In case you missed it, Laura Ingraham gave the stemwinder speech of the year Wednesday night at the 2016 Republican national convention. Her beaming smile made her tenacity all the more electric as she grabbed the delegates, and millions watching on TV, by the throat with her conservative common sense and razor wit. Here are some highlights:
“My dad enlisted in the Navy in WWII. My mom waited tables until she was 73 years old. My dad worked at his car wash. My parents flew the flag at our house, and not just on the fourth of July. They scrapped and saved. My mother made my clothes. She wore the same winter coat for 40 years. Any extra money in our house went into the bank for our education. And we learned that there is dignity in every job. Every job! No matter what you do. You see, my parents didn’t believe there were jobs that Americans wouldn’t do!”
“Respect is in decline in America once again. The people don’t respect the government. The government doesn’t respect the people, not even our veterans. Politicians don’t respect the Constitution. Many do not respect the life of the infant in the womb or the elderly who languish alone. Others don’t respect the police . . . and many in public office don’t enforce or respect the rule of law. Isn’t that right, Mrs. Clinton?”
“We should all – even all you boys with wounded feelings and bruised egos (and we love you!) – you must honor your pledge to support Donald Trump now. Tonight!”
“We need a president who believes in the Constitution and will fight for us, not against us. Treat us like an ally, not an enemy. Fight alongside with us. We are not the enemy, we’re the people! We’re not your servants, you’re ours!”
“And to all my friends up there, in the press. You all know why, in your heart, Donald Trump won the nomination. Because he dared to call out the phonies, the frauds, and the corruption that has gone unexposed and uncovered for too long. Too long! Do your job!”
“Donald Trump respects us enough to tell us the hard truth about what has happened to our country.”
Laura was so hot, so spot on, that the left immediately peed their pants, and proceeded to make up a cartoonish tweet accusing her of giving her audience a Nazi salute – which was, of course, scooped up by the breathless lamestream media. You can’t make this stuff up! A single mother of three adopted kids who rose from humble beginnings to graduate from Dartmouth and then become a clerk for Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, a defense attorney, a speechwriter for Ronald Reagan, a best-selling author, a radio and TV superstar – is a Nazi, according to the desperate left.
Maybe there’s hope for common sense, grass roots, patriotic, hard-working Americans after all. Rock on, Laura!
