In another attempt to sucker-punch people into her frame of mind, the ever-belligerent Michelle Malkin links to a video in a recent post on her blog. Malkin, still under the delusion of some kind of journalistic integrity, posted another article with no content of her own (only 33 words of the over 300-word article isn’t copy-pasted material).
She gives us a link to a video of the beheading of a Russian hostage with only a “propagandist” warning: “Only watch if you are prepared to look the evils of jihad in the eye” and wonders where the outrage is. Now just who's on a Jihad here?
Although I find offensive what these Muslims do to hostages, as would any civilised person, I find it offensive that the video was reposted; as a link, but reposted anyway. The line between a link and embedding is pretty thin.
If Malkin isn't posting student war protesters' home and electronic coordinates, she's posting videos (or links to videos) of someone getting beheaded. I wonder if anyone would be outraged had this been an American's decapitation depicted on video. But it's just some Russian dude; no harm done to the war effort or troop morale.
Yup! Malkin really shines as a human being, using the graphic video of the decapitation of another human being for her personal gain. Then she protests the Mainstream Media for using these very tactics, which is do anything to drive the mission plan (i.e. crusade) to success, although I doubt even Fox News would stoop so low and show such graphic material to drive their propaganda machine.
I don't think there's a point of no return in Malkin's twisted mind where decency ends and incivility begins in her crusade to convert people to her extreme rightwing agenda. Not to mention she’s probably exasperated to be considered Coulter’s understudy and seems to be upping the sensationalism and cheap red and yellow tabloid tactics to get more attention.
She’s quickly becoming a media buffoon. When Bill O’Reilly takes you to school on air for being off your rocker, it’s because you’ve really gone where no one should go. Thanks for another tasteless spectacle of your obsession, which I believe hurts America more than any left-wing anti-war campaign ever could. And that's my outrage.
