NPR Fires Williams Over Muslim Comment

From New York Times:

NPR Fires Analyst Over Comments on Muslims

By BRIAN STELTER
October 20, 2010

NPR has terminated its contract with Juan Williams, one of its senior news analysts, after he made comments about Muslims on the Fox News Channel.

NPR said in a statement that it gave Mr. Williams notice of his termination on Wednesday night.

The move came after Mr. Williams, who is also a Fox News political analyst, appeared on the “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday. On the show, the host, Bill O’Reilly, asked him to respond to the notion that the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.” Mr. O’Reilly said, “The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet.”

Mr. Williams said he concurred with Mr. O’Reilly.

He continued: “I mean, 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.”

Hopefully, losing his job at NPR is just the beginning. And that CAIR and the ACLU will see to it that Mr. Williams is prosecuted and jailed for ‘hate speech’ for such an outrageous statement.

Mr. Williams also made reference to the Pakistani immigrant who pleaded guilty this month to trying to plant a car bomb in Times Square. “He said the war with Muslims, America’s war is just beginning, first drop of blood. I don’t think there’s any way to get away from these facts,” Mr. Williams said.

NPR said in its statement that the remarks “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.”

They certainly have a point. NPR appears to have very strict rules about speaking the obvious truth about any number of subjects.

The public radio organization said it thanked him for many years of service. Mr. Williams did not immediately respond on Wednesday night to an e-mail seeking comment.

Mr. Williams’s contributions on Fox raised eyebrows at NPR in the past. In February 2009, NPR said it had asked that he stop being identified on “The O’Reilly Factor” as a “senior correspondent for NPR,” even though that title was accurate

The above paragraph is classic. It really is all you need to know about the NPR – and the New York Times – in only two sentences.

By the way, did George Soros demand that NPR fire Juan Williams? After all, he is paying for their reporters these days.

    I have a brother in law who believes NPR is truly Fair & Balanced. Course he’s a Columbia grad & a communist. If it weren’t for their blues & jazz radio, I wouldn’t know where they are.

    Like Rush says, sometimes you need a reference point like their news & opinion so that we never forget the nature of the liberal species. Then again Nancy Pelosi is quite capable in that department all by herself…..for a little while.

  2. proreason says:

    This doesn’t have much to do with political correctness.

    It’s about stalinist tactics.

    Firing Williams is a poster stuck to the wall with a knife….it’s for everybody in the future who might dare to disagree with the politburo at NPR. If you do that, you can look forward to the bread line.

    It will be interesting to see how many other ‘correspondents’ resign from NPR. After all, aren’t they all courageous defenders of free speech?

    My prediction…..0 resignations.

    • Reality Bytes says:

      Good one pro.

    • GL0120 says:

      How many other NPR “Correspondents” will resign?
      Courageous defenders of free speech.
      You’re really a successful stand up comic, right?
      If not, you’re missing a very lucrative career; I’m sure people would happily pay to hear comedic lines like those!

    • Petronius says:

      If memory serves, Nerobama’s “typical-white-person” grandmother was thrown under the bus for a similar remark.

      You either believe in free speech or you don’t.

      The Lefties at NPR don’t. Indeed, as a general rule, Liberals don’t.

      Roger Ailes has just awarded Juan Williams a bigger role and an expanded contract at Fox News.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      Liberal, hear thyself…

    • proreason says:

      Doc Zero agrees, with less colorful language but a more compelling theory.

      http://hotair.com/greenroom/archives/2010/10/22/juan-williams-and-the-preference-cascade/

      “….As described by Glenn Reynolds in a classic 2002 essay, a preference cascade occurs when people trapped inside a manufactured consensus suddenly realize that many other people share their doubts. Preference falsification works by making doubters feel isolated and alone. In a totalitarian society, the dissenter fears that if he speaks up, his will be a lone voice, easily squashed by the enforcers of the regime. When dissenters realize they are not alone, and the true strength of their numbers becomes apparent, “invincible” regimes vanish with astonishing speed.

