I can’t figure out what Michelle is mad about:
I’ve often wondered what it would take for MTV to clean up its act. Now, we know. The aging music network wants Middle Eastern eyeballs, and it’ll do anything to cater to its audience–including toning down raunchy content and covering up scantily-clad hostesses. If it were America, the libs in charge of MTV would consider this caving in to Neanderthal social conservatives.
Is Mrs. John Doe mad because MTV is caving in to the Islamic extremists? Or is she mad because they won’t cave in to the religious fundamentalists here in the hedonistic US of A? Or is it possible that she is mad at both of those things (the most amusing and sadly, probably the most likely)?
Or is it just a slow news day and there are no Graeme Frost’s to Beauchamp?
*** Update ***
An alert commenter points out that in Mexico, MTV doesn’t even broadcast in English- no doubt codes for infiltrating the border. When will the treason stop?
Or is she mad, because here in the USA, MTV’s just givin the people what they want…
oy, what a fucking lunatic that woman is. her need to screech has overtaken her ability to maintain a coherent thought.
Michelle is mad at Eastasia, tomorrow it will be different.
She’s just as incoherent as ever – if something doesn’t fit in her narrative (What? corporations operating in other countries must cater to the social mores and corporate guidelines of those countries? This helps profits? That’s crazy talk) they just find some way to smear it using their “Madlib Outrage Post Generator” ™
But more importantly
Will there be a day when you can construct the entire sentence (outside the articles) with metaphors for right-wing sleaze?
Or, is she just plain mad as a hatter? Malkin’s “If it were America, the libs in charge of MTV would consider this caving in to Neanderthal social conservatives,” shows that she doesn’t know (again) what the hell she’s talking about. Libs don’t run MTV, business people do. If having the hostesses dress like Little House on the Prairie would have made big bank then that’s what we’d have seen. It wasn’t. Now they’ve apparently decided that the bank is in burkhas so the girls will cover up. It’s all about the Benjamins – or Euros, Michelle.
Unlike Fox News, which is apparently doing the opposite.
Know I just have a headache
Wait… Michelle Malkin is coming out against modesty and traditional values?
Crap, I almost forgot to mention that Michelle Malkin is an anchor baby.
Now. See, I can’t even think straight. You come up with one of these unknowable known conundrums, wrapped in a known-unknown enigma, and a riddle that nobody should know about.
“If it were America, the libs in charge of MTV would consider this caving in to Neanderthal social conservatives.”
You know what the difference is? Here, they don’t need to cater to social conservatives. MTV (as it is today) is socially acceptable (for the most part), meaning, they draw in good ratings with the “raunchy” content.
That same content won’t fly in the Mideast.
Bottom line, if MTV thought they would increase ad revenue in the US by catering to the social conservatives, they probably would.
Even worse!!! MTV Espagnol does not broadcast in English!!!
They are probably sending coded instructions on infiltrating our borders.
Well, I’d say it’s this:
with a side order of this:
Plus, it’s a lot harder to snoop around and check up on some MTV exec’s countertops, what with the gated communities and security systems and all.
Michelle has always been mad at Eastasia.
Free market at work, baby. And yet Republicans can’t seem to get behind it. Hmm, perhaps it’s not the free market. Perhaps all the media outlets out there that are profitable are only so because Soros funnels his billions through them.
Hmm, that rings a bell. Something about Moons and Scaifes… Not sure what…
The fact that she can’t breath with out her mouth open?
Why does Malkin hate Capitalism?
BREAKING NEWS: Malkin links to the Freepers who approvingly nod toward Confederate Yankee’s summation of LGF’s intense research (hat tip: NRO) demonstrating that properly translated, the network’s slogan in Mexico is “Your soundtrack to reconquista!” Ay, dios mio!
I think it’s “La Raza” and “Azaltan” talk non-stop on MTV Espanol’s version of TRL.
I once heard a Will Smith song that said “Bienvenidos a Miama” as a translation for “Welcome to Miami”. Why are my tax dollars going for bilingual rap songs! English only!
Sorry, I have to share this. Maybe it will cheer Michelle up to know that today is National Ammo Day:
When asked about what the U.S. should do with the prisoners at Gitmo, Mr. Pierce replied “Take ’em up in helicopters and dump ’em in the gulf. We all know they’re guilty.”
“Man, whatever! The guy’s guilty as shit. We all know that.”
teh stoopid burns on malkins site
Islamic law doesn’t allow western music either. Wouldn’t MTV need to cut out a lot more than a few cleavage shots? Or has MTV really gotten so bad that they’re almost acceptable in muslim society now? That’s really sad… and pathetic.
You’re assuming that MTV actually plays music videos these days.
Well, I had to read it twice to answer your question, but I think I got it. The trick is to imagine using the brain power and clarity you’d have after self-lobotomizing with a .45. Then you can think like Michelle and do the math properly.
