Radio Free Ameriʞa

Even Stalin didn’t move this fast. It took Uncle Joe 15 years to put an x in the box marked “Trotsky.”  Note to Juan Williams: Stay the hell out of Mexico for the foreseeable future. 

Last Monday night, National Public Radio mainstay Juan Williams, exceedingly rare amongst liberals given his honesty and introspection, was speaking on Bill O’Reilly’s enormously popular nightly program. By Wednesday, he was cleaning out his digs at the taxpayer-funded, American Vsesoyuznoye radio.

Williams, who also contributes to the liberals’ bogeyman Fox News, was unceremoniously dumped from his gig at NPR for crimes against the proletariat, specifically: “not blindly hating all non-liberals.” Juan had committed an unforgivable breach of democrat decorum — denial of dimwitted dogma. 

Evidently, 9/11 left Williams with slight hesitation about boarding an airplane with a member of the same religion as the 9/11 hijackers, the Taliban, al-Qaida, HAMAS, Hezbollah, Abu Nidal, Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi, Islamic Jihad, Abu Abbas, Yasser Arafat, Mullah Omar, the PLO, Abu Sayyaf, Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, Ansar-al-Sunnah, Jamaat Ul-Furquan, Richard Reid, Ramzi Yousef, Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, Omar Abdel Rahman, Saddam Hussein, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Ayatollah Khomeini, Wadih el-Hage and Zacarias Moussaoui (to name a few): 

“…when I get on the plane…if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think…they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried.”

Williams was not damning Islam in toto. During the same conversation with O’Reilly, Williams was careful to point out the potential bigotry in lumping a billion members of the species with irregular, bomb-heaving jihadis:

“…careful…there are good Muslims…You know, we don’t want, in America, people to have their rights violated, to be attacked on the street because they hear rhetoric from Bill O’Reilly, and they act crazy.”

Note the context. Liberal groups leapt to crucify Williams, but on their way to drive in the nails, they forgot that Williams’s statement wouldn’t vanish into the bandwidth ether like an Obama campaign promise. Tinfoil-hat brigadiers including the drones at Dailykos (whose owner, Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, openly celebrated the murder, dismemberment and burning of Americans by Muslim terrorists), MSNBC (where Rachel Maddow — Keith Olbermann’s mini-me — claimed former Texas Representative Steve Stockman had advance warning of the Oklahoma City bombing), and NPR itself (whose still-employed correspondent, Nina Totenberg proudly wished former North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms and his grandchildren would be stricken with AIDS), ALL deliberately missed Williams’ larger point.

But the purge wasn’t over. Within hours of NPR’s politically motivated termination of Williams, storm troopers across the blogosphere began an Orwellian revision of Williams’ public image. Here are a couple of servings of NPR’s regurgitated CYA talking points:

“He was hardly a lib. He was a closet conservative!” — Huffington Post buffoon.

“Juan Williams is a real liberal like professional wrestling is a real sport.” — Dailykos inmate.

“…he’s a Fox shill.” — Facebook poster (who is going to be furious that I was paying attention).

Actually, he’s an adroit analyst who has been victimized by an ersatz NKVD. I wonder how long it will take for NPR to photoshop Williams out of the All Things Considered softball team picture.

Williams may not be alone. Mara Liasson, another NPR personality who moonlights at Fox News, is now in the crosshairs. Following NPR’s sacrifice of Williams at the altar of left-wing anti-intellectualism, Media Matters for America — the left’s Ministry of Truth — fired up the newspeak Thursday morning; calling for the termination of Liasson, who to date has taken no public position on fellow air travelers.

Peering into the depths behind the allegorical assassination of Williams reveals the shadowy figure of Stalinist sugar daddy George Soros, who has donated millions to both NPR and Media Matters. I won’t go so far as to suggest Soros is behind NPR’s move against Williams and MMA’s assault on Liasson, but given the sway he holds over the liberal movement in the United States, I would be less surprised by Anita Hill apologizing to Virginia Thomas.

In the wake of Williams’ demise, the long-overdue debate has erupted over the taxpayer funding of NPR’s port-side list (nearly $4 billion in the last decade). I contend:

  1. NPR has a right to show Williams the door. This IS a free-market economy, despite the aims of Soros and his liberal minions. Just like MSNBC has the right to consign itself to the Olbermann-induced memory hole, NPR can sweep out any vestiges of intelligent discourse.
  2. As taxpayers, we have the right to tell NPR to go beg at Soros’s back door for more swag.

To paraphrase NPR CEO Vivian Schiller: If they don’t like it, they can always take it up with their psychiatrists.

    WELL,it just shows the true nature of the leftwing liberal communist camp,where truth has no meaning,and true freedom of speech,has no place,people like vivian schiller are the poster childern for why this nation is in the state of affairs it is,a totaly unhonorable bunch,with the only agenda of twisting the truth into a name calling faisco,and in the end even destroyed one of their own,because he said what was on every americans mind,when they board a plane and see folks wearing moslem gear,is this a terroist? i would ask myself the same question.but in truth he should have said is this a leftwing crazy from the NPR office,for it shows you dont have to wear muslim gear to victimize a person,all you have to be is someone from NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO,I ask this question why are the american people funding this leftwing communist propaganda machine with taxpayer money? could it be that these communist have corrupted everything so much,that they have no fear,or can it be that their arrogance knows not limit,if thats the case,its time they fund themselfs.

    • 45caliber

      I wouldn’t say that the liberals believe truth has no meaning. It means whatever they say it does – which may not always be the truth (except to them).

    • herman richardson

      Remember 1776-it is time for this country to stop putting their hand out for something, and stop what we have fought and died for from going the way it is. Start being individuals, all with a common good, stop with labels, I have folks who have died for our freedoms, why have we forgotten what this is all about??? You could not get 10 people to stand together against this invasion of insanity, because 7 out of the ten will loose their CHECKS, They are not going to put me on the train car, stop taking and start seeing, if it is not stopped soon it cannot be stopped. Take pride in what this country should mean, not in what it has become

      • Mike In MI

        herman r.-
        Just remember, about 2 out of the seven receiving a check will be wearing business suits or have pockets so deep that they drag on the ground outside of their pants cuffs. Government owns a lot of businesses just by dint of the fact that the legislators give them so much of our money they would be unable to function without the subsidies, business “food stamps”, Medicare and Medicaid payments,
        research grants/funding and various kinds of “Bawnie Phwanque bucks”. Hell Obama is even playing the stock market by giving his friends lots of our money to speculate the market with and blow up a new bubble (basically what government did to the ’08 housing bubble). That will make it look like at least something, economy-wise, has good stats…until NOV. 3. Then, “Katie bar the door.”

          Vaksar, This is not hard. James is talking to you in the first person. Look for the comma after your name. But a good post none the less.

  • s c

    It’s entirely possible that Williams is better off now than when he was in that clogged toilet known as NPR. Williams doesn’t need my sympathy – and he won’t get it.
    No doubt, Williams will survive and get on with his life. In a way, I can’t help being appreciative of the incredible hypocrisy that personifies libs and their love of paranoia. They are a consistent bunch, aren’t they?
    Anybody who gets savaged by the Huffandpuff Post, Dailykos, Nina ‘kiss me, I’m dumb’ Totenberg and the screaming meemees at NPR deserves at least some temporary sympathy. Mencken was RIGHT! (but that’s another matter).
    The idea that Williams can be hired by Fox News is very interesting. As I recall, Fox News is owned by Rupert Murdoch. In effect, Williams has moved from one liberal establishment to another. Ain’t THAT a biche?

