The CBC reports that NPR fires news analyst for comments on Muslims

National Public Radio says it has terminated the contract of longtime news analyst Juan Williams after comments he made about Muslims on the Fox News Channel.

The U.S. radio broadcaster reported its move on its website. It said Williams appeared on The O’Reilly Factor on Monday and told host Bill O’Reilly that he gets worried and nervous when he sees people dressed in Muslim-style clothes on airplanes.

Actually, I would have sent him to report from Phoenix, Arizona for a while to see how he liked the local sheriff.

NPR has a number of on air personalities who would probably be happier working for Rupert Murdoch, and since there will surely be cuts coming after the elections it is time to “prune the deadwood from the orchard”.

I get nervous when I see men in dark suits carrying Bibles coming down the street because I know that they are coming to round up the witches for burning.

Now, now, Аня, they didn’t burn witches in this country, they hanged them. It was the Europeans in bathrobes with Bibles that burned witches. The clear thinking Calvinists reasoned that as creatures of Hell, fire wouldn’t do the job properly, so a rope was called for.

This was the same clear thinking that told them that witches would float because they didn’t have the weight of a soul anymore.

Very logical, the Calvinists, but it should be expected of a religious movement started by a French lawyer.

I get nervous around protesters at family planning clinics, but then they have murdered three people down here.

Burn, hang… whatever.

Religious extremists, regardless of their garb, or religion, are scary people. The thing is you can’t tell a nutcase by their shell…

Wait… bathrobes? Oh, dear… I go about in a bathrobe all the time.

Judges, ministers, priests, professors, witches, wizards, warlocks, bloggers, druids – it’s a bathrobe world and the suits are just visiting.

Actually, most Wiccans I know tend to all natural fabrics and vegetable dyes with the clothing made by someone they know, or themselves.
