Michelle Malkin: Professional Idiot


I have made it something of a habit to attack/criticize/make fun of the living SNL sketch that is Michelle Malkin. Every time she opens her mouth or her word-processor something hilariously stupid, inane, and/or offensive comes out. There was the time she criticized the rights of public employees while those same public employees were busy risking their lives to save her house from a wild fire, and there is the horrible hypocrisy of her attacking immigrants and children of non-citizens when her background is exactly that of those people she demonizes. Today though she really made an effort to come off as a brain-dead fool.

In her newest post on her comedy blog—I mean commentary blog she decries “wealth-shaming” (a terrible insult to women who have to deal with actually slut-shaming) and also defends for billionaire Tom Perkins after his comments comparing criticism of the wealthy and their abuse of workers to Nazism. This woman has no shame at all and she proves it by going on with another terrible insult to the intelligence (or what passes for intelligence) of her readers. She posts a photo of a woman who is in front of a GOP party HQ building with a binder that says “My Libido and I vote Pro-Choice” and then invites her followers to attack the woman’s appearance, intelligence, and even her sexuality. She tweets: “Mamas, don’t raise your daughters to grow up to be…this ==>”. As if raising a woman who is proud of her body and sexuality and wants to protect her reproductive rights is shameful. “This”…she uses the word as though she were talking about some thing. The I suppose given that she seems to view women as merely vessels to hold the sacred fetus this is probably close to the truth.

Update: Michelle Malkin is now inviting her readers to send in photos of their biracial families under the hashtag #MyRightWingBiracialFamily…she claims MSNBC was being “racist” by pointing out that many right wingers support racist policies and deny white privilege. So in retaliation…she asks right wing people with biracial families to use their children and spouses as political props. This woman is really something else. It is the height of hypocrisy to attack a political news network for “racializing” issues while at the same time turning families, FAMILIES like her own, into tools to negate and deny the real damage that racial bias and systems of oppression really do to millions of Americans, including the children of biracial families. One Malkin supporter even tweeted me to say that marrying a person of another race negates white privilege and historical oppression. So much delusion…THIS is why MSNBC and others call out right wing families for hypocrisy. Rightfully.