    • Jerry D

      Absolutely! I understand he has a 3 million dollar book deal pending and it has absolutely raised his profile and marketability. Financially and career-wise he is coming out of this smelling like a rose.

      • Mike In MI

        Jerry D. -
        Well, “smelling” anyway.
        Today I had the radio on while I Was doing some business. After a news-break an annmounce told us, ” You’re listening to Fox News…fair or balan…eh, and balanced.”
        That’s worth a day’s listening.

      • Robert S

        Just like the Republicans and Democrats being controlled by the Elite so too are the media. They are told what they can and can’t say to keep the people fighting among themselves while the politicians destroy this country. It’s a dog and pony show to keep the people confused.

        • http://GOGGLE vaksal

          FROM VAKSAL,i agree its been a total mess for many many years,and the left wing liberals and the rinos sold out the american republic long ago,well i hope the tea party canidates,stay the course,if they sell out the trust this american citizen has given them this year,its over with me trusting anyone in office in government,yikes! when will these bums in office get off their ivy league butts,and do what the american voter wants.?

    • 45caliber

      There is one thing; Williams might actually realize the falicy behind liberal thought over this and thence move closer to being a conservative.

      • Robert S

        One thing people don’t understand. When you appear on these news shows whether Liberal or Conservative you are limited in what you can say. You must adhere to their political leaning and not stray from that. It is all a circus for the couch potatoes who believe everything they hear.

      • DaveH

        That’s what happened to John Stossel. He started out a Liberal, and then as time when on he learned what kind of people they really were. He kept his eyes open and realized Big Government was built for the leaders, not the people.

        • 45caliber

          As Ben Franklin once said, “If you aren’t a liberal as a young man, you don’t have a heart. If you aren’t a conservative as an old man, you don’t have a brain.”

            wow,i must be heartless then,i was raised by my grandparents,ranching folks,granddad born 1897 and grandmother born 1904,and life was very structured,their were no lberals in our family,it just shows how old i am,i had a great life,got to work hard and study and once in a while got to hang out with a small group of friends,by the way i guess that makes me a heartless person,i dont think so,charity was something that was the standing rule in those days,for they went through the great 1929 depresion,and a lot of folks parents went through it,so folks were alot different in those days,if a person got down on their luck,folks would give them a hand to get on their feet,but a handout never,how times have changed,how all you younger people missed a great time in this republics history,and by all rights the new masters of this great nation,and this is from this old guy,may god bless you and your families always and this great republic,signed, VAKSAL

        • Robert S

          John Stossel preaches what the masters tell him to. They’ll use him where he’ll do them the most good. No one on TV is for the American people.

  • Anthony

    I have several points of view – but, at the same time, I’m also in OD mode with the nonsense we keep reading about – and NO ONE is pushing an agenda of HERE’S WHAT YOU DO TO REVERSE THIS CRAP.

    1. Is anyone writing their Congressmen & women?
    2. Is anyone here, emailing to the State Congress’s about their disagreement of said issues?
    3. Are you aware there is a REAL possibility our Voting Booths are rigged? They ARE computers now – thanks to AL GORE’s hanging chads

    I agree with SC – the truest reality there is – is to know Juan Williams hasn’t really moved from ne opposing Network …to the other. THEY ARE one and the same – both sides fomenting an incerdibly FALSE Left/Right Paradigm – which is nothing more than decoy conversation, for the OSTRICH people in this Country.

    You may have noticed I don’t comment nearly as much as I used to…

    80% here, simply do not listen – they have hands on ears singing LALALALALALALALA … all day long. Like little st graders the Proletariet “needs you to be” … and you willingly oblige.

    I rarely read from anyone – what it is they have just done to fight back against this destruction of our Country’s real and true freedoms.

    I’ve already alerted all of you about where to go – to find the info you need. Has anyone cared to hear it … let alone ready it?

    Juan Williams should’ve known his wasn’t a protected position. He had no spyder hole – no Boss to hide behind, while using that person’s name & position for social or professional leverage – like hundreds of so-called Americans do day-after-day.

    FACT IS – almost NO ONE really cares about what just happened to JUAN WILLIAMS – many will go: WHO ???? And, THAT’s a very sad truth. The majority of us have been living in a FAscist Society for so long, they’ve lost the ability to know the difference.

    We used to be able to:
    1. Carry our firearms in public, at all times
    2. Leave our horses in the corral (stable) and know that no one would walk away with them during the night.
    3. That our neighbors would drop whatever, to come help us build our log cabins and not have it cost us anything more, than reciprocation
    4. Our kids could walk to school house and not be mugged

    PEOPLE – all along, it has been the STATE (federal level) that has altered America…. to become AMERIKA.

    Pretending – this just has to be someone else’s job…to fix…. is a sign of cowardice… and you will know who the cowards are, every time you look in the mirror.

    Right Now – we are dealing with our own Country preparing for WAR – without our permission. Read HR 5741.

    NOW – it will become YOUR JOB to donate to the STATE a significant portion of your BANK ACCOUNTs back to Barry Soetoro and the Bank of England… thanks to HR 4646.

    As for Juan Williams? Who certainly must have had an inside track on the whole process… a long long time ago… I almost feel for him. He shoulda grew real balls back when he first got into the Political News Biz … instead, he tried to line his pockets and fall for the Smith versus the Jones – we got more than you do – bull$hit.

    I say this – if JUAN WILLIAMS wants to get even, for having been sliced out of the herd – he should become Ron Paul’s Press Emissary and totally follow the marching orders of that Camp. Especially every time a TV camera turns his way.

    I doubt he will do anything close….

    SO – what will YOU…do? Do you have children?

    • http://beliefnet.com/debrincon Debra Rincon Lopez

      I totally agree, it’s overkill mode now? Things that people are posting and saying on the media are ridicolously getting worse by the day. I hope that things change for the better, it’s not likely though???

    • slickporsche

      Anthony what exactly would you like to see happen and when? I agree the time is now to do something. Also how much are you willing to give to the cause to save our republic?? Instead of giving us all a good “chewing out”, step up to the plate and lead if you can.Do you have the BALLS to do that?

    • Harold Olsen

      Here in King County, Washington where I live, we don’t have to worry about our voting booths being rigged. We don’t use them. Everyone is required to vote by mail. Now, they just decide that the signature on the envelope that we mail our ballot in is not valid and they toss it out. That was one of Ron Simms’ ideas before he joined the Obama regime. They also, and this mostly happens with peoples’ ballots that voted conservative, claimed that ballots were not received on time. Our county, and state, is controlled by Democrats. As for contacting my member of Congress, well, Baghdad Jim McDermott only wants to hear from people who agree with him and Obama’s Nazi agenda. The rest of us can go to hell.

      • Kate8

        Harold, My daughter and I have been voting by mail for awhile now. But a couple of elections ago I had an uneasy feeling about it, so we waited until election day and hand-carried our ballots to the polls. That way we know they were received.

        Doesn’t solve the issue of rigged voting machines but, at least, we know they got them.

        • 45caliber

          Absentee ballots are NOT counted unless the race is really close in one of the positions up for grabs.

          As one vote counter stated, it takes a lot of time to count the absentee votes. When there is a split that is wide enough so the absentee ballots don’t count, why bother to count them?

