Conservative Group Fires Michelle Malkin
Over Support for Holocaust Denier

Original Article

A conservative group cut ties with right-wing columnist Michelle Malkin on Sunday over her support for an anti-Semitic internet personality, ramping up a growing conservative civil war centered on college campuses. Malkin’s firing from Young America’s Foundation, whose speakers bureau had booked Malkin for speeches across the country for the past 17 years, marks the latest battle between supporters of Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes and more establishment conservative figures. “Michelle Malkin in no longer part of YAF’s campus lecture program,” a YAF spokesman said in an email to The Daily Beast. Malkin didn’t respond to a request for comment.

The YAF has "freedom of association". Malkin can support Fuentes, but that doesn't mean that anyone has to support Malkin (or Fuentes); it doesn't mean that the YAF has to give her a platform.

Here's a working link: https://outline.com/JPghLs It's sad to see Malkin support this Fuentes character as well as these so-called "groypers". It very scary to see so much antisemitism in the world today coming from both the left (which is par for the course) but also from the right. Must there be a repeat of history? I hope and pray not.

We don’t need this infighting and we certainly do not need to be linked with anti-semites. The left will cheer while they call us bigots. Sounds like there are some wolves in sheep’s clothing in the young conservative movement. We can’t imagine Michelle Malkin supporting this. Maybe this is somehow all a misunderstanding. Time will tell. Now, more than ever the right has to be careful about who they are associating with because the left will hammer them relentlessly.

Michelle, the YAF folks don't have to give anyone that toxic a platform to spew their poison. That is how free speech works in this country. For you to support this guy under the false assumption he is some kind of victim is indeed wrong headed on your part. What is the matter with you? You and Coulter are both going completely around the bend. Previous comments are spot on. We are known by our associations, and this is one association I suggest you back off from if this is true. Denying the worst attempt at genocide in the 20th century, especially since so much footage was shot of the camps as they were liberated, is just being plumb ignorant.

As conservative groups go, YAF is pretty weak. I stopped supporting them years ago because they packed CPAC's annual meeting with young people, and that seemed deceptive to both the youth and the national audience, since CPAC had studiously avoided ever mentioning the illegal immigration incursion. I think CPAC may be finally admitting to the existence of the border problem, but if so they are very late, and have not made it the focus of their agenda, as it should be. YAF's main focus is appreciation for President Reagan. That's nice, but much more to the point now would be supporting conservative students on campuses, with information on current issues and helping to bring in speakers. I think some younger, more aggressive groups are stepping into that breach.

Michelle has gotten herself into bad company. Probably this happened because of her justified and rational concern over the ethnicity and national origins of the illegal -- and some legal -- immigrants of recent decades. It's not about their race, but the kind of religious and political environment of where they grew up and their family environment, which makes them unsuitable for the free democratic republic we are supposed to be. But it is forbidden to talk about this in polite company, even some conservative company. Important commentators like Steve Sailer, who deals with facts and statistics, for instance, is an outcast as a "racist." The troubling result of this boycott of dealing with differences between groups of people means that those who become interested in the subject can sometimes end up associating with racists and anti-Semites because there is no place to go to explore that interest inside mainstream conservatism. It may be that Michelle Malkin got interested in this guy and his group for that reason. But there is no excuse for defending him as a reasonable ally when she discovered his nasty side.

Only one political issue matters right now and everything else must be held subordinate: You either want the USA to be a constitutional republic as founded with individual liberty and limited government or you do not. The last thing we can afford to do is to diminish our strength and numbers by interjecting a purity test. Sure I'm bothered that Michelle would support a holocaust denier and I'd like her side of it, but frankly in the grand scheme of things, I don't care right now, I can't afford to care right now. She's either in our trench getting shot at by the communists or she's in their trench shooting at us.

This is strange. Having come from the DB, I have my doubts and would like to get a better understanding of what happened here. Very difficult to believe MM allowed this to happen unless, of course, it was a setup. Always keep in mind that the left is looking for any and all opportunities to drive a knife into conservatism and us especially when it thinks it can damage conservative spokespersons of stature such as Michelle Malkin. Recall the left's previous attempts to destroy Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Mike Savage, Dennis Prager, and Rush Limbaugh. Don't fall for it.

You can find her speech here: http://michellemalkin.com/2019/11/15/america-first-the-torch-is-being-passed/ In it, she lists a wide range of people and movements that have been targeted for their views opposing immigration and concludes: "No, I do not agree with every last thing they’ve said or written or published or tweeted or thought with their inside or outside voices. But I will not disavow any of them and I will not join the de-platforming witch hunters who hypocritically call themselves free speech and culture warriors." The ACLU had a historical event that is now referred to as the "Skokie Moment." Basically, the ACLU defended the right of the American Nazi party to demonstrate in a largely Jewish suburb. These Nazis were not Holocaust deniers; they were Holocaust embracers. Yet the ACLU followed its principles and supported their right to speak. You can defend someone's right to speak without embracing anything they say. Does anyone on this forum think Michelle Malkin is a holocaust denier? If not, I would take her point to be what she said: She agrees with some of the things that these groups are saying as it pertains to immigration. But not everything else. She should probably clarify that. Soon.

