The House of Representatives voted last week to de-fund NPR.
Eric Rhoads, a lifetime conservative and the publisher of Radio Ink magazine, responded to the announcement in his blog; “If public broadcasting were a target only for financial reasons, I’d be less impassioned to save it. But it’s being targeted because of the politics of the people running it. That bugs me. Shutting down opposing viewpoints can never be a good idea.”
I posted the following response:
“Eric, I agree with you. I’ve been politically conservative for most of my life but I’m beginning to hear ravings from fringe conservatives that sound just a bed sheet away from being K.K.K. If the money were the true motive behind this, okay. But it isn’t. The motive is rage. And that gives me pause, as it obviously does you. – Roy H. Williams”
