Gun grabber David Hogg thought he had the perfect plan.
He targeted Laura Ingraham for career destruction by ginning up an advertiser boycott.
But his plan just backfired in a major way.
Over 20 advertisers fled Ingraham’s program after social media bully David Hogg targeted them for a boycott after Ingraham mocked him about four California colleges rejecting his application for admission.
Ingraham took a one week vacation and some on the left thought they would claim another Fox News scalp.
But it’s Ingraham who is having the last laugh.
Ratings on her show were up 20 percent in his first week back since the controversy.
“A funny thing has happened since the Left began its campaign to drive Fox News host Laura Ingraham off the air: Her ratings are up, a lot — by more than 20 percent compared to her last week on the air before the current controversy began.
The leftist-organized advertiser boycott began on March 29, after Ingraham tweeted about Parkland high school anti-gun activist David Hogg, and continued in spite of Ingraham’s quick apology.
As of Friday, April 13, 27 companies had announced they would pull their advertising from the show, but one — Ace Hardware — announced it would resume its sponsorship of the Ingraham Angle, citing the “incomplete” information it had when it originally announced its withdrawal.
Other advertisers, such as MyPillow, issued statements defying the boycott and announcing their continued support for Ingraham’s show.”
Fox News ended up putting out a statement declaring they would not be intimidated by ideological bullies who want to silence points of view they disagree with.
But it wasn’t just the network that stood behind Ingraham.
It was patriotic Americans who were sick and tired of gun grabbing teenagers trying to enlist corporate American as their ideological enforcers in order to bully pro-Second Americans into submission.
