Small point and Michelle Malkin

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.

    Republicans Talk About McCain

    Mitt Romney – on McCain and the economy:
    “I simply don’t think that the people of Florida are gonna say the nominee of our party ought to be a person who, on more than one occasion, has expressed lack of understanding of our economy at a time when the economy is the number one issue that people are talking about…”

    Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family on McCain overall:
    “I’m deeply disappointed the Republican Party seems poised to select a nominee who did not support a Constitutional amendment to protect the institution of marriage…who has little regard for freedom of speech…and has a legendary temper and often uses foul and obscene language…”

    The conservative CATO Institute on McCain and Foreign Policy:
    “John McCain on Foreign Policy: Even Worse Than Bush…
    The foreign policy that John McCain now advocates is reckless and promiscuously interventionist. If he were a university student majoring in international relations or security studies, he would deserve a resounding F for his analysis of the crucial issues that the United States has confronted over the past 14 or 15 years”

    Republican Senator Thad Cochran of Mississippi on McCain’s Temperment:
    “The thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine…He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me.”

    Former Republican Senator Bob Smith of NH on McCain and World Affair:
    “His temper would place this country at risk in international affairs, and the world perhaps in danger. In my mind, it should disqualify him.”

    Well, nhbob. Thanks for your comment, now I will disagree with you.

    Economy and McCain – that is why you have sensible people who understand these things to advise you. No President is the intellectual version of Superman.
    On the Family – I personally regard marriage/family as no business of the Constitution, which is not meant to be a social regulation document but to provide the foundations for the political system.
    Free Speech – not sure I understand – examples please?
    I disagree with the CATO Institute on many matters (but not Free Trade). We (the West) do need confront the tyrannies and to continue reordering the world towards liberal democracies. Isolationism serves no purpose in the long run and Russia must be confronted – if necessary with the threat of war.
    Well I like McCain – speaking as a Brit with no vote in the USA!
    On the other hand a temper gives him both passion and the emotional ability to ignore the more cowardly advice. Witness Reagan and his attitude to the Soviet Union, which his own State Department and intelligence services said was not going to collapse.

    There’s a small problem with your thesis about the left “spouting” slogans of peace, justice and liberty but really wanting obedience, group think and tyranny, just like right-wingers. The guy who was harrassing Malkin, Alex Jones, is just another right-winger, and so are his followers. So it’s no surprise that, like every right-winger, he responds to a challenge with Nazi tactics. It’s amazing that after all these years Nazism is still the right’s fall-back position, but both Jones and Malkin show this to be so. Meanwhile, the lefty “moonbats” came to Malkin’s aid and chased Jones off.

    Fair enough, Alex Jones has become a convert to Nazism in all but name. However the fact that he’s actually there at a lefty ‘moonbat’ festival does make one wonder about the alliance between the far left and the far right.
    The positions he advocates on “corporate interests”, the control of the media by the “Israel lobby and Zionist Interests” and the belief in conspiracy theories about US government control over the events of September 11th 2001 are mirrored by many on the far left, and not a few on the Left itself. Have a look on Harry’s Place for the disgraceful UCU, which is stuffed with left-wing antisemites.
    Also try this blog entry, http://mid-eastplus.blogspot.com/2008/03/reflections-on-nazi-state.html, which lays out what has happened on the left.
    I might also add that watching the video – the moonbats were actually chanting abuse at Michelle Malkin and did not chase off Alex Jones. I suspect Michelle just waited until he’d given up or had got bored.
    On the left and racism, here, http://www.bluetruth.net/2008/07/indymedia-visit-to-truth-optional.html.
    http://www.bluetruth.net/2008/03/help-police-zionists-are-looking-at-us.html
    Walt and Mearshimmer are beloved of the moonbats, http://www.bluetruth.net/2007/09/walt-and-mearshimer-with-friends-like.html

    The left include unreconstructed Communists whose political thesis IS the subjegation of man to ideology and tyranny. In Britain we have the Socialist Workers Party who are amongst the worst racists in the country when it comes to Jews.
