Here's what he said on Fox, that (finally) got him fired from NPR:
"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. 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." ~Juan Williams, on the O'Rielly Factor
Now... I'm not a big...... fan of saying that if you start a paragraph out that way, then that means you probably ARE. You can absolutely start a paragraph out that way, and NOT be a bigot. But if you do start out a paragraph out that way, you probably shouldn't spend the REST of that paragraph proving yourself wrong.
Allow me to translate what he said from Conservative Black Man to ENGLISH:
I'm not a bigot. I'm just going to use derogatory stereotypes to explain why I don't like certain people!Doesn't that make a lot more sense? And you gotta love that bit about not being a bigot because he's written books about the civil rights era. Translation:
I'm not a biggot. I love black people!
That would carry a little more weight if.... HE WASN'T BLACK! By that logic, I can't be a bigot, simply because I don't hate WHITE PEOPLE! And to think... this same crowd actually called Sonya Sotomayor a racist for not hating Latinas!
Oh and uh... Note to Juan: The actual terrorists don't come riding in on camels, waving scimitars and smoking hookah's while they stroke their long beards with fingers covered in bejeweled rings. They look like US. They BLEND IN! That's how they got past security in first place: Nothing unusual about them! That guy you're talking about? Even the TSA let him go, because they know that no terrorist would be stupid enough to get on a plane wearing something "identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims."
He's not only a bigot, but he's incredibly stupid to boot. It's about time NPR dropped this clown.
Speaking of NPR... (shift gears)
Great story today detailing how the Conservatives over in England are about to tank their entire economy.
(No that's not how they said it! But that's pretty much the inevitable result, you wait and see!)
My favorite part (not included in the link) was the idea that after they shed something like 500,000 public sector jobs, they expect the private sector to pick up the slack.
Yep, the Conservatives over there are pretty much as stupid as they are here, folks.
Why he hell would any company hire ANYONE when there are soon to be about half a million more people who are going to be NOT BUYING ANYTHING?! Demand is about to TANK. Who the heck do they think will be hiring?!
Speaking of which...
HRM Queen Elizabeth II has decided that since the economy is so weak, that she shouldn't have her elaborate Christmas Parties and Holiday Balls this year. You know... It just wouldn't be right to have all that elaborate celebrating and spending all that money when so many people are struggling.
(You, uh... see where I'm going with this, right?)
I just wonder how thankful the caterers, tailors, limo drivers, dressmakers, porters, cabbies, not to mention all the restaurants and other London attractions will be , knowling that all that money they the usually make of those kinds of fancy occasions will be denied them this year, on top of an already tough economy.
You know... because the economy's bad, it just wouldn't be right, to...
I don't know...
HELP OUT, I guess.
THANKS A LOT, YOUR ROYAL CHEAPSKATE!
They suck all over the world, folks.
(okie: I got one more and I'll answer your email, K?)
