Before I start this article I would like to share a little fun fact about how National Public Radio (NPR), gets its funding.
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which manages NPR, reported that they received an additional $50 million in federal funding support. This was due to Congress passing the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2022.
Did you get it? Good.
Shinzo Abe’s assassination shocked the Japanese people and the rest of the world. Shinzo Abe was Japan’s longest serving Prime Minister and an important ally in fighting against communist regimes in North Korea and China. A number of world leaders issued statements in his memory, expressing sadness at the loss and making condolences to him.
But there were also two people who made comments that many found disgusting. One was from President Joe Biden who decided to turn Abe’s death into a chance at pushing anti-gun narratives.

The other was from NPR, which first posted a tweet calling Abe a “divisive arch-conservative” but soon deleted it.
Don’t forget about what @NPR is: Communists.

But NPR didn’t delete it because they felt shame over their hyper-partisan tweet about a slain man. They just needed to reword it so that Abe came off even worse by using buzzwords that they typically associate with white supremacists, “ultranationalist.” Now he’s not just a political figure that opposed the left in his country, but now he’s a crazed xenophobe.
Shinzo Abe was an ultranationalist and former prime minister of Japan, who was also killed in a rally.

Let me remind you, CPB received over half a million dollars from the government.
As you’re probably aware, this is the first time NPR exposed itself as a hyper-partisan propaganda organization. RedState’s Tuesday report revealed that NPR has been becoming more leftist in recent years. The organization had a long-standing tradition of reading and signing the Declaration of Independence each July 4, which was in place for more than 30 years. This was scrapped this year so that one of its hosts could discuss “equality” with all the partisan sentiments you would expect.
We are breaking with tradition this July Fourth. An alternative to reading the Declaration of Independence @NPRinskeepExamines what equality has and means in this document. Important segment about our pastAnd future…produced by @marcarivers and @bgordemer https://t.co/MxlgNaWpC1

Our federal government gives $525million to the parent station. Some of this money is donated to NPR.
Jarrett Stepman from the Daily Signal pointed out that NPR allowed its reporters open bias back in 2021. This enabled them to make use of NPR as an activist platform.
NPR granted its journalists permission to participate in direct activism in 2021. NPR has expressed concern about websites that cover conservative issues and rely on round-the-clock programming that is overwhelmingly focused on race or gender.
This new programming can be downright hilarious. NPR did a segment about decolonizing fitness. It recently ran a piece about how Americans can “cope” with hearing stories about the war in Ukraine.
More than half a million dollars
Funny enough, the station got over $1 million in a grant in May toward its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion work, but hilariously, leftists are going to leftist, and the more focus they put on its “diversity” the more its woke employees think NPR is racist. Meaning that, like most places that go woke, it’ll eventually eat itself alive.
Let’s hope that this includes going broke.
NPR must not become a propaganda machine for western radical left and hyper-partisan. The rest of America doesn’t, and our money shouldn’t be shoveled into a furnace like NPR.
