BOOK NOTES: THE MCCLOY MEMO

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 18, 2005 11:08 AM

Earlier this month, Bruce Ramsey of the Seattle Times reported on a document that he says casts doubt on my argument in In Defense of Internment that the evacuation of ethnic Japanese during World War II was based primarily on legitimate military concerns rather than racism and wartime hysteria. The document was called to Ramsey’s […]

WARD CHURCHILL AND ME

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 20, 2005 09:45 AM

Counterpunch, a widely-read left-wing political newsletter edited by Alexander Cockburn and Jeffrey St. Clair, published a rambling interview the other day with America’s nuttiest professor, Ward Churchill. It seems I’ve gotten under the blithering professor’s skin. When the interview first appeared, Churchill was quoted accusing me of “blatant plagiarism” (screenshot via Shock and Blog) and […]

THE FORGOTTEN INTERNEES OF WORLD WAR II

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 5, 2004 04:23 PM

In today’s Japan Times (scroll down to the fourth letter), former World War II internee Ebhard E. Fuhr writes about the efforts of three U.S. activists to raise awareness about Japanese-Latin Americans who were interned in the United States during World War II: While Japanese have been compensated to some extent for their internment, none […]

Maglalangadingdong this

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 3, 2004 08:57 PM

The unhinged side of the blogosphere is having a hissy fit because I jovially highlighted Teresa Heinz (Kerry)’s quote revealing that she only uses the name of her husband, failed presidential candidate John Kerry, “for politics.” To show that I am a hypocrite, they point to the fact that my books are copyrighted under my […]

WILL THE REAL SELF-HATING ASIAN-AMERICANS PLEASE STAND UP?

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 17, 2004 06:10 PM

Some critics of my most recent book have accused me of being a self-hater. Eugene Volokh deconstructed this argument here. Today, reader Richard J. Shinder points out that the accusation is based on an absurd assumption about Asian solidarity: The left in general (and particularly leftist Caucasians) would have us believe in some sort of […]

Last night’s speech at U.C. Berkeley is covered here and here. It was a remarkable event. Many thanks to the Berkeley College Republicans and those who came, and heartfelt apologies to the hundreds of supporters who could not get in to the lecture hall due to the limited number of seats.

THE WIESENTHAL CENTER TAKES ON THE INTERNMENT ALARMISTS

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 8, 2004 08:43 AM

On Sunday, the Sacramento Bee published a thought-provoking op-ed piece about homeland security in an age of terror by Abraham Cooper and Harold Brackman of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

THE END OF A REASONED DEBATE

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 8, 2004 06:25 AM

Law professor Eric Muller’s critiques of my book, which began reasonably enough in early August, have degenerated into irrationality. Muller’s descent began shortly after I pointed out copious factual errors and mischaracterizations in his posts–errors that remain uncorrected and unacknowledged to this day. A few days later, Muller signed the hysterical letter by the newly-formed […]

THE MILITARY THREAT TO THE WEST COAST DURING WORLD WAR II

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 6, 2004 05:35 AM

At WorldNetDaily, columnist Vox Day argues that “[t]here was never a genuine military threat to the West Coast” during World War II. Further, Mr. Vox argues that this is not merely a hindsight conclusion since “the facts and logistics of the Pacific situation were very well known to American military strategists at the time.” Mr. […]

“THE ‘F’ IN FBI DOES NOT REPRESENT ‘FRIENDLY’ “

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 6, 2004 04:42 AM

Shabbir Motorwala of the Institute for Islamic Education and Research in Miami is wary of FBI efforts to gather intelligence from Muslims. An excerpt: The ”F” in FBI does not represent ”friendly,” so it is amazing when FBI agents knock on your door and say that it’s a friendly visit to get some information. Whenever […]

IS THE WWII INTERNMENT UNDEBATABLE?

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 6, 2004 04:25 AM

The Seattle Times discusses the controversy on Bainbridge Island about the teaching of the World War II internment. An excerpt: At Sakai Intermediate School, named after local internee Sonoji Sakai, Principal Vander Stoep acknowledged the internment is presented with one point of view. “We do teach it as a mistake,” she said, noting that the […]

REPARATIONS FOR JAPANESE-AMERICANS

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 5, 2004 11:50 AM

My latest op-ed piece, “Reparations for internment were just a curtsy to political correctness,” appears in the San Francisco Chronicle today. An excerpt: Although it was almost universally hailed at the time, the decision was one of Reagan’s biggest blunders. In a rare capitulation to political correctness, Reagan ignored the advice of his own military […]

BOOK BUZZ

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 1, 2004 11:59 AM

The history curriculum in Bainbridge Island’s middle school dealing with the so-called Japanese-American internment has come under fire, according to this article in the Bremerton Sun. An excerpt: A special social studies program for Sakai Intermediate School sixth-graders called “Leaving Our Island” is missing context and rises to the level of “propaganda,” some parents say. […]

ARGUING IN BAD FAITH

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 25, 2004 09:39 PM

Blogger Eric Muller, believes it’s time to start “winding the back-and-forth down.” This desire is apparently shared by his co-critic, author Greg Robinson. I can see why. In yesterday’s post, I pointed out that Robinson had failed to correct more than a half-dozen factual errors that I called to his attention in my Aug. 6 […]

BOOK BUZZ

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 12, 2004 04:01 PM

A lot of buzz about the book this week. Tom Ikeda and Scott Oki attack it in a Seattle P-I op-ed. Like Greg Robinson, they say none of the information in my book is new, which is untrue. They cite the conclusions of the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians without addressing any […]
