Meanwhile, on another show, Juan Williams explains he gets uncomfortable and nervous seeing fully garbed Muslims on a plane – Juan was fired.
So why the incredible double standard?
I’ve read the left-wing bloggers excusing Joy’s rants because she’s an “entertainer” but these are the same folks crucifying every talk radio blowhard from Glenn Beck to Rush Limbaugh.
The firing of Juan Williams by NPR has set off a firestorm to stop taxpayer funds from fueling this hypocritical agenda. Jim DeMint has led the charge to end the federal funding of NPR.
NPR received $4 billion in federal money since 2001 and will get $430 million in the 2011. Republican Minority Whip Eric Cantor and nearly every Republican running for office this year promised to seek an end to taxpayer subsidies for NPR and public television.I seldom agree with Brit Hume’s narrow perspective, but Brit said: ”And I think it is simply this, that in the culture of NPR, appearing on Fox is a sin. And in the culture of NPR, for an African American man like Juan, regardless of his extraordinary stature, to be there and be kind of a Bill Cosby liberal, not a down-the-line liberal, is a sin as well.
A Bill Cosby liberal.
The progressives will tolerate the unhinged behavior of Joy Behar as long as the target is an enemy of the agenda. This is agenda is narrowly constructed that a slight misstep, one belief too close to Cosby or Williams and you can be banished from their playground.
Modern liberalism: intolerant, bigoted, mean spirited and most dangerous of all, without accountability.
