Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, November 18, 2019

The right-wing commentator Michelle Malkin lost a long-term speaking gig Sunday due in part to her praise of a 21-year-old internet racist. The organization Young America's Foundation said it was cutting ties with Malkin and implied in a statement Sunday that it was due to her embrace of racists. "Michelle Malkin in no longer part of YAF's campus lecture program," a spokesperson for the right-wing youth organization told the Daily Beast. ... "[T]here is no room in mainstream conservatism or at YAF for holocaust deniers, white nationalists, street brawlers, or racists."

Though YAF didn't respond to TPM's request for comment, the statement appeared to address recent comments of Malkin's in a YAF-organized speech at UCLA on Thursday.

"They want me to disavow Nick Fuentes and VDARE and Peter Brimelow and Faith Goldy and Gavin McInnes and the Proud Boys and Steve King and Laura Loomer and on and on," Malkin said, naming a laundry list of right-wing provocateurs, some of whom espouse white nationalism.

There is a price to pay for the embrace of racism and other ugliness. Sometimes it takes a while, but it does happen. Looks like the invoices are starting to roll in.

"racists"

I guess they missed that whole Lee Atwater "Southern Strategy" thing...

Imagine being that politically unaware.

Fun fact: Half of you don't have to imagine!

They just realized she's not white.

She was NEVER anything but a big-mouth Asian immigrant with no expertise in anything she shrilled about. A mutton-headed pockeldywok.

The past decades of strong work in support of conservatism by Michelle Malkin is inarguable.

Malkin continually speaks for, and seriously writes in support of, conservative views; as well as of their intrinsic value within our nation.

I have followed the path of Malkin for years. I have never ever seen or heard her accused of racism. Especially since she is of a minority background herself. BUT, I have watched her often speak out or write against racism.

Now because she refuses to admonish certain people, some who may hold white supremacist support views, Malkin the Young American Foundation now exclude Malkin from being a guest lecturer on college campuses.

How stupid can these YOUNG imbeciles in this Young American Foundation be? Think about it. They are fine with oppressing Malkin's ability to speak to college students on campuses around this nation NOT because SHE is a racist, but because she refuses to admonish others for holding political views --- YET, THEY themselves practice the censorship of a fellow American's First Amendment RIGHT & Constitutional freedom.

I say BAN and ABOLOISH such a radical, extreme, un-American organization known as the Young American Foundation. They are an un-American and anti-democracy organization.

I've never much cared for Malkin but I've never seen her support bigotry.

#7: " I say BAN and ABOLOISH (sic) such a radical, extreme, un-American organization known as the Young American Foundation(sic). They are an un-American and anti-democracy organization."

From what I see they are a 501c3 organization and are not a governmental agency, so no 1st amendment applies and they can invite or disinvite any one that they choose.
I do agree that (formed in 1969 most likely to combat the anti Vietnam war protests) that they are extreme in their RW philosophy.
But If Malkin wants to speak, something she is allowed to do, she will have to find a new sponsor to pay or do it for free from a soap box. I bet there are plenty of RWNJs willing to pay for her wisdom.

You must not have seen her Twitter!

You know what's "hurting the conservative movement?" Mass, uncontrolled migration sponsored by #openbordersinc on Left & Right. Controlled opposition feeding bread & circuses to the masses to distract. Beltway Swamp purging free-thinkers & shrinking the Overton window. twitter.com

That's your example of bigotry?

Your inability to acknowledge her bigotry comes as no surprise, JeffJ.

But I'm glad to have you "on the record," as it were.

What you produced isn't an example of bigotry.

It's anti-immigrant bigotry, JeffJ.

Opposing open borders is not anti-immigrant bigotry.

Why conflate illegal immigration with legal immigration?

"Opposing open borders is not anti-immigrant bigotry."

Yes it is.

bigotry
/bi'tr"/
noun
intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself.

Why can't you read?
Neither the word "legal" nor "illegal" appears in Malkin's tweet.

It's noteworthy how you can read between the lines and see "illegal" in there...
But can't read between the lines and see the bigotry in there!

Truly a testament to seeing only the things you want to see.

She will have to cut a car from the gravy train.
