Don’t have much time, so will update this post later with more discussion, but these 3 items together have a common theme. Comments encouraged.

Nobody got the theme or even said much about the articles directly. The point I was trying to make is that all 3 articles are about the irrational impulse to deal with the unpleasantness of the dangers presented by Muslims by suppressing discussion of the dangers. NPR fired Juan Williams because he threatened to burst the bubble its listeners live in (even though he was speaking on the Fox network when he said what he was fired for). Wilders could not be tolerated and had to be illegally judicially persecuted because again a judgment was made that his society could not handle the truth he spoke (or else that it could and this was undesirable because the destructive Islamization of Dutch society was actually intended). And the wars in Pakistan and Afghanistan indicate that Muslims continue to want to kill us and we have not found effective ways to deal with that other than killing them (killing them is fine with me, by the way, but is unthinkable to the media-Democrat axis because it would mean admitting several things that contradict their most cherished tenets).
