James O’Keefe continued his yeoman’s work exposing the progressive media for what they are — an arrogant elite bitterly hostile to Middle America. Disguised as a delegation from the fictional “Muslim Education Action Center,” which stated as an objective that “We must combat intolerance to spread acceptance of Sharia across the world,” two men working with O’Keefe met with NPR executives, discussing a plan to donate $5 million. NPR Executive Ron Schiller wasted no time in letting them know what he really thought about Middle America.
While Schiller did not bat an eye about the MEAC talking about being founded by the Muslim Brotherhood, complaining about “Zionist influence,” or the need to impose sharia law around the country, he was quick to express his outrage at the Tea Party movement. Needless to say, his opposition was not rooted in what they believe, but in who they are. Schiller notes that the Tea Party is “not just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic, I mean basically they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-America gun-toting. I mean, it’s scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people.”
(Doesn’t this remind you of someone else? Someone who said, “It’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”)
The real problem, of course, is the lack of Muslim voices in the media — “it’s the same thing we faced as a nation when we didn’t have female voices.”
This tells us everything we need to know about the media — open admissions of advocating sharia law are not scary, or even worth mentioning. To Schiller though, White Middle Americans demonstrating about tax cuts are horrifying.
Schiller goes on to describe liberals as more intelligent and informed than conservatives. “In my personal opinion, liberals today might be more educated, fair and balanced than conservatives,” he said. Schiller also praised the firing of Juan Williams over his comments about Muslim terrorism, which NPR publicly maintains was a mistake.
The real point is not about federal funding, or sharia law, or the Tea Party movement. The point is the media hates us not because of anything we believe, but because of who we are. They are a hostile class that despises Middle America and wants to dismantle it.
As always, the real question in politics is not about what, it’s about who. O’Keefe’s latest blockbuster shows that the media center funded by your tax dollars hates you and wants to destroy you. Schiller noted that “we would be better off without federal funding.” After these revelations, he might just get his wish.
