“NPR Fires Juan Williams for Muslim Comments on Fox

Wednesday, 20 Oct 2010 11:53 PM

Juan Williams, a well-known political pundit and author, was fired by National Public Radio late Wednesday after he said on Fox News that he was often nervous when boarding a plane with people who are dressed in “Muslim garb,” according to The New York Times. NPR said in a statement it had given Williams notice of his termination Wednesday night.

Williams, who is also a Fox News political analyst, appeared on the “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday. The show’s host, Bill O’Reilly, asked him whether the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.”

“The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet,” O’Reilly said.
Williams then said he agreed with O’Reilly.

“I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot,” Williams added. “You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.” ”

Memo To Liberals:  The intolerance of tolerance doesn’t allow exceptions to politically correct speech.  None.  No deviancy.

That means no criticism of Islam, Muslims, or anything associated with Islam and Muslims.   Ever.

Memo To Everyone Else:  Now, it gets interesting to see which Liberals grow a back bone, set of guts, bit of brave heart  and key male anatomy to fight back for free speech and which ones knuckle under.

Also,  note how the Liberals think anyone who disagrees with them is full of hate, evil or crazy.   They can’t imagine reasonable, bright people disagreeing with them.  Because they are tomorrow’s totalitarians.

  1. Yesterday, Fox (NewsCorp) gave Williams a raise and extended his contract. Who has the moral high ground?

  2. This could be a good thing, since it’s another open display of self-righteous liberal hypocrisy, and denial of plain truth. I believe more and more thinking citizens are realizing leftist America lost the intellectual and moral high ground long ago, if they ever held it.

    Btw, I just discovered this blog, and thanks for the good work. I will be visiting regularly. It clicks; it’s the real thing. Very good stuff. Keep it up, and God bless.
