When is a Liberal Bad? When they Punish their Own!
The liberal media showed it's true colors when NPR fired their Senior Political Analyst Juan Williams, a decorated Black Journalist with a long and distinguished career with the Washington Post and NPR after Williams made comments about the Muslim controversy on the Fox News Bill O'Reilly.
Of course Fox has long been feared and hated by the Obama administration and is hated by the far left community because the Fox News ratings have buried the combined ratings of all the liberal shows and that has left the liberals bristling since Obama got elected.
Still there are a lot of good liberals and good liberal causes but when the liberals punish a fellow liberal for exercising free speech, now that is a true censoring of free speech. I wonder if we can get the liberal American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to defend the liberal reporter in a suit against the liberal National Public Broadcasting Networks over the right to free speech.
Sounds like a boondoggle for the liberal Trial Lawyers Association.
Here's what he said.
On Monday, O'Reilly asked Williams if there is a "Muslim dilemma" in the United States. The NPR analyst and longtime Fox News contributor agreed with O'Reilly that such a thing exists, and added that "political correctness can lead to some kind of paralysis where you don't address reality."
"I mean, look, Bill, I'm not a bigot," Williams continued. "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."
Some commentators and a leading Muslim civil rights organization took issue with Williams' comments.
