THE JUAN WILLIAMS FIRING: NOW IS PRECISELY THE TIME FOR A NATIONAL CONVERSATION ABOUT THE THREAT OF RADICAL ISLAM By Joel C. Rosenberg (Jacksonville, Florida, October 22, 2010) -- That National Public Radio fired liberal commentator Juan Williams this week for publicly expressing on the Fox News Channel his anxieties about Muslims in America is appalling, but not surprising. NPR has long been hostile to the views of evangelical Christians and conservatives. Now, apparently, they are even hostile towards liberals who express personal sentiments on a conservative TV program. But the dust up is important not simply because it exposed once again the left-wing bias of NPR and demonstrated yet again why the network should not receive a dime of public funding. It was important because of the chilling implications over free speech in this country.
Are we really not allowed to say in a post-9/11 world that Muslims traveling on planes make some Americans uneasy? What else are we not allowed to say? Should we not discuss the threat of Radical Muslims to Judeo-Christian civilization? Are we not allowed to express our concerns about what would happen if Radical Muslims acquired nuclear, chemical or biological weapons? What happened to free speech in this country?
The vast majority of Muslims in the U.S. and around the world (upwards of 90 to 93 percent) are moderate, peaceful people. They don't believe in jihad. They are not suicide bombers or terrorists. They want good jobs, good schools for their kids, and the right to practice their faith without persecution or government interference. But there is a small but important percentage of Muslims that are highly dangerous. They believe that Islam is the answer, and violent jihad is the way. Americans need to talk about both groups. We need to learn about and discuss the differences. We need to understand who the Radicals are, and who the Reformers are.
At the same time, we need to understand that there is a subset of Radical Muslims who are even more dangerous. They don't simply want to terrorize us; they want to annihilate us. Chief among them are the "Twelvers," a Shia Muslim cult who believe that end of the world is at hand, that the Islamic messiah known as the "Twelfth Imam" is coming to earth at any moment, and that the way to hasten the arrival of the Twelfth Imam is to annihilate two countries - Israel, which they call the "Little Satan," and the United States, which they call the "Great Satan." What makes these Twelvers especially dangerous right now is that they are running the current government of Iran. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei is a Twelver, and says he actually met with the Twelfth Imam last July. Iranian President Ahmadinejad is a lifelong Twelver, and is actively seeking to build nuclear weapons. Both have publicly called for the annihilation of the U.S. and Israel, and they are doing so for expressly religious purposes.
The world is doing precious little to stop such men. The Obama administration certainly isn't taking decisive action to stop Iran from getting the Bomb. So every day the danger grows that the Twelvers will get nuclear weapons and either use them against Israel, and then the U.S., or give those weapons to terrorist groups who will seek to obliterate their enemies. Now is precisely the time to talk about such things. Now is precisely the time to talk as Americans about our anxieties and our fears. This is why I wrote a new political thriller entitled, The Twelfth Imam, to help foster such a national conversation and to take people inside the story and to help them imagine what might happen if the world ignores the threat posed by the leaders of Iran.
NPR apparently wants to silence Americans who are concerned about the threat of Radical Islam. Thankfully, there are a multitude of other media outlets who permit a national conversation about Radical Islam to take place. Such a conversation is, after all, more needed than ever. Joel Rosenberg
The best way to describe the firing of Juan Williams is POLITICAL CORRECTNESS RUN AMOK.
The Juan Williams firing is a perfect example of cultural Marxism at work. Even a liberal black man who has spent his entire life fighting against racism and for liberal causes is open to attack. But don't be confused. The Politically Correct elite are not pro Islam. The position taken is actually anti Christian and anti traditional values, at its core. Islam only comes into play because the religion is viewed as a minority in America. These politically correct fanatics are ultimately against any religion that gets in the way of their atheist beliefs, and that certainly includes Islam ... but not at the moment. All of a sudden freedom of religion is immensely important to athiests who don't believe in God??? Give me a break.
Do you really think Juan Williams would have been fired if he had made a statement that was offensive to evangelical Christians or Jews? The politically correct cultural elite is against anyone who makes a comment contrary to their accepted talking points, especially from their own camp. That is how their brainwashing works. Any woman or minority who strays from the marching orders is subject to attack.
Remember, The Frankfurt School wrote about American public education. It said,"it did not matter if school children learned any skills or any facts. All that mattered was that they graduate from the schools with the right "attitudes" on certain questions." Also; Cultural Marxism taught a principle called the "Tran-valuation of all values" which was incorporated in the cultural Marxism teaching. Tran-valuation is defined as follows: “those acts defined as sin traditionally become virtues, and traditionally accepted virtues become sins. Homosexuality is a fine and good thing, but anyone who thinks men and women should have different social roles is an evil "fascist." That is what political correctness now teaches children in public schools all across America. In the same way Islam is contrary to Christianity, Judaism, and traditional values which are redefined as evil ... so naturally any contrary teachings including "Islam" are deemed good. In the same way; witchcraft, satanism and most false religions qualify as good to the degree that they oppose Christianity. Minority status trumps the fact that Islamic teachings might be repugnant to the politically correct. The target is Christianity and its values. That is also why Sarah Palin is despised and ridiculed; and other women like Pelosi or Boxer are respected by the politically correct, regardless of their failings.
They believed the Obama victory was their victory when Obama stated; "we are the ones we have been waiting for." They were confident they would be able to force all of their Marxist changes on America ... just like they forced health care. The thought that they will now lose control in this coming election is driving this enemy of freedom to desperation.
If you think this is an isolated event, you must be kidding. They are still working their plans for implementation of this evil for the remaining two years of Obama's term of office. I was told earlier today by a progressive Marxist: "We can solve all of our problems by creating an environment whereby the middle (and lower) classes are empowered economically." Obviously, to do that we must have a massive transfer of wealth which is unconstitutional and un-American.
... and "the reason we (white people) are angry is "because we see "minorities" "taking" what we feel is rightfully ours; and we also can't accept a black president." The last I heard Obama is 1/2 white. (but in reality the president's skin color was NOT even an issue of discussion) Do you see how race is used in an attempt to divide and conquer? This is the worst form of racism thrown at me by a black man. He can't even imagine that the majority of Americans reject these ideas as anti-American. And then he called those who don't agree with this ideology "morons"
This has nothing to do with creating a job friendly environment. Employers are evil ... workers are good, and only the government and unions can be trusted to provide for us. This is why there was no effort to stimulate small businesses in America with the stimulus plan. They are anti small business. Small businesses are not stimulated because the socialists don't want people to be free of their control.OUR STIMULUS MONEY WAS DELIVERED TO THE UNIONS IN EXCHANGE FOR CAMPAIGN FINANCING! This is insane. But unfortunately our fellow Americans elected this alien life form who hid their true identity and motives to get elected, and who speak in a foreign language with words redefined to mean the exact opposite of what we know to be true.
Beware of the Politically Correct Alien Life Forms who have invaded America.
And get ready .... this is America's 2nd Civil War. All of our freedoms are in the balance.
Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
God Bless you my friends, Bob