          So if you want your vote counted, you have to go to the polls. And even then see who you voted for after you vote. At least one person a day or two ago stated that he found he have “voted” for the wrong person. If he had simply walked away, as most of us do, his vote would have gone the wrong way.

          • libertytrain

            I don’t think that’s true everywhere. In my town, when I voted last week, first time I noticed that it was considered an absentee ballot, and I asked I said will this be counted – what’s the deal. She told me that it is most definitely counted, counted before the other votes cast on Nov. 2nd. Unless I die before the 2nd. In my quaint little town, I have to believe that to be true and that they would take note if I bit the dust before the 2nd.

          • Kate8

            Another problem with early voting is that, often, new information about the candidates and issues comes out in the last few days before the election date. By then, many have cast their ballots and it’s then too late to change their minds.

            I wonder if this was part of the idea about early voting.

          • witsend

            In my hometown, the absentee ballots are definitely counted. I have worked at the polls and know this to be true. At the end of the day, all absentee ballots are scanned into our computer ballot counter. The only time an absentee ballot is not counted is if there is an error and then only that portion is not counted. For example, if you can vote for only one, but vote for two, that specific vote is rejected. If voting in person, the computer counter would spit the ballot back at you and you would get a chance to redo it.

          • Christin

            Kate8,
            I think in THIS Election the people know for whom they will vote and their are no real surprises (except for the demonization of Conservatives on the part of the Demos that came out last week) … either you are for the Progressive or the Conservative.

            However, I don’t think that was true for 2008. In 2008 many people voted early, but may not have gotten to LEARN about the real obama and his radical, Marxist, bi-sexual (adulterous affairs), Anti-American, Pro-Muslim ways… and may not have placed a vote for him if they knew then, what they know now.

            So I agree, that early voting could possibly be to hurry one up before all the facts are in.

            A couple of the older Sunday school Teachers in our country church said they will be casting their ballot in early voting, because you never know if you will live until Nov. 2!

      • JeffH

        Harold, voters in Boulder City, Nevada said they were trying to vote for Republican Sharron Angle, but that Reid’s name was checked when they got to the electronic voting machines. Several people reported the same problem. “One person that’s a fluke. Two, that’s strange. But several within a five-minute period of time — that’s fraud.”
        A Clark County, Nevada voting official said highly sensitive touch-screens may be to blame and that fraud is not the issue.

        Yeah, right and I’m king of the world!

        And by the way, Harold…no matter who you vote for, you’re still voting for the status-quo….

      Anthony. Lets see. I stand on this soap box and speak. I vote for people that seem to be willing to support the constitution at every level of government I can vote for. I stand ready to exercise Jury Nullification to eliminate unconstitutional laws. What else would you have us do?

      Oh and daily I go to http://www.downsizeDC.org and send a letter on one or more of their campaigns. You can too.

    • Mike In MI

      Anthony – RE: rigged compute voting machines:

      It’s being reported on Fox talk shows that early voters in Nevada go into the booth with their ballots, set it up to vote and find that the booth has already voted for HARRY REID before they touch a thing to vote.
      Another story tells of a person who took care to vote straight Republican and was a little dismayed to see the booth voted straight Democratic for him.
      So, everybody make sure the booth you vote in forwards a true and accurate version of your wishes. It seems the Democrats don’t have to get dead people to vote for them anymore. They just have set it up so everybody who goes into a booth votes for them – irregardless of who the voter is for.

        I read in Newsmax, I think it was, that the Reps have lawyers already set to watch polls and counting in NV, because it is close and, MN because of what happened with AL STankin and a couple other places.

        The States are still finding Voter Fraud from 2008!!!
        CA with illegals, Houston TX with illegals, and another one (It is too late to remember) and now we find that Illinois hand delivered ballots to inmates, but failed to get the military vote out on time as did NY… CRIMINAL.

        Don’t know how 2010 will go down.
        We’ll ALL have to pray, keep our eyes open, and focused while in the voting booth.
        Everyone, please encourage your friends and family to vote if they are of like mind (as in voting for conservatives).
        We sometimes chat with neighbors and give rides to our voting precinct if they can’t get there.

  • Angel Wannabe

    I don’t believe in a Free Speech attack, no matter who it is__and I don’t agree on most isses with Juan, but with that said___It looks as if, the upper echelon Progressives, are beginning to eat they’re own Liberal spawn. It’s about time, some of the Liberal shills take a bit of the politically correct medicine, they’ve been shoving down our conversative gullets for years. The Progressives own all the major news networks. I’m impressed that they view Fox contributers that much of a threat!
    Problem is people aren’t buying the Liberal crap anymore! The NPR have made an example of Juan and created a over night sensation with negative publicity.

      Angel Wannabe,
      Free speech is our Right under the Constitution and Free Speech is good as long as you don’t libel or lie about someone (IX. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor)… The Demos and Progressives, now one and the same, constantly Demonize and brutally attack their Conservative or Republican opponents… cheat to win policy, the only way they can.

      And you are right, Angel, “the Upper Echelon Progressives are beginning to eat their own Liberal spawn” because they USE whoever they can to further their OWN agenda. They are loyal to no one, but their PURPOSE to make an evil kingdom here on Earth which will eliminate Freedom and kill billions.

      Angel:

      They consider FOX a problem because they know WE know that Fox is the only one they don’t fully control. And many watch it for that reason.

      • Angel Wannabe

        45, your right, but you know and I know, Fox is only allowed to say so much too. All the rest of the news, most of us have found out on our own by digging for it.

        • Angel Wannabe

          45, for years I only watched local news, and once in a while the world news, until two years ago. Now I won’t watch anything BUT Fox, because I want both sides of the story!

          • 45caliber

            There used to be a news magazine called “Insight”. It was very good, giving both sides of a story. But “Times” bought it out and then closed it. And “Times” is a liberal rag. I understand that there is a new magazine just out that is also good but I don’t remember the name. “News One”, I think but won’t swear to it. Newspapers only give the local news truthfully. TV or radio news is almost always just a headline.

            I got interested in BOTH sides of a story when I was a teen. I grew up in Arkansas and was a teen when they first started intergration at Central High School in Little Rock. They would tell one thing on TV but I’d hear something else from the people who had children there. For instance, one day they announced on TV that the troops had been pulled out because everyone had accepted the intergration. But the same day a friend went to pick up his daughter to take to the dentist – and he had to go through 9 checkpoints.

            My hobby is trying to find out in history what REALLY happened. You would be surprised at what the history books have changed! But one friend in high school pointed out that something in the history book was wrong. The teacher told her, “This is the way the government wants you to learn this and this is what I’m going to teach. And it WILL be on the test this way!” Scary.

          • Kate8

            45, That’s disgusting. How is it that liberal folks are okay with the way we are being manipulated by changing our history and traditions, as Michelle O said we had to do.

            You would think all people would want the truth. I guess agenda trumps everything.

          • Robert S

            None of those Cable News shows give you the real truth. Only what they are allowed to tell you. Next time when Ann Coulter is on you’ll notice she is always looking to the side to see if she is allowed to say what she wants. Someone is coaching her.

    Exactly what part of our Constitution authorizes our DC employees to confiscate my money to fund radio and TV networks which I abhor?

