Conservative Inc. Attempts to Cancel Michelle Malkin for Standing with ‘America First’ Patriots
Right-wing commentator Michelle Malkin is being targeted by Conservative Inc. – the billionaire-funded operative class that keeps the conservative movement from actually conserving anything – for cancellation with similar tactics and rhetoric that are regularly deployed by the far left.
Malkin drew the ire of Conservative Inc. after she gave a defiant speech last week where she applauded “America First” patriots who were challenging speakers such as Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, Never Trump cheerleader Ben Shapiro, and neoconservative Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-TX).
Her speech can be seen in its entirety here:

Malkin gave the speech to the UCLA chapter of the Young America’s Foundation (YAF), which released a statement afterward that looks as if it was written by a staffer with the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
The Keepers of the Gate have spoken. #AmericaFirst is not "mainstream." My defense of unjustly prosecuted Proud Boys, patriotic young nationalists/groypers & demographic truth-tellers must not be tolerated. SPLC is cheering. https://t.co/yYyqocx1T5

YAF’s denunciation of Malkin comes while other Conservative Inc. operatives throw her under the bus. It is clear that the paymasters in charge have sent the order that it is time to lead a politically-correct witch hunt against Malkin, in a shameful example of right-wing cancel culture in action.
Journalist Jordan Schachtel of The Blaze slammed Malkin with a guilt-by-association attack.
If you want to be taken seriously as a border hawk, elevating a crypto fascist movement and tying it to your own is obviously not the way to go about things. It's also pretty much the dream scenario for the Left & the MSM when the two movements are linked by major personalities.

In an attempt to smear her as a racist, disgraced and irrelevant pollster Frank Luntz pointed to Malkin’s support of Paul Nehlen’s Congressional campaign against House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Trump-hating pundit Jonah Goldberg, who was run out of the National Review, chided Malkin for not prostrating herself at the behest of Conservative Inc.
So here @michellemalkin says I was either lying or defaming her by saying she covers for anti-Semites. Three days earlier, she had refused to disavow a Holocaust denier she says is a leader of the new right. https://t.co/S48LkukhaM
Just thought I'd clear that up. pic.twitter.com/eQJ8gPNCUu

Self-described LGBT conservative Brad Polumbo, a Washington Examiner commentator with a penchant for young boys, called for Malkin to be castigated by the entire conservative movement despite her years of hard work and excellence.
Drag queen defender David French struck Malkin while defending the railroading of the Proud Boys who were recently sentenced to years in prison for defending their rights against ANTIFA in the New York City streets.
Nope. Basically all decent people who know anything about your comments are cheering.
“Unjustly prosecuted.” Please. https://t.co/A618InIYEp

However, not every single conservative is following orders and reciting the talking points against Malkin. Many are coming to her defense and respect her defiant stand against institutional cowardice in the conservative movement.
So why did you all blacklist @michellemalkin who is none of these things?
Was she too real for your establishment, open borders, Chamber of Commerce masters? https://t.co/S6h8LtknQW

Well @yaf this is pretty sad. @michellemalkin is a hero for civil rights of our citizens. Mainstream #AmericaFirst citizen. https://t.co/w6OnKAoFzR

Who are you even talking about?
This sounds like some dopey Leftist flyer you’d see on college campus. https://t.co/tTFRANoWBt

Big abuse tactic is to stifle somebody’s voice. Scare them into not talking, make sure they can’t cry for help, convince them nobody will hear/believe them. That’s what dictators & kidnappers do

While the “America First” patriots asking pointed questions at campus events can certainly be incendiary and offensive at times, they have made quite a substantial impact in a short period of time.
The ramifications of their grassroots agitation against Conservative Inc. are just starting being seen, as phony conservatives are forced to adopt ANTIFA-style tactics to ward the insurgents off. This is only the beginning, as the “America First” patriots vow much more of the same in the months and years to come.
