Michelle Malkin Bio
From One People's Project:
A/K/A:Michelle Maglalang (maiden name)
Get to know this one because it won't be long before she takes up the Ann Coulter/Pat Buchanan mantle as one of the most rabid hatemongers in the country today. Of course, that will also make her a laughing stock as well. The jokes should start coming soon enough, because as you can see from her picture, she is not exactly someone who one would think would have articles appearing in VDARE, a anti-immigration, white nationalist website. She actually has that kind of dirt on her, however. It never ceases to amaze us how many times we keep running into these idiots of color who want to pretend that they can be just as racist towards everyone as their white racist comrades, but we hope they are not stupid enough to think that we will extend any kind of respect to them.
A nationally known journalist, Michelle Malkin has appeared on national news programs like NBC Nightly News, The Lehrer Report, The McLaughlin Group, 20/20, and Faux News. Born in Philidelphia, she is the daughter of Filipino immigrants that were in her words, "rock-ribbed Reagan Republicans." In 1992, she graduated from Oberlin College (which was once an underground railroad location), and is currently living in Montgomery County, Maryland with her white, Jewish husband Jesse and two children in an upper middle class suburban neighborhood in Montgomery County, Maryland. We make these points because she has written many articles and commentaries on minority issues in America - none of them favorable to minorities or their presence in America. Can you say, "confused?"
It gets better. Oberlin College, known for its progressive campus was where she decided to be politically active - but it seems like it was as a form of rebellion. Apparently it was all that concern for people of color rising up and being a intergral part of this society that made her mad, as this excerpt from a CSPAN transcript shows:
MALKIN: Well, I was editor of my high school newspaper, but not really politically energized yet. That happened at Oberlin. And that's where I first really encountered the vicious response you can get when you stand up to a political orthodoxy. It's an extremely liberal campus. And even if -- even if you tread very lightly on political sacred cows, there was a huge negative response, especially from somebody who was a minority, standing up and saying, Well, all these self-appointed minority groups in campus don't speak for me.Okay, having an adversity towards racial hustlers, fine. Hooking up with white racial hustlers and adopting their viewpoints does not exactly solve the problem though. Read her writings and viewpoints, and take a look at the organizations she affiliates with, and you will see a racist who literally trashes on every non-white race in America.
And I think that's a theme that I've carried throughout my journalism career, and it's certainly something that's central to this book because I talk about -- in a section of the book, I talk about hate crime howlers, and these are a number of these ethnic grievance groups and pro-illegal-alien lobbying groups who -- you know, who claim to speak for all minorities and immigrants and their families in this country, with an agenda of keeping our borders as loose and open as possible. And I certainly don't believe in that, and I know there are so many naturalized Americans and their families who embrace the rule of law, and that includes immigration laws. And we don't accept that we ought to maintain a state of immigration anarchy in a post-September 11 world.
And somebody needs to stand up to all of those groups and say, No, this is not right. It's not right, first of all, to invite so many millions of illegal line-jumpers into the country ahead of all the millions of people around the world who are waiting to do it the right way. That's just a matter of fairness. But also, it's now, more than ever, a matter of life and death. You cannot have open borders and win a war on terror at the same time. It's incompatible.
BRIAN LAMB: Were you controversial at Oberlin because of your stance?
MALKIN: Well, I really just came into being as a political journalist towards the end of my campus experience, and it was really after I had left and come to D.C. and started, you know, writing on my own and -- I mean, it was really more social conservatism than economic conservatism that I started with my -- with my column-writing. So no, I would say I was not, you know, a huge lightning rod until the -- you know, the end of my career -- I mean, end of my tenure at Oberlin.
The type of news and political organizations she works for are typically extreme right-wing organizations who preach racism, xenophobia, and white superiority. Among the worst racist right-wing organizations she works for are the National Review, the aforementioned VDARE, and Townhall. In countless articles written for them, Michelle typically bashes and encourages racism against Muslims, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and especially immigrants.
Her first major publication was a book she wrote, called, Invasion: How America Still Welcomes Terrorists Criminals & Other Foreign Menaces to Our Shores, first published in 2002. Attempting to copy Peter Brimelow's hateful bashing of immigrants when he wrote Alien Nation several years earlier, Malkin produces similar hate-mongering garbage against immigrants. Like Alien Nation, Malkin book Invasion is just another xenophobic, right-wing racist propaganda, filled with lies, bogus statistics, fallacies of logic, and references to right-wing racists and organizations.
Being an immigrant basher, she naturally attempts to associate all immigrants to the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, using illogical arguments to label all immigrants as terrorists and to justify ending immigration. Filled with more hateful diatribe, she concludes immigration must end, a wall must be built between America and Mexico, and border patrol must be increased. Being illogical and dimwitted, she trashes on every U.S. agency responsible for border patrol as incompetent, then she declares we must increase our border patrol by 50,000 - trained by the same agency she calls incompetent! A statement in the book summarizing her views on immigration, "It's time that we give immigrants to this country a swift kick to the seats of their pants and show them the exit door."