      The same effect can occur without brutal oppression, when fear of ostracism and ridicule cause people to suppress their own doubts. This kind of preference falsification requires strict discipline from the makers of opinion. Since a free society makes it very easy for individuals to change their opinions, they must be prevented from even considering such a change. Manufactured consensus is very fragile in a competitive arena of ideas, when there is no fearsome penalty for a “Fresh Air” listener who decides to switch over to Rush Limbaugh….”

      Remember the term “preference cascade”. It will be critical to defeat the Moron in 2012.

  3. untrainable says:

    Yet another mile marker on the road to fascism. The libs are starting to eat their own (I keep hearing Rodney Dangerfield in my head (“Now I know why tigers eat their young!”) . Maybe the wayward Juan will open his eyes and finally see. Maybe he will begin to actually look at what is going on around him and begin to think for himself. Maybe he will start commenting on the news without the liberal blinders. Well, when you side with (and propagandize for) a group of communist wanna-be world rulers, you get what you get. How are they going to introduce Juan now? “… and Juan Williams, unemployed liberal lackey and Fox News contributor.” (loser)

  4. jrmcdonald says:

    Gee, they fire Jaun, and Soros just happens to buy NPR new reporters…

  5. Astravogel says:

    In respons to Mike Huckabee’s call to cut Federal funding
    for NPR, they state that they only get 2% from us. OK,
    that’s a good start to cutting and they probably won’t miss
    it. Let them what likes it fund it. Ditto National Endowment
    for the so-called Arts.

    • beautyofreason says:

      It’s interesting to me that many left-slanting news sources that silence alternate views demand public financing. In the UK anyone who owns a television is charged a subscription fee to cover the costs of BBC. Last time I checked the BBC website they were featuring a “Muslim of the month” side story showing a guy spray painting a scene of an angry horde of Palestinians engulfing Israel in fire.

  6. proreason says:

    The more I think about this, the more I think the backlash is going to be huge.

    My hunch is that Juan Williams is one of the most popular broadcasters in the country. He is one of the few who is able to express liberal opinions without being condescending or hateful. In contrast to Alan Combs (who is actually a lot better than most of them), Juan is positively cuddly. Juan also does a good job filling in for O’Reilly. I don’t think I’ve heard anything vitriolic about Mr. Williams anywhere in the blogosphere. Sometimes he is called clueless, but never called the things most libwits are called.

    This is one very likeable guy. Much of the country will treat him as a hero, including some African Americans who are going to be pretty angry about this.

    NPR is going to pay a steep price for this.

    And Republicans will pick up some votes as well.

    This item may be just the place for…OBAMA MEETS NIXON! Two great Americans side by side to share some “Forward Planning”!

    A nation divided, a people torn, a Presidency in trouble. Business as usual in America I’m afraid…at 3 am President Obama walked the corridors of the White House, lost in lonely reflection.

    “I wonder what would be a good title for my next volume of self-eulogy?” mused the anxious Indonesian or Hawaiian or whatever the hell he really is, drawing deeply on his ever burning Kool. The refreshing menthol flavour filled his lungs. “How about ‘The Hopefulness of Change’? Naah…makes me sound like some panhandler. What about ‘Stimulus! How I Fixed America’? Maybe not; ‘fixed’ makes it sound like I got the place spayed…”

    “You need to get tough, sonny boy” growled a deep voice. “Play hard ball. Serve ‘em a few helpings of (expletive deleted) whip”.

    “Huh? Who’s there? Who spoke?” Obama scanned the halls in surprise but all he saw were the gold framed, hand painted oil paintings of his predecessors. And some carpet. And those crystal chandeliers Michelle didn’t like. And his ever burning Kool. “Hello?” he queried querulously.

    “Over here, dummy” said the voice. “And stub out that coffin nail; smoking’s a dirty habit”.

    “Dummy? Coffin nail? What’s going on? Who’s talking? Is it…one of you? The paintings? Can this be happening? Is it you, Lyndon? Or you Jimmuh? Please don’t let it be you, George”.

    “No, it’s me – Dick”.

    “Dick Nixon?”

    “No, Dick Cavett. Who the (expletive deleted) do you think? Of course it’s me”.

