Me on Juan

I have a piece up in City Journal on NPR’s firing of Juan Williams:

Here’s some news for the folks at National Public Radio. Everybody’s nervous about Muslims on planes. Why? Because Muslims blow stuff up. Not all Muslims, of course. Not even a large percentage of Muslims. But enough Muslims all over the world to make any reasonable person take note. Even the large majority of peaceful Muslims must look at one another in airport lines and think, “By Allah, I hope he’s not one of those crazy men who blow stuff up.” It’s unpleasant. We’d all prefer it were different. But the world is as it is, not as we might wish it to be.

Read the whole thing here.

    So desperate are leftists to deny that their multicultural paradigm collapsed with the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, they are embracing a panicky and dishonest category error: they are determined to treat Islam as if it were a race rather than a system of ideas. To hate a person for his race is despicable because it denies him his humanity. To reject a system of ideas, however, is well within the prerogatives of decency. One may “unfriend” Communists, say, or Nazis, without in any way being disrespectful to Cubans or Germans. Ideas matter, and some are right and some are wrong.

    Wow Andrew, another winner.

    Please do expose the silliness of PC where ever you find it. This Cuban woman who loves freedom greatly appreciates it.