Immigrant bashing is only the tip of the iceberg of her racism. Her countless writings trashing on minorities reveal Malkin's hateful side, and if you didn't see her picture, you would think she's a white-supremacist racist.
Her most hateful writings come from VDARE, however. She trashes on Blacks, publishing her filtered hate crimes. She likes to publish marginal hate crime stories of blacks attacking whites, and hate crime hoaxes, but she deliberately omits the reality of hate crimes, that Blacks are the most frequent victims of hate crimes. When the Washington D.C. beltway sniper was active in 2002, Malkin openly attacked police chief Charles Moose, a Black man, as incompetent and greedy, although she had no credible evidence. It turned out to be a personal attack based on her racist views and references to right-wing racists. When the sniper was caught by Charles Moose and the Montgomery County, Maryland police department, she continued trashing on Mr. Moose anyway, largely based on her brainwashed racism against Blacks.
Now you know that with this, she has to have some diatribe in her resume against hip-hop. Indeed, she got a lot of play on Faux News Channel (and nowhere else, mind you) about a column that appeared in June 2004 that attacked the Worchester, Mass. school system for including on their summer reading list for children "The Rose That Grew From Concrete" by Tupac Shakur. The column was simply a juvenile diatribe against Tupac and his poems, which she referred to as "tripe" and ridiculing the late rapper's penchant for using numbers in place of words in some areas, a common form of artistic expression, but a sign of stupidity to Malkin. She particularly aimed not only at Tupac, but also at the school board for even considering him, and in doing so leveled a shot at multiculturalism. "The Western literary canon has been flushed down the cultural toilet in favor of shallow ramblings by celebrity thugs whose thoughts are best left on bathroom walls," she wrote. "As 2Pac might have responded: 3 Cheers 4 Diversity."
For the next week we were treated to this kind of vitriol and more from Ms. Malkin as she did the rounds on the Faux News Channel. When she appeared on former US Rep. John Kasich's program on July 3, 2004, it was a different story. She ditched the vitriol and the hatemongering (but still managed to take a quick shot a multiculturalism), and made an even-tempered case against the decision to include not only Tupac's book, but also folk singer Jewel's book of poems that was published a few years ago. Jewel was never brought up until this point, not even being noted in the original column. When she was mentioned, it was only as a footnote. The difference? Malkin appeared on the program with a black community leader who was there as a counterpoint and probably not too familiar with Malkin's hate routine.
Michelle Malkin loves to trash on Muslims as well. After the 9-11 attacks, she was swift to trash on Muslims, attempting to associate all Muslims to that event. Like a instigative hate-monger, she will find any news event as an excuse to trash on all Muslims (or any non-white race). When the media revealed the two estranged Washington D.C. beltway snipers were Muslim, she naturally took the opportunity to associate all Muslims to the two snipers, to carry out her racist propaganda.
Finally, although an Asian American herself, she sure doesn't have any love for her own race, either. Malkin has written a few times on Asian American issues, but see writes more like a white supremacist. When the Pearl Harbor movie by Disney came out in 2001, some Asian American civil rights group were concerned about possible anti-Japanese/Asian sentiment which may erupt. Malkin as usual attacks any attempt to relieve racism and hatred. No Michelle, the Asian American groups were not trying to rewrite or suppress American history. They, as most Asian Americans, were concerned about possible racism that may emerge, and finding ways to move above such racism, rather than letting the racism repeat itself. Of course, like how hate-mongers like Malkin trash and lie about all immigrants and Muslims being connected to the 9-11 attacks, it doesn't come as a surprise she would play a similar tactic against Asian Americans.
During the Abercrombie Fitch incident in 2001, where A&F sold racist shirts with anti-Asian caricatures and later pulled off the shelf after a massive protest by the Asian American community, Malkin immediately attacked the Asian American protesters as greedy money-grubbers and downplayed the whole incident. A year later, when A&F was facing a major civil rights lawsuit for discriminating against Asians, Blacks, and Hispanics in the employment process, she makes no mention of this. Of course, any major news stories where minorities may advance and become more equal in America is unacceptable for racists like Michelle Malkin.
Michelle Malkin is indeed a pathological racist who doesn't seem to know her own color. Surely many white supremacist and right-wing groups have use for her outside appearance, although her inside is filled with hatred and racism. Some have suggested her husband has been somewhat of an influence with the anti-Arab sentiments plus mad support for the so-called "War on Terror" being a constant thread (Jesse Malkin works for the RAND Corporation, which has been called out as war profiteers). Like Black sellout racists like Ezola Foster and Star Parker, the white supremacist groups have found a sellout to recruit to the Asian community and to spread their racism, and that is Michelle Malkin. Oh, one more thing. She has a new book out now: In Defense of Internment: The Case for "Racial Profiling". As we did not read the book yet, we will hold back an opinion, but a review of the book says that it "offers a ringing justification for the most reviled wartime policies in American history: the evacuation, relocation, and internment of people of Japanese descent during World War II. It also defends racial, ethnic, religious, and nationality profiling as effective defensive measures in today's War on Terror."
Would someone tell this idiot that if anything she believes in was to be put into wide practice, she would suffer the same fate as the rest of us dark-skinned folks?
