INGRAHAM VS HOGG

BIG MOUTH GETS BAD PRESS
Laura Ingraham is a conservative provocateur who, like many of her Fox News prime time colleagues, has to gin up ever greater levels of outrage to keep her viewers awake and glued to the screen. 

QUOTE: To win in the ratings game you have to act like a dumbass scumbag. She was bested by intelligence and someone whose heart beats after the tragic time at Parkland.

He has the courage to fight and has shown more moral fortitude than that bitch.  Pardon my french but she’s not on my friends list.

David Hogg is a teenage survivor of a horrific attack on a high school who, like many young people who have achieved sudden fame, has decided that he is an oracle of wisdom.

Hogg is irritating and sanctimonious in the way young people often are. Ingraham is ghastly by design as a market brand. But Ingraham is also a grown-up who should know better.

Yes, David Hogg is turning from a youth with a good cause to a media operator who is, apparently, trying out a possible career as a political gadfly before he’s even cast his first vote. He’s put himself in the public square as a brawler who can throw and take a punch. He’s savvy and getting savvier by the minute, especially in baiting a slew of commentators into treating him as an adult, which is exactly what he wants.

In mid-December, Harvard’s early entry candidates began logging on to the application status portal to learn whether they’d been accepted to one of the world’s most prestigious universities. But for one particularly famous member of the class of 2023, entry into Harvard brought a bit more than congratulations.   

FOR DAVID HOGG, IT WAS THE LAST LAUGH...

“Thank you all for the well wishes,” Hogg tweeted Saturday morning. “I’ll be attending Harvard in the fall with a planned major in Political Science.”  Hogg is one of the survivors of the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 dead. 

After the shooting, he became a founding member of Never Again MSD, a group that advocates for stiffer gun-control laws. He helped organize the March for Our Lives for stronger gun violence prevention measures, which drew nearly 800,000 people to the nation’s capital.

But the 18-year-old’s very public stance on gun control turned him into a target himself. His home was swatted. He’s been accused of being a crisis actor. And even typical teenager ups and downs have made national news.  Hogg and Harvard didn’t immediately return messages Saturday.

In March, he told TMZ about the rejection letters he had received from four California colleges - California State University at Long Beach, UCLA, the University of California at Santa Barbara and the University of California at San Diego - even as he organized a movement that was “changing the world.”   

Mocking Hogg’s comments, Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted a story from a conservative news website that described the teen as a “Gun Rights Provocateur” — and said Hogg was whining.

“David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it,” Ingraham tweeted. “(Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.)”

Hogg, who the New York Times reported had a 4.2 GPA and 1270 SAT score, took to Twitter, where his number of followers has surpassed 900,000. He compiled a list of 12 companies that advertise on Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle” and sent a message to his followers: “Pick a number 1-12 contact the company next to that #.”

In mid-December, Harvard’s early-entry candidates began logging on to the application status portal to learn whether they’d been accepted to one of the world’s most prestigious universities. But for one particularly famous member of the class of 2023, entry into Harvard brought a bit more than congratulations.  


FOX the GOP and WHITE SUPREMACIST NEWS NETWORK
The Fox News audience is almost 100% white, according to Nielsen.  Coincidentally, the Nazi’s and the KKK were all white too.  And on the channel’s highest-rated shows, the politics of white anxiety play out practically every day, as hosts and guests warn about the impacts of immigration and minimize or mock the perspectives of people of color. The talk show segments are clearly intended to appeal to people who perceive they are losing their grip on power. 

They are what was called in the second world war the Fifth Column. In 2018, Tucker Carlson, another  5th Column FOX arsehole deviate at 8 p.m., and Ingraham, at 10 p.m., spend the most time on this subject. The host in between, Sean Hannity, concentrates more on defending Trump another scumbag  presentation by a bigoted scumbag who is also like Laura a homophobic.

