When Helen Thomas lost her job for saying Israel should get out of Palestine, she was "anti-Semetic" and it was "OK" that she lost her job and they didn't defend her right to free speech:
When Rich Sanchez lost his job for suggesting Jews run the media, he was "anti-Semetic" and it was "OK" that he lost his job and they didn't defend his right to free speech:
When Octavia Nasr of CNN lost her job for TWEETING about a late Hezbollah leader, she was "anti-Semetic" and it was "OK" that she lost her job and they didn't defend her right to free speech:
When Juan Williams lost his job for saying Muslims on airplanes make him uneasy, rightwing media says he "lost his right to free speech", they launch an all-out attack on NPR, and in less than 24 hours he was instantly BEAMED over to FOX "news" for a job! Why didn't FOX "news" hire Helen Thomas, Rick Sanchez, and Octavia Nasr 24 hours later? BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T BASH MUSLIMS!!!
Beam me over to FOX "news", Scotty!!!
Juan Williams will be right at home on Fox News: Where you can bash Islam with impunity
"Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous," - Juan Williams.
No, Juan, what you just described is the working definition of bigotry. - Andrew Sullivan
You know I'm not a bigot, Bill, but........
Right on queue: a Republican ready to introduce a bill to defund NPR...can you say "THIS WHOLE THING WAS STAGED"??? How long does it take to write a bill? When did Juan Williams actually start negotiating his contract with FOX "news"? Before this act?
Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) said Friday he will introduce a bill to defund NPR and PBS.
Where's Ari Fleischer on this one??? Hiding?
Ari Fleischer: Fire Helen Thomas
The BIGGER media picture: I believe this was staged to keep Muslims in the U.S. media, because THE MOSQUE THE MOSQUE THE MOSQUE died down. You're being played like a fiddle again!!! Juan Williams got a job at FOX "news" in a couple of hours? Or did he have the job already and they staged this whole thing? Do you really think Juan Williams is this stupid? Did anyone ask, "Juan, tens-of-millions of people believe the U.S. government and the Mossad did 9/11, so why are you afraid of Muslims on airplanes?"??? Just like THE MOSQUE THE MOSQUE THE MOSQUE, this was staged to keep the myth alive that Muslims did 9/11.
Forget the past...only if you're a Republican!!!
And here's MORE hypocrisy from the right: when you bring up things like Rand Paul worshipping Aqua Buddha and Christine O'Donnell being a witch or George W. Bush wrecking the country (see: 9/11, the first bankster bailout, the Iraq War, the Afghanistan War, etc...), that was "in the past"...we have to "look forward"...they're "personal attacks". But we had to hear for HALF A CENTURY - I SAID HALF A CENTURY - ABOUT CHAPPAQUIDDICK!!! That was "relevant", the past was "important to show character", "people on the left would like nothing more than to bury the past"!!! I'm just wondering how STUPID rightwing media thinks we are.
