Yes, Juan Williams got canned by NPR. Yes it was outrageous and unjust.
My take is going to be short and sweet.
It is poetic justice to see a liberal, who has spent his life fighting to inflict left winged idiocy on the REST OF US – it is JUSTICE to see the same idiocy used against him.
I’m not going to follow the easy path of expressing sympathy for this guy as they are doing on Fox, which awarded Williams with an undeserved, $2 million dollar reward . I’m not subscribing to the prosaic “he may be a liberal but he’s our liberal” nonsense.
Yes IT WAS UNJUST and ludicrous what NPR did to Juan. But Juan has devoted his life to the cause of putting the screws to US and he needs to get a good taste of what he’s been cooking all these years.
Until Juan does a 180 and renounces his party and his life’s work, what Juan has been insisting is good for the gander, should be good for the goose. Taste it, like it or RENOUNCE it – because this is the defining example of irrational, illogical, pc leftism.
That sympathetic narrative is too trite for me to digest. He doesn’t -deserve- to be rewarded with a BETTER contract simply because he was victimized by the EXACT ideology he has devoted his career to spreading. That ideology has virtually destroyed this country. No, I REFUSE to embrace this intellectual banality the way they are trying to play it. That’s about RATINGS for Fox and is not the argument, the approach nor the train of reasoning that best serves this country. The enemy of my enemy is –still- my enemy when both factions represent Marxism.
To elevate Williams is an injustice because most of – US- don’t get to reap REWARDS for damaging the country. Yes, defund NPR. I’ve been saying that for decades. That doesn’t mean Juan should be given a larger platform to spread his errors.
“Juan brings ‘balance’ to the debate”??? Well, excuse me but I believe what we call “conservative” is TRUTH. I do not believe that peppering truth with moderate dosages of idiocy represents “balance”. Why in the HELL do we feel it obligatory to “balance” TRUTH with lies???
If we actually BELIEVE these self evident truths, how could we dare contend that diluting it with error represents BALANCE?
Mark my words, this same group of pundits force feeding this crap to us tonight are the same people who are going to be cramming Mitt Romney down our throats in 2012 while they distort and vilify the reputations of those who oppose that contemptible RINO just as Fox did in 2008.
