We Are All Bigots Now

The firing of Juan Williams by National Public Radio (NPR), alleging that he was guilty of bigotry during a recent appearance on Bill O’Reilly’s FoxNews Channel television program, is another case of political correctness mixed with demagoguery run amuck.

Here are the “horrific” words that did him in:

Islam needs to be wiped off the face of the earth, starting in America.

Best headline I’ve seen in this past week.

I think people have just had it with people shouting “racist!” every time someone says something they don’t like. That it’s been applied to a liberal has finally got certain people realizing, “You know, this is really stupid.”

The left has long defined a bigot as “someone who disagrees with me”. It is now becoming obvious because they no longer have an oligopoly in the MSM.

If this chink in NPR’s armor leads to a final cutoff of federal funds, it will all have been worth it.

It is interesting to witness the conversion of Juan Willams into victim of the liberal establishment, when he has sat so many times with his nostrils quivering in indignation over some faux liberal outrage over “racist-bigot” remarks by conservatives like Rush, Coulter, George Allen, Rick Santorum, Paladino, (and even Bill O’Reilly)

It is exactly like an alcoholic family — someone finally speaks the Truth, and THEY become the problem. Denial is very compelling, and breaking through with the truth shatters a worldview. Screaming and name-calling keep that at bay.

The libs are sick puppies.

Here is the money quote:

“A nation without NPR is much preferred to one where my tax dollars support a propaganda arm of the American left. Better yet, let George Soros just fund the whole thing. He already gives them a boatload of cash. And we all know that he is all about objectivity.”

NPR is as much a direct violation of the first amendment as if the Federal government gave money to directly fund the Catholic Church.

I looked up the official definition of the word "bigot"

"noun: a prejudiced person who is intolerant of any opinions differing from his own"

In a "round robin" sense, anyone who accuses anyone of being a "bigot", is also a "bigot" for calling the person a vile name for NOT AGREEING WITH THEIR OPINION.

And the "predjudice" part...well, without predjudices - or the ability to pre-judge - we would all be just the robots the left wants us to be.

To disallow prejudices is to disallow opinions, then we get the "thought police" and live in fear of some thin-skinned nutcase becoming the "ruler" and punishing people for their perceived thoughts.

Thanks to the media and the coverage of the 1960's civil rights issues, many people think "prejudice" means only that "white people hate black people".

These are the same government schooled idiots who think that "racism" is a one-way term. But, these are words that the democrat plantation has taught them to use when they jump into a ghetto phone booth and change into "VictimMan", fighting a never-ending battle for handouts, freebies and Jesse Jackson's way. Opportune words that could - with a slick government lawyer - turn into cold, hard cash for them...the lawsuit lottery.

Barack "Black Liberation Theology" Obama is the bigot/racist.

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"

WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.

HANNITY: But I'm a — reverend

WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?

Actually, President Thomas Jefferson once sent Federal dollars to fund Catholic missionaries to the Indians.

Of course, whenever the issue of the Muslim connection to Islamism (like hydrogen’s connection to water) is mentioned, the knee-jerk response by some is to say something akin to, “Well, you can’t condemn all Christians because of what Timothy McVeigh did.”

Whose condemning them? All that's happening is that people are expressing a natural suspicion based on facts. If every individual in the past ten years who committed an act of terrorism had a heart-shaped tattoo on his right forearm, it would be both natural and logical for everyone to suspect and be wary of persons wearing heart-shaped tattoos on their right forearms.

How can somebody who may be anti-Muslim be racist? Muslims come in all races, do they not?

So true

Almost as much irony as seeing the First Black President's wife get beaten by the race card in the dem primary

CPB(Corporation for Public Broadcasting) should be pressured to cleanup or disassociate with NPR... they need to be brought into the sound bite system.. They will not appreciate the publicity.. They are part of the problem.. since they are a left wing group also.. This NEEDS to go VIRAL.. on them(TOO)..

But is NPR really even needed today?

"The N word" workers think so, their jobs at "the N word" depend upon it.

I'm trying no to be "a B word" by using words so to be "PC" and no be considered "an A word", I will keep my comments about "the M word" religion so I don't offend "the I word" people too much.

I know how "the P word" "the M word" people can get and I don't want them to be offended to the point of seeking out their 72 "V word" since many of them are dangerous "the T word" and may "the T word" us stateside if I aggravate them.

Exactly. If you see someone in Muslim dress boarding the same plane that you are boarding, and don't feel at least a twinge of fear, you are not open-minded, you are stupid.

Not long after 9-11, I was in line to board a plane. The security staff was going down the line doing a count, pulling every "x" passenger aside for an extra check. The couple standing in front of me was obviously Muslim; the woman was covered except for her face and hands. The count passed over them, over me, and landed on the middle-aged redheaded businesswoman behind me.

I was furious but of course could not say anything. I was also quite sure that, had the count landed on this couple, it would have somehow "stuttered" past them and ended up on me.

Then when I got on board the plane and was seated, the man in the seat next to me opened his newspaper. It was in Arabic. I thought, "Oh, great, I'll bet they didn't check him again, either."

I spent the rest of the flight trying to figure out what I had that could possibly be used as a weapon, and watching these three individuals for any suspicious movements.

I still keep a suspicious eye on my fellow passengers when I fly.

I don't think either Juan Williams nor I are necessarily bigoted, nor that either of us need psychiatric care.

Brit Hume described NPR as fostering a “howling double standard” on FNS this morning. If you didn’t catch the panel discussion on this, including Juan Williams, you really need to program the Tivo and tune in one of the repeats later today. It’s rare to see Brit Hume animated about anything, but he was visibly pissed about this when Chris Wallace got to him.

The amusing part: the woman head of NPR who responded to the criticisms said something about Juan needing to seek out his psychiatrist over his Islamophobia, or something to that effect.

Oops. Offensive to people with mental illness!!! Ha ha ha ha. She was forced to issue an apology for her “insensitive remark.”

I am still howling over that one. This is hilarious. These people are just tripping over themselves and it’s a gas.

Obama's Church: Gospel of Hate
Kathy Shaidle, FrontPageMag.com
Monday, April 07, 2008

In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obama’s pastor in a heated interview about his Church’s teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...

Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.

Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004

In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.

The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.

Islam is not terribly popular above the 30th parallel.

Couple of reasons for that are ~ when Ramadan occurs during Summer you would starve to death between meals ~ if you didn't die of thirst first.

I am not hearing of any Eskimo, Chugchi, Yakut, Yupiak, Samoyed, Suami or Sa'ami Mosques ever being blown up by anybody ~ most likely because there's no such thing.

Assuming many, some, all or most of those folks have the X-factor genetic structure, that's a whole "race" who have NO MOSLEM members!

...let George Soros just fund the whole thing [NPR]....

As a VERY pro-Serbian Orthodox Christian American, I would boycott ANY media funded entirely by George Soros!!!! And I think that I would have all sorts of other people joining me in that boycott!

Given all that is happening to America nowadays (especially including the demonization of Arizona and the attempt to destroy her with boycotts, lawsuits, and failure to defend her border), isn’t it time for Americans to rethink their anti-Serbian biases? These are all based on media LIES—brought to us by Soros, the muzzies, and other miscreants. These are the same miscreants who are now painting the vast majority of Americans as Bigots, while bashing Arizona and continuing to bash Orthodox Christian Serbia!!!!

You are correct. The whole NATO intervention in the Balkans was directly against the NATO charter.
