Michelle Malkin

Back in April, the Department of Homeland security issued a report warning of a possible rise in right-wing extremist violence. (here) and (here)

Well, a lot of people had some harsh criticism for the report. But none so harsh as professional lunatic Michelle Malkin

(seen here in one of her more lucid moments)

who had things like this to say about the report:

The “report” (PDF file here) was one of the most embarrassingly shoddy pieces of propaganda I’d ever read out of DHS. I couldn’t believe it was real (link)

the piece of crap report issued on April 7 is a sweeping indictment of conservatives. My b.s. detector went off the chart, and yours will, too, if you read through the entire report — which asserts with no evidence that an unquantified “resurgence in rightwing extremist recruitment and radicalizations activity” is due to home foreclosures, job losses, and…the historical presidential election.

Well, within a week, we've now had the assasination of Dr. George Tiller, and a white supremacist shooting up the Holocaust Museum. So maybe the report had a point?
What does Malkin have to say now?

"The truth is, this guy’s a deranged Holocaust denier. He represents no one on the conservative right - not me, nor any of those with whom I associate.”

Yeah, that was the point, moron! The report warned about EXTREMIST NUTS, not garden-variety conservatives.

Prepare for a wall-to-wall onslaught of gleeful finger-pointing on the Left

Prepare for DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano’s defenders to gloat about vindication.

Um, genius, it's not janet Napolitano being vindicated here since, once again, she had NOTHING to do with this report. The report was ordered by the Bush administration.

Why can't you either just admit that the report was pretty prescient in its warnings or just shut the fuck up about it?
