Fox faux liberal, Eboni Williams, took time out from endorsing right-wing memes about Muslims to take a swipe at Hillary Clinton for trying to avoid Islamophobia.
The entire Hannity show last night was a special whose title tells you everything you need to know about it: “Islamists among us.”
In this segment, Hannity put forth the familiar right-wing complaint about Democrats for saying that Muslim terrorists do not represent Islam. “Their refusal to identify the enemy is putting you, the American people, at risk.”
Hannity played clips of the supposedly dangerous remarks, including one from Hillary Clinton: “We are at war with violent extremism, we are at war with people who use their religion for purposes of power and oppression and yes, we are at war with those people but I don’t want us to be painting with too broad a brush.”
Funny, he did not play a clip of George W. Bush saying, “Ours is not a campaign against the Muslim faith. Ours is a campaign against evil.”
Nor did Hannity ever come up with any evidence as to why these words put any Americans in danger.
WILLIAMS: I don’t understand why this is so confusing for so many people, including what Hillary Clinton said in the sound bite, Sean. You know, no one is painting with a broad brush and it’s actually saying that Americans are not capable of distinguishing between law-abiding, traditional Muslims in this country, which there are thousands and millions of, and radical, extreme terrorism that pose a very real and present threat to Americans in this country. And I believe that with our intelligence and with our greater humanity, we can make that distinction, Sean. …I wish that people would stop putting their heads in the sand on one end and on the other side fear mongering because those extremes get us nowhere safer and closer to a solution.
…We have to call it out for what it is.
No one is painting with a broad brush? Really? What does Williams call Trump’s call for a ban on all Muslims? Part of how he “understands the problem,” as she recently said? And how does Williams explain (or justify) the spike in hate crimes against Muslims?
As for Williams' claim that she wishes people would stop "fear mongering," then why didn't she call out any of the fear mongering going on right in this show? I think we know why a paid contributor would rather attack Clinton than Fox News bigotry under her nose.
Sadly, the imam on the panel seemed unable to clearly articulate a good argument for his own side.
Of course, Hannity didn’t challenge a word Williams said. He was probably too busy booking her for another hit on his show.
Watch it below, from the January 14 Hannity.
The suits need to replace him with that blonde nooby. She can triple the ratings in Hannocchio’s time slot.
Eboni better take off that weave on her head, and stop acting like a noorpean. She’s the type of broad who would sell out her community for Nixon Trainee Ailes’ paycheck.
The mouthpieces at this worthless network are willing to sell their souls and principles for that lucrative paycheck.
