Right-Wingers All Rush To Say Craziest Thing About Juan Williams Firing

News

Juan Williams is a hero! Conservatives love their Fox News more than anything, and when you mess with a member of that family, you will pay, even if that member is black and liberal. To be fair, what Juan Williams admitted is probably the nicest thing anyone has ever said about Muslims on Fox News, and he actually said he was against people hating Muslims based on their fear of terrorists, so commentators have a point when they say he was wrongfully terminated! And if NPR had simply fired Juan Williams because he appears on Fox News, and not for a single comment he said on there, this wouldn't have been such a big issue. But the right has found its Muslim-hate martyr or whatever, and they are tripping over each other to say the most extreme thing about his firing. So who wins? How about Mike Huckabee, who says NPR should stop receiving public funding? Or how about Michelle Malkin, who says we should shoot mean glances at people who wear "Muslim garb" on planes and feel uncomfortable around them?


Former Arkansas governor and Fox talk show host Mike Huckabee's HuckPAC released a statement blasting NPR for violating Williams' First Amendment rights and called on Congress to defund the public radio organization. (The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which provides some money to NPR, receives approximately 15 percent of its funds from the federal government.)

Haha, HuckPAC RELEASED A STATEMENT. Mike Huckabee is a VERY IMPORTANT part of this story and will be ON CALL for all of the millions of reporters who want to ask him questions about his role in this matter. MIKE HUCKABEE SPEAKS ON BEHALF OF JUAN WILLIAMS, because Mike Huckabee says so.

Here's Sarah Palin, of course:

Yes, NPR will fire you if you exercise your First Amendment rights. That's why every other employee at that radio network is a mute who is not allowed to use sign language in the office. NO COMMUNICATING ANY FORM OF SPEECH AT THAT COMMUNICATIONS COMPANY.

And here's Malkin:

As I’ve said many times before: Political correctness is the handmaiden of terror.

Condolences to Juan Williams, whom I’ve debated –vigorously, but always with respect and cordiality — many times over the years.

Hope this accelerates his journey on the ideological learning curve. And I hope he doesn’t back down.

If we don't let the Muslims know they scare us when we see them on planes, they will destroy us all with their terrorism. We have to be bigoted towards Muslims and talk about this at every opportunity! It's the only way to save liberty!

But why is everyone avoiding the real truth here? FINE, we'll say it. Juan Williams is a secret Al Qaeda Muslim who actually did 9/11 himself on contract from the U.S. government, and he's just trying to cover it up. [WP/Malkin]

Donald Trump held another great big slob picnic in Orlando, Florida, last night, where he "announced" the "start" of his 2020 campaign, which will be exactly like his 2016 campaign except for the minor detail that he's actually been in the White House since 2017, which is really a bummer, man. Still, it's no reason he can't run as an outsider who vows to protect everyday Americans who believe he's just like them. The rally was a mishmash of the same damn shit he's said a million times before, and the rubes loved almost every minute of it except for the boring parts when he talked about stuff he's supposedly achieved in office, because not even his supporters care about trade policy or tariffs. They want an enemy, and they want to be told they and Trump will destroy that enemy together because they are the real Americans. So that's what Trump gave them, again and again, a feast of fear and resentment designed to get them to the polls. It was enough in 2016, and Trump thinks it'll do the job in 2020.

If there was anything new in the speech -- which was mostly Trump reading from a teleprompter, plus the expected weirdass asides -- nobody has identified it. He complained about the press and the crowd chanted "CNN sucks," and he explained what a threat to the nation Hillary Clinton is -- in fact, he mentioned her eight times during the 80-minute rant.
