Juan Williams Defends Rush Limbaugh

I usually don’t agree with the opinion of Juan Williams.  My wife and I call him Whiny Juan because of his proclivity to Whine about issues.  Nothing personal on our part, that’s just what we seem to hear.

Mr. Williams was a guest on The O’Reilly Factor last night as the discussion about Rush Limbaugh’s bid to become a minority owner of the Rams fell flat.  He debated Warren Ballentine if it was valid to tag Rush as a racist. 

1970?  That’s a little weak.  If that is it, ok, that’s not a great thing but I’m not sure that rises to the level of racism.  Bad taste and insensitive, maybe.

Of course, that is just my opinion.

  1. In a healthy country populated with an intelligent, enlightened citizenry, Rush Limbaugh would today be standing on the bread line – right behind (or perhaps in front of) Sean Hannity, Michael “Savage” Wiener and Ann Coulter. He probably would have ended up as a used car salesman or a clerk in a liquor store. His opinion would not have been taken seriously by anyone except maybe a sympathetic bartender. Some bartenders are pretty good psychologists not to mention being fairly adept at feigning interest in the most boring of topics.

    There is a gentleman named Bill Vaughan who used to tend bar at the old Orange Inn Tap Room here in Goshen, New York. Heaven knows how many hours the poor guy spent listening to me waxing inebriate on all matter of subjects from the deplorable state of American politics to the age-old question as to who was the funniest of the two: Stan Laurel or Oliver Hardy? I would imagine that in a perfect society, no one other than a patient, world-weary and kindly mixologist would ever have bothered paying any attention to the opinions expressed by the likes of Rush Limbaugh.

    • Welcome back Tom. Thanks for commenting.

      I’m sorry that I don’t share your outlook on the country Tom. There are thinking people who, as you put it ” intelligent, enlightened citizenry,” listen to any and all of those people you listed (Rush, Hannity, Savage, Coulter, etc.).

      I read into your response the “I’m better than you” sentiment from the elite crowd. Since you are from Goshen, NY, hardly an elite capital in my mind, I assume this is your belief and not that of your neighbors. Maybe I’m wrong on that one.

      None of this has anything to do with the post. The video and subsequent commentary on my part dealt with the views of Juan Williams, black and a liberal, defending Rush.

  2. Williams can think what he wants. For so many years Limbaugh has spent his time on the radio mis-labeling or mis-characterizing others . Finally he had his judgment day.
