NPR's xenophobia

xenophobia, n. : "hatred or fear of foreigners or strangers or of their politics or culture"  That World Dictionary definition fits National Public Radio's   senior vice president for fund raising Ron Schiller, now at the Aspen Institute   to a "T" (pardon the pun):  
 Here is what Mr. Schiller said about the Tea Party: 
--"The Tea Party is fanatically involved in people's personal lives and very fundamental Christian--I wouldn't even call it Christian. It's this weird evangelical kind of move."
--"Tea Party people" aren't "just Islamaphobic, but really xenophobic, I mean basically they are, they believe in sort of white, middle-America gun-toting. I mean, it's scary. They're seriously racist, racist people."

This is yet another hilarious example of the Left behaving as they believe "strangers"  i.e. the Great American Unwashed, behave.  Trouble is, the vast majority of Tea Party folks have been far more polite and civilized than say, the "mostly white" protesters in Wisconsin.
