Video: Michelle Malkin takes on Juan Williams over comparisons between the Occupy movement and the Tea Party

posted at 12:01 pm on May 3, 2012 by Morgen Richmond

Hot Air’s Boss Emeritus was on Hannity last night, facing off against Juan Williams on a discussion segment dealing with the Occupy protests on Tuesday. In defense of the violent behavior of the occupiers, Williams attempted to compare the movement to the Tea Party. The result was predictably one-sided, but highly entertaining nonetheless. Michelle at her very best, via Gateway Pundit:

If it wasn’t for his baseless attacks on the tea party, I’d almost feel a little sorry for Juan Williams. He was outmatched to begin with and he’s really in a position here of trying to defend the indefensible. To support the Occupy movement in any way is to support anarchy, and orchestrated chaos and violence. This is a movement founded on anarchist principles, and led by anarchists and other radical leftists who openly call for the destruction of capitalism and the political system which supports it.

To compare it to the Tea Party is really an insult to both movements. Tea partiers abhor violence, and the bulk of the energy behind the movement is directed at demanding more fiscally responsible behavior from government, and restoring the freedoms and institutions which have made this country great. The aim of the occupiers is to tear down the system from within, and replace it with mob rule. They encourage the presence of revolutionary communists and black bloc anarchists within their midst, knowing full well that violence will ultimately be required to achieve their aims.

Restore and preserve versus tear down and destroy. The contrast could not be more clear and it’s a disgrace that people who consider themselves to be mainstream Democrats would support or defend a movement as transparently anti-American as this.

Malkin 1, Williams 0.

(Update: fixed the headline.)

Michelle,

says hi.

APACHEWHOKNOWS on May 3, 2012 at 5:29 PM

These people are maniacs. Idiots. Some of them are domestic terrorists, violent vandalizing rioters.

Brian1972 on May 3, 2012 at 4:35 PM

Ok – ‘these people’ – so you mean most, if not all.
You lost me for good at ‘terrorists’.
Later.

verbaluce on May 3, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Yo,

verbaluce

Keep the zombie time site to review from time to time.

The evidence will be there “free of charge” on the internet.

Occupy thyself.

All you have to do is open the site and your eyes.

APACHEWHOKNOWS on May 3, 2012 at 5:33 PM

As I recall I saw reports on Hot Air indicating most of the idiots at Tea Party rallies who held racist or Hitler signs were tied to unions or other leftist political organizations.

chickasaw42 on May 3, 2012 at 4:49 PM

Lyndon LaRouche fans mostly, a group on the Left that plays hangers-on to any other protest they can. Their posters are clearly labeled.

slickwillie2001 on May 3, 2012 at 5:39 PM

This whole thing is insane. Where is the rule of law here? We’ve got mobs just burning buildings in the streets! These aren’t democratic protests, their just thugs and anarchists out destroying property and committing threats and acts of violence!

JellyToast on May 3, 2012 at 5:45 PM

Ok – ‘these people’ – so you mean most, if not all.

verbaluce on May 3, 2012 at 5:30 PM

What would you call attempting to detonate C4 plastic explosive in order to bring down a bridge in Ohio?

I would call that terrorism, and so would the FBI.

You lose again.

Later.

Brian1972 on May 3, 2012 at 5:51 PM

The way the Left is going through its arsenal, I’m guessing they’ll be totally out of anything (not that they have anything…they just think they do…) before the election.

Guess they didn’t understand Sun Tzu, just Alinsky.

And when you go to battle, I’ll take Sun Tzu over Alinsky every battle.

ProfShadow on May 3, 2012 at 5:51 PM

Crud: ‘when one goes to a battle, take Sun Tzu over Alinsky every time’

ProfShadow on May 3, 2012 at 6:11 PM

Not the best source for info, but it works in a pinch

Dante on May 3, 2012 at 4:18 PM

It sure does.

MadisonConservative on May 3, 2012 at 6:17 PM

Just like a lefty to to mix up reality with liberal fantasy.

CAN’T NAME ONE
Set this to “Can’t Touch This” and you’ve got a theme for Alinksy-ites.

kregg on May 3, 2012 at 6:19 PM

What has ever led you to believe Fox News strives to be fair and balanced? Because they say so?

Dante on May 3, 2012 at 4:33 PM

Yeah, Dante, I thought “find it amusing” indicated sarcasm.

Lost in blog post translation I guess.

Dr. ZhivBlago on May 3, 2012 at 6:23 PM

Hannity: do you have any evidence [of the accusation Juan just made]?

