Right-wing columnist Michelle Malkin has apparently endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo, according to a Facebook post of a well-known conservative activist.

On Wednesday, Conservative activist Kanda Calef posted an invitation to a Nov. 18 Tancredo fundraiser, with Michelle Malkin, with the comment:

Breaking News: Not only is Michelle Malkin endorsing Tom Tancredo, but is hosting a fundraiser for him!!!

Malkin’s Twitter feed has been boosting Tancredo of late, and Calef’s post cited Reardenstrategic, which is assisting Trancredo.

Malkin, who resides in Colorado Springs, is widely known to share Tancredo’s hardline views on immigration and guns, among other issues, often spreading misinformation along the way.

In a 2014 column about Tancredo, Malkin wrote:

Malkin: And he’s got all the right enemies. What sets Tom apart is his lifelong independence and his proven record of bucking establishment politics. Nobody ever will accuse him of straddling the fence, sugarcoating his message or selling out. No wonder the powers that be in the bipartisan halls of power are scared.

In 2014, when Malkin endorsed Tancredo’s gubernatorial run, she called him “a principled, proven public leader committed to individual and economic liberty and our national sovereignty.”

When Tancredo ran for governor in 2010, Malkin was reportedly under consideration as a running mate.

    Michelle Malkin: Conservative hero and marijuana advocate

    “The war on drugs has been a failure. Prohibition was also a failure,” Malkin said recently, drinking coffee at a diner near her Colorado Springs home. “And pointing out that mainstream hospitals are administering these far more pernicious narcotics to terminally ill patients undercuts this whole idea that marijuana is this dangerous gateway.”

    In 1969 I wrote a piece for my freshman English composition class "Marijuana, Societies Albatross" advocating the legalization of marijuana. In 1969 13% favored legalization.

    The term "conservatism" as a political ideology can cover a lot of ground and some pretty divergent views. There are "libertarian conservatives" in the Goldwater genre who believe in ending marijuana prohibition, abortion rights, gay and lesbian rights, separation of church and state,  and criminal justice reform.  Rand Paul has come out forcefully against the reactionary prosecutorial and sentencing policies of AG Sessions.

    Then there are the "religious right conservatives" who are opposed to all of the above. Goldwater detested the infiltration of the religious right in the Republican party and the imposition of its agenda on the party under the banner of "conservatism."

      On the heels of the five-year celebration of the passage of Amendment 64, current polling indicates only 1/3 of Coloradans would vote to repeal the Prohibition-ending initiated constitutional amendment.  

      All of Nutlid's horses and all of Nutlid's men can't put that Prohibition rotten egg back together again.
