Ingraham Retweets White Supremacist Group Blaming Immigrants For Spreading COVID At Iowa Meat Plants

Media Matters reports:

Fox News host Laura Ingraham retweeted a link Thursday night from white nationalist site VDare for an article blaming immigrant communities for the spread of coronavirus at meatpacking plants.

VDare is a white nationalist group that pushes the “great replacement” conspiracy theory, which alleges that white people are being systematically “replaced” by people of color through mass immigration.

The site recently posted a YouTube video calling for a white ethnostate, titled “Whites Have Rights: It’s Time to Get Serious About Secession,” and has also run commentary speaking favorably about the ideologies of white nationalist mass shooters in El Paso, Texas, and Christchurch, New Zealand.

VDare is named for Virginia Dare, who supposedly was the first white child born in what would become the United States. At the 2016 Republican convention, two of their tweets were displayed on the arena’s Jumbotron, which the group continues to boast about in their Twitter profile.
