Fox’s Laura Ingraham hosted Bryan “Hotep Jesus” Sharpe, an anti-Semitic extremist who has appeared on white nationalist media platforms, after he mocked Starbucks’ decision to close its stores for racial bias training.
Previously Sharpe claimed “I’d rather align with a racist white than a cry baby black,” appeared on white nationalist radio station Red Ice TV, and justified Heather Heyer’s death at the hands of a white nationalist, writing “if there was no anti-protest there would have been no clash. Deandre Harris wouldn’t be hurt and Heather Heyer wouldn’t have been murdered. Fact!” From the April 18 edition of Fox News’ The Ingraham Angle:
LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): In the "Angle," I told you about someone who wanted to see just how far Starbucks liberal guilt would go. His video has gone completely viral, so we asked comedian-provocateur Bryan Sharpe to join us this evening, and there he is. Hey Bryan, how are you?
BRYAN SHARPE: Hey, Laura. How are you?
INGRAHAM: You totally fooled me, okay? Because I played this on my radio show this morning, my producers and I were screaming, we were like, “This sounds” -- if I didn't know better, it sounds like -- you sound like Chris Rock. You -- it’s so funny, and that poor girl in Starbucks is ready to turn over the keys to the shop to you, she was so worried.
