Watch it here: Juan Williams describes fear of Muslims on airplanes
On an episode of The O'Reilly Factor, news analyst Juan Williams evoked the mindset of a reactionary yokel, describing his wariness at the prospect of getting onto an airplane with a Muslim.
"If I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they're identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried, I get nervous," Williams said. To the surprise of no one, Fox News went on to expand Williams's role within the network, even cutting him a new deal worth $2 million to reward his abject racism.
