NPR highlights lefty Nutcracker


National Public Radio is in the fight of its life. Republicans on Capitol Hill are threatening to defund the taxpayer-supported network. How does NPR respond? By continuing to step in it.

On Saturday's Weekend Edition newsmagazine, NPR broadcast a story about a San Francisco holiday production, "The Revolutionary Nutcracker Sweetie," described as a performance "decorated with a grab-bag of liberal political causes."

NPR's reporter, who once ran to the left of Nancy Pelosi, said, "
There's a snow dance where ice caps melt in the background....The Sugar Plum fairy battles the Mouse King of British Petroleum....And Code Pink makes a guest appearance in the triumphant anti-war dance."

No, it's not your typical Nutcracker ballet. Mr. and Mrs. McGreed have a gay son decked out  in a Che Guevara T-shirt and a pink Mohawk. Clara is an illegal immigrant maid.

Your tax dollars at work.

The Saturday NPR program also spent several minutes discussing agnostic holidays.
