In Germany they first came for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me —
and by that time no one was left to speak up.
~ Pastor Martin Niemöller
No doubt by now you have heard all about the incredibly disturbing situation with Juan Williams and National Public Radio. (NPR)
On Monday while discussing Muslims, it seems Juan was a bit indelicate while making a broader point. The radicals over at CAIR (the Muslim answer to the NAACP) who cry foul at anything said critical of the so-called “Religion of Peace,” went nuts.
All Juan said was he finds himself feeling uncomfortable when he gets on an airplane and sees Muslims in their garb. (Who doesn't after 9/11?) Now Juan went on to say that we as a nation must learn to get past this. And, well, he's right …. to a point.
Thing is, NPR, which is taxpayer funded, has been looking to get rid of Jan, because he's a regular on more than a few programs on Fox News.
The quote posted above is from Pastor Martin Niemöller and, of course, he was talking about fascism in Nazi Germany. He's making the point that if people had stood up when the government came for one group, and said “Hell No! This dog ain't gonna hunt!” millions of people's lives would have been spared.
Well, we are at a point in this country, where the Marxist-progressive movement is starting to mirror the fascism of Nazi Germany. These people can't compete in the marketplace of ideas. Their ideas are proven failures, and have been for over a century, and around the world.
Marxism, which includes Fascism, Socialism, and Communism, has witnessed catastrophic failure, and seen 100 million men, women, and children murdered by the various states, such as Nazi Germany, Red China, the Soviet Union, and Castro's Cuba.
One thing that our readers know, and history verifies, it was American Marxist-progressives, at the turn of the 20th Century, who were the inspiration for the Nazis. Please remember what Nazi is short for: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or National Socialist German Workers Party.
What does that have to do with Juan Williams?
Let us not forget, the Socialist Party of America recently released the names of 70 democrat members of Congress who belong to their caucus. These are the leaders of the Marxist-democrat party.
Then we have the infamous JournoList, a cabal of so-called main stream “journalists” and members of academia. These are some of the top names in “journalism.” Names everyone who reads knows. When this scandal broke we learned how they all coordinated stories to not only attack the defenders of Liberty and Freedom, but conspired to cover up stories that would harm Barack Obama during the 2008 election. Stories, had they been reported fairly, that would have guaranteed a landslide loss.
We know these people also went into panic mode within minutes of John McCain announcing Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate. They coordinated attacks, made up lies, and even discussed how they could attack Sarah's brand new son Trig, and actually exploit the fact that he is a special needs child. The evil involved in this is off the charts gentle readers.
What we have learned is the Marxist-progressive movement, which has totally taken control of every aspect of the democrat party, has a propaganda machine that would have Joseph Goebbel salivating with envy.
Again, why does this matter? Well, as we reported months ago, most of the hundreds of members of JournoList, including names you know, and (God forbid) may have even trusted, are Communists, Socialists, and/or stooges directly connected to Nazi sympathizer George Soros, the self proclaimed “owner of the democrat party,” and quite possibly one of the most evil men alive today.
All of these people, the Marxist-democrats, the JournoListers, and most certainly George Soros, are incredibly anti-Constitution, anti-Rule of Law, and anti-American.
These people work daily through thousands of groups, many who have at least received seed money from Soros, to undermine the American experiment. These people smear anyone and everyone who doesn't march lock step (or is it goose step) with their insane ideology.
At the big “One Nation” rally (flop) an open gathering of Communists and Socialists, promoted by Barack Obama through his Organizing for America permanent campaign, that was held on the Washington Mall in response to Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor rally (where over 500,000 celebrated) many top Marxist-democrats where chastising Juan in speeches calling him an “Uncle Tom” and worse.
Juan is just as much a progressive as the rest of these losers, but since he also thinks for himself, sometimes strays off the plantation, and of course, appears on Fox News, he's become one of those “uppity” Negroes. The kind who would have found a cross burning in his yard a generation ago.
Look, I'm not one of Juan Williams biggest fans. I disagree with him on just about every level, but the man comes off pretty well for a progressive. His seems relatively reasonable, when compared to his fellow travelers. The only time he just goes stupid is when he's talking about certain strong Conservative women, like Sarah Palin. Then he goes full on stupid, just like his former friends. But you know what? I support the man's God given freedom to speak his mind. It's the only way we can be truly free, something those on the left fear more than death itself. You see, people who are truly free, won't put up with the nonsense the left is pushing.
Popular speech never needs defending. It's the sort of speech that makes you angry, or even sick to your stomach, that must be defended vigorously. One man's "hate speech" is another man's music. And I'm using the Marxist definition of "hate speech," which is anything the Marxists disagree with.
Speaking of Sarah Palin, she tweeted Juan, and weighed in with a powerful editorial via Facebook:
Juan Williams: Going Rogue
At a time when our country is dangerously in debt and looking for areas of federal spending to cut, I think we've found a good candidate for defunding. National Public Radio is a public institution that directly or indirectly exists because the taxpayers fund it. And what do we, the taxpayers, get for this? We get to witness Juan Williams being fired from NPR for merely speaking frankly about the very real threat this country faces from radical Islam.
We have to have an honest discussion about the jihadist threat. Are we not allowed to say that Muslim terrorists have killed thousands of Americans and continue to plot the deaths of thousands more? Are we not allowed to say that there are Muslim states that aid and abet these fanatics? Are we not allowed to even debate the role that radical Islam plays in inciting this violence?
