This is a guest post from the ever fabulous Monica of TransGriot
NPR exec Ron Schiller was caught on hidden camera saying this.
"The current Republican Party is not really the Republican Party. It's been hijacked by this group that is ... not just Islamophobic but, really, xenophobic. They believe in sort of white, middle America, gun-toting — it's scary. They're seriously racist, racist people."
So what's the problem? He told the truth. How many racist, Islamophobic and xenophobic signs did we see at Tea Klux Klan rallies? How many white middle aged peeps did we see at these rallies waving Confederate flags? How many Tea Klux Klan members were openly displaying guns or using gun laced rhetoric at these Tea Klux Klan rallies? Take all the time you need to answer that question.
And we know you conservafools hate NPR because it does something your conservamedia doesn't do in terms of intelligently cover what's going on politically.
I think that kind of media coverage is worth my tax dollars instead of $7 million going to support a vehicle that makes four left turns on a NASCAR track
It's too bad NPR CEO Vivian Schiller and Ron Schiller, the person who made the comment are resigning .
But let's get real, Ron Schiller told the truth about the Tea Klux Klan. Too bad he's going to lose his job over it and it stirs up the conservafools to make another renewed push to strip NPR of its federal funding.
