That old line about “be careful what you wish for…” gets validated once again. Yesterday NPR Chief Executive Vivian Schiller defended taxpayer funding for public broadcasting Monday and challenged critics to find any evidence of liberal bias in NPR’s coverage. Today, undercover video reporter, James O’ Keefe answered the challenge, big time!
Associates of O’ Keefe masqueraded as wealthy members of the Muslim Brotherhood who were interested in donating money to NPR. At a lunch with NPR Executive Ron Schiller, the fake Muslims caught Schiller on camera trashing Conservatives, the Tea Party, the GOP and Jews (video embedded below)
The Video released by the Daily Caller shows the executive saying things such as
“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.
It is? Holy Cow, I guess me and those other Jewish Tea Partiers are in the the wrong place:
The Republican Party, Schiller says, has been “hijacked by this group.” The man posing as Malik [the fake Muslim] 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.”
Nothing that looks like left wing bias here, right? On the bright side its not that they think conservative positions are wrong, they just believe that conservatives are idiots.
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.
At least Schiller understands what is going on in the world. During the lunch, the other fake Muslim told Schiller.
“Our organization was originally founded by a few members of the Muslim Brotherhood in America actually,” he says.
Schiller doesn’t blink. Instead, he assumes the role of fan. “I think what we all believe is if we don’t have Muslim voices in our schools, on the air,” Schiller says, “it’s the same thing we faced as a nation when we didn’t have female voices.”
Then the phony Muslim got into the Jooose controlling the Media.
When the ersatz Islamists declare they’re “not too upset about maybe a little bit less Jew influence of money into NPR,” Schiller responds by saying he doesn’t find “Zionist or pro-Israel” ideas at NPR, “even among funders. I mean it’s there in those who own newspapers, obviously, but no one owns NPR.”
This is just a taste: Watch the video below:
Believe it or not NPR is covering the story here is their most recent update
Schiller (no relation to NPR CEO Vivian Schiller), announced last week that he is leaving NPR to become director of the Aspen Institute Arts Program. In his position at NPR, Schiller was not involved in editorial decisions.
Dana Davis Rehm, NPR’s senior vice president of marketing, communications and external relations, has released this statement:
“The fraudulent organization represented in this video repeatedly pressed us to accept a $5 million check, with no strings attached, which we repeatedly refused to accept.
“We are appalled by the comments made by Ron Schiller in the video, which are contrary to what NPR stands for.
“Mr. Schiller announced last week that he is leaving NPR for another job.”
Our colleague David Folkenflik is pursuing comments from Schiller, O’Keefe and other parties to the story. We will be updating as the story develops.
