Skip to comments.Fired NPR analyst Juan Williams responds to video: "They are anti-intellectual"
Posted on 03/08/2011 8:25:39 PM PST by Do Not Make Fun Of His Ears
The fallout from the video conservative filmmaker James OKeefe released Tuesday morning has been devastating for NPR. However, Juan Williams, a former NPR analyst who was fired unjustly even according to NPR President Vivian Schiller, finally had his turn to sound off about the video, which apparently showed an NPR senior executive, Ron Schiller, making some disparaging remarks about the Tea Party, the Jewish people and Williams himself.

Let the scales fall from their eyes.
Obama has funded the community radio act.
I think it’s 1500 stations in the lower fm band, and he is going to fast track liberal applications.
The fix is already in. NPR wont go away and he has already funded 1500 new propaganda outlets
I hope Juan realizes how much he has been supported by Fox News, and how badly he’s been treated by the liberals over at NPR. What you might call “his people”...
His book not withstanding, Juan is a doofus.
Juan is now OUTSIDE the NPR tent, pissing IN, instead of the other way round.
And that is a good thing.
These people are salivating.
Please see my tag.
This is a head fake.
They are fixing to flood the spectrum.
NPR is the OLD acorn
See my posts.
We may apply for licenses, but they have this fast tracked to approve the broadcasters that suit their purposes.
BTW, I'm just as sick of seeing Juan's face as I am of seeing Rove's. He's all over the Fox business channel, too. The network really has him slaving away day and night on both channels for his milllion dollar salary. Does he ever have time to spend it?
De-fund the FCC. It's unconstitutional, and licensing just serves to protect the "Pravda" networks that are no longer competitive, such as ABCNBCCBS and so forth. Let industry associations sort out the frequency territories.
How good were the Founders? They musta had a crystal ball. (Actually, they just understood human nature.) More than 200 years later, there's nothing not authorized by the Constitution that's remotely necessary for the Feds to do.
While I believe that the rift these folks are opening with folks like Williams is significant, We cannot afford to lose sight of what these pricks are up to.
They see this local community radio bill as a fair exchange.
NPR is on our radar. Schiller himself says they dont need the federal funding to carry on.
Meanwhile, they will open 1500 Local stations to fill the campus heads full of mush and the rural areas.
WITH GOV FUNDING
Williams appears to be truly hurt. Can’t even imagine how deep that goes. He’s defended these people for years.
The bill passed in late Dec.
What we have to do is recognize the threat and get conservatives to apply for licensing.
They will shoot it down like DOMA, but we have at least see what they are up to and tie them up in court.
Shouldn’t this say, if I am taking the meaning right, “TOO liberal for mainstream”?
BTW, did you know that Voice of America has been defunded as beamed to Asia?
China is THE Broadcaster now and Obama had VOA shut down
One month ago
That may be so. But we’re awake now and the bills they pass will benefit those who are good stewards of our resources. The progressives are learning a valuable lesson—their positions are not secure as they once believed. James Okeefe, Hannah Jiles and Lila Rose are just the beginning of those willing to expose wickedness in high places.
We need to recognize their shenanigans and turn up the heat.
These are calculating people.
I didn’t know that. Thanks for posting. If VOA offered service like NPR I’m glad it has been stopped for now. Obama might become the modern age Balaam. His mission was to curse America but instead caused a blessing instead.
I can’t say it enough...We are awake now.
Yes they are without any doubt and have perfected their ability to lie and deceive with smoothness.
It’ll take a relentless people not giving up to remove their cover.
VOA has always been kinda NPR like
Chinese radio International positivity trys to get you to believe we all are friends.
My point is, Now WE DONT EVEN TRY to influence foreigners.
They aint working on asia now.
They are working on US
That’s what is startling.
Yeah, I picked up on that too. People in that frame of mind tend to have epiphanies. I think Mr. Williams is only now coming into a realization of who and what the people he used to work for really are. He was, after all, fired merely for having admitted that flying with people in Muslim dress made him nervous. That is not bigotry. What Schiller said, is.
I hope you’re right about his epiphany. I think Sean gave him wise counsel. Do you think he should sue or use that energy for better causes?
I think Juan needs to take a little quality time off and consider who he really is. The point at which you finally understand that the poseurs aren’t really intellectuals at all is the point at which you have to prove to yourself that you are. If he gets past it he’ll be a better man. IMHO.
David Horowitz was a hard core Marxist until the Black Panthers murdered his secretary. He became a flaming conservative.
Cancer hasn't converted Christopher Hitchens.
Juan Williams? Probably hasn't hit bottom yet. His lefty voice was worth a million smackers to Fox.
I’m listening. Please expand on your thoughts. We have got to turn this thing around. 2012 is the new rallying cry.
Good Grief! Is there no end?
Well, we need to explore applying for licenses and organize folks willing/capable of doing local conservative radio.
The libs will organize college yoots to run theirs.
I am thinking our best bet is the retired community.
We have the age old dilemma of, most conservatives don’t have time to protest as we have to go to work.
Even if we don’t start up stations, we should tie up the process with applications.
It’s extremely traumatic for some people to be fired. Juan appears to be one of those. But unlike most of us, he has the good luck to be able to go on tv and bash his old bosses! I’m loving it.
That's very bad news. The Kenyan Clown is determined to normalize all American relations with a disgusting totalitarian state.
He is quietly up to a lot of shenanigans.
