Michelle Malkin - Queen of the Black Hearted

America is still reeling from the events in Newton, Connecticut last week. During this holiday season, there are 26 families who will be grieving instead of celebrating, still wondering and trying to make sense of everything that happened. On Friday, the NRA added fuel to that painful fire by having a distasteful "news conference" essentially telling all of us that what happened last week was the fault of everyone and everything BUT the NRA and guns (my most favorite of LaPierre's reasons for what happened? Obama's budget plan. Yeah, I don't even know...) LaPierre offered the NRA's suggestions to keep this from happening once again and arming everyone and their mother was the essential point. The media immediately lambasted LaPierre for his insensitive remarks, both conservative (obvious liberal conspiracy) and liberal publications alike.

Cue in Michelle Malkin. For anyone who isn't familiar with her, she's a spiteful hate monger who works part time for Fox News, runs a website and stalks her opponents on Twitter. In some of her worst works, she wrote a book defending the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War 2. She defends torture, hate speech and violence and despises immigrants. In other words, she's everything the right-wing is trying to be. Anyway, she was on Fox News (obviously) this morning, whining, complaining and crying over the response to the NRA in the days following the incident in Newton. Her quote (and I'm not making this up):

"This should be a time of sober reflection and an inclusive time for EVERY American with a diverse viewpoint in the national conversation about gun violence, about the culture, and somehow so many people, particularly in the crazed, anti-gun liberal media have demonized the NRA and its millions of law-abiding, peaceful gun owners who are practicing their constitutionally-protected Second Amendment rights."
During the entire interview, Malkin and Fox and Friends blamed liberals for demonizing an organization who has paid off congress and state governments to write some of the most loose gun laws we've seen in years. She just couldn't believe the public outcry the NRA has had to "deal with" since last week. How dare we question their ideology! Surely, no gun violence is EVER the fault of the group who advocates an armed overthrow of the government, or that all teachers should carry guns, or that all American's should have guns in order to "defend themselves from the US federal government."  No, that would never attribute to gun violence! What could go wrong there?? Sigh. This appears to be the most compelling evidence yet that the lack of critical thinking skills required to tackle serious problems is a requirement for employment with Fox News. I think it's safe to say that the outrage directed at the NRA, is incredibly justified.

My question for Malkin is this - when are you going to think of the families of the 26 people who were murdered? When will you show caring for the thousands of families affected by gun violence in our nation EVERY YEAR. When are you going to show compassion? But most importantly, why are you SO MEAN?

Take the hint, Michelle.


  1. First Amendment:
    Freedoms, Petitions, Assembly

    "CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

    "Congress Shall make no law...." This amendment starts with bold, assertive, exclusive language.

    Second Amendment:
    Right to keep and bear arms

    "A WELL REGULATED MILITIA, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

    "A well regulated militia...." The first words proclaiming this right bespeak caution, limited scope, oversight, a recognition that abuses are predictable and will require regulation.

  2. You are right, Michelle Malkin is filled with hate and stidently defends the nutcase right. Malkin got her start in journalism working for the Competitive Enterprise Institute, funded heavily by the Koch Brothers and Richard Mellon Scaife. Her books through Regnery Publishing are financed by that same crowd.
    The NRA, one of the biggest political lobbyists in Washington, also gets funding from these same sources. These people are extreme sociopaths, dedicated to allowing as many people to die as possible. Their ideas are insane and should be corrected for the good of the population.
