NPR Supports Muslim Brotherhood Over GOP & Tea Party
JAMES SIMPSON: As reported at Daily Caller today, senior NPR executive Ron Schiller has been caught in a sting video orchestrated by investigative journalist James O’Keefe. O’keefe’s organization set up a fake Muslim Brotherhood group named the Muslim Education Action Center (MEAC) Trust, and approached NPR about donating $5 million to counter what they described as pro-Zionist coverage in the media.
In the video, Schiller compares the Muslim Brotherhood to the women’s movement, calls tea partiers “seriously racist, racist people,” and justifies NPR’s firing of Juan Williams as an action Schiller was “very proud of.” Schiller was accompanied by Betsy Liley, NPR’s Director of Institutional Giving, who compared the experience of the Muslim Brotherhood to Japanese Americans interred in detention camps during WW II. At one point the two Muslim pretenders joke that they and their friends referred to NPR as “National Palestinian Radio.” Schiller and Liley laughed in agreement.
The statements Schiller and Liley make in the video just get better and better, an eye-popping, monument to their towering arrogance and stupidity. The saddest part is that they personify the kind of presumptuous, conceited attitude endemic to the media left.