    Obama went even paler as his eyes fell upon the bewhiskered, bejowled, furtive eyed image of the country’s 37th president. “But, but why are you talking to me?”

    “Because you need my help, that’s why. You’re in big trouble, fella, and we chief executives have to stick together”.

    “I’m not in trouble!” lied Obama. “Big or any other kind! Everything’s going great for me; it’s all according to plan”.

    “Yeah, if your plan is to be a one term failure and get kicked out of politics. Those midterms are gonna (expletive deleted) kill you and you’ve got no comeback, no nothing. Nada. So listen up pally; I was the greatest political success story of the last fifty years and I know of what I speak. With this face and this attitude I still climbed to the top of the (expletive deleted) pile and got elected President. Not once but twice; unlike some people I could mention. You need to listen to what I have to say”.

    “Okay, okay: point taken. Wow, this is so weird, talking to a painting. So, what’s your advice?”

    “Kick ‘em in the nuts! Kick ‘em right in the nuts and keep kicking ‘em in the nuts! That’s how you handle those lousy peaceniks!”

    “Gee, I don’t know” temporized Obama, unable to make up his mind as usual. “I thought we were the peaceniks. And besides, I was elected because I was seen as a thoughtful pragmatist who could safely guide the country along the path of positive change”.

    “Bullpockey! You were elected because you were a clean shirt and a loud voice who wasn’t Bush! Now you’re on your own and you got nothing so you need to mix it up if you want to stay in the saddle. There’s only one thing that matters in politics –winning! And there’s only one rule: screw them before they screw you!”

    “I know that already” said Obama. “I’m from Chicago!”

    “That’s not the way I hear it” growled Nixon. “Anyhoo, you need to abuse, I mean use the power of the Presidency to save your skinny (expletive deleted). I kid you not. You’ve got the IRS, the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, George Soros and his billions, the Army and that whole Homeland Security Gestapo to do your dirty work for you and even better, the media are still eating out of your pants, I mean hand. Especially the Jews. You can get away with murder – if you’ve got the balls for it”.

    “Like Hillary” murmured Obama, lost in thoughtful consideration of the options as usual. “Maybe its necessary to, as you say, ‘mix it up’ some more and take a few risks with the Constitution but it seems so harsh, so cynical. Am I really that sort of man? Is it our actions or what is in our hearts which defines our character? To be a (expletive deleted) or not to be a (expletive deleted), that is the question. Whether t’is…”

    “Can it, Hamlet!” snapped Nixon, his eyes blazing with Quaker fury. “You are exactly that kind of man and you know it. You’ll send troops to fight and die in Afghanistan in a war you don’t believe in and don’t want to win because you think there’s few lousy votes in it for you. How harsh and cynical is that, huh? Huh? Can’t answer me, can you? ‘Nuff said. So don’t you get on your high horse with me, mister”.

    An awkward and abashed Obama lowered his gaze and lit another Kool. Maybe Nixon was right; maybe life truly was an endless Manichean struggle for the soul of man, between the impulse toward the dark and the light. As his first grade imam once said…

    “You know what, son” murmured Nixon “You remind me of myself”.

    Obama looked up in amazement. Now that was a surprise. He thought he could glimpse a salty, self pitying tear oozing from one of Nixon’s shifty little eyes.

    “That’s right” continued the jewel in the crown of Whittier High. “A younger, less pasty version of me. The same anger, the same wise ass arrogance papering over the same deep, deep insecurities…”

    “My insecurities aren’t deep” squeaked Obama. “They’re blatant! Right on the surface! By Allah, what sort of man writes two books about himself before he’s even turned forty? An insecure, over ambitious narcissist is what kind! And it’s all because of my father, that lousy deadbeat, abandoning Mom and me…”

    “Tell me about it” commiserated Nixon. “But I showed ‘em, I showed ‘em all. Oh yeah. Maybe I wasn’t the smartest guy in school. Maybe I wasn’t a pretty boy like Jack Kennedy. Maybe I was creepy and strange but I showed them. I did what I needed to do and I got what I wanted. I didn’t do it alone, natch, I had a good team to help do my dirty work, oh yeah. Haldemann, Ehrlichmann, Eichmann…great guys one and all!”

