After spending part of her Fox News show earlier this week warning about how America is going to hell because of “massive demographic changes”—an obvious white supremacist dog whistle—Laura Ingraham opened up her Thursday night show with an explanation about why her racist monologue actually wasn’t racist.
“A message to those who are distorting my views, including all white nationalists, and especially one racist freak whose name I will not even mention,” she said. (The last line is presumably a reference to former KKK leader David Duke, who enthusiastically endorsed her monologue.) “You do not have my support. You don’t represent my views, and you are antithetical to the beliefs I hold dear.” Oddly enough, arguing that immigration has made America unrecognizable could give a reasonable person the impression that she actually finds those scumbags quite palatable!
And despite what some may be contending, I made explicitly clear that my commentary had nothing to do with race or ethnicity, but rather a shared goal of keeping America safe, and her citizens safe and prosperous.
Furthermore, as I have said repeatedly on the show, merit-based immigration does wonders for our country’s economy, our way of life, and how we define our country.
See, not racist at all!!
