Radio host Alex Jones, the P.T. Barnum of the so-called Patriot Movement, accosted Ann Coulter wannabe Michelle Malkin outside the Denver Mint yesterday. Jones, who looks about four times bigger than Malkin in the video of the event, angrily confronted her while a crowd of his followers chanted, “Kill Michelle Malkin!”
Now, among her exercises in shilling for the national security state, Malkin wrote In Defense of Internment to defend mass imprisonment based on race and/or religion. She’s been a useful tool for the neocons, a pretty, fairly eloquent spokesperson who’s faithfully made the case for more government control over our lives — for own good, of course.
But even threatening violence against women is reprehensible. Jones is a bully and a blowhard whose antics are more about selling his videos than about the liberty he claims to love. If he thinks this confrontation advances his career, he’s an idiot. Alex Jones has dishonored true patriots with this stunt.
