Laura “Beauregard” Ingraham Tips Her 2018 Confederate Hat to a Dead Racist and a Dead War that the South Lost in the 1800s

-- ADVERTISEMENT --

A pro-Trump business group in Louisiana is walking back support of known FOX TV white supremacist Laura Ingraham after another “senior moment” in Republican history that matches the wits of their illustrious fascist leader in Washington DC, Donald Trump.

Ingraham’s centuries-elderly support of an old dead confederacy that had zero impact on American history except to prove racists wrong -AGAIN- imploded into her pathetic childish gurgling and empathetic gushing over a drum’n’bugle race deep war hero who basically got his ass kicked in the old south more than 150 years ago.

The Louisiana Association of Business and Industry (LABI) had to make a public statement of their disapproval of Ingraham’s tired old punditry when she went in to defend long-deceased and thoroughly meaningless Confederate general Robert E. Lee, an American artifact on which a check cannot be cashed, at an event where she was plugged in as the keynote speaker.

The New Orleans’ Times-Picayune reported that LABI, a group that has publicly endorsed many decisions made by useless Russian operative Donald Trump, issued a statement distancing the group from Ingraham’s illiterate remarks.

The LABI Statement
“Ingraham … expressed her views on several national social and political issues, some of which are not reflective of the opinions held by the diverse membership of the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry. LABI has a long history of listening to all perspectives in a bipartisan manner to develop solutions to Louisiana’s challenges.”

The Antebellum Ruse
The overly-celebrated FOX jock Ingraham, of course, criticized their decision due to her personal mental health issues regarding love of racism over country, and due to her self-attenuated verbal approval of sexual harassment against women.

In an act made for television reality show drama, such as we have seen coming from the likes of Trump’s political charades, she also criticized New Orleans Mayor Rich Landrieu and unsympathetically targeted recent brain cancer victim, Arizona Senator John McCain(R), and many others that their canned Republican anti-social speeches tend to focus on whenever they feel a need to show solidarity with the Republican Playbook on keeping American racism and Hitler-type fascism alive.

Ingraham also noted that she may try another desperate old Republican trick by buying property in Lousiana so she can run for office in a state where she was not born and does not live currently, definitely a tactic they have used alongside gerrymandering for many years to cheat the voting systems across the nation.

Shamefully enough, in what white men of her caliber would refer to as a “dumb blond” comedic gesture, Ingraham did not hesitate to also make this weak-willed and irrelevant statement in the presence of the actual Governor of Louisiana, John Bel Edwards.

The shameful ruse was Ingraham’s “Dan Quayle” moment in Louisiana, where she embarrassed not only the LABI organization, but also the mayor and the governor in her dementia-related bid to “Bring Back the Confederacy,” something the GOP has been unwilling to admit was a lost cause when it happened more than a century ago.

LABI has not issued a statement on how an attention whore like Ingraham would have been chosen to speak for an organization that claims it has no partisan relationships that reflect on their core values and mission as businesspersons in Lousiana.
