Fil-Am Michelle Malkin, Does Her Opinion Matter?

|

Why “conservative” Michelle Malkin’s political opinion may trigger even “Filipino-Americans conservatives”

To Michelle Malkin, the most important role in her life is a mom to her two kids. For the rest of us, she is known as a national political commentator, conservative blogger, author, journalist, and a businesswoman.

Malkin charmed Americans through her sharp wit to develop into an unapologetic commentator in America’s politics. Michelle to date has one million followers on Facebook and two million more on Twitter—and she’s conservative! The kind who’s not afraid to ruffle feathers.

Michelle’s stand on a variety of issues that are otherwise taboo for most Asian US immigrants is noteworthy.

Her Views on open borders and immigration

While Malkin herself is the daughter of a Filipino immigrant couple, she presents a hard stance against illegal immigration and birthright citizenship. “People who are committing crimes and whose first crime was the original crime of trespassing our borders illegally or overstaying a visa illegally… identity theft and then being employed illegally,” Malkin told Matt Shupe in a podcast by Commonwealth Club.

Her opposition to birthright citizenship

Legally binding in the Citizenship Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, Michelle argues that immigrants have compromised the virtues of citizenship.

Malkin gets a lot of flak for being “anti-immigration.” Still, it has to be made clear that her stance is to stop the entry of illegal immigrants to protect the rights of American families as well as those of legal immigrants.

Her stance on unemployment benefits

The COVID-19 stimulus fight between democrats and republicans have left people hanging for hope, or hopelessness. While the intention is good, the danger of people abusing and depending on government is evident in the demands of rioters, pushing for a Marxist-socialist society.

Michelle talked about the issue of extended unemployment benefits with her usual candor. “If you put enough government cheese in front of people, they are going just to keep eating it and kicking the can down the road. People will delay getting a job until he three weeks before the benefits run out.

Feminist movement

The popular blogger believes being a woman does not necessarily mean being always right. She blasts the #MeToo movement for making women too powerful.

In one of her columns, Malkin tells men who embrace the movement that “your blanket ‘Believe Women’ bloviations are moral and intellectual abominations that insult every human being of sound mind and soul.”

Pushing for marijuana

Malkin supports the movement to legalize marijuana strictly for medical use. However, it is interesting to note that Malkin’s views on marijuana were different several years ago; she was totally against it.

Perhaps a knee-jerk for someone conservative, eventually, she learned how effective it is as medication. She has fought for it since then.

Malkin on alt-right figure Nick Fuentes

Malkin spoke glowingly about Nick Fuentes, a 21-year-old broadcaster who is known for making racial and anti-Semitic comments. Worst, a holocaust denier although Nick denies it. Malkin quoted saying Fuentes is “one of the New Right leaders,” according to The Daily Beast.

She also praised Fuentes’ followers. After voicing her support for Fuentes, the conservative group Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), cut their ties with Malkin.

In a statement, YAF said, “YAF gives a platform to a broad range of speakers with a range of views within the mainstream of conservative thought. Immigration is a vital issue that deserves robust debate. But there is no room in mainstream conservatism or at YAF for holocaust deniers, white nationalists, street brawlers, or racists.”

The Bulwark asks, How did the darling of “Conservatism Inc.” get caught up with Nick Fuentes, America First, and the groypers?

Malkin may be positioning herself to build a new platform. Lots of people seem to think that the alt-right is a phenomenon that will disappear when the Trump administration ends.

Michelle tells things the way she sees it, and Americans appreciate people who have the same candor as hers—should she be canceled?

Her outspokenness gained her millions of fans, and just as many detractors. One thing about Malkin is that she relishes having both; she takes criticisms with as much gusto as she gives them.

Michelle Malkin has authored four No. 1 bestsellers and recently released her fifth book, Open Borders, Inc.—with raving reviews!
