UPDATE: Michelle Malkin has been FIRED by YAF over refusing to disavow Nick Fuentes.
“A conservative group cut ties with right-wing columnist Michelle Malkin on Sunday over her support for an anti-Semitic internet personality, ramping up a growing conservative civil war centered on college campuses.
Malkin’s firing from Young America’s Foundation, whose speaker’s bureau had booked Malkin for speeches across the country for the past 17 years, marks the latest battle between supporters of Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes and more establishment conservative figures.
“Michelle Malkin in no longer part of YAF’s campus lecture program,” a YAF spokesman said in an email to The Daily Beast. …”
Maybe all these people will go away, stop asking questions and we will be taken seriously again if we all virtue signal in our Twitter circle jerk about them?
There is no room in mainstream conservatism or at YAF for holocaust deniers, white nationalists, street brawlers, or racists.— YAF (@yaf) November 17, 2019

‘Groyper’ leader on segregation:— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) November 18, 2019
“Enough with the Jim Crow stuff. Who cares? ‘Oh, I had to drink out of a different water fountain.’ Big f—ing deal…oh no, they had to go to a different school…And even if it was bad, who cares?…it was better for them, it’s better for us.” pic.twitter.com/ZJ7LqpTHgL
Hi @michellemalkin. Fuentes called me a “race traitor” and “f*ggot” because I “work for Jews.” He also said that black people who complained about segregation needed to “grow up.” How do you feel about these statements? And in what way are they “America First”? https://t.co/fz8qcXrRCl— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) November 18, 2019
Wait a second…— Michael Knowles (@michaeljknowles) November 18, 2019
Are you telling me the guy who publicly supports Jim Crow, marched with Richard Spencer, says the Holocaust didn’t happen, called for executions at CNN, and refers to people as “shabbos goy race traitors” might have a problem with certain racial minorities? https://t.co/BrOxub1r0y
Michelle Malkin identified a Holocaust denier & open anti-Semite, whose history she was well aware of, & repeatedly proclaimed to crowds that she would not disavow him. She then falsely ID’d him as a leader of a mainstream movement. Her conduct is insanely harmful & inexcusable.— Jordan Schachtel (@JordanSchachtel) November 17, 2019
If you want to be taken seriously as a border hawk, elevating a crypto fascist movement and tying it to your own is obviously not the way to go about things. It’s also pretty much the dream scenario for the Left & the MSM when the two movements are linked by major personalities.— Jordan Schachtel (@JordanSchachtel) November 17, 2019
If you’re attacking @YAF for simply saying “there is no room in mainstream conservatism or at @YAF for holocaust deniers, white nationalists, street brawlers, or racists,” you need help and I want nothing to do with you.— Curtis Houck (@CurtisHouck) November 17, 2019
Nope. Basically all decent people who know anything about your comments are cheering.— David French (@DavidAFrench) November 17, 2019
“Unjustly prosecuted.” Please. https://t.co/A618InIYEp
To put it mildly: Fighting to keep a vile and racist Holocaust denier within the broader “conservative” movement fold is not a noble hill to die on.— Josh Hammer (@josh_hammer) November 18, 2019
Sounds like you’re ashamed of the fact that Nick Fuentes is a racist and a white supremacist so you’re making excuses for him. Sad. https://t.co/OvMxGUunuW— Ian Miles Cheong (@stillgray) November 18, 2019
The nation will still be here. We defeated your special brand of pasty uber-hyper nationalism in 1945. We’ll do it again. https://t.co/zK9ql6nWGw— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) November 18, 2019
Problems like that fucking green screen nerd Fuentes usually solve themselves. If Malkin wants to choose to be flushed with that turd, so be it.— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) November 18, 2019
Hurr durr … the dream scenario of the mainstream media and the Left is having to fight the culture war against the Dissident Right, not us.