So let me get this straight. SPLC now is in charge of approving who is entitled to FREE SPEECH. Maybe they need to blow the dust off of that old Constitution and reread the 1st Amendment. I abhor the racist ranting from the far right just as much as I abhor the racist ranting of the leftists. These White Racists have just as much right to spew their hatred as do the Black Racists and the Hispanic Racists. America is a free country (or used to be) where all things could be debated. But we give free reign to AntiFa, Obama's pastor, Jeremiah Wright and the Hispanic group that wan't to control our Western States. If Michelle Malkin is not entitled to Free Speech then none of the leftists should enjoy that privilege.

Thank you, #20. It all sounds like a misunderstanding to me, much like the Donald Trump quote about Charlottesville was twisted to mean he supported the riff raff. Malkin is a much better and smarter person than that. As for fighting in the streets, Conservatives are able to take the high road most of the time now but there will come a time when the Leftists are allowed to raise weapons against us and the police will be looking the other way. It's already happened in liberal nests like Seattle and Portland. I don't intend to go down without drawing a lot of blood and breaking a few bones myself.

It's always about Donald Trump now. Every story and every high-profile Trump supporter is misrepresented and shaded to harm him and his candidacy.

It's amazing that even after the mainstream media has proved itself to be nothing more than a septic tank full of malodorous leftist slime, right-thinking people are ready to condemn Michelle Malkin, of all people, over a report in the Daily Beast. Conservatives will never have a more principled, more fearless warrior on their side than MM. She has been through the flames and taken it right to the lefties year after year. She's one of the greats. To borrow from Rush: do not doubt her.

It seems many conservatives are just as knee jerk in their reactions as liberals. Always consider the source, and verify independently, when a divisive story about conservatives is put out there by a source known to lean left. The fact that so many are unwilling to take remarks in context is disturbing and indicative that the MSM manipulation is still working.

If you dare to disagree with anyone of Hebrew heritage, you’re immediately considered a racist anti-Semitic bigot Nazi cookie monster. OK ... got it. Fuentes dared to ask (as many young people have done) about the logistics of the “six million” number that emanated from testimony at the Nuremberg Trials. How dare he ask for proof (which may be obnoxious simply because the horrors don’t require a specific number) when the chosen will crucify you? I’m sure that MM won’t lose any sleep that some sanctimonious keyboard warriors have turned there back on her. Good riddance.

I am so sick of this "guilt by association" garbage that gets thrown around simply if one says anything positive about some fallible person who may have some off views about some issues. As others said, she may agree with the guy about something he said about immigration, but that doesn't mean she agrees with his Holocaust denial!! Look how the Left falsely associated (and continues to smear) President Trump with white supremacists and neo-nazis because he was talking nice about OTHER people who innocently attended a rally put together by racists who misled the public about their sponsorship and intentions.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s suggestion that President Trump emulate President Nixon and resign is, in our opinion, a shocking démarche unworthy of her office. And a glimpse into the predicament of the Democrats, who, though they began beating the drums for impeachment more than three years ago, still don’t seem to know what charges to lay against the president. Mrs. Pelosi hauled out Nixon in her interview on the Columbia Broadcasting System, where Margaret Brennan asked the speaker whether the President would get, “as he says,” to “confront his accuser.” The question was met with a slippery evasion that began with Mrs. Pelosi snapping, “What do you mean

State Attorney General Letitia James was quite proud of herself for winning a $2 million judgment against President Trump for misusing his Trump Foundation charity. But surely the Rev. Al Sharpton’s nonprofit merits similar scrutiny. As The Post’s Melissa Klein and Georgett Roberts reported last weekend, Sharpton sucked in more than $1 million last year from his National Action Network charity: salary of $324,000, a $160,000 bonus and $563,000 in “other compensation” — which NAN says it owed him for a stretch from 2004 to 2017 when it supposedly underpaid him. NAN claims it hired an executive-compensation firm that found it shorted him $1.25 million over those years.

The NPV would change how the Electoral College operates without amending the Constitution. It pledges a state's Electoral College votes to the candidate receiving the most votes nationwide in a presidential election. The Colorado political committee Yes on National Popular Vote has collected just under $750,000 since its creation in late July.

Ford sent an envoy to Modena, Italy, to hash out a deal with Enzo Ferrari.

In the 50 US counties, there was a nine percent increase in Republican votes from 2012 to 2016 and those with the lowest fear and anxiety showed a shift of only 2 percent. Similar findings were uncovered in the 50 UK districts with the highest levels of fear and anxiety

Nunes corrected himself and repeated the statement, which followed questions regarding who Vindman had spoken with about Trump's phone call.

While intoning pious flapdoodle about his sacred duty to impeach and remove President Trump from office, it seems that God or else Eric Swalwell's digestive system had other plans for him. He let 'er rip, and it wasn't subtle. No one heard a thing he said either before or after that impressive digestive demonstration.

Swalwell seems to have done it with little effort to hold it in, which raises questions for the ace investigative reporters
