According to Fox News host Laura Ingraham, the 2020 election is a battle between socialists and globalists who are engaged in a “power grab,” and President Donald Trump has to be reelected in order to preserve “our booming economy, our history, and our heritage, the good and bad of it.”
Can you say “white nationalism”? It sure sounds like that’s what Ingraham is advocating.
The Fox News host’s remarks came during her opening monologue, where she blasted the Democratic Party for embracing what she characterized as the failed, out-of-date economic and immigration policies of Western Europe.
“The problem for the Democrats is, whichever direction they take now, the policies underneath it all, they don’t work,” she claimed. “Europe is running away from socialism. America will run toward it? Okay, then what? Hope for better employment numbers on a higher GDP? Unlikely.”
But that wasn’t all Ingraham had to say. She also noted that far right parties were winning elections in Europe and insisted that was a good thing:
“And by the way, the new populist party in Spain just doubled its numbers in parliament over the weekend there.
“Nations from Sweden to Greece are rebelling big time against the wave of Middle Eastern refugees that genius [German Chancellor] Angela Merkel punished the E.U. with four years ago.”
What Ingraham failed to mention, however, is that the far right Vox party in Spain claims to be the heir to the policies of former fascist dictator Francisco Franco. The Vox party also traffics in hateful rhetoric about immigrants and has also attacked laws which protect women in Spain from domestic abuse.
Ingraham ended her diatribe of support for extremism with this flurry of vitriol:
“So leave it to America’s Democrats to side with the parties losing clout in Europe. The choice we have next election is between preserving our booming economy, our history, and our heritage, the good and bad of it. And reversing, or reversing and repudiating all of that. On this Veterans Day, we honor all of those who served our armed forces over the years. And I don’t think they sacrificed so that the rest of us could fritter it all away on a socialist or a globalist power grab that delivers nothing but pain and misery.”
The 2020 election may be the most important in a century. It’s a clear choice between hatred and hope.
