NPR fires Juan Williams over O’Reilly appearance

UPDATE: Full segment at the bottom

Juan Williams is a regular guest on the O’Reilly Factor. This week, the topic for he and Mary Katherine Ham was his view appearance and Juan said this:

“I think, look, political correctness can lead to some kind of paralysis where you don’t address reality. I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”

Here’s the video:

Kinda ironic. I guess Juan was right after all because it looks like political correctness paralyzed NPR. Eh, he’s better off without them! Besides, look at the bright side. Now he won’t be getting any of that Soros/NPR money.
