Political analyst Juan Williams said on ‘The Five’ Wednesday on Fox News that conservatives claiming cities burned in 2020 is a “lie,” despite an accumulation of substantial video evidence counteracting his absurd claims.
While featured as a panelist on ‘The Five,’ Juan Williams told Fox News host Dana Perino that it’s important for Republican’s to call out right-wing extremism; which includes those who claim that American cities burned to the ground last year.
After being asked by Fox News host Dana Perino to comment on Democrats and their need to start calling out ‘wokeness,’ Williams agreed with the host but flipped the script to slam conservatives and boasted false Democrat talking points from politicians and mainstream media who fail to report the truth on the violent rioting across America last year.
In one of CNN’s finest moments, a reporter with the news network was on-the-ground in Kenosha, WI covering the violent aftermath of the fatal officer-involved shooting of Jacob Blake.
As the segment aired, fires roared behind the CNN reporter as anti-police rioters set small minority owned businesses on fire. According to CNN, the active situation in Kenosha was “fiery but mostly peaceful.”
It’s unclear why the Fox News political analyst made these outlandish and obviously false claims, but his rhetoric is concerning considering he wants those who truthfully say that cities were burning to the ground to be held accountable.
Therefore, according to Juan Williams, if someone dared to claim that cities burned across the country in 2020; they would be classified as having the views of an extremist.
