LOS ANGELES, March 9, 2011 — One despot is down, but many more remain.
The firing of Vivian Schiller, the Civility Killer, from NPR (National Palestinian Radio) is a good start. She is, however, but one link in a rusted chain that needs to be completely disposed of.
The question should not be why NPR imploded, but why it took so long. The answer is because the ‘left’ once again allowed ideological blinders to block out the rays of truth. A great habit of liberals is making excuses for their most toxic elements.
When leftist fringes engage in anti-Semitism, liberals led by apologist Jews blame conservative Christians. Helen Thomas was allowed to spew anti-Semitism for decades. She was a liberal, and therefore protected.
Tookie Williams was a murderer. Yet he wrote children’s books, so the left tried to preserve his life. The New Black Panthers intimidated white voters at polling places. Eric Holder criticizes any implication of wrongdoing as an attack on all of “his people,” which does not include evil conservative whitey.
Now National Palestinian Radio has been exposed as a hotbed of left-wing anti-conservative bigotry and anti-Semitism. The response from NPR is “shock,” as if Casablanca had anything to do with this.
The reaction from conservatives is “Duh!”
Yes, the entire world has long known that NPR makes Al Jazeera look moderate and reasonable.
The left will most likely respond by blaming conservative journalist James O’Keefe for exposing them the way he did ACORN. After all, Mr. Okeefe is not a liberal, so it has to be his fault. He engaged in a serious undercover sting, but he could not possibly be as “sophisticated” as the dolt who prank called the Wisconsin Governor.
After all, Mr. O’Keefe is actually rooting out real corruption.
NPR claimed that Mr. Schiller did not represent the views of NPR. Of course he did. Do we have to get every single one of these ideological bigots on video before enough is enough?
NPR needs to be ‘liberated’ from the public broadcasting system right now. Simply drive a stake through its heart and never let it see the light of day again. If liberals want biased news from a Jihadist perspective, they are welcome to pay for it. Maybe they can merge with Al Jazeera and have Iran subsidize them.
Then conservative legislators need to go after every illegitimate cousin in this dysfunctional leftist family. If NPR and their ideological soulmates want to stand on the street corner like the Westboro Baptist Church, they can do so on their own dime.
Kill PBS. Take a shotgun to Elmo if necessary. Sorry Elmo, but liberal leaders have been using you as a human shield for years. Collateral damage is unfortunate, but every time conservatives try to cut the budget, liberals complain we are hurting the likes of poor Elmo.
I say slaughter him and serve him up as school lunch meat. Leftists will complain (big surprise) that these entities are a tiny fraction of the budget. But that is the entire point.
We are broke, and the left does not want to cut a single solitary thing. They want increased spending.
The days of unlimited wealth are over. The days when conservatives have to fund liberal hate speech are over. If the left wants to take MSNBC and Air America and every other attempt by failed human beings to rant and rave at the right, they just need to pay for it.
If Hollywood celebrities can afford to spend millions of dollars on excessive lifestyles, then they can come up with a few measly dollars to form a radio station or a television network with 24 hour programming filled with Jew-baiting, Republican-hating bile.
It is a delightful irony that leftists railing about conservative greed got so greedy themselves that they put Jihadist blood money over decency. It is even more fantastic that by kowtowing to suicide bombers, it was a terrorist loving NPR executive and his boss who got blown to pieces.
With hundreds of thousands of radio and television stations to choose from, NPR will not be missed. We may not have captured Al Jazeera yet, but at least we got their American affiliate.
