Below is an excerpt from the statement Sarah Palin posted on her Facebook page calling for the defunding of NPR.
“At a time when our country is dangerously in debt and looking for areas of federal spending to cut, I think we’ve found a good candidate for defunding. National Public Radio is a public institution that directly or indirectly exists because the taxpayers fund it. And what do we, the taxpayers, get for this? We get to witness Juan Williams being fired from NPR for merely speaking frankly about the very real threat this country faces from radical Islam.”
Mike Huckabee is also calling on the defunding of NPR.
“NPR has discredited itself as a forum for free speech and a protection of the First Amendment rights of all and has solidified itself as the purveyor of politically correct pabulum and protector of views that lean left,’ Huckabee said in a statement provided to CNN.”
Bill O’Reilly announced tonight on the O’Reilly factor that Jim Demint will move to defund NPR.
