Laura Ingraham accused of defending anti-Semitic white supremacist

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham is facing some very disturbing and completely inaccurate allegations, causing some to call on Fox News to fire her from the network.

While discussing media censorship with Candace Owens, Ingraham displayed a graphic with “Prominent Voices” being censored by Facebook. The graphic listed white supremacist Paul Nehlen as one of several controversial figures who had been censored or banned by Facebook, which now has liberals accusing her of “promoting” or “defending” Nehlen.

The Segment

All of this outrage is over a graphic that was put on up on Ingraham’s show.

Not once during the segment, or at any time in her career as far as we know, has Ingraham voiced any type of support whatsoever for Paul Nehlen. The segment was about freedom of speech, and nothing more.

While speaking to Candace Owens, who has been under intense scrutiny herself, Ingraham showed the graphic with a list of several other prominent individuals that have faced censorship on social media. Among those pictured was Paul Nehlen.

Nehlen is a well-known white supremacist who ran for office in Wisconsin on the Republican ticket. Needless to say, he did not win.

Now, while we may not like what Nehlen has to say, he is, per the Constitution, entitled to say it. You can actually defend someone’s freedom of speech without defending what they are actually saying.

The Outrage

Liberals slammed Fox News on social media over the graphic and implied she was actually supporting the message he was sending out, which is not the case.

“It is obscene to suggest that Laura Ingraham was defending Paul Nehlen’s despicable actions especially when some of the names on the graphic were pulled from an Associated Press report on best known political extremists banned from Facebook,” Fox News said in a statement. “Anyone who watches Laura’s show knows that she is a fierce protector of the freedom of speech and the intent of the segment was to highlight the growing trend of unilateral censorship in America.”

In addition to the usual talking heads among liberals throwing shade in Ingraham, at least one sponsor is canceling advertising over the segment.

Fracture, which is a photo printing company, announced it would no longer be advertising during her show because of her “alarming views that run entirely counter to the values that we hold as a company.”

So, apparently, Fracture is against your constitutional rights, something to consider before ever using its services again.
