Juan Williams from NPR made a comment regarding Muslims on the Bill O Reilly show " I am not a bigot, I have written books about civil rights movement, but when I get on a plane and when I see people in Muslim Garb, they are identifying themselves as first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried and I get nervous"
Bill O Reilly today on Fox said that this is not out of character for NPR to get rid of Juan as he is associated with Fox News, NPR is not a news organization it is basically a left wing outfit that wants one opinion, it is almost 100% Liberal, it is not a free enterprise, it would be ok it was, but not with tax dollars. He called for an immediate suspension of every tax dollars going into the NPR outfit. He is going to get legislation to freeze it down to get no more money, it is outrageous he said.
Newt Gingrich, who is anti- Muslim made the following statement " I think it as an act of total censorship, I think the US Congress should investigate NPR and consider cutting off their money if you honestly say how you feel about Islam and what he said was very balanced, this is an excuse for NPR to censor Juan Williams, it is an outrage, every listener to NPR should be outraged this type of bias against an American is an outrage".
Bill O Reilly wants the money to be suspended today while the investigation takes place, he said that "NPR is not going to recover from this outrage, it is over for NPR, that is a good thing." He does not mind if NPR does this as a private enterprise and compete, but don't take "my money and throw out propaganda and violation of first amendment and don't do it with my money".
I find both Bill O Reilly and Newt Gingrich to be Anti Muslims and against anyone who backs the Muslim community in the United States. They create a lot of noise doing so and frankly they don't really care about Juan William's opinion. I feel sorry for Juan Williams that he is afraid of people who don't look like him or dress like him. I support NPR for taking the right action of firing Juan Williams for his comments, Juan should know better, if he wanted to share his fears with the world he should have done so on twitter or his facebook page and not on national television while representing NRP.
