Posted on 08/03/2014 11:16:46 AM PDT by Nachum
A Fox News Sunday panel that began skeptically of the GOP chatter about impeaching President Barack Obama erupted with charges of racism and lawlessness, as Fox contributor Juan Williams and Heritage Action leader Michael Needham went at it over the motivations behind the calls for impeachment.
Both National Journal editor Ron Fournier and Williams called out Needham for calling Obama lawless.
You listen to Michael and you understand why lots of Republicans think [Obama's] a demon, Williams said. Lots of people in the minority community see it as an attack against the first black President. They think its unfair, and so its gonna spur their turnout in the midterms, which is going to be critical in several races.
If you just break it down as a matter of political analysis and say who is this group [calling for impeachment], it reminds me that the Republican Party has become almost a completely white party, Williams continued. The people who want him impeached are all white, theyre all older, and guess what theyre all in the far right wing of the Republican Party.
He might as well have just said theyre all racists, Needham objected. Thats ridiculous .Youre the one demonizing people who are concerned about the fact that we have a crisis of Constitution.
Look, we can have a principled argument about President Obamas actions and use of executive actions, but you called him lawless, as if hes an outlaw, as if hes riding the range and we gotta go get that guy, Williams said.

(if you can stand it)
FOX “news” - the voice of Obama, Romney and Soros
has one (1) conservative on their panel this week,
and they will probably replace his “offensiveness”
with the hyperliberal Brit Hume.
Fox “news” is a joke in its effort to protect
Obama and Romney (two sides of the same sick statist coin).
Quit watching five plus ago now. When you have become MSLSD-lite, you’re dead to me. I do miss Gutfield, though.
I watch only Fox News. I can’t stand any other news channel.
I have a hard time putting up with Juan Williams and Jhemu Green. Rest of the talking heads are OK.
My questions to the Rat would be: So because Obama is black, you feel he is exempt from laws and the Constitution? If not, which ones should he adhere too?
When you have no rational argument, accuse your opponent of racism, bigotry, etc., as a defense. Typical Saul Alinsky tactic. Juan, why not simply pull your liberal head out of Obama’s ass, and then you might actually start thinking as an American once more, rather than being a tool for a Marxist scumbag.
"We moved our base camp last night and were now positioned literally
within feet of the river. Have been sitting here watching the border
patrol patrolling in their riverboats all night and all morning..."
Juan, Juan, aren't you forgetting Bill Clinton? Was it not the expressed opinion of many in your community that William Jefferson Clinton deserved the title of "first black President" and isn't it illogical to have 2 firsts? Make up you mind before Hillary makes it up for you!
I only watch the Bill Hemmer and Martha Show and Shepard Smith ,when Shepard Smith is not there ,surprisingly Shepard is not there very often
And was a Palace Guard media spearcatcher (D-AP) for the Clinton White House during the impeachment wars. Fournier was ALWAYS taking one for Team Democrat back in those days.
Sad to say I haven’t watched FNC in months - and seeing Juan appear everywhere was one of the reasons.
I’m down to talk radio (Rush, Levin) and Freerepublic.
Of course they do...they're always a victim. Oh...by the way...he's not black.
Barack the Kenyan isn’t going to be able to hide behind the “race card” forever.
Jonathan Turley describes the Kenyan as “lawless”. Juan is a pinhead.
Thank you for the sober points.
Romney would have been held to a much higher standard regarding the Constitution than Obama would have. I can guarantee you that while he is a RINO, the news networks would be on him like fire ants for every policy he had. None of the race card.
Romney should not run again and should never have run in the first place. He’s horrible and it makes me sick to see that he believes he can buy the nomination this time around too.
That said, I voted for him, because ANY GOP president would not make the type of appointments or get the type of power that Obama has gotten. The Dems are very dictatorial and Stalinist in their programs and behavior, and in Obama they finally found a figurehead who is ruthless and vindictive enough to simply ignore the Constitution and do whatever the radical left wants him to do.
