Crazy Among the Crazies

By Daniel Nardini

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - CommentaryThe Young America’s Foundation is described as “conservative.” Having gone to its website and read what the people in this organization have to say it seems more radical right wing. They blame “liberals” and “radical leftists” for anything and everything (apparently there is no distinction between the two for these people). While I myself am not thrilled with Anitfa and politically left wing organizations like Democratic Socialists of America or the Communist Party USA, saying that these “leftists” are behind everything dirty and despicable paints a kind of Armageddon mentality of good versus evil. Such a radical viewpoint does nothing about solving problems or coming to any real solutions. But then, such radical people are normally that way.

Yet even among radical people like these, there are those who are way out there. In this case, I am talking about former Young America’s Foundation supporter Michelle Malkin. Malkin is a famous (or should I say infamous) politically right wing advocate. Strangely enough, there are two taboos that many right wing groups will never cross—outright racism and the Holocaust. Well, Malkin crossed this line when she came out in full support of alt-right extremist Nick Fuentes who has denied there ever was a Holocaust. Malkin is the same person who said that Japanese-Americans should have been interned in internment camps. Even for people to the right, this was to the right of Attila the Hun. The Young America’s Foundation essentially got rid of Michelle Malkin and will no longer sponsor her activities or lectures across American campuses. But don’t worry, there are still plenty of crazy people in the Young America’s Foundation who will rail against the political left and liberals as if they are the same thing. I guess there is no such thing as the bottom of the barrel anymore.
