Juan Williams: Pure Liberal

In an interview with Howard Kurtz, Roger Ailes calls NPR, “the left wing of Nazism.” In this, I pretty much agree. This country is not Nazi, but it is highly fascistic, and I mean this literally—so think Mussolini, not Hitler. Political discourse in this country has been dragged so far right, that NRP is basically the liberal voice of fascist political discussion. Note that Ailes didn’t say that NPR was the left wing version of Nazism—just the left wing itself. This was no slip of the tongue. He knows well what he has helped this country become.

What I really want to talk about is Juan Williams though. I never get tired of talking about this shit-sack. Ailes said, that Williams was, “a pure liberal.” Now, I’m not sure what that means. It makes it sound like Roger Ailes used to pay Dungeons and Dragons. Maybe in his mind Williams is pure good and Sean Hannity is pure evil. Regardless, Williams is not liberal at all. From his reporting and commentary, he is right of center. Sure, on Faux News, he will come off as extremely liberal. That’s why Ailes hired him, not because, “I didn’t want him to have to call his wife and say we lost money.” Give me a fucking break! I do still listen to NPR from time to time and I am so glad that I will not have to hear Juan Williams pretending to be reasonable when he is spouting typically disproved conservative talking points.

Sound Familiar?

Have I been saying this for as long as I’ve been saying anything?
