Watch: Juan Williams Surprisingly Stands his Ground Against Lou Dobbs’ Insane Ignorance on Race in America

 

On Wednesday’s edition of Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” conservative host Lou Dobbs and Juan Williams discuss the Black Lives Matter movement‘s presence at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Lou Dobbs: Looking at Black Lives Matter demonstrating here. Black Lives Matter is effectively a hate group, and it’s discriminatory by its very name.

[…]

Juan Williams : When it comes to Black Lives Matter, Lou, I think people are trying to say in addition to the idea that white lives and upper-income lives matter, poor Black lives do matter. That’s not a racist statement.

Dobbs: I think that shorthand is not applicable in discussions where we’re talking about the worth and the value of life. In this country is — always celebrated, it’s a fundamental value, the value of life. And that means all lives, all Americans. And I wouldn’t tolerate something called White Lives Matter.

Williams: Well no, but whites are the majority.

Dobbs: Well, no, I don’t think we are, really.

    No, mr Dobbs, while you sit there all nice and fat, rich and arrogant, you are not boring the audience, we want to hear and talk about Our lives mattering, with the goal being, for one, you and the majority of America realizing/acknoeledging that there is a problem when white cops are shooting unarmed Black males down in cold blooded murder. Shout out to Juan Williams, he got some good shots inbetween Dobbs denying and pushing his false dicotomy forward. Dobbs realized he was out matched, that's why he passed it off to Mark Simone for back up, he got blasted out of the water, Juan had his facts and stats loaded and ready to fire. I would have loved to hear the argument between Dobbs and juan Williams, that Williams had referenced during the interview.

  2. Julian With says:

    I don't understand the headline of this. Juan Williams stands up against? Come on, he was far too soft to the interviewer. Why not telling him that as a journalist of his level, he should know more of the race relations in America. If the man denies that there are no difference between Blacks and whites being murdered by the police, than mr. Williams should have sent him to go making his homework better before asking questions about this affair. He could have told him that the denial of the human crime, calling racism, contributes to the escalation of the race problem in America and that by denying racism, he's trowing oil on the fire. But by saying so many times with a smile on his face: "I agree with you." Come on! There is nothing to agree with this kind of people
