Pin Heads & Patriots: Tax Funded NPR Fires Juan Williams for Expressing his Freedom of Speech Regarding the Muslim Dilemma
PIN HEAD: NPR – PATRIOT: Juan Williams and Fox News.
Liberals are just so reasonable and understanding to an opposing point of view. Welcome to NPR … National Progressive Radio, or is it National Pin Head radio?
NPR, National Public Radio, has fired Fox News contributor Juan Williams for comments that he made on Fox News regarding Muslims. Williams made his comments regarding Muslims on The O’Reilly Factor with Bill O’Reilly when discussing the “Muslim dilemma”. What did Williams say that was so inflammatory that it warranted his firing … nothing more than any common sense thinking individual does. However, in the world of liberal propaganda media, that cannot be tolerated.
So much for Freedom of Speech when it comes to the LEFT and the liberal MSM. How foolish do these “pinheads” look when the very tenants of liberalism and free thought are shown for what they really are? Do not agree with us or you will be fired! Liberals and the moonbat LEFT, hell the Obama White House has attacked Fox News … yet isn’t it telling that FOX NEWS allows differing opinion; however, the LEFT does not. So much for “Fair & Balanced”. Remember when the Obama WH tried to ban Fox News from pool reporters?
How bad, evil and insipid has the LEFT become when an individual like Juan Williams who has championed civil rights in America is shamelessly fired for providing an obvious opinion? I do not agree with most of the things that Juan Williams says and as a matter of fact most of the time I just shake my head; however, a differing opinion in the news id what is wanted and needed. I thought the LEFT stood for diversity, or at least they claim to … I guess not!
What about the fairness doctrine that the Liberals are so enamored with? First we have the crazy ladies of the view, Whoopie Goldberg and Joy Bahar, storm off the view in a hissy fit … now this. I wonder how Juan Williams feels about “political correctness” these days? By simply making a statement regarding how Americans felt about post 9-11 travel after 3000 individuals were murdered by flying planes into building … that is a firable offence. WAKE UP AMERICA!
NPR said in a statement that it gave Mr. Williams notice of his termination on Wednesday night.
The move came after Mr. Williams, who is also a Fox News political analyst, appeared on the “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday. On the show, the host, Bill O’Reilly, asked him to respond to the notion that the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.” Mr. O’Reilly said, “The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet.”
Mr. Williams said he concurred with Mr. O’Reilly.
He continued: “I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. 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.”
Mr. Williams also made reference to the Pakistani immigrant who pleaded guilty this month to trying to plant a car bomb in Times Square. “He said the war with Muslims, America’s war is just beginning, first drop of blood. I don’t think there’s any way to get away from these facts,” Mr. Williams said.
As Weasel Zippers states, so much for a diversity of opinion on American tax funded NPR. So much for “fair & balanced” from NPR, eh? Williams was fired from NPR because he did not toe the company, progressive, liberal line. The NPR statement said that William’s remarks “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR”. WHAT? Did NPR just call themselves “bed wetting liberals” with a political agenda? Are not they supposed to be a tax funded news organization that is partially tax funded?
NPR said in its statement that the remarks “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.”
And yes American, you are paying for this programming.

Soros just bought off NPR so who did not see something like this coming?
Here is a little glimmer of hope from the msm, they actually report something negative about the one.
For Lib Juan in very sensable. The libs dont like people who can think for them selves. Let Fox hire Juan, he’s a good guy for being a Lib.
Juan Williams is a wonderful, fair man!! Watch him all the time on several Fox shows and he’s never afraid to express his views, and he’s honest and fair. Shame on NPR.
Fox will bring him on and he’ll be fine.
I have informed our local NPR station that I can not support them in the future because of the intolerance of the National’s action.
We, The United States of America, are getting closer to becoming the united states of islam – what a disgrace. When we put our foot down.
Sorry, when Will we put our foot down – and take our country back.
He should have known that one can only bash Christians without being fired. Look at Joy (man did they ever get that name wrong) Behar on the view. Bash Christian people all day long……but say “Muslims killed us on 9-11″ and Joy and Whoopi storm off their own set.
Iam so sick of Juan Williams. I met him twenty years ago. He was a first class jerk back then. NPR is a joke! Juan was fired because he plays both sides and the middle on Fox. Yes, Fox news is under attack. Piece by piece it will be taken apart by Soros… The media is so censored. The real news does not make it to the public. ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC have been brain washing America for years.
i bet you wouldn’t find one soul, dumbocrat or
liebral that wouldn’t have second thoughts
about getting on a plane with someone dressed
in muslim garb. they would be sweating bullets jus
just like the rest of the country.
Why do we have to light up the Empire State Building for the Muslim holiday? New York is becoming a real breeding ground for trouble.
And Juan isn’t the only one that gets nervous when he sees a Muslim in their garb get on a plane!!!
We do have a Muslim dilemma, that’s for sure…What about the mouth on Obama, his rudeness, tone and cynical remarks, for starters, has a very negative impact on America…!!! He supports Muslims, as we well know…!!!! Saw a photo of him donned traditional African garb on a visit to his native Kenya 2008 when he was a U.S. Senator…
When Obama was campaigning for President he wanted to hide his association with Muslims in order to gain votes. There were two lady Muslims sitting behind him at the podium and they were asked to leave because of wearing their head garb and Obama did not want that on camera.
A strange thing about Muslims, they do not like dogs because they think they are dirty….if they are licked by a dog they are suppose to clean the area seven times using sand and dirt or may use an anti-bacterial soap. They fear their saliva and also think that a black dog is evil. They are not suppose to have dogs in their home as pets. So I guess Bo is suppose to be another cover-up in Obama’s secret life.
ditto brie. obumbles is a muslim.
i say round all of them up and send them back to their own country. they are only here for one thing and that is to take over our country.
be at the polls in nov and vote out the democrats.
what do african clothes have to do with muslims?
Feeling much better about this story today, since Williams has accepted a deal for $2Mil to be on the Fox Network now.
Nice. So, really this did him a favor afterall.
Well, I for one will not give NPR another penny! Oh! Wait a minute! Haven’t exactly given them the first penny yet…
This was a crazy move. I’m entirely on Juan’s side. NPR definitely should not be funded with one cent of taxpayer’s money. Juan’s star will rise, and NPR will crash.
Don’t just worry about those in traditional garb. To the best of my knowledge, none of the 9-11 hijackers were in traditional garb. I keep a close eye on ALL passengers on my flights that appear to be from mid-eastern countries, beginning while seated in the terminal. I watch them as I board and note where they are seated as well as keep my eyes open while walking to the lavatory. As they say in NYC, “See something, say something”. Being aware of your surroundings is our best defense.
The Liberal Agenda has been our road to ruin. This incident only underscores the hypocracy of the left and how badly America has gone off the rails with it’s dependency on Gov’t, it’s marriage to multi-culturism and it’s political correctness/lack of truthful discussion based on reality. It’s a shame and a failure.
one of the problems in north america is the lax attitude towards imagration (allowing just
anybody to get off a plane to walk as they wished), no quarentine, no medical, no who are you no what can you offer our country. just come on in and suck off our welfare system and anything else you want and you don’t have to work for it! the other problem is that they come here without the intention of respecting our ways and traditions and values and think we should let them do as they please. they forget all too quickly what they are running from when they come here
[...] Liasson is being a good NPR lib and obviously does not want to become the next Juan Williams. Share [...]
[...] NPR dribble. Juan Williams must be, forgive the expression, wetting himself every day that he is out of that Left-wing lunatic NPR insane assylum and he landed a big contract on Fox News. Share [...]
