The main beef I have with Juan, who is a relatively reasonable guy most of the time (for a liberal), is that on several occasions within his article, he clearly stated that conservatives were justified in feeling a sense of Schadenfreude - the joy felt in watching the misfortunes of others - at the blatant hypocrisy of these Hollywood moguls.
Nothing could be farther from the truth: no conservative worth his or her salt could possibly have this kind of reaction to these recent revelations on the thought processes present in the Hollywood elite.
The fact is that we all know this is how these guys think. It's nothing new, it's 'dog bites man,' and not the other way around. Why on earth would anyone get a feeling of joy at these Hollywood liberals squirming in their moment of lucidity?
I think Juan Williams' point is that since their raging hypocrisy is now on display, there will be accountability on their part to change, to atone for their sins, to become better people. Accordingly, the conservative cause will have gained merit, and the liberals will have lost some mojo because of this kerfuffle.
HA. Fat chance. None of that will happen. These liberal moguls will continue to fund liberal causes, produce liberal movies and do liberal things just like nothing happened. No accountability will reduce any of their activities, no face will have been lost for the liberal philosophy, life will go on exactly as it has before.
Why would conservatives be joyful over essentially nothing? Nobody is taking this little episode to heart, and changing things in their lives: there is absolutely no chance that some of the clueless out there are suddenly going to read the National Enquirer and declare: "did you read this about those Hollywood hypocrites, Marge? By golly, they are rotten to the bone saying those things, I think I will stop believing them and their liberal views. I am never voting for another liberal ever again, and I am now going to vote conservative, Marge. C'mon, Marge, let's go register as Republicans...."
Like that's going to happen? In a pig's eye. Juan couldn't be more wrong about this Schadenfreude on behalf of conservatives.
