James O'Keefe, the same video blogger who busted ACORN with the child prostitute smuggling sting is at it again. This time, members of his group, Project Veritas, posed as Muslim Americans advocating Shariah Law and met with executives of National Public Radio at a Washington restaurant to discuss a possible contribution to NPR.
What transpired was a moment when the curtain was pulled away and we see and hear what liberals in the media, and particularly the government supported media, really think about the American citizens who pay their salary:
The entire two hour video is here.
Some choice excerpts by way of the Daily Caller and Washington Times (1, 2,3).
Schiller on Republicans and the Tea Parties: White, Racist, Evangelical, Islamaphobic, Gun Toting
“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,”Just one question: How many black faces are their in the boardroom at NPR who aren't fetching coffee? Answer? NOT ONE! And yet Republicans and Tea Partiers are racist?
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.”
NPR and Universities Not Liberal, Just Intellectual
"I really don't think it's [NPR] a liberal organization. I don't believe it's a conservative organization or a liberal organization. One other thing you can look at is how universities are regarded by a Democratic Congress versus a Republican Congress."So why do so many fair, balanced and tolerant intellectual professors refuse to hire conservatives to teach?
"It's the same thing. It's much more about anti-intellectualism than it is about political, as a university is also by definition considered in this country to be liberal even though it's not at all. It's liberal, because it's intellectual...a pursuit of knowledge. That is traditionally something the Democrats have funded and Republicans have not. So NPR traditionally gets sort of lumped in."
All Scientists Agree on Global Warming?
"The main point here is that it is not our responsibility to present the opinion of a non-scientist through our science desk. All educated scientists accept that climate change as fact."
Of course EVERYONE accepts climate change as a fact. The earth is constantly getting warmer and colder but we know Schiller intended to suggest is that no credible scientist would dispute the theory that man is to blame. That will be news to Dr. Roy Spencer, former Senior Scientist for Climate Studies at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, winner of NASA's Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal for global temperature monitoring work.
NPR Better Off Without Federal Money?
“Well frankly, it is clear that we would be better off in the long-run without federal funding. “NPR would definitely survive and most of the stations would survive.”Schiller's atittudes are pervasive at places like NPR. Do we really need to be insulted by hyper-snobbish liberal elitists who get rich living off the taxpayers? Why don't we just help out NPR and give them their freedom?
