Breakfast Scramble (Friday)

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Juan Williams, National Public Radio Fox News [1]:

Yesterday NPR fired me for telling the truth. The truth is that I worry when I am getting on an airplane and see people dressed in garb that identifies them first and foremost as Muslims.

This is not a bigoted statement. It is a statement of my feelings, my fears after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 by radical Muslims. In a debate with Bill O’Reilly I revealed my fears to set up the case for not making rash judgments about people of any faith. I pointed out that the Atlanta Olympic bomber — ¬†as well as Timothy McVeigh [2] and the people who protest against gay rights at military funerals — are Christians but we journalists don’t identify them by their religion.

Dope from Hope gets one right:

(CNN [3]) – In the wake of NPR’s firing of contributor Juan Williams over comments about Muslims, Mike Huckabee is calling on the next Congress to cut the radio network’s funding when it convenes next year.

“NPR has discredited itself as a forum for free speech and a protection of the First Amendment rights of all and has solidified itself as the purveyor of politically correct pabulum and protector of views that lean left,” Huckabee said in a statement provided to CNN.

If NPR wants to the broadcast network of record for George Soros, lets Soros foot the bill.
