If You Want the President Impeached, You’re a Racist Says Fox News Host

A Fox News panel discussion on impeachment denigrated into a typical last-ditch argument for liberals, when host Juan Williams turned a comment about President Obama being “lawless” into a racial tirade. Williams responded to Heritage Action leader Michael Needham explaining that “Republicans think [Obama’s] a demon,” claiming that the Republican Party had “become almost a completely white party,” and suggesting that anybody calling for his impeachment are “all white” and “all older.”

Besides that, tell us how you really feel, Juan.

Watch the segment below…

Mediaite provides a partial transcript:

Both National Journal editor Ron Fournier and Williams called out Needham for calling Obama “lawless.”

“You listen to Michael and you understand why lots of Republicans think [Obama’s] a demon,” Williams said. “Lots of people in the minority community see it as an attack against the first black President. They think it’s unfair, and so it’s gonna spur their turnout in the midterms, which is going to be critical in several races.”

“If you just break it down as a matter of political analysis and say who is this group [calling for impeachment], it reminds me that the Republican Party has become almost a completely white party,” Williams continued. “The people who want him impeached are all white, they’re all older, and guess what — they’re all in the far right wing of the Republican Party.”

“He might as well have just said they’re all racists,” Needham objected. “That’s ridiculous….You’re the one demonizing people who are concerned about the fact that we have a crisis of Constitution.”

“Look, we can have a principled argument about President Obama’s actions and use of executive actions, but you called him lawless, as if he’s an outlaw, as if he’s riding the range and we gotta go get that guy,” Williams said.

Turning a mundane descriptor like “lawless” into a derogatory racial term?

Originality, -50 pts.

Williams’ liberal colleague over at MSNBC, Chris Matthews, of tingling leg fame, also used the same word “lawless” as a jumping off point to show conservatives are racist, saying it was nothing more than “second term birtherism.”   Birthers are of course, racist.

Regardless, if the only ones seeking to impeach Obama are old, white people – then the Democrat party must be the ones who are in reality, chock full of old, white people.

As NBC reporter Chuck Todd helpfully reminds us, “frankly, the only people talking about impeachment are Democrats.”

Old, white Democrats it would seem…

Peter Roff at U.S. News & World Report writes:

Despite what the White House or anyone else says, there is no current scenario under which the leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives would move to take up impeach proceedings against President Barack Obama.

To do so would be playing into Obama’s hands. He wants the House to move against him. He thinks it would be a political winner that would salvage his party’s flagging fortunes, galvanizing his voters – who only show up when he is on the ballot – to go to the polls in November 2014 to keep the Democrats from losing the Senate.

In short, the impeachment drive has been nothing more than a Democrat fantasy. And Williams using it to claim Republican racism is just the icing on the cake.



  1. Jeff says:

    Juan Williams is no better than the other liberals that make the accusation if you are against Obama and his socialist policies you are a racist. Well Juan I have news for you, You are the one who is a racist and not me. I do not like Obama because of his lousy policies and his socialist / Marxist ways. I do not like him because of all the damage he is doing to this once great country. We need to be rid of him before he causes un-repairable damage. Juan I have absolutely no respect for you and or your racist opinions.

  2. David says:

    yes I am a racist;; tired of being told that so I am one, SO WHAT????????

  3. Barry says:

    guess it was racist when dems proposed articles of impeachment against Bush, with Sheila Jackson Lee, who complains now about a possible impeachment, being one of the sponsors of the impeachment of Bush.

    So situationally challenged, to be a laughing stock for her idiocy.

  4. Matthew says:

    Ok, ok, I give up then. I guess I must be racist! To think, all these years and I have just been in denial. I’m going to just cave in to other people’s opinions and start being a racist like a good white republican. Apparently everyone will be happy then.

  5. David says:

    they are what they are;; laws mean nothing to these freaks;; it can not possibly be that obammie is a communist, a criminal, a liar, a depot ;;now can it; it can not possibly be that obamie’s actions actually threaten our existence as a free nation now could it.

  6. David says:

    consider the source;; old Juan was fired from CNN and FOX was stupid enough to give him a platform to spew his racial bias.

    Juan Williams is an angry old black man, he sits there rolling his eyes, and snorting like a mad bull.
    If you want to get a laugh just watch him, he can’t wait to cry racism. Obama is half white, raised by white people having very little contact with black people. Obama learned while living in Chicago listening to Jeremiah Wright, and others in that community it furthered his career to hate his white family, and all whites.
