As quickly as Rick Sanchez can say the word, Jew......radical extremist conservative leaders almost hurt themselves trying to out whine the other in calling for the defunding of NPR over the terrible, awful, hideous decision by NPR to fire Juan Williams.
Roll over ACORN and tell NPR the news.
Let's unpack the pile of steaming....well...you know....
A column by Juan Williams appeared in the Washington Post in 1991, a column in which Juan said this....
Anita Hill had "no credible evidence" for her allegations of sexual harassment by Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, but that Hill was "prompted" to make her charges by Democratic Senate staffers.
Five days later, this story came out about Juan Williams....
Seven women said in on-the-record interviews yesterday that Williams had repeatedly made hostile and sexually explicit comments to them, in some cases over a period of several years. All of them said they believed the comments were meant to embarrass them, not an attempt to date them, and most said that Williams persisted despite their protests.
Jo Ellen Murphy, art director of the Weekend section, said that "he was obsessed with my sex life and that’s all he wanted to talk to me about . . . . I raised my voice at him and said, ‘Just don’t talk to me again.’ "
Seems as if Juan has something in common with Bill-o.
With that brief introduction to Williams, fast forward to this week....
Juan Williams talking this week on Bill O'Reilly's Fox program, "The Imbecile Factor".......
"I mean, look, Bill, I'm not a bigot. You know the kind of books I've written about the civil rights movement in this country," Williams said. " But when I get on a plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous."
Then this happened...
In a statement late Wednesday, National Public Radio said it was terminating Williams' contract as a senior news analyst over his comments on Fox's "The O'Reilly Factor."
NPR executives had previously complained about his remarks on Fox and asked him to stop using the NPR name when he appeared on O'Reilly's show.
And then the very predictable happened.....a Full Wingnut Alert was issued by the usual troglodytes, and just like with another organization that didn't do anything wrong, ACORN, the troglodytes started pushing for the destruction of NPR, through defunding, through public humiliation, through whatever means necessary.
Nothing unusual about any of this. It's just how the Wingnuts roll.
Glenn Greenwald has the best analysis about why the usual Wingnuts are screeching with such enthusiasm over what Juan Williams said and the prospect of defunding NPR, and I would not be the least bit surprised to see that Greatest Deliberative Body take up Public Broadcasting defunding legislation immediately after the midterms.
But let's fly along with Juan's freak for a moment to completely comprehend the assholery at work here. Once again, Juan's fears....
...when I get on a plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.
Juan is not your average Wingnut. He is supposed to know stuff. He gets paid to talk on Fox about stuff he allegedly knows. Stuff like this: of the 19 hijackers who attacked the U.S. on 9-11 by hijacking planes and running them into buildings....NONE were in "Muslim garb." Not one. The 19 hijackers dressed in typical, say, teevee journalist, clothing, just like Juan would wear on a plane.
And so, the one thing Juan should know.....is that Islamic extremist hijacker-types are rarely, if ever, going to be wearing "Muslim garb" when they carry out a hijacking or a plane bombing or whatever.
For Juan, it's just the opposite. He's "worried", he's "nervous" when he sees people on planes wearing "Muslim garb"......the very clothing that Islamic extremists do not wear when they hijack and blow up planes.
So, either Juan is stupid, or he's being less than honest. I think it's the former.
Of course, Juan Wiliams was on the O'Reilly Imbecile Factor to sooth Bill-o's bruised ego after having Joy and Whoopi walk out on his sorry, bigoted ass for the sorry, bigoted ass statement he made about.....you guessed it....Muslims.
"Muslims killed us on 9-11".....the obnoxious ass from Fox said on The View, which prompted Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg to immediately leave the set.
Which prompted the Juan Williams Waaaambulance to rush to Bill-o's Propaganda Factor to make the sexual harasser, Bill-o, feel better about himself.
The Reverend's paraphrase......'There, there Bill-o, Juan is here to do the job Fox's Fiends hired me to do,....to validate and confirm your assholery, Bill-o. Not only are you correct, my assholian friend....but I, Juan Williams, a fellow brother in sexual harassment, am also fearful and nervous of those "Muslim garb" wearing airplane passengers when I fly. I know I'm stupid about this, because no 9-11 hijackers wore "Muslim garb"....but that's not the point here, my bigoted buddy. It's about defending the indefensible, Bill-o.......that's what I get paid to do.'
Postscript: To Bill-o, and Juan,.....and all the scummy conservative defenders of Muslim bashers, bigots and sexual harassers......GFY.