    • Joyce from Loris

      None. In fact, 90% of all taxes collected by the government is non constitutional. It is as Anthony said, we have idly sat by and, over the years, allowed the government to “have their way with us”, simply by the lack of action on the part of the American citizens. It had to take the likes of Obama and his administration to wake us up to reality. This has been going on for years, and now we are all shocked at what we have found. So, are we going to go back to sleep? Or are we going to work like dogs to end the crap that has been going on for almost 50 years now?

        Since we don’t, as a group, raise Cain, it is “implied consent”. I’ve run into that before with a school system. What they were doing to the kids was illegal but if the parents didn’t complain, they got away with it. My wife and I were considered trouble-makers because we objected every year.

        • Angel Wannabe

          Us too 45, Our Son was placed in the gifted class. They made some easy money off of him and other kids in the class, so Two years later, they the school, tried to tell us to put our daughter in a class for slower kids. The more kids they could recruit for those classes, the more money they make. I flat out said NO and tutored her myself, she wasn’t slow, she was fine. Parents like the idea of one of their kids being “Gifted”. The school districts prey on ya, ya gotta stay alert.

          • 45caliber

            They had the kids in classes A through H in each grade at my children’s school. A class was supposed to be for the gifted. They would do ALL homework problems in the book. B class would do every other problem. H class was expected to do two chapters the whole year with NO homework. They spent most of class time playing with toys and graduated from high school with a 2nd grade education.

            My son wanted in H class but the school wanted him in A class. I had my wife put him in B class every year. If you argued, you won since it was all illegal. But we weren’t liked by the school itself since they knew what was best. My other two were the same. I was glad to move away.

    • Vigilant

      “Exactly what part of our Constitution authorizes our DC employees to confiscate my money to fund radio and TV networks which I abhor?”

      It’s in the same part of the constitution that allows labor and teacher’s unions to collect dues from conservative members and then use that money to support liberal candidates.

      Another part authorizes the use of taxpayer money to support an artist’s rendition of the cross inverted in a beaker of urine.

      One section even permits the expenditure of funds to pay for illegal aliens’ education and hospital care.

      And still another part allows the government (when it’s a Democrat majority) to subsidize fraudulent activities in getting out the vote (ACORN).

      ….Oh, you meant the UNITED STATES Constitution? No, I don’t think there’s anything in there about the above.

      • Harold Olsen

        Isn’t it the same part that has the “separation of church and state” in it? Oh, wait a minute, that was the constitution of the Soviet Union. But then the constitution of the Soviet Union IS the constitution that the left and especially the ACLU supports.

      Exactly, Poorgrandchildren. Isn’t it interesting that the only public systems getting government funding are left-wing.

      Name for me ONE right-wing group that gets any government money. Because I can name several on the left: ACLU, ACORN (and the many NEW names it now goes under), SEIU, NPR, government school system…I could go on, but it would take up the page.

      How has this happened? Because even under republican control, this has still been the case.

      • Karolyn

        Kate – Any nonprofit organization is eligible for federal funding. All they have to do is apply and meet the criteria. I don’t feel that NPR is as far left as everybody is saying. I listen to people from all fields and with many differing viewpoints and find it very informative. Other than those from the entertainment field, most guests are well-educated. I get the feeling here that many think being well-educated is tantamount to being a traitor. I do believe there are well-educated conservatives too. NPR also has a large funding base of members.

        • Vigilant

          Karolyn, we all know you are well-intentioned and you express yourself well. However, please consider the following.

          It is well known that NPR has been the proponent of liberal slant for decades, and it was not until the Juan Williams debacle that they felt any need to challenge that assertion. Have you looked at the list of “journalists” who are the contributors to NPR?

        • Vigilant

          A Fox News report of 22 October said, “Juan Williams may be gone from National Public Radio’s line-up of commentators, but billionaire liberal icon George Soros has donated $1.8 million to hire 100 new reporters for 50 of its member stations.”

          Do you deny that George Soros is as far left as they come? And do you really believe it is his public-spiritedness that motivated this donation of funds to NPR?

          • Vigilant

            …and concerning “education,” please read Thomas Sowell’s “Intellectuals and Society” if you want an eye-opening account of the leftist bias and close-mindedness of today’s “intelligentsia.”

        • 45caliber

          And I don’t want ANY of my taxpayer money going to ANY non-profit group! If I do want some money to go to them, I’ll pay them directly. Many of these non-profit groups are actually shills for some other political entity.

          For instance, CARE. It was set up to provide food to starving people … supposedly. It gets 99%+ of its money from the government. What it actually does is provide under-the-table funds to various governments by providing them with free food for their soldiers.

        • JeffH

          Karolyn, ” I get the feeling here that many think being well-educated is tantamount to being a traitor.”
          Not so at all.
          If you’ve been here for awhile you would have seen that the liberal harpies on this board have been very consistant at calling those that don’t buy their crap as ignorant and uneducated. You would have just as often see them bragging about their pedigrees in higher education. The difference is that most non-liberals don’t brag nor give a rats ass about someones educational pedigree. Many liberals have judged a person’s disagrements based strictly on their education and nothing more.
          You are correct in saying that “conservatives are just as well educated.

          • libertytrain

            Jeff – very nicely said. Thank you.

        • Kate8

          Karolyn, I’m sure there is truth in what you say. The thing is, the only ‘nonprofit’ groups that meet the criteria are left-wing.

          If any group has a whif of being conservative or, heaven forbid, Christian, they are excluded. Period. Separation of church and state, you know.

          Unless the group is Muslim. They get funding, somehow. And, of course, the religions of secular humanism, global warming, socialism, communism, or just plain HATE CONSERVATIVISM. All acceptable, and even though most of us find them DEPLORABLE, they get OUR money.

          • Karolyn

            Kate – Guess I’ll have to do some research. I’m sure there have to be more at least middle-of-the-road groups that get funding, as well as conservative. I certainly agree with the Fed not funding strictly Christian or religious groups. We have assisted countries dominated by a certain faith.

          • Kate8

            Karolyn, Secular humanism is just as much a religious group. It is the Progressive religion. Atheism is a religion. Why are these groups okay?

            You don’t want to fund Christians, I don’t want to fund humanists.

            NONE of them should get funding from government. They are all ideological groups.

          • Karolyn

            That is a tough one Kate. It is so hard to define religion. I tend to think of the “usual” religions as being organized. I myself do not consider what I believe to be “religion.” To me, it is spirituality and really has no label. I believe that tax dollars should be shared by everybody equally.

          • 45caliber

            Karolyn:

            I don’t believe tax dollars should be shared at all. Sharing defines taking from one to give to another. The money should be used for the good of ALL for things like national defense, highways and bridges, etc. That limits the spending all by itself. Most of the present spending (by both parties) is for a small group of people somewhere. Some of it is even needed. But most is not. The “Bridge to Nowhere” was about $125 million to connect a road to a tribe on a small island. It worked out to about $2.5 million each for the bridge. And they didn’t even want it!

            If the money isn’t used for the good of all, it shouldn’t be spent by the government. Historically – and even today in many instances – charity was done by the individuals. For instance, if someone needs money or help, I will give it freely. If they don’t need it but just want something for nothing, they are on their own. It is my choice. Government giving to charity means they spend my money for me in places I’m not even interested. For instance, one “charity” they give to is CARE. It was supposed to provide food to starving people in places like the Sahara Desert. Instead, the food is given to various countries the government wants to support without letting us – the citizens – know where it went. They use it to feed their troops so they can have more money for something else. I don’t want my money given away like that.

