Whenever you are in the need for someone to provide you a sugar-coated version of white nationalism, Laura Ingraham is your woman. On a daily basis, the conservative radio host and anti-immigration activist monotonically drones on about the need to eliminate all of the non-white, non-Christian, non-English speaking foreign hordes from invading the United States. During a typical broadcast, you can hear her railing against Muslims, Hispanics, President Obama and anything else that doesn’t represent her specific Anglo-centric view of what America should look like.
During Monday morning’s broadcast of The Laura Ingraham Show, a caller who described himself as a first-generation American from Colombia expressed his feelings on diversity when it comes to immigration. In his mind, despite being from South America himself, he would like for the United States to adopt an “anti-diversity position” regarding who should be allowed to migrate to the country. The man, calling himself Alberto, also said that he believes the United States will be like Mexico or Africa in 40-50 years, and when he moved here, he wanted to be somewhere where most of the people were white.
Ingraham told ‘Alberto’ that she agreed with his point of view completely and couldn’t add anything else to it because it was “great.” She then used that to give her own little rant about “shared values” and the War on Christmas, which she blames on atheists, the ACLU and Muslims.
From the show’s transcript, courtesy of Media Matters:
“Well stated, Alberto. We are a country of — we’re supposed to have some shared values. It doesn’t mean we have to agree on everything, but shared values. It shouldn’t be a question that you can say Merry Christmas at school or even sing “Silent Night” in a Christmas pageant or even do the Pledge of Allegiance. You know one high school in New York, now they’re getting rid of the Pledge of Allegiance and any mention of Christmas at all in the high school? At all. Now why do you think that’s happening? Number one, the atheists and the ACLU, and number two, the Muslims. They don’t like it. It’s not the Hispanics who are saying they don’t want “Merry Christmas.’ I’ll take anything. I’ll take “Feliz Navidad,” I’ll take “Merry Christmas,” I’ll do it from the Catholic, the Evangelical perspective. Whatever. But Christmas is an important time of year for this country. And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, then you can celebrate something else, that’s fine. But don’t try to take our Christmas away. Don’t try to rain all over our Christmas.”
This has been another episode of Laura Ingraham’s Making White Supremacy Palatable For The Masses.
