First, the video:

I mean, wow. Can you imagine O'Reilly or Hannity or Rush, after the Beltway Sniper's were caught would have said, "I'm glad the shooters were black" and expressed "white relief"? But that's one aspect of her little rant. To use the word "gringo"? Gringo means foreigner, for starters. But it's also used as a term of contempt by Latinos about white people. Now, remember, NPR is partially paid for by our tax dollars. Not to mention that Juan Williams was fired for saying far, far less. However, no word from NPR if Ms. Hernandez will be reprimanded. Basically, once again, there are rules for whites, and an entirely different set of rules for minorities. The double standard is alive and well.

No, she shouldn't be fired for what she said.

She should be publicly humiliated.

If they can send Juan Williams packing for what he said. She should go for what could be seen as far more racial and insensitive comments.

Itís safe to say there was a collective sigh of brown relief when the Tucson killer turned out to be a gringo.

I have no doubt that there was this "brown relief". The funny thing about the "gringo" part is that according to "Ask A Mexican" , Mexicans don't call Anglos that word.

Gabacho: A gringo. But Mexicans don't call gringos gringos. Only gringos call gringos gringos. Mexicans call gringos "gabachos."

Yes they do. While both words are used alot, "gringo" is used more. "Guero" is also used commonly when referring to whites, though it is also used to describe light skinned, blonde Mexicans.

Definitions of gringo on the Web:

ēa Latin American (disparaging) term for foreigners (especially Americans and Englishmen)

Which means Ms. Hernandez is probably one of these La Raza type idiots who claim that we are the invaders or foreigners. Sometimes all you have to do is listen to hear.

Sad she's so hateful, she's pretty and she's got a cute voice.

You can't humiliate a celebrity. They don't grasp the concept of shame. The only thing that they understand is being fired.

Brown relief sounds like a diarhea cure.

As tasteless and ultimately bigoted as her comments are (and they are), she's small potatos. I want to see Olbermann and Krugman taken to task for their libelous smears of conservatives. Krugman is supposed to be an economist, but his columns appear to be the rants of an unhinged mind, and Olbermann is a sportscaster who lacks any insights into politics except for the occasional sound byte that he picks up from his fellow talking heads at the MSNBC water cooler. But, if we're going for outright lies and hate, it's hard to top the Washington Post's Jeff Danziger:

You forgot to mention Cohen who, on television, called a former governor stupid. But what doesn't make Ms. Hernandez small potatoes is that she is given a forum on a tax funded media outlet. The excuse for firing Williams was because his comments were "inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR." So, I take it a commentator saying she was glad the shooter turned out to be white is consistent with their editorial standards? And it's not like she said this on MSNBC or some other outlet. She said this on the same network she is employed by. By NPR not commenting at all speaks volumes and exemplifies why they need to be defended by the federal government yesterday. They are clearly a left wing media outlet with double standard as a policy. I found Hernandez's comments extremely bigoted which is the stone cold truth. As I said, imagine had Hannity or Rush had "breathed a sigh of white relief" upon finding out the Beltway shooters were black. It would take decades for conservative talk radio to wipe that off the map. As for Hernandez herself, she is a typical leftist minority: race first, all others a distant 2nd.

That's not so much a reason to fire Hernandez as it is a reason to defund NPR. Firing her would be like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic, except that instead of trying to correct the course, what really needs to happen is that the ship must be scuttled and go down with all hands.

What I think should be asked is how these sorts of people got into NPR and the like. I would find it hard to believe that people like her were in NPR at it's outset.

Get out of your parents basement and come to someplace like Texas...they sure as hell do call us that. And worse when they don't think you know what they are saying. I KNOW more Mexicans that are my friends than you'll ever run across in your sheltered lifetime.

Further evidence of the media bias of NPR and why it should be federally defunded.

When Juan Williams was fired, a number of conservatives took a look at NPR's senior leadership. They run the gamut from left of center to left of left of center, all the way to the far left of anything remotely resembling sanity. They only hire people who think like they do, and then pride themselves on their commitment to "diversity."

Agreed. And that is something that a Republican House of Representatives can do. Of course, NPR and their enablers will howl, but when they do, just remind them that they claimed that they derive next to nothing from taxpayer dollars, and this will free them up to take even more money from Soros.

The thing I find funny is that the left screams for the Fairness Doctrine because of talk radio but they never say anything about NPR which is funny considering that it is federally funded and if there is a media outlet that should be bound by 'fair and balanced' programming, it's NPR. You know, National PUBLIC Radio. See, the other stations are privately owned. The FCC or the feds can no more make WSB in Atlanta provide progressive talk no more than they can make WYSP in Philadelphia play R&B music. The whole concept is laughable.

I've signed plenty of petitions (for what good it's worth) and written my congresscritters requesting that the NPR be defunded. Nary a peep back. Taxpayer funding for NPR is just as odious as if we had funded the now defunct Air America.

If whitey had said anything even close to this all Hell woulda broken loose.
