NPR Executives Gone Wild

NPR executives Ron Shiller and Betsy Liley have been caught on tape savaging conservatives and praising liberals.  Although this is not surprising to me, especially since NPR is a left-wing hack organization, I’m outraged that an elitist snobbish is still being propped up by taxpayers.  The Daily Caller‘s Matthew Boyle has more details:

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 up 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.

Mr. Shiller goes on to say that he’s proud of how NPR fired Juan Williams.  Ms. Liley doesn’t say much, mostly serving as Mr. Shiller’s side kick throughout the whole video.  Check out the rest of The DC’s article, including video.

    — fanatically involved in people’s personal lives —
    These people are so full of sh|t it’s not even funny. Every ounce of liberal legislation is based on ‘involvement in people’s personal lives’. Cigarettes, salt, trans fats, what light bulbs you use, what car you drive. They’d control every aspect of our lives for some greater good. Except that theirs isn’t religion-based (in their opinion), so it’s okay. And don’t tell me that ‘climate change’ isn’t a religion. I’ll always love Tucker Carlson for telling the lady ‘I hope your spaceship lands’.

  2. Tucker deserved some sort of award for that.

    If someone had suggested, back during the Johnson Administration, that government-funded healthcare was a foot-in-the-door towards having the government ‘suggest’ what you should and shouldn’t consume, you would have said they were crazy. It’s that constant progression that makes ‘conspiracies’ seem plausible.
