Here is video of Michelle Malkin taking on Juan Williams on “Hannity,” as they discussed the radical “Occupy” Movement and the most recent protests around the country.
Juan Williams tried to defend the “Occupy” Movement by saying there are “racists” in the Tea Party Movement, just as there are extremists in the Occupy Movement. Michelle Malkin came unglued, calling Williams out and demanding evidence to back up that assertion. Eventually, Williams had to admit “I don’t have any evidence” of the claim by Democrats that some of their ranks were called the “N” word by Tea Party Activists during the ObamaCare struggle on Capitol Hill. The late Andrew Breitbart even offered $100,000 to anyone who could produce video evidence of that, and no one ever came forward.
Malkin made the case that the “Occupy” Movement is very different because it is advocating a violent “transformation” of the society. She closed the segment with this:
“There is no – absolutely no parallel between the peace-loving, taxpaying, hardworking people of the Tea Party Movement and the anarchist, pooh-flinging Marxist monkeys of the Occupy Movement. None whatsoever.”
In the wake of Newt Gingrich’s victory tonight in the South Carolina Primary, here is video of Fox News’ Bret Baier having some fun with Charles Krauthammer and Juan Williams by showing clips of them saying back in May and June of 2011 that Newt Gingrich’s campaign was “over,” and “done.”
Here is video from tonight’s South Carolina Fox News GOP Presidential Debate, where Newt Gingrich brought to crowd to its feet with his combative response to a Juan Williams question about “Food Stamps” and the “Work Ethic.” This is the first time in this Presidential cycle there has been a standing ovation. THE top moment of the debate.
Here is video of the Fox News Sunday Panel today where Juan Williams got really testy with Chris Wallace for suggesting the “Occupy Wall Street” Movement is not a net-plus for Democrats. Williams defended the movement and said it is. When Wallace eventually tried to move on to let other contributors weigh-in, Williams told Wallace he was not “playing fair.” Brit Hume and others then burst into laughter at the back-and-forth exchange.
Here is video of Bill O’Reilly and Juan Williams discussing the recent attack on Gov. Rick Perry over a hunting camp he and his family used that the Washington Post says had a large flat rock near the entrance with the word “Nig*erhead” painted on it. Perry says he and his family painted over the offensive word shortly after they started using the camp, but critics contend it was still there years afterward.
O’Reilly said he thought Herman Cain should have been more “circumspect” about criticizing Perry since he really does not know all the facts. Juan Williams defended Cain’s criticism of Perry, even though he admitted he really does not know the timeline either.
The two also went back and forth about Obama’s use of Class Warfare, and the bizarre Leftist protesters on Wall Street, with O’Reilly saying they don’t want to work, while Williams maintained they “can’t find jobs.”
Here is video of Karl Rove on with Juan Williams last night’s O’Reilly Factor, where he explained why he believes President Barack Obama will likely be defeated in 2012 in his bid fro re-election.
1. The Economy – it’s bad. 9.1% unemployment. Rove said no President has been elected since 1936 with unemployment at 7.2% or higher.
2. Obama has enormous problems with groups that are critical to his re-election.
3. Obama has “very unpopular policies.” ObamaCare and his handling of the deficit are very unpopular.
4. Obama has made the huge blunder of deciding to be a candidate way too early. He has forfeited the high ground of looking like a President at work and not just a politician (Rove never got to this point in the interview. He explained it in his WSJ article).
Needless to say, liberal Juan Williams did not agree with Rove, and the two went back and forth as to Obama’s chances for re-election. Rove did not say unequivocally that Obama will lose – but he strongly believes he is “likely to lose.”
Here is video from the Don Imus show this morning where Fox News’ Juan Williams admitted that if Sean Hannity had impersonated Herman Cain with an “Amos and Andy” voice – as liberal comedian Jon Stewart did recently – “he’d be out there barking with the dogs after they threw him out. Come on.”
But Jon Stewart gets away with it – because he is a liberal. Williams and Imus talked about the double-standard that exists today on how liberals and conservatives are treated on the issue of race.
The other aspect of this is that no one on the Left is outraged about what Stewart did because Herman Cain is a conservative! If he was a liberal Democrat running for President – there would be outrage all around.
Here is video of Bill O’Reilly tonight taking Juan Williams to task for saying the U.S. is guilty of “torture,” such as “pulling out teeth and eyeballs.” He made the comments on Fox News Sunday yesterday.
O’Reilly told Williams he has chided him before for making this kind of statement in public, and told Williams “it troubles me” that you keep doing it. Williams said he believes waterboarding is torture just as pulling teeth or gouging eyes.
O’Reilly said it is “insane” to compare waterboarding to “gouging somebody’s eye out or cutting their ear off.”
O’Reilly is absolutely right here, and he was right to call Williams on the carpet for his statements. I guess I was wrong about him just having a bad day. It appears he stands by his ridiculous comments.
Juan Williams had a bad day on Fox News Sunday. At least, I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt by calling it a bad day.
Here are two videos of Williams saying outrageous things. The first, I think he may not have even realized he was saying. He characterized the killing of Osama Bin Laden as “murder.” I hope that’s not what he meant, because the killing of Bin Laden was in a time of war, and against a man who has the blood of thousands of Americans on his hands.. It was not “murder” of an innocent person. NewsBusters has more.
The second video is more disturbing. This time he is opposing “enhanced interrogations” such as waterboarding, but he raises the specter of the United States “pulling out teeth and eyeballs,” when he knows very well that is not what the United States has done in terms of “enhanced interrogation methods.” He knows that with waterboarding, it only happened to three detainees, and it was done under a doctor’s supervision and no physical harm came to any of the detainees. It’s just wrong for him to make that kind of specious statement as a way to cloud the issue over enhanced interrogations. Gateway Pundit has more.
I’ve always considered Williams to be a sane liberal. But these statements are ridiculous, and Juan Williams knows better.
Here is video from the Fox News Sunday “Panel Plus” today where they discussed the 2012 GOP Field of candidates. Juan Williams commented how surprised he was that so many people thought Herman Cain was the clear winner of the first GOP Debate held in South Carolina this past Thursday night. But Williams said people at his hotel and elsewhere all seemed to have that sentiment.
Bill Kristol said he believes Newt Gingrich will announce his run for the Presidency this coming Wednesday, and he believes Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels will announce he is running for President in “two or three weeks.”
On Fox News Panel Plus today, Brit Hume goes back and forth with Juan Williams over how to best deal with the U.S. Budget Deficit: Raise taxes, or focus on a booming economy? Brit Hume argues effectively that a booming economy is the real answer to the problem we face – not raising taxes.
