New Rules Of Engagement – Megyn Kelly & Ibrahim Hopper re NPR Firing of Juan Williams

Political correctness is false speaking.

Juan Williams, a 10-year professional with National Public Radio, said in a dialogue on Fox Television, “When I get on a plane, if I see people in Muslim garb, I get nervous.” The Council on American-Islamic Relations wrote NPR demanding they “take action.” NPR fired Juan Williams. This has aroused furor on both sides of US political lines.

  • Does public dialogue mean shutting the other person down for speaking honestly?
  • Is it fair to feel singled out because of the way you dress?
  • Does firing people do advocacy organization constituents any good?

This debate raises timely issues. Political correctness is false speaking. It drips with emptiness. We need rules of engagement to speak straight and listen straight, demonstrated by Megyn and Ibrahim in this very public dialogue.
