Activist (James O'Keefe) says he targeted NPR because of Juan Williams firing
cnn ^ | 3/8/2011 | Kevin Liptak

The conservative activist responsible for producing an undercover video showing a National Public Radio senior executive slamming the Tea Party as "racist" and "scary" is speaking out about why he went after the organization.

And late Tuesday, NPR announced it has placed the executive, Senior Vice President for Fundraising Ron Schiller, on administrative leave.

Filmmaker James O'Keefe said the idea for the sting stemmed from an incident in October when NPR fired analyst Juan Williams after he said he got scared when people wore Muslim garb on airplanes.

Hannity just told him, “Juan, sue. They slandered you last time, now they are slandering you again”.

Williams is exactly like those at NPR..
ELSE he wouldn't have been hired in the first place..
Very little difference between Williams and Colmes...

Any that think there is, is delusional..
Liberals just cannot put the dominoes together.. else they are evil to the bone..

This is not a true statement.
He supplied equipment and advice to two investigative reporter, who targeted NPR because of Juan William’s firing. He didn’t chose the investigation target, they did!
Just another CNN lie to tar people on their hate list!

Juan Williams will always be a liberal. O’Keefe is the real deal but ALL of TV is garbage.

Not to take anything away from O’Keefe, because he is a pretty sharp young guy, but these people are so stupid, it’s not that hard to catch them in the act. I guess when you have no moral compass, any direction is as good as any other....underage hookers, anti-Semitic remarks, all fine and dandy.

The thing about liberals like those on NPR is that they are easy to catch because the entire media machine is so biased in favor of the libs that they genuinely believe the entire planet thinks the way they do. it never occurs to them to watch what they say because the media covers for themselves so well that, up until recently, exposure for bias has never been an issue.

"While the meeting I participated in turned out to be a ruse, I made statements during the course of the meeting that are counter to NPR's values and also not reflective of my own beliefs," Schiller said in a statement.

Not reflective of your own beliefs? Liberalism IS a mental disease!

Williams I suspect is not your typical wacko Liberal.

Seems to me he is a fairly rational guy who probably plays the more wacko Liberal role on Fox. I could be wrong, but there are times he just seems way to rational to actually be a member of the wacko club. It might be the actual reason he was fired from NPR.

You got it right. Williams is still not educated to the extent of how he has been conditioned and brainwashed for his entire life into the Postmodern German philosophy. He is still a cultural Marxist, by many standards. He really has to dig into his philosophy and do much introspection which takes a lot of time and research.

Liberals are so ignorant on so many levels, but that ignorance was purposefully instilled by the “public school” system. The school system designed by Dewey of the Prussian design—puts out group think. Conformity is what it produces and they use Pavlov/Skinner methodologies to get the desired response from children (the atheist/hedonist/pagan worldview). It is not an accident—lots of psychology and Ayers type thinking has designed the public school curricula since Dewey.

GET your kids out of the public schools or destroy the DOE and destroy all the Marxist multicultural, diversity, tolerance social cr*p out of it and instill the McGuffey Readers with Classical education. Get the social sexualizing conditioning cr*p out of the schools.

Yes but you have to love O’Keefe. He is so over the top. Anybody with a brain would have busted him wearing his mother’s fur coat in that ACORN sting. I’ll be he was outrageously fakey in that meeting with Schiller. It just goes to show how stupid these people are. I think its hilarious and thanks to him these people are being outed for what they are. Hopefully now all Federal funding of the NPR will be cancelled.

. . .but these people are so stupid, it’s not that hard to catch them in the act.

Not after one has does all the hard work; crossed 't's and i's; and put oneself in harms way, really; considering the 'goons' that now abound in D.C. per Obama, Inc.; and the lead player at 'Justice'. We do see daily; evidence of their stupidity; catching them at it - i.e. high rankers; guard down and saying the worst per current Government/Media big-time politics/Institution - is not just 'easy'.

Takes determination and courage, IMHO; and of course, it this was in large supply and therefore 'easy'; we would have more O'Keefe's doing just that.

They may be stupid, but they're in control, and they're protected. Up until O'Keefe's arrival on the scene, they've been getting away with it because our side offers very little fight. It's good to see O'Keefe taking risks that most on the Right are too timid to take, even against easy targets like Schiller and those acorn flunkies.

Ron Schiller committed a hate crime.

Ron Schiller says all Tea Partyers are white.

And that they are racists.

We really should have more like him. Help counteract the media and govt schools, go out and shoot -- video. Turn over the lib rock and expose the crawling things beneath.
