NEW YORK — Fox News Channel's Laura Ingraham is disavowing the support of white nationalists and claims her views about the nation's demographic changes have been distorted, although that hasn't quieted critics who see bigotry in her words.

Laura Ingraham: America as we know it doesn’t exist anymore due to ‘demographic changes’

  Laura Ingraham: America as we know it doesn’t exist anymore due to ‘demographic changes’ Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday lamented that the "American we know and love doesn't exist anymore" because of demographic changes in the country that she blamed on illegal and legal immigration. Ingraham was reacting to comments from Democratic House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who described in a recent podcast interview the way the country has changed over the past few decades, including the decline of the upper-middle class."She's kind of right in a general sense," Ingraham said after mocking Ocasio-Cortez's comments.

Her commentary this week leading into the one-year anniversary of a white nationalist demonstration that turned violent in Charlottesville, Virginia, has also drawn attention to how Fox speaks to an audience that is overwhelmingly white.

Ingraham said on Wednesday that "in major parts of the country, it does seem that the America we know and love doesn't exist anymore. Massive demographic changes have been foisted on the American people and they're changes that none of us ever voted for and most of us don't like."

As she spoke, film on the screen behind her depicted people scaling what appeared to be a giant border wall or slipping under a fence.

Shortly after, former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke tweeted a link to what she said, calling it "one of the most important (truthful) monologues in the history of MSM." He later deleted the tweet.

Yes, you can still recognize America

  Yes, you can still recognize America Laura Ingraham has been rightly condemned for her comments on Wednesday that “some of us no longer recognize our own country” due to “demographic changes that have been foisted upon us” against our will. Granted, she did some of this foisting herself when she adopted a daughter from Central America, and that makes her comments harder to understand. But to define Americans in terms of demography is just something Americans should never do. To be sure, there is a long history in this nation of descendants of earlier immigration waves resisting the arrival of those who come later.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham has woken up to the fact that there is more than just the one amendment to the US Constitution that covers guns. The election was the first since Robert Mugabe was ousted in a military coup last year, and featured a close race between Mnangagwa and

Ingraham said toward the end of Wednesday's commentary that she was not talking about race and ethnicity, and complained a night later that the disclaimer was being missed.

On Thursday, she said she had "a message to those who are distorting my views, including all white nationalists and especially one racist freak whose name I won't even mention, you don't represent my views and you are antithetical to the beliefs I hold dear."

Instead of race, she said she was talking about "a shared sense of keeping American safe and her citizens safe and prosperous.

"I want to make it really clear," she said. "My concern will remain with the families who have suffered from the tragic results of illegal immigration."

Still, MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski called it a "white supremacist speech" on Friday. CNN's Van Jones said that in discussing "demographic changes," Ingraham was clearly talking about race and ethnicity.

Graham calls for special counsel to investigate FBI's handling of Clinton emails, FISA warrant

  Graham calls for special counsel to investigate FBI's handling of Clinton emails, FISA warrant Claiming that FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton's emails and the Carter Page FISA warrant were "corrupt to the core," U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham on Wednesday called for the appointment of a special prosecutor to handle both probes. Graham, a South Carolina Republican, said FBI investigators were “in the tank” for Clinton and the FISA warrant process was abused -- possibly in a criminal fashion.

From the February 15 edition of Fox News' The Ingraham Angle NBA superstar Lebron James is talking politics again and this time it' s R-rated. Here' s his barely intelligible -- not to mention Laura Ingraham celebrates March On Washington 50th Anniversary with gunshots and race -baiting.

Fox issued a statement from Laura Ingraham , host of "The Ingraham Angle," Friday afternoon, denying any " racial intent" in James' longtime friend and teammate Dwyane Wade wasn ' t buying that race didn't play a factor in Ingraham ' s insulting remarks about the King' s lack of a college education.

"You dropped the dog whistle," Jones said on CNN. "You went with the megaphone. Now you're trying to pick up the dog whistle again. It's not going to work."

Fox management has said nothing about Ingraham's remarks, and a spokeswoman said Friday that the network's top executive, Suzanne Scott, was not immediately available for an interview.

Earlier this year, Scott told producers of Fox shows to do a better job keeping their on-air hosts and guests in line following a spate of controversial or offensive comments. It's not clear if she considers Ingraham's commentary in the same vein.

With a prime-time lineup of Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Ingraham, Fox has positioned itself to appeal to supporters of President Donald Trump, and frequently runs Trump's campaign rallies in full. The audience at Trump rallies is primarily white, and so it is for Fox: on average, its prime-time audience this year is 91 percent white and non-Hispanic, the Nielsen company said. MSNBC's audience is 69 percent white and CNN's is 57 percent, Nielsen said.

Ingraham's commentary could have business implications among some advertisers who are already skittish about her since she tweeted about Florida school shooting survivor David Hogg whining about being rejected from colleges. Hogg, who has become a gun control activist, responded by calling on advertisers to boycott her show.

Her program averaged 37 paid advertisements in March but was down to 15 in July, according to Media Matters for America, a liberal Fox News critic that monitors its programming.

Meanwhile, her viewership was up nearly 10 percent between the first three months of the year and the second three months, Nielsen said.
