 Back in October, we posted the following piece demonstrating the difficulties a moderate, African-American liberal faced by not toeing the party talking points and being an independent thinker.  This week, Juan Williams was back in the news, after being fired by NPR following comments that NPR felt did not meet their editorial standards.  The comment made by Juan Williams explained how he felt when he gets on a plane and sees Muslims passengers in traditional garb. Juan said, “I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. 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.” 

What the liberal media and many seem to be editing out, is that this was his opening to his main point that it does not make him feel good, and we need to be careful to not let our own fears violate anyone’s constitution rights.  Juan responded to his firing on FoxNews.com with an excellent opinion piece that should be read.  NPR firing Juan has nothing to do with his comments, but from a witch hunt attack on him for having independent thought and not adhering to their liberal point of view.  NPR CEO Vivian Schiller made that clear with her cheap shot yesterday that Juan should have kept his comments “between him and his psychiatrist”.  If it was a private company I would say NPR has any right to fire anyone that would feel didn’t meet their “standards”.  But NPR is a publicly funded entity – relying on our tax dollars (or from healthy donations from liberal idealogues) – and if they are going to choose to stand for a political position, they should be defunded and supported privately.  Juan will certainly land on his feet and I appreciate his thoughtful differing opinion on many issues.  The public should support his honest debate. If NPR does not agree with difference in opinion, the public should not support theirs. (more…)

Transforming America

With 53% of the vote, the elections of 2008 were sold to the American people under the simple yet powerful notion of CHANGE.  They had just put into office the nation’s first black President, along with deeper Democratic majorities in the House and the Senate.  The new President and his Democratic leadership read this resounding victory as a mandate for sweeping change, outlining a far-reaching agenda to fundamentally transform not just the direction of the country, but our essential economic and socio-cultural framework.

In the past two years we have seen a determined White House and overwhelming majorities in Congress chart that new course for our country.  Unfortunately in our 24 hour new cycle, many developments simply get lost in the shuffle.  So with the 2010 mid-term elections fast approaching, ThreeConservativeBros decided to compile a list of significant events that have occurred in the past 24 months.   We determined these fifty stories were the most important for people to remember before going into the ballot box this November 2nd.  Here they are in no specific order.
