The Mugging of Juan Williams: A Progressive Morality Play

The public mugging of Juan Williams and the subsequent despicable comments made about him by his former employer, Vivian Schiller, the CEO of NPR, offers a teachable moment for all of those middle-of-the road moderates and their liberal-leaning sidekicks.  Williams’ abrupt and very public termination from NPR, accompanied by the arrogant sneers of its CEO, has provided a propitious wakeup call for the guileless do-goodies clustered just a few degrees Left of the political median strip.

Certainly it was a very loud and clear clarion call for Mr. Williams, who seemed shocked and dazed by the venom spewed forth upon his character by a leading representative of the elite progressive politburo.  But as many of us former Lefties could have told you, Juan, the American Soviet Socialist Empire has no place for the likes of a passe liberal like you.

It’s not often that America gets a glaring glimpse of the pro-regressive establishment all decked out in their au naturale.  The preening Progs prefer to enter stage Left in full phony plumage, complete with their happy, harmonious, hands-around-the world grease paint smeared garishly across their two-faced facade.  But when NPR’s Ms Schiller addressed her adoring audience to relay the rigorous rooting out of a ‘racist’ from within the NPR feathered nest, she couldn’t conceal her utter contempt for this liberal black man who dared to fraternize with the detested infidels at Fox News.

Juan Williams’ crime was not only that he gave voice to a very human feeling, but that he did so while in the company of The Other.  By consorting with a conservative network, Williams validated the right of these heretics to voice their opinions and proclaim their values in violation of the Gaia-sanctified truth that has been handed down to the progressive chosen ones.  Humanizing the Other and breaking with the lock-step groupthink of the NPR propaganda machine were heinous crimes that could not go unpunished.

So take heed all you middling moderates out there and those of you who prefer to drink a liberal lite brew.  The progressive purge is in full swing.  Dare to disagree with even one of their pet precepts, and make no mistake, you will be eliminated.  There is no compromise with these smug, self-righteous fanatics.  Like John McCain’s appeasing conservatism, Juan Williams’ brand of ‘let’s make a deal’ liberality is of another place and time.  For if this morality play teaches us anything, it is this simple lesson: ‘Crossing the Aisle’ is dead.

    I hear you! I am also an RN and I worked ICU, there is nothing meaner than an ICU nurse! I am used to going into battle at work, not at my treasured workouts! I do believe it is imperative to respond calmly. Your responses are excellent and I do plan to confront her. For all my bravado I am not good at confrontation, but I am getting better. I must say that I do have the utmost respect for you and what you are up against! I have told so many people about your blog. The response is interesting, it is one of confusion. How could a lesbian be conservative? I just press on, and say she expresses my views better than I do! I am also sorry that it has made you battle ready, but as my experience as an ICU nurse has taught me, we do what we have to do for the greater good! Thanks for all that you do, you inspire me!

    • Thanks for the kind words, Mary. And I have a sister who is an RN and who used to manage an ICU, so I know how tough nurses have to be to get the job done every day. Best of luck in dealing with that situation. Would love to know how it all turns out.

    This has to be my biggest gripe with the Dems, they are so intolerant! The other day I was on my weekly bike ride with my friends. I had a very spirited discussion with one of my dear friends. Several people over heard us. After our ride, we met up with the rest of the group. One of the people who had over heard our conversations told my very liberal friend what we were discussing. Her comment, my liberal friend,was, “Good thing I didn’t hear this or I would have run her off the road!” I was so hurt, I thought, REALLY, you would do me bodily harm because of my views? I listen to her blather ALL the time and never once have I threatened her life! I am still trying to figure out how to address this with her.

    • That’s a shame, Mary. I also get this kind of crapola from so-called liberal folks. My usual response to such remarks is to nicely and sweetly (but firmly) confront these folks with their own supposed values. My standard repertoir of responses include: That’s was a really sad and mean-spirited thing to say; Do you really have that much hate in your heart; Why would you want to demonize people you’ve never met; Isn’t that steretyping and intolerant; Perhaps you should look at the hate in your own heart before you project it onto others; That sounds very angry and irrational; I have no intention of justifying my political beliefs to you or anyone else–if you’re uncomfortable with them or me, that’s your problem; That remark you just made explains why I’m a conservative; Come on, you’re better than that.

      Moving within lesbian social circles tends to make one rather battle-ready.

    How much do I love TLC (and you)? I am in Bangkok; it is 4 in the morning (don’t have a clue what day it is) and I am reading your blog.

    Outstanding post!
