She's a different kind of nutbag, Our Lady of the Concentration Camps. Not that her defense of the interment camps and the monetary rape of the Japanese wasn't enough, but there's a veritable buffet of other things about which to hate on her. For instance, her defense of white supremacist Steve Sailer. Racism follows her like the flies on Ann Coulter's literary vomit. Another case in point, the sordid tale of Michelle Malkin and her puppeteer husband Jesse - two voices, acting as one, wrapped up in a pretty package. Easy-to-digest racism for the masses.
Back when the swiftboating of John Kerry was underway, she went on Hardball and not only accused Kerry of self inflicting his wounds in Vietnam, but backpedalled the entire segment. Read the transcript, scroll about 2/3 down for it. Here's an excerpt:
MATTHEWS: And they said he shot himself on purpose to avoid combat or take credit for a wound?Then she goes and blabs about Chris Matthews for putting her in her place, calling it "ambush journalism". Notice how she never once, even on her own terms without someone grilling her for it, casts a single bit of sway one way or the other on his question. It was a pointed question, no? Do you agree, yes or no? But like all Republican pundits and politicians, there is this complete separation of reality and fantasy. They immediately go to the condescending snipe attack of rhetorical bullshit as an offering of answers. It's pathetic, and Malkin is a wizard at it. She gives Assrocket & Jonah Goldberg a run for their money, and I'm betting she wants to be Ann Coulter so bad she can hardly stand it. Did I mention the ocean of hypocrisy this bitch swims in? She jumped on the immigration bandwagon here in a blog post about 'anchor babies'. Thing is, she happens to be one.
MALKIN: These people have cast a lot of doubt on whether or not...
MATTHEWS: That‘s cast a lot of doubt. That‘s complete nonsense.
MALKIN: Did you read the section in the book...
MATTHEWS: I want a statement from you on this program, say to me right, that you believe he shot himself to get credit for a purpose of heart.
MALKIN: I‘m not sure. I‘m saying...
MATTHEWS: Why did you say?
MALKIN: I‘m talking about what‘s in the book.
MATTHEWS: What is in the book. Is there—is there a direct accusation in any book you‘ve ever read in your life that says John Kerry ever shot himself on purpose to get credit for a purple heart? On purpose?
MATTHEWS: On purpose? Yes or no, Michelle.
MALKIN: In the February 1969 -- in the February 1969 event.
MATTHEWS: Did he say on it purpose.
MALKIN: There are doubts about whether or not it was intense rifle fire or not. And I wish you would ask these questions of John Kerry instead of me.
MATTHEWS: I have never heard anyone say he shot himself on purpose.
I haven‘t heard you say it.
MALKIN: Have you tried to ask—have you tried ask John Kerry these questions?
MATTHEWS: If he shot himself on purpose. No. I have not asked him that.
MALKIN: Don‘t you wonder?
MATTHEWS: No, I don‘t. It‘s never occurred to me.
What bothers me most about her at the moment is the shitstorm she instigated at UC Santa Cruz. It's a bit complicated so I'll give the cliffs notes version. Basically, some students there were protesting military recruiters on campus, which is not really that big a deal considering. What really got it blown way the hell up was when Malkin blogged about it, posting the contact information about students & faculty specifically so her nutbag followers would go after them, which they did - with a vengeance See some examples here. Here's the rub - when it came back to bite her in the ass, she had the nerve to whine about others doing the same to her, after she got the initial ball rolling in the opposite direction. "I am now forced to remove one of my children from school and move my family," Malkin wrote Thursday in an e-mail to the Sentinel. Boo-fucking-hoo, stupid cunt - you started the shit, don't cry when it comes back on you. People who originally were fans of her drivel slowly began turning against her. The dog that bites the hardest always comes from your own kennel, they say. Crossing the line much? She's blogged before against liberals invading the privacy of others, so this double standard doesn't wash. The lesser-Malkin/Coulter even got herself worked up about it. And is it just me, or do these Republican women all have a thing for trying to model themselves physically after the garishness of Katherine Harris? Whatever. Anyway, it gets worse with the UCSC thing, stay with me.
One of the people Malkin posted info for was Denice Denton, UCSC Chancellor for failing to expel the students involved in the protest. The minions went after her, and about two weeks ago, she committed suicide. smears the dead woman, surprising practically no one. See for yourself how she tries to backpedal on it, knowing full well she released the hounds from hell on Denton. I'm not suggesting that this poor woman's blood is on Malkin's hands, but if it were simply a matter of suggesting someone write in a complaint then that's one thing. I personally wouldn't shed a tear if someone shot both Malkin AND Coulter to death, but I'm not handing some nutbag a shotgun and giving them contact information am I?
You'd think that a decent person would at the very least keep themselves inline as a journalist and uphold the integrity of the institution by not going against it's principles. So much for Malkin's last microcosmic cell of decency. No matter though, Malkin's going to take Coulter's place as soon as Coulter's head rolls from the plagiarism thing, and if not then there will be others to pick up the torch. My money is on Pamela, Katherine Harris' more whorish looking doppelgänger. Because really, you cannot have enough vanity passing for substance when you're an attention whore. If Paris Hilton had a brain stem, I bet she'd blog for the GOP.
