Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

In March of this year, Laura Ingraham got a speeding ticket that caused her to be late to her radio show. She was pissed off that she got caught speeding so when she got on her radio show, she started to spew irrational, illogical non-sense claiming that if she had told police she was an "illegal alien" she would not have been ticketed.

The audio of Ingraham's bigoted rant is on Breitbarf's blog (here) and starts at timestamp 0:50

LAURA INGRAHAM: They need to devote the time and the man hours to stopping real violent crimes and focus on the real violent crime. And people ... we're going to get the real violent crimes they need to be focusing on. They're targeting tax-paying, law-abiding Americans and meanwhile it's like 'ya well oh you're only -- you're only a 1 DWI, come into the country' -- 'yeah, ya want instate tuition ya you're a Dreamer come on.' Meanwhile we have to ugh ugh is there a speed camera here - is there a trap here? I should have just said I was an illegal alien. I would have gotten off right there. I just should have said, ‘Amnesty. I want amnesty please, OK? I’m an illegal alien. I just walked across the border last week ... 'oh sure go ahead' ...
ummmm ... someone should really tell Laura Ingraham that when she is speeding, she is no longer a law-abiding American ... rather ... she is a law breaker.
Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Recently Laura Ingraham asked if disagreeing with President Obama makes her a racist. I'll answer that. No, disagreeing with Obama is not what makes Laura Ingraham a racist.  Laura Ingraham's racism and bigotry was developed long before President Obama became President.

For instance, she's hated gays for decades and even disowned her gay brother. When she was in college she wrote for an off-campus conservative publication called the Dartmouth Review where Ingraham describes  gays as "cheerleaders for latent campus sodomites" and she described one of her black professor's hair-due as looking like a "used brillo pad."

I have no idea what makes people racists & bigots ... but this I do know, Laura Ingraham spews hate against many, many groups of people ... she is a racist & a bigot and has been for decades before President Obama was on the political scene.

One thing I find ironic and somewhat humorous about Ingraham is her loathing of amnesty & simultaneous love of Ronald Reagan.  Someone really should tell Ingraham that Reagan granted amnesty to millions of undocumented immigrants.

Ingraham figured out from the rightwinged Dartmouth Review that "hate sells" and since Ingraham has nothing of value to offer anyone who has more than two functioning brain cells - Ingraham sells her hate and her bigotry to the low IQ crowd that follow her.
