Fox News political analyst and “Special Report” panelist Juan Williams said in an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas that mainstream media outlets “stab” and “kill” dissenting voices.
Williams was fired from National Public Radio in 2010 after saying he sometimes gets “nervous” when seated on an airplane with Muslims, while making a broader point about the importance of religious tolerance.
“I always thought it was the Archie Bunkers of the world, the right-wingers of world, who were more resistant and more closed-minded about hearing the other side,” he said. “In fact, what I have learned is, in a very painful way — and I can open this shirt and show you the scars and the knife wounds — is that it is big media institutions who are identifiably more liberal to left-leaning who will shut you down, stab you and kill you, fire you, if they perceive that you are not telling the story in the way that they want it told.”
It’s not just the big media institutions. Intolerance for diversity is a modern progressive trait. Look at the way the boys at DailyKos reacted to Hillary supporters back in 2007-08. Look at the way the Vile Progs treated the Clintons and everyone else associated with the DLC. Look at how they treat even mild criticism of Obama.
That’s how they treat people who are mostly on their side. Like the Rush song says, “Conform or be cast out”.
Wingnuts will argue with you all day long and twice on Sunday, but they generally don’t try to shut you down and keep you from speaking. When is the last time a bunch of Tea Partiers tried to interrupt a Democratic speaker and keep him/her from speechifying?
