Leftist rhetoric is all the rage
Kansas City Star ^ | Dec. 02, 2005 | Michelle Malkin

Liberal anger

Janeane Garofalo, left-wing actress-turned-Air America radio host, is a miserable woman.

Last week before the holidays, she turned up on cable TV. No, not to count her blessings — but to rant against conservative journalist Bob Novak, author Ann Coulter and the Fox News Channel. She didn’t have anything better to do for Thanksgiving?

Accessorized by a permanent scowl (hard to believe she was once considered a comedienne), Garofalo accused conservatives of having “an anger management problem.” Without a trace of irony, the frowning Garofalo griped about “right-wing partisan hacks” who “are always on the verge of punching somebody or always behave as if they’ve just been cut off in traffic.”

This, dear readers, is a classic case of liberal projection. Like CNN executive Jonathan Klein, who derided Fox’s audience as full of “angry white men, and those men tend to be rabid,” and liberal comedian Bill Maher, who also railed that “Republicans need anger management” and are possessed with a “vein-popping, gut-churning rage that consumes the entire right wing,” Garofalo crossly blames the right while denying the pathological wrath and fury that characterize the unhinged left.

Whom are you calling angry, Garofalo? You want political road rage? Let’s start with Al. Take your pick: Sharpton. Gore. Franken. Yearrghh!

Now, open your eyes:

It isn’t out-of-control conservatives tossing Molotov cocktails at police officers in San Francisco, burning American soldiers in effigy and smearing pig’s blood and feces on the walls and windows of military recruitment centers across the country to protest on behalf of peace.

It isn’t rage-blinded conservative professors who embrace fragging (the murder of American soldiers by their fellow soldiers on the battlefield) as a legitimate anti-war tactic.

It isn’t vengeful conservatives torching SUVs, condo developments and research facilities and targeting biotech and pharmaceutical company employees and their families to protest on behalf of the environment.

It wasn’t mad conservatives sporting “(bleep) Bush” license plates, punching cardboard cutouts of the president and vowing to secede after losing the 2004 presidential election.

It wasn’t rabid conservatives who gloated over Ronald Reagan’s death or John Ashcroft’s pancreatitis.

It wasn’t a gut-busting conservative journalist who vowed to kill herself if Dick Cheney ran for president. (That would be the perpetually aggrieved Helen Thomas.)

And it wasn’t ruthless conservatives who cheered last week when a liberal Bush hater wrote on the popular DemocraticUnderground.com Web site:

I am an American, Born and Raised, but I am not a citizen of BUSH’S America. I want nothing to do with the country these people have created.

And for those who support them, Let’s get Something Nice And Sparkling CLEAR:

Stay The [bleep] Away From Me. Stay OUT of my personal space. I want NOTHING from you. I want NOTHING to do with you. I want NOTHING to do with your “vision” of what the world should be.

What DO I want from you?

Honestly?

I will freely admit there are days, and they are becoming more than not, that the Alien at Area 51 in Independence Day and I share quite a common ground on the answer to that question.

And I am NOT apologizing for it.

In the words of the Late, Great Bill Hicks, about the most conciliatory thing I can say for those people at this point is simply this:

Kill Yourself

My Christmas wish for Garofalo and her ilk: a mirror and a clue to make the yuletide bright. In the meantime, when vein-popping liberals start seething about the rage of the right, the wisest action for peaceful right-wingers I can recommend is this:

Duck.

Sorry. Malkin has this anger at Japanese-Americans that's totally inexplicable. It's like she has not yet gotten off the Boeing.

When she comes on TV we turn to another channel.

Wow. I didn't know she had promised to do that. Think we can get Vice President Cheney to run? ;^)

I listen to err America on occasion, but have never heard her - when is she on? I can listen to Ed Shultz, but cannot tolerate Stephanie Miller more than 3 minutes.

"Sorry. Malkin has this anger at Japanese-Americans that's totally inexplicable. It's like she has not yet gotten off the Boeing."

The Japanese, to this day, are reviled by peoples throughout the Pacific because of their brutality to everyone they encountered. They took sex slaves everywhere, they killed and/or imprisoned people indiscriminately. Remember the kamikazi's? Memories last a long, long time.

Janeane Barf-alo is a weapons-grade fool. One might as well seek political advice from a fifth grade progency of Jimmy Carter.

You might be interested in a song parody I wrote in 2003. You have to imagine Louis Armstrong singing it. Garafalo gets a mention she won't like.

What exactly is a "garafolo?" It sounds like something Dr. Suess invented, a cross between a giraffe and a buffalo. Hairy. Doesn't eat green eggs and ham. Hops on its pop. That sort of thing.

" Michelle Malkin is a sweetheart! " ...................
Yes, she is, and a smart one too.

I wish God would bless me with a wife like her, beautiful, smart, and a FIGHTING CONSERVATIVE.

It's too bad Garafolo couldn't enjoy Hollywood stardom. I actually liked her before she became a wacko - she had that average plain-Jane, girl-next-door hotness going.

I don't care how many times this story gets posted, this is still the best line of the week. ;o)

Michelle Malkin, charter member of "Babes R Us!"

One of those amazing (and far too rare) "wimmin" who's every bit as smart as she is beautiful! Funny how the vast majority lean to the right... I guess it's because they don't hold all that hatred and anger inside. Eventually it has to come out.

Mark
