NPR lied

Posted by Richard on March 11, 2011

From the beginning of the NPR-gate story, it bugged me that NPR's critics were so focused on what Ron Schiller said about the Tea Party and Jews controlling the media. To me, the big story was that NPR executives were eager to schmooze with and accept funding from a front group for the Muslim Brotherhood, the parent organization of Hamas. (Although I can certainly understand why ADL is upset and demanding an apology. I don't know if Tea Party Patriots has asked for an apology.)

NPR, of course, insisted that they'd repeatedly turned down the $5 million contribution. But now that Project Veritas has released its second NPR-gate video, that claim has been shown to be a lie. And the focus is now where I think it belongs — on NPR's knowing collaboration with a Muslim Brotherhood front group, the fictitious Muslim Education Action Center, and its willingness to not only accept the donation, but help make sure the source remains anonymous.

In her conversations with MEAC's "Ibrahim Kasaam," Betsy Liley, Senior Director of Institutional Giving, suggested more than once that the donation could be directed to a specific purpose, such as supporting NPR's foreign desk or religious coverage. And she revealed that she had checked out the MEAC website, which states that the organization is dedicated to spreading Sharia "across the world."

Big Journalism's Larry O'Connor thinks it's time for a Congressional investigation: 

While taking great pains to isolate Mr Schiller (who had already tendered his resignation to the publicly-funded broadcaster) NPR also suggested to the American public that they had no intention of accepting the proposed donation from MEAC and had, in fact, “repeatedly refused” the donation.  Only later in the day did NPR reveal that they had been vetting the group as recently as last week with hopes of obtaining their 501(c)(3) credentials.  We continue to ask:  Why vet a group you have repeatedly refused to take money from?

What we are witnessing is NPR’s ‘Modified Limited Hangout’ made famous by the engineers of the Watergate cover-up.  NPR is attempting to admit guilt and beg forgiveness for the lesser “crime” of making intolerant remarks about conservatives and supporters of Israel as a means to misdirect from the much larger and odious crime of being willing to accept blood money from a Muslim Brotherhood front group.

These two conflicting accounts could very well have paved the way for CEO Vivian Schiller’s ouster as her forced resignation was announced twelve hours after our article exposing the contradiction.  Now, with today’s video showing an active engagement from the NPR development team with the journalists posing as Shariah advocates and “All Things Considered” aficionados, NPR’s attempt at deception is clear for all tax payers to see.

MEAC: “It sounded like you were saying NPR would be able to shield us from a government audit, is that correct?”

Liley: “I think that is the case, especially if you are anonymous. I can inquire about that.”

And in a subsequent e-mail from Liley to MEAC, Liley wrote that she’s “awaiting a draft of a gift agreement from our legal counsel and will share it when I have it.”  That sure is a funny way of “repeatedly refusing” a donation.

This should be the long-overdue death knell for taxpayer funding of NPR and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which amounts to about half a billion dollars a year.

Brzezinski: protect our enemies from our friends

Posted by Richard on September 21, 2009

Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was National Security Advisor to America's Worst President (so far), is calling for the United States to come to the defense of Iran if it faces attack. No, really. I'm not making this up. In the Bizarro World of today's left, which is reflexively sympathetic to anyone and anything anti-American or anti-Israel, this kind of vile suggestion actually makes sense:

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Zbigniew Brzezinski said the United States should make clear that it will attack Israeli jets if they fly over Iraq on their way to attack Iran.

"We are not exactly impotent little babies," said Brzezinski, national security adviser during the Carter administration, in an interview with The Daily Beast Web site when asked how aggressive President Obama can be in telling Israel that a military strike in Iran is not in America's interest. "They have to fly over our airspace in Iraq. Are we just going to sit there and watch?

"We have to be serious about denying them that right," continued Brzezinski, who endorsed Obama early in the Democratic primary but was not an official adviser to the campaign. "That means a denial where you aren't just saying it. If they fly over, you go up and confront them. They have the choice of turning back or not. No one wishes for this but it could be a Liberty in reverse."

Israeli forces mistakenly attacked the USS Liberty during the 1967 Six-Day War.

Brzezinski is actually arguing that, should Israel go after Iran's nuclear weapons program to preempt another holocaust, America's national security interests would be served by going to war with Israel in order to protect a regime that wants to create "a world without America and Israel." If that isn't right out of Bizarro World, I don't know what is. 

This contemptible slimeball not only thinks we should kill Israelis to protect the Islamofascists who want to exterminate them, he has the nerve to justify it as "Liberty in reverse." As if a premeditated attack on Israeli jets were morally equivalent to a tragic case of mistaken identity.

Brzezinski apparently shares Carter's loathing of Israel and Jews and his affection for radical Islamists.

Wright blames “them Jews”

Posted by Richard on June 10, 2009

President Obama's "role model and spiritual mentor" for twenty years, the man who helped shape Obama's world-view and inspired The Audacity of Hope, is back in the news. The Rev. Jeremiah Wright told the Newport News, VA, Daily Press that he knows why Obama hasn't been in touch lately (emphasis added):

Asked if he had spoken to the president, Wright said: "Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office. …

"They will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. … I said from the beginning: He's a politician; I'm a pastor. He's got to do what politicians do."

Wright was unrepentant about the hateful and divisive sermons that surfaced during the campaign (giving us soundbites like "God damn America" and "The government lied about inventing the HIV virus as a means of genocide against people of color") and denied that he had any regrets:

"Regret for what… that the media went back five, seven, 10 years and spent $4,000 buying 20 years worth of sermons to hear what I've been preaching for 20 years?

"Regret for preaching like I've been preaching for 50 years? Absolutely none," Wright said.

So Wright maintains that he's been preaching the same way for 20-50 years, huh? But I recall Obama insisting that he never — well, hardly ever — heard Wright say anything hateful, offensive, or inappropriate during his twenty-year association.

Maybe Obama just never really listened (narcissists tend not to be good listeners).

British diplomat curses Jews

Posted by Richard on February 10, 2009

A high-ranking British Foreign Office diplomat and Middle East expert has been arrested for publicly cursing Israel and Jews. Charles Johnson at LGF expressed my sentiments exactly (as he often does):

I’m not sure which is more disgusting — this antisemitic rant by a British diplomat, or the fact that in Britain you can be imprisoned for seven years because you said some words.

It’s just policy differences

Posted by Richard on December 20, 2007

Unbe-frickin-lievable. Muslim students at the University of California Irvine campus have:

  • harassed, intimidated, and assaulted Jews (verbally and physically)
  • called for the slaughter of Jews
  • held speeches and distributed literature preaching hatred of Jews
  • repeatedly defaced property with swastikas
  • destroyed a Holocaust memorial

Federal law requires recipients of federal money to undertake efforts to end discrimination based on race or ethnicity, so the Zionist Organization of America filed a federal complaint alleging that the school, by failing to take disciplinary action against the perpetrators of such acts, had not met this obligation. The feds have rejected the complaint (emphasis added):

The Office of Civil Rights, which operates under the auspices of the Department of Education, said in a report released last week that some Muslim student activities were offensive to Jewish students.

But the report concludes the speeches, marches and other activities were based on opposition to Israeli policies, not the national origin of Jewish students.

Oh, sure, calling Jews dogs and pigs, throwing rocks at them, and insisting that Allah wants them all killed — those things may be offensive to some people, but they're really just expressions of disagreement over political issues. Move along folks, no discrimination to see here.

How utterly disgusting.
