The vipers are turning on their own. It’s inevitable because it is in their nature. Liberal commentator and analyst Juan Williams, the only black liberal analyst at National Public Radio, has been fired following comments made during his regular weekly appearance on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor.
The question is: why was Williams fired?
The answer is simple: he won’t toe the line with the rest of the politically correct crowd and go along quietly with the rest of his liberal colleagues. His comment went as follows: “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.”
Oh my GOD! How DARE a liberal journalist and commentator voice the feelings of most every single American citizen out there? Americans have the right to be concerned with muslims right now – after all the 19 men who carried out 9/11 were muslims, the Christmas Day bomber was muslim, the Ft. Hood shootist was muslim, the Times Square bomber was muslim, the men who carried out the 1996 bombing of the World Trade Center were muslim, the people who bombed the U.S.S. Cole were muslim and yet not one single, solitary muslim leader has gone on record condemning these acts of terrorism.
Yet muslims want us to believe they are a religion of peace.
But Juan Williams is not a muslim. He his black and a liberal and yet he gets fired from NPR. Was it because of his comments? Hardly. In February 2009, NPR told Juan Williams that NPR did not like Williams appearing on Fox News and that he was not allowed have anyone at Fox News mention Williams’ association with NPR as a senior correspondant. This is a case of a classic witch hunt. NPR did not like one of its own going “across the aisle” so they started looking for a reason to fire Williams. When he voiced his own personal feelings the group known as CAIR (whatever the hell those letters are supposed to stand for – actually I know but I’m not going to spell them out because they may as well be ACLU) demanded that NPR do something about Williams. So true to form, the pinheads at NPR caved in to a bunch of whiny thumb-sucking crybabies and Williams got the boot.
This, of course, puts all of the liberal media into a bit of a conundrum. Here they have one of their own – a liberal black commentator, reporter and political analyst with an excellent track record of being fair, yet they have to stay true to their politically correct ideology otherwise they lose their gravy train from the likes of George Soros so they throw Williams under the bus in an attempt to remind the rest of their lemmings that they must toe the line regardless of their personal feelings or common sense.
I personally like Juan Williams. I like listening to his analysis of the news because I believe Juan to be a fair guy. I think Alicia C. Shepard, spokesperson for NPR, is a poltroon for throwing Williams under the bus. Ms. Shepard is welcome to refute my assertion but I doubt very highly she will dare leave the confines of her cushy corner office at NPR headquarters to call me on the phone and explain why Mr. Williams was fired. The official reason is that Williams’ comments “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.” Frankly, that’s bull. This is a typical non-denial, denial (as former Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee would say) from the left and it is crap. I want to know who called up NPR and threatened to take their money away if Williams wasn’t fired. I want to know who was the sop at NPR who caved in to whatever Pecksniffian and said to fire him. Then I want to know what pompous ass threatened NPR in the first place. Was it CAIR and their team of sharks? Was it George Soros and his goon squad? Was it someone in the White House? Who made the call? I want Ms. Shepard to contact me through this website and have the balls to answer my questions with real answers and not give me the traditional liberal side-step. I challenge NPR to answer my questions truthfully, honestly and without censorship and then be aware that I intend to publish those answers right here for everyone to see.
Juan Williams did not deserve to be fired from his job. Someone at NPR was looking for an excuse and found it Monday night. NPR should do the honorable thing and retract its decision and offer Williams his job back and then have the balls to stand up to whatever goon squad threatened them and in the words of George W. Bush say, “Bring it on!”
