Liberal Media Will 'shut you down, stab you, kill you' if you disagree

Fox News political analyst and “Special Report” panelist Juan Williams said in an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas that mainstream media outlets “stab” and “kill” dissenting voices.

Williams was fired from National Public Radio in 2010 after saying he sometimes gets “nervous” when seated on an airplane with Muslims, while making a broader point about the importance of religious tolerance.

“I always thought it was the Archie Bunkers of the world, the right-wingers of world, who were more resistant and more closed-minded about hearing the other side,” he said. “In fact, what I have learned is, in a very painful way — and I can open this shirt and show you the scars and the knife wounds — is that it is big media institutions who are identifiably more liberal to left-leaning who will shut you down, stab you and kill you, fire you, if they perceive that you are not telling the story in the way that they want it told.”

Catch the rest of the Ginni Thomas’s interview with Juan Williams this week exclusively on The Daily Caller.

 

Juan Williams is a Fox News political analyst. He is the author of several books including "Enough: The Phony Leaders, Dead-End Movements, and Culture of Failure That Are Undermining Black America--and What We Can Do About It" and "Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate."

Leaning too far to the left or the right is never a good thing.  I prefer my middle-of-the road mentality because it gives me an excellent vantage point to form well-balanced opinions.  At this time in America I feel the  pendulum has swung too far to the left.  Therefore, I somewhat agree with his statement because unless you share the liberal opinions of the day, you are met with total and utter ridicule.

 For all of you biased left wing liberals, Juan Williams happens to be a big Obama supporter, and believes in a lot of social programs.  He is a very intelligent man.  Did any of you bother to click on The Daily Caller link and then click on the video to watch the interview, thus getting the comment above in full context?  Of course you didn't.....

He was already a democratic contributor to Fox News.  He was appearing on the O'Reilly show, and the discussion was about religious tolerance and Muslims.  He simply made an honest comment that he gets a little nervous on planes when he sees Muslims in full garb, then went on to support Muslims.  He wasn't attacking them.  It's perfectly understandable, and most people in this country feel the same way.

By the next morning, NPR called him on the phone and fired him.  Apparently, their employees aren't allowed to air their own feelings if they don't support the agenda of the station.  Of course, in the long run, it worked out just great for Juan.  He has a much better job with Fox now, and earns a hell of a lot more than he did with NPR.

 I'll bet you didn't watch the interview either, did you?  He may have been a little over dramatic, but I'm sure that being stabbed in the back by his employers and the rest of the liberal media felt just the way he described it.
