    Re. Juan Williams’s firing, you can complain to NPR here. I selected “I want to: Contact an NPR department or service”, and then, “NPR management”.

    It figures that in the article about the Tea Party the writer concentrates on some idiot who showed up to sell Confederate flags. That assclown should have been booted out or denied the right to set up his shop in the first place.

    • Tushwa says:

      Assclown for selling Confederate flags?? The War between the States was not a war about slavery as so many believe. It was about separation from the Union. Lincoln injected the slavery issue to rally his cause, because he knew that a divided country would ultimately lead to its demise. The Confederate flag is not a standard for slavery. There were many slave owners north of the Mason-Dixon.

      • franknitti says:

        I’m not going to argue about the Civil War and its root causes. We’d be here all day. Ten to one that guy selling Confederate flags was a liberal plant who went there just so the media would see him and report about it. Just like that black couple that was selling white hoods and robes at the Tea Party in Washington D.C. back in 2009. They were politely asked to leave and the same should have been done to this guy. And yes, he was/is an assclown. If he was not a liberal plant he should have had enough sense to realize the implications of selling Confederate flags.

    With the firing of Juan Williams by NPR why not take advantage. Pair him up with Tammy Bruce for a discussion of the issues. Liberal opinion (Juan) and conservative opinion (Tammy). Would be a great show!

    Regards from a loyal FOX News viewer,

    NPR has exposed its hypocrisy for all to see in firing Juan Williams!! Goebbels would surely approve of their liberal fascism. As a taxpayer, I demand they be DEFUNDED of taxpayer funds immediately!!!

    Juan Williams expressed what 80% are thinking. The other 20% are blissfully riding the Obama PeaCe train. Would a group of nuns wearing habits make you nervous on a plane? How about Orthodox Jews? Or Japanese women wearing kimonos?

    I truly feel sorry for muslims who suffer because of the actions of radical islamists. I’m sure it hurts them that people feel this way, but there is a reason for it. We all know where the blame lies.

    I was born and raised in the deep south, and the racist/Klan association always bothered me. But that was a shameful part of our past here. Atleast down here the Klan is now going the way of the dinosaurs, and we are deliberately leaving that aspect of the South deep in the fossil record, where dead things belong.

    I found a brief article in The Atlantic online about Juan’s firing, written by Jeffrey Goldberg, and it made me think a bit about Juan’s comment about Muslims on the plane:

    “Juan Williams misunderstands one crucial fact: Muslim terrorists who are attempting to commit acts of terror seldom if ever dress in ‘Muslim garb’; they dress, for obvious tactical reasons, in a manner meant to help them blend in with surroundings. So Williams is wrong, I think, to be particularly suspicious of traditionally-dressed Muslims. But is he wrong to worry about Islamist terrorism? Of course not.”

    If anything, Williams was guilty of doing what, in my view, he has often been guilty of doing, and that is having opinions that are not well thought out. They make sense in the realm of common everyday perceptions of what’s going on in the world, particularly politics, but not much more than that. Sometimes that perspective is valuable, because there are often times when popular perception is not well thought out, and he helps reveal what that perception is.

    A few things I appreciate about him, though, are he makes an effort to be fair. He’s not just out for himself. He respects his colleagues and tries to get to know them as real people (that’s my sense, anyway), not as politically correct stereotypes. He has even spoken out against the political correctness of other liberals. He also values debate, and is not offended by the fact that someone else will disagree with him. Secondly, he wants what’s best for minorities, and that includes taking advantage of opportunities to better themselves, rather than wallowing in the victim mentality.

    He’s also a good talk show host who challenges his guests, even the liberal ones. I’ve seen him sub for O’Reilly. He does a good job in that seat. This is rare in liberal hosts these days.

    I wish Juan the best of luck. I’m sure he will bounce back from this. I doubt this will change his liberal views. He is focused on helping the poor, and he thinks liberalism holds the key to helping them out, regardless of what happens to him as a result of the attitudes of his colleagues.
