PBS forced to fire employee after leaked video showed him advocating for ‘re-education camps’

The government-subsidized Public Broadcasting Station was forced to fire a mid-level employee after leaked video showed the individual promoting placing supporters of President Donald Trump in “re-education camps.”

The incident, which has become visible egg on the face of an entity that has long been accused of having a left-wing bias, came after Project Veritas released video of PBS principal counsel Michael Beller denouncing Trump’s base and calling for their dystopian removal from society.

“Kids who are growing up know nothing but Trump, for four years. You’ve got to wonder what they’re going to be like,” said Beller. “They’ll be raising a generation of intolerant, horrible people – horrible kids. Even if Biden wins, we go for all the Republican voters, and Homeland Security will take their children away…And we’ll put them into re-education camps.”

“The re-education camps,” he added, “They’re nice, they have Sesame Street in the classrooms, and they watch PBS all day.”

Beller then said “Trump is close to Hitler,” and stated that Democrats should “Go to the White House and throw Molotov cocktails.”

The now-former employee trash-talked his countrymen, claiming that those who live in the nation’s Capitol are more “educated.”

“Americans are so f***ing dumb,” he said. “You know, most people are dumb.”

Beller expressed disdain at the thought of living in small-town America, particularly in “one of these other towns or states where everybody’s just stupid.”

“What’s great is that COVID is spiking in all the red states right now. So, that’s great,” he said.

He then laughed that “a lot of them are sick and dying.”

According to the Daily Wire, PBS distanced itself from Beller, claiming he was “A mid-level staff attorney,” and that “He did not speak on behalf of our organization, nor did he make any editorial decisions.”

PBS claimed that the organization and its employees were not of the same mind.

“There is no place for hateful rhetoric at PBS, and this individual’s views in no way reflect our values or opinions,” PBS stated. “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.”
