*So it finally happened. After several stories in the media commiserating the death of rapper Nipsey Hussle, a former gang member who was trying to turn around his old hood through investment and education, FOX News, the neo-fascist network decided to step in.
This was never going to end well. FOX News Channel (FNC) appeals to angry old white men, who long for the 1950s. To them, rap music, an art form which consists of young black men talking, not singing, represents everything they hate. This is not new.
When Bill O’Reilly was on FNC, he seemed to have a personal vendetta against hip hop. He often attacked rap stars like P. Diddy and once caused Ludacris to lose an endorsement deal with Pepsi.
O’Reilly is long gone, but there are several junior fascists vying for his title. One of them is Laura Ingraham (pictured above), a second-generation neo-Nazi. Last week she attempted to tackle Nipsey Hussle death by laughing at his song “F**k Donald Trump.” She mocked Hussle’s song and pointed out how inaccurate it was. Yes, she laughed at a dead man.
This is shocking but not surprising. As I have written before, Ingraham has a long history of racially insensitive comments. Nowadays, she spouts openly white nationalist rhetoric such as claiming mass immigration was changing the culture for the worse.
