Fox News propagandist Laura Ingraham lobbed a slew of racist remarks about immigrants during Thursday’s edition of The Ingraham Angle that was almost identical to the defamatory tropes which Donald Trump employed when he descended his gilded escalator at the launch of his presidential campaign in 2015.
First, Ingraham peddled the thoroughly debunked claim that migrants from Central America, South America, and Afghanistan are riddled with disease and hastening the spread of COVID-19 in the United States.
“Every person now demanding that we take every Afghan because we promised them forgets that America’s first promise is to her own citizens – their safety, their security, and their freedom. Yet our border towns are being overrun by released migrants because [President Joe] Biden refuses to do the right thing on the border. They know that COVID-infected migrants will infect American citizens and schoolchildren this fall,” Ingraham said, knowing full well that it is largely members of her television audience that are refusing to get vaccinated and allowing the coronavirus to once again rip through the American population.
“They know crime is going to spike due to the million-plus migrants Biden’s already released into the country. And they don’t care. In fact, their goal right now is to speed up the admission of these migrants into the United States. Just yesterday, the administration announced new rules to empower bureaucrats who will now unilaterally decide whether an illegal alien shows up at our border, should be allowed entry into the United States,” Ingraham continued. “These open borders fanatics cannot be trusted to safeguard our sovereignty and enforce our laws. It’s been obvious for a long time that, when you really think about it, the elites have pretty much had it with Americans. They like China a lot better in many ways.”
She then – as she so often does – connected a series of dots that only exist in her head.
“Remember, regular Americans, well they elected Trump. They love their Second Amendment still, and they’re far too religious, and at their core, they come from a kind of evil and racist background. Thus, the more folks from other countries who can come here, the better. Even if we can’t really vet them, even if they become wards of the state, even if they bring in more crime, more violence, their extended family comes in, third cousins twice removed,” said Ingraham. “To the left, to the open borders establishment, they’re better than the old normal. The next three years will see blunder after blunder from Biden as his team drips from one crisis to the next.”
Paddling from blunder to blunder and crisis to crisis perfectly depicts Trump’s presidency, not Biden’s.
