This Is Actually Kind Of Sick

Michelle Malkin likes to blog in glittering generalities. She likes to take the juciest parts of a story and spice them up with that special type of speculative blathering that tends not to approach an issue directly, but instead lead the reader through a labyrinth of half-truths, double-speak, and pseudo-intellectual slogans that serve no greater purpose than to inflate her already obese ego.

The featured piece on her website today is no different. She continues with the story of Haleigh Poutre:

Almost three years ago, I started blogging about beautiful Haleigh Poutre. She’s the miracle child who was nearly beaten to death by her barbaric stepfather. Hooked to a ventilator in a comatose state, she was then nearly condemned to death by Massachusetts medical experts and the state’s criminally negligent child welfare bureaucracy, which hastily declared her to be in a hopeless vegetative state and wanted to pull the plug on her life. Thank God, the campaign to kill her was stopped. This blessed angel has been nursed back to health by an amazing team of caring therapists. Her plight brought end-of-life issues again to the fore — issues that so many on both the left and right would prefer to ignore. The stepfather is standing trial now for child abuse. And that trial has produced video of Haleigh’s progress that will bring you to tears.

It is with stories like this that the lunatic-fringe conservatives have created the illusion of the "culture of death" - the notion that "liberals" have devalued life.

It started out with Schaivo some years ago and continues today with Haleigh. But, as in both cases, there is much more than you and I will ever know. As outside viewers, it is difficult for us to grasp the reality that comes with dealing with situations such as these.

For Michelle Malkin, victims such as Haleigh are nothing more than the latest "weapon", a stick with which to beat people into submission.

Certainly, the very image of an abused child is one that pulls at the heart-strings. It is something that every parent wishes to never have to face. However to use girls like Haleigh is unpardonable. There is no rationale that can come from Malkin, or anyone that uses children like Haleigh in such an exploitative fashion.

The truth is, Haleigh was nothing to Michelle Malkin until she was nearly beaten to death. Children, other than her own, mean nothing to her unless they can be used to further her own personal agenda, her career, her sense of self.

As opportunists go, Malkin is certainly good at being one.
