Update (1/12/21, 3:27 p.m.): Journalist Matthew Keys reported that PBS has fired Michael Beller. PBS commented on the situation:
"There is no place for hateful rhetoric at PBS, and this individual’s views in no way reflect our values or opinions," a PBS spokesperson said in a statement.— Matthew Keys (@MatthewKeysLive) January 12, 2021
Original Story: Everyone seems to have lost their minds. With the prevailing narrative in the media pushing that “right-wing” people are “inciting violence,” it’s always interesting to see what the people publicly saying those things are saying privately themselves.
Project Veritas, headed by Founder James O’Keefe, released a new undercover video on Tuesday showing the partly taxpayer-funded Public Broadcasting Service’s (PBS) principal counsel Michael Beller say that if Joe Biden didn’t win the 2020 presidential election that people should “Go to the White House and throw Molotov cocktails.”
“What are you going to do if we (Biden) don’t win?” the undercover Veritas reporter asked Beller.
“Go to the White House and throw Molotov cocktails,” Beller answered with a smile and a chuckle.
That wasn’t the only “suggestion” Beller had for Trump supporters and Republicans in general.
“Even if Biden wins, we go for all the Republican voters,” Beller said before going full authoritarian, “and Homeland Security will take their children away. And we’ll put them (Trump supporters’ children) into re-education camps.”
Keep in mind, this is a lawyer and someone with a lot of pull within a partly taxpayer-funded organization.
Later in the video, Beller brought up his idea of putting people right-of-center into “re-education camps.”
“They’re nice,” Beller said. “They have Sesame Street characters in the classrooms and they watch PBS all day.”
Beller was also super-psyched that COVID, at the time, might have been spiking in "red states."
"What's great is that COVID is spiking in all the red states, right now," Beller said with glee. "So, that's great!"
