Laura Ingraham said the left has changed the discourse of freedom from something that once mattered, to now an “issue” standing in the way of the Democratic agenda Monday on “The Ingraham Angle.”

Ingraham said that with protests and freedom convoys around the world inspiring millions to take a stand against totalitarian measures, officials who thought they would never be held accountable are now becoming “desperate”.

“Weak and ineffective leaders don’t change course even when COVID recedes, because I’ve been saying for almost two years now, it was never about the virus. It was about creating a docile audience, an audience docile who was somehow prepared to obey the next lockdown order. No questions asked,” Ingraham said.

Ingraham went on to explain the myriad “attacks” on our basic freedoms.

“School closures rob children of a quality education that was the freedom to learn the facts, and sweeping mandates for vaccines and masks have robbed us of our freedom to decide what we put in our own bodies. Stay-at-home orders destroyed small businesses while big business flourished It was our freedom to work Then Big Tech censorship where YouTube, Twitter, Facebook acted as the word police by proxy for the government, our freedom of speech. Anyone who didn’t say the Fauci line, even treating physicians and renowned researchers were threatened. They were suspended, slandered and even completely banned,” Ingraham said.

The host also pointed to several examples of Biden pushing back against the idea of ​​freedom “I like the way people talk about personal freedom. If you’re exercising personal freedom, should you be putting someone else at risk, his health in danger? I don’t consider it freedom,” Biden said, in one example.

“I never thought I’d hear a president say something like that,” Ingraham said. “And the media picks it up and repeats it with its own lame bluster. Now the message is to be afraid of those who want freedom,”

Despite this war on freedom waged by authoritarian Democrats, Ingraham says this “anti-freedom coalition” is collapsing.

“Even though the end for them always justifies the means, we know what was going on. And so did the press, but they didn’t cover the stories that mattered. They covered them. But here’s the good news. The anti – the coalition for freedom is collapsing.”
