Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

Your tax dollars at work. National Public Radio is a far left, taxpayer-funded media propaganda enterprise that has actually fired one of its biggest advocates for actually speaking his mind and being honest. Juan Williams is a regular contributor to the Fox News Channel whose leftwing views often lead to uncontrollable eye-rolling on the part of those watching and listening but he's one of the more likable libs if nothing else.

What on earth did he say that NPR so objected to? Muslims on a plane make him nervous. Via the New York Times:
The move came after Mr. Williams, who is also a Fox News political analyst, appeared on the “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday. On the show, the host, Bill O’Reilly, asked him to respond to the notion that the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.” Mr. O’Reilly said, “The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet.”

Mr. Williams said he concurred with Mr. O’Reilly.

He continued: “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.”
This is what happens when taxpayer dollars fund media enterprises - or practically anything else for that matter. That enterprise goes completely off the tracks. Being honest gets you fired at NPR. Let's not forget another NPR / Fox News Contributor, Mara Liasson, who in late 2009 was reigned in by NPR who was 'concerned' about her appearances on the Fox News Channel.

Potential upside? Now that Juan is no longer on the government dole, perhaps he'll see what's wrong with socialism. Stay tuned.

Via The Blaze, here is the video of the comments that got Juan in trouble. Go figure, the one time I agree with Williams and NPR fires him.
