Kudos to Mrs M
As pointed out by a couple of commenters here yesterday, the moonbats have been posting Michelle Malkin's address, phone number, and even aerial photos from Google Earth of her neighborhood. Her response:I'm not afraid of you
I certainly hope that all these kooks are capable of is ringing her doorbell and running away. Or that she's a practitioner of the right to keep and bear arms.
I noticed this over at Memeorandum, and thought that perhaps, just maybe, one of the lefty blogs responding would have the responsibility to say enough is enough. Maybe?
Nope. About the best is "Let's not stoop to her level" meme. Quite a few liberals responding, but they all seem to have a similar theme:Orcinus
:We're all too familiar with this routine. After all, it's what the entirety of her book Unhinged was predicated upon. Malkin, as I said then, is like the lunatic who walks around the public square and pokes people in the eye with a sharp stick, and then is shocked, shocked, that anyone would respond with anger and outrage.

Peking Duck continues to refer to Mrs M by her maiden name
:Unfortunately, Ms. Maglalang, in case you haven't noticed, the tide in America is turning. We are tired of being spoon-fed candy-coated lies from the likes of Donald Rumsfeld and the Codpiece in Chief. We are tired of the death by a million cuts that is our misadventure in Iraq. We are tired of being dismissed as "moonbats" and traitors simply for demanding that America do better. You can rage all you want, and your angry audience can lap it up, but you are increasingly on the fringe, not the mainstream, having made yourself the poster child for all that is most ugly about the present administration. Have you ever asked yourself why so many people hate you so much?
That's an easy one. Because they're a bunch of "hate America" idiots who don't like anybody who stands up for it.TBogg
:Field General Jeff Goldstein of the 101st Fighting Keyboarders - Toast-em Pop-Up Division blots his brow with a tissue and calls for condemnation, a snubbing, a black-list, a look askance, a remonstration, and an official "shunning" of any one who does anything like what Michelle Malkin did except what she did was okay because those dumb kids did put their names on a press release that was intended for the press and since Michelle Malkin pretends she's a journalist everything is cool with her doing it.
Sadly No wins the prize for the most responsible reaction
:Bradrocket adds: Seething, outraged right-wingers should know that when some putz posted Michelle's number in the comments to one of our threads, we deleted it as soon as we saw it. Seriously, people, that sh*t is not cool so please don't do it.Pandagon
brings the Duke lacrosse rape case into it:Suffice it to say, the two cases are being received much differently by the right punditry. The Santa Cruz peace group is being called “seditious” and had Michelle Malkin release their private information on her blog so they could get death threats from her readers. As I mentioned yesterday, Kathleen Parker compared the Duke lacrosse team to lynching victims (missing the much more apt comparison of them to lynchers due to the whites-ganging-up-on-one-black-person aspect) and even vaguely implied they were martyrs like Christ. Charlotte Allen is running a series on the Duke rape case called “Crying Rape”, which she says means “accusing someone of rape”, but for some reason she felt that the phrasing that implies to most of us that the victim is lying worked better. The good news is so far I haven’t seen any right wingers fantazing about another Kent State at UC Santa Cruz, and believe me, I looked.
All I can think of is that Pandagon has not been following the Duke case or the Malkin/SAW case. Or the Kent State case, for that matter.
