Shame on Michelle and Jesse Malkin

YOU ARE VISITING THE OLD MALKIN(S)WATCH. THAT'S FANTASTIC. PLEASE VISIT THE NEW MALKIN(S)WATCH WHEN YOU GET A CHANCE.
Michelle Malkin: TERRORISTS HEART THE FRENCH

In a hateful, pithy post titled "TERRORISTS HEART THE FRENCH," Michelle and Jesse Malkin link to a BBC story about Florence Aubenas, the French reporter who was kidnapped in Iraq in January and held hostage for 5 months. The BBC article reveals that Ms. Aubenas' kidnappers gave her a "farewell gift" of two rings and a bottle of perfume - a fact which Michelle and Jesse merrily point out to explain why "Terrorists *heart* the French."

The article also points out that Aubenas' captors beat her and kept her blindfolded in an appx. 70 sq. ft. basement cell with no chair for 5 months. She was subjected to a mock trial by the kidnappers who accused her of being a spy.

The Malkins' partisan potshot at France based on the facts surrounding the kidnapping is shameful. After being beaten and kept in a tiny cell for almost a half-year, Aubenas was thankfully released - a fact that must mean terrorists love France. I wonder what the Malkins would have said had Aubenas been killed?

P.S. White Supremacists Heart Michelle and Jesse Malkin
