Anti-American, anti-Semitic NPR fundraising executives punked *UPDATED*

I’m actually grateful to NPR.  It was its unbelievably biased Israel coverage that helped me make the break with my reflexive liberalism and take a long, hard look at my political beliefs and party affiliation.  Nevertheless, it irks me no end that my taxpayer money funds NPR, PBS and local affiliates.  There is no reason in this day and age to have government media, especially government media that is hostile to more than half the American population and wants to roll around naked in bed with the Muslim Brotherhood.

If you don’t believe me about NPR’s beliefs and desires, you must read this Daily Caller article and take the 11 minutes to watch the video that is a part of the article.  It’s disgusting but it’s also wonderful, because it shines sunlight in an area the Progressives have tried to keep shady.  Considering that the NPR executive who got punked said it would be best for NPR to lose its federal funding, my response is, let’s give the guy what he wants.

UPDATE:  I like NPR’s defense which amounts to this:  since we didn’t immediately accept their phony bribe, we’re “appalled” by Schiller’s comments, and Schiller got another job, get off our back.

“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.”

It doesn’t seem to occur to the NPR folks that the video shows Schiller desperate to get a steady stream of income from a Muslim Brotherhood organization that wants to give a platform to Hamas and Hezbollah, two terrorist groups.

    The Left has been up to many devious and evil things in America for the last few decades. If people are wondering who to blame, there’s your target. But, of course, who people blame are the scapegoats. Bush or Republicans.


    NPR- National Public Rubes. In the linked video, Vivien Schiller defends the indefensible.  Yeah, they’re appalled – appalled if they caught, appalled if you go off script (Juan Williams) and yet…no so appalled taking a ride to lunch in a limo and nodding in agreement with the ‘actors’. Time to change the logo to SAG (Screen Actors Guild) – they’re all actors and bad ones at that.

    “By their fruits ye shall know them.” Or, as a less loving prophet, Malcolm X, once said, “The chickens are coming home to roost.”

    It amazes me that when the left’s powerful intellects should be stepping up to the plate, offering eloquent, persausive rationales for their Grand Vision, and orchestrating exquisitely clever, sophisticated conspiracies to bring down the right, the best they can do is idiocy like Schiller’s.

    Dorothy Gale (played by Sarah Palin): “Take that, be-otch!”

    Wicked Witch of the West (played by the left): “Ohhh! You cursed brat! Look what you’ve done! I’m melting! Melting!”

    All punking and Right/Left bluster aside, you missed why laughing boy Schiller is leaving. He basically admitted on camera that NPR is not only not really for the public, but that they do not require nor really want public funding:

    It’s a free country. You’re free to be a horses’ bee-hind, or bobble head to Muslims for money. But just because you’re free to do any of these things, doesn’t mean you’re entitled to a place at the public trough.

    Had this NPR funding argument with a Liberal friend a month ago. She claimed NPR wouldn’t survive without public money and I pointed her to NPR’s own financial statements clearly showing that gov’t funding had decreased from 16% ten years ago, to 8% in 2008, to only 2% this year. And in that time, NPR and PBS have gotten along just fine. I even showed the PBS report that Big Bird earns more money than the President of the United States.

    Not happy, but end of argument.

    C’mon!!!  They just have a different definition of “This is a free country” than you do…


    NPR has a delusional and different definition from ‘free’ to ‘country’ than a lot of us.

    NPr is basically Pravda.

    Defund, defund, defund. NPR has a specific corporate culture, as do both MSNBC and CNN and Fox News. Take your pick as a consumer.  But none except NPR are allocated the taxpayer dime.  The government should get out of the broadcast business. NPR can take their hallowed ‘Public’ imprimatur and shove it.  They do not represent the American public, only a very insulated and obtuse segment thereof.  Contemporary liberals and progressives, however their nomenclature, remind me of the old joke about Catholics in heaven: they exist in squalor but are convinced they are the only ones up there.
