Williams now famously began his remarks thusly: "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."
As Andrew Sullivan said about that statement, “No, Juan, what you just described is the working definition of bigotry.”
And Fox added him to their roster of pinhead bigots with a $2 million contract. Any more proof needed?
NPR, what took you so long?
And so, good riddance Juan Williams. Juannie, we wish we hardly knew ye.