"The America we know and love doesn't exist anymore," Ingraham said Wednesday night. "Massive demographic changes have been foisted on the American people, and they are changes that none of us ever voted for, and most of us don't like."   Ingraham said "this is related to both illegal and legal immigration." 

The commentary was amplified on social media by the liberal, anti-Fox watchdog group Media Matters. Many people who viewed it on social media were shocked, as her rhetoric went beyond what other conservative commentators have said in the past.   Nearly 24 hours later, Ingraham’s name was still a top trending topic on Twitter. 

Media Matters made a video asserting that Ingraham's "anti-immigrant rant" was "ripped from white supremacists." Some Democratic lawmakers also spoke out. Senator Tammy Duckworth tweeted that the “ facist" comments "shouldn't have been aired by @FoxNews."


SHE SHOULD SHUT UP AND NOT DRIBBLE
Fox News’ Laura Ingraham took some heat last February for instructing NBA superstar LeBron James to just “shut up and dribble” after he called out President Donald T-RUMP for not giving “ A f*ck about the people.

The “Ingraham Angle” host also said that James should “keep the political commentary to yourself.” Ingraham’s words are now coming back to haunt her, with the announcement that James is producing a new Showtime docu-series that looks at “the changing role of athletes in our fraught cultural and political environment, through the lens of the NBA.”

The program’s title?   “Shut Up And Dribble.”

“If being a star athlete is inherently a political experience, ‘Shut Up And Dribble’ tells that complex and dramatic story from the past to the present and from the inside out,” Showtime CEO David Nevins said in a press release.  The news, which was released after Trump used Twitter to attack both James and CNN anchor Don Lemon on Friday, excited fans on the social media platform:

Ingraham grew up in Glastonbury, Connecticut, where she was born to Anne Caroline (née Kozak) and James Frederick Ingraham III.  Her maternal grandparents were Polish immigrants, and her father was of Irish and English ancestry.   She graduated from Glastonbury High School in 1981. Ingraham earned a B.A. from Dartmouth College in 1985 and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Virginia School of Law in 1991.

In 2017, Ingraham was described by the New York Times as an “ardent nationalist”.  
She is known for her strong support for Donald Trump.She holds hawkish positions on immigration
2014 Ingraham said that allowing more immigrant workers to come to the United States would be “ scene to the American experience".
She opposed the proposed bipartisan 2013 US Senate comprehensive immigration reform plan.  Ingraham has said that her influences include Ronald Reagan, Robert Bork and Pat Buchanan. Let’s see thats a nice guy, a conservative and a pr*ck.


VIEWS ON HOMOSEXUALITY

In her senior year at Dartmouth College, Ingraham was the editor-in-chief of an unofficial conservative college newspaper, The Dartmouth Review,  (Also thought of by many known as the scumbag press)  becoming its first female editor.   Ingraham wrote several controversial articles during her tenure. Notably, she sent a reporter undercover to a campus LGBTQ meeting. 

She then published a transcript of the meeting and included the names of the attendees, describing them as “  Cheerleaders for latent campus sodomites”.   She was criticized for forcibly outing the meeting’s attendees.

At the start of the meeting, an oath of confidentiality was read whereby participants in the meeting were assured that information from the meeting would not be made public.   Ingraham claimed confidentiality did not apply, because the meeting had been advertised, and defended the outing of the gay students as a "freedom of the press issue".

Jeffrey Hart, the faculty adviser for The Dartmouth Review described Ingraham as having “ he most extreme anti-homosexual views imaginable” claiming “ he went so far as to avoid a local eatery where she feared the waiters were homosexual".   Meanwhile she was probably banging the whole football team... 

In 1997, Ingraham wrote an essay in The Washington Post in which she stated that she had changed her views on homosexuality after witnessing "the dignity, fidelity, and courage" with which her gay brother, Curtis, and his partner coped with AIDS. Ingraham has stated that she supports civil unions between same-sex partners, but believes marriage “ is between a man and a woman”.  Spoken like a true piece of Americas worst, the two sided coin, it flips from head to head when it serves its purpose.   

