As a karate expert, ‘Puter would like to state that NPR is a perfect illustration of political correctness run amok. Aiding and abetting NPR in its fundamentalist jihad are leading “news” organizations such as the Washington Post and the New York Times.
NPR fired long time correspondent Juan Williams last night. NPR states that Mr. Williams’ comments on the The O’Reilly Factor were “inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.” For reference, these must be the same editorial standards that permit hiring (alleged) plagiarist Nina Totenberg. Mr. Williams must have said something truly offensive, like advocating for a new Holocaust or calling the differently abled sub-human, right?
Wrong. Mr. Williams’ firing offense was to state, in the context of rebutting Bill O’Reilly’s screed, that he, too, sometimes gets nervous when around Muslims, and that feeling that way is a rational reaction to the current Islamist terrorist siege. Mr. Williams went on to say, that while feeling that way is rational, it is no reason to paint all Muslims, or an entire Muslim nation as terrorist. What a horrible thought crime! How dare Mr. Williams give voice to a perfectly apt description of millions of law abiding, pro-tolerance Americans’ state of mind.
The Washington Post and the New York Times both run stories today (linked above) on the firing. Neither of the articles make any mention of the context of Mr. Williams’ statement. That is, the “journalists” conveniently omit the second half of Mr. Williams’ statement that put the first half in context. Mainstream news organizations have devolved into propaganda arms bent on protecting the system our so-called elites have set up to make themselves feel better about contributing nothing of value to our society or culture. If you dare cross a self-proclaimed elite, or question elitists’ most cherished beliefs, the elite dominated media will destroy you. Mr. Williams’ failure to worship the golden calf of political correctness earned him a trip to the unemployment line.
‘Puter believes that NPR has long been looking for an excuse to fire Mr. Williams. It’s been whispered around teh intarwebs that Mr. Williams’ coworkers at NPR hated the fact that he moonlighted at Fox News. This non issue happened to be a convenient excuse to get rid of a fair, open minded reporter, one that NPR’s leftie listeners would readily accept.
Mr. Williams’ firing illustrates the truth of Justice Clarence Thomas’ words ‘Puter quoted yesterday:
And from my standpoint, as a black American, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree.
If you substitute “an angry, out of touch, allegedly elite, liberal media” for “a committee of the U.S. Senate, it’s spot on.
And, Mr. Williams, please contact Sleestak to set up an interview. The Gormogons would love to have you on staff. We have a generous pay package that includes all the absinthe you can drink, and a top flight health care page including the services of Royal Physician Dr. J.
Always right, unless he isn’t, the infallible Ghettoputer F. X. Gormogons claims to be an in-law of the Volgi, although no one really believes this.
’Puter carefully follows economic and financial trends, legal affairs, and serves as the Gormogons’ financial and legal advisor. He successfully defended us against a lawsuit from a liquor distributor worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid deliveries of bootleg shandies.
The Geep has an IQ so high it is untestable and attempts to measure it have resulted in dangerously unstable results as well as injuries to researchers. Coincidentally, he publishes intelligence tests as a side gig.
His sarcasm is so highly developed it borders on the psychic, and he is often able to insult a person even before meeting them. ’Puter enjoys hunting small game with 000 slugs and punt guns, correcting homilies in real time at Mass, and undermining unions. ’Puter likes to wear a hockey mask and carry an axe into public campgrounds, where he bursts into people’s tents and screams. As you might expect, he has been shot several times but remains completely undeterred.
He assures us that his obsessive fawning over news stories involving women teachers sleeping with young students is not Freudian in any way, although he admits something similar once happened to him. Uniquely, ’Puter is unable to speak, read, or write Russian, but he is able to sing it fluently.
Geep joined the order in the mid-1980s. He arrived at the Castle door with dozens of steamer trunks and an inarticulate hissing creature of astonishingly low intelligence he calls “Sleestak.” Ghettoputer appears to make his wishes known to Sleestak, although no one is sure whether this is the result of complex sign language, expert body posture reading, or simply beating Sleestak with a rubber mallet.
‘Puter suggests the Czar suck it.
