Somebody emailed me this link to the video where Newt Gingrich decided to see how Juan Williams’ liver tasted:
Transcript and discussion after the fold.Well, a taste from the transcript:
[Juan] WILLIAMS: Speaker Gingrich, you recently said black Americans should demand jobs, not food stamps. You also said poor kids lack a strong work ethic and proposed having them work as janitors in their schools. Can’t you see that this is viewed, at a minimum, as insulting to all Americans, but particularly to black Americans?
[Newt] GINGRICH: No. I don’t see that.
Look, I like Juan Williams, often despite of himself. I think that he makes a good-faith effort to deny what every liberal instinct in his body tells him about conservatives sometimes and actually treat us like human beings. And the Online Left whines about him a lot, which is always a plus in my book. Still. Williams deliberately walked into a buzz-saw there – especially since the venue was South Carolina; the state GOP is really not interested in being lectured on racial harmony by outsiders, particularly since they just elected an Indian-American woman Governor and an African-American man to Congress. So I can’t be too upset that it ended badly for Juan: the man knew the risks.
