory Tower Reds. This is a surefire way of undermining America and eroding our national unity. [Shut Up And Sing, Page 258-259]
Ingraham: Progressive Elites Try To “Ensure That Our Sense Of Unity And Loyalty To America Fade Away.” In Shut Up And Sing, Ingraham quotes from a Japanese American leader pledging loyalty to the United States during World War II. She then writes:
Can you imagine a similar statement being issued nowadays when the educrats [sic] teach that America represents nothing more than a shameful tale of exploitation, hatred, oppression, and imperialism perpetrated by a ruling class of Dead White European Males? Dream on. The elites tell immigrants to resist assimilation to ensure that our sense of unity and loyalty to America fade away. [Shut Up And Sing, Page 58-59]
Anti-war protestors were subverting America according to Ingraham: Ingraham: Iraq War Protesters Wanted To “Subvert America.” From Shut Up and Sing:
We faced exactly this scenario in the lead-up to the war in Iraq. The “antiwar” elites backed a dictator over our president. They trusted Kofi Annan over George W. Bush. They said their concern was for the lives of innocents, “the children,” etc., but they were willing to prolong the war, which kept Saddam’s torture regime in power longer, devastating the very population the peace pushers say they care so much about. To them, the Iraqi people were only pawns in their quest to subvert America. They weren’t antiwar protestors — they were protesters against freeing Iraqis from their bondage. [Shut Up And Sing, Page 163]
