Hatriot Michelle Malkin must have been so proud of her little racial dog whistle last night when, during a Hannity-show debate with Juan Williams over President Obama’s Syria policy, she referred to our president as a “rodeo clown.” Yet when Juan Williams suggested that her isolationism was un-American, Malkin was just outraged that someone would dare speak to her that way.
You have to consider that the only purpose of this segment in the first place was to afford Malkin an opportunity to flaunt what she calls her “rah rah American” sensibility that most of the rest of us would describe as hate mongering. Because, ultimately, do even any Fox News viewers really care what either she or Williams think should be done in Syria? And it’s not like they really explored it beyond a few inflammatory soundbites.
The fireworks began when Williams, arguing against Hannity and Malkin for intervention in Syria, wisecracked, “Now, Sean, you’re an isolationist all of a sudden?”
With her perpetually curled lip and wide-eyed look of berserk ill-will (see photo above) , Malkin jeered, “It’s not called isolationism, Juan, it’s called patriotism. It’s called putting American interests first.”
Actually, hon, what it’s really called is using your platform to demonize anyone you disagree with. Because while you have spent years bitching about “BDS,” your cute little acronym for “Bush Derangement Syndrome” your own Obama Derangement Mania could use some addressing.
Case in point: Malkin’s eyes grew even wider with hostility as she shouted, “The problem is that when you talk about ‘vital American interests,’ there are a majority in this country who doubt that the rodeo clown in the White House and his clown car (Malkin was literally sputtering with contempt) of humanitarian interventionists, these left-wing ideologues like Samantha Power, Susan Rice, John Kerry and Valerie Jarrett have no idea what they’re doing.”
Don’t tell me that Malkin’s use of the term “rodeo clown” wasn’t a deliberate and racial dig at those who were offended by the racially-tinged act of an Obama rodeo clown a few weeks ago.
Yeah, that’s cheering for America, alright.
But oh, when the tables were mildly turned, Ms. Flame Thrower just couldn’t take it!
Williams said, “Michelle, …I find it really hard to listen to you, someone like you. You know, the far right that backed President Bush going into Iraq, said, ‘You know, America’s military might, our strength, our voice, should support democratic efforts in the Middle East.' And now, because of your hatred of Obama, you’re turning your back on America’s role in the larger world.”
Later, Williams said, “If you are the new Tea Party, you would have run away from the boats in Boston. And Patrick Henry would have run the other direction from the Red Coats.”
For the record, I disagree with Williams here. I think there's a world of difference between fighting for our own independence from colonialism and interposing ourselves in Syria's civil war. But instead of arguing with respect, Malkin just ramped up her contemptuousness a notch or two.
“Let me get the last word,” Malkin demanded. She said to Williams, “You wouldn’t know what American exceptionalism is if it smacked you in the face. …You know what, can I just send a shout out to the two million bikers who just showed up in DC. These are people who know and who have sacrificed and paid the price. …Listen to them, Juan. These are true patriots and they’ve been through American history. And for you to say that I wouldn’t know what a true American revolutionary was, how dare you? How dare you?”
Apparently, Malkin was just so unglued by even the thought of someone challenging her patriotism that she lost sight of her facts. For one thing, it was thousands, not millions, of bikers who showed up in DC to honor the victims of 9/11 and the military members who served in its wake. For another, Williams never said she wouldn't know what a true American revolutionary was. But I wouldn't be surprised if she was projecting.

“This empty-headed goof-ball doesn’t get it. She’s just a lame, angry, frustrated witch.”
Who, like her friends who inhabit http://www.foxnation.com , simply will NEVER, EVER accept the fact that Barack Obama beat her men John McCain and Mitt Robme — er, I mean — Romney — FAIR AND SQUARE in November 2008 and November 2012.
“Has Ms. Maglalang been tested for rabies?”
Yes truman — and I’ll bet the house the test results were positive — AND THAT’S NOTHING BUT THE “DOG-GONE” TRUTH!
NOt to knock the symbolic gesture of their ride, but seriously, it was symbolic and meant nothing and was actually a rather mean spirited protest against other Americans exercising their 1st amendment right to express their religion. If they had gone their to stand by and stand up for religious rights instead of threaten other people for exercising their’s we have something to talk about…otherwise it’s just a bunch of guys riding bikes.

Of all the Fox “News” Empty Talking Heads™ Malkin is the most shrill and consistently wrong.
With all my anchor babies,
Really? You know this? Do you at least have a link to this?
I would imagine that she smells more like ‘hate’.
But I really hope I’m never close enough to know for certain.
The little woman acts tough on the air, but in reality, she runs off when confronted about her views. One time, a individual wanted to challenge her views. Instead of debating him, she got up from her table and walked away. Another time, she was outside and one person wanted to challenge her views. She ignored him and walked away.
This Rodeo Clownett is a little coward. She doesn’t have the guts to challenge liberals off the air. She prefers a control environment like Hannocchio the RINO’s failing tv show.
NOTE TO THE RODEO CLOWNETT
Why we don’t see Marizela photo on Fox “News”? Oh, that’s right. She’s not a missing blonde.
