Why does NPR still get our tax dollars?

San Francisco Bay Area NPR affiliate KQED has published a comic book guide to Donald Trump’s immigration policy, aimed at students, which is titled “Fear of Foreigners” and casts Trump as part of the “History of Nativism in America.”

The “lesson” consists of twelve panels, starting with two panels depicting the Republican presidential nominee commenting on Mexican immigrants and proposing to shut down Muslim immigration. It goes on to explain: “Some Americans find his rhetoric alarming, but it follows a long tradition of anti-immigrant public discourse.”

Subsequent panels trace hostility to immigration from Benjamin Franklin in the mid-18th century, to the Know-Nothings of the 1850s, through the anti-Catholic Ku Klux Klan, the internment of Japanese-Americans in World War II by FDR, and California’s own Proposition 187 in 1994.

The series misses important facts and dates, and provides little historical context. For example, it leaves out the Immigration Act of 1924, arguably the most important law restricting Jewish migration in the interwar period, preferring to dwell instead on antisemitism by the KKK, Henry Ford, and Charles Lindbergh, which serves the purpose of demonizing America without actually explaining the anti-immigration backlash. And if America was so terrible to Jews, who were fleeing real persecution in Russia and elsewhere, why did they flock to the U.S.? Warner does not interrupt his indictment of America to explain….

    Memory Lane with NPR:

    2010(?) – NPR fires Juan Williams because Racist!

    2011 – James O’Keefe video sting operation as Muslim donor with NPR Sr. VP who calls Tea Party ‘seriously racist’.

    Web says that last Republican charge to defund was led by Eric Cantor. Strikes me as real as holding 80 zillion votes to defund Ocare.

    Current NPR President is Jarl Mohn. Who was Louisville DJ Lee Masters in the 70s on WAKY radio. Louisville WAKY is not that far from Cincinnati WKRP.
