How long until we ban police? Fox guest talks slippery slope of ‘fostering hate’ toward cops

The slippery slope argument has been proven accurate time and again, so as society continues to leftist outrage determine what is or isn’t permissible, one podcaster had to ask, how long until police are banned altogether?

Were there any place one would expect to be off limits to criticism for police officers to honor their fellow members, it would be at their police departments. Yet, it only took one single complaint for the LAPD to issue a department-wide directive banning the display of the Thin Blue Line flag in public areas.

Tuesday night, podcaster and PragerU personality Amala Ekpunobi joined Fox News host Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle” to react to the continued “fostering [of] hate.”

“This is a question we should be asking ourselves. How long is it gonna take them to ban police uniforms or even police altogether? Because there’s plenty of leftists that think the police are directly tied to white supremacy,” she began telling the host.

As previously covered, LAPD Chief Michel Moore prohibited displaying the Thin Blue Line flag after a complaint shared “the view that it symbolized support for violent extremist views, such as those represented by the Proud Boys and others.”

Moore attempted to show compassion for the views of officers by adding, “It’s unfortunate that extremist groups have hijacked the use of the ‘Thin Blue Line flag’ to symbolize their undemocratic, racist, and bigoted views,” and went on to express the flag, “to me presents the honor, valor, dedication, and sacrifice of law enforcement to protect our communities.”

However, after speaking with members of the LAPD, Ekpunobi said that message didn’t land and, “They said their morale has taken a hit, their trust in power has taken a hit, and they’re really not feeling up to doing their jobs anymore and there’s no question as to why this is happening.”

She went on to point to the history of the Thin Blue Line that inspired the flag and told Ingraham it “was actually popularized in the 1950s by none other than, funnily enough, LAPD’s police chief who said there was a thin line between law and order and civility, and complete and utter social anarchy.”

“So honestly, getting rid of his flag might be a sign of the times because if you look at Los Angeles and Atlanta and Chicago and New York City, these cities, they’re in shambles,” she added reflecting on the violent crime rates and policing problems exacerbated by progressive leaders in city halls and district attorneys offices.

Ingraham then pivoted to the larger cultural issue at hand by sharing a clip of Kesha Hamilton, a Michigan school board member with a “history of making racist comments” who had said as recently as December that “whiteness is evil.”

“So police and education is all mired in white supremacy,” the host said based on the leftist ideologies, prompting Ekpunobi to joke, “As a half-white, half-black person I don’t know which side of myself to hate or which side of myself to like” before noting seriously, “and this is where we’re at right now as a country and it’s really unfortunate that we’re sending young black children, young students of color, into environments like this.”

She concluded, “They’re fostering hate, they’re fostering a divide and they’re pitting students against each other when they should be together there to learn and grow and build a community.”
