Laura Ingraham stepped away from hosting her show for awhile and a lot of people were worried that she wasn’t going to come back. David Hogg attempted to get her fired for tweeting something about him that he didn’t like.
Florida high school massacre survivor David Hogg, who along with some of his fellow teens have turned into fierce gun-control advocates, is asking his nearly 600,000 Twitter followers to boycott advertisers of Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
The conservative commentator mocked Hogg on Twitter on Wednesday after the 17-year-old revealed in an interview on TMZ that his applications were recently rejected by four University of California campuses. Ingraham tweeted: “David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.)”
It looked a little dicey there for a while as sponsors started dumping Laura.
But, we soon learned that Fox was standing by Laura and she would be back after an Easter vacation.
She came back on Monday night and she did so in epic fashion.
From The Daily Caller:
Fox News host Laura Ingraham responded to the backlash against her comments about Parkland survivor David Hogg by defending free speech and criticizing leftists who seek to silence their political opponents.
“My friends, something alarming is taking place,” Ingraham asserted. “The free speech clause of our Constitution doesn’t just apply to speech that the elites deem acceptable. It exists to support speech that is by its nature offensive.”
“We indeed are reaching a crisis point, where cultural walls are now being erected to conscript and still free speech in America. But we cannot let this continue,” she continued. “Their efforts are Stalinist, pure and simple.”
Ingraham ended her monologue with a message to the people trying to silence her and other conservatives: “We will never relent. And we will never give in.”
“Never,” she reiterated. “And that’s the angle.”
Here’s the segment.
Gotta love it.
Clearly, Laura isn’t going to be intimidated by the unhinged left.
It’s a shame she apologized in the first place. The left never has to apologize for anything but it’s nice to see that she isn’t going to be backing down on her show.
Turns out Hogg isn’t even going to go to college. He’s going to take a year off to be a political activist.
David Hogg, the student turned anti-gun activist following the shooting deaths of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida in February, has announced he is putting off his college education to work on the 2018 midterm elections.
A little strange. So is this is career now? Yelling at conservatives and trying to get people fired? Why not just go to college and still be involved in politics?
It seems likely that we are going to have to deal with Hogg for a long time. Why? Surviving a horrible tragedy doesn’t make you an expert on anything and that’s especially true when you are a teenager. Sadly, that hasn’t stopped the liberal media from parading Hogg aroud every chance they get.
