America’s biggest problem?Too many Orientals on TV!

Michelle Malkin gets hate-mail:

How do you, an Oriental, get on national TV and say and write such hard things about the President and several of his staff without being sued for slander?

Amazing, isn’t it? Complete non sequitur. Just out of the blue: “Hey, you’re Oriental!” Another classic:

I will be glad to have a debate with about your book, your vision, and you being an Asian who forgot where she is coming from.

Of course, they vary the ad hominem depending on who the enemy is: Rush Limbaugh is fat, Ann Coulter is a tranny, etc., etc. But it’s all just variations on a theme.

Anyway, Hot Air has video of Michelle’s appearance on the Hannity show to promote Culture of Corruption which — in addition to being documented with 75 pages of end notes — is also the Best. Book. Evah!

UPDATE: Notice the way Michelle’s critics manage to insinuate that she doesn’t know her place, that being a mere “Oriental” or “Asian” somehow renders her political arguments inoperative.

Does anyone ever send e-mails to Bill Moyers saying, “How can you, a Texan, get on national TV and say these things?” Or does Ed Schultz have to deal with people calling him a “German-American who forgot where he came from”?

On the one hand, conservatives are bashed for supposedly being “Racist! Sexist! Anti-Gay!” — a chant I heard in 2007 outside an George Washington University appearance by David Horowitz — but on the other hand, when confronted with conservatives who clearly don’t fit that profile, the Left feels obligated to make racial and sexual comments.

And they don’t do it merely as an insult, but seem to think that, in mentioning Michelle Malkin’s ethnicity, they have actually proved something!
