If you didn’t hear NPR correspondent and part time Fox News contributor, Juan Williams, was fired yesterday for remarks he made regarding Islam and Muslims. I think he just was being honest and saying what many people feel anyway. The irony in this is that the people who are coming to his defense are not the “tolerance” minded crowd on the left, but the evil right. Sarah Palin blogged it in the Weekly Standard today. “I don’t expect Juan Williams to support me (he’s said some tough things about me in the past) – but I will always support his right and the right of all Americans to speak honestly about the threats this country faces. And for Juan, speaking honestly about these issues isn’t just his right, it’s his job. Up until yesterday, he was doing that job at NPR. Firing him is their loss.

I agree with Sarah on this. NPR has made a huge mistake and has shown their true colors (not that it was a big surprise to the PD crowd). Defunding them and using that cash for something else might not be a bad idea.
