A couple of Schillers resigned from NPR after one of them said (among other things):
Tea Party people aren’t just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic, I mean basically they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-America gun-toting. I mean, it’s scary. They’re seriously racist, racist people.
Well really . . . I haven’t been this shocked since Claude Rains discovered gambling at Rick’s Cafe.
It shakes my belief system to the core to think that someone who works at NPR believes that Tea Party members are scary white gun-toting racists.
Although come to think of it, everyone I know who listens to NPR believes that Tea Party members are scary white gun-toting racists.
These guys really need to give up the federal funding. They could go full bore in promoting their mission and stop pretending to respect the common folk, who in turn would be relieved of the burden of paying for it.
P.S. If it’s real bigotry you’re looking for, film a liberal when he thinks no one but other liberals can hear him.
P.P.S. We had a bus driver in grade school named Mr. Schiller. Real angry German guy. Probably no relation.
