The Far Left National Public Radio eats one of their own...Juan Williams is toast at NPR
After the "incident" following the Junior High football game on Tuesday, and my follow up reports, things moved quickly on Wednesday morning, before I headed to Marion and Columbus. The Athletic Director of the visiting school, the Varsity Head Coach, and the Freshman Coach/Fan all quickly e-mailed with apologies for the same coach/fan and his actions following the game. Were they heartfelt and sincere? I don't know, they may have been just to divert any further action, and have the state association not get involved. Either way, I accepted them, and assured all that I hold no grudge...and I don't. However, that doesn't take away from the facts of the matter that this kind of incident should not have happened, especially given the fact that the perpetrator fan is a coach at the school. As luck would have it, I have a game at the same location with his Freshman team next Monday, my final scheduled game of the year. I will be there to officiate, whether he will be there to coach, is not known...and frankly, not of concern to me. The schools have to make that call, I will do what I always do, try to officiate the game in a fair and firm manner....do I always succeed? Of course not...but I try.
The only thing I can add to this sorry episode is that, if this had been 15 or 20 years ago, things probably would not have ended as well as they did. I have learned much over the years, and one of them is to think about actions and reactions before I make them...always be prepared for what might happen, but keep your wits. I believe I followed my own advice, and things appear to have worked out for the best. I still hate the fact that if one or two of my fellow officials had been young guys, how would they have reacted? Would they think to themselves..."Is this worth all this"? But with three veteran "Old Guys", the incident ended without the law or fist-a-cuffs being needed.
No Varsity game for me tonight, although Sam has one this week and another next Friday in the Columbus area...good experience for him to get 3 Varsity assignments this season....I'm sure he will be ready for whatever future Varsity assignments he may get....he's already a veteran Varsity Baseball Umpire, and this will had to his officiating resume down the road. I finish up my football work this weekend, with a JV game at Waynesville on Saturday, a tournament youth double header in Celina(with Sam) on Sunday, and the aforementioned Monday game to finish it off. Fishing in Michigan, then the annual Wisconsin trip in early November come before I put on the basketball duds in the days before and following Thanksgiving.
Time to unfund NPR and let the Marxist scum and universities that support this trash, pay all it's bills. I never donate to Public Radio or TV, except the few bucks that my taxes contribute. And that's a few bucks too much. It's garbage, time to take out the trash.
As for Williams...not to shed a tear, he just got a nice contract from Fox, and that means he will continue to be the "balance": that Fox News claims...I just think it is great that Williams, a well spoken lefty, now has his most ardent support coming from the right...justice is sweet indeed.
As far as his comments about being rather nervous with Muslims getting on planes in goat herder clothes...I'm with him, they need to dress like human beings, goat herding never was big in the US......and soap and water will do wonders, if they are looking to be liked.
Enjoy the weekend, there won't be many good weather weekends left before winter sets in....back later>>>>
Photos-Juan Williams, now just of Fox News, sans NPR...the football season for me finishes off come Monday, and National Public Radio and their perceived "cure" for wayward Liberal Journalists who don't toe the "Marxism Is Us" line.....
