NPR FIRES JUAN WILLIAMS

NPR News has terminated the contract of longtime news analyst Juan Williams after remarks he made on the Fox News Channel about Muslims.

Williams appeared Monday on The O’Reilly Factor, and host Bill O’Reilly asked him to comment on the idea that the U.S. is facing a dilemma with Muslims.

O’Reilly has been looking for support for his own remarks on a recent episode of ABC’s The View in which he directly blamed Muslims for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. Co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg walked off the set in the middle of his appearance.

Williams responded: “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.”

So do millions of other Americans, Juan. You are not alone. LINK

Apparently Juan Williams isn’t liberal enough for NPR. That bastion of liberalism can’t TOLERATE his opinion. It’s been an eye-opening look at the unhinged left this week. First Whoopi and “Joy” storm off the set of the “View” after being offended by the Big Bad Wolf Bill O’Reilly. Now NPR has fired Juan Williams (their only black commentor) after over ten years of service without so much as a conference or warning. Just a phone call. How classy.

Although I don’t always agree with him, I like Juan Williams. He always presents a counterpoint in a reasonable and well thought out way that provokes me to think about my position on a given subject. And while the left railes against FOX news, you can’t find a comparable conservative voice on any of the state-run media outlets giving balance to their drivel. Fox has a stable of left leaning personalities who are constantly brought in to give a counter arguement. This is what happens to you if you dare buck the liberal establishment. Pretty Orwellian if you ask me. Talk about stifling speech. NPR caved in to MUSLIM special interests. It is part and parcel of what goes on in Muslim countries. Those who buck the state or religious authorities are destroyed.

Lucky for Juan he still has his head.

  1. Liberals are such outright hypocrites…

    NPR has had numerous other people that have said worse off things (that were actually hateful), such as wishing someone would contract AIDS from a blood transfusion, and yet they’re still working at that taxpayer funded liberal organization.

  2. Wyatt Earp says:

    Serves Williams right. He should know better than to criticize this nation’s de facto state religion. (I love that term. Ace of Spades coined it.)

    I think it’s high time Congress de-funded NPR. There are better ways to spend the taxpayers’ money, epecially in this economy.

  3. Ritt says:

    NPR may have finally stepped on its own d..k

  4. Ferrell Gummitt says:

    Juan Williams, Bill O’Reilly and Michael Savage are not the ones who really puts Islam in a bad light.

    Radical Muslims are the ones shooting at US.
    Moderate Muslims are calling in range coordinates.

    Just once, I’d like to hear Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR (who got Williams fired) or Imam Rauf condemn Radical Islam; or Hezbollah, or Hamas. That will never happen, as the “Religion of Peace” would issue a Fatwah against them, and lop off their heads.

    People best start facing facts, and calling a spade a spade. Do it while there is still time, and a First Amendment; before they enact Sharia.

    Cap:
    Excellent post…mirrors my sentiments perfectly.
    And some damn fine comments as well.

    Damn progressives… just “can’t HANDLE the truth”…(as Nicholson would say).

    Stay safe.

  6. Dustoff says:

    PC will do us all in if we don’t rid ourselves of it.

    Another stupid lib idea.

    Hang in their Juan.

  7. This will turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to Juan.
    First- he will finally see liberalism for what it is.
    Second- He will find out who his REAL friends are.
    Third- He will make a TON of money.
    Fourth-He will gain new credibility.

    What they did to him is a disgrace.

  8. Ingineer66 says:

    I think it is crazy that liberals have such a double standard for what is acceptable behavior. This is not any different than the Sherrod story at the Dept. of Agriculture and the Obama White House did a knee jerk reaction and fired her and then came begging for her to come back.

    On his comment in the first place, I look at everybody that gets on the plane. The 9/11 hijackers were trying to blend in and wore polo shirts and jeans. The Muslim with the long beard and his wife wearing a burka and their kid are probably not there to blow up the plane.

  9. Dustoff says:

    It odd part and yet NO-outrage.
    A Black man fired by a White woman. 0-:

    I wonder how the MSN would have reported this, if Juan was working for Fox and was fired.
