More Dem Dirty Tricks — The Juan Williams Affair
Elizabeth Scalia has links to all the relevant commentary here.
My opinion for what it’s worth — the NPR position is despicable, the Soros contribution is suspicious, but none of it is important enough to merit the attention it is getting. The whole imbroglio is a distraction and a trap. The obvious purpose of the NPR action was to goad the punditry into issuing calls for de-funding [thanks, Sarah], which can be used to gin up support among the NPR listening base and get them to open their wallets. And, while pundits are railing against NPR, they are not attacking the real villains — the Democrat leadership.
Yes the Williams affair is disgusting and offensive, but it’s not very important. If conservatives are to triumph they have to keep their eyes on the ball. The only winners in this mess are Juan [who has a nice new contract], NPR which will see a flood of contributions, and the Democrats [who get an issue to talk about and a distraction from the real issues].
Don’t let them get away with it. Channel your indignation into something positive like upping your support for the conservative candidates of your choice.