She’s pissed because MTV will skin down the vids they show for Arab markets. Something they should do here, but they stubbornly won’t because MTV hates America. It follows they will be considerate to the Arab audience because…easy…MTV not only hates America, they hate Americans. Of course, Americans = SoCons.
See, clear as day. All it takes is a .45 to the temple you waterboarding pussies. Be like Michelle.
da ho be a ride pimpin’ liar.
have you considered the possibility that she’s Coultering?
*to coulter – to feign outrage or write or say outrageous things in order to curry favor with and make money from ideological or political extremists, with no regard to whether one actually believes what one is writing or saying.
My interpretation of Malkin:
1: “The media is dominated by liberals”
2: “Liberals treat the same moral values differently depending on the religion of the person espousing them.”
2: “No one listens to us Christians because we are peaceful but they listen to the Muslims because:
a. Liberals look down on Christians and Christianity
b. Islam is not ‘western’ and neither are most Muslims and therefore automatically given more respect by liberals than anything from their own culture
c. Muslims will cut your fucking head off”.
Oh, sweet merciful crap! From Malkin’s comments:
Yes. The company that brought you Tila Tequila’s bisexual dating and Real Worlders wandering around naked is just sooo excited to see the US come under Sharia*.
*Sharia: something that is going to be transported here, apparently via magic, that the hempy, hedonist moonbats will instantly embrace, while the right wing moral scolds will fight valiantly to defend our freedom**.
** Despite the fact that many of their leading lights seem to believe that becoming a more fundamentalist nation would be a boon to the U.S. and would actually help our relationship with Islam. See also: Dinesh D’Souza, Michelle Malkin.
It’s obvious that Stalkin Malkin hates MTV because they don’t play any of that shitty right wing crap that the vast majority of Americans (or the world for that matter) don’t listen to. Her only hope is that Rupert Murdoch buys his own radio station empire and plays it.
oxycon, are you suggesting that Christian alt-rock sucks ass?
MTV is a liberal plot to destroy America by ruining our moral fiber. But its evil overlords don’t care about destroying jihadi moral fiber, so they won’t bother being filthy over there.
Worsse off, MTV Latino broadcasts videos like these:
THATS a coded message for “Reconquista”. ;-)
The most awsomest law I ever heard
Sharia, Sharia, Sharia, Sharia.
All the repressive laws of the world in a single word:
Sharia, Sharia, Sharia, Sharia, Sharia.
Sharia, I’ve just read the law named Sharia,
and suddenly the law will never be as lame to me.
Sharia! I just kissed a girl but can’t see her.
And suddenly I’ve found how wonderful a law can be.
Sharia, say it loud and there’s Michele baying.
Say it soft and it’s more like betraying,
Sharia, I never stop saying: “Sharia!”
Ah, well played. I think this is the best explanation so far.
As far as I can tell she’s mad that MTV caters to its markets. So I guess she hates capitalism?
So isn’t Stalkin’ Malkin admitting in a circular way that Christianity and Islam are very close, if not identical, when it comes to moral values? For all the talk of burquas and sharia, isn’t the ideal society of Evangelicals the image of women pregnant and barefoot in the kitchen? Doesn’t Stalkin’ realize that if the extreme right that she so zealously supports were to have its way she may or may not have the approval of ‘the menfolk’ to blog away at will like she does now in our lovely free country?
Hey! Over here, I’m still relevant! Hello? Just ‘cos Faux News dumped my ass for Laura Ingram doesn’t mean I’m not A Very Important Conservative Voice. Wanna see me get outraged? I can get angry about anything, really. Look! Look at me get angry! Hello?
I’ve got a cheerleaders outfit!
jake nails it. Stalking Malkin has learned the core truth of the Great Right Wing Pnwership society — the squeaky cartwheel gets the grease.
They think “pimp my camel” is a seriously hilarious joke. It got like nine shout-outs. Other conservative humor evidently includes “Sharia? I hardly know her”. They also seem to think that Jimmy Buffett, Three Dog Night, Meatloaf, and George Michael would be relevant here somehow. I guess I’m happy to see that the Senior Center has wireless and all, but don’t y’all have a 4:00 buffet to get to or something?
Mel Brooks could not do better than that line (are you sure you did not steal it from him?)
Malkin and the Malkinettes, their whole world-view comes down to one word: resentment.
This Quote from Roy Edroso is both hilarious, and perfectly illustrates what’s so ironic about the culture scolds’ conflict of objection when it comes to their love of the free market:
Really? They dumped her? What, Fox News didn’t have enough fat-lipped blondes with boobs reading their scripts? One of their guys once said they had that market cornered.
Maybe it was Michelle’s spat with Geraldo, another FN powerhouse thinker.
Why does Michelle Malkin hate … er … um … Michelle Malkin … ?