    “My team is mostly resigning” sighed Obama.

    “That’s because you smell like a loser!” roared Nixon. “You need to smell like a winner and to do that you need to wise up and kick some (expletive deleted) nuts!”

    “You’re right!” exclaimed Obama, listening to someone for a change. “You’re right! So tell me what I need to do”.

    “Attaboy!” enthused Nixon. “Now you’re getting with the program. Okay, the first thing is… (there follows an18 ½ minute gap in the narrative, unexplained by anything other than the author running out of ideas). “So that’s what you have to do. Any questions?”

    “No sir, Mr President. Let’s see: bugs, break ins, secret funds, plumbers, bag man, pay offs, executive privilege, don’t get it all on tape… I think I’ve got it all”.

    “No tapes! Whatever you do, no tapes! Well, okay, you’re ready -now get out there and make me proud!”

    “Yessir! And the next set of nuts I kick or secretly cause to be kicked, well, that ruptured scrotum’s gonna have your name on it!”

    “Good boy!”

    I bet that NPR will be ‘overwhelmed’ by a lot more than 378 emails over his firing. I know that at dawn I was firing one off to them. How tolerant of the very people who for 8 damn years whined – Speaking truth to power, dissent is patriotic and free speech (and assassination ‘chic’) is a 1st Amendment Right. What a bunch of hypocritical liars.

    What a bunch of pathetic NPR hypocrites! Besides being cowards, all of ’em. Can you imagine even one volunteering to push that serving cart toward the United 93 cockpit to try to save themselves, their fellow passengers and their nation? You better believe Soros had something to do with it. That thief and criminal didn’t have to prod them much, however; they were just waiting to can their token for his straying from the plantation.

    And you’re absolutely correct, Astravogel, that 2% is so puny, they don’t need it. National Public Radio is now and always has been a leftist “think” tank rather than a news organization. Why should any of us, who recognize bilge when we hear it, have to pay for the privilege?!

  12. Rusty Shackleford says:

    No worries. I suspect that NPR’s listenership is dwindling into the microscopic and will go the way of other left/socialist agenda media. Plus people do prefer the truth and have been choosing so with great enthusiasm by choosing alternative media, mainly the internet.

    If the socialists want to dump their own money into it, fine. I only object because they use taxpayer money to spew their agenda. Which, of course is not only unethical, but a crime if taken to the absolute letter of the law. What a great angle, to stand on the box and decry conservatism, using conservatives’ own money. Cute.

  13. beautyofreason says:

    Muslim is the new black. To criticize Islam, even in a considerate and peripheral manner, is no longer an option. The White House has made that point rather clear in their political appointments and foreign policy. NPR is simply following suit.

    Remember the “devout Muslim” appointed to Homeland Security who gave a speech in favor of the Ayatollah Khomeini BEFORE Obama appointed him? It seems like the enemy of liberty is in our own government, sad though it is to say.

    This may be the first time in modern public discourse where we are expected to treat an idea like race, hair color, or some other inherited trait. What John Smith, you oppose communism? Well you are a racist, bigoted #*”&! Can you imagine someone saying this after the millions killed by Stalin, Pol Pot and Mao Zedong?

    Of course Muslims would like to believe that criticizing their religion makes a person the scum of the earth – and the left is willing to oblige. Muslims believe that all people inherit Islam at birth and “revert” later in life after reading the Koran and the pathologies of its warlord, Mohammad. And of course this haughty belief is why they want people who leave Islam to be killed.

    In any case we can take NPR’s point as a warning. Remember the secular elites of Iran who gave their country away to Islamic baboons trapped in the 7th century.

    Do not trust a liberal in defense of the country. Obama has betrayed the people’s trust through his own well-intentioned narcissism.

      To criticize is-lame is to critcize barry. And that, as you are well aware, is unacceptable.

