The Democratic Party often plays coy when it comes to the word “socialism,” but Fox News host Laura Ingraham fired up the Republican base Thursday by stamping that label squarely on the donkey’s forehead.
Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference, Ingraham warned that the Democrats’ plan for fighting President Trump’s agenda is not just to lean left, but to hurl themselves face-first.
“The Democrat Party of today responds to peace and prosperity… with socialism,” she said.
Ingraham described the left’s socialism as “a power grab by pick-pockets who think they know better how to spend your money than you do.”
“They put their hopes in large government,” she explained. “They put their hopes in dangling freebees to a new generation.”
Ingraham warned that if the left-wing extremism typified by policies such as the Green New Deal is not countered, socialism’s false promises will destroy America. “Your constitutional rights will be lost if you don’t stand to defend them.”
