The Only People Whining About Naming Names Are Bigots


When it comes to hatemongerers, there are usually two options: Ignore them (and refuse to give them more attention), or confront them head on. Generally we opt to ignore them, though sometimes we go for secret Option No. 3: Reprint their outright lies and misinformation and expose them as charlatans — and then LOL about it. But when it comes to bigot Michelle Malkin, who traffics in rage, we’re gonna waste a few words.

Malkin, whose anti-gay sentiments are well-documented, makes her living by taunting others to engage her. Sometimes it works! Like when she defends anti-gay sentiments with falsified claims of privacy invasions.

“Following in the footsteps of the anti-Prop. 8 mafia, two gay activist groups have announced plans to ‘out’ Washington state citizens who sign petitions to oppose expanding same-sex partnership laws,” writes Malkin about something we covered earlier. “Now, imagine the uproar if the roles were reversed and anti-gay marriage activists were publicizing the names of petitioners supporting same-sex partnership expansion laws. But when they do it, they’re not creating a ‘climate of hate.’ They’re just exercising their free speech.”

Actually, we’re perfectly fine with you publishing the names of same-sex marriage supporters! In fact, help us get the word out, won’t you? Slap down our names and faces in whatever ledger you’re creating, right next to the heading “Supports Equality for All” (you know, for when history rears its ugly head and opponents are exposed as bigots).

And then please add our contact information and circulate a copy to every one of us so we can better mobilize. Thanks, Michelle!

      Well put. The idea that history will view same-sex marriage opponents as bigots is gaining significant traction.

      Playing up the history angle, in my view, is the most effective way to get opponents to reconsider their beliefs. They may dismiss the notion their ideas are bigoted, but keep repeating the message, and their resistance to the truth will eventually wear down.

      Actually, Ms. Malkin, there’s this thingy on the internets called “Facebook”. There are numerous marriage equality groups in Facebook and those groups show the names of thousands of our fellow citizens who support marriage equality. Some of the people in the group aren’t our fellow citizens because people throughout the WORLD support marriage equality.

      I know your malnourished brain has a hard time wrapping itself around hard words like “equality” and “world”. I suggest you begin to feed your brain some things called “facts”. It may help your brain to understand things better.

      Hate mongers have been printing homosexuals names in the paper to out, embarass and try to destroy there lives since the 50’s. It is about time that the tables can be turned a little.

      I want the cool ’92 Michelle back. That was probably before talk radio conservatism infected her brain.

      Bachmann vs. Malkin. I don’t know, on the subject of overall inanity and bluster, it’s a toss-up.

      There is NOTHING more offensive to a bigot than being called a bigot.

      @Timothy: That’s because bigots always believe they’re not bigots!
