    Honestly, if I knew there were 4 or 5 Muslim men on a flight ahead of time, I'd cancel my flight, lose the money and take the bus. Juan Williams, O'Reilly, all those journalists know there are no truly moderate Muslims. They stick together. They are dangerous and we'd be wise to be wary of them all. If there are truly moderate Muslims why have we not found Bin Laden. Ans: They will never give him up because they love him. He's their hero.

    All these lovey dovey liberals need to start living in the real world. It's a dog eat dog world, and when something walks like a duck, talks like a duck, it's probably a duck.

    Joy, Whoopie, Barbara need to start having at least one Muslim a day on their show, and ask them some tough questions. We'll see where that goes.

    Anyways, tldr the thread but how many conservatives were up in arms over this? How many of those cheered the sacking of Helen Thomas?
    There's no comparison between the two. Juan is not a bigot and Helen Thomas is.
    The better comparison would be between Shirley Sherrod and Juan Williams. Both were taken out of context and unjustly fired.
    However, Juan was fired because they didn't like him going on Fox. !.8 million from Soros may have had something to do with it too. Taking a statement of his out of context was just an excuse to get rid of him.

    It's not rational, it just is. What Williams did wrong was to make that comment, and then not clarify that he regrets that emotional response. Any of us can have a fear response. However, holding on to racial/ethnic/religious bias is wrong.
    You would have to know the whole context before and after, between O'Reilly and Williams. Williams was actually defending moderate muslims.

    LOL yes he's not a bigot he's just scared of Muslims. Nothing bigoted about that!

    That's not what he said, any more than Jesse Jackson said he was afraid of black people.

    He gets nervous, anxious, worried when ON A PLANE with them. He knows it's not logical and that most Muslims are good people.
    However, according to the polls, most people also have those same feelings or thoughts of 9/11 when flying with Muslims. Are there really that many bigots in America?

    Everything you just posted is wrong and you should feel very, very bad about it.

    Do you get nervous when you notice people in Muslim garb on your airplane?
    No, that would be silly.
    The last time I flew- when I went to see my son graduate from Basic- there were people in Muslim garb on my plane.
    My dad and I sort of joked that they might make other people- ignorant people- nervous.
    They definitely didn't make me nervous though.