THE GOP OFFER
In January 2017, Ingraham was approached by Republican Party officials and asked to consider running for the United States Senate seat held by Tim Kaine, Democrat of Virginia.  While Ingraham confirmed she was considering running against Kaine, she has not mentioned the possibility since accepting an offer of her own primetime show in Fox News, The Ingraham Angle. The show premiered in October 2017.

IMMIGRATION
Ingraham holds anti-immigration views. In 2014, she denounced House Majority Leader Eric Cantor after he expressed support for the DREAM Act and a GOP bill to grant a pathway to citizenship for young immigrants.

  • At the time, Cantor faced a primary challenge from Dave Brat, which he would go on to lose.  According to The New York Times, "Few people did more than Ms. Ingraham to propel Mr. Brat, a 49-year-old economics professor who has never held elected office before, from obscurity to national conservative hero.”
  •  Ingraham said the race would go “ own as one of the most significant repudiations of establishment immigration reform that I’ve seen in my 20 years of doing politics,  and that due to the outcome of the race, “immigration reform is DOA.”
  • That same year, Ingraham harshly criticized Republican congresswoman Renee Elmers for expressing support for a comprehensive immigration bill which included a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants who were in the country at the time. In an interview with Elmers, Ingraham accused Elmers of supporting amnesty and using liberal talking points, and said her arguments were “infuriating to my listeners”.
  • In September 2017, amid reports that Trump was considering an agreement with Democrats on amnesty for approximately 800,000 DREAMers, Ingraham criticized Trump, tweeting “ hen does American working class w/out real wage increase in 15yrs and who send their kids to overcrowded public schools get amnesty?”
  •  In July 2018, Ingraham harshly criticized Republican congressman Kevin Yoder after he expressed support for a Democratic bill that rolled back Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ order that immigration judges not be allowed to grant asylum to asylum seekers fleeing domestic abuse or gang violence in their home country.  She called on the congressman to “ o stop selling out the Trump agenda."
  • In the late 1980s, Ingraham worked as a speechwriter in the Reagan administration for the Domestic Policy Advisor.
  • She also briefly served as editor of The Prospect, the magazine issued by Concerned Alumni of Princeton. 
  • After law school, in 1991, she served as a law clerk for Judge Ralph K. Winter Jr., of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, in New York and subsequently clerked for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. 
  • She then worked as an attorney at the New York-based law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. In 1995, she appeared on the cover of The New York Times Magazine in connection with a story about young conservatives.
  • In 1996, she and Jay P. Lefkowitz organized the first Dark Ages Weekend in response to Renaissance Weekend.
  • Ingraham has had three stints as a cable television host. In the late 1990s, she became a CBS commentator and hosted the MSNBC program Watch It!.  
  • Several years later, Ingraham began campaigning for another cable television show on her radio program. She finally got her wish in 2008, when Fox News Channel gave her a three-week trial run for a new show entitled Just In.  In October 2017 she became the host of a new Fox News Channel program, The Ingraham Angle.
  • Ingraham launched The Laura Ingraham Show in April 2001, which is heard on 306 stations and on XM Satellite Radio. It was originally syndicated by Westwood One, but moved to Talk Radio Network in 2004. 
  • Ingraham was also the official guest host of The O’Reilly Factor on Fox News Channel and a weekly contributor with her segment, The Ingraham Angle.
  • In 2012, Ingraham was rated as the No. 5 radio show in America, by Talkers Magazine. In November 2012, she announced her departure from Talk Radio Network, declining to renew her contract with TRN after nearly a decade of being associated with the network. She said, in jest, that she had decided to “pursue my first loves – modern dance and the xylophone".
  • She was the second major host from TRN's lineup to leave the network that year: TRN's other major program, The Savage Nation, left TRN two months earlier. Her new program, syndicated by Courtside Entertainment Group, began on January 2, 2013.
  • Along with businessman Peter Anthony, Ingraham founded and owns Ingraham Media Group, which produces the new media publication LifeZette. Ingraham serves as editor in chief. The website’s subsections are PoliZette, FaithZette, PopZette, and HealthZette.


