What's Going On Here?

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

A Brief History of NPR's Intolerance and Imbalance


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.

Two questions:

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.

Of course Soros had a hand in it. He's the puppet master not only behind Obummer but a majority of the leftist media.

Reminiscent of what happened to Michael Graham back in 2005.

Ticker, I wonder if he soured on Obama, he's sitting out this election - supposedly

AOW, nice that the media practices the free speech it enjoys for itself.

He's not sitting out the election Chuck. He has pour millions into the Texas Governor election and even more millions into other states. The governors races may be more important this year than the congressional ones since it is time for redistricting. With Dems in governors chairs it will mean that the states will be redistricted to give the Dems more votes which translates into Dems winning more congressional seats.
No Soros knows what he is doing.
I don't think he is exactly happy with his sock puppet however since he has failed to completely destroy the US economy as Soros stated that he would do. Look for some shady crap to come out of the upcoming G-20 conference on currency. Remember the spin off on the Tobin Tax that Soros came up with as well as Obama's Global Poverty Plan? It has to do with tax on currency and exchanges between countries and individuals exchanging money between countries. A homegrown version is Pelosi's, actually Soros' Transaction Tax which taxes every transaction you make at a bank. So again, no Soros is making headway and is not sitting out the election. He has to have his puppets in order to do his mischief.

Ticker, I misspoke. He is sitting out the Congressional elections.

Actually he is helping fund an effort to elect Democrat friendly Secretaries of State at the state level. This will make it easier for them to steal elections.

It seems Juan Williams isn't quite left enough for NPR.
