Looks like I will no longer get to enjoy Juan Williams’ political analysis on NPR. He just got canned for telling Bill O’Reilly in the above video that he gets nervous when he sees Muslims on his plane:
“I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
David Folkenflik, coincidentally NPR’s media critic, is all over this on Twitter.
What I am waiting to see is if all those folks who rushed to Helen Thomas’ defense are the first to through stones at Williams.
