Newt Gingrich – Hypocritical Cock

Juan Williams, recently fired NPR pundit and self-inflated civil rights icon, was canned for saying that he feels nervous when he sees a Muslim on an airplane. It was clearly a bigoted comment, no different in form or content than, “I get nervous when I see a black man walking towards me on the street.”
Juan tried to justify his remarks as being honest and, in the wake of 9/11, reasonable. As though one might well say that the comment about the black man on the street is reasonable in the wake of race riots.
Both comments ascribe qualities and characteristics to an individual based solely on membership in an identifiable group; neither contain any inherently logical connection between membership in the group and the fear. Thus the fear is irrational, the feeling is the result of prejudice, and the comments are both properly labeled bigoted.
NPR made a decision that such commentary was inappropriate for a senior editor and terminated his contract.
Fox News immediately hired Williams at a substantial increase in pay – massive coup for FNC. Now when they engage in their regular race-baiting, Southern Strategy style bullshit, they can say, “Racist? We’re not racist. We have a black man working for us who wrote books about civil rights.”
This, of course, is no different than some Antebellum matron saying, “Why, we ain’t racist. We let Kizzy sleep in the Big House right in the Colonel’s bed!”

Of course, as it must, it gets worse. Bill O’Reilly and Newt Gingrich have called for NPR to have its funding cut for violating Williams’ free speech rights.
Firstly, this demonstrates a shocking misunderstanding of the right to free speech. Williams is free to say whatever the fuck he wants…and NPR is perfectly entitled to fire him for saying it. NPR is not the government; they did not and do not prevent Williams from saying anything he likes. They are not, however, obligated to continue employing anyone.
Secondly, it’s one of the biggest displays of fucking hypocrisy in the history of two-faced fucking ever.

“The U.S. Congress should investigate NPR and consider cutting off their money,” [Gingrich] said. “Every listener to NPR should be enraged that there’s this kind of bias against an American.”

This kind of bias? Against an American?
Sweet fucking jumped up Jesus on skis! Fox News is concerned about BIAS? The channel that shouts down anyone who dares to offer an opinion that in any way contradicts the constant barrage of anti-liberal, anti-progressive, anti-Democratic, anti-Obama yammering that emanates from their entire stable of bobblehead idiots 24 hours/day…? THAT Fox News??
The same Fox News that employs Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, and regularly features Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, and a cast of wingnut screeching ultra-conservative theocrats? THAT Fox News??

Un-fucking-believable. These bastards have balls the size of watermelons, no shame, and are utterly free from anything remotely resembling self-awareness. They’re either ignorant, stone liars or both…and they’re fucking PROUD of it.
