James O’Keefe, the merry prankster who once sent someone dressed like a pimp to ACORN did it again, this time to NPR, getting a former fundraiser for the network to speak candidly about the Tea Party:
On the tapes, Schiller wastes little time before attacking conservatives. The Republican Party, Schiller says, has been “hijacked by this group.” The man posing as Malik finishes the sentence by adding, “the radical, racist, Islamaphobic, Tea Party people.” Schiller agrees and intensifies the criticism, saying that the 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.”
So… what? It’s not exactly polite, but it’s pretty much the truth.
