Laura Ingraham has returned to Fox News on “The Ingraham Angle” and she took the liberal-inspired boycotts head on that have successfully chased off as many as 20 of her advertisers. This is her first appearance since engaging with gun-control activist and student David Hogg over his recent college rejections.
After Ingraham tweeted about Hogg whining over colleges rejecting him, he started a boycott against her that is still on-going. Media personalities such as Brian Stelter are gloating over the event, but some such as Bill Maher are decrying it as stifling free speech.
BREAKING: @IngrahamAngle's return to Fox News tonight does not end her bad news: @Allstate has dropped her show, telling employees “Laura Ingraham’s comments about David Hogg were inconsistent with our values." They are the 20th sponsor to stop their ads. https://t.co/LTTIF2oUSE

Ingraham apologized for the tweet on the college rejections. Hogg would not accept it and said that Ingraham should “stand down” in response to her apology. He also wanted a widespread apology to himself and other student protesters from Ingraham. Laura did not apologize in her return after her pre-planned vacation. Instead, she tackled the “Stalinist” actions of the left who appear to want nothing more than to squelch free speech. “The left’s propaganda shaped a new generation of young adults,” Ingraham said. She also pointed out that “safe spaces” and terms like “white privilege” have been used to “intimidate those who disagree” with the left.
The left speaks of inclusivity frequently, but their actions are the opposite of what they proclaim. Ingraham said that they “don’t invite more voices to enter public discussion.” “Generations later, the chilling effect on free speech and the workplace in the media, and in society at large is palpable,” Ingraham explained, noting that circumstances may even be getting worse. Ingraham broached the subject of how expressing your opinion these days can get you fired. “Or, yes, you can get boycotted,” she added, taking a job at the boycott movement against her show.
Ingraham went on to drive her point home by bringing up a 2016 incident in which Trump supporters were assaulted in California. “This is the intolerant left in action,” Ingraham declared. “Whether it’s striking voices from social media, or driving certain viewpoints from the airwaves. Beating people up, organizing boycotts for perceived unforgivable offenses, or preventing speakers from being heard on a college campus, it’s all coming from the same place: a desperate desire to stop debate by branding your opponent unacceptable and driving him or her from the public square.”
Ingraham Also addressed recent high-profile cases where conservatives have essentially been silenced, such as Diamond and Silk or a conservative writer that was fired at The Atlantic for his political views. “We indeed are reaching a crisis point. Where cultural walls have now being erected to conscript and steal free speech in America,” she continued.
“Their efforts are Stalinist, pure and simple,” she later added. “Their objective is a total transformation of American society, not through rational discourse and open debate, but through personal demonization and silencing.” Which is true and accurate. Ingraham went on to issue a dire warning for even those who don’t consider themselves conservatives. “True liberals and conservatives should defend the free speech anywhere and everywhere because the tables can turn quickly,” Ingraham said. “Today it’s conservatives being targeted. Tomorrow it could be left of center voices as well.” Just ask Bill Maher. He lost a job once because of a boycott and he believes they are un-American and unconstitutional.
“We will never relent. And we will never give in,” Ingraham declared. She also used a book from Dinesh D’Souza to explain how the once open-minded, so-called tolerant ways of the youth’s liberal left have all but vanished. According to Laura, college campuses have turned from bastions that “championed free speech” to institutions that “stifle” it. “And the goal posts by the way are forever moving,” she warned. “Every day more issues are taken off the table all together and may no longer be debated at all.”
She also stated that George Soros and Media Matters were behind the boycotts. It worked on O’Reilly and others and they are still using it as a weapon.
Ingraham echoed the sentiments of Winston Churchill: “What the speech czars don’t seem to appreciate is that there are as many if not more of us than there are of them. And we will never relent. And we will never give in. Never.”
The boycott continues: When Laura Ingraham returns to her show on Monday night, it'll have noticeably fewer ads than other Fox talk shows. Here's my latest story… https://t.co/BQePWyhnoB

As a member of the media the fact you applaud this is reprehensible. The amazing thing is you haven’t the slightest sense of why this is so wrong. But then again ideologically stunted partisan hacks like you have no long range thought process.

But you gloat over boycotts against your competitors.

We don't need to read or watch your "work" because you're always on twitter telling us how amazingly awesome you are. Sparky you talk about yourself more than a 16 year old cheerleader running for homecoming queen.
