Of Reid, Jobs & Unicorns

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) - Socialist, Racist, TraitorI’m well aware that the head of America’s domestic enemies in the Senate, Harry Reid is not fond of the truth. I’m equally well aware of the more pleasant fact that he has little more skill in lying than he does in most other things.

Still, upon occasion, his stupidity – though not his mendacity – is shocking. Such is the case in his recent comparison of job creators with unicorns.

It beggars the mind to expect Americans to take Reid seriously – except as a clear and present danger to America – when he jabbers such inanities that are so easy to refute and debunk.

Millionaire job creators are like unicorns. They’re impossible to find, and they don’t exist.

Only a tiny fraction of people making more than a million dollars, probably less than 1%, are small business owners. And only a tiny fraction of that tiny fraction are traditional job creators.

Most of these businesses are hedge fund managers or wealthy lawyers. They don’t do much hiring and they don’t need tax breaks.

The pathetic Leftists of NPR, ever eager collaborators with any and all of America’s enemies, was quick to attempt to support Reid’s stupidity.

We wanted to talk to business owners who would be affected. So, NPR requested help from numerous Republican congressional offices, including House and Senate leadership. They were unable to produce a single millionaire job creator for us to interview.

So we went to the business groups that have been lobbying against the surtax. Again, three days after putting in a request, none of them was able to find someone for us to talk to.

Of course Americans can expect nothing else from NPR; they’re devoted to being a 5th Column and to the destruction of America.

Really! Creatures like those controlling NPR were some of the few valid reasons for the original provisions in Section 1021 & 1022 of NDAA 2012.

It’s not surprising at all that NPR couldn’t find an American who talk to them, especially an American who is part of the demographic currently targeted for harm by the Liberals. Americans, after all, do not make a habit of speaking with the enemy. And it’s equally unsurprising that NPR would spin such a refusal to speak to them into “supporting evidence” for Reid’s spurious an specious attack.

Golden UnicornIt did not, however, take long for Americans to refute and debunk Reid and NPR. All it took was for a contributor to Forbes, Paul Roderick Gregory, to make a few simple inquiries with the IRS and then to put thing together.

What Professor Gregory discovered is that are, in fact, unicorns prancing around – or, at least, millionaire job creators. 😉

This is simply because it’s delusional to believe that the 236,765 millionaire or above taxpayers, who earn an aggregate taxable income of $623 billion per annum are overwhelmingly hedge fund managers or wealthy lawyers and that they provide few, if any, jobs for their fellow Americans.

 I do not know what Harry means when he says “a tiny fraction of a tiny fraction.” If we let 5 percent represent Harry’s “tiny fraction,” we are left with 118 businesses owners who earn a million or more and create jobs. Yes, they are only slightly less rare than unicorns, if Harry is to be believed.

Is it even in the same timezone as logical to believe that only 118 out 236,765 millionaires create jobs? Even doubling it to 10% – tiny is, after all, relative – would only give us 236.

You’d really think that the Senator from Nevada would know not to draw to an inside straight or, at least, how to bluff. Then again, he probably trusts the lamestream media, like NPR, to either actively support his lies or stay quiet about them.

Much Is Explained

Juan WilliamsNPR’s termination of Juan Williams struck me as a little odd. That is not to say that I was shocked that they fired Williams but that I was surprised by the quickness of it and the vileness of the public remarks by NPR’s CEO, Vivian Schiller. That behavior just doesn’t match what one would expect in the media where all, or most, is public and employment is regulated through a variety of involute contracts and union rules.

Much was explained when I found out that the front-group for the Muslim Brotherhood and its subsidiaries, Al-Qaeda and Hamas, CAIR had pressured NPR to make an example of Williams.

From PR Newswire:

WASHINGTON, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — A prominent national Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization today called on National Public Radio (NPR) to address analyst Juan Williams’ statement that airline passengers in “Muslim garb” make him “nervous.” (Williams is a news analyst for both NPR and Fox News.)

