Speaking truthfully about one's fears and beliefs shouldn't be squelched just because someone may be offended by it. My outspokenness about being proud to be an atheist angers people who want me to say I believe in their god just to confirm their own beliefs. I also believe Israel's ruthless invasion and theft of Palestinian property is exactly what their Bronze Age barbaric ancestors did to the Palestinian ancestors. I have a right to express my opinions if I believe in them. So does Juan Williams.

"Opinions are like a**holes. Everyone has one"
To some peeps, someone else's a**hole err opinion may stink. Or they may find it bloody revolting. All the while, the person with the a**hole...err...opinion may think their own smells a whole lot sweeter than everyone else's when everyone thinks otherwise. Then when that person catches a whiff of another person's opinion, it reeks just as bad to them.
Peeps just don't fathom that their own opinions stink just as bad as another person's.

P.S. Always wipe really good, bathe regularly and change your underwear everyday

The skit Saturday Night Live does of NPR is basically all they really are these days. In the same circumstance, everybody deep down would feel the exact way Juan described he felt.
The irony is that they're too afraid to say that they are too afraid!!! I'm not. They scare me and I want them to go away.

I thought the NPR was supposed to be fair in its views. I think Williams statement accuratly reflected his views. I don't see them as racist but someones opinion. I certainly do not see it as dangerous or even a serious comment. He did not advocate any action about Muslims.