I don’t expect Juan Williams to support me (he's said some tough things about me in the past) – but I will always support his right and the right of all Americans to speak honestly about the threats this country faces. And for Juan, speaking honestly about these issues isn't just his right, it's his job. Up until yesterday, he was doing that job at NPR. Firing him is their loss.
If NPR is unable to tolerate an honest debate about an issue as important as Islamic terrorism, then it's time for “National Public Radio” to become “National Private Radio.” It's time for Congress to defund this organization.
NPR says its mission is “to create a more informed public,” but by stifling debate on these issues, NPR is doing exactly the opposite. President Obama should make clear his commitment to free and honest discussion of the jihadist threat in our public debates – and Congress should make clear that unless NPR provides that public service, not one more dime.
Mr. President, what say you?
~ Sarah Palin
Something tells me Barack Obama is going to either hide under his desk on this one, or come out and say something outrageously stupid. He's not going to step up though, as these are his people. These are the sort that carry the water for “community organizing” street thugs.
Sarah is right though, we need to defund the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and do it ASAP. This group funds both NPR and PBS. When the Corporation for Public Broadcasting was founded in the 1960s, it served a purpose. There were only three television networks, at the time, and they had little “public interest” programming.
As FDR had instituted the “Fairness Doctrine” which also killed free speech, just like the Marxists are wanting to do today, there was no talk radio. Most radio was AM, and was either Top 40 music, Country, or possible a combination of the two. NPR supposedly filled the void. Again a void created by the closest thing we ever had to a dictator in this country, the FDR administration, which killed free speech.
Today we have over 500 television channels available to virtually every American. Terrestrial radio is filled with all sorts of talk shows, as well as any kind of music you want to hear. We even have satellite radio that has hundreds of channels of just about anything one can dream of.
And let's not forget the internet, something that is also available, one way or another, to most of the American people. The information available online is virtually, endless, unlimited.
No legitimate reason exists to continue to fund this any more, especially since Both NPR, as well as the “news” programming on PBS is as far left as it gets. Like most of the media, NPR and PBS basically serve as stenographers for the left. House organs of propaganda.
Taxpayers have poured billions of dollars into this boondoggle since 1969. $400 million in 2008 alone. This chart lays it all out.
Enough is enough.
Besides, George Soros has opened his check book and is giving NPR as well as the notorious hate website, the Huffington Post, millions of dollars. Soros recently threw in the towel when it comes to funding the Marxist-democrat party, because even he knows they are going to be all but wiped out come November, and will have no power, thus unable to help him destroy America as we know it. Better to fund a compliant and quite willing media, instead.
Glenn Beck has been hitting George Soros, and all of the extreme radicals, who are actually controlling the Marxist agenda in this country, all week long on his television show.
Thursday's show was particularly strong as Glenn points out the absolute evil that has taken control of the American media, which you will see in the first few minutes of the show. Pure evil.
Also in the first segment, Glenn discussed a hit piece on Sarah Palin that appeared in POLITCO Thursday called “Hurricane Sarah.” There is literally not a single word in the story that is true. Not a single word!
Every person mentioned in this story has demanded POLITICO print a retraction and apology.
This piece of trash was penned by Jonathan Martin, a know member of JournoList. As it happens, POLITICO appears to have more known JournoList members on it's staff than any other media entity. With this sort of “quality” you can imagine just how slanted their stories are. Not worth the bandwidth they take up.
You can see the first segment of Glenn's powerful show below:
You'll notice, like Martin Niemöller before him, Glenn warns the left wingers in the media, that radicals like Soros, and Obama won't stop with getting him, or Fox News silenced. Sooner or later they'll get around to them as well. It's how these things always turn out.

In case you've missed any of this week's (or any week's) episodes of Glenn's show, The Right Scoop has these archived daily, as well as many more must see videos.
If you are wondering what NPR does with your tax dollars, well it uses them to attack you, of course!
I think most of our readers are sophisticated enough to know what “teabagging” is, in the popular slang of the day. To put it gently, it's an act performed by homosexual males. The name was first widely used by CNN's Anderson Cooper, who …. well …. should know, if ya catch my drift. If you need more, look it up in the Urban Dictionary online.
The left, in all of it's vile glory delights in calling members of the Tea Party “teabaggers, ” exclusively. And yes, this includes our President.
With that said, I give you this little number: How to Speak Tea Bag, which appeared on NPR's website and was heavily promoted by them as "serious political commentary."
Nothing like being insulted with your own tax dollars, huh? These disciples of Saul Alinksy have the minds of a child.
Oh, and this sad chapter in American history gets better. We have learned that NPR is now going after another one of it's contributors, Maura Liasson, a very reliably lefty, and long time Fox News contributor. Andrew Breitbart has stated he feels Soros, and his many groups, are looking to intimidate members of their party, to make them think twice about going on Fox, in hopes of killing the “fair and balanced” programming formula.
Looking at the way Fox News surrounded the wagons and supported Juan Williams Thursday, and continue to do on Friday, Soros' plans look to be a losing proposition, to say the least.
All I know for sure, is events like these, are exactly why the elections less than two weeks away are the most important elections in our nation's history. Our one shot to reign in the insanity, and stop the radicals in their tracks.
Friends, you must vote, and you must drag everyone you know with you. No excuses. Not this time.
In America they first came for Juan Williams, and I didn't speak up, because I wasn't Juan Williams.
Then they came for Maura Liasson, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't Maura Liasson ...
