A Conservative group broke ties with right-wing columnist Michelle Malkin on Sunday over her support for an anti-Semitic personality on the Internet, a growing conservative civil war focused on college campuses. whose speaker's office has reserved Malkin for speeches across the country for the past 17 years, marks the latest battle between Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes and more conservative figures.
"Michelle Malkin is no longer part of YAF's lecture program at the university," a YAF spokesman said in an email to The Daily Beast.
Malkin did not respond to a request for comment.
Since October, Fuentes fans have been attending conservative college speeches and hacking speakers, booked by YAF and another rival conservative group, Turning Point USA.
Right-wing activists who call themselves "scammers" in nodding to the memory of a fat frog like Pepe the Frog usually ask speakers about United States assistance to Israel and immigration in an attempt to push racist and anti-Semitic beliefs. in the mass conservatism. On November 1
Right-wing figures such as former Fox News presenter and Trump campaign adviser Kimberly Gilfoil and podcaster Ben Shapiro have annoyed the activists, with Shapiro pointing to Fuentes' story of unregulated remarks in a recent speech. Among other things, Fuentes marched during the 2017 Rally in Law rally in Charlottesville and praised what he called the "tidal wave of white identity" after the rally. Fuentes also used his Internet video show, America First to deny the Holocaust, saying segregation was "better."
Malkin praised Fuentes and his fans, urging conservatives to engage with them. In a speech last week, Malkin called Fuentes "one of the leaders of the new right." In another, she praised Fuentes fans and called their conservative critics "creative." In addition, she often echoes their conversations with calls for further restrictions on legal immigration, she said. this prolonged immigration will doom the Republican Party.
"We are the majority in this House and we are the majority in this country," Malkin said at a UCLA speech Thursday organized by YAF.
Malkin's praise for Fuentes seems too much for the YAF, who sent a tweet that distanced Malkin on Sunday without mentioning her by name.
"There is no place in mainstream conservatism or the YAF for Holocaust deniers, white nationalists, brawlers or racists," the tweet reads.
Malkin shot back on Twitter, calling YAF the "Gatekeepers" and calling Fuentes activists "patriotic."
Malkin's support is likely to draw more attention to the "crooks" who have noticed at least one other win in their attacks against conservatives. Last week, under pressure from Fuentes, Turning Point Chief Charlie Kirk stepped down from a note calling for international students to receive green cards if they graduate from a four-year college in the United States.
But that surrender was clearly not enough for his critics – on Thursday, Kirk was expelled from the University of Houston on campus by a group of Fuentes hacking supporters.
