Japanese Internment Camp Apologist Degrades Holocaust Warning

Michelle Malkin made her mark defending America's use of internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II. She's gone on to screech and villify the left at every opportunity, even appearing to be the heir apparent on "The O'Reilly Factor" until even Bill had to kick her hatred and drama to the curb.

She's still got one of the top-viewed blogs on the Internet, though, and she's leading the charge against the Democrats over the AIG news. She's been instrumental in blaming Chris Dodd entirely for something he did at the behest of the Treasury Department, and then portrayed Dodd as spineless for knuckling under when it was only his relenting that ensured the Obama Adminstration did have a process to try and get that money back.

However, today she's finally found her vicious stride. Today the House Democratic plan for taxing the bonus recipients to get the money back comes under her fire, and her headline is a shocker:
First They Came For The AIG Bonuses
This is of course the bastardization of a famous quote from Martin Niemöller about the hideous inaction of the German people in the face of the Nazi threat.
In Germany, they came first for the Communists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist;

And then they came for the trade unionists, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist;

And then they came for the Jews, And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew;

And then . . . they came for me . . . And by that time there was no one left to speak up.
Malkin's appropriation of this poem cheapens it, and all in service of protecting people who got cash even while their company tanked the world economy.

Get your bloody hands off Niemöller's poem, Ms. Malkin. Someone who's spent her life drowning out the people who dare speak up has enough sins to atone for.
