Michelle Malkin, who thinks anyone she doesn’t like is part of a “mob,” told readers last week that she “despaired” when she heard Chick-Fil-A was no longer going to support anti-gay hate groups. Yes, this delightful mother and Fox News pundit — who strangely has been posting to Twitter photos of children as young as nine years old shooting guns and rifles — apparently wept when the news broke that a $4 billion corporation was no longer going to spend millions on groups that tell lies about gay people, that call homosexuality a sin, an that claim you can “pray away the gay.”
What’s a mom to do?
“When I first saw reports on Twitter that Chick-fil-A had caved to the tolerance mob, I despaired,” Malkin wrote. “Corporation after corporation has given in to the free speech-squelching agitators on the Left who demand political conformity.”
Catch that? The “tolerance mob.” God forbid conservatives show any tolerance. My way or the highway!
So, I wondered, what other mobs is Malkin afraid of?
According to Malkin, there’s a “Section 8 housing mob in Atlanta,” there’s “the Muslim mob,” there are “bloodthirsty mobs masquerading as aggrieved peaceful protesters seeking ‘sensitivity’,” and there’s this lovely commentary, also about Chick-Fil-A:
Remember: These were the same tactics the left-wing mob used in California to intimidate supporters of the Proposition 8 traditional marriage initiative. Individual donors were put on an “Anti-Gay Black List.” Businesses who contributed money to the Prop. 8 campaign were besieged by fist-wielding protesters. The artistic director of the California Musical Theatre was forced to resign over his $1,000 donation.
Message: Associate with the wrong political cause and you will pay. So much for national “civility.”
In fact, there’s only one angry mob gripped by “insane rage” in the wake of campaign 2008: The mob of left-wing, same-sex marriage activists incensed at their defeat in California.
Then there’s this: “Bigoted anti-bigots: How the gay-marriage mob slimed Manny Pacquiao”
