NPR's federal funding questioned after firing analyst Juan Williams

There are 720 comments on the The Post-Standard story from Oct 22, 2010, titled NPR's federal funding questioned after firing analyst Juan Williams. In it, The Post-Standard reports that:

Conservatives and some liberals say NPR went too far in axing a longtime news analyst for saying he gets nervous on planes when he sees people in Muslim dress, and at least one U.S. senator said he would start the ball rolling in cutting federal funding to the network.

Ridiculous.
The House of Representatives should also implement a new House UnAmerican Activities Committee and thoroughly investigate the ties, associations and activities of NPR and all its associates at all levels of its operations, nationally and internationally. There are so many examples for decades of the extreme and biased use of NPR to promote every deviance and disruptive behavior on voting Americans and irresponsibly, intentionally on children.

MY PLATFORM TO RUN IN 2012

1. abolish IRS and have a 10% flat tax on all income and sales tax. tired of the rich paying all the taxes(I'm not rich). in 2010 only 47% of Americans paid and filed for income tax and 53% did not pay at all. Time to do your fair share.
2. abolish Soc Sec and pay everyone back in full that put in. Privatize retirement you'll make more money, it's not the Governnments job to feed,cloth or shelter you.
3. Secure border with military.
4. stop all wars and bring every soldier home. we are NOT the world police
5. kick every country out of the UN and halt all $ aid that supports terrorists
6. inact civil unions in every state for same sex couples if state votes it in.
7. revamp medicaid and offer a public option
8. repeal NAFTA and bust all unions make it a right to work nation and free market.
9. no more lobbyists and special interest groups allowed
10. term limits of max 8yrs for any elected official and no retirement plan.YOU are in office to serve the public not yourself.
11. abolish electoral college and have majority vote win for President
12. revamp judicial system
13. mandatory death sentence in all 50 states for murder,rape, and child molester no appeal after 90days of sentencing prisoner will be executed.
14. raise driving age to 18 lower drinking age to 18
15. mandatory 2 years service in Armed Forces at age 18, better for this generation for work force and have college paid for.
16. privatize school system not the Governments job to educate your children.
17. 2 yr max limit on welfare and unemployment benefits lifetime.
18. for illegals in country let each state vote for amensty if granted all will start to pay taxes immediately, for states that vote against all will be deported.
19. repeal and revamp healthcare bill.
20. no mosque built within 10 miles of any muslim terrorist act
21. any American muslim that commits terrorist act will be tried for treason and executed.
22. all officials will have a base salary and benefits while in office. but upon retire or voted out will lose all said benefits
these would be my talking points and platform to run this country and get it back to greatness.
NEWSFLASH;
it is NOT the Governments job to get you a job,educate you,feed you, cloth you,give you shelter or keep you healthy.
it IS the Governments job to protect us from all threats foreign and domestic and to uphold the law of the land. When will libutards,socialists, and marxists get that through their tiny skulls?

It hit November 2nd.

680 new republicans to state houses, 64 new republican house members, 6 new senators and 11 new republican govenors..........kinda says it all, but through your weak attempt to minimize the HUGE tidal wave that cleaned the beaches.....keep looking in the mirror and chanting it didn't happen, it didn't happen.

Juan Williams calls for defunding ‘elitist’ NPR
October 22, 2010
Everyone on “The O’Reilly Factor” last night was calling for Congress to defund NPR, but Juan Williams, at that point, didn’t join that particular call.
Until this morning.
Here’s the transcript from “Fox and Friends:”
Gretchen Carlson: Some members of Congress are calling for NPR to be defunded.
Juan Williams:
You know what? I love NPR. I think that NPR is an important institution. I think oftentimes the quality of journalism is fantastic. I’m not about attacking NPR. But I do think this, Gretchen. If they want to compete in the marketplace, they should compete in the marketplace. They don’t need public funds.
I think they should go out there, if they think the product is so great, go out and sell the product. And what happens is, too often, then, they want to make it out like,“You know what? We are a public jewel and we need the protection of the federal government. We need federal funds that come through the member stations and they pay for this product.”
Nonsense. They are on a federal dole, is what it is And they better admit it and step up if they want to compete.
He went on to suggest that “without a diversity of views, without a diversity of people,” competing will be difficult. He said NPR is “speaking to an elitist crowd” and has “become self-righteous in their attitudes” which is “why they want to attack somebody like me.”

NPR is so left - they have two left feet.

NPR is so left - they will drive around the block to avoid turning right.

All joking aside, NPR needs to be de-funded. I've already contacted my congressman, and both senators to let them know how displeased I am about the firing of Juan Williams. I encourage everyone to do the same.

I rarely agree with Juan, but it is ( at least for the moment ) a free country. Nobody should be fired because they break some kind of unwritten POLITICALLY CORRECT SPEECH CODE !

I will not be silenced by the left, I will speak my mind, if they call me a bigot for doing that, SO BE IT !

The Democrats are pretending poeple only voted Republican to send a message. If they really didn't want a Republican Government they could have voted for the Green party, or the Communists, or someone other then Republican. I do hope they give Nancy with the botox face the manority leadership role.

I can't wait for liberals to really see what Sharia Law will do to them......we can take all the gays and stone them, we can take all the adulterous women and stone them, we can take all the illegals and blacks and other thiefs and cut off their hands for stealing,(without dulling the pain and the benefit of even a bandaid), oh and just wait for the beheadings.......what fun.

Yep the loons are going to really love it. This is a Soros ploy again pure and simple, where he and other progressives that want international law are pushing the fact that if states do not object or fight actions then by omission or by the state's being mute about Sharia or international Law then by their actions they are approving it........THAT IS WHY OKLAHOMA PUT THE QUESTION ON THE BALLOT AND WHY THEY ARE BY THEIR ACTIONS BLOCKING THIS COMMUNIST PLOY AGAINST OUR CONSTITUTION FROM HAPPENING. STAND PROUD OKLAHOMA.......

You loons keep supporting Soros and his little band of progressives..........he is laughing all the way to the bank.

Ok,you really think this is one gem of a post since you put it on all the threads. It seems pretty sadistic that you are anxious to see atrocities. But you needn't worry about Sharia law in America. As far as George Soros, he is a businessman going about making jillions of dollars around the world, doing what he wants. He has no "band", he has no interest in groups, he is an individual, and has no idea that there are crazy people out there who obsess over him. Thanks to Glen Beck, Mr. Lunatic.
