NPR executives caught on tape bashing conservatives and Tea Party, touting liberals
The Daily Caller ^ | 03/08/2011 | Matthew Boyle

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 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, who runs NPR’s foundation.

In a new video released Tuesday morning by conservative filmmaker James O’Keefe, Schiller and Betsy Liley, NPR’s 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.”

I agree, the projection of the left is amazing. Tea Party involved in our personal lives? Obama literally has his hands in our underwear.

Stunning and unbelievable. This NPR twit is hopefully crying in his arugala about now. These guys are off the reservation. Can’t wait to see how these jackals spin this! Kudos to O’Keefe.

O’Keefe only presented the opportunity, NPR played their usual part.

I think we are witnessing the dying throes of American progressive liberalism, these people have become so desperate they are openly unethical.

Hang in there folks we are winning.

This video should mark the end of public funding of NPR.

Did anyone else notice the classic assertion of liberal intellectual superiority by the girly man head of NPR?

The video should be played at all Tea Party meetings so that we can all hear what liberals really think of us. As if we needed more motivation to get them out of government.

The attitude of the girly man seemed to be that it's ok if the government stops funding us, we can get funding from America haters all over the world.

what a coinky-dink

RON SCHILLER is just another rich Chicago-based elitist white wine marxist who has spent his entire professional life (using his Cornell BA in “linguistics”) as a “fundraiser”

fleecing the rich and looting their charitable foundation bequests to fund the destruction of traditional American values like capitalism and individual liberty

a perfect shill for NPR

So sad to be RON SCHILLLER. Imagine having to wake up everyday and be confronted by the intrustion of flaming Christians and conservatives into his life

The Denver Post
Posted: 03/08/2011 01:00:00 AM MST
Updated: 03/08/2011 01:38:33 AM MST

The Denver coroner has identified the man who jumped from the 42nd floor of the Spire Tower in Denver as Kyle A. Dyas, 42, of Fort Collins.

Dyas, music director at KUNC, the National Public Radio affiliate in Greeley, jumped from the SkyClub, a private lounge for residents of the building, at 5 p.m. Sunday, the Denver Medical Examiner’s Office said.

“Yeah, like those fanatical Christians using the political process to make us use mercury filled light bulbs, 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.”

Well according to this little pisher, the “white Christian, gun-toting” middle Americans are just to stupid to know that what the elitist masters of the universe are forcing on them is really nirvana.

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.”

Typical "progressive" clinging to ideas nearly a century old.

The herd of citizens must be governed by “a specialized class whose interests reach beyond the locality." This class is composed of experts, specialists and bureaucrats. The experts, who often are referred to as "elites," were to be a machinery of knowledge that circumvents the primary defect of democracy, the impossible ideal of the "omnicompetent citizen".

-Walter Lippman 1925

Yep, there's an FR article about BO wanting to speak at HS graduations, and not getting enough applications.

The WH is simultaneously asking people to keep quiet about it, and various govs and congresscritters to do some quiet armtwisting.

Me too!! All of these types of programs should be dumped. NPR, the arts one(can’t remember the name), PBS, planned parenthood and anything else like those. They are a huge waste of money, immoral, and one sided. Every time I pay my taxes I cringe and get spitting mad. We pay quarterly so it’s so in your face. Everyone should have to pay like that instead of having it pulled out of their checks.

A tree fell in the woods, but the Republicans were too scared to play the video of the tree falling, so it was as if it never happened.

Is our side willing to do what it takes to get Boehner to play the tape in the house chambers?

The public knows nothing of this and they won’t unless our side has some balls.

Same thing about what Rush said yesterday (Monday, 3/7) in that our side doesn’t yet have a leader man enough to espouse what Obama’s true intentions are.
