Michelle Malkin: The Right Should Hire ‘Full-Time Conservative Protesters’

Conservative commentator and CRTV host Michelle Malkin told Breitbart radio listeners that wealthy right-wing activists needed to hire “full-time conservative protesters” to represent their causes at events.

Last night, Malkin appeared on Breitbart News’ nighttime SiriusXM Patriot show “Breitbart News Tonight,” where she said that she thought that wealthy right-wing political figures should fund the creation of an organizing infrastructure for conservatives similar to what she imagines liberals have already established. Right-wing media have been hysterical for years at the thought that shady political groups are secretly funding massive demonstrations against the Trump administration, but Malkin suggested that the right should employ similar tactics for its own cause.

“When I pointed this out, one of the responses that I got from readers is, ‘Well, we can’t be there to push back because we have jobs.’ And I’ve heard that time and again over the last 25 years when excuses are made about why our side never has boots on the ground,” Malkin said.

“I really do think it’s time that somebody invests in full-time conservative protesters to make sure that these optics are balanced with people who supported Brett Kavanaugh, who support the rule of law, who support due process, and make sure their voices are heard in response as well,” she added.

Malkin expressed frustration that there seemed to be “always a bunch of new names and there’s always new blood” on the left out in the streets opposing the right, for which she blamed the right’s favorite billionaire boogeyman, George Soros.
