Surprise, surprise! Laura Ingraham, one of the most racist pundits to ever fester on television or radio, welcomes a confirmed hate group to attack the organization that tracks hate groups. Only on Fox News and right-wing hate radio.
The following is from Media Matters dot org On the March 8 edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor, Dane attempted to discredit the SPLC as a "far-left political attack machine" and compared the SPLC's activism to McCarthyism. Before the segment was over, Dane denied the very existence of hate groups, claiming that while hate crimes are real, "a hate group is a concoction, an invention of the politically-left Southern Poverty Law Center." Watch:
FAIR has a history of holding rallies where immigrants are smeared as "disease-ridden" criminals. One FAIR event featured a guest who had threatened, "We should hang you and send your body back to where you came from." FAIR also has close ties to the White Nationalist Council of Conservative Citizens and has received over $1 million in funding from a white supremacist group. According to the SPLC, FAIR is "the most important organization" in a network of 13 hate groups founded by John Tanton, who once warned of a coming "Latin onslaught."
Last night while hosting the O’reilly Factor, confirmed racist Laura Ingraham (see the “Laura The Racist” section) featured a “story” about two African American brothers who may have murdered a 12-year old white girl for her bike parts. Ingraham’s underlying argument is that the media is biased against whites. The media covers for the menancing black men who victimize innocent white children. Ingraham even went so far as to post a Willie Horton style photo of the two brothers on her Twitter page.
As I have said on my radio show, Fox News is officially a white rights network, so we can expect this type of racial nonsense, especially from someone like Laura Ingraham. However, what is even more egregious is the fact that Ingraham is using a deceased 12-year old girl to make a political point about the media. The story wasn’t about the murdered young girl. It wasn’t about the case itself; instead it was a two-fold attack: The media and blacks in America.
Laura Ingraham in my opinion is a racist. Ingraham has a history of racism when it comes to Al Sharpton, among many other people. For example, in 2008, Laura Ingraham said she hoped the White House had nailed down the valuables upon Sharpton’s visit to the White House.
Today, Ingraham tweeted this: Wow…Al Sharpton currently beating me thru a competing TSA line. Of course, her defenders will say there is nothing racist about this at all- just like they said of the pictures comparing Michelle Obama to an alien, or the tweet where Ingraham called some random African American lady Michelle Obama (scroll the site for details)-but the underlying assumption here is that Reverand Sharpton is a criminal and should be held up longer, while Ingraham, a white lady, should breeze right through.
Racists like Ingraham need to be exposed and marginalized. They are the modern-day plantation owners featured in the new Django Unchained movie.
