Has there ever been a clearer instance of political correctness than NPR firing Juan Williams for his statement that seeing people in Muslim garb on his airplane causes him anxiety? This is, of course, a near universal reaction among flyers, and understandably so.
Williams didn't say that all Muslims are terrorists, nor did he say that Muslims ought not be allowed to fly. He merely gave voice to personal feelings which almost all of us have experienced.
And how ironic that the victim of this political correctness would be a liberal black man, especially Williams, who never emits anything but nice guy vibes.
But at least there was a huge public outcry against these thought police. Maybe there's a tiny ray of hope for the cause of honesty after all.
