Juan Williams Reprehensibly Called an Uncle Tom. I Say He is Uncle Awesome
Juan Williams is just the latest in a long line of people vilified and abused by the Left for not walking in lockstep. On the O’Reilly Factor, he was told, by Warren Ballantine, to “go back to the porch”. This is one of those real “code words’; Ballantine was calling him a house negro (a term I find so odious that I can’t even put it into words. It offends me far, far, more than even Janeane Garofalo does and y’all know how much she offends me as a woman). He was called this hateful term merely because he didn’t jump on the Demonize Rush Limbaugh band-wagon and *gasp* chose not to spread libelous rumors and attribute malicious quotes, FALSELY, to Rush Limbaugh.
Yet, Rush is the racist one? Racist based on what? As Rush Limbaugh wrote in the WSJ today:
My racial views? You mean, my belief in a colorblind society where every individual is treated as a precious human being without regard to his race? Where football players should earn as much as they can and keep as much as they can, regardless of race? Those controversial racial views?
You know what IS Racist (the real kind, not the ™ kind )? Attacking anyone of color for the simple act of thinking independently and assuming that all black people should think the same way. As is calling him or her an Uncle Tom or somehow implying that he or she is a “race traitor” for actually looking at facts in a given situation and making their OWN judgment (people CAN do that, you know, Lefties) based on those facts, instead of automatically jumping on the race card. Wrongly. I find that disgusting and utterly reprehensible.
I hope Juan Williams will one day leave the Democrat party. It will be their loss and our gain. I don’t always agree with him, but he is a good and thoughtful man. Classy, bright, considers things with a truly open-mind and has more manhood and spine than one usually sees these days, sadly. Unfortunately for Mr. Williams, spine is obviously not welcome on the Left. If they were honest, part of their platform would be : Blind acquiescence and subservience only. Anyone with backbone, need not apply.
Please watch his response to Ballantine. Watch the entire clip above, if you have time, actually. Rev Hutcherson (former NFL player and very close friend of Rush Limbaugh’s) and Tammy Bruce are great too, as always.
As for Uncle Tom – if anything, Juan Williams is an Uncle Awesome. And Uncle Tom is another phrase that should be added to Godwin’s Law.
On Fox News Sunday, Juan Williams continues speaking real truth to power. From Newsbusters :
JUAN WILLIAMS, NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO: Let me just come go back to something else Mara [Liasson] said, “Oh, it’s a business decision, and people don’t make divisive statements.” I watch MSNBC sometimes, I see their talk show hosts, they’re mocking liberals, going on, this is Keith Olbermann…
MARA LIASSON, NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO: About football?
WILLIAMS: …about politics, right? Conservatives are terrible, they’re a bunch of jerks, blah-de-blah. And then he’s announcing the game. Nobody says, “Well, because he makes divisive statements he can’t announce an NFL game.” I don’t see that.
