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.

Cleveland Indians are Joining in the PC Radicalism by Discussing a Name Change

Published

Even Major League Baseball is not exempt from political correctness.

The Washington Post reported that the Cleveland Indians are in the process of changing their name after the Washington Redskins announced their decision to review a potential name change before the NFL’s 2020 season.

“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the Indians declared in a statement. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. We have had ongoing discussions organizationally on these issues. The recent unrest in our community and our country has only underscored the need for us to keep improving as an organization on issues of social justice.”

According to a report from The Athletic, the Indians leadership is expecting to discuss the matter with Native American leaders, fans, players, alumni, and staff within the organization before making a final name change.

The Washington Post pointed out that “The club de-emphasized its “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2016 in favor of the red ‘Block C’ logo.”

“We do have empathy for those who take issue with it,” Indians owner Paul Dolan commented about the logo in 2016. “We have minimized the use of it, and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.”

In the 2018 season, “Chief Wahoo” was eliminated and the team no longer uses the logo.

The degree of cultural radicalism America is going through in 2020 is off the charts.

The Left is moving at breakneck speed in its efforts to transform America in every possible way, while most of the Right stays asleep.
