Michelle Malkin Lashes Out at Juan Williams for Comparing Occupy Violence to ‘Racism’ in Tea Party, Says There’s No Parallel Between Hard-Working Tea Partiers and ‘Marxist Monkey’ Occupiers
When Hannity questioned Williams about the fact that President Obama and Nancy Pelosi have both praised the Occupy movement, despite the violence at times associated with it, Williams said, “I don’t think they’re praising what you think they’re praising, Sean.” Williams argued any of the violence associated with the protests comes from unstable people or the homeless who have latched onto the movement.
Michelle Malkin disagreed, “These Occupiers and the Democrats behind them can no more disown the violent agitators than they can disown the stench that comes from these filthy encampments. From day one, from its very inception, the movement has intended to create chaos and they have openly advocated smashing the state, wreaking havoc on our economy, and undermining our rule of law.”

Williams responded by targeting the Tea Party, saying, “I just think, Michelle, that if you look at something like the Tea Party movement … If I was on the show with Sean and I said, ‘Oh, but what about the racism in some parts of the Tea Party?’”
Hannity and Malkin quickly chimed in asking, “What racism?”
Williams asserted, “Some people have been expelled from the Tea Party because of racism!”
Malkin shouted over him, “Name it or retract it, Juan!”
Williams said, “That’s not the heart of the Tea Party and I would never make that charge.”
Malkin questioned, “That’s tantamount to calling for violence and killing cops and killing conservatives and Republicans?”
Malkin concluded, “There is no, absolutely no, parallel between the peace-loving, tax-paying, hard-working people of the Tea Party movement and the anarchist poo-flinging Marxist monkeys of the Occupy movement!”
