Michelle Malkin, who last year wrote a book titled Unhinged- Exposing Liberals Gone Wild, has been strangely silent of late on the subject of unhingedness.
As I’m sure you’ve read by now, a Freeper and self-proclaimed Malkin worshipper named Chad Castagana was arrested over the weekend by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force for sending fake anthrax letters and death threats to a number of prominent liberals. What does Malkin have to say about this? Nada, that I could find.
Okay, on the one hand, I can understand why she wouldn’t comment on Castagana. This guy obviously wanted attention and would probably be thrilled if Malkin gave him a mention on her blog. It might also encourage some copycat activity from the terrorist’s fellow knuckle draggers over at Free Republic. On the other hand… can you imagine the epic shitstorm Michelle Malkin would’ve stirred up if this had been, say, a Daily Kos member, similarly targeting conservatives?
But Castagana is only the newest example in a long line of recent conservative unhingedness.
Take Paul Burgess, for instance, a former White House aide and speechwriter for President Bush. In an October 28th piece titled, “Friends, neighbors, and countrymen of the Left: I hate your lying guts“, Burgess proudly declares that he “hates” Cindy Sheehan, Harry Belafonte, Ted Turner, Howard Dean, and pretty much everyone else who disagrees with him. He closes with the following sentence,which essentially blames liberals for his own unhinged rage:
And this year I’m voting a straight Republican ticket right down to dog catcher, because I’ve had it. I’m fed up with the deranged, lying left. They’ve infected me. I’m now a hater, too.
And then there’s Florida State Rep. Ralph Arza (Republican), who resigned from the Legislature in the face of criminal charges for making harassing, obscene phone calls to a colleague, State Rep. Gus Barreiro. Here are the transcripts (Calls 1 and 2 were traced to Arza’s phone. Calls 3-5 were traced to Arza’s cousin’s phone):
Call #1: Hey bitch, You’re nothing but a bitch. You’re a bitch. You’re nothing but a bitch. God bless you, bitch.
Call #2 Hey bitch. You’re nothing but a bitch. You’re ain’t nothing but a bitch, brother. My nigger. Fuck.
#3: Hey. You’re a pussy-assed mother fucker. You’re gonna see what’s coming to you, you little punk-assed bitch. You’re gonna see what’s coming for you, you punk-assed motherfucker. You’re gonna see what’s coming, nigger…you fuck-assed bitch. You gonna see. You’re gonna see me nigger. That’s right, bitch-assed, punk-assed motherfucking, slut-bagged bitch.
#4: Oye, tu erés singado por culo. Me recibo en tu madre. Yo me encago en la parida de ti. Singado. Tu eres una puta que no vale un tiro. Una puta. You don’t know me fuck. Nigger, you see me nigger, Ill crack your face open, punk. boy. You don’t know nothing. You don’t see nothing, nigga. I’m gonna fuck you up, you piece of shit. You don’t know a goddamn thing, fuck bitch I’m gonna fuck you up, you fucking no good son of a bitch. You’re gonna see what it is to be a snitch bitch, fucking boy., I’m gonna fuckin set your ass straight boy. I’m gonna punch your ass plain. I’m gonna punch you like a fuckin’ piece of shit…You son of a bitch. Fuck you.
#5: Oye, eres singado. Tu eres un culo rojo. Singado de tu madre, tu padre, tu tia, todo el mundo, Singado. Chivaton…Eres una puta que no vale un kilo en el mundo. Una puta que no ni vale pinga. Singado. You’ll see me, motherfucker. You’ll see me mother fucker. You know who this is. I’m gonna get you.
And who could forget “Sock” Sokolowski, a Centerville, Ohio man who sent a death threat to liberal radio talk show host, Stephanie Miller. BRADBLOG had the scoop:
Despite the numerous clear threats in the letter, Sokolowski — who opens the letter by writing “As with Cindy Sheehan the best thing that could happen to you would be seeing some WONDERFUL activist sticking an AK-47 up your Glory Holes and sending you into eternity” — claimed several times during the phone call that he didn’t threaten Miller in the letter.
Writing that “I am a paci-fist [sic]”, Sokolowski typed “this is not a threat” before he went on to write that he hopes and prays “that someone decides you’re better off as statistics.”
“Honestly,” the letter continues, referring to both the radio host and Sheehan, who lost her son in the War on Iraq, “should I hear of either you leaving this earth prematurely I would initiate a personal celebration that would make Animal House appear to be just another quiet Sunday in church.”
Promising to to mail copies of Miller’s H&C appearance to “some WONDERFUL people,” Sokolowski threatens that “we must identify this nation’s enemies and though we keep friends close, we MUST keep our enemies even closer and you two vile bitches are just that.”
Referring to both women as “mother fuckers,” Sokolowski writes that he hopes for further exposure for both Miller and Sheehan on “TV shows…as GUARANTEED your words will someday possibly accelerate your demise.”
He concludes that he “would love to celebrate and would for days on end as I would and will when still another America HATER meets his/her maker.”
And here’s a Freeper on October 19, bragging about nearly beating two people to death:
[…] I can only take so much. I’ve beaten two liberal idiots until one more hit would kill them in the last 6 years. It’s not the way I usually act, but they’re so confrontational and ignorant that I can’t help myself.

Notice how he blames his alleged victims and refuses to take responsibility for his own actions?
Finally, there’s this from a commenter on Michelle Malkin’s idiotic vlog, Hot Air:
Randi Rhodes needs a good ****, but then she’d probably consider consenual [sic] sex as rape

My goodness. These people sound downright irrational in their extremism. Some might even call them unhinged.
Not to worry though, as Malkin assures us in her latest book:
“The truth is that it’s conservatives themselves who blow the whistle on their bad boys and go after the real extremism on their side of the aisle.”
We’re still waiting, Michelle.
