Ice Cubes in Hell – Republicans Rejecting Trump Racism

After 60 years of dancing with the Devil Racism – Republicans are finally beginning to find they can’t stand the stench anymore. One of the best known and widely respected (at least in neo-conservative circles) pundits is Charles Krauthammer. Charles, like any of the pundit class (of any political stripe) is right about some things, and consistently wrong about others. He is consistently wrong about foreign policy, and like most conservatives despises the Clintons. But he is usually on key about domestic and social issues, even if you disagree with his reasoning. Quite frankly, he is one of the few “thinkers” left on the right which has been overrun with plastic media personalities and sycophants.

Here,  Charles takes on Trump racism head on.

Juan Williams Blasts NPR

Jusan Williams of “Faux News”…

Accuses NPR of being an “all white operation”?

When did they discover Glenn Beck’s Daddy was black? Bill O’Reilly? Hannity? The “blonde bombe” squad?

Juan Williams, Fox News contributor, blasts former employer NPR as ‘all-white operation

Ousted NPR pundit Juan Williams ripped his former employer — which is taking heat after an embarrassing sting — for showing the “worst of white condescension” when it fired him last year.

“I think when it comes to NPR’s decision to, without any reason, throw me out the door, I think that for them, especially for some of the people who created NPR, it’s an all-white operation,” said Williams, who works for Fox News.

Williams said NPR “felt they had never had much success” with black or Hispanic journalists and did better with white women.

Williams made the comments to the Huffington Post before Tuesday’s release of a sting video that showed an NPR exec calling Tea Partiers “racist.”

The website published the interview Thursday as part of a series that examines black journalists’ experiences in the media industry.

NPR canned Williams, 56, in October after he told “The O’Reilly Factor” he gets “nervous” when he sees people in airplanes wearing “Muslim garb.”

NPR has said Williams’ comments about Muslims “undermined his credibility as a news analyst.”

About the firing, Williams said: “I think they acted very unfairly, and largely in a condescending manner…”

“If you stop and think about some of the things that were said in the midst of that controversy, the idea that I should have a relationship with a psychiatrist or I need a publicist to tell me what to say … It just suggests … they think I was sort of some sort of infantile mentality, or childlike person…”

“I think the worst of white condescension to black people was evident in some of those comments.”
