DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Viet Dinh

February 19th, 2010 | 4 comments | Posted by Diana

You may remember Viet Dinh as George W. Bush’s Assistant Attorney General from 2001 to 2003, and the man hailed as the main author of The Patriot Act (for a memory refresher, download his opus here).


Dinh made a speaking appearance on a panel today at CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, and used the mic to defend the Patriot act as well as call out President Obama for killing too many terrorists.

From HuffPo:

“Why have executions increased?” asked Viet Dinh, a professor at Georgetown University Law Center and one of the authors of the USA Patriot Act. Citing a recent Washington Post article on the increased targeted killing of terrorists, Dinh complained that “the president and vice president expound this fact as a fact that they are actually successful in war.”

“That doesn’t mean I think they are not illegitimate,” he added. “No, we have every right to kill the other side’s warriors. But at what cost? When we do not have an effective detention policy the only option we have is to kill them before we can detain them.

Michelle Malkin Says Something Funny for a Change

July 28th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Today, Michelle Malkin posted about Barack Obama speaking to UNITY, a group of journalists of color–“Obamedia Watch: Left-wing minority journalists show their true colors”–and took down those “left-wing partisan minority journalists” for being biased:

UNITY and its minority journalism members are inherently politicized entities. They push for a left-leaning agenda of advocacy journalism, color-coded diversity, and open-borders sympathizing disguised as reporting. They mau-mau editors to avoid ethnic descriptions when it reflects badly on their group (see AAJA: Don’t call shooter Asian!) and applaud themselves for promotion ‘diversity’ in journalism.

Also in the post, she quoted a wire story that asked, “Can minority journalists resist applauding Obama?”–and responded:

“Um, well, some of us can. But we don’t count.”

Pardon the expression, but somebody STOP THE FUCKIN’ PRESSES.

Michelle Malkin is a journalist all of a sudden?!

[dangerously hysterical laughing ensues]

Oh, Michelle! You’re such a kidder! You almost got us with that one!
