Williams: If Gyrocopter Pilot Was Black Muslim, He Would Have Been Shot Down

Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace,” liberal contributor Juan Williams said if the mailman gyrocopter pilot who landed on the Capitol lawn this week had been a black Muslim, he would have been shot down.

“I would say we need less emphasis on the hysteria and the fear and the firing and more emphasis on the idea that we are an open democratic society,” Williams said. “We have to focus on closing gaps for the low-flying aircraft and the drone that landed on the White House lawn. We have to address that. We can do this sensibly. The idea we should be more militaristic. Senator Graham said we should have shot down this mail carrier. Goodness gracious, if he had been a black Muslim, maybe we would have.”