Oh noes, I dun got out-crazied by another right wing pundit. Woe iz me.
Jen – You’ve seen the “My Sharia” video and heard the “Bush was Right” (2004) song, haven’t you? Both hilarious, in completely unintentional ways.
Fixed for “MTV-crowd”
Have not seen those. YouTube?
To be fair to the SoCons (which is more than they deserve), they really do hate capitalism, and always have. As Our Lady of the Concentration Camps demonstrates here, they paper over their disagreement with their fellow cons by insisting that the capitalist enterprises they particularly hate are run by liberals.
The Other Steve
Apparently Michelle is a huge fan of Gwen Stefani.
Oh wait, strike that. Reread the piece and apparently she’s upset with Stefani because she’s not going to wear a cheerleaders outfit during her concert thus capitulating to the social conservatives. Oh, and by the way, the muslims have not expressed enough outrage about the opening act who is even more lewd and obscene. Thus proving that they don’t care about lewd and obscene, or something like that.
What the left has to do with Malaysian muslim students, I can’t quite figure out. But I’m sure we’re all at fault.
The Other Steve
Ah ha! You found the connection to the left!
It’s always the fault of the left!
“As usual”? How many times has this Akon person toured in Muslim countries?
Oops, I’m trying to make sense out of the senseless. Never mind.
Isn’t it obvious? They both hate America and want to impose Sharia and burkhas and stuff.
Well, in Malkin’s defense, I think we can agree that this could be legitimate cause for outrage.
The Other Steve
True. Perhaps Malkin is upset she didn’t get called to be a back up dancer.
She should just admit why she’s really mad at MTV: the fact that the majority of their shows have little to nothing to do with music.
What is Michelle mad about?
She doesn’t like MTV
She doesn’t like soft porn – unless it’s FauxNews
She doesn’t like liberals
She doesn’t like Muslims
She doesn’t like a US lack of censors
She doesn’t like the 1st, unless it’s her version of speech
Toss it in a pile, stir well, and voila
you have a true mess, angry and worth 118 comments
It seems some of you assumed the words and items had to be in some sort of order…
No. They didn’t really say that. Did they? (I could go over to the website and check, but I may need eye surgery in 20 or 30 years, so I don’t want to damage teh orbs prematurely.)
Also speaking of morons, some Kirkland former nfl pastor is trying to take on MS financially over teh gay. How stupid do you have to be to think you can but a majority position in Microsoft, much less only for the express reason of punishing teh gays. Not like one in four Microsoft employees are gay or anything. Not like the software industry exists because it is tolerant of freaks and that’s why cap hill and the castro have grown massively. Not like we spend many hours a day writing out pages of pure logic, that can be compiled for a computer. It’s like the most productive areas of the economy are where gay tolerance is a given. Where transgender tolerance is a given. Really where as long as you don’t destroy the sturctural supports for the building is a threshold. (Insert stories of people drilling their own golf holes inside the building here.) (also, Chihuly football)
Since she wrote the defense of internment, I want to know if she would write a defense of the suicide of Turing. You know, the guy that more or less formalized computer science and cracked all of the nazi encryption codes. If she actually believes we should have lost magnitudes more personell and shipping in WW2 to preserve her anti gay bias. If she believes that the father of computer science was right in taking his own life due to the prosecution he faced.
One of the three people you can conclusively say deserve credit for ending world war 2.
To cozy up with the Nazis because we shared a common belief that fags were gay. And should die.
Someone get that woman a strait-jacket, pronto. She’s seriously addicted to anger.
she’s just seriously addicted to traffic (publicity). gotta feed the outrage machine, since that’s waaaaay easier than actually coming up with a thought ala Coulter. guess she’s finally shed the journalist label, thankfully.
funny how at the bottom, all this R stuff is nothing but endless recycling of preconceptions. maybe there was a thought in there once other than DFH, but who knows where. maybe what they all do is watch reruns of “All In the Family” but without watching till the end?
It comes somewhat from the Dinesh D’Souza school of thought that America’s excesses simultaneously inflames and JUSTIFIES Islamic contempt for us. Therefore in order to defeat the Islamofascists we must become just a few notches more like them. Doing so in Arab world but failing to do so here is just typical leftist appeasement.
Here’s a link to both the Malkin cheerleader video and the “Atlas Shrugs” My Sharia goodness.
The “Bush was Right” video is similarly hilarious.
What passes for satire and comedy on the right is truly a window into their “minds”, as it were.
I DONT WANT MY MTV after all they gave us that wretched program JACKASS
I don’t see that she has–she still thinks of herself as a Very Serious Journalist doing Very Serious and Important Work that the Commie Liberal Media Won’t Do Because It Hates Conservatives and America (Which Are One and the Same).
Or did she finally cop to being a sad little hack in that thread?
