Citation From the May 26, 2020, edition of Fox News' The Ingraham Angle:

KARL MANKE: You know I wrote a story, I'm an author also, I wrote a book called "Age of Shame" and in that story, it takes place in the Warsaw Ghetto in the 1940s. Now, at that particular time, the Jewish people were packed into one square mile about 800,000 of them, in one square mile. Now the younger people knew what was going on. They knew where these -- you know, that the -- what the Nazis were up to at that time. The older people feared that if the younger people wouldn't behave themselves, the -- that the government, the German government would punish them. So, they would turn in their younger people. And willingly, listened and watched the nice movies that told him all that they were going to have a wonderful day and a wonderful time. 

LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): So Karl, Karl, I don't mean to interrupt, we are running tight on time, and I love that story. But Karl, you're -- you're talking about the encouraging snitching on your fellow citizens.

MANKE: Yes, that is exactly right.

INGRAHAM: And she didn't wear a mask, and he opened up too early and you cut the hair of a protester, how dare you, so -- I've never seen that, ever, in the United States of America, but we have elected officials encouraging that type of neighbor spying upon neighbor to tell the authorities. I don't think that washes well in the United States of America. I don't think it works.
