It’s not just a woman’s prerogative to change her mind; it’s also Conor Friedersdorf’s. In his Atlantic column today, Friedersdorf got himself all bent out of a shape over a 2002 column by Michelle Malkin that dealt with illegal immigration. Malkin had argued that Iraqi terrorists could potentially enter the U.S. through our southern border with Mexico:

And according to Friersdorf, that makes her a fearmonger who suffers from a raging case of “needless, xenophobic panic.”

Thing is, a few years back, Friedersdorf was singing a completely different tune. He insisted that terrorists could leak into the country via illegal immigration:

Friedersdorf actually warned about the implications of unprotected borders on multiple occasions, as’s John Sexton points out:

You can run, Conor, but you can’t hide from the truth.

Ace of Spades continued the shredding:

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how the smackdown done gets brung.

Correction: We misspelled Friedersdorf’s name in an initial version of this post. We regret the error. Also, we revised  the headline to clarify that it was, not Breitbart, who shredded Friedersdorf.

    That wasn’t a can of whoop ass… it was a freakin swarm of tomahawk missile whoop ass.

  • JadedByPolitics

    Conor with one N is a POS of the highest order, he and the journolister dave weigel pretended like they were decent human beings but as good and dutiful LEFTISTS eventually crawled up from the gutter and showed their true selves!

    • Brian H (wackobird)

      Crawled? You must mean slithered.

      • JadedByPolitics

        I stand corrected :)

        • Brian H (wackobird)

          Its an easy slip, crawled is……appropriate. But slithering, that REALLY brings it home! I love how you nailed the rest of it……how do you even PRONOUNCE “Conor”. Is it like condor,drop the d? Or drag out the second o like con-Ore? Confusing, just have a not stupid name…… Steve.

          • Jay Stevens

            Still a bit of a slip. You slither down a gutter. However, you can slither up from a sewer.

          • JadedByPolitics

            I forget who mocked him endlessly for the conor w/one N I want to say Dan Riehl but its been a while however it was appropriate, he isn’t man enough to have TWO n’s…LOL!

  • Jim

    Hey conor64, may I suggest ointment for that intense butthurt you’re feeling right now?

  • Maxx

    Let’s visualize this smackdown as a WWE event, shall we?

    @conor64 is sprawled out near the center of the ring, bleeding like a stuck pig after Ace leaps off a 30-foot ladder to crash on top of the “underblogger’s” face…

    …while wearing a barbed wire codpiece.

    That about sums it up.

  • fanofamerica

    Ahhhhh, feels so good and never gets old being on the same side as Breitbart and Ace.

  • LightSabre

    Confront them at every opportunity. Way to go, Michelle and friends!

      I am enjoying the hell out of this thread, but I could have done without that image. Now I need some mental floss.

  • Jack Deth

    Ace never disappoints.

    Weapons Grade Whoop Ass stockpiled and for sale from Ace!

  • Brian H (wackobird)

    I wonder if his butt will stop hurting anytime this year…….not concerned with his welfare, don’t get me wrong. I just kind of wonder if he will need skin grafts,if any nerves were irreparably harmed……stitches or staples, long term care needs, etc. I am thinking about writing a policy to cover blogger to blogger beatdowns and I need data for amortization purposes. Ghoulish? YES!!!

    • Kyle Schroeck

      Will this be covered under Obamacare?

    • SDN

      Not if he’s got the same level of “power muscle glutes” as his “overblogger” Mistress Sullivan.

  • FreedomFighter

    AceofSpadesHQ strikes again and hits the target every time.

  • Lady 12

    I remember liberals telling me how Romney was a weak leader because he “flip-flopped” on the issue of stem-cell research. How can the left accuse anyone of flip-flopping when they have such steady and consistent geniuses like John “Haughty French-looking Senator Who BTW Served in Kyrzahkstan” Kerry, Barack “The First Gay President” Obama, and now Conor Friedersdorf?

  • Elizabeth Lipp

    Dayum. That was good.

  • Frustrated Teacher

    If you are not following Ace on Twitter, you are really missing out. Just be careful when you log in in the middle of one of his ‘smackdown’s’. It can be a bit disorienting if you miss what he is aiming at….LOL!

    The Achilles heel of the Comrades, is their selective amnesia…
    anyone diligent is able to expose their hypocrisy with ease.

  • RecklessProcess

    The people promoting totalitarianism all went to public school so they aren’t very good at remembering things or critical thinking in general

  • Dr_Tesla

    how come nobody ever calls out Andrew Sullivan for soliciting unsafe sex with gay men on the internet a few years ago. Sullivan is HIV positive too and he showed interest in having sex with gay men who are not. doesn’t get more irresponsible than that. at least he is honest about it, I guess.
    if there was a gay conservative that did something like that, he would be ridiculed by liberals forever.

  • Dr_Tesla

    this conor kid is the most annoying pundit out there. long winded blowhard who has nothing much to say of substance. I hate how he calls himself a journalist when he doesn’t do journalism. he’s a pundit, opinion guy. he’s not reporting stuff or doing original reporting.

    the funniest thing a bout Conor is he blasts Obama for violating civil liberties with the drones and other stuff like that, but then he mocks conservatives for disagreeing with Obama on domestic issues like that is nutty. so basically he wants us to trust a president he claims is violating on civil liberties as long as it’s not civil liberties stuff. I love that disconnect in his logic.
