NPR Under Fire After Canning Juan Williams

As reported by Fox News: "News analyst Juan Williams' firing from National Public Radio for comments he made about being nervous when flying alongside devout Muslims has sparked a public outcry that includes calls for investigations and a cut in public funding to the broadcaster."

Talk about "Political Correctness" gone wild, this is more proof that we in America are slowly losing our right to voice our opinions, known as free speech, and the country is fast being overtaken by the whims of Muslims, represented by CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations). I don't always agree with Juan Williams, but after working for NPR for more than ten years, his firing for expressing a personal feeling without even a chance to meet face to face with his NPR superiors is low-down, unfair, and cowardly.

I am so sick of this political correctness crap in America. Juan Williams is also a Fox News Analyst. A lot of people believe Fox News is strictly conservative, which is not entirely true. I believe Mr Williams is fair and if anything, I think he often leans more to the left, which should satisfy liberals. There is also an obvious double standard going on in America. How come people like Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, Black Panther leadership, NAACP, ACLU and the like are able to express their "feelings," but others cannot? There SHOULD BE ripple effects as one of my follerwers suggests.

  1. Wess, no arguement from me but this is the major problem i have been voicing about. People not standing up and speaking out unless it effects them !

  2. "People not standing up and not speaking out unless it affects them" is a condition that has been caused by several reasons, among the most salient are that the silent majority has been far too quiet for too long - that is changing. People are beginning to feel the pinch of allowing only a few elitist, outspoken and power Hungary few control their lives; it's also been, as I have said many times, a "me" society. If it benefits them, it's okay, or if it doesn't bother them, it's okay.

  3. NPR has gone so far left that they could no longer tolerate a moderate in their midst. Their loss and Fox News' gain. They just offered Juan Williams a $2 million contract.
