Hammes: NPR Firing Shows Arrogance

Juan Williams, pictured, told a television audience that when he saw Muslims boarding a plane it caused him concern. Something Juan Williams now understands he never should have admitted. The group-thinkers at NPR could not allow it to stand unchallenged. Being a leading purveyor of political correctness, they know the world has more to fear from a lumberjack, miner or roughneck than radical Muslims. So they canned him. The people at NPR are shell-shocked at the reaction. The firing of Juan Williams has caused irreparable damage to the reputation and credibility of NPR. The fact they did not expect the backlash is just another example of the arrogance/Dan Hammes, St. Maries Gazette-Record. More here.

Question: What do you make of the Juan Williams’ firing by NPR?
