Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

A funny thing seems to happen the more polarized this nation gets - moderates appear to find themselves in the position of having to choose sides - they usually move left. After all, they are moderates. On the Republican side, David Frum seems to be distancing himself from the conservative movement on a near daily basis. Juan Williams, the normally likable Fox News Contributor seems to be doing the same thing. Like Frum, he's outwardly moving left but unlike Frum, he's doing so from what was already a moderately leftwing perspective.

NewsBusters has the video of Williams defending the words of Richard Trumka, head of the AFL-CIO while being interviewed by Stuart Varney. Take note of the words Trumka said that Williams seemed to either agree with or apologize for:
"There are forces in our country that are working hard to convert justifiable anger about an economy that only seems to work for a few of us into racist and homophobic hate and violence directed at our President and heroes like Congressman John Lewis. Most of all, those forces of hate seek to divide working people -- to turn our anger against each other."
Williams is the same guy who referred to the Gadsden flag as "Timothy McVeigh imagery". Now we have him defending the words of Richard Trumka while seemingly on-board with the Value Added Tax (VAT). At one point, Varney challenges Williams on his support of these far left policies of the administration while the referring to Williams as a "centrist Democrat". Williams' response was incredibly telling; he basically says he doesn't view the policies as taking America towards "far left socialism". Varney, having experienced such a thing firsthand, obviously disagrees.

The good news is that the true views of moderates like Williams are becoming known. Should Williams' views be all that surprising? As someone who works for NPR, he's already collecting taxpayer funded paychecks. Of course he loves taxes!
