    He is entitled to his opinion, however ignorant and bigoted it may be.

    It's inappropriate given his job. So reflex, would you say the majority of Tea Party members are racist, racist Islamophobic, really xenophobic people? is that the first image you see when they are brought up? Don't succumb to prejudice. It can lead to bigotry and is slanderous.

    In any event NPR officials are sure distancing themselves from him. I wonder if it's sincere?

    What if the answer is, truly, yes?

    Just as Harry Boy sees all democrats as scum sucking loons maybe there are also people who see all Tea Partiers as racist, Islanophobic, xenophobic people.

    For the same reason.

    I guess maybe my question and your answer was a bit rhetorical. I wish the answers weren't truly yes and I wish we all would take a step back once and a while and examine ourselves.

    This country has become a circus. We value technology, fat slobs losing weight on TV...and people crying over getting a chance to be on American Idol.

    We now look at politics as "either you're with us or against us" and we stand behind party lines as if we KNOW our side it right. I don't think most Americans even have the ability or desire to know what's really going on. So we sit and sling sh1t day after day hoping something will get done. That somebody or someone will "FIX" all that is wrong.

    We're so negative, we don't even see that there's still a lot of good things happening and opportunities abound. I think some of us believe it was all taken away...WTF??

    It's sad to watch...REALLY sad.

    You all know that this was orchestrated by O'Keefe... who dressed as a muslim.. Breitbart did not even want anything to do with this...

    I agree that NPR should no longer be funded, and break free from the shackles that the Republicans want to place on them.. they will survive and ultimately be stronger.

    I don't think that the VAST majority of tea partiers are racist or xenophobic, but there are some and they make a lot of noise. And you know what they say..."the squeeky wheel gets the grease" or attention in this case. As far as the NPR exec goes its her opinion and just as she didn't allow it to affect her ability to do her job fairly then who cares. I'm sure there are many people in the news business that think left wing liberals are all tree hugging communists. But again as long as they don't allow their opinion to creep into their job again who cares. Unless you feel self concious about your beliefs then it shouldnt' bother you.

    OKeefe's a genius.

    Another liberal pig outed. By the way, By the way, NPR supposedly does the news and not opinion shows...

    CEO has been fired. Good riddens. Juan Williams says hello you two faced whore.

    NPR chairman says board asked CEO to step down.


    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The chairman of NPR's board of directors says the board asked chief executive Vivian Schiller to step down after another executive called the tea party racist.

    What I really take from all of these "blunders" is just how stupid many pols and other ofiicials are.

    How does he not do his due diligence before sitting down w/O'Keefe? How is Walker unaware that it's not really one of the Koch brothers?

    (btw, since it was O'Keefe -- anybody make sure this hasn't been doctored or edited? :) )

    So not vast, just majority? The squeaky wheel analogy is a slippery slope and I for one try not to judge groups based on the noisy or a few rotten apples. It's what MrsP was talking about. Do you like it when Harry does it?

    I can't see how an official of a public news organization with such deep prejudice can not been seen as having a total conflict of interest, given his position.

    Can we consider them "isolated extremists" that reveal nothing about the movement itself? Or is that reasoning limited to another group?

    It's kind of hard to doctor sentences in video form. I agree with how stupid pols are...lib or pub.

    That was partly tongue in cheek, but I'm pretty sure it came out that his ACORN videos were doctored. The sentences exist but are taken out of context.

    What the fck do you want? You want me to tell you that i must have/am imagined all those people carrying signs with Obama portraited as a witch doctor, or the thousands of people dressed in Red White and Blue yelling that America is NEVER Wrong. If there is a percentage of tea partiers that are racist and xenophobic (and there are) Deal With iT. So how you can say i believe that the whole of the tea party is racist by what i posted...Again if your a member of the tea party you have to deal with the fact that there is a percentage of people that are rotten apples.
