“fanatically involved in people’s personal lives”

For one thing, it’s a total and complete lie.

Personal freedom is an article of faith for genuine conservatives.

This is great and well worth the watching! Look for NPR Fund’s president, Schiller, to resign or be fired. This gives a lot of ammunition to the Republican’s efforts to defund NPR. James O’Keefe, again doing the work of investigative reporting that “real” journalists are supposed to do.

It’s best to avoid libs completely until such time as economic decline shocks them into some semblance of reality.

I don’t see NPR saying they will take any action against the lib chick in the video.

What is hard to grasp is how James O’Keefe could make anybody believe he is Muslim. The kid practically has the map of Ireland on his face.

Of course, I couldn’t see him as a pimp either.

Goes to show you, leftists have a very tenuous grip on reality. They must have to will themselves to believe the nonsense they do. Of course, they live in a bubble and have a vast support group to keep them mired in their fantasies.

Just anounced on Rush - Schiller has been let go from NPR, and they were “apalled” by his comments.

This Schiller guy is a homo, too. .

If that's true, does Schiller think he'll do well under Sharia law?

They are saying he already resigned to take a job at a liberal think tank or some such.

"Mr. Schiller announced last week that he is leaving NPR for another job."

I think the timing of his resignation corresponds to the moment he realized he was duped.

His resignation came at the same time his “fellow travelers” pinned him down and said -

“you know we all believe what you do, but you also know that it can’t be known that we think that way, so you’re gonna have to go”

“fanatically involved in people’s personal lives” For one thing, it’s a total and complete lie. Personal freedom is an article of faith for genuine conservatives.

Correct! It's wise to remember that, since the '60s and '70s, "people's personal lives" ALWAYS is Lib code for their illegal drug use.

And, lately, their quest for legalized gay marriage.

That's all that matters to them, which is why they feel it's perfectly all right to actually get “fanatically involved in people’s personal lives” when it comes to what people eat, drink, talk about, etc. The biggest bunch of hypocritical fascists in world history.

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”.

HEard part of it on Rush. The NPR guy literally says, “we’d probably be better off without the federal money”. Rush says that’s the part he’s going to regret the most.

The libs never do. They are obsessed with it.

BTW, I am leaning toward legalization of drugs. Not necessarily for liberatrian reasons. Just to try to squeeze the drug gangsters out of business. Or at least cut into their profits and murderous operations.

Haven’t been many bootleg-related murders since 1933.

husband and wife team?

It says in the article that they are no relation. Still, it's not all that common a name. Makes me wonder.

NPR Cans Ronald Schiller
Posted Tuesday, March 08, 2011 5:34 PM | By David Weigel

That, from the new statement from NPR’s Dana Rehm, is the shoe that took all day to drop. The entire statement, which also clarifies that Schiller decided to leave before the sting occurred:

“Haven’t been many bootleg-related murders since 1933”.

deaths from alcohol- including drunk driving- especially teenage deaths- don’t count?

yeah just make drugs legal and let parents then argue with kids about how harmful they are. Cut those legs right out from under us.

Support James O’Keefe.

Project Veritas Investigates:

NPR
Mar 8 2011

Project Veritas’ latest investigation focuses on the publically-funded media organization, National Public Radio. PV investigative reporters, Shaughn Adeleye and Simon Templar posed as members of the Muslim Action Education Center, a non-existent group with a goal to “spread the acceptance of Sharia across the world.”

In this first video, produced by James O’Keefe, Shaughn and Simon sit down with NPR Foundation President Ron Schiller.

I’m talking MURDER.

And the drinking was actually heavier under prohibition. The “forbidden fruit” thing.

People are both drunk and high on the roads all the time. No legislation seems to change that. Only police repression might.

We’ve been in a “war on drugs” for what, 25 years?

It’s not working out very well on any front. Might as well toss in the towel and admit that there is no way we can really legislate morality.

“What happens when a lib is found here, or a gay friendly freeper? They are banned.”

Yes, and our biases and preferences are put up front, we are a traditional Conservative site.

NPR claims to be bias-free, open-minded, reasonable and tolerant. If so they would not ban someone for suggesting that some muslims are to be feared, they’d just state a different pov for “balance” like they so often do for other issues.
