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.
