I'm not quite sure what to say about this. But at the Republican National Convention last night, after very conservative radio talk show host finished her speech, and then turned to the Donald Trump box and gave him a Nazi salute.
I know there are always different interpretations of whether that's actually what she did. And I'm quite sure she'll insist she didn't and was just waving, and it's all the liberal Main Stream Media. Blah, blah, blah. But I watched the video over and over and over. And I kept trying to give her the benefit of the doubt. But I can't. She's giving the Nazi salute.
We all know what a wave is. You raise your wrist and wiggle it. We also know what it's like if you want to get someone's attention in a crowd -- you put one finger out and point. And we all know what greeting a crowd is. You put your hand straight up in the air and swing the arm.
And we know what a Nazi salute is. And this is that.
I'm not going to embed a video or picture of it. I don't want to give the image that intention. But if you're interested, you'll be able to find it easily. Just search for "Laura Ingraham" and "Nazi salute." I am certain you'll find it.
By the way, I want to be clear -- I don't think Laura Ingraham is a Nazi. And I don't think she was saluting Donald Trump that way because he his either, or even because she thinks she is. What I think is that Laura Ingraham is a small-minded, petty, smarmy conservative who likes to try and be a provocateur and say outrageous things that will upset liberals, so she probably was trying her best (a limited task) to tweak people with any sense of human decency and respect. The salute isn't long, she didn't want it to be that obvious, which would be a problem, but it's quick, like she's a little kid trying to do something naughty, before she turns back to the crowd and actually waves. So, we know she knows how to really wave, and we can see the difference.
Yes, I'm quite sure she will insist in outrage that she never did such a thing, and it's the fault of all those damn liberals.
She almost must be pissed off that they ever invented video.
