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 […]

At WorldNetDaily, columnist Vox Day argues that “[t]here was never a genuine military threat to the West Coast” during World War II.

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 […]

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.
