Self-pedastalizing is exactly right. The feckless Matt Lewis doubled-down on his “Michelle Malkin is execrable” remark yesterday. As Twitchy reported, the hacktastic concern troll tried to grasp at a straw of relevance by weighing in on David Frum’s despicable attack on Michelle Malkin. When doing so, he called Michelle Malkin ‘execrable,’ and bravely ran away when asked to explain.
Bingo! Yesterday Matt Lewis continued publicly shooting blanks by offering up a piece at The Daily Caller, titled “No apology.” It should have been called “No explanation.” The entire alleged article was a study in Better Than You and Smarter Than You concern-trolling, all used as a way to pat himself on his smug back.
See, according to Lewis, he’s awesome and everyone else has a “schtick” and they make an icky living at it. Michelle Malkin’s success? She built that. And Matt Lewis says it does not suit.
Twitchy founder and CEO Michelle Malkin takes Mr. Lewis to the woodshed. Again.
And that she does. She has built wildly successful websites, employing others and contributing to their success. She promotes “just bloggers” every chance she gets. She treats everyone as an equal, always.
But according to Matt Lewis, being a strong fighter and a successful woman is all icky schtick. Here’s the thing: Mr. Lewis projects too much.
Guess what being a Beltway Bubble hack is, toots? A schtick. Constantly playing “let’s be fair” and “oh-so-above it all?” Schtick and schtick.
Michelle Malkin speaks truth. That’s not schtick; that’s honesty. Treating people as equals who can understand hard truths? That’s not schtick, that’s human decency. That’s caring about people and our country. That’s being a happy warrior, as opposed to a Smarter Than You jackass who sneers in contempt at those silly rubes who don’t wish to sit on the fence like a milksop. In fact, he went so far as to call those who came to Michelle Malkin’s defense “minions.” See, no one smart could possibly agree with or admire Michelle Malkin. Well, some of her “minions” weighed in today and, as always, brilliantly.
No, no. Lewis is totally Better Than You ™.
Matt Lewis, of course, gets ready to bravely run away again. In a ludicrous statement, he mentions “retribution.” Oh, sweetie; No one needs to give “retribution” to a pesky gnat. Plus, this proves how little he knows Michelle Malkin, who doesn’t have an evil bone in her tiny body!
Bless his heart! Her “minions” continue trying to explain reality to Mr. Lewis, ensconced in his sad, little bubble.
Indeed! You know what else it is? Schtick.
Poor, little sad boy again bravely runs away.
Why on earth would she care what you have to say anymore, Matt? Plus, wait … what’s this?
That’s right. Matt Lewis is blocking people simply for agreeing with and supporting Michelle Malkin.
Aww, he can’t take the concern-trolling heat.
And the hashtag #MalkinMinion takes off!
That’s it right there. Michelle Malkin does not talk down to people. She talks with them and she gives voice to the feelings and beliefs of many in this country. You know, people who are willing to fight and not pontificate impotently while going along with the status quo.
These Twitter users sum it all up.
Yep. We’ll take truth, honesty and fighting like a girl any day. Conservative women don’t shoot blanks. They, and their brass ovaries, hit the target every time.
Move out of the way, boys, and save your concern trolling. We don’t have time for that nonsense. Women like Michelle Malkin, and the strong women and men who support them, are too busy doing the job that you can’t.
