Is this retaliation for Williams guest appearances on Fox News only days after financier George Soros donated $1.8 Million to NPR (National Public Radio) which also receives government subsidies.

In the wake of NPR’s firing of contributor Juan Williams over comments about Muslims, Mike Huckabee is calling on the next Congress to cut the radio network’s funding when it convenes next year. “NPR has discredited itself as a forum for free speech and a protection of the First Amendment rights of all and has solidified itself as the purveyor of politically correct pabulum and protector of views that lean left,” Huckabee said in a statement provided to CNN.

Williams told Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Monday that he gets “worried” and “nervous” on flights when he sees people wearing “Muslim garb.” NPR terminated Williams’ contract on Wednesday evening. Huckabee said he “will no longer accept interview requests from NPR as long as they are going to practice a form of censorship, and since NPR is funded with public funds, it is a form of censorship.
