Two NPR executives are shown having lunch with potential NPR donors, who were really working undercover. In the video, they pose as representatives of a Muslim organization that is considering making a $5 million donation to NPR.
"Tea Party people" aren't "just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic," NPR executive Ron Schiller says. "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."
He goes on to say, "The Tea Party is fanatically involved in people's personal lives and very fundamental Christian. I wouldn't even call it Christian. It's this weird evangelical kind of move."