          • 45caliber

            Karolin:

            Actually, government money does go to some Christian groups. But again, I don’t think it should even when they spend it on the homeless, ect. I certainly don’t think it should go to any Muslim group since they generally won’t spend it on anyone except a Muslim. And even then you can’t really tell if it goes to a terrorist group or not. For instance, there are many “charities that send money to help the widows and orphans in the Mid East. It certainly does – they use it to support the widows and orphans of the terrorists who die attacking someone. That is one of their recruitment tools for suicide bombers!

          • Karolyn

            45 – See – That’s where we will always differ. Unfortunately, we cannot depend on people to take care of each other. We are all brothers and sisters, as far as I’m concerned; and if the only way to take care of everybody is through the government, then so be it. I have see some people-helping-people online groups doing wonderful things, but that’s just a drop in the bucket. I am not so attached to money. I have always had a roof over my head and food in my mouth. When able, I have given to several charities, but only those that show most of their money goes to direct service. I have seen how well some other countries do under their socialist governments but do not think that would ever happen here because of our diverse population. Those are countries where most of the people have been there since the stone age, and they are of the same mind. However, I don’t think theere’s anything wrong with a little socialism. It is really an altruistic system. In Sweden it’s a “one for all and all for one attitude”, and that will NEVER happen here. There will ALWAYS be division.

          • Kate8

            Karolyn, It is not the job of government to FORCE us to care for one another.

            A God-loving people always will, as God commands it of us. A godless people, less so.

            It’s just another lame justification for goverment control of our lives and our money.

  • http://gunner689 gunner689

    Like our public education system, NPR is nothing more than a left wing propaganda machine. All public money should be withdrawn from NPR and let it stand or fall on it’s own, like other radio stations do. Air America tried this and failed miserably. The reason was hardly anyone listens to it so no one advertises on them.

    • Vigilant

        • DaveH

          The problem is that we have evolved into a nation where very few people respect the Liberty of their fellow man. I estimate somewhere between 10% to 30% of our citizenry do. The rest think that Liberty means living your life their way. So we get Big Government and Big Turmoil. And we will continue to get that until people wake up and learn to respect the Freedom of others.

          • Christin

            Dave H,
            I think it all boils down to Education from our Parents and our Schools… and when we become adults, we must continue to educate ourselves.
            If Parents were doing their duty as their childrens first educators and Schools teaching about Freedoms, Rights and Liberties, then people wouldn’t be so confused… and possibly we wouldn’t be in this mess.

            Also illegals don’t get the proper perspective on our Free, but Responsible America, because they slide in the back door… and then the parents can’t be the first teachers of their children for even they do not know. And the schools don’t teach the old true history and capitalism – exceptionalism of America… so we lose them.

          • DaveH

            Christin,
            I tried to wake my kid up to reality 20 years ago. He said “How could you know more than my teacher?”. I replied “Have you heard them whining about their salaries? How come they don’t get a job like mine if they’re so smart, so they don’t have to be whining?”. Of course, that is a fallacious argument, but a 16-year old kid doesn’t know it, lol. Now the teachers make more than most other folks, so you can’t even use that kind of chicanery to get your kids to listen to what you have to say, if their teacher says differently. It’s difficult to break that spell once they are under it.

          • Christin

            Dave H.,
            That is why you have to start when they are very young… like toddlers. Teaching them and being a good role model yourself so they look up to you, because you have character and integrity… if nothing else you are honorable and loving.

            I don’t think listening to a Teacher because of his/her salary has any bearing on the kids as you say. Your children should listen to and respect their parents because you are you. Just because your children’s Teacher can teach English or Mathematics that you may have forgotten or never learned doesn’t make you stupid or unworthy of respect from your kids.

            God has given us all gifts and we are all talented in different areas. Some know automobile machanics, others Foreign Language, many have a kind and generous heart…

            My boys go to private elementary school so that they will not be indoctrinated. I wanted them to go to a school where God is welcome. They treat their Teachers better than me, which I think is common. I am, however, a Teacher, but have not worked for some time . I have earned from $16,700 to $33,400 a year over my many years of experience in the south and I do not think that is very much. I doubt I could support myself and my two growing boys on that amount.

            Because of my background in Teaching I have been able to help my kids out a great deal with their school work and projects, but sometimes they bring home Enrichment sheets or “Estimating Math” (which I think is bogus) that I can not help them with… oh, well, they will just have to do their best. But many times their Teachers do not know as much as I and I am frustrated because I know a better way to do things.

            I have spend much of their young lives teaching them everything I know including “trying” to demonstrating character and integrity.

            So they do listen to me (usually). They do know what is going on in our country (I’m sorry to say). And hopefully if I have done my job as a parent then one day when they are 18 or 21 or so they can stand on their own two feet and make good decisions.

        • 45caliber

          When I was in school a LOOOOOONG time ago, they taught Civics as a graduation requirement. It taught you what your rights were and what your duties as a citizen were. The Constitution itself took most of a semester. Now it takes less than a week for students to study it and rights are barely mentioned. Basically the students today are taught that the government is always right and you should do whatever the government tells you to do.

          I want to see Civics again taught in schools today. But, of course, the Dems consider that course traitorous to their beliefs.

    • 45caliber

      Exactly. Did you know that the government gives billions to various charities each year? Some are 99% supported by the government. It also spends billions a year to buy up American land. Supposedly it is to save it “for our children” but I can’t see them allowing our children to ever use it. One local birdclub wanted them to buy 50,000 acres here for a bird sanctuary “for our children”. Interestingly enough, they wanted it kept sealed so the only people allowed into the land was their club.

      Foreign aid funding, if stopped, could almost balance our budget. We give at least $10 mil to every country in the world except two. The three countries who get the most money are India, Russia, and China, in that order. And they get it every year. Palestine gets about 50% more than Israel does – but they spend it on palaces for their leaders and dynamite.

        45, You are right. Government has been taking the land, buy purchase and by claim. This is also what the mortgage meltdown and government takeover was about. Government now owns a large share of mortgages, and they are rapidly being forclosed on. Guess who takes it over?

        TPTB intend to condense us all into crowded railway cities, and make most of the land no-go zones for the public. You’ve seen where new houses have been simply bulldozed.

          Kate8,
          Sounds like they are testing the waters with the No-Go Land Zones in AZ! Perhaps they didn’t really intend for us to find that out so quickly. But I know they have land grabbed all over this nation especially in the west.

          • Kate8

            Yep. Including the area where I live.

          • Kate8

            Christin, Remember when Clinton signed the several million acre government land grap right before leaving office? And Obama didn’t even wait that long. He’s already signed a land grab covering most of the land from Colorado to the Pacific.

        • 45caliber

          Exactly. They already own about 60% or more of the Western states. So many of their purchases are in the Eastern states now where far less government land exists.

          Some environmentalists insist that all humans should be put into high rise apartment buildings where they live, work, and die. A wall should be put up about those apartments to prevent anyone from going out to contaminate the rest of the world. And the only people who should be allowed out are, of course, the environmentalists who would carefully watch over the world while they enjoyed it.

      That is such BS. I listen to NPR as often as possible and have always found them to be fair and balanced. They have to be to get the funding they do. They do not only feature liberals. They ALWAYS feature both sides of issues.

      • 45caliber

        They are “fair and balanced” to a liberal. After all, you believe the same stuff. But to us conservatives, they are so far to the left that they are about to fall off the bell curve.