The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) said that during an appearance Monday on Fox’s “O’Reilly Factor,” Williams backed Bill O’Reilly’s recent claim that “Muslims killed us on 9/11” and then said: “[W]hen 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.”

“NPR should address the fact that one of its news analysts seems to believe that all airline passengers who are perceived to be Muslim can legitimately be viewed as security threats,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “Such irresponsible and inflammatory comments would not be tolerated if they targeted any other racial, ethnic or religious minority, and they should not pass without action by NPR.”

He noted that media commentators who launch rhetorical attacks on Islam and Muslims normally do not suffer the professional consequences of those who similarly target other racial, ethnic or religious groups.

And NPR, ever the hand-wringing, dhimmi Liberals – and probably afraid of either CAIR’s attorneys or their jihadis – responded in an “appropriately” subservient fashion by firing Juan Williams. It’s a typically cowardly but not illogical response to threats from Islamists such as CAIR.

So it looks like NPR’s greatest sins were weakness and cowardice as opposed to actively siding against Americans in our war against Muslim terrorism and that Juan Williams was just another victim of CAIR’s paper terrorism and implied threats of direct violent action against Islam’s foes.

Schiller and NPR should still be castigated and punished for their failure, but a certain level of mercy should shown shown them by Americans. Not everyone can be strong when faced by the sort of threats that Islamist terrorist groups can bring to bear, especially those like CAIR who have access to the means to wage “White Collar Jihad” and can arrange for the rape, murder, and mutilation of their enemies and/or their enemies’ spouses and children.

The Irony Of Williams

Juan WilliamsThe Emmy Award winning Liberal pundit and political commentator Juan Williams has recently run afoul of the ideologically based de facto censorship practiced by the Left-Wing radio outlet, National Public Radio (NPR).

The Soros-backed, quasi-Socialist NPR ousted Williams, not over anything he said on one of their productions, but over his honest commentary while being interviewed by Fox’s Bill O’Reilly.

NPR announced Wednesday night, October 20, 2010 that they were firing Williams for his comments, adding they were “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.”

Political correctness can lead to some kind of paralysis where you don’t address reality. I mean, look Bill, I’m not a bigot, you know the kind of books I’ve written on the civil rights movement in this country, but when I get on a 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.

Now, I remember also that when the Times Square bomber was at court, I think this was just last week. He said the war with Muslims, America’s war is just beginning, first drop of blood. I don’t think there’s any way to get away from these facts. But I think there are people who want to somehow remind us all as President Bush did after 9/11, it’s not a war against Islam.

NPR’s CEO Vivian Schiller added that NPR reporters and analysts should not be expressing controversial viewpoints, and that Williams’ views on Muslims should be “between him and his psychiatrist or his publicist.”

Schiller is obviously a typical piece of Liberal filth. She believes that caution when dealing with people who visibly identify as or with inimical groups or ideologies must stem from psychosis or greed.

She was in a bad spot though; Williams is a Panamanian-born “Blatino” and, therefor Schiller couldn’t call him a racist as she would would have likely done were he a White, and she couldn’t very well call him ignorant given his decades of experience, background, and previous usefulness to NPR. Hence, she had to fall back on mental illness or venality.

There’s, however, more than a little irony in this situation and in Juan Williams’ comments. Williams very much identifies as Black and has a long history of chronicling the American Civil Rights movement, having written seven books on the subject between 1988 and 2007 and has been referenced and/or cited in many others. He’s probably had some amount of direct experience and great deal of vicarious experience with people’s fear and/or concern when seeing Blacks who identify “first and foremost” as something other than American.

When We See Them We Get worried. We Get Nervous

I have to wonder if Williams sees the similarities between Whites’ honest concerns over Blacks who dress and comport themselves in an exilic and/or negative manner and his own honest concern over Muslims who do the same. I wonder if he acknowledges the resulting irony of his statement. I’d like to think that he does.
