Insane: Liberals claim Gingrich calling Juan Williams by first name racial code
Examiner.com ^ | 4/20/13 | Joe Newby

Posted on 04/22/2013 12:26:36 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

Is it now racist to call Juan Williams by his given name? Apparently so, according to liberals like radio talk show host and Fox contributor Geraldo Rivera and MSNBC's Chris Matthews, who seem to have acquired the gift of determining racism simply by the way a person's name is spoken.

Rivera was "analyzing" Newt Gingrich's response to Juan Williams' question at last Monday night's Fox News debate.

"When you listen to the way Newt Gingrich says Juan William’s first name, he says it like it’s a racial epithet, I swear to God, that’s my impression," Rivera said.

He then played Williams' question followed by Gingrich's response.

Geraldo Rivera falsely claims Newt Gingrich's use of "Juan" racist . Geraldo Rivera falsely claims Newt Gingrich's use of "Juan" racist.

"There is Gingrich being filled with disdain, utter disdain for the only man of color maybe in that whole room. That room was very, very, uh, reminiscent of another era in American politics," Rivera said.

Actually, that was Gingrich being filled with utter disdain for the question Williams posed to him.

The way clowns like Rivera and Matthews obsess about race convinces me that methinks they protest too much. When are these a**hats going to come out of the closet, so to speak, and confront their OWN racist attitudes?

Okay, Jerry. Anything you say. I think it was racist of you to exploit Al Capone’s vault.

We say Juan Williams so everyone knows who we’re talking about - like Walter William and Walter E Willims.

If we just said Williams things sure could get confusing.

In answer to your question, Dems are race-obsessed. It is in their party’s DNA. They are the party of slave-economics, lynch mobs, fire hoses, race repression, and in modern times they continue to be obsessed with the subject.

If you are race obsessed, then there is a party for you and its the DNC. Because they are obsessed with it, because it is the center of their universe, they think everyone is like them. Its impossible for them to conceive of a world in which character and philosophy matter and race does not.

As I am reading this, WABC airs a promo for Geraldo’s radio show with Geraldo saying you can’t say “illegal alien” because it’s racist.

They don’t really see racism everywhere, it’s just a useful tool for them to use against those who are too cowed by PC to turn it against them.

What are we all suppose to call Juan.

That's his name. He didn't call Juan, amigo.

Geraldo said the other day to OReilly that we as a society should not use the word negro or homosexual. Add Juan to his list. (head to desk)

No matter how you say his name, Juan is still a liberal turd.

There are code words and then there are dog whistles. This is one of the latter.

I despise Newt Gingrich, but trying to hang a racist label on him is just stupid and dishonest. One thing he isn’t is a bigot.

"When you listen to the way Newt Gingrich says Juan William’s first name, he says it like it’s a racial epithet, I swear to God, that’s my impression," Rivera said.

Rivera seems to have some mental problems ... paranoia, perhaps. He should seek help, rather than slandering folks.

If the kind of thing Gingrich said is a ‘racist dog whistle’, how is it that these critics are always able to hear it?

They truly are insane.

Conservatives and whites really need to start playing this game with them. We need to get all persnickety about the terms which are used to describe us as groups. They won’t want to go along with us at first, and will attempt to mock us out of it, but we need to dig in until they’re forced to allow us in on this. If we’re just persistent and appear to be dead serious, they’ll have to give in. (The hard part is being persistent, conservatives and whites are terrible at not caving at the first hint of “white guilt” thrown at us). We need to be as slippery at being grouped, defined and courted as the left is.
