Laura Ingraham's history of promoting hate and white supremacy

Fox News host Laura Ingraham is under fire again, this time for defending white supremacist Paul Nehlen. Ingraham has repeatedly pushed hate and white supremacy on her radio show, her podcast, and her Fox News show.

Ingraham began to lose advertisers after attacking Parkland survivors in 2016. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. She has:

  • promoted the white supremacist “replacement” conspiracy theory cited by the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter;

  • spread the evidence-free nativist conspiracy theory that migrants were bringing diseases into the United States;

  • compared Planned Parenthood to Hitler;

  • defended the racism of Rep. Steve King (R-IA) and praised King as “one of my heroes on the issue of immigration”;

  • told Democrats to focus on white voters;

  • accused Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) of using “minority privilege” to criticize Fox hosts like herself;

  • complained that America is plagued by “white-aphobia”;

  • attacked Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor's heritage as un-American, even though Sotomayor and her family are from Puerto Rico;

  • likened Confederate statues to priceless antiques and protesters to ISIS;

  • used the song “Shock the Monkey” for a segment discussing Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' racist “monkey” remark about Democratic candidate Andrew Gillum;

  • declared that Martin Luther King Jr. would support President Donald Trump;

  • suggested that the cast of Hamilton is guilty of cultural appropriation for playing white people;

  • called for the revival of “Operation Wetback” to mass deport immigrants;

  • used the sound of a gun shot to cut off a sound bite of civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington;

  • mocked the accent of Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) as not sounding “like Minnesota”;

  • bemoaned that “transgenderism” is no longer “called a mental condition”;

  • and much, much more.
