An undercover video of a departing National Public Radio fundraising executive shows him nodding in agreement as men posing as representatives of a Muslim Brotherhood front group rip Jewish control of the media.
Eventually, the President of the NPR Foundation and VP for development, Ron Schiller chimes in, saying that Zionist influence doesn’t exist at NPR, but “it’s there in those who own newspapers obviously.”
The video also shows Schiller ripping Tea Parties, evangelical Christians, and Americans in general for being stupid. He also says NPR would be better off in the long run without federal funding.
The video was put together by James O’Keefe of the ACORN sting fame. It was announced yesterday that Schiller was leaving NPR for the Aspen Institute.
It’s pretty disheartening how socially acceptable anti-Semitism has become among intellectuals as long as it’s cloaked as criticism of Israel. This is something that Jewish conservatives have warned about for a long time, but our warnings are dismissed as an effort to silence legitimate criticism.
Imagine if some white Southerners saying they were representatives of the KKK started complaining about black influence — would NPR execs even meet with them, let alone nod and smile and say, “Well, the black influence is more prevalent elsewhere”?
The whole video is below. The discussion of the Jews starts around the 7 minute mark.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
