Adventures in liberal tolerance, part 999,901

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 29, 2011 02:39 PM

Anti-Obama signs in New Orleans — on private property — have set off a frenzy of prog protests against free speech. Former and current politicians have “met” with the property owner as mobs gather near the offender’s home. Local city council members are plotting ways to punish the homeowner and squelch his speech: There are […]

Tea Party Must Tone Down Violent Rhetoric (Also, Lefty Charged for Threatening to Kill Wisconsin GOPers)

By Doug Powers  •  April 1, 2011 11:32 AM

**Written by Doug Powers Will the hard left sentence her to three months at HW & Bubba’s Institute for Civil Discourse for extensive “new civility” re-education, or have a parade in her honor? That was just a rhetorical question, by the way. From the Journal-Sentinel: Madison — A 26-year-old woman was charged Thursday with two […]

Lee Harvey Who?

**Written by Doug Powers From Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s Huffington Post column about JFK’s assassination: Jack had received myriad warnings against visiting the right-wing Texas city. Indeed, there had been a sense of foreboding even within our family as he and Aunt Jackie prepared for the trip. Jack made an unscheduled trip to Cape Cod […]

The progressive “climate of hate:” An illustrated primer, 2000-2010

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 10, 2011 03:19 AM

The Tucson massacre ghouls who are now trying to criminalize conservatism have forced our hand. They need to be reminded. You need to be reminded. Confront them. Don’t be cowed into silence. And don’t let the media whitewash the sins of the hypocritical Left in their naked attempt to suppress the law-abiding, constitutionally-protected, peaceful, vigorous […]

How the Left fakes the hate: A primer

By Michelle Malkin  •  March 26, 2010 10:40 AM

I’m still on semi-vacation, but the Left never takes a break from falsely accusing the Right of fomenting hatred and violence through political speech. The MSM never takes a break from whitewashing leftist intolerance, death threats, and extremism — and engaging in selective reporting (or rather, non-reporting) of the long history of leftists’ manufacturing of […]

Selective outrage of the MSM

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 13, 2009 07:20 AM

Bill Sammon points out what I reported on at length in my “Assassination Chic” chapter of Unhinged and in years of my Unhinged blog archives: Journalists don’t care about nutballs and extremely extreme extremists unless they can be used to embarrass conservatives. As it has always been: News outlets that are focusing on the incendiary […]

How quickly they forget

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 4, 2009 09:44 AM

Obama-bots are in a tizzy over a silly poster of Dear Leader as The Joker. The BDS-infected Left may have wiped the violent imagery and assassination fascination targeting the president from their memories. I haven’t: *** Related: The Anchoress notes the race-card players and celebrates free speech, Hillary-style: As Hillary Clinton famously yelled, “I am […]

Gag-worthy: Bipartisan indignance over “Barack the Magic Negro” parody

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 29, 2008 01:16 PM

Oh, give me a super-sized break. Leftie ’60s leftover/songwriter Peter Yarrow at the Huffington Post fumes over the “Barack the Magic Negro” parody that has RNC candidate Chip Saltsman in hot water. All of sudden — after eight years of “F**k Bush” bumper stickers and “Kill Bush” assassination chic and Bush-or-Chimp parodies — the left […]

Tons of readers have sent word that the reunited rap-rock band Rage Against the Machine advocated at the Coachella music festival this weekend that the Bush administration be “shot” like Nazi war criminals. Here’s the video: Partial transcript via Thomas Galvin: And this current administration is no exception. It should be hung and tried and […]

Assassination-mania in Indonesia

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 19, 2006 10:40 AM

The jihadis are rolling out the welcome mat in Indonesia. (Hat tip: Shawn Wasson, who has more Bush-deranged photos) Reuters AP reports: Thousands wound through the streets of Indonesia’s capital and gathered at a grand mosque Sunday to protest President Bush’s upcoming visit to the world’s most populous Muslim nation, some chanting “War criminal” and […]

“Death of a President:” Box-office bomb

Bush Derangement Syndrome fizzles in movie theaters: The provocative film “Death of a President,” which imagines the assassination of George W. Bush, bombed at the North American box office with a meager $282,000 grossed from 143 theaters in its first weekend.

Assassination chic

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 31, 2006 10:53 AM

The penultimate chapter of my book Unhinged was titled “Assassination chic.” I explored the popular genre of “Kill Bush” literature, talk radio rhetoric, and art on the Left devoted to fantasies about murdering President Bush and Republicans, including: — Sarah Vowell’s best-selling murder travelogue of assassinated Republican presidents, Assassination Vacation; — Nicholson Baker’s Checkpoint, a […]

What does the American left have to say?

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 5, 2006 10:23 AM

I have received a smattering of e-mails from liberals who are siding with Denmark and the European newspaper editors in the Cartoon Jihad. (See, for example, the liberal blogger at Deep Thought.) For the most part, however, the American Left has had nothing to say about the escalating war. Instead, the Bush-deranged faction spent yesterday […]
