Ian Murphy, step back: James O'Keefe is back in the game. The young conservative activist and prankster released a new video Tuesday morning showing Ron Schiller, a recently departed NPR fundraising executive, bashing Republicans, the Tea Party, and Juan Williams for Islamophobia during a meeting with what Schiller was told were representatives of a charity funded by the Muslim Brotherhood. "They’re seriously racist, racist people," he says of Tea Partiers. Schiller announced Monday that he was leaving for a job at the Aspen Institute. NPR strongly condemned his taped remarks Tuesday. O'Keefe rose to fame with the sting videos that helped bring down the community organizing group ACORN. Read it at Weigel. Watch the video here
