Fox host Laura Ingraham shares neo-Nazi tweet
08 Jan 2018 at 10:48 ET
In the tweet Ingraham, who has nearly two million Twitter followers, shared a video from the account of Mark Collett apparently showing rubbish left on the streets of a city and people sleeping rough.
“How about a romantic walk through Paris? This is what third world immigration does to Europe”, the tweet by Collett read. Ingraham, who hosts a show on Fox’s 10 p.m. slot, shared Collett’s tweet …
The Ingraham tweet was first flagged by liberal media watchdog Media Matters.
Collett is the former chairman of the youth division of the British National Party, a British ultranationalist political group. He was eventually dismissed from the party after making death threats to its then leader.
A spokesman for U.K. charity Hope not Hate, which campaigns to counter racism, described Collett as a “Jew-hating Hitler admirer.” The spokesman told Newsweek, “He’s on the extreme end of the far right in Britain and no-one in their right mind should, even out of ignorance, share his stuff on social media.
President Donald Trump in November retweeted videos posted on the social network by British ultranationalist activist Jayda Fransen, which allegedly showed Muslims committing crimes. At least one of the videos did not show what Fransen claimed it did. Trump’s tweets were condemned by British Prime Minister Theresa May, whom Trump then attacked for rebuking him.
In September, Fox News host Tucker Carlson was criticized for promoting Gab on his show, a social media platform favored by the alt-right. In December he apologized for sharing a tweet from the white nationalist and anti-Semitic Red Ice website.
Fox News had not responded to a request for comment at the time of publication.
If you haven’t read George Will’s brutal takedown of “the worst person in government,” Mike Pence, rectify that now.
PENCE BACKS REPORTER BAN Vice President Mike Pence has stood by a White House decision to ban a CNN reporter from a press event last week, citing the need to maintain “decorum.” According to a Washington Post report, Trump has repeatedly tried to ban reporters he doesn’t like. [HuffPost]
These old columns by Mike Pence musing on how a president should behave have aged rather badly.
Fox News is poisoning America. Rupert Murdoch and his heirs should be shunned.
