The unhinged house attorney at PBS who said the government must seize the children of Republicans if Joe Biden became president “no longer works” for the taxpayer-subsidized network.
In yet another undercover sting operation, Project Veritas caught Michael Beller unaware. And like the outright communist staffers of failed socialist candidate Bernie Sanders, he spilled the beans. He disclosed exactly what the leftist ruling-class elites who run the federal bureaucracy and its myriad agencies and subsidiaries such as PBS think about Americans.
They think they’re stupid. They hate them. They think Americans can’t run their own lives. They want them to die.
Despite thinking that, the leftists at PBS can’t have employees saying such things.
And so Beller is no longer living on the taxpayers’ dime.
Seize the Children
Beller told the undercover PV reporter that President Trump “is close to Hitler,” which means Trump supporters must be “close to Hitler” as well.
If Trump had defeated Biden, Beller said he would “go to the White House and throw Molotov cocktails.” But Biden “won,” so Beller explained what he would to Republican voters and their children.
Trump voters will “be raising a generation of intolerant, horrible people — horrible kids.” The elites — such as Beller — cannot allow that, and so the government must seize the children of Trump voters to “re-educate” them.
“We go for all the Republican voters and Homeland Security will take their children away…. We’ll put them into the re-education camps,” he told the PV reporter. “Enlightenment camps. They’re nice, they have Sesame Street characters in the classrooms, and they watch PBS all day.”
Unlike Me, Americans Are Stupid
Beller told the PV reporter that living in the nation’s capital — with the rest of the country’s ruling class elites — means he is a cut above other Americans, including stupid Trump voters:
Americans are so f***ing dumb. You know, most people are dumb. It’s good to live in a place 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?
Thus, Beller is happy about the Chinese Virus. A result of the economic globalization and open borders that leftists such as Beller support, the virus is supposedly rampaging through Red States. All the better to cull the herd of stupid Trump voters.
“What’s great is that COVID is spiking in all the red states right now. So that’s great,” he told the PV reporter.
And why is that, the reporter asked.
“Because either those people won’t come out to vote for Trump — you know the red states — or a lot of them are sick and dying,” Beller explained.
Shortly after the video went viral, Beller quit.
“PBS response to Project Veritas: ‘This employee no longer works for PBS. As a mid-level staff attorney, he did not speak on behalf of our organization, nor did he make any editorial decisions,” the taxpayer-subsidized network tweeted:
There is no place for hateful rhetoric at PBS, and this individual’s views in no way reflect our values or opinions.
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.

The headmistress of PBS, Paula Kerger, claimed Beller lost his job because he was “targeted” by a “far-right group that is known for producing deceptive videos.”
Was Beller a “mid-level staff attorney?” Maybe. In a story that claimed Beller “resigned” — meaning resign or be fired — the Associated Press called him a “a contracts lawyer in PBS’ general counsel office.”
The lawyer did not speak on behalf of PBS or make any editorial decisions, PBS spokesman Jeremy Gaines said.
“There is no place for hateful rhetoric at PBS, and this individual’s views in no way reflect our values or opinions,” he said.
