It’s not about the “children.” It’s not about “fairness.” It’s about agitation and community organizing and ginning up hatred against political enemies. For the union radicals in Wisconsin, as I reported in my column on Friday, those enemies include the Koch brothers, the Tea Party movement, minority conservatives, female Republicans, independent citizen journalists…and Fox News.

Stop the hate campaign against law-abiding American businesses

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 2, 2011 04:03 AM

My column today spotlights the left-wing/New York Times alliance against Chick-Fil-A. Anti-corporate/anti-Christian blogs + MSM advocacy journalism = job-sabotaging smear machine.

The SEIU has been waging open-borders attacks on restaurant chain Chipotle simply because the company complied […]