          45, That was my thought. To consider NPR fair and balanced, one has to be really far left.

    National Progressive Radio… alive and well.

    If this doesn’t expose which party espouses censorship (isn’t THAT the desired outcome of political correctness?? aka if you don’t like Obamacare, you’re racist… guess I can’t voice my displeasure with it any more), INtolerance, and hate (Nina, Rachael etal.) nothing will. We’ve got to take back the language and restore the REAL meaning of the words (“marriage” comes to mind) as defined in the dictionary.

    • Harold Olsen

      Because of political correctness I have a tendency to shock people when they call me a racist for criticizing Obama. I take it as a compliment not an insult and I thank them. The definition of racist and racism these days has deteriorated to be whatever blacks and the left decide it is. Did you know it is racist to eat a hot dog. Yep, I was once called a racist by a black guy I had never seen before and when I asked him why he called me that he answered, “You’re eating a hot dog, ain’t you?” Whatever?

    We have no idea how much entrenched the Progressives and Marxists are in our Universities, Federal Government and mass media. Kruschev was correct. If we are not vigilant and careful enough, that Communism (you know that system that failed in Russia) will bury us and God help us then. There will be no United States of America to come to our rescue. We have seen the signs for many decades. The incrementalism of Communism has made slow but steady progress in our country. It is now bold enough to show it’s ugly head and they are proud of this. We have been warned many times but we just cant imagine our freedoms and liberty are on the wane. Shame on us if we dont make major changes not just in this upcoming election but all future elections as well. Otherwise we are TOAST.

    • 45caliber

      When I was in college it was legal and expected that the school fire anyone who was Communist. Now it is part of their resumes!

        45 – You are full of it! Have you been to school lately?

        • 45caliber

          Yes. I like to sit in on some classes to learn. And what I learn is that many of the teachers are progressive/liberal/communists.

          • john

            I agree the education system has been hijacked by leftist liberal atheist gay loving anti-American unrealists.It’s no accident..he who controls minds controls the future.Why do you think Obama called upon all the young and minorities to get out and vote..he knows damn well how stupid and ignorant this group are..one votes based on race and the other votes based on what they see and hear on campus and for whoever looks young and cool.The school system is the first front wave assault on the family..where they try very hard to undermine parents values and ethics..I said it once ,I’ll say it again..the schools and universities are where the real battles need to take place..we do need a new witch hunt on commies,leftists and extremists…especially the homosexual agenda and their outright assault on family and children.

          • Karolyn

            Granted, I’m only going to a two-year school in a rural areas; but our instructors do have MAs and Ph.Ds and I haven’t heard one with his own agenda. As a matter of fact, I can’t figure out what my Sociology professor stands behind. He doesn’t bring it into the classroom. He makes fun of everybody.

          • 45caliber

            Karolyn:

            Most small colleges generally have good teachers who work without a political agenda. They try to teach the subject. But bigger colleges and universities aren’t the same at all. I know one teacher when I was in college who didn’t like to grade papers so he refused to give tests. He didn’t like the grading system either. So he would give one class all “A”s and another all “F”s as a protest. It REALLY screwed up some student’s who were trying hard to get good grades. The Communist teacher I had (who was later fired) taught Philosophy. I enjoyed the class. But he and a Communist student would arrange questions that he could ask the class to give the student a chance to jump up and start telling how wonderful Communism was. Since I am willing to take either side of an argument just to argue, I had a blast. But it was unfair of the teacher to bring politics into the class. Many teachers today are the same. One teacher in NY tells his law students that if they can come up with a way to put off or stop the execution of any criminal, no matter how bad, they will get an “A”. Do they learn in class? Maybe, maybe not. This is all wrong.

        • Kate8

          Karolyn, Where I live we have card-carrying communists in our legislature, and they have been demanding that communism be taught in our schools.

          They already are promoting that, and much worse, to our children.

          • Karolyn

            Kate – I believe every “side” should be taught; and then the kids can decide for themselves what is best.

          • Angel Wannabe

            And Karolyn, I’ll be damned if I’d have my Granddaughter learning about Homosexuality at six years old! I’ve heard they’ve tryed pushing that at some schools out west. I’d be hitting the freakin ceiling!!__Now it’s either a plot by the left, to p*ss us off enough to get violent, or they meant it.__ And BTW, why should our education system teach other forms of Government, hell they don’t even teach the truth about our own Country???_-I’m not being smart, but girl, you have got to start researching some of this stuff and stop believing in every venue you read or hear, cuz obviously you aren’t getting it all!

          • Kate8

            Karolyn – I want the right to decide what my children are taught. Communists believe they own the children and parents have no rights to what their children are taught.

            Children are easily indoctrinated. Schools do NOT teach all sides. They teach one side. Or, they show communism in a positive light and Americanism as a negative. Communism is against everything America was founded to be, and is dangerous. Communism is behind the whole Progressive movement, and look what is happening.

            No, children should NOT be left to make up their own minds. They need to be protected and guided in ways of virtue and right thinking. Schools do not encourage reasoning, they teach kids to think one way.

            Our children are our most precious assets, or our worst nightmare future. It’s just too important to be left to those with an evil agenda.

          • Karolyn

            IF children are guided properly at home, they should be able to decide for themselves given all the information they can get. Why should they be shielded from what is? They cannot be raised in a bubble unless you live in a closed community like the poligamists or like the Amish.

          • 45caliber

            Karolyn:

            IF the kids could decide, that would be good. But the teachers don’t give the kids a chance to learn both sides.

            For instance, locally, a kindergarten teacher taught her students that anyone working at a chemical plant was evil. Since most of their parents did work at chemical plants (14 in this immediate area) the parents weren’t too happy when their kids accused them of this. Her argument, when confronted, was that chemical plants pollute so anyone who works there contributes to the pollution and should be put into jail. On the other hand you officially pollute by breathing – yet plants would die if you didn’t. That isn’t something to teach young kids who don’t know both sides of the problem. So such things should NOT be taught! Instead, they should teach the basics (reading, writing, math, science, history, etc.) and the kids can learn as they advance.

          • 45caliber

            Karolyn:

            You said “kids should be properly guided at home”.

            You are right. BUT (big But) parents are not considered the final answer by ANY child regardless of how they are guided. Teachers are since teachers are supposed to know everything.

            Since you are still going to college, I’m going to assume that you have no children yet of your own. Trust me, they can open your eyes! Children rebel against parents in particular to find out their boundaries and what they can do. Some rebellion is fine since it expands what they can do. But … would you like it if your six year old came home and told you that it was fine for him/her to have sex wiht an adult? That is exactly what one group in the US wants them to learn! And they are more apt to believe the teacher than they are you when you tell them “NO!” They will want to push those boundaries to see why they shouldn’t. Many families today teach their children that it is okay to steal from you. (Yes, they do!) Other families all sell drugs. I don’t want my kids involved, but what if some teacher was in favor of drugs? Then she would teach your kids that these are okay. (This also happens, although not too frequently right now.)

            Morals were set up to guide civilization. They tend to change – sometimes for the best and sometimes not. Indian tribes had to be taught that theft and murder of other tribes wasn’t right. Today, we are going the other way.

          • Karolyn

            45 – Where have you been? I’ve said many times here that I’m 63 years old! However, I never did have kids. However, I have observed many grow up and seen how they were raised and taught.

