Why are “Conservatives” Throwing Michelle Malkin Under the Bus?

Second Amendment Activists Would be Wise to Not Dismiss Michelle Malkin’s Immigration Discussions

Published

Conservative trailblazer has been feeling the heat after giving a talk at the America First PAC conference that ran parallel to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C on Friday, February 28, 2020.

Soon accusations of anti-Semitism and white supremacy were hurled at the Filipino American woman simply for advocating immigration restriction and questioning America’s relationship with Israel.

Gatekeeping conservatives were quick to throw Malkin under the bus.

Bethany Mandel, editor of the conservative website Ricochet, penned an article titled “The Fall of Michelle Malkin”, which questioned Malkin’s recent controversial statements on immigration and why U.S. taxpayers subsidize Israel to the tune of billions.

After Mandel posted this piece on Twitter, Antonia Okafor, the Director of Outreach for Gun Owners of America, responded to Mandel’s tweet.

Okafor Tweeted, “Ha! It took this article for me to realize she blocked me. Glad I stopped a Republican group here in Colorado from almost hiring her to speak. We have nothing to stand on if we can not stand for the Truth. They have the freedom to speak but not to identify as Republicans.”

Malkin quote tweeted Okafor, stating “This woman, whose #2a work I praised, reveals that she stopped a Republican group from inviting me to speak in my adopted state of Colorado. Nice work, Keeper is the Gate. If you think you pounded the final nail in my coffin, you have a lot to learn, hon.”

Okafor has done impressive work with the organization she founded EmPOWERed, which is now a project of Gun Owners of America. This organization is dedicated to teaching women about how to properly exercise their Second Amendment rights.

However, this decision to keep Malkin from speaking is another example of conservative gatekeeping.

As controversial as Malkin’s ideas may be, they should still be engaged with.

Especially when considering how interconnected immigration is with Second Amendment policy.

For example, BLP reported that Hispanics (both migrants and their children) hold solidly anti-gun views. Should these trends continue in motion, the right to bear arms in America could be in jeopardy.

Now is not the time for conservatives to start purging or disavowing the dissidents within their ranks.

The stale nature of Conservatism Inc. will not propel the Right to victory in the upcoming demographic winter.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis

Published

on

After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”

Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”

Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.

In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.

With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.

Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.

A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.

This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.

Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
