Fox News star Laura Ingraham is back from her extended Easter break after losing advertisers thanks to the efforts of anti-gun activist David Hogg and other high-profile liberals. Her return included a powerful monologue about the state of conservative censorship.
Fox News Insider reports:
Laura Ingraham responded to the ongoing silencing and demeaning of conservative voices in America over the past several decades.
She said that “bullies on the left” are continuing to “aim to silence conservatives.”
Ingraham said educators first tried to indoctrinate 1980s students into believing Reaganism and conservative Constitutional principles were “racist” because the founders and other key icons of the movement were apparently “racist white men.”
“Their ultimate goal was to bully them into silence,” she said. “It failed.”
But, she said that the left’s “propaganda” did get through to some of the students and “shaped a new generation of young adults” who came up with new jargon like “safe spaces,” “microaggression” and “white privilege” as rhetorical tools to silence opposing views.

She cited a recent Brookings survey that said 51 percent of students find it appropriate to shout down a speaker’s opposing views.
Ingraham lamented the “contraction of free speech all around us.”
“People don’t even seem to notice,” she said, pointing out that little is made of events like a vicious attack on a Trump-supporting student by left-wing demonstrators in San Jose, Calif.
Kevin Williamson, a conservative Trump critic formerly at National Review, was recently fired by The Atlantic after an old podcast surfaced in which the writer characterized abortion as a homicide and said it should be punished similarly.
“Their efforts are Stalinist,” Ingraham said of the left’s intolerance. “We will never relent and we will never give in.”
She warned of an impending “transformation of American society… through demonization and silencing.”