  14. hushpuppy says:

    Mara Liasson is also catching catching a lot of flack from the oh-so-tolerant libtards at NPR:

    Mara Liasson, National Public Radio’s award-winning political correspondent, is taking heat over her appearances on Fox News Channel after Juan Williams’ made comments about Muslims on the cable network that cost him his job with the public broadcaster.

    The liberal media watchdog group, Media Matters for America, argued on its blog that NPR needs to address the “thorny issue” of Liasson’s work for Fox in light of the Williams controversy. Senior fellow Eric Boehlert stressed that Williams, a frequent guest on “The O’Reilly Factor,” had a far more problematic history with Fox than Liasson. Many NPR listeners have complied about Williams’ statements on Fox for years, and he was asked not to identify himself as an NPR journalist while appearing on Fox. Liasson, however, appears on “Special Report with Brit Hume” and “Fox News Sunday”, shows that are a far cry from Bill O’Reilly’s controversial talk show.

    NPR declined to comment for this story.

    “I’m not suggesting Liasson has said anything as offensive as Williams, or that she has that kind of track record while appearing on Fox,” Boehlert writes.. ” I’m just saying that if you look at NPR’s code of ethics, there’s simply no way Liasson should be making appearances on Fox.”

    It’s quite a long article but this needs to be cross referenced to William’s experience.

    artboy – you actually summed up the situation in the first few words when you wrote:

    “A nation divided, a people torn…”

    This situation is directly applicable by the words of Christ when He commented in Matt. 12:25:

    “Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.”

    It’s so obvious that many commentators like Beck and Limbaugh can see it, and have commented on it!

There is a couple of them that wear all black, or black with a white veil, and it’s like the movie Scream or a Halloween costume. Freaks. And they are rude, make scenes, they give dirty looks, and strut like they are queens. I want to know what the black means.

    Oh no! Its OBAMA MEETS NIXON Part Two with… “Situation Report”!

    “So, how’s the family? Your wife and little daughters, young, um, Malaria and little Cholera?” asked Nixon, his little eyes darting around awkwardly. “They still alive?”

    “They’re, um, fine, Dick. Just fine.” answered Obama, hoping no one would wander by and see him talking to a painting.

    “And that dog of yours; still drinking out of the toilet?”

    “Yeah, he is. Unclean animals, dogs” mumbled Obama. He hated it when Nixon tried to act all “human” and everything; since he was so patently bad at it. “Do you want to hear how I’ve been doing with, you know, what we talked about?”

    “Sure, sure” growled Nixon, his eyes flaring with renewed malice. “Operation Nutcracker. Tell me all about it, especially the sordid details”.

    “Well, first thing I did was to go see George Soros…”

    “Good, good” rumbled Nixon. “Go to the Jew and get the (expletive deleted) money all lined up first…that’s how you do it”.

    “Thanks. Well, I went to his fortress in that hollowed out volcano and they showed me right in…”

    “Why not? You’re the Man” cooed Nixon and Obama beamed with pleasure. This was a lot more praise than he’d ever had from his own father; that was for sure.

    “And George seemed really glad to see me. He sat there, stroking that Angora cat of his, and he pushes the button on the intercom and he goes “Kaito! Bring zum green tea fur mein guest, schnell!’ and then he says to me ‘Zo, jung mann du haff at lasd komm to zee Onkle Georg. Id’s bin ein long time, ja? Ich haff eine kleine neglected been feelink’, so I said ‘Sorry Uncle George, but I’ve been pretty busy lately’”.

    “I didn’t know you could do accents” growled Nixon. “You’re a pretty clever fella. Well, so what happened next?”

    “And George said’ Ja, ja! Ein buzzy liddle bee. I zee you on der TayVay und on der Rundfunk und effery tag im alles dese Gazetten und Zeitungenn’”.

    “Huh?” said Nixon.

