I’m sorry, but I can no longer tolerate the presence of Michelle Malkin on the Factor. I’ve never done this before, but from now on, when Malkin comes on – the Factor goes off. I am fed up with her canards, her bigotry, and her associations with people like Peter Brimelow of Vdare, Steve Sailer, etc. Even though you can no longer directly link to her columns on Vdare, she was still writing for them as of the 21st. The SPLC has listed Vdare, Brimelow, Sailer, etc. as racist with some very questionable white supremacist associates, and that is putting it politely.
The Pink Flamingo
P. S. Geraldo is right!
I don’t like doing things like this, but from now on when Malkin goes on O’Reilly, the show goes off, the channel turned. I’d rather watch a rerun of Law & Order on USA rather than watch more of her mis-representations, racism, and spewing of Tanton based canards. Her constant harping on the Newark murders is over the top. She did not care about this story until she discovered the perp was illegal. Then we’ve heard nothing else from her. I’m tired of it. I’m tired of the anti-Hispanic bias. I’m tired of this constant game of degrading a person because they are “liberal”. Sometimes liberals are perfectly nice, intellectually honest people and sometimes conservatives are the scum of the earth.
Someone needs to stand up and say I am fed up and have had it. That’s it. No more. No more canards, no more prevarications, no more deriding, degrading, and promoting hate against people she doesn’t like. What she is doing to MY FRIEND Lindsey Graham is deplorable. She has hundreds of followers who take her every cue, and follow her every word – even when the words aren’t reliable or fair, balanced, or accurate. What she has done to Geraldo is disgusting.
To paraphrase umpteen Wyatt Earp movies, “IT ALL ENDS, NOW!”
There is a time when a person must do what is right. I don’t like going after people and taking them out. I’ve done it when it when necessary. Well, now it is necessary. Right is right. Wrong is wrong. Hanging out with people like Peter Brimelow, Steve Sailer, and other white supremacists and getting away with it is fine – if you are one of them. If you are presenting yourself as a “born again Christian” with family values, conservative, patriotic, etc, it’s another thing. Vdare is one of the most openly racist fronts on the web. Unlinking from Vdare isn’t going to do. Renouncing everyone associated with it, and renouncing the racist work done in the past is a start. Problem is, I don’t think it’s going to happen.
Tonight’s “taking points” from Michelle Malkin, discussing leftists, anti-Americans, and open borders people was over the top. She discusses the “Hate” from the “Left” but fails to mention her connection with Vdare. As of August 21, 2007 Malkin was still writing for Vdare, but you cannot link directly to her articles from the ‘people pages’. You must google Vdare Malkin to come up with the link. Over a year ago I wrote: a piece about Malkin that was considered a little over the top at the time.
Oricus has a damning posting about Malkin, her sources, and the way she handles the news. It is also an expose on book praising interment camps during WWII.
On Sept 26, 2004 Malkin had the nerve to write a column entitled “Steve Sailer Vindicated”
What vindicated Sailer, according to Malkin? Sailer is discussing Hispanic IQs! Talk about hate! I know, the idea was about the numbers of Hispanics who were going to vote, but this is was also
on the page when she linked to it. In many ways it looked like the whole idea was the fact that Hispanics weren’t bright enough to vote.
“…Best estimate yet of white-Hispanic IQ gap [Steve Sailer] – 09/22/04
Here’s the best estimate I’ve yet seen: A 2001 meta-analysis of 39 studies covering a total 5,696,519 individuals in America (aged 14 and above) came up with an overall difference of 0.72 standard deviations in g (the “general factor” in cognitive ability) between “Anglo” whites and Hispanics. The 95% confidence range of the studies ran from .60 to .88 standard deviations, so there’s not a huge amount of disagreement among the studies.
One standard deviation equals 15 IQ points, so that’s a gap of 10.8 IQ points, or an IQ of 89 on the Lynn-Vanhanen scale where white Americans equal 100. That would imply the average Hispanic would fall at the 24th percentile of the white IQ distribution. This inequality gets worse at higher IQs Assuming a normal distribution, 4.8% of whites would fall above 125 IQ versus only 0.9% of Hispanics, which explains why Hispanics are given ethnic preferences in prestige college admissions and in the most difficult jobs.
In contrast, 105 studies of 6,246,729 individuals found an overall white-black gap of 1.10 standard deviations. So, the white-Hispanic gap appears to be about 65% as large as the notoriously depressing white-black gap. (Warning: this 65% number does not come from a perfect apples to apples comparison because more studies are used in calculating the white-black difference than the white-Hispanic difference.)

Then there is Peter Brimelow, Malkin’s editor at Vdare. The SPLC did a whole profile on him.
One essay complains about how the government encourages “the garbage of Africa” to come to the United States. The same writer says once the “Mexican invasion” engulfs the country, “high teenage birthrates, poverty, ignorance and disease will be what remains.”
Another says that Hispanics have a “significantly higher level of social pathology than American whites. … In other words, some immigrants are better than others.” Yet another complains that a Jewish immigrant rights group is helping “African Muslim refugees” come to America.
Brimelow’s site carries archives of columns from men like Sam Francis, who is the editor of the newspaper of the white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens, a group whose Web page recently described blacks as “a retrograde species of humanity.”
It has run articles by Jared Taylor, the editor of the white supremacist American Renaissance magazine, which specializes in dubious race and IQ studies and eugenics, the “science” of “race betterment” through selective breeding.
Recently, VDARE has even begun to publish the writings of Kevin MacDonald, a psychology professor at California State-Long Beach. MacDonald accuses Jews of “dominating” the “movement to change the ethnic balance of the United States by allowing mass, non-traditional [i.e., non-white] immigration.”
He writes that Jews, believing “the masses ha[ve] to be deceived,” frame their appeals in universalistic language. But behind that are “the Jewish agendas” of the deceivers. MacDonald also mentions “the famously heavy Jewish role” in television news….”
a July 15 Rocky Mountain News investigative article described VDARE.com as a “white nationalist Web site.” Peter Brimelow, who operates the site through his nonprofit organization, the Center for American Unity, responded in an op-ed in the Rocky Mountain News, saying that “the merest glance [at VDARE.com] would show that we are not ‘white nationalist.’ ” Brimelow added, “We also publish on VDARE.com a few writers — for example, Jared Taylor — whom I would regard as ‘white nationalist,’ in the sense that they aim to defend the interests of American whites.” Similarly, as Media Matters has noted, Brimelow asserted in response to a letter to VDARE.com that “VDARE.COM is obviously not a ‘White Supremacist’ site, if for no other reason than that it publishes non-whites. We do publish writers who could fairly be described as ‘white nationalists,’ in that they explicitly defend the interests of American whites.” According to an article by Brimelow on the website, VDARE is named for Virginia Dare, the first child of English descent born in the New World in the 16th century….”
he would denounce Michelle Malkin’s
racist writings and associates
– I hope.
