Skip to comments.NPR executives caught on tape bashing conservatives and Tea Party, touting liberals
Posted on 03/08/2011 5:56:36 AM PST by Rational Thought
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 peoples personal lives and very fundamental Christian I wouldnt even call it Christian. Its this weird evangelical kind of move, declared Schiller, who runs NPRs foundation.
In a new video released Tuesday morning by conservative filmmaker James OKeefe, Schiller and Betsy Liley, NPRs 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.

Duh. NPR is a koolaid drinker.
That imp, O’Keefe at it again I see..............
Just saw where The Blaze is also now reporting this;
I don’t even know why there’s a question about dumping support for these leftist looneys. I’m really getting tired of going through this year after year.
NPR is decidedly anti-Christian, anti-Semetic, and anti-American . . . what’s the question? Dump ‘em.
Most of the media is liberal biased , why should NPR be any different?The problem is that public funds are helping support them. This needs to be stopped.
This Schiller guy is a homo, too. Unhinged homos are very scary.
Just de-fund NPR and let a commercial enterprise do what they have failed to do. People said for a generation that without NPR there would be no ‘Educational Programming’ - ummm, how about Discovery, National Geographic, History Channel, Military Channel and the Nature Channel.
Any one of these does, for a profit, a better job in any given year, than NPR has done in it’s entire existance. And these companies do not have a gun to our head, demanding money.
NPR needs to be totally defunded for aiding and abetting the enemy.
So, what's the difference between that, and total control of a person's health care? Or regulation of what lightbulbs they purchase?
Project much? ; )
I thought trying to run our lives and get all up in our business was their stock n trade!
I've had this conversation with many Liberals.
"You Republicans want to control everything about my life!"
"No, we just want to be left alone."
"No! You're nazis! You're all about control!"
The truth is that Liberals insist that abortion be freely available to all. They are willing impose confiscatory levels of taxation on people, tons of regulations, and all sorts of intrusive laws -- but they do not see themselves as controlling, so long as they allow abortion to exist.
On the other hand, Conservatives who want a truly limited federal government, low taxes, less regulation, and less oversight of what people can and cannot do -- such people are seen as control freaks because they want states to have the power to regulate abortion.
Very twisted view of the world.
I actually saw a commercial on TV, touting the “Opportunity” to have the president give a graduation speech at your high school. All you had to do was write an essay entitled “Why x High School deserves to have President Obama attend their Graduation”.
So, either the public schools are turning out students who have no idea how to read or write (a distinct possibility); or no one wants him in the neighborhood.
Defund NPR permanently. This seals the deal.
Don’t forget the Smithsonian Channel
I bet Schiller isn’t feeling too chirpy today! I watched this earlier and it was great. Good to see James O’K. is still up to his great sting operations! I love that guy. Wonder whatever happened to Heather or whatever her name was from his first sting? Glad to see he didn’t let that little trouble down in LA stop him.
Well, good to have this exposed. It is very chilling, tho. At least ‘the elite lefties’ are poorly represented in our population. Universities should be closed.
This is going to be a big story everywhere....except the MSM.
Defund them already, kkthx. =.=
I think the guy saying that they would probably be better off without federal funding is going to come back and haunt them.
What a racist xenophobe. Time to pull the plug on this propaganda machine.
Pray for America
This is amazing, and worth the watch....SPREAD IT AROUND!
Now James O’Keefe has been promoted to “conservative filmaker” by the old media?
The guy is quite a hero, actually. We need at least 1,000 more investigative journalists like him., on the streets, hungry for stories.
“flaming Christian conservative” = they say that like it’s a bad thing?
Can’t watch video - did the flaming liberal progressive “national public” radio executive take the muslim baksheesh?
Don’t expect the MSM to report this, as they feel the same way about the Tea Party.
What do you suppose Mr. Schiller’s annual pay might be ?
It is especially rich when this idiot tells us how Juan Williams just isn't NPR material (since they are all about reporting and objectivity), after going on at length about what a bunch of redneck, ignorant, gun-toting, racist hillbillies the Republican party is controlled by.
I Hope you have enjoyed your job, and it's relative anonymity Mr. Ron Schiller (any relation to Vivian Schiller?). As of today, you are famous, and soon likely to be unemployed.
Can't wait until the talk radio crowd gets going with this.
Education is one of my pet-peeve issues and I find it interesting (as well as hilarious) that they think university = intellect, etc, etc, etc.
On the news today it was reported the WH has received a total of 14 applications to hear bambi speak at High School graduation. So they extended the application time.
the application instructions must be written above the 3rd grade level.
Lol, O’Keefe definitely has good timing, just as the defunding of NPR is being proposed in the House.
“And these companies do not have a gun to our head, demanding money.”
I thought you had to pay for cable or dish network!
I’ll be laughing all the way to the post office to mail my taxes (not really) IF they played it LIVE ON TV in Congress, heck play it twice, both in the House and again in the Senate AND carry it on C-SPAN. You can bet we’ll be seeing it on FOX with the obligatory comments to whichever host by Juan himself. Bet we see it with Bret, BOR, Sean and Greta too over the next 4 nights.
” fanatically involved in peoples personal lives “
Yeah, like those fanatical Christians using the political process to make us use mercury filled lightbulbs, telling us how much water to use to flush the toilet, trying to tell us what we should and should not drive, what we should and should not eat, how much energy we can use and how we are to produce it, making us recycle or face fines, and the grandaddy of them all - taking control of our medical care system.
Those people just can’t seem to mind their own business, forcing their religious views on everyone else. They should keep their religion to themselves! If they want to do or not do those things, fine - be an example, but leave us alone.
Those fundamentalist evangelicals should just leave us alone!
wha? The Christian religion isn’t doing those things? Some other religion is?
That sums it up pretty well. The only freedom liberals care about is the “freedom” to kill your own kids.
No taxpayer funds.
Defund the bastidges.
Not conforming to their worldview is “controlling them”, in their eyes.
they think university = intellect
Actually, it’s not that university = intellect. It’s “believing the way we do” = intellect. The university aspect just facilitates the brainwashing to believe the way they do.
There are plenty of people with “university” degrees that they insist are “stupid”, merely because they don’t hold the same humanist worldview.
The thought that even a penny of my tax money goes to support this smarmy creep Schiller is disgusting. Defund NPR now!
What a condescending, self important creep. I’m glad this video is out there; it shows these people for what they are.
I have a feeling we are about to find out what he is paid and by his own words should be fired like Juan Williams.
Pray for America
There is absolutely no rational excuse to fund NPR. There are numerous and ever-expanding media outlets and we are broke.
Why isn’t this on the sidebar?
If NPR is not defunded, its a sign our bureacracy is so entrenched that it can’t be removed and we are doomed. Seriously. There is no reason to fund this nonsense, even if they were the most patriotic government organization in America.
Schiller said that is what he is most disappointed by in this country, which is that the educated, so-called elite in this country is too small a percentage of the population, so that you have this very large un-educated part of the population that carries these ideas.
LOL No doubt this is an isolated view.
Stunning that we are paying for our own demise.
Funding commie propagandists at NPR, PBS, and colleges too.
Is this the happy wife, VIVIAN SCHILLER?
What is their combined take of taxpayer salary and benefit dollars from this so-called “NPR”?
Meet the Schillers
Just another happy little family of prim and proper FACISTs, aren’t they?
