The news of the day is that Juan Williams was fired by NPR for making an insensitive remark about Islam. In other words he committed the one unforgivable liberal sin, he didn't polish the asses of all peace loving Muslims in the world.
Williams was fired for saying this on Bill O'Reilly Monday night:
"But when I get on a plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they're identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous."
Before I get to the point of this post, a brief interlude on the history of tolerance from NPR

Anyways, I was reading this article when this part caught my eye.
NPR says government funding makes up less than 2 percent of it budget, with the rest coming from station fees, sponsorships and grants. This week, the radio network received $1.8 million from billionaire investor George Soros to hire journalists to cover legislatures in all 50 states.
So think about the timeline:
-Monday Juan Williams is on Bill O'Reilly in which he made his offensive comment
-later in the week George Soros donates almost 2 million to NPR
-Thursday, 3 days after this offensive remark, Williams is fired
Williams is fired without being able to speak to anyone at NPR to get an explanation as to why he is fired.
If this is such an offensive remark that he was not even given the opportunity to talk to the person deciding to fire him, why did it take 3 days to do it?
Is it just a coincidence that far-left, anti-American George Soros gave them money and all of a sudden Williams was fired?
I just found it a little interesting.
