Juan Williams has been fired by National Public Radio for being politically incorrect.
Wikipedia defines political correctness as …
“a term which denotes language, ideas, policies, and behavior seen as seeking to minimize social and institutional offense in occupational, gender, racial, cultural, sexual orientation, disability, and age-related contexts.”
A simpler definition is “liberal thought-control.” Mr. Williams, himself a liberal, was fired for expressing a thought with which 99% of America agrees:
“I mean, look, Bill [O’Reilly], 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 a plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they’re identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
Mr. Williams commented on the remarks made by the Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad:
“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.”
NPR alleges that Mr. William’s comment is bigoted. It is?
Do you remember a remark Jesse Jackson made back in the 80s, something to the effect that if he saw a young black man walking up behind him on a darkened street, he’d be worried. Mr Jackson spoke the obvious. Young black men commit a disproportionate percentage of crimes in this county. Commentators appreciated his honesty. But Mr. Jackson himself is African-American. That made it acceptable to the thought-police.
I frequently disagree with Mr. Williams. But he got a bum deal on this one.
Why do you think the mainstream media is losing viewers, readers, and listeners? Because their audience doesn’t trust them because they know they’re getting a filtered message, one filtered by political correctness.