    “Yeah, I said ‘Huh?’ too and George rolled his eyes and he goes ‘I said I see you on TV and on the radio and in the papers, you monoglot Yankee schwein! Can’t you fur ein moment indulge mein exotick Central European speech patterns bitte? Himmel Gott!’ and I said ‘huh?’ again and he kind of lost his temper and threw the cat across the room and turned around and just stared at those big computer screens he has on the wall with all that stuff about the currency markets he’s manipulating and after a few minutes I kind of coughed into my hand and he spins around and he says “Ist du schtill here? Vat iz id du vant, huh? I’m ein busy mann!’ and I said ‘I need your help, Uncle George and I started to tell him about our plans for Operation Nutcracker…”

    “Sell it, don’t tell it” advised Nixon. “That’s my motto – along with the one about screwing people before they screw you”.

    “Yeah, and he looked all interested and after I finished he says ‘Du know, jung mann, ven I vaz ein liddle boy in Budapest I vun time had to dress like ein girl and deny mein own religion in order to save mein life from der Nazis. Do du know vat dat makes me?’ And I said ‘A coward and a bad Jew?’ And he said ‘Nein! Id makes me ein ruthless survivor. Id makes me somevun who vill do vat needs to be done – und dat’s vhy I like your plan and I vill help you mit alles der cash du need!’

    “Excellent” snickered Nixon.

    “That’s what I said too, Dick. Anyway, George says ‘How much does du need? Und in vat currency? I got dollars, pounds, Euros, yen, rubles, Albanian lechs. Help yourselbst!’”

    “Gold is always good” muttered Nixon. “Mexican dollars, krugerrands, ingots…”

    “But” continued Obama “I said ‘Nein, I mean No Uncle George; I have tons of money left over from the campaign. I want you to help me with the media, the control and intimidation thereof’ and he goes like ‘Zo, der honeymoon finally over ist, ja?’ and I says like ‘Ja, kinda’ and he goes ‘Hokey dokey; who fur der chopping block ist?’ and I say ‘Juan Williams: he needs to get kicked in the nuts bad’’ and he goes ‘Fur what doing?‘ and I said ‘Juan Williams is about the last sane liberal left; fire him and it clears a minor obstacle and it sends a message to his colleagues – a message about mouths and the keeping shut thereof and Olbermannian lunacy, the career benefits thereof’ and George looks at me in the kind of appraising way he has, like you’re some food he’s thinking about sending back to the kitchen and he’s quiet for a minute and then he say ‘So Herr President, du bist quite ein nasty little piece of werk ven you vant to be, ist du nicht?’ and I said ‘Well, I had a good teacher’”.

    Nixon gave a nervous little smile of pleasure; he wasn’t used to hearing anyone say nice things about him.

    “And then George grins and he says ‘Nicht problem kamerad; Vuan Villiams ist as gut as todt. Ein vun vay ticket to der shark tank fur him ist it!’ and I says ‘Danke, Uncle George’ and he goes ‘Ach, dat’s vut friends are fur. Komm up und zee me anytime, jungen’ and he patted me on the cheek, real friendly”.

    “Well Soros bought you and (expletive deleted) paid for you” snarled Nixon. “The least he can do is protect his investment”.

    “That’s what I thought” nodded Obama. “Anyway, I’ve had enough nut kicking for one day. Is it okay if I go play some golf?”

    “Sure, son, sure” rumbled Nixon. “You’ve earned it but remember, you’re back on smashed testicle detail first thing Monday!”

    Yessir, Dad – I mean Dick!”

    Even Obama relates the growth of wearing traditional muslim attire with militant, intolerant, extremist muslims.

    The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama 2006
    excerpts
    pg 278] “All of which underscores perhaps the most profound shift in Indonesia – the growth of militant, fundamentalist Islam in the country. Traditionally, Indonesians practiced a tolerant, almost synthetic brand of the faith, infused with the Buddhist, Hindu, and animist traditions of earlier periods. Under the watchful eye of an explicitly secular Suharto government, alcohol was permitted, non-Muslims practiced their faith free from persecution, and women – sporting skirts or sarongs as they rode buses or scooters on the way to work – possessed all the rights that men possessed.

    Today, Islamic parties make up one of the largest political blocs, with many calling for the imposition of sharia, or Islamic law. Seeded by funds from Middle East, Wahhabist clerics, schools, and mosques now dot the countryside.
