Welcome to the land of lost common sense and PC lolipops abound.
Juan Williams, a well-known political pundit and author, was fired by National Public Radio late Wednesday after he said on Fox News that he was often nervous when boarding a plane with people who are dressed in "Muslim garb," according to The New York Times. NPR said in a statement it had given Williams notice of his termination Wednesday night.
Williams, who is also a Fox News political analyst, appeared on the “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday. The show’s host, Bill O’Reilly, asked him whether the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.”
“The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet,” O’Reilly said.
Williams then said he agreed with O’Reilly.

But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”
Many, many people would get nervous and that is their well-founded right to do so and really no one else's business.
People who have a problem with it are stupid.