THE FEMININE GENDER FOR SCUM BAG MUST BE DOUCHBAG

New York (CNN Business)  Fox News on Friday afternoon stood by Laura Ingraham after she defended a white supremacist and several other fringe people who have been banned or disciplined by large social media companies.

Ingraham's defense of the extremists on her prime time Fox show "The Ingraham Angle" came during a segment on Thursday about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's criticism of Facebook for not removing a video doctored to make it appear she was drunk and slurring her words.

Ingraham said calls for Facebook to remove the video were a “pretext to be able to silence voices."  Later during the segment, Ingraham displayed a graphic showing images of people she characterized as “ prominent voices censored on social media."  "Facebook now, what do they monitor? Quote, hate? That sounds good until you realize hate," Ingraham said. "And these are some of the people they've shunned."

"Its people who believe in border enforcement, people who believe in national sovereignty," Ingraham added.


PAUL NEHLEN
The graphic included Paul Nehlen, a white supremacist who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in 2016 and 2018. Nehlen, who refers to himself as "pro-white," has had his racism and anti-Semitism well documented. In April, for instance, he appeared on a podcast and admitted to wearing a shirt featuring Robert Bowers, the man accused of killing 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

"Because, I want to make a point that it will ultimately take -- it might not take a million Robert Bowers -- but it's going to take a lot of people all pushing in the same direction to do what needs to be done, and that is to rid white lands of Jews," Nehlen said on the podcast. "Because they are going to undermine our ability to thrive as a race. They are going to wipe us off the face of the earth."

Nehlen has also shared fringe conspiracy theories, including the idea that Bill and Hillary Clinton are murderers.

Nehlen, who was permanently suspended from Facebook and Twitter, is so toxic that even Gab, a platform used by members of the alt-right, banned him. In 2017, the far-right website Breitbart cut ties with Nelen after he appeared on a white nationalist podcast.    

Jonathan Greenblatt, chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League, criticized Fox News and Ingraham for the description of Nehlen.  "Paul Nehlen is not being censored because he's a conservative. He was kicked off social media for repeatedly spewing anti-Semitism & racism, and for targeting Jewish journalists," Greenblatt tweeted on Friday. "Do better, @FoxNews."

FOX LIES AGAIN
Following the backlash, Fox News released a statement saying it was “obscene to suggest" Ingraham had defended Nehlen.  "Anyone who watches Laura's show knows that she is a fierce protector of freedom of speech and the intent of the segment was to highlight the growing trend of unilateral censorship in America," the Fox News statement added.

Among the other people Ingraham included in her graphic were:

Laura Loomer, the far-right activist with a history of making Islamophobic comments who has been banned by most social media platforms;
Alex Jones, the far-right InfoWars founder who has shared a number of conspiracy theories, including the idea the Sandy Hook massacre was staged, and who has also been banned from most social media platforms; 

James Woods, the right-wing actor who was recently locked out of his Twitter account for tweeting the hashtag “#HangThemAll,” which violated the company's terms of service.


FALLOUT
Ingraham's Thursday segment has resulted in her losing at least one advertiser.   Abhi Lokesh, chief executive of photo printing company Fracture, wrote in a blog, "Last night one of our ads aired during an episode of The Ingraham Angle during which Laura Ingraham expressed alarming views that run entirely counter to the values that we hold as a company. We are taking this matter very seriously and as a result we are taking swift action. Effective immediately, we are no longer advertising on The Ingraham Angle.”   It's not the first time Ingraham has lost advertisers as a result of a controversial remark.

In April 2018, more than a dozen companies said they would no longer advertise on Ingraham’s show after she mocked Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg, who has become a vocal advocate for gun control.


MY REPLY
I guess like James woods I should have a hashtag…  “#ShootTheDouchbag”
