Laura Ingraham’s Attack On Russell Simmons Omits Key Detail

Reported by Priscilla - August 25, 2010 -

Laura Ingraham is a great, big Christian. We know that because she wears a great, big Christian cross! And like her fellow Christian cross fans, she is doing her best to circulate the meme that African American hip-hop mogul, Russell Simmons, makes “stupid,” and anti-Christian comments. (Breitbart's headline, on "Big Hollywood" is "Russell Simmons Blames Christians For First WTC Attack?" Malkin's cites "Russell Simmons’ Def History Lesson Jam: Christians Bombed the WTC in 1993?") The right wing have their nice, white, Christian panties in a wad because Russell Simmons, during a discussion of the NY Islamic cultural center on last week's Larry King show (August 19th), said that "If you're blaming Muslims for the attack on 9/11, then you need to change your mind. We didn't- did we blame Christians at the first World Trade attack?” The next day (August 20th) he “tweeted” that he “Made critical error on CNN last nite. Was thinking of last major terrorist attack on US soil in OKC by McVeigh & misspoke.” Laura Ingraham, filling in for Bill O’Reilly on last night’s (August 24th) “Factor,” played the video of Simmons' CNN comment and snarked, “that’s scary, stupid. For making those comments, Mr. Simmons is obviously a pinhead with a capital P.” She didn’t note that Simmons admitted to having made a mistake. So is Ms. Ingraham too lazy to do the necessary research for a “fair & balanced” report or knowing the truth, did she deliberately avoid reporting on it because the propaganda value of an African American saying a “scary, stupid, thing” was more important? Ingraham didn’t have, as I did, a Catholic education. So perhaps she should check her Cathechism for “sins of omission.” Laura Ingraham omitted a key part of this story. Russell Simmons, who makes a valid point about how another terrorist attack on Americans was committed by a Christian, deserves an apology.

And Laura, If you're going to wear the ostentatious cross bling, you might want to check out what the guy who died on the cross said about "Judging lest ye be judged." Ya think!
