A PBS staff attorney was caught on video calling for children of Republicans to be put in “reeducation camps” as retribution against supporters of President Trump.

“We go for all the Republican voters, and Homeland Security will take their children away. … We’ll put them into the reeducation camps,” principal counsel for The Public Broadcasting Service Micahel Beller said, according to Project Veritas, which published the video on Tuesday.

“They’re nice,” Beller said. “They have Sesame Street characters in the classrooms, and they watch PBS all day.”

“Kids who are growing up, knowing nothing but Trump for four years, you’ve got to wonder what they’re going to be like. They’ll be raising a generation of intolerant, horrible people — horrible kids,” Beller added.

Beller also called for people to “go to the White House and throw Molotov cocktails” in the event President-elect Joe Biden didn’t win the election in November.

He also expressed joy that the coronavirus was spreading in states where the president saw high approval, saying people won’t go to the polls to vote for Trump.

“What’s great is that COVID is spiking in all the red states right now. So that’s great. 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 said. “Americans are so f---ing dumb. You know, most people are dumb.”

Journalist Matthew Keys posted on Twitter that Beller has been fired from his post at the network, which the Washington Examiner is working to confirm.

"There is no place for hateful rhetoric at PBS, and this individual’s views in no way reflect our values or opinions," a PBS spokesperson reportedly said in a statement to Keys.
