(Fox News!) Juan Williams Suggests Calls To Impeach Obama Have Racist Undertones

Fox News pundit Juan Williams on Sunday suggested that conservatives calling for President Obama's impeachment are racist given that they mostly come from white people.

During a "Fox News Sunday" panel, Heritage Foundation CEO Michael Needham said that while conservatives were concerned that Obama is "lawless," Democrats are pushing the impeachment rhetoric.

Williams then tore into Needham, explaining that conservative pundits and some elected officials have been pushing for impeachment.

“You listen to Michael, and you understand why there are lots of Republicans who think, ‘This man’s a demon, this guy’s awful, we got to get this guy out of here any way we can, he’s breaking the law,’” he said.

1. No doubt. But right/white wingers don't believe racism exists.

Amazing that they bask in such levels of hatred that they refuse to admit to.

Of course!

It drives these Tea people completely nuts that our head honcho, the Chief Executive, the Commander-in-Chief, is a black man. They fancy themselves as successors to the Confederacy, and if they can't have that, then Jim Crow.

And that it took a minority member of Fox News to notice makes it that much more tragic!

6. If you feel that way ( I don't doubt that you do) then walk away Mr. Williams.

The guy that signs your paycheck is a racist and you have been sitting there for 6 1/2 years. How much more are you going to take? Trust me, you will be able to support yourself and your family without selling out.

Some states outpeach other states. Georgia outpeaches them all.

As far as the Im-, In-, and Em- crowd goes, their intentions and motivations are all to clear, even if their spelling skills aren't.

16. Of course, RWers knows racism is happening, they still consider themselves the right to practise

Doing and saying anything they want. Obama does not play their stupid games, he is not letting them get the information to get out and they are mad now.

24. So, Williams says, conservatives calling for Obama's impeachment are 'mostly white.'

Duh, think McFly! Can it be because black conservatives are as plentiful as hens' teeth? Wake up and smell the condescension. I'm a minority with a Republican relative and I've seen how they practically pat her on the head and coo at her like she's a good girl who fetches them their slippers. If you start nipping their fingers, you'll find yourself in the dog house.

30. IMHO, all of this insanity pointed toward OUR president

is a warning to the American people. This is what we will do if you dare to ever elect another black man as our president. I was overjoyed when Barack Obama was elected. Now I see the evils of racism cloaked in the idiocy of the actions of those of like mind. I thought we had come so far. Boy was I stupid!

The video is better than the TPM article in that Williams has great shots about old white men being the only ones pushing the lawlessness and impeachment crap

Do you really think they wanted anything from you but skin tone and the patina of having been at NPR?
This is the group you chose to go with. Now you find out they are a bunch of racists? Que surprise, no?

Maybe some reporter due diligence may have been in order before hand.

42. heritage foundation is tax exempt.

perhaps a little campaign to write letters to the irs when a supposedly apolitical think tank ceo appears on teevee calling for a sitting president's impeachment.
does it get any more partisan?
