Laura Ingraham misses unhindered racism

“in some parts of the country, it does seem like
the America that we know and love doesn’t exist anymore”

so laments the racist Fox TV/radio talk show host

and she’s so very right recalling the old days
when the people were lynched for any excuse
a teenager could be hanged for allegedly whistling at a white woman

also the bloody good old days were when slavery was legal
and black slaves were available to work on plantations
sugar, rice, cotton, tobacco, etc. were plentiful
our hard working capitalists didn’t have to go to China and elsewhere
as they now do to sell or make things we over-consume and over-waste

the land was plentiful and belonged to the Native Americans/Indians
but the white men kept on stealing and stealing and stealing more of it …
then in 1830s the 7th US President Andrew Jackson declared:

“They [the Natives] have neither
the intelligence, the industry, the moral habits,
nor the desire of improvement
which are essential to any change in their condition.
Established in the midst of another and superior race,
they must necessarily yield
to the force of circumstances and ere long disappear.”

those were the good old days
when you could steal land from the Natives
you could extract free labor from the slaves
also, the Natives/blacks were not everywhere
so you could spot them when you wanted free labor

Ingraham misses the all-white people she was used to seeing:
“Massive demographic changes have been foisted
upon … [us which] most of us don’t like. …”

although she has adopted a brown (Guatemalan) baby in 2008
she doesn’t want blacks/browns in the United States
but wouldn’t mind more white people in the US
such as the two Slovenes who became the US citizens
our Beloved Dear President Donald Trump’s mother/father-in-law
