A senior executive for the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), Michael Bellers, was candidly recorded proposing mass government-sanctioned kidnappings of Trump supporters' children to place them in reeducation camps. He was also recorded inciting extreme radical political violence and praising COVID-19 outbreaks in red states.
The video was produced by Project Veritas and posted on Jan. 12, 2021. Some of the insane statements made by Bellers include:
Michael Beller, PBS principal counsel: “We go for all the Republican voters and Homeland Security will take their children away…we’ll put them into the re-education camps.”
“Enlightenment camps. They’re nice, they have Sesame Street characters in the classrooms, and they watch PBS all day.”
“Americans are so f*cking dumb. You know, most people are dumb. It’s good to live in a place [Washington, D.C.] where people are educated and know stuff. Could you imagine if you lived in one of these other towns or cities where everybody's just stupid?”
“What’s great is that COVID is spiking in all the red states right now. So that’s great…a lot of them [red state voters] are sick and dying.”
PBS is a non-profit that receives millions of dollars per year of tax payer funding. PBS has yet to even acknowledge Bellers comments.
