NPR's Juan Williams Canned After Complaint By Muslim Org. CAIR

CAIR evidently is able to dictate the actions of National Public Radio, a taxpayer funded network. If they have this much power with NPR, who knows what their influence is with Homeland Security or the White House.

The PC firing of Juan Williams should be the straw that breaks NPR's back. The GOP should get rid of funding for this liberal propaganda machine.

In a controversial move by taxpayer-funded National Public Radio, a respected NPR newsman was given the gate by the network brass over alleged derogatory comments he made regarding Muslims and terrorism.

NPR fired longtime “Talk of the Nation” host Juan Williams after the Council of Islamic Relations (CAIR) complained about remarks Williams made while appearing on The O’Reilly Factor Monday.

"NPR might have ignored Williams’ remarks except for the fact that CAIR, which spends its time looking for what it perceives as anti-Muslim bias, called on the network to address the situation. Their mission isn’t really to prevent anti-Muslim bias as much as it is to prevent anyone from offering an opinion of Muslims that is less than favorable, regardless of the truth," said Irvine.

CAIR, America's largest Islamic civil liberties group, has 32 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

While CAIR continues to portray itself as a moderate organization, its history is filled with red flags that are ignored by the mainstream news media.

According to a report from the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Terrorism and Homeland Security:

"The Council on American-Islamic Relations and its employees have combined, conspired, and agreed with third parties, including, but not limited to, the Islamic Association for Palestine , the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, the Global Relief Foundation, and foreign nationals hostile to the interests of the United States, to provide material support to known terrorist organizations, to advance the Hamas agenda, and to propagate radical Islam."

"The Council on American-Islamic Relations, and certain of its officers, directors, and employees, have acted in support of, and in furtherance of, this conspiracy," said the Senate report.
