After 17 long years, Laura Ingraham's radio show is finally off the air.

Fox News host Laura Ingraham is down one platform for sharing her cruel and bigoted commentary after her 17-year radio program was shuttered this month.

Media Matters put together a list of the many times Ingraham and her guests used her radio show to “make cruel jokes, practice racism, demonize immigrants, and push wild conspiracy theories.”

A sampling of some of Ingraham’s most repulsive moments:

She asserted that “Middle Eastern countries have got to be told… we’re cutting you off,” questioned why the U.S. should allow Muslim immigration ”knowing that we can't tell if an Islamic individual is going to be radicalized," and said the U.S. should only accept refugees “who we can verifiably say are Christians. … But all these other people, they've got to stay in the Middle East.”

Ingraham claimed that Trump’s assertion that Mexico is “sending rapists” is true, and stated that Mexicans “have come here to murder and rape our people.”

She parroted Trump in claiming that “nobody has a right to be here except the people who are born here,” and said the United States should shoot deported immigrants if they try to re-enter the country.

She complained that “dual immersion classes in Spanish” being taught in U.S. schools make you “think you’re in a foreign country,” and she said that multilingual schools are "costing the good people -- Catholics, Christians -- that’s costing them opportunities and money."

She criticized former President Barack Obama’s response to the 2014 Ebola epidemic, claiming that his “core ties to the African continent” were putting public safety at risk. She also suggested Obama was purposely exposing American troops to the Ebola virus to “atone” for colonialism

After then-gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis (R-FL) warned Florida voters to not “monkey this up” by electing his Black Democratic opponent Andrew Gillum, Ingraham defended him while she played a songcalled “Shock the Monkey.” She also complained that “apparently if you’re white, you just can’t criticize an opponent at all.”
