OK....so NPR fires commentator Juan Williams for saying that when he sees airline passengers who obviously identify with their Muslim faith, he gets nervous. Personally, I agree with Mr. Williams and think that his firing was totally unfair. I also feel that Mr Williams was well within his rights to express an opinion. He wasn't disrespectful or vulgar, nor did he personally attack anyone. His firing is an example of "political correctness" gone so very wrong. I also strongly believe that NPR, with their blatant political bias, should not be funded with any taxpayer money whatsoever.
Today, we have liberal TV personality Joy Behar from "The View," ranting about a Sharon Angle political ad, and calling Ms Angle a "bitch" on national TV. Like Mr Williams, she was expressing her opinion; however she went too far when she called Ms Angle a "bitch" and said that Ms Angle is "going to hell, this bitch." She personally attacked Ms Angle, in a very vulgar and disrespectful way. Ms Behar is entitled to her opinion about the political ad, and about Ms Angle; but there is no call use the "b-word" in a personal attack. In my opinion, this goes beyond "political correctness" and into the realm of viciousness. In my opinion, calling a woman the "b-word" is akin to calling a black person the "n-word." There is no place for it in civilized society, no matter what your political orientation.
Now, I wonder, will there be a response to Ms Behar's vicious personal attack? Or, will she be given a "pass" because of her political leanings? Will Ms Behar be asked to leave "The View," as Mr Williams was asked to leave NPR? Somehow, I doubt it....because, after all, she is a liberal. Double standard? You bet!
