Everyone lay off Juan Williams, he's written BOOKS about Civil Rights
His insights on Civil Rights movement are IMPECCABLE. Instead of criticizing him, we should be basking in his wisdom on such matters:

http://thinkprogress.org/2009/01/27/juan-michelle-stoke... /

Fox News contributor Juan Williams — who has complained about the “militant anger” that Michelle Obama “sometimes uses” — kept up his attacks on the First Lady last night. Appearing on the O’Reilly Factor, Williams agreed with conservative commenter Mary Katherine Ham that Obama will have to watch what she says since, according to Williams, she is “Stokely Charmichael in a dress“:

WILLIAMS: And let me just tell you this: If you think about liabilities for President Obama that are close to him, Joe Biden’s up there, but Michelle Obama’s right there. Michelle Obama, you know, she’s got this Stokely Carmichael-in-a-designer-dress thing going. If she starts talking, as Mary Katharine suggested, her instinct is to start with this “blame America,” you know, “I’m the victim.” If that stuff starts to come out —

O’REILLY: Yeah, it’ll be death.

WILLIAMS: — people will go bananas and she’ll go from being the new Jackie O to being something of an albatross.


Ta-Nehisi Coates noted that Williams’ remarks “prov he knows very little about Michelle Obama and even less about Stokely Carmichael,” the civil rights leader who coined the phrase “Black Power.” Resisting “the urge to say something really nasty,” Coates simply quipped, “It’s a dangerous, dangerous thing to make a living running your mouth.”

20. He didn't lose his voice, he broke his contract and lost his job at NPR...
He still has his voice, Faux hired him for it and that says it all, imo.

Snicker... black people are learning that they aren't at the top of the minority heap anymore. They've been thrown under for teh gays, teh Latinos. . . and now teh Muslims.

He still has his voice, Faux hired him for it and that says it all, imo.Tells me Fox knows a good man when they see one. What makes me laugh is that the DUmmies scream RRACISSTTT...but when NPR a LIBERAL radio station fires him, and the supposed RAAACISTT Fox news hires him....the irony here is palpable.

The DUmmies dont see that, of course :rolleyes:

14. I totally disagree and like I said NPR only confirms to the
Faux viewers and right wing radio listeners that the left is trying to control our lives right down to what we even think. What NPR did caused more harm to our side than Juan Williams has. If it wasn't for all the publicity this has made I would hardly even know who Williams is. I don't watch Faux or listen to right wing radio but this will just confirm to their followers that they have been right about the liberals. I didn't get pissed off because Bill Clinton was fooling around with Monica Lewinsky, what pissed me off was it confirmed what the right wingers were saying about Clinton being a liar and a womaniser were true.

Yes, well, lying to a Grand Jury is never a good idea.:rolleyes:
