Rex Murphy on the Juan Williams NPR Fiasco

Rex Murphy has just written an excellent piece on the firing of Juan Williams from NPR.

What he wrote got me thinking: What would the reaction in Leftist circles be if a Death Fatwa were declared on Mr. Williams?  I think the answer is pretty clear: There would be no outrage whatsoever and many might privately, or even publicly, espouse, "Well, he deserved it."

I obviously wish nothing of the sort on Juan Williams or anyone else for that matter but if it were to occur, historical evidence suggests that my analysis is spot on.  That saddens me, more than a little.
