Defund NPR

It's not often I agree with Mike Huckabee:

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.

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."
Cries of censorship come anytime somebody is denied their time on the soapbox. Most of the time it's bullshit, but ol' Huck has a point. The government can't engage in censorship, therefore, it should deny funding to NPR.

We should have done this years, no decades ago. Along with it many other usless government programs that is used by the Progressives to indoctrinate our kids.

Here, it's the only station that plays classical music on a regular basis. I'd miss that, I guess.