Williams: I don’t have any evidence.

Sorry, Juan. Typical liberal. Just make stuff up and spout it as truth.

Apparently, getting fired by NPR didn’t open his eyes.

Verbaldouche was lost long before you. Somewhere around the “Yeah, Liberalism, that’s the ticket” decision.

She’s humorless only for those she ‘targets’. Otherwise it’s all hilariously schadenfreudig.

I don’t even like her much but I’m glad she fights against your side.

Schadenfreude on May 3, 2012 at 7:34 PM

I like that girl.

BobMbx on May 3, 2012 at 7:48 PM

Ok, so you are a Malkinite as well as Swift Boater.
Credit given for keeping up with the times.

verbaluce on May 3, 2012 at 1:49 PM

Those are bad things?

Dante on May 3, 2012 at 4:33 PM

They carry news articles from the AP as well.

Fighton03 on May 3, 2012 at 9:09 PM

Juan Williams
is “a poo flinging monkey”!!!
As are the majority of the
Leftist dirtbags, aka Democrats!

“Let’s Roll”

Update:
Malkin=Zillion ~vs~ Williams=Zilch

On Watch on May 3, 2012 at 10:22 PM

Someone did a photo shop picture with Obama’s face on a chimps body in a chimp family picture and he says the Tea Party is racist!

MCGIRV on May 4, 2012 at 12:23 AM

Wow Michell You whupped his BUTT! I love it! Thats the response these libtards need when they make Sh(T Up. Call them out on it, make them give examples of the Bull they are spewing, or STFU.

TX-96 on May 4, 2012 at 1:52 AM

God Bless Michellel Malkin. Give ‘em hell boss! Love ya.

Kenosha Kid on May 4, 2012 at 3:02 AM

“Michelle”!!

Kenosha Kid on May 4, 2012 at 3:04 AM

Michelle Malkin Rocks! Juan is a tool.

tbear44 on May 4, 2012 at 4:18 AM

Anarchist, poo-flinging monkeys. This may be the greatest name for a grunge-band, ever.

Squiggy on May 4, 2012 at 5:26 AM

I suspect you’ve been lost for some time now.

Meanwhile, I like how at the end Juan lied through his teeth when he said no one tried to paint the Tea Party movement as racist based on a few bad apples. Pffft. Sure Juan, if you say so. NOT!

xblade on May 4, 2012 at 5:31 AM

Michelle you go girl. As usual, Michelle has current facts. and to back up her claims of violence,bias,and lies. While on the other hand, Juan has difficulty providing evidence to support his claims.

MSGTAS on May 4, 2012 at 9:14 AM

Not to put too fine a point on this, but did I hear correctly at around 5:43 in this video that Williams admitted that people have been expelled from the Tea Party because of racism? Did he not just make Michelle’s point for her that those who espouse this type of rhetoric are not welcome in the TP, so they have been expelled. On the contrary, those who espouse violent overthrow of the government (can you say treason) are actually in charge of the occupoopers (Bill Ayers). In the liberal world, down is up and up is down. Reminds me of the book Ender’s Game.

College Prof on May 4, 2012 at 10:05 AM

Well, at least we will get a break from the Occupy movement this summer while Phish is on tour.

flstc on May 4, 2012 at 12:33 PM

I LOVE Michelle Malkin, i’ve read several of her books and have several more of em on my wish list. It’s a good thing the local library is free, or i’d be screwed, lol. We can’t afford to buy the books, but our ENTIRE family has at LEAST one, sometimes two books at all times.

momof5shortstuff on May 4, 2012 at 6:33 PM

His presence is why I watch less of Fox News. I just cannot comfortably watch someone, anyone, that is so firmly up the arse of the dem party. I cannot abide ignorance.

FireBlogger on May 4, 2012 at 6:34 PM

God bless you, Michelle!

patricius on May 4, 2012 at 8:37 PM

Juan wants to go back to NPR.

MCGIRV on May 4, 2012 at 10:14 PM

From a link on the home page: ‘Juan Williams misses working for NPR “big time.”’ http://www.capitalnewyork.com/article/media/2012/05/5837671/highlights-yet-another-talk-about-media-juan-williams-misses-npr-ben-s

MCGIRV is on the right track. I think someone has contacted Williams hinting he can go back to NPR if he toes their line as slavishly and submissively as possible. That’s exactly what he’s doing here. He’ll be back to NPR soon. And good riddance.
