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.|
