Small point but in Britain, the first female leader of either of the two main political parties and the first female prime minister of the country was Margaret Thatcher. Now she achieved that post through sheer merit and force of personality and by her ability to lead and argue in debate.
Now the Democrats across the pond have been obsessed with countering sexism and other discriminations for years… Yet they seem to have trouble with women… Hillary in my view would have been better qualified to lead the Democrats, despite her troublesome baggage, yet the party chooses a black man (ok, he’s not “black”, he’s a white man with dark skin) over a woman. I mean hey! I thought merit ought to decide party leaders, not who’s more discriminated against.
I watched the video of Michelle Malkin being harassed, verbally abused and threatened by the moonbats outside the DNC. Shocking. I hope she is quite alright and that Alex Jones does something to be put in prison. Bastard.
It is interesting that the far left spout slogans of “peace, liberty and justice”, but what they mean is “obey, group think and tyranny”. If you disagree with Michelle Malkin, moonbats, try having a debate. I would disagree with her over the internment of Japanese citizens of the USA in the Second World War, but I haven’t read her book and would interested to do so. It is wrong to extrapolate from her book that she is arguing for racial based detention (meaning in this case that all muslims should be locked up) but I would suspect that she might argue for dentention of those who are known or suspected of Islamic terrorist activity.
The moonbats respond to an alternative point of view just as the Nazis did – with intimidation, denial of the public space and violence (the communist who tried to attack the Christian crazies who attended Recreate ’68). Notice that Alex Jones and his supporters were actually urging murder – “Kill Michelle Malkin”. If I were in her shoes, I would be pressing for his arrest on a charge of breaching the peace and incitment to murder.
This kind of incitement is dangerous and must be stopped as it poisons the political atmosphere. If far right crazies can bring guns to Denver, what is stopping a communist or a trotskyite trying to murder Michelle Malkin, Robert Spencer or David Horowitz? Just because you disagree does not make the other person a criminal.