    • Angel Wannabe

      USMC1961, Up until two years ago, I had no idea what was going on. I couldn’t figure out why, when the republicans DID seem to have the power to change things, nothing really changed. I’ve researched plenty in the last two years, and boy have we ever been duped!!__

    • DaveH

      That’s funny, Vigilant – “closet conservative”. Most of the time I have seen him on Fox, I have had to change the channel, because I can’t take listening to his liberal mush. But he does seem to be mellowing out. Maybe this firing will wake him up to reality.

      • libertytrain

        He certainly appeared stunned by being turned on by his “side” – and I noticed when watching him talk with O’Reilly – though I seldom watch, but had to this one, he told him something like “You know Bill, I just realized you are a good man.” – I thought that was interesting and also Bill replied something like “I’ve got your back Juan.”

        • JeffH

          libertytrain, I saw it too. I think I understand where O’Reilly is coming from on his show and find it very interesting. Probably my favorite FOX host. He tends to make one think why he presents and says things the way he does. Very seldom jumps on the bandwagon and becomes “sensational”. He’s polite but will defend his “turf” with a strong arguement.

          DaveH, I agree, Juan Williams was a strong minded liberal and an Obama supporter from day one and tough to take.

          • JeffH

            FYI, I do realize there are quite a few of you that don’t agree with me about O’Reilly…just my opinion.

          • DaveH

            JeffH,
            My favorite, by far, is John Stossel. Then comes Judge Napolitano, and then Glenn Beck. Bill is a good man, but he is an enabler of the Big Government machinery.

          • JeffH

            I really enjoy Stossel and Napolitano and always look into Beck’s show when I get a chance to.

          • JeffH

            DaveH, I want to add that it was you that made me aware of Stossel and the Libertarian Party and I thank you for your contributions like that.

    Great article, Ben. The knee jerk reaction of NPR is a good indication of how unthinking liberals really are. I suspect NPR was just waiting for just that kind of “out of context” comment to can Williams. He is one of the very few reasonable liberals I’ve ever seen. Keep up the great articles.

      Officially, I’m still Dem although I haven’t voted that way since I was twenty or so. For a long time, here in the South, there were no Repubs running for any office except governor and national offices. If you wanted to vote for a local office you had to be Dem to vote in the primary for them. Now its almost the other way around here since the Dems changed so much.

  • Ben

    H.O. Very true indeed. I loved J.F.K. when there were Democrats.

    • Harold Olsen

      JFK was a liberal Democrat. I was alive when he was president. If you listen to, or read, any of his speeches, by today’s standards, he was a conservative. That is why it really irritated me when Clinton called himself a Kennedy Democrat. He meant JFK but if he was a Kennedy Democrat it was Ted Kennedy.

    Why is Juan Williams feigning outrage over getting canned from a government-owned radio station that nobody listens to, when he knows that it’s the best thing that could have happened to him? He got over like a fat rat. FOX handed him a plum gig and dumped a pile of money on him. And his book is bound to be a bestseller, now that everybody knows that he wrote a book. Meanwhile, that useless albatross of a public radio station is about to get shut down, putting a lot of moonbats out of work. Williams should be gloating, not complaining.

If you get most of your news from NPR, I contend, you know nothing. Your lame comments on this blog verify it. Why do you even bother? After the first 3 I just started skipping them like I do robert and flashman. You contribute nothing.

        The reason thinking people listen to Rush Limbaugh is because he backs his information with facts. Air America just shouted about their ‘feelings’. Who cares to listen to that crap.

        I will never donate to NPR again, and will do everything possible to defund it at every level. If it really had to compete on the airwaves with commercial radio it would rapidly become a distant memory. I hope you will too.

          I would say that you, like anybody else, prefer to hear what you want to hear also. You have probably not see my many posts on this site in which I reiterate my penchant for listening to both sides. I believe that to me constitutes fair and balanced. Then I make my decision as to which way to go. I can say that I have been somewhat influenced by my conversations here. I really do not consider myself a true leftist anymore. I believe myself to be a plain old humanist who believes what best rings true with me. After all I have to live with me. Back in the 60s and 70s it was easy to divide left from right. It is no longer. To my mind there is no black and white, only shades of gray. No one REALLY knows who is “right”!

          • 45caliber

            You have been taught that at school and that is WRONG! There are many things that are black and white. For instance, you are pregnant or you are not. No shades of gray. What Hitler did was evil – no shades of gray although many professors in college try to teach that. Hitler may have thought he was right but then, he was crazy too.

            With only shades of gray there is NO PLACE TO STOP AN EVIL ACT! No place to know you are doing the right thing! That is why you are being taught that! If there is no such thing as right or wrong, then how do you know that having sex with anyone (everyone) is wrong? Yet that is the quickest way to really mess up a young person!

            Karolyn, I, too, once thought much as you do. No black and white, no real right or wrong…It’s called relativism, and it is borne of such things as communism, for the purpose of destroying the morality of a people and destabilizing society.

            I was in the New Age subculture for years. It has a certain appeal, to be sure. But you must be very careful, because it is also a tool of those who would destroy us.

          • Kate8

            Karolyn, I know the freedom of which you speak. Just be careful, because it can also be a trap.

            Be careful that it doesn’t cloud your judgement. We need to be able to discern truth from untruth. That is why God gave us the ability to discern. But it’s very easy to be blinded things that appear good when we are open to seduction.

            That is why it is so important to understand what is behind those who claim to want to take ‘care’ of us, because it is simply not the nature of the Beast. It is always at the cost of our liberty and our humanity.

  • ONTIME

    When Juan Williams first came to FOX as a guest commentator, he stunk up the place, I do no care one whit about how smart he was touted to be, his commonsense lack and naitivity were just as blatant as some hayseed at a tux formal in NY. Juan was socialist thru and thru, he reveled in it and endorsed the socialisitic policy. FOX needs to be applauded for introducing Juan the lib to free speech and making a mark inside his foggy congested mind.

    Something called association finally dawned in Juan’s mind, a epiphany took place, the being in contact with successful conservative thinking creeped into Juan’s daily diet of socialism, he was awed by the fact that conservatives stuck to their guns and could play hardball, win with fact and logic, Juan mellowed and absorbed the thinking. It was this intrusion of logic and fact that got Juan into trouble with NPR, now NPR is in deep trouble with the public and finally getting a anal exam that it has so long deserved, firing Juan in such a crude and stalin like way gave great insight as to what the news would be like should the Deemers get control of the medias…..Pravda anyone?

      • DaveH

        No I didn’t, Karolyn. The movie (if accurate) did portray him as not really caring much about money. His social skills were pretty lacking if the movie portrayed him realistically, and I can believe it because I went to college for a while taking computer science courses and many of the young coders were very arrogant and obnoxious.
        But such is life.

          If she was fighting, then placing a foot on her head was one good way to keep her down and out of trouble. On the other hand, stomping on her was very wrong! I didn’t see the tape. But keep in mind that tapes also don’t show everything. The tape that showed Rodney King being beaten was shown to juries trying to decide if the police were harming him – yet the juries who saw ALL the tape ruled them innocent. Think about it.

      Why does the liberal leaning media dummy down the truth about violence and the sickness?

        What sickness? And if somebody can’t handle people with opposing views without violence, there is most definitely something wrong.

        • JeffH

          Karolyn, yes, there is most definitely something wrong. It’s call life.

