National Public Radio yesterday fired News analyst Juan Williams, his unforgivable sin, daring to speak the truth about Islam on FoxNew’s O’Reilly Factor. How dare Juan Williams, an African-American liberal, have the unmitigated gall to stray from the liberal plantation and comment at FoxNew’s, but more importantly how dare he speak ill’s of the Religion of Peace, or for that matter, speak his own mind.
Who does that Juan Williams think he is, liberals all know that freedom of speech means you are free to speak but only so long as you speak the correct speech. The liberal mantra isn’t “Freedom of speech for me but not for thee” for no damned reason and Juan of all people should have known that. Yet he dared to speak the truth, a truth that liberals find offensive and repugnant, therefore NPR clearly had no choice but to lay the whip across Juan’s back.
This truth that Juan dared to speak, what was it? Poor old Juan had the audacity to point out the inconvenient truth, that while all Muslims may not be terrorists, by a long shot the vast majority of terrorists are Muslims. Not the imaginary terrorist that the liberals use as strawmen in their intellectually dishonest arguments, no not the Christians, or Buddhist or Hindus, whose acts of terrorism in the last 100 years can be counted on ones fingers, but the real genuine walk into a busy market place wearing a bomb-vest and kill innocent women and children Muslim terrorists.
No, Juan make the unforgivable mistake of going on that evil middle of the road moderate FoxNew’s and reminding people that it is Muslims who kill anyone who offends them, and everything offends Muslims. “I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the Civil Rights movement in this country,” Williams said on the show. “But when I get on a 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.”
How did National Propaganda Radio defend their actions? With the typical liberal demented lies and obfuscations. “The statement says Williams’ remarks “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.” What a load of crap, Juan was being exactly what NPR pay’s him to be, a news analyst. Apparently what undermines NPR’s creditability is truthfully analyzing the news.
Now truth be told, as a conservative I find it distasteful to stand up for Juan Williams, because make no mistake about it, Juan is a liberal. However that said, as a conservative I find injustice even more disgusting than standing up for a liberal who has been unfairly treated and maligned. I usually disagree with Juan, however unlike most liberals I do find Juan to be an honest man with integrity, something quite rare in liberals.
To see one of the few genuinely honest intelligent and forthright liberals in America treated with such disrespect is more than I can bare and sit quietly by and watch. I have no choice but to rise in Juan’s defense and denounce in the harshest terms possible the politically correct demagoguery which led National Propaganda Radio to dismiss him. The management at NPR should be fired immediately and NPR defuned by congress and forced to become a regular for profit company having to defend it’s agenda in the commercial arena of idea’s alongside the conservative talk radio and radio news outlets.
The time has come for NPR to sink or swim in accordance’s to their merit’s in the market place of ideas.
