To the left of Stalin

A local socialist blog, what would be considered "moderate" locally, but downright trotskyite in it's intolerance of dissension, has decided that Michelle Malkin crossed a line by giving out information contained in a public press-release, and that people not calling for her death or imprisonment are hypocrites if they believe that calling for someone's death or imprisonment is a bad thing. Apparently the "students against the war" (really just against us winning it) press team feels that they shouldn't hear from people who disagree with their bullying tactics. it's a lot more complicated, but to sum up.

lefties bully military recruitiers, brag about it, ask people to cheer them on.

someone prints the bragging on a website including email address where much congratulating is expected.

Michelle Malkin links to the website, says 'haha'.

some non-lefties say mean things about the bullies instead of cheering them on.

lefties get mad and threaten Michelle Malkin for spoiling their fun, encourage each other to say mean things about her and her family.

other non-lefties tell the lefties to grow up.

pol pot wannabe tells other non-lefties that bullying people in person is fine, but lame email insults cross the line and shouldn't be tolerated, unless they're from his website or dailykos.

Goe, cause it's just so absurd.

Your crappy novels is right. Thanks for telling us.

Regarding how this all started, Michelle Malkin went to a cached page, took a screenshot, and posted the image on her site because didn't like the politics of the people. It's not her place to justify the disclosing of this information because she deemed that they were terrorizing people. That's an issue for the Santa Cruz police department to deal with, not her own brand of vigilante justice.

As for her own personal details - Malkin included that on her own e-mail list and that's how it went public. She launched her personal information about herself BY herself.

And the anti-racist One People's Project website promptly released her new details.

Someone took it a step further and used live.windows.com and yahoo maps to do a Graphic.

Payback's a bitch eh' Malkin?

Her refusal to remove these kids contact information was not from conviction, but from revenue. Every journalist in the world knows that contact information on a press release is for journalists to call for more information or interviews, not to be published (or even pointed out) in the publication itself. If she were any kind of ethical person she would have pulled the information when asked.

If she were something resembling a human being with "feelings", she would not have republished the information once the students themselves removed it. Michelle is a vicious, vindictive, venomous egoist with no discernible ethics nor even a shred of human decency. If she wants to be The Minority Woman Who Believes Minorities and Women Suck, that's her right. But she should at least have the integrity to acknowledge that she has done wrong and to stop compounding the wrong. And she should not give us that disingenuous crap about how she doesn't condone death threats and nobody should misuse her posting and reposting of personal information.

The people who chased the recruiters off campus gave out their info on purpose, so that people could contact them. Malkin has been discouraging the kind of threats that others have been encouraging towards her. Which you would have known had you actually bothered to read Malkin's posts instead of just inanely posting about how people who think for themselves instead of repeating socialist mantras are evil.

Goe, noting that Malkin continues to expose the intolerance of leftists.

for anyone who is curious, themole, according to sitemeter, spent less than one minute and seventeen seconds reading my site before posting their comments, which is probably far less time than it actually took them to regurgitate the same bullshit i was pointing out the stupidity of.

Goe, snickering.
