Just for openers, what was "racist" about her comments?

Her “clarification” makes no sense since she initially included “legal” immigration in her rant. And data show that immigrants, both legal and illegal, commit much less crime than American-born people. So this isn’t about keeping America safe. This is about keeping America white.


===========================================================

Your post and the headline for your thread are the ones does not make sense.

Did you ever think why illegals commit less crime, if that is true? Clue..when you are illegal you would be so afraid of being caught you would not break laws or go to a sanctuary city.

Gee, I miss posters that understand what is going on.


Two logic problems here:

 

1] Who cares why they commit less crime? They do. So Ingraham’s tirade about keeping America safe from immigrants is just completely misguided.

2] Perhaps illegal immigrants commit less crime because they fear getting caught. But why then, do legal immigrants commit even less crime?

News host Laura Ingraham defended her controversial anti-immigrant comments on Thursday and disavowed the white nationalists and “one racist freak” who endorsed those remarks.

Although Ingraham didn’t name the individual, she was likely referring to former KKK leader David Duke, who tweeted (and then deleted) praise for her comments in which she lamented the “massive demographic changes” caused by immigration and said “in some parts of the country, it does seem like the America that we know and love doesn’t exist anymore.”

Ingraham said:

“I want to start tonight by addressing my commentary at the top of last night’s show. A message to those who are distorting my views, including all white nationalists and especially one racist freak whose name I will not even mention. You do not have my support. You don’t represent my views and you are antithetical to the beliefs I hold dear.”

Then, Ingraham defended her Wednesday night monologue in which she complained of “changes that none of us ever voted for, and most of us don’t like” and blamed “both illegal and, in some cases, legal immigration.”

On Thursday, Ingraham said those comments “had nothing to do with race or ethnicity, but rather a shared goal of keeping America safe and her citizens safe and prosperous.” She also said merit-based immigration “does wonders for our country’s economy, our way of life and how we define our country.”

Ingraham clarified:

“I want to make it really clear that my concern will continue to remain with the families who have suffered the tragic results of illegal immigration, the children put in dangerous and unfair situations at the border and all those border agents around the country who work to keep our country safe.”

Ingraham’s racist rant, supported by scum like Duke and other racists around the country, should be a huge red flag with regard to the fecal matter that is Foxnews, yet trump’s base keeps quoting the slime the entertainment segment of this garbage outfit puts forth.

Scum begets scum, begets scum—this nation is drowning in the toxicity of trump and his abhorrent enablers.

 

Gee, I miss having a real president!

I also wonder what her adopted kids think, a daughter from Guatemala and two sons from Russia. Those darn “massive demographic changes” caused by immigration.
