If You Haven’t, You Must…

Well, not really must, but I think it’s a good idea.

Steve Green, in his very first video piece for Pajama’s Media, comes up with a story quite different from the one he expected. Death threats, a minor bit of violence, and a Michelle Malkin showing far more poise than I could muster under similar circumstances.

While I have some big policy differences from Malkin, I still imagine that she would be a wonderful person to debate. She’s smart, she’s quick on her mental feet, and has a great personality. Having a few martinis and hashing out differences in viewpoints on everything from gay marriage to national security would be fun with someone like her. Any discussion with Alex Jones and his cartoonish, crackpot fellow travelers looks to be damned near impossible.

It’s also instructive of what happens when you disagree with the fringe left that claims to believe in free speech: you get threatened, shouted down, harassed, and at last one guy was assaulted (albeit in a minor way). And then these devotees of intellectual debate start shouting: “Fascist! Fascist!”

It would be funny if it weren’t so pathetic.

Honestly?  I am horrified.  I really, really dislike Michelle Malkin’s politics, but I have no issue with her as a person.  And that?  Was low, was cruel, was distasteful.  Those idiots are giving us a bad name.

It’s because of crap like this that I have no enthusiasm for this year’s election. We live in an era of unrivaled information exchange and yet no one wants to honestly discuss anything. They either want to “dialog” (talk with people who agree with them and develop nothing actionable) or they want to stifle free speech in the name of “sensitivity” or simply out of spite.

Well, I for one think Alex Jones came off as a real voice of reason.  A sensible mature intellect.  I only wish someone like him could be nominated for the Supreme Court, so the judicial system could benefit from his keen insights and erudite wisdom.

Mainly I’d kinda like to see a Supreme Court decision typed in ALL CAPS!  I think it’d be neat.
