I am a neolibertarian minded individual who feels that freedom and individual rights take precedence over the wants of government. I believe government exists to serve the people and not to protect us from ourselves. I am an advocate for private firearms ownership, smaller government, reduced taxes and freedom to live your life however you choose, providing you do not directly hurt others.

Malkin Criticizes Coulter for Slur

As any reader of this blog can tell, I am neither a conservative nor a Republican. Nevertheless, I often enjoy reading Michelle Malkin's blog, as her views are similar to mine on the subject of illegal immigration. Most of all, I enjoy her sincerity and class. The title link is to an example of her doing the right thing and not engaging in blind party solidarity.

As most have heard, Ann Coulter recently made a comment at a conservative convention that more or less called John Edwards a f@ggot. Often in politics, you see influential people of like ideology overlooking each other's wrongdoings or standing shoulder to shoulder and congratulating each other on the wittiness of their personal attacks. Malkin did not buy into this, and rightly tore into Coulter on her blog:
We expect CPAC to be a place where conservative role models speak with clarity, passion, and integrity. There are enough spewers of mindless filth, vulgarity, and hatred on TV, at the movies, and in the public schools. We don't expect our children to be exposed to that garbage at the nation's preeminent conservative gathering.
With a single word, Coulter sullied the hard work of hundreds of CPAC participants and exhibitors and tarred the collective reputation of thousands of CPAC attendees.
Nice work, Malkin!

It looks like conservative blogger Hugh Hewitt has also entered the fray:
The use of a hateful slur word in a public forum is beyond the pale. It saddens me that we can’t have unanimity on such a simple and basic point.

As for me, in spite of all the thoughtful emails I’ve received to the contrary, I’m sticking with my original assessment of Ann and her “joke”: Idiotic. Disgusting. Stupid. Moronic.
It's good to see people speaking out for what is right, even if it might cost them a storm of complaint email from the more radical segment of their fans.
