Laura Ingraham Condemned For Segment on U.S. ‘Demographic Changes’: It’s the ‘Swan Song of White Nationalism’

Fox News Laura Ingraham used her Wednesday night show to dabble in some hardcore white nationalist talking points, decrying “demographic changes” that have led to “the America that we know and love” ceasing to exist.

“In some parts of the country, it does seem like the America that we know and love doesn’t exist anymore,” Ingraham said during a lengthy tirade against “the left’s effort to remake America.”

“Massive demographic changes have been foisted upon the American people, and they are changes that none of us ever voted for, and most of us don’t like. From Virginia to California, we see stark examples of how radically, in some ways, the country has changed.”

“Now, much of this is related to both illegal, and in some cases legal immigration that, of course, progressives love,” she added.

At the end of her monologue, Ingraham said, “This is a national emergency and he must demand that Congress act now.”

And despite bemoaning “demographic changes,” she went on to claim her comments were not about race: “There is something slipping away in this country and it’s not about race or ethnicity. It’s what was once a common understanding by both parties that American citizenship is a privilege, and one that at a minimum requires respect for the rule of law and loyalty to our constitution.”

Nonetheless, Ingraham was quickly and brutally condemned on Twitter, with countless pundits, journalists, and even U.S. congressmen blasting her.
