According to an online review written by NPR's Ella Taylor, Brandon Darby, the former leftist who went to the FBI when his group built Molotov cocktails to firebomb attendees at the 2008 Republican convention in Minneapolis is a "rat" who followed his orders slavishly, Tim Graham reported at Newsbusters Saturday.
Apparently, Graham said, "the government-funded radio 'objective news' operation thinks activists who cooperate with the government in stopping violence are easily defined as 'rats.'”
"Like almost everyone else in the crowd of fellow travelers and detractors who come out for and against him — sometimes both — Darby is more unreliable narrator than cynic. Certainly he comes across as a grandiose believer in his own propaganda, whether as the founder of the militant grass-roots aid movement Common Ground, created as a response to support survivors of Hurricane Katrina, or as the disillusioned turncoat and FBI plant who egged on, then turned in a group of young hotheads plotting to disrupt the 2008 Republican Convention in Minneapolis," Taylor wrote in her review, titled "Meet Brandon Darby, Grass-Roots Activist (And FBI Rat)."
"How Darby got from A to B is a both a shorter journey than you might imagine and a longer one. Meltzer, a filmmaker with an inquisitive nose for complexity and contradiction, spends just enough time on Darby's Texas childhood and distant-but-domineering dad to conclude that they pretty much programmed him for the role of rescuer — and for the crippling 50-50 ambivalence toward authority that made him first a dissident leader and then a slavish follower of FBI orders," she added.
In Taylor's opinion, Darby didn't simply cooperate with the FBI, he was a "slavish follower" who apparently did the unthinkable by stopping the murder of Republicans.
Graham went on to say the taxpayer-funded NPR "couldn’t find a 'slavish follower' of Obama’s with both hands."
He also said Darby confronted one of the perpetrators of the 2008 attempt on HuffPost Live, Breitbart.com said.
According to Fox News, Darby -- who said nothing the mainstream media reported at the time was accurate -- was "inundated" with death threats, and called a traitor by other liberals.
But, Graham said, NPR had no harsh words for them, simply calling them "hamfisted" amateurs.
"If they were real terrorist professionals, then what, NPR?" Graham asked.
