How did all these “tea protestors” get off work on a Wednesday afternoon to go and protest?
Malkin’s latest column is entitled ‘You might be a “radicalized rightwing extremist” if…’ Ok – I’ll bite. Here’s my top 5
- 5. You might be a radicalized rightwing extremist if:
- 4. You create false evidence to lie a nation into war.
- 3. You champion for war without acknoledging the true costs.
- 2. You stalk a handicap child for your own political gain
And finally – the number one reason you might be a radicalized right wing extremist
- You are scared of a report on radicalized right wing extremists

Larry Johnson’s blog, No Quarter, never ceases to amaze me. Here is one of his writers claims today:
In a brilliant rebuttal to coordinated attacks from the far left, this Wall Street Journal op-ed, “Tax Day Becomes Protest Day - How the tea parties could change American politics.” (related stories) nails the true genesis of today’s protests:
The author of this “brilliant rebuttal”? Glenn Harlan Reynolds. Yeah – that Glenn Reynolds, of InstaPundit fame, who helped put this whole thing together. But forget facts, let’s just try to sell it as some independent thinker. I bet they would have bought a brilliant op-ed rebutting claims that Bush lied us into war, even if the op-ed was written by Donald Rumsfeld.
And its in the form of a convicted congressman:
- Former Ohio congressman Bob Ney has started a new talk radio show, eight months after finishing his sentence in a public corruption scandal.
Ney's show debuted Monday afternoon on WVLY-AM 1370, which serves eastern Ohio and West Virginia. He discussed the pirate hostage crisis, the economy and the Obamas' new dog.
In a video posted on the station's Web site, Ney says his radio show is a work in progress and that he expects some negative feedback from listeners because of his conviction in a congressional bribery case.
The six-term Republican from Heath in central Ohio resigned after acknowledging in a 2006 plea that he traded political favors for gifts and campaign donations arranged by lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his associates.
big club house to the airwaves. That must mean only one thing. Next stop – FOX news!
Why, one wonders, would Michelle Malkin read a DHS report on fringe, far-right extremism that could lead to violence or Oklahoma-style domestic terrorism and think ... they're talking about her?
Rightwing nut-jobs have been the number one purveyor of domestic terrorism in this country. Rather it be the abortion clinic bombers or Timothy McVeigh, there is no arguing that the right will take to violence much quicker than the left.
The actions of the right is also messing with operations in our capital:
Local reports indicate that the practice of mailing actual tea bags to legislators has repeatedly raised security concerns, and sometimes forced the evacuation of congressional offices in anthrax-like scares.
Brian Sperry, a spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service, told the Salt Lake (Utah) Tribune that tea bags in the mail "cause us some concern. ... They could pose a problem if the tea bag is mailed in a regular envelope instead of a padded bag."
These tea bags are coming from the same party that spawned Chad Castagana, the right wing follower of people like Malkin and Coulter who resorted to sending fake anthrax letters to notable liberals. Of course their only mention of him was to deny any involvement.
