I despise Bill O'Reilly  

Sunday, August 3, 2008

Now, I do have a confession. I watch his show about every other day. Granted, not all the way through- I might have an aneurysm, and that's not good.

Any who. I've been on vacation (that's right, vacation. Not vaca. That's not a word), and I have missed a lot of stuff. So coming back, I log onto my computer, go to Newsvine after a long withdrawal, and notice something that doesn't surprise me, but rather infuriates me. Bill O'Reilly is mad... at liberals. GET. OUT. Particularly Al Gore. I'm not the biggest Al Gore fan. Not all of us liberal, atheist, feminist, environmentalist anti authoritarians follow his every word. I don't know what it is. I think it's his face. I just want to fix it. I don't know how. But, I digress.

It appears that Bill O'Reilly is mad at Al Gore, a liberal Democrat, for attending a liberal function. Shock! Next thing you know, I'm going to get catcalled for walking down the pantyliner aisle (What! I'm not suppose to be there!?!?!) Vice President Al Gore attended a meeting held by Netroots Nation which is somehow related to Daily Kos. Maybe I'm a bad liberal; but I have never heard of them. So I had to get acquainted with them, by doing some crazy Google searching, and their crazy "feud" with that crazy Irish man with his own show on Fox. What? Are you telling me there are more than one? Dammit!

So here's the feud: Daily Kos apparently didn't say such nice things about Tony Snow when he died. The gist that I took away from the blogs was that,yes, it is sad when someone dies of cancer especially when they leave behind a family, but just because someone dies does not mean they get a free a pass. The writers of the article realize that many in the Conservative "blogosphere" are sad that Snow died, even though many of them have never met the man or even in the same timezone, but conservative should not expect everyone to feel the same.

Yeah, so... I don't understand the big deal. This is probably because I'm the type of person who hates when people make a big deal out of everyday things. People die everyday. Every second. And the only people who are really troubled by it are friends and family. Maybe even a passerby. But don't expect me to have the same reaction to some one's death as you do. When I go word of Mr. Snow's death, I thought it was and still is a terrible time for his family, but you know what, I changed the channel to Nickelodeon. Call me callous, but I didn't even like him. Apathy is the only thing I could feel towards that news. Unlike with Jerry Falwell's death... which I had to subdue every ounce of me from throwing confetti in the air and eating cake.

But back to O'Reilly. Here's his response to Al Gore:
Al Gore now is done. He’s done. Ok. He is not a man of respect, he doesn’t have any judgment. The fact that he went to this thing is the same as if he stepped into the Klan gathering. It’s the same. No difference. None. K, he loses all credibility with me. All credibility.
Really?First, am I really suppose to believe that O'Reilly had any respect for Gore? If your inner circle includes Laura Ingram and Michelle Malkin, then no, you don't have any respect for Gore.
Unfortunately, that's not the bad part. He compares a liberal blog group thing-still don't know what they are- to two of the most hateful, reviled, fearmongering groups in recent memory and that's me being nice. I know Tony was a friend of his, but even if my friend died and some one I know was apathetic towards that person death, those remarks are not warranted. By the way, didn't we as a species decided that whenever you bring up Nazism or Hitler you automatically lose the argument? Check mate, Bill!!!

It almost repetitive to even state this but: Nazism and the KKK will never and can never be on the same level playing field as a liberal blog!!! You see that blog... Not an over arching political faction that killed millions. Not Racist bigots who lynch people and cause a gigantic wedge in the South. A Blog. Grated, a popular one; but still a blog. Just in case you not sure, read Elie Wiesel's Night or talk to any person of color in the South over 60. You, Bill, are a tool. And not the band... TOOL is awesome.

Also, if anyone is thinking the same way I am think, not only is O'Reilly a tool, but a hypocrite. I know for a fact that McCain has been on his show; and I also know that Bill isn't exactly mean when McCain is on or even mentioned. So why is that Al Gore can show up at a liberal function and be crucified by O'Reilly. But McCain can do things like, oh I don't know, seek the approval of the Religious Right and in particular John Hagee and everything is fine. I know that McCain has rejected his endorsement; but this is only after he had actively sought it and the public was making an uproar after people realized how crazy Hagee was/is.
Don't remember some of the things Hagee has said or wrote? Don't worry... I don't blame you.

I believe that the Hurricane Katrina was, in fact, the judgment of God against the city of New Orleans...I believe that New Orleans had a level of sin that was offensive to God, and they are -- were recipients of the judgment of God for that...There was to be a homosexual parade there on the Monday that the Katrina came. And the promise of that parade was that it was going to reach a level of sexuality never demonstrated before in any of the other Gay Pride parades.... The Bible teaches that when you violate the law of God, that God brings punishment sometimes before the day of judgment.

The military will have difficultly recruiting healthy and strong heterosexuals for combat purposes. Why? Fighting in combat with a man in your fox hole that has AIDS or is HIV positive is double jeopardy.

Do you know the diffence between a woman with PMS and a snarling Doberman pinscher? The answer is lipstick. Do you know the difference between a terrorist and a woman with PMS? You can negotiate with a terrorist.

Only a Spirit-filled woman can submit to her husband's lead. It is the natural desire of a woman to lead through feminine manipulation of the man...Fallen women will try to dominate the marriage. The man has the God-given role to be the loving leader of the home.
Oh Hagee! You and your misogyny and homophobia. When will it stop? Seriously... when will it?
So yeah, Hagee and those who ally themselves are able to go on TV all day without criticism, but you go to other side of the ideological grid and people bring out the pitchfork and torches. So in the case of O'Reilly, it's all relative. And as much as I hate relativism [against popular belief, most non-believers hate relativism], that's the only conclusion I have for O'Reilly and his decrepit reasoning. I don't care if you were once a teacher... a lot of teachers suck, you know!

    Every time BillO denounces Daily Kos, we get an infusion of new readers. Meanwhile his audience keeps dropping. He's a bigger tool than even you suppose.

    Great blog style. You should come over and join us at DK now. The Klan gatherings are few and non-disruptive.
