An employee of the taxpayer funded Public Broadcasting Service was recently caught on camera saying that the children of Republicans should be taken from them and placed in reeducation camps.
He also said most Republicans are stupid and compared President Trump to Hitler.
The whole thing was captured by the conservative group Project Veritas.

PBS clearly knew what a disaster this was for them, because they fired him.
The Daily Caller reports:
PBS Fires Former Employee Following Project Veritas Video Exposing ‘Hateful Rhetoric’
PBS is distancing itself from a former employee featured in a Project Veritas video who appeared to defend violent attacks on the White House, proposed re-education for the children of President Donald Trump supporters, and praised the COVID-19 deaths of GOP voters.
“This employee no longer works for PBS,” a PBS spokesperson told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “As a mid-level staff attorney, he did not speak on behalf of our organization, nor did he make any editorial decisions.”
“There is no place for hateful rhetoric at PBS, and this individual’s views in no way reflect our values or opinions,” the spokesperson said. “We strongly condemn violence and will continue to do what we have done for 50 years — use our national platform and local presence to strengthen communities and bring people together.”
Why are Americans forced to fund PBS?
They are not being subtle anymore. An attorney for PBS recommended reeducation camps for the children of Republicans.

Again, why must taxpayers fund this?
