Malkin It Up As She Goes Along

Posted by codemorse

Glenn Greenwald once again uses common sense to battle the hypocrisy of "conservative" pundits. I recommend reading the entire post on his blog. It's that good.

From Unclaimed Territory:

Michelle Malkin is extremely upset because three convicted Christian terrorists in Indonesia are going to be executed despite -- in Michelle's words -- "grave doubts raised over the fairness of the trial." The title of her post is "Muslims will execute Christians" -- by which she means that the Government of a predominantly Muslim country will execute three defendants who happen to be Christian, because they also happen to have been convicted in a trial in an Indonesian court of law "of masterminding a massacre of 200 Muslims in Poso."Michelle favorably links to this article from Asia News which reports -- and I'm not making this up -- that the lawyers for the three convicted Terrorists:

'will take their case before the International Criminal Court in Geneva, as per a human rights convention ratified by Jakarta, to safeguard the three men’s right to life and to denounce irregularities of Indonesian trials.'

Michelle, and an equally outraged
Gateway Pundit (to whom she links), both provide contact information to protest on behalf of the Terrorists and to help those organizations trying to secure them a stay of execution and a new trial.

According to the article to which Michelle linked, the complaint is that the Terrorists "were convicted by a trial riddled with illegalities, like witnesses who were not listened to and evidence that was rejected by the court."

Wow -- a trial where the witnesses are not listened to and improper evidence was used. What kind of country would convict someone of terrorism using procedures like that? And what kind of disgusting barbarians would be opposed to having "the International Criminal Court in Geneva," pursuant to an international "human rights convention," demand greater legal protections for terrorists?

This post writes itself. For instance, I thought (from having
read Michelle's blog) that people who were concerned about due process for Terrorists are themselves pro-terrorists...

Except that the terrorists here are Christian. Which apparently makes all the difference in the world.

Yet another "wonderfully" illustrative example of how absurd the conservative War on Terror is. Had three Muslims conspired to mastermind the murder of 200 Christians, how do you think Ms. Malkin might have reacted?

AS Bill Maher once said, Wow thats some powerful stupid. But you can't expect consistency from people like Malkin. It's like expecting a stripper to keep her clothes on.

Right...except I want consistency from Malkin.

I do not want strippers keeping their clothes on.

...Yessir, codemorse is a classy joint alright.
