NPR and PBS have been on the taxpayer dole for too long a time already. While it may be argued that PBS does have some educational value, and has presented interesting and sometimes very special performances, defunding of one public station cannot be done without doing so to the other. PBS must do well with subscriptions and sales of videos and other paraphernalia. If not, it must tighten its belt as has been asked of the rest of America (except for the Obamas, that is). NPR is a much different situation since, it is biased against conservative thought, while receiving unbiased tax payers’ money to the tune of $420 Million, yearly. Adding insult to injury, NPR has been given $1.8 Million dollar by George Soros, the wealthy socialist who believes in the distribution of the wealth of every one else.
You might recall that Vivian Schiller, CEO of NPR, a while back upheld the firing of Juan Williams, because he expressed a feeling of fear, upon seeing Muslims on a plane he might board. Ms. Schiller, after making a speech this past weekend, stated that the taxpayers monies given to NPR was just “seed money”. She resigned yesterday. More house cleaning at NPR occurred earlier this week when Ron Schiller (apparently no relations), the individual in charge of funding at NPR, also resigned, when he voiced derogatory opinions about the Tea Party, Conservatives and Jews, calling Tea Party racists. Liberals pull the race card when they have nothing in their tank but sheer stupidity. It is time to pull all monies from NPR and ask for any unspent money to be returned, NOW!
Ron Schiller, having left NPR moved quickly to be the Art Director at the Aspen Institute. It is interesting that, there is at least one member of the Tides foundation that sits on Aspen’s Board of Directors. There may be more. If one googles Aspen and Tides, the relationship is quickly evident. If one googles Aspen and Soros, again a relationship is found as well as Soros’ relationship with the Tides Foundation. A group called Apollo, allegedly under the auspices of Tides wrote the Stimulus Bill for their buddy Obama. So, we have a grouping comprised of ASPEN, TIDES, GEORGE SOROS, ACORN, the Reverend Wright, William Ayers, Van Jones, and various unsavory characters who have been regular visitors to the black house. All of these groups seem to have a common denominator, which could place out country in serious jeopardy.
