Laura Ingraham is taking a “vacation” amid the advertiser boycott and the overblown outrage stemming from a dumb and innocuous tweet about David Hogg. Expedia, Trip Advisor, Hulu, Office Depot and several other companies have pulled their ads. Ingraham quickly apologized, but the Left, and Hogg, still aren’t satisfied. Hogg is now demanding that she issue apologies to all of the other people she allegedly wronged, including Lebron James. ​After that apology has been issued, she will need to put on a dunce hat and write 100 sentences on the blackboard. Maybe then he, in his wisdom and mercy, will consider granting her plea for forgiveness.

This is how it goes. Ingraham bowed to the outraged mob but they have not relented. Why? Because the outrage mob isn’t really outraged. This is all an elaborate charade. Ingraham’s petty little tweet about David Hogg didn’t hurt, offend, upset, or otherwise cause any sort of damage to anyone. Least of all to David Hogg himself, who, as he’s since made exceedingly clear, is grateful for the chance it afforded him to do some damage to a woman he despises.

The Left is just playing the game, and this is the way the game works. Somebody says something offensive or “offensive,” and the opportunists who reside on the opposite end of the political spectrum immediately grab ahold of it and squeeze it dry like a sponge. They make sure to get every last drop of advantage they can out of the dumb, irrelevant thing that nobody in the country actually cares about. It doesn’t matter if you apologize because apologies only matter to honest people who are honestly aggrieved. But nobody in the outrage mob is honest and none of them are honestly aggrieved. And that is why you should never apologize to them or in front of them.

If you have committed an offense that is actually very bad, and may really have hurt or scandalized a large number of people in some way, then maybe the public apology is necessary. But if you are guilty of getting slightly carried away in your speech, or making some rude but harmless comment, and the pitchforks are coming after you as if you had been caught drop-kicking dolphins, then the public apology is unwise and counterproductive. And cowardly.
