Michelle Malkin (1970- ) is a right-wing American political writer and all-round capitalist running dog. She has one of the most read political blogs in the world (michellemalkin.com), making her one of the chief voices of the American right on the Internet. She is a strong supporter of President Bush, the military and the war in Iraq.

At least some on the left seem to see her as an Asian woman with a loud, angry mouth who has nothing of substance to say. While she does freely call people names, her arguments do have serious substance.

She likes to point out the faults of the left. She has little patience for political correctness and does not mind getting people angry at her. That makes her a delight to read even if you do not agree with her.

Her blog, surprisingly, is a good place to get American news if balanced with something like the New York Times. The two together are far better than either alone.

She sees the left as brainless and out of touch with reality. She calls those on the left “moonbats” and those on the far left “barking moonbats”. She does not trust them to defend the country (they are cowards) or even to tell the truth.

Her blog is full of examples of how the press twists the truth to serve the left. If you doubt the left controls the American press, read her blog.

While she knows there are peaceful, sensible Muslims, she says there are all too many Muslims bent on destroying America in the name of Islam. She sees it as a serious threat that has to be squarely faced, not something to cover over with politically correct noises.

Like George Bush, Pat Buchanan and Anne Coulter, Malkin is a Christian, and not just in name only: it colours her view of the world and makes her feel certain of her opinions.

Malkin does not like being called “Asian” or “Filipina”. She is American, for goodness sake, and proud of it. Her parents are from the Philippines, but she was born and brought up in America. She is no less American than, say, the “European” Frank Sinatra or the “Jamaican” Colin Powell, both of foreign parents.

In her book “In Defense of Internment” (2004) she argues that the American government was right to send Japanese Americans to live in prison camps during the Second World War. She says that given what the government knew then (and not what we all know now) and given that it was at war with Japan, it made the right decision. To some this makes her a disgrace to her race.

Nezua the Unapologetic Mexican says of her:

Michelle Malkin, the Queen of Colorblind, has successfully become White®, at least temporarily. At least until she pulls her own type of Gonzales, and is reminded that her Whiteness was only an honorary award, one that not even marrying a White man, becoming a Brown-hater, and getting cozy in Bethesda, MD can make permanent.
