Skip to comments.Liberal Lynch Mob Finally Gets Juan Williams
Posted on 10/21/2010 10:42:59 AM PDT by JedEckert2000
NPR has been looking to unload Juan Williams for a long time. They will tolerate only one way of thinking- only the furthest-left, ultra-politically-correct dogma. Like Pravda during the old Soviet Union, you either toe the line or end up in a gulag. Since there are no gulags in the United States… yet, NPR will have to settle for a contract termination. But make no mistake, if they had their way, I am sure Juan, alongside most of talk radio, the entire staff of Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and others would be in a re-education work camp this morning.
What was Juan's crime? He told the truth about his own personal feelings - something you really have to keep buried these days. Anyone who says they weren't a little anxious about Muslims or middle-eastern people on planes after 9/11 is not just a liar. They're a damn liar. I remember being on a flight a few months after the attack when a man in a turban (not even a Muslim, but a Sikh!) took his seat. The other passengers all looked at each other with knowing glances. "If this guy gets up to use the bathroom, he's going down!"
But you are not allowed to say these things lest they offend the most protected class of people in the history of the world. You simply can't say anything that might in the smallest way make Muslims feel the least bit uncomfortable. Witness the Seattle cartoonist who dared suggest a "Draw Allah" contest. That woman has been forced to into hiding on the advice of our own FBI. Our country either cannot or will not protect her! This is beyond outrageous. This is madness.
America needs to stand together united against this fascism. If we are going to have free speech, then let's have it. If you or your beliefs are so fragile that you can't stand being offended once in awhile, then get out. This is what we do here in America, we debate, we argue, we make fun and, yes, we occasionally offend each other.
If this is not for you-fine. Please take your delicate constitution along with your Sharia law, burqas, veils, fatwas, and honor killings, and please get out. There is plenty of room for your way of thinking in Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Taliban-controlled Afghanistan.
Not that I care, but just in case some you more feeble-minded readers might think that I am talking about ALL Muslims. I am not. I am talking about Muslims who do not celebrate our freedom. I am talking about anyone who wishes to impose their way of thinking on everyone around them. I am talking about the ones who threaten (even to kill) anyone who dares criticize the most extreme aspects of their religion.
Your intolerance is creating enemies where they did not exist before.
And not for nothing, but isn't NPR the same radio network that just took a bunch of money from George Soros?! Where is that cash going? To hire new reporters. A coincidence?
All I can say is, “Ha!... HAHA... ahhhahahahahahaha!
Well, Juan, if you lie down with dogs....
It wasn’t just liberals - I have no doubt that the main impetus for this firing came from CAIR - a jihadist organization.
I’m reading a book called “Future Jihad” and this episode is straight out of its pages.
The extent to which we’re being infiltrated and subjugated by the islamists is downright frightening.
I’m only shocked it took them this long to get rid of him. I expected this to happen a long time ago. I am so sick of our hard earned money going to this organization.
B..b..but I thought liberals were all about the feeeeeeeelings. Guess that only applies if they're approved liberal feeeeeeelings.
His real crime was being employed by Fox News. He left the reservation. His recent comments provided NPR a valid (in their minds, anyway) reason to kick him to the curb.
It is fund raising week for NPR!
I just hope their latest “fund raising scam” falls down a deep hole. I for one will NEVER give a dime to this liberal bunch who just happens to exist because of our tax dollars. I’m not a big Juan fan but he did absolutely nothing wrong EXCEPT work for Fox News according to those dips&*ts at NPR.
Free at Last;)
Juan Williams is free at last. IMHO, he often seemed tentative and holding back on FOX....now he has a burr under his saddle - expect to see him let it ‘all hang out’.
Hope he shows us that he is more in line with Walter Williams than Juan McCain.
Looks like NPR has been out for Juan for sometime. Bad week for NPR to get rid of him!
My friend is a lifetime Far Left Liberal. He taught school in a Crazy-left Massachusetts city for over 30 years. No cause was too radical or stupid as long as he could be seen as Politically Correct. He eventually rose to a vice-superintendent. Then, it happened. He refused to promote two female black teachers who were angry, racist imbeciles who constantly ragged on white men in public. Overnight, he was charged with being Racist and Sexist. Without benefit of trial, he was fired and tossed-out into the road while the two teachers in question were promoted and given pay raises. If he were not a friend I would probably take some satisfaction in another Liberal being eaten by its own. NOTHING is as crazily, viciously, rip your throat out with its teeth awful as the “benevolent left.”
I’m going to hazard a guess that your friend is still a Far Left Liberal.
The Jihadi’s and their sympathizers (overwrought with “guilt” and hatred of America) are pushing ordinary people so hard, there will be pushback. And I am not talking about outrage in public forums, media, ballot box, etc.
NPR should replace Juan with McCain daughter. She is the kind of “Republican” they like.
Juan is wrong as often as he’s right but still a voice of reason and conscious in the black community. They didn’t like that.
“,,,lest they offend the most protected class of people in the history of the world.”
And who are the least deserving of such a status.
Beyond amazing, THEY routinely kill/persecute Christians around the world, THEY’RE responsible for 9/11, TWA 800, the first WTC bombing, and a whole host of other attempts here in America (shoe bomber, Times Square, etc.); THEY stone and behead women for who knows what; THEY are the most intolerant cult in existence.
All this could have been nipped in the bud in the closing months of 2001, but our leaders chose to stick their heads in the sand and cower to evil.
Message to the cult of islam: Americans may be slow coming out of the gate, but mark this in your book - we’re not going to lose our country to you or anyone else.
You are correct. An unemployed Liberal.
Gosh, my political tone deafness goes the other way ~ when NPR is disposed of like the garbage they are, I won't say a word.
Let them survive on liberals paying for those Three Tenor collector sets.
Oh yeah, and $oro$.
Pray for America
This firing was done at the best of George Soros. I have not proof, but it fits his MO. Give a million dollars, force out someone who is reasonable and not ultra-left.
