A new link...

There is a new link on this blog, Malkin(s)Watch. It comes more from the left than where I sit (I consider myself a center-right Republican with libertarian leanings).

Here is why I am putting it up there: Malkin has some highly questionable friends at Her columns run there one day ahead of Townhall or Creators Syndicate. She has defended a racialist. She also has defended the internment of Japanese-American citizens.

The fact is, she has shown at best, very poor judgement. At worst, she has sympathies towards attitudes that were rightfully rejected forty years ago. What is equally intolerable is that when this has been questioned, people get shouted down. For all intents and purposes, I'm being told that to be in the good graces of the conservative movement, I need to accept what I find to be clearly unacceptable.

I'm not going to. Some things are wrong. Bigotry and racism are two of them. That is why I am linking to Malkin(s)Watch, knowing that it will anger some people. But I cannot in good conscience remain silent about this cancer that has found a home among the conservative movement.
