Well it looks like Bill O’
Racist Reilly smugness and his mouth has stirred up trouble once again! After his controversial comments he made on “The View” last week that caused Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar to exit stage left, he lured in a dumb ‘Uncle Tom’ to agree with him!
Former NPR talk-show host and news analyst Juan Williams made some unsavory Muslim remarks on O’Reilly’s Fox show “The O’Reilly Factor” on Wednesday night. Turkey neck O’Reilly asked Williams if there was a “Muslim dilemma” in the United States to which Williams replied,
“Political correctness can lead to some kind of paralysis where you don’t address reality. “I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot,” Williams continued. “You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the 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.”
Well of course that buffonery of a comment sparked the Council for American-Islamic Relations to call for Williams head! They claimed that Williams statement about fearing Muslims is seen as bigotry. They also claimed the comments “irresponsible and inflammatory” and that NPR should not let this go without action. Watch the video of Juan Williams comments below.
Williams who is seen as an liberal counterpart on Fox to the conservative hosts or guests is not new to controversial comments. He once described First Lady Michelle Obama as having a “Stokely Carmichael in a designer dress thing going,” of course a reference to the former militant African-American activist. Was NPR wrong for firing Juan Williams? Watch the video of Williams post firing below.
