Was C.A.I.R behind the firing of Juan Williams from NPR?
I can't believe that I'm coming to the defense of Juan Williams on something. This guy normally makes my blood boil every time I see him opening his mouth on the Fox News Channel. Be that is it may, it was flat out wrong for the political correct, pseudo intellectual pinhead who run National Public Radio to fire Williams for speaking the truth about what he said about Muslims. I truly hope there will be a huge backlash against NPR over their overreaction to the truth. Juan my be a liberal, but at least the man isn't a naive fool when it comes to common sense on this issue. Juan was a guest on Bill O'Reilly's show yesterday, and the topic was about Muslims in America. Juan stated in a response to Bill
"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".
Juan went on to warn Bil against blaming all Muslims for "extremists," saying Christians shouldn't be blamed for Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. Juan justified his comments, but that wasn't enough for the powers that be. The lame excuse that NPR is giving to why they fired Juan is that "they received "strong criticism" over Juan's comments. So now we seem to have a mystery on our hands. Who is the guilty party in the ultimate termination of Juan Williams? Was it the PC pinheads over at NPR who may be using the public relation shield of "strong criticism" to justify the firing of Williams, or could it be the Muslim bully group C.A.I.R "Council on American Islamic Relations that is responsible? C.A.I.R has been known for going after people in the media especially talk radio who speak out against radical Islam. Most of Fox's viewers are conservative in nature. That definitely not a surprise. So I find it very unlikely that the viewers who were watching the O'Reilly Factor when Juan made his comments were "offended". So this leads me to believe that C.A.I.R or some similar Muslim intimidation organization put the screws to the sheep over at NPR.
This was the response by C.A.I.R to Juan's comments. They wanted NPR to take action against Juan Williams, and I'm sure a slap on the wrist wasn't what C.A.I.R "demanded". The lame cover up by NPR is so pathetic, it's actually laughable. Alicia Shepard is the ombudsman for NPR, and she said "My office spent most of Wednesday fielding phone calls and emails from NPR listeners angry and upset by what Juan Williams said about Muslims. We got at least 60 emails and that was in response to something he said on another network. My job is NPR’s content – not Fox’s". The O'Reilly Factor averages around 3.8 million viewers a night, give or take. First off once again, I find it highly unlikely that these "angry NPR" listeners even watch Fox News nor the O'Reilly Factor. So that is the first BS flag I'm throwing out on the field. Second, getting 60 emails from people who claimed to have watched Bill's show which once again averages around 3.8 million doesn't even remotely constitute "public outrage". So if we were to believe this lame excuse of NPR listener outrage, we could come to the conclusion that Juan William's decade long service to NPR wasn't worth much if it only took 60 emails to get him fired. At the end of the day, I believe that the finger prints of C.A.I.R will have been found in all of this. Like I've always said, when the message can't be disputed, debated or debunked, the messenger will then be the one targeted.