Juan, Obama repeatedly not abiding by the law means he is lawless...it doesn’t mean that he rides horses. And even if he did ride horses, that doesn’t make those who notice he doesn’t follow the law ‘racists’.
I can’t stand Jhemu Mu.
Wow, the comment section reminds me of the DUmp.
You listen to Michael and you understand why lots of Republicans think [Obama’s] a demon, Williams said. Lots of people in the minority community see it as an attack against the first black President......”
Well Juan...perhaps NOW you can see WHY the Democrat Party ran Obama over Hillary Clinton in 2008. The Race card trumps all, and you are their useful idiot.
For 95% of blacks the ONLY thing that matters is obama is seen as black,therefore any and all criticism MUST be racist.I say this knowing several hardworking black people who act very conservative in their personal lives BUT you cannot speak ill of obama to them.
And then there are all the “white guilt” fools who prove they are not racist by accepting and applauding horribly bad presidential actions and policies that they would never tolerate coming from a white man.
Well, I agree Obama is a racist and lawless...
Yep Fox is big govt garbage. They love the lawless
GTFO the plantation Juan-hole...
Is Professor Jonathan Turley an older, white far right conservative?
When the man in the Oval Office was put there primarily because of his race, and because his color "benefits" the party and protects him from impeachment and justifiable legal action, then he and the people who were responsible for pulling the strings to get him in that position are the racists.
Of course he’s lawless, look at the border, the irs, to start, why don’t more minorities see this and question Obama ?
They live here too, do they want to see the whole place crumble? Where do they think there going to be?
That’s it for me and Mediaite.
Tired of my posts being pulled for no discernable reason.
Even my post asking for clarification gets pulled. f’em
You're too late. Too many people like you sat on their butts, or voted for some other looser, and we now have Obama for two and a half more years.
Glad to see that some blacks have gotten over racism and are now calling men born to white woman, black.
Bret Baier won’t put up with Fourniers crap, so Fournier doesn’t even try for the most part. Fournier almost comes off as fair when he is on the panel Mon-Fri for Special Report.
With Wallace, Fourniers knows it’s Liberals running wild on the Sunday show.
Problem is, all our pointing out the games Fox plays with its faux conservatism and blatant promotions of Marxist and lefties guests and regulars just makes the network preen and prance all the more...as in, "see how the Far Right (translated 'conservatives') moans and complains.....we here at Fox News are certainly doing things just right if each side is so unhappy with us."
Keep in mind that Juan represents the group think of the black racist progressive left.
We would do well to listen carefully to what he says because they (the communists) will be screaming it to justify any wrong they choose to have their way.
We are where we are because the GOP and Lincoln emancipated them, slaughtering thousands of Sons of the Founders in the process, and then refused to repatriate them back to where they were snatched from.
150 years later and American society has devolved into the free stuff army, voting in marxists, redistributing taxpayer wealth , waging violent race war on the streets, and now bringing in reinforcements from central america to finish the job.
The Right either fundamentally transforms the country in 2016 right back to where it was before this degenerate communist son of a whore seized power, or it's over.
This is the last chance the Right is going to get.

Has the GOP become the party of income tax payers?
Unless he runs against Hillary.
Since he's forced on us and he's all over us perpetually like white on rice, I'll get my commie propaganda elsewhere for a while (I know, I know, I just made a racist statement, lol).
There's plenty of interesting Marxists on Fox to chose from, and Juan has worn out any welcome he ever had.He's become an aggravating bore, to put it bluntly.
The Fox News Hour with Chris Wallace is sounding more like MSNBC with Al Sharpton. Last week it was that moron George Will preaching how we should assimilate any and all illegals. Today they had NPR throwaway Juan Williams, Ron Fornier, some lib woman from the WSJ and Chris the snake Wallace ambushing the guy from the Heritage Assoc. it was absoluely nauseating and not worth watching.
