On Monday, Fox News host Laura Ingraham triggered leftists when she described the child detention facilities housing illegal immigrant youth as “essentially summer camps.”
“As more illegal immigrants are rushing the border, more kids are being separated from their parents,” she said. “And temporarily housed at what are, essentially, summer camps.”

Here’s the full segment to provide some context:
According to The Hill:
Ingraham noted that The San Diego Union Tribune had compared the camps to “boarding schools.”
The paper wrote that “many elements” of one particular center “seem like what one would expect from a boarding school.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the “zero tolerance” policy at the border earlier this year. The policy has received backlash from Democrats and Republicans, with dozens of lawmakers and other prominent political figures calling on President Trump to reverse the policy.
Naturally, Trump-hating leftists were triggered by her comments and took to social media:
"Laura Ingraham" Summer camp for dogs is nicer than these detention centers and none of the dogs are ever put in cages. I think Laura and all her swamp friends need to be locked in cages.

As is so often the case, she was called a “Nazi,” because that’s all leftists can do, and as far as they are concerned, there are over 60 million Nazis in America right now.
Laura Ingraham is an unapologetic, straight up, real Nazi.

And the hate became personal:
Can someone taunt Laura Ingraham for her fiance leaving her because she was an infertile barren looney? Wait, I think I just did.

And more Nazi comparisons:
These xenophobes and Nazi wannabes have no bounds…

Laura Ingraham should take his entire family and his Nazi enablers fox news crew and supporters to that camp for summer holiday!

Keep in mind, the Nazi comparisons are designed to foment even more hate and possibly violence.
As Rush Limbaugh noted Monday, all of this is manufactured by the same people who said nothing when Obama enforced the same policy:
This children and families being separated at the border? It is an entirely manufactured crisis. It’s entirely manufactured. This has been going on for years. It happened during the Obama administration. Nobody said a word about it, primarily the media. Some might say, “Well, that doesn’t excuse it continually happening.” You gotta keep it all in perspective, and wait ’til you understand why. This is all about asylum seekers, folks. It’s all about people attempting to invade our country, not emigrate here.
Limbaugh further noted:
They can’t remind people of the low unemployment numbers. They certainly can’t remind African-Americans that they’re doing much better than they ever have done under any Democrat administration, but especially that of Barack Hussein O. Let’s throw in the fact that there’s actually been a head-to-head sat down with the communist tyrant thug of North Korea, Kim Jong-un. Consumer confidence is racing. They have to change the subject. So what do they do when they change the subject?
By the way, here’s an inside look at the Casa Padre Shelter in Brownsville, Texas:
