NPR Fired Juan Williams
I heard about NPR firing Juan Williams:
Williams, a Fox News contributor and 10-year NPR veteran, was fired from the popular public radio syndicate for making comments on "The O'Reilly Factor" about what he describes as his "visceral reaction" to airplane passengers in "Muslim garb." "I get worried. I get nervous," he said.
I can't believe this man was fired because he was honest about what he feels when he sees Muslims dressed in Muslim gear.
I am offended when I see a Muslim woman covered up. There is a lady that lives in my neighborhood that attends all the elementary school functions dressed from head to toe this way. It's disturbing to me, it worries me, and I too get nervous when I see this.
NPR was wrong to fire Juan Williams.
