Cue the Outrage Mongers: AmSpec – Michelle Malkin Is Wrong

By
March 28, 2014

Right-wing harpies are as, if not more annoying than the Left-wing strain due to their hypocrisy. And Twitchy often leads the pack when it comes to being the Twitter outrage police.

This PC speech police nonsense is particularly sad to see on the Right. One can’t hypocritically claim the 2nd Amendment is inviolate, while standing the 1st Amendment on its head because you don’t like what someone else says. And this isn’t mere grievance mongering. This, ultimately, is a form of scalp hunting that can not help but silence speech through fear and intimidation. Those are Leftist tactics and should be shunned by a supposedly liberty loving Right.

I am a big fan of blogger Michelle Malkin. … But today she got it wrong in her response to an offensive tweet from comedian Stephen Colbert. Well, partially wrong.

    Dan, PROBLEMS with that sentence abound.

    First, the straw man; who says “…the 2nd Amendment is inviolate…”?

    Second, how is it “hypocritical” for Malkin to call for Colbert to be canned?

    You seem to have the same basic misunderstanding of the concept a lot of folks do. It is not “hypocrisy” for an individual to hold a value, and fall short of its expression. A good example of a hypocrite is Bill Clinton and his pretense at any religious belief in Christianity when it is/was politically expedient. He PRETENDS to hold a value he does not, and has no intention of striving to express.

    It is not wrong to deplore bad conduct in others. And it is not a suppression of their “free speech” to condemn mean, hateful, stupid expression.

    I do think that anybody calling for Colbert’s ouster is a bridge too far, however. I think Malkin should walk that back, to the extent she did it.

    Malkin sold Twitchy quite a while ago. It’s not her podium anymore.
    I know that she sometimes overdoes things a bit, hence many seeing her as a overly-consistent harpy. I give her a pass, usually & listen to someone else. She has her niche.

    It’s always so illuminating to watch how racist the Collectivists really are.

    Well…and hateful.

    Sounds about right. Nobody is as bigoted as people who have permission from their in-group, and a false sense of moral superiority.

    Somebody is telling lies.

    The smart money is on Pres. ScamWOW and his outlaw gang.

    Well, that won’t work.

    And all this was predicted. Perverse incentives…all the way down.

    Some of us have been “going Galt” for some time.

    And apparently, being a hate-twisted, moronic troll just isn’t as “rewarding” as it once was…

    If a nation cannot or will not protect itself from illegal invaders, is it a nation at all?

    Well, despite his being a lying SOS, he inadvertently has a point.

    Really, how do you FIND any ACA any longer?

    All you have is a series of capricious Obamabanana Republic edicts. There is no “law” any longer.

    If you wanted to obey the act, you’d find that impossible.

    Refuse to comply.

    Does a commitment to diversity and inclusiveness include people who oppose gay marriage? Not to many who are unequivocally insisting new Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich endorse gay marriage or be fired.

    Over at the appropriately named “CREDO” action website, more than 65,000 have signed their names to this call for conformity and exclusiveness, or else:

    As the representative of a global brand that represents openness and is committed to equality and inclusiveness, Eich should make an unequivocal statement of support for marriage equality. If he cannot, he should resign. And if he will not, the board should fire Eich immediately.

    Eich gave money to the Proposition 8 campaign and now joins a growing number of people who face threats to their livelihoods unless they support gay marriage. He’s much richer than most such people, of course.

    See, it isn’t about “tolerance”.

    It is all about rigid, puritanical conformity.

    You have to APPROVE…publicly and on demand, like the Two Minute Hate…or else you are a ThoughtCriminal.
