STATEMENT FROM THE LINCOLN PROJECT REGARDING LAURA INGRAHAM’S ANTI-POLICE RANT

July 28, 2021 Tuesday, July 27, Fox News host Laura Ingraham mocked the law enforcement officers who delivered testimony about their traumatic experience protecting the United States Capitol on January 6. In response, The Lincoln Project released the following statement:

“Ingraham and her guests frequently parrot ‘back the blue’ talking points, but when it comes to supporting the officers who defended democracy from domestic terrorism, they mock, jeer, and disrespect them. Every Republican in Congress should be asked on the record whether they agree with Ingraham’s characterization of the January 6 law enforcement officers and whether they will refuse to join the show in the future. In the coming weeks, The Lincoln Project will take a look at the advertisers and guests on The Ingraham Angle and seek to pressure them into abandoning the show.”

There is no time for complacency.

There is no time for living room activism. Every day must be spent asking ourselves if we’re doing our part, if we’re doing enough to ensure that the grand idea called America continues.
