Fox News’ Laura Ingraham called out the “propaganda war” being waged against American history, calling protesters “the new Bolsheviks.”
In the opening monologue of “The Ingraham Angle” on Wednesday, the Fox News host highlighted the left’s attempts to “cancel America” over the last few decades as they have “successfully purged almost all conservatives from academia, the entertainment industry, and journalism.”

“One by one those sectors ultimately fell victim to oppressive groupthink, which had a terrible effect on their work product and their credibility,” Ingraham added.
“Dissent was not tolerated and the punishment for deviating from the sentiment du jour grew harsher over time,” she said.”Even liberals aren’t immune: Who can forget when comedian Kevin Hart lost his Oscars gig a few years back or how colleges have routinely reacted to conservative speakers on campus?”
Ingraham warned that “as we have been reminded over these last 14 days or so, the culture is where the battle for our future will be won or lost.”
“When you see 20-somethings carrying signs that spell America with the KKK, yelling in the faces of police officers or National Guardsmen, remember that they learn this behavior from either their radical parents for their Progressive teachers, or maybe activist celebrities – all validated along the way by a fawning press corps,” she added.
“What we are witnessing is a relentless propaganda war against the old teachings about America,” she said. “It’s an effort to smear our history and our patriotic spirit.”
Ingraham told her viewers that she is “hard-pressed to name any prominent liberal who would openly oppose today’s cancel culture,” noting that just a few years back, some theories that are now mainstream were questioned by some liberals and conservatives alike.
Pointing to examples of classic literature being bashed, classic films like “Gone with the Wind” being pulled from view and the nation’s monuments being vandalized, Ingraham slammed the “new Bolsheviks” who “are eager to wipe away everything that came before them and they want to force everyone else to beg for forgiveness.”
She expounded on the capitulation of celebrities, companies, politicians and businesses in America who are “falling all over themselves to placate or even work with these new revolutionaries.”
“None of this will work,” the Fox News host declared.
“Giving into threats always leads to more threats. These weak efforts at pandering are only going to encourage the kind of nonsense we are seeing tonight in Portsmouth, Virginia, and we will get to that in a moment,” she said. “More controls and less freedom, that’s what’s coming.”
Reiterating that “the more you beg, the more they take,” Ingraham went on to warn that if Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden wins in November, “the Antifa-BLM crowd is going to go through him like a hot knife through butter.”

“Whoever is really going to be governing the country if he ever became president will just keep trying to cut deals with the radicals. We’ll take down this statue here, adopt a slogan there until the main symbols of America will just basically be a bunch of nasty graffiti and charred buildings — those are going to be our monuments,” she predicted.
“Equal opportunity and equal treatment under the law will be replaced with a ring of cultural terror and retribution against the old order,” she added, pointing to the far-left extremists who have made a stand in Seattle as an example.
“All of us who still believe in free thought, free debate, who are against this campaign of bullying and intimidation, have to support a return to peace, prosperity and public safety,” Ingraham said.
“President Trump, you might think he is rough around the edges, but he’s the only candidate who will stand up for the average American against these modern-day Marxists. We need him to win. But that’s not enough,” she added. “The Democrats, who have tolerated and indeed fomented this violence, we need to teach them a lesson so vivid that they will finally gain the courage to take back their party from the radicals who dominate it.”
