  1. I did not get a “kick” out of that little film. It was disgustingly rude. Human dignity is human dignity and both sides need to learn some manners.

  2. If anyone thinks the film is rude, check out the comments.
    It’s curious how crude in a sexual way righties tend to be , and it’s always gay sex. Go figure. I suppose the old adage, “people will always attack you with what they fear most” holds some water..And they type in all caps which is very annoying.

  3. I got a kick out of it.. I especially enjoyed watching Michelle Malkin retreat in shame, she couldn’t stand her ground to defend her work.. It was like watching a 20/20 expose where they confront some scam artist and the scam artist beats a quick retreat from the view of the camera.
    What I couldn’t understand in the video is why someone would want to hide from the camera’s view their Stars & Bars lapel pin. Ain’t we proud of our aryan heritage?

  4. I think it’s great that Max Blumenthal “of the Nation” had the guts to go in there and do what he did. It was fun watching the other side get unhinged while Blumenthal kept his cool. We need more of this.

    Blog for our Future:

    (Newt Gingrich, speaking at CPAC) blamed the residents of New Orleans’ 9th Ward for a “failure of citizenship,” by being “so uneducated and so unprepared, they literally couldn’t get out of the way of a hurricane.”

    And he called for a “deep investigation” into this “failure of citizenship.”

    Here’s the full quote:

    How can you have the mess we have in New Orleans, and not have had deep investigations of the federal government, the state government, the city government, and the failure of citizenship in the Ninth Ward, where 22,000 people were so uneducated and so unprepared, they literally couldn’t get out of the way of a hurricane. (emphasis original)

    I tell you, this CPAC convention really highlights the humanity of these conservatives. And the worst part? It’s not the first time Newt’s put this in one of his speeches. Jeffrey Feldman has more…

  6. I don’t think Blumenthal was “disgustingly rude”. Confrontational, yes, but not abusive or threatening. No pies or epithets. Malkin supports detaining and interning Americans and foreign residents based on ethnicity and/or race. That photo of Manzanar is an example of what she supports made manifest. She had a lot of choices in ways to respond to Blumenthal, but she came unhinged. I was wondering how she’d deal with, say, being confronted by an older person who’d actually been in a camp. This was nearly as appropriate.
