NPR hobnobs with undercover reporters posing as Muslim Brotherhood front group, VP rails against “white, middle-America, gun-toting racists” Project Veritas video:
This sting site was the front for a ruse to see if NPR was jihadist-sympathizing. They didn’t just take the bait, they surprised even the most jaded among us.
In this video fromÂ Project Veritas, Ron Schiller,Â NPRÂ Foundation’s senior VP for development, laments the lack of “educated elites,” says the Republican Party has been hijacked by Tea Partiers who are a “weird Evangelical kind of move [sic],” and talks about “Islamophobia,” xenophobia, and the need for more Muslim voices in the media.
What kind of voices? He does not raise an eyebrow when the reporters say they are with the Muslim Brotherhood (they say they are looking to contribute $5 million to public media), he does not protest when one discusses the importance of giving the views of Hamas and Hizballah alongside that of Israel, and he is sympathetic when the reporters discuss “Zionist” bias in the media.
And Schiller says that, in the interest of independence, “it is very clear that we would be better off in the long run without federal funding,” and thatÂ NPRÂ only gets a small portion of its funding from the government anyway.
Watch, watch again, and tell a friend. Schiller’s wish may yet come true.
