Juan Williams and America Have a Great Day!
Wow! What a fantastic day for Juan Williams. Today Juan Williams should have been out Celebrating the fact that he was fired by a company (NPR) whose agenda is to take down our Constitutional right to “Freedom of Speech”.
How unbelievable it is that just a few words, said at the right time and in the right place, can change one’s entire life almost immediately. In Juan’s case, I’ll bet my last dollar that he never imagined that returning a phone call, would be the one time that his whole world would come tumbling down and that there was nothing he could do about it.
Yet, within 24 hours of the news going public about his being fired from his job, he went most probably from being shocked, sick to his stomach because he was unemployed suddenly, without any inkling of what he would or could do next, to being the biggest story on TV.
What a rush it would be to find out that what happens to you is so important to so many strangers and well wishers. Damn, how lucky can one man be?
Juan should feel ecstatic that Americans; White, Black, Republican and Democrat alike, have, in mass, whether they agree with his Political views or not, taken his side, and in a Big Way, I might add, to defend his right to express his own opinion.
This is the first time since Obama has taken office that there has been so many people from both sides of the isle who have agreed on anything without being threatened, bribed or worried about taking a stand on something, for fear that they would not be re-elected.
America has its good days and it’s bad days. Today was a really good day, not just for Juan, but for America also. Finally, Americans found something all could agree on; they still believe in “Freedom of Speech”. ss
