Fox News host Laura Ingraham mentioned Tuesday she was sickened that President Joe Biden had known as out racism in America. (Watch the clip beneath.)
In a section titled “When Everything Is Racist!” on “The Ingraham Angle,” she confirmed a clip of Biden speaking about bigotry.
“We’ve taken steps to acknowledge and address systemic racism and the scourge of white supremacy in our own country,” Biden mentioned earlier this month, including that eliminating prejudice needed to be the enterprise of the whole authorities.
It appeared like a superbly affordable factor to say ― however to not the right-wing host.
“It sickens me to hear anyone ― especially our president ― accusing America of systemic racism,” Ingraham mentioned. “After all, why do millions of people want to come here from all across the globe if Americans are just a bunch of racists? Are the people who wanna come here all stupid?”
Ingraham tried to recount the historical past of the time period “systemic racism” and resorted to fearmongering to her conservative viewers.
“Branding people, places and things as racist has become basically a favorite pastime” of the left, she mentioned. “Ultimately, they believe it gives them more power to fundamentally transform America, not to speak of more opportunities to shake down corporate America.”
Ingraham has continuously given controversial takes on points round racism earlier than. Last summer time, she caught flak for defending quarterback Drew Brees, who had urged that kneeling in the course of the nationwide anthem was disrespectful. Critics mentioned she was making use of a double commonplace since earlier she had condemned LeBron James and Kevin Durant for criticizing President Donald Trump and had echoed the dismissive “shut up and dribble” chorus that athletes shouldn’t touch upon politics.