          • Karolyn

            Jeff – It’s called anger and hate, and it’s perpetrated by those that want to keep their own agendas going. Unfortunately, it probably could be called life in this country, because this country is so full of anger and hate!

          • Kate8

            Karolyn, Yep, it is. Mostly coming from the left.

            What the left calls ‘hate’ and what is real ‘hate’ are two different things entirely.

          • JeffH

            Karolyn, to break it down into simple terms…man(humans) is at the high end of the animal world…survival of the fitest. Those that want control of others use the power they have to force or eliminate the weak and take control the “pack”. Until living beings become extinct there will always be those that want to “run the pack”.

            Guy’s just like George Soros are the alphas and use their money to buy influence and power to gain control of this world((globalized world government). It’s real and it’s happening 24/7 everyday.

          • Kate8

            JeffH, Well said.

            But I fear it will fall on deaf ears.

            If her mother had only aborted her this wouldn’y have happened. Blame the pro-life movement.

        • Karolyn

          Kate I would not generalize on where it’s coming from. Both sides can give as well as get. It is also more of a male problem as far as violence goes.

    Some enlightening news: George Soros invests $50 million to revolutionize the way Americans think.

    The Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET). Three months after a summit in New York state last July, Soros pledged $50 million to INET, which promises “to promote changes in economic theory and practice” by “providing the proper guidance” to “the next generation.”

    That conference’s proceedings reveal INET is applying its talent to “contracting” the U.S. economy, redistributing its wealth, and creating a new world body to “supervise” global financial transactions – a body its elite membership intends to influence.

    One of the conference attendees essentially spelled out its agenda in print. Andre Wilkens, who was formerly “director of the Open Society Institute Brussels (OSI-Brussels) and a founding member of the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR).” Wilkens wrote just after the election of Barack Obama:
    The challenge ahead is to manage a peaceful decline of the west while rescuing as many of the west’s liberal political and economic values as possible…We need new global governance which can both manage the ascent of China, India, Russia, Brazil as well as the relative decline of the United States and Europe. Europe and the US must concentrate on shaping this new global governance and enshrine its progressive values within it, while they still have some power to do so.

    He suggested the world’s elites create piecemeal “global governance based on global financial governance and then move ahead in ways that echo the EU’s evolution” from the European Economic Community (EEC) to a full political union with a centralized parliament, open borders, and a common currency. He concluded by echoing Rahm Emanuel: “The importance is to understand the crisis as an opportunity which should not be wasted.”

    • Kate8

      JeffH – The only way I can see that we could save America is to somehow break free of the foreign power mongers.

      How does George Soros, a foreigner, get away with funding left-wing politics here? I thought taking foreign moneys for that was illegal.

      We need to rise up and break free of Europe for good.

      • JeffH

        Kate8, unfortunately ole Georgie Soros is a naturalized citizen so he uses his freedoms to undermine our freedom…if that makes any sense.

        • Angel Wannabe

          Yeah, JeffH and Kate8, thats what really sux, our own freedoms used against each other___it’s just sad!!

        When markets are calm, especially currency markets, it is difficult for a trader to make money. There is no doubt in my mind that George Soros is promoting leftists because he profits with his currency trading skills when our dollar is in turmoil, and leftists create lots of turmoil in the monetary markets.

        • Kate8

          DaveH – I did read that Soros also put money into McCain’s campaign. I’m sure he’s funding the progressive infiltration of the Right, also.

        Can’t someone find him in a mil-dot?

    Some days this all makes me want to bang my head untill I get the full lobotomy effects :) The issue here I almost bet was the fact that he made a comment against the new protected class. And even a mild one at that. Ever since 9/11 there has been a movement both abroad and at home to soften our attitude twords the Muslim people. The fact is I dont blame the muslims in general for what happend and am smart enough to understand that it wase’nt all muslims that did this. But in its general overreaction the p.c crowd showed its hand again before they won the game. And the people get to see what they are really like on the inside (empty and vapid) Lets take this for what it is N.P.R has been a branch of the goverment for a long time.Funded in large part by the N.E.A That these folks have an agenda shouldent supprise anyone with a mind at all. Juan made the mistake of deviating from the party line that says speak no ill of muslims. Once he crossed that line even in a small way he was no longer usefull to them. But as I said they went over the cliff like Lemmings over a comment that was tiny at best. Leads me to belive that these people that toute the P.C line are not as intellegent as they would like us all to belive. Had they not jumped the gun and just fired him on the spot and in a public manor that they did. There wouldent be this outcry. So take heart people and see this as what it is. A massive blunder on the P.C crowds part in revieling their hand before they won the game. And a massive example that they arent as intellegent as they would have us belive and can be defeated with a little comman sense. Mike L.

      Common sense has been lacking throughout this whole politically correct disease we have been subjected to.

      • http://none Mike

        Yea but by doing what they have done its given a wider audience to their spew. Did you catch the comments of the lady they sent out to support the reason they fired him. She couldent even speak in complete sentances. And showed exactly what she thought of god by quickly changeging her comments from what she was about to say to psychrist.

  • guyb

    Juan Williams is a good man.. He has a few views I do not agree with but that is part of the free speech we have here in America unless we let the far left take over completely. If we look at the truth of what happen to Juan Williams then we can see that the far left democratic machine funded by soros and the cronies like him,then we must decide if thats the America we want or do we want the America of freedom of chose and the American dream of a good job,raise a family and make a better life for our children. I hope we do not let a flag burning president become a 2 term president because that would send a radical message to the rest of the world. It would say,Look at America,there president burns his own flag and is in charge of there fighting men and women who put there lives on the line for the very flag obama burns. WOW…

    I can not believe people are surprised by NPRs actions , they and all taxpayer funded media are and always have been fanatically leftist. I can’t finish this , my hero , Glenn Beck is coming on .

    I’m not surprised that Mara Liasson is now in the crosshairs of the NPR left wing extremists…I said that on Twitter (myfoxmystere). There is an article on Newsmax.com about Juan Williams…he doesn’t always take the liberal side in many things; he will side with Conservatives in many areas. Apparently, that upsets the apple carts of the far left wing liberal extremists!

  • http://mysteresmoonbatslayerclub.blogspot.com mystere

    Ooops! I goofed…the Juan Williams article appeared in World Net Daily, not Newsmax.com. Both are good sources, though. And kudos to Fox News for giving Juan Williams a much better offer than NPR…What I call Nazi Poop Radio!

    Marvin You would rather have these babies of hispanics killed. Shame on you, I guess you are saying this because of you yourself can’t have kids. Or are saying to these women to have abortions? You sound like Opeiceofshit and his administration. As for Angelwanna you let yor kids be put into special classes so that the school would make more money for that district? Sounds like you were taking advantage of the system as well. You guy’s sound like the people you are angry at now doesn’t it. I’ll still pray for you guy’s you really need it.

    Well said,slickporsche. It is oh so easy to point a finger at others and assume “they aren’t doing their part” but it’s a whole different ball game to be honest about what we actually can or cannot do.
    And yes Anthony I write and phone my elected officials on a regular bases; to voice my concern, position and to say thank you. I’ve even called and written those from other districts and states for the same reason. Where I live all 4 things in your “It Used To Be;” are still a way of life here.
    As for Juan Williams, I have been “watching” the change in him for sometime now and the way I see it, each time some one finally “gets it” or is able to see through what’s really going on in our country, our numbers grow and that’s a good thing.
