BUSTED: Defund NPR And Defund Them NOW!

James O'Keefe has done it again! Absolutely disgusting and a total betrayal of American values:
A man who appears to be a National Public Radio senior executive, Ron Schiller, has been captured on camera savaging conservatives and the Tea Party movement.

“The current Republican Party, particularly the Tea Party, is fanatically involved in people’s personal lives and very fundamental Christian – I wouldn’t even call it Christian. It’s this weird evangelical kind of move,” declared Schiller, who runs NPR’s foundation.

In a new video released Tuesday morning by conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe, Schiller and Betsy Liley, NPR’s director of institutional giving, are seen meeting with two men who, unbeknownst to the NPR executives, are posing as members of a Muslim Brotherhood front group. The men, who identified themselves as Ibrahim Kasaam and Amir Malik from the fictitious Muslim Education Action Center (MEAC) Trust, met with Schiller and Liley at Café Milano, a well-known Georgetown restaurant, and explained their desire to give to $5 million to NPR because, “the Zionist coverage is quite substantial elsewhere.”

On the tapes, Schiller wastes little time before attacking conservatives. The Republican Party, Schiller says, has been “hijacked by this group.” The man posing as Malik finishes the sentence by adding, “the radical, racist, Islamaphobic, Tea Party people.” Schiller agrees and intensifies the criticism, saying that the Tea Party people aren’t “just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic, I mean basically they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-America gun-toting. I mean, it’s scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people.”

Schiller goes on to describe liberals as more intelligent and informed than conservatives. “In my personal opinion, liberals today might be more educated, fair and balanced than conservatives,” he said.
Fine, but we've still got a question:

If liberals are so friggin' smart and sophisticated, why do they keep getting caught saying and doing such stupid and repulsive things?

UPDATE: Here's the word from Hot Air:
Forget the issue of funding for just a moment.  The two Schillers at the top of NPR apparently can’t tell the truth even if it tasted like filet mignon.  Dependence is independence, the Joooooos run the newspapers, and conservatives are all racists in their world.  Why would anyone rely on news from an organization run by these two Orwellian creatures?
That's always been the question, and anyone currently listening to NPR but can't hear that message - or thinks the rest of us can't - needs some serious mental help.


  1. just put your comment about sarah palin and the stalker in my favorite comments folder. lol very good.

    npr should have no taxpayer funding. if the demonrats want this on the air, then let them support it. also, the public radio station.

    if i had all the money that i was taxed for, i would be rich beyond my wildest imagination.so would everyone else.

  2. You're against people speaking their opinions in what is ostensibly a private meeting? Why exactly?

  3. It's totally unbelievable how polarized our people have become! When was the last time a President apealed to voters to come out in order to defeat their "ENEMIES"! We're ALL Americans. One Nation & Indivisible - except we've been so busy dividing ourselves. There are good people on the left, in the center and on the right. There are not so good people on the left, in the center and on the right. Just as many in all buckets. So stop labeling fellow countrymen as "ENEMIES", lose the paranoia and extremism. NO ONE wins.

  4. Crack--

    I know it's irrelevant to the rage meme, but this guy had nothing to do w/ on-the-air content. And there's nothing about his views that can't be validated by facts and verified by evidence.

    Still, they're his views and he's entitled to them ... or he would be in an America that was operating under the Constitution and the philosophies that drive it, rather than the philosophies that drive it into the ground.

    America is a pluralistic society -- it was created that way and it has been ever since -- so his OPINION, that the Teabaggers are xenophobic (need citations?) and that the airwaves should have everyone's voices, even Muslim ones, are reflective of inherently American values of inclusion and the desire for ever-expanding the benefits of democracy.

    Conflating this ambush of Shiller with Juan Williams' self-destructive confusion over his role as an fact-based analyst for NPR and an opinion-based commentator for Fox -- as is the standard operating procedure of the RW screech lizards -- is not only intellectually dishonest but really besides the point -- point being that O'Keefe is not a journalist but has the morals of a vandal and the partisan agenda of a terrorist.

  5. O'Keefe is not a journalist but has the morals of a vandal and the partisan agenda of a terrorist.

    Yes, yes - he's Saul Alinsky with a camera - I know:

    Bringing Alinsky's "Rules For Radicals" to the attention of the American Right is probably Barack Obama's greatest accomplishment.

    Wait - aren't you a "radical"? And you don't approve? What's the world coming to?

  6. O'Keefe is not a journalist but has the morals of a vandal and the partisan agenda of a terrorist.

    And proof of my point is from Glenn Beck's website

  7. Oh, don't play that game - what's next? A post from the NAACP?

    Look, I didn't disagree with your portrayal, I applauded it. I think it's time conservatives play by the same rules liberals have - which is what O'Keefe and Brietbart and others are doing - those are "prankster" Alinsky rules.

    This isn't journalism - it's dirty and underhanded - which is how the other side has been playing it forever.

    Alinsky admitted it.
