Here’s a portion of the “Action Alert” item from CAIR’s website:
CAIR Action Alert #625:
Juan Williams says airline passengers in ‘Muslim garb’ make him ‘nervous’
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 10/20/10) — CAIR is calling on American Muslims and other people of conscience to ask National Public Radio (NPR) to address analyst Juan Williams’ statement that airline passengers in “Muslim garb” make him “nervous.”
During an appearance Monday on Fox’s “O’Reilly Factor,” Williams backed Bill O’Reilly’s recent claim that “Muslims killed us on 9/11″ and then said: “[W]hen 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.”
Folks, this story is only going to get bigger. There are a LOT of folks who have a lot to say about this, and it’s going to get ugly (for NPR, that is). Seriously, folks. All hell is going to break loose on this one. NPR needs to be DEFUNDED NOW! Stay tuned.
NPR fired Juan Williams today after CAIR complained on him regarding comments he made on Bill O’Reilly’s show on Monday regarding political correctness in society. At the heart of the matter was O’Reilly’s appearance on The View, where Whoopi & Joy got their panties in a bunch over a comment that Bill made stating (correctly) that “Muslims killed us” on 9/11 and walked off the set. Juan and Mary Katherine Ham were on O’Reilly’s show to discuss that, and Juan made a very candid admission and he stand beside what he said. I, too, as well as many other Americans, probably feel the exact same way Juan feels.
Juan is no conservative, but even he has free speech rights…ESPECIALLY since NPR is funded by American TAX DOLLARS! That funding needs to end TODAY! And don’t you find it just a teensy bit odd that George Soros recently gave NPR $1.8M to hire 100 journalists? There is no such thing as coincidences; especially when it involves George Soros and the left-wing smear machine.
As the discussion proceeded, Jennifer Loven said she had spoken with the White House and that they were really concerned about the politics of it all, and getting ahead of the PR curve. Ingraham rightly mentions shortly thereafter that that is the problem; the current administration is more concerned about brand “Obama” than they are the safety and security of this country. Loven later says she doesn’t think that’s the main concern, but it’s certainly one of the primary concerns.
Then Juan dips his naieve toe in the water, stating that “we all know” this was a lone-wolf attack and not tied to Al Qaeda, to which Ingraham and Kristol both repeatedly and rightly state “we don’t know that!” and we don’t – we DON’T know that.
Last night on Bill O’Reilly, Mary Katherine Ham & Juan Williams were back to discuss the situation with Rush Limbaugh, as well as liberal talk radio host, Warren Ballentine, who told Juan he should go back to the “porch” on an episode last week. O’Reilly missed the audio, but wanted to bring Juan back to discuss it.
I swear if any white person would have told any black person on TV to get back on the “porch,” there would be hell to pay, and Sharpton, Jackson and the other race pimps would be on every liberal network 24/7, demanding that white person’s termination/castigation/repudiation, and what other punishments they could attempt to bring to bear.
What a wonderfully PC system we have, don’t we? It will be the death of this nation.
