There is nothing bigoted at all, with a remark that was sincere and honest, but come on now we all are use to this stuff now. Are we going to track down all the people i am on planes with who feel the exact same way, but don't share their thoughts as honest and sincere as he did. Infact some of the people i meet, say things that put what Juan did to shame, are you going to track them down, and fire them from their jobs, or make life miserable for them. Hey look, right or wrong he was sincere in telling his views and the truth, if the truth gets us in trouble, do we now surpress our feelings.

My use of the word "token" Democrat in referring to Faux News is not just meant for Juan, it's meant for someone like Beckel or Caddell too.
Just watch---they will be fired next from any liberal place they may work.

Now any liberal that appears on FOX news has to be very careful. What is our country coming to? I thought only Communists regimes censor people's comments so much.

My thoughts exactly. Juan expressed his views in a rational way that could have brought more to the left. People like Maddow and Olberman just turn people off by spewing. Big mistake on their part. They should be outraged as well.

Shows how openminded they are.

That's different. Obama isn't employed by Faux News.

If Juan Williams worked for MSNBC, you wouldn't hear a peep from all these good conservatives who have suddenly become concerned about censorship and rights..

This is getting more outrageous by the minute.

Anybody else hear this, or am I hearing things and need to see a "psychiatrist" myself???

The deeper they dig their own grave, the faster their death will come at NPR

Well, if there's any upside to this, it's that it occurred during NPR's fundraising week.

I suspect many will make their thoughts known with a firm closing of the wallet.

Beckel will never be fired by any liberal group because of how he behaves on Fox. Caddell doesn't work for any liberals but he is detested by liberals all over the place. He was a Democrat at one time and lost his liberalness for some reason. I love to hear him cutting them to pieces.

You are correct... Obama does not work for MSNBC. (Although it seems like he does.)

It will take a large group of suddenly snapping closed wallets to equal the $5million that Spooky Dude just gave NPR to get their support in killing off Beck and Fox.

Caddell not only isn't a liberal, he's not even a Democrat. He left the party around 20 years ago

Odd that Faux packages him as something he's not...
