Laura Ingraham

Postby broman » Thu Aug 09, 2018 3:16 pm

Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday lamented that the “American we know and love doesn’t exist anymore” because of demographic changes in the country that she blamed on illegal and legal immigration.

Ingraham was reacting to comments from Democratic House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who described in a recent podcast interview the way the country has changed over the past few decades, including the decline of the upper-middle class.

In parts of the country it does seem like the America we know and love doesn’t exist anymore,” Ingraham continued. “Massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people. And they’re changes that none of us ever voted for and most of us don’t like. “Now much of this is related to both illegal and, in some cases, legal immigration that of course progressives love..

"This is a national emergency, and he must demand that Congress act now. There is something slipping away in this country, and it's not about race or ethnicity. It's what was once a common understanding by both parties that American citizenship is a privilege, and one that at a minimum requires respect for the rule of law and loyalty to our constitution.”

The public reactions range from straight up racism to simply stating facts. My two cents, its been said before by various groups and individual and the all start and end in the same place.

I give her credit for being open about her xenophobia.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) had the best response.

She's skipping the dog whistle and going straight to the bullhorn to push all the White fright buttons.

Not surprisingly, David Duke came out with a public statement supporting Ingraham's segment.

So, I guess the White majority should be all giddy and euphoric about becoming just another minority in the country in which they have always been the overwhelming majority?

It's not really all that difficult to understand, now is it?
Well, obviously we have giant butterflies in CA. They's climbin' in your windows, They's snatchin' your people up, tryin' to steal 'em. So y'all need to hide your kids, hide your stars, and hide your coaches cause they're grabin' everybody out here.

Why would they be worried? Unless they fear being treated as they have treated others.

I have no problem with my skin being just another color. I'm already a minority in the town in which I live. It isn't so bad.

I refer to my street as the UN. There is just about every ethnicity represented.

Here's a paragraph from Victor Davis Hanson, in a 2013 article published in The National Review, entitled "Obama: Transforming America."

Under Obama, illegal immigration has become a political if not a racially charged issue. Supporters of blanket amnesty saw an evolving demographic process of fundamentally transforming the electorate of the American Southwest, resonating with Obama’s own unfortunate lead, as in his advice to Latinos to “punish our enemies.” Perhaps this vision was best summarized by ACORN’s former CEO, Bertha Lewis. She recently urged African-Americans to support increased immigration on the following rationale: “We got some Latino cousins, we got some Asian cousins, we got some Native-American cousins, we got all kind of cousins. . . . Cousins need to get together, because if we’re going to be [part of the non-white] majority, it makes sense for black people in this country to get down with immigration reform. . . . Everyone, even all white folks in this country, acknowledge that in a minute, [the] United States of America will be a new majority, will be majority minority, a brand-new thing. . . . For the first time ever in history, African-Americans outvoted white Americans. Pooh. That’s the fear of the white man. That could change everything. That’s why [immigration] should matter to us.”


That is the true racism about which, Ingraham says, whites are upset.

Note to JQP: Here's your opening to call me a racist, xenophobe, that you can add to calling me a liar and a cheat last night.

And the point being what? As I have pointed out. We have accepted numerous groups on a non-quota basis. Many of them fleeing circumstance far less worse than what is not being seen in those asking for asylum now. Yet this current group is considered criminal.

Hanson sounds like just another entitled white person who fears being treated in the same way white people have treated minorities since the settlers landed at Jamestown.

Racism implies power. Minorities wield that type of control in much fewer places than the other way around.

No it doesn't. You can be powerless and still have racist attitudes.

Bull spit. It has always been a racially charged issue. VDH saw an opening to blame it on a Black man.

He's been whining for years about the loss of White supremacy in the United States.

Given her numerous statements in the past. No one is confused by what she meant.

Which has nothing to do with Ingraham's remarks. Her backpedaling is of Olympic caliber.
