Laura Ingraham heated up her offensive against progressives, who continue to smear and socially shun Trump supporters and the president himself.
The Fox News host calls them the “leftist purge patrol.” Ingraham recently made a similar attack on liberals who play the race card only to smear President Donald Trump and his supporters.
She specifically mentioned the example of Stephen Ross, the Miami Dolphins owner, who has been targeted with boycotts after he planned to host a fundraiser for Donald Trump at his home in the Hamptons of New York. “Stephen Ross is being ejected from the league social justice committee,” Ingraham explains. The leftist reaction to Ross’s association with Trump is unhinged and hysterical.
These attacks on conservatives are nothing new, the left has been acting like bigoted and ignorant stooges since long before Donald Trump announced that he was running for the Republican presidential nomination in 2015.
The President has just given the left’s efforts and attacks more intensity. “The blacklist thing and intimidation and public shunning is part of a pattern that’s intensified since the election of Trump,” Laura Ingraham continued.
She mentioned several high-level Democratic officials and activists encouraging liberals to shun and even threaten violence against Trump supporters. There have been numerous incidents of Trump and ex-Trump officials and conservative activists who have been threatened and excluded from establishments for their support for the President.
A few notable examples are former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Ingraham’s fellow host at Fox News, Tucker Carlson, and Senator Mitch McConnell. Ingraham mentioned several Democratic officials such as California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, who told liberal supporters to “push back” on Trump administration officials whenever they see them in public.
“If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, in a gasoline station…you tell them they’re not welcome,” Waters ordered. She said it just a few days after Sarah Sanders was asked to leave the Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, because of her job as Press Secretary in the Trump White House.

Ingraham also mentioned a protest outside of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s home just recently, in which one protester said on camera, “Stab that [expletive] in the heart.”
Ingraham pulled no punches in calling out progressives for their hypocrisy. “The same people who blame Trump’s rhetoric for the recent El Paso shooting use as he [Joaquin Castro, D-TX] does, the most vicious, toxic language to smear their political adversaries… Forget real debate, just smear them. It’s all with the goal of making them social and cultural outcasts.”
