NPR Axes Williams For Straying From The Herd

National Public Radio (NPR) is funded by donations and US taxpayer dollars and it is supposed to provide unbiased reporting. The reality is that NPR is a partisan leftwing organization that serves as a mouthpiece for the Democrat party.

Juan Williams was an employee at NPR and he also appeared as a guest on a number of shows on FOX News. I rarely agreed with his point of view but I always found him to be thoughtful and well versed in politics. Sometimes his reasoning changed my mind on a topic and other times I thought his views clearly wrong but I always knew that his views were thoughtful and based in reality.

NPR was not happy that Williams appeared on FOX. They did not like the NPR being associated with a conservative network and they were out to get him.

Make no mistake, NPR has no problem with left wing liberal/progressive types and is more than happy to be associated with them. George Soros is providing money for NPR to hire 100 political reporters and you can bet that they will all be left wing partisans, contrary to what a network funded with taxpayer money should be.

Recently, Bill O’Reilly was on The View and he got into a tiff because he said Muslims attacked us on 9/11 (which is as true as saying the Japanese attacked us in WWII). Williams was a guest on O’Reilly’s show and made a statement that provided NPR what it needed to fire him.

Williams responded: “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.”

Williams also warned O’Reilly against blaming all Muslims for “extremists,” saying Christians shouldn’t be blamed for Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.

Williams did not stay on the plantation and spit out the left wing mantra so NPR ended his contract.

I can’t imagine Williams would have been fired if he had said that he worries when he gets on a plane and sees military guys because Tim McVeigh was in the military or if he said that he worries when he sees people dressed in Christian garb because they kill abortion doctors.

He might have been fired for that but I seriously doubt it.

He was fired because he said something about a group of people who have claimed the mantle of victimhood, a designation the left is more than happy to promote.

It is unacceptable to say such things especially if you are from the liberal plantation because liberals do not tolerate any point of view that does not agree with them. One only needs to look at the NAALCP political report about the racist TEA Party to see that if one does not agree with the left then that person must be a racist (homophobe, Islamophobe, etc). Much like the NPR, the NAALCP is full of left wing people who are more into politics than doing what they were intended to do (that report is designed to have an affect on the upcoming election and serves NO other purpose).

Williams is part of that liberal establishment and he was shut down quickly because he went to an organization that presents points of view from both sides of the political aisle but is the demon of the left. George Soros is spending millions of dollars to shut down FOX and anyone associated with it. His money to NPR was seed money to rid the organization of those who strayed from the plantation and to hire partisan liberal reporters.

Williams found out the hard way how tolerant the left is.

Maybe now he will wise up and become conservative where a diversity of opinions is welcome.

Just look at the comments of the NPR article. A number of people say they did not agree with Williams but appreciated his point of view. Those people are not the liberals though there are a few libs who stray from the plantation long enough to commend him.

This episode is a warning shot from Soros and the rest of the people trying to ruin this country. The message is loud and clear, stray from the herd and you will be taken out.

Soros is into extinguishing people who do not toe the liberal, new world order line. Look at how he is going after Glenn Beck…

As a young man George Soros helped the Nazis and now he is helping the Socialists. He is an evil man and the sooner he meets his father, Satan, the better.

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

    You are not permitted to be a member of the left (NPR et al) if you are a heretic to their religion. Disagreement cannot be permitted.

    To me, the worst part is that there are so many who support this government-supported silencing of opinions, often in the name of, “I’m just doing my job.”

  2. I am reminded from a relevant snippet of dialogue from the old M*A*S*H TV show:

    Maj. Burns: Normality is everyone doing and thinking the same thing!

    Trapper: But what about individuality, Frank?

    Maj. Burns: Individuality’s fine…as long as we all do it together!

    Verbum sat sapienti.

    And on the other side of the coin: Smear Islam and win a $2 million contract to contribute more on Fox News (of which you essentially call fair and balanced with a straight face). We live in interesting times.

    Funny, I don’t remember conservatives talking about “straying from the herd” or the “mantle of victimhood” when Helen Thomas went on her crazy rant against Israel.

    • Big Dog says:

      Telling someone how you feel about something is not smearing Islam.

      Funny, Jackson made the same comments about blacks (and Obama said his GM felt that way about blacks, being a typical white person) and none of these folks were excoriated.

      Williams said he was uncomfortable and then went to great lengths to say it was not all of the Muslims and that people had to be careful when they discussed it.

      Helen Thomas has had years of inappropriate remarks and being an anti Semite. Williams is widely respected and is defended as a man who does not have a bigoted bone in his body.

      FOX expanded his role, good for them. They are fair and balanced. They have plenty of people with opposing views on the opinion shows.

      And we know if O’Reilly got canned none of the major networks would hire him so tell me, which is actually fair and balanced?

      • Adam says:

        Fox News loves to scoop up radicals and folks who otherwise lose their place at other networks. You call it fair and balanced. I call it a freak show.

        Fox News is a radical political mouthpiece for the conservative movement in America. I’d worry about their ratings except that I’m half-way convinced a good chunk of their audience is just watching in utter bewilderment like folks who can’t look away from a car wreck.

    I like the latest comment from NPR:

    “Even though NPR handled this situation badly, the fact remains that NPR must uphold its journalistic standards,”

    Well, at least NPR is admitting that they’re biased and terrified of Islam, even if they don’t know it.

  5. Blake says:

    NPR’s “journalistic standards” are about the same as a whore’s- with about the same results- if you are not careful, you could become infected- like Nina Totenberg- look up some of the bile she’s spewed- and she is still there, because it is Liberal bile.
    That is OK for NPR-
