[In response to the latest, unhinged, racist outburst from Michelle Malkin]
The question is not to deplore, but to understand. Where do emotions like these come from? How is it that so many who seem to be such golden winners of life's lottery manage to generate so much hatred, fear, and contempt for those who have fared less well? It would make an ugly kind of sense if such rage were expressed by those who had less against those who had more. But who stands at the highest window in the building to drop slop onto the heads of the unfortunates standing 10 or 12 stories below?
-- David Frum, September 21, 2012
These emotions come from the Base of the movement for which Mr. Frum has worked and relentlessly pimped for the past 30 years. A Base that has been the margin of victory in every Republican election in Mr. Frum's lifetime. A Base whose "hatred, fear, and contempt" has been cultivated like hothouse roses by people who used to pay Mr. Frum's salary.
The call is coming from inside your house, Mr. Frum, and it always has been.
