[UPDATED again] Juan Williams says, "I get nervous when I see people in Muslim garb getting on the plane"
Liberal FOX News commentator, Juan Williams, also reminds us of the Times Square bomber who said the war with the West is just starting.
Liberal pantywaists at NPR fired Williams for the above remarks. I hope these PC pussies get killed in the next MUSLIM terrorist attack.
HUFFPONPR announced late on Wednesday night that it has terminated the contract of longtime analyst Juan Williams over his comments on Fox News that, when he is on a plane with Muslims, “I get nervous.”
In a statement, NPR said that it had informed Williams of its decision on Wednesday night, and that his remarks were “inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.”
Williams had been a contributor and analyst at NPR for decades, but his dual role on Fox News — where he has also been a longtime and frequent contributor — drew so many complaints from NPR’s listeners that it asked Fox News to stop identifying Williams as an “NPR News Political Analyst” in 2009.
Terrorist Front Group CAIR is behind the firing of Williams.
BreitbartUnindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Terrorist Financing FBI case CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) said, “NPR should address the fact that one of its news analysts seems to believe that all airline passengers who are perceived to be Muslim can legitimately be viewed as security threats,” said CAIR National Executive DirectorNihad Awad. “Such irresponsible and inflammatory comments would not be tolerated if they targeted any other racial, ethnic or religious minority, and they should not pass without action by NPR.”
He noted that media commentators who launch rhetorical attacks on Islam and Muslims normally do not suffer the professional consequences of those who similarly target other racial, ethnic or religious groups.
Awad said CAIR publishes a pocket guide, called “Your Rights and Responsibilities as an American Muslim,” with a section that deals with the right of airline passengers to “courteous, respectful and non-stigmatizing treatment by airline and security personnel.”
(Of course no other group is targeted, no other group is blowing up planes)
LA TIMES As National Public Radio weathered a storm of criticism Thursday for its decision to fire news analyst Juan Williams for his comments about Muslims, Fox News moved aggressively to turn the controversy to its advantage by signing Williams to an expanded role at the cable news network.
Fox News Chief Executive Roger Ailes handed Williams a new three-year contract Thursday morning, in a deal that amounts to nearly $2 million, a considerable bump up from his previous salary, the Tribune Washington Bureau has learned. The Fox News contributor will now appear exclusively and more frequently on the cable news network and have a regular column on FoxNews.com.
“Juan has been a staunch defender of liberal viewpoints since his tenure began at Fox News in 1997,” Ailes said in a statement, adding a jab at NPR: “He’s an honest man whose freedom of speech is protected by Fox News on a daily basis.”
