“Limbaugh, Beck, O’Reilly, all of ‘em, they are like a cancer spreading ignorance and hate...They’ve convinced folks that immigrants are the problem, not corporations that fail to pay a living wage or a broken health care system...”
This of course has Billo Completely LIVID.
After playing the clip of the "defamatory and outrageous" scene, O'Reilly slammed Dick Wolf as a "coward" and a "liar" before playing a montage of clips demonstrating his past defenses of "poor people who only want a better life." O'Reilly went on to explain that his "beef" isn't with illegal immigrants themselves, but rather with the federal government for doing little to control immigration and the "violent aliens who wreak havoc once they get here." He concluded by chastising Wolf for "distorting and exploiting" the issue of illegal immigration.
More directly from Fox:
If you watch "The Factor" you know my beef is with the federal government not controlling illegal immigration and with violent aliens who wreak havoc once they get here.
Again, Dick Wolf, the executive producer of "Law & Order," is a despicable human being for distorting and exploiting this very complicated situation.
I mean, enough is enough with these network pinheads who shove propaganda down our throats under the guise of entertainment. Patriotic Americans can debate illegal immigration respectfully. No one on "The Factor" has been allowed to demonize any innocent human being, and it is partially because of this program that the border fence was finally put up so that there could be some kind of responsible regulation about who comes into America.
I can't tell you how angry I am that this "Law & Order" thing happened, and it's no accident it happened on NBC, which is propaganda central in the USA. It's also the lowest-rated network.
Ok, well that clears everything up doesn't it. O'Reilly didn't attack immigrants - he just attacks the Government that didn't do enough about Illigal Immigrants. Yeah. Ok.
If Government isn't doing it, doesn't that suggest that O'Reilly supports individual citizens taking things into their own hands ala The so-called "Minutemen"?
Anybody remember this knock-down drag out about between O'Reilly and Geraldo Rivera over a Drunk Driver/Illegal Immigrant Issue?
Geraldo: Don't obscure a tragedy to make a cheap political point.
Geraldo also pointed out that the drivers previous arrests and convictions were non-violent (being drunk in public twice, and one victimless DUI - in Chesapeake - and there was no evidence of "Moral Turpitude" in any of these cases, hence Ramos was not targeted for deportation) - he was able to make these statements with authority because he - unlike O'Reilly - is a lawyer and sometimes actually knows what he's talking about.
Also...Geraldo: Illegal Immigrants commit crimes at a lower percentage than the general population
Billo: You want Anarchy!! You want Anarchy with Open Borders!
Meanwhiie Glenn Beck is having his own mini-meltdown over his own statements being thrown back at him via the TEEVEEE as well...
Beck: “where is the evidence for inciting any violence? Show it to me.”
Where's the Evidence? How 'bout the following which I most recently posted when Dana Perino claimed "Bush never had a Terrorist Attack"...
We've had this guy allegedly shoot and kill an OB/GYN in order to make a religous and political point about the "Santity of Life": (A Violent crime committed against someone that Bill O'Reilly personally Railed against FOR YEARS!)
Or this guy who walked into a Unitarian Church in Knoxville Tennesse and shot 4 people - killing 2 of them - because they were, in his opinion, too "Liberal"? (Based on recommendations he got from frequent Bill O'Reilly Guest - Bernie Goldberg)
From Adkisson's "Note":"Know this if nothing else: This was a hate crime. I hate the damn left-wing liberals. There is a vast left-wing conspiracy in this country & these liberals are working together to attack every decent & honorable institution in the nation, trying to turn this country into a communist state. Shame on them....
Also...[Police] seized three books from Adkisson’s home, including “The O’Reilly Factor,” by television commentator Bill O’Reilly; “Liberalism is a Mental Disorder,” by radio personality Michael Savage; and “Let Freedom Ring,” by political pundit Sean Hannity
Or this guy who shot up the Holocaust Museum in Washington killing a security guard who was opening the door for him... (A guy who also thought "Obama is a KENYAN!" - where could he have heard that from?)
Or this guy who killed three Pittsburgh Police Officers either because he was frustrated with his girlfriend or "Obama Wants to Take Away My Guns" - or both.
Is it really that ridiculous that a story could be written linking the Loud and Inflammatory Rhetoric of people like Beck and O'Reilly with a murderous rampage?
No, It's ridiculous that it's taken this long for Hollywood to notice and create a MADE-UP story about it...
If these Conservatives really thought there was no link between inflammatory comments and actual violent events - why do they attack RAP MUSIC the way that the do - directly linking their words to action like the Killings at Virginia Tech?
This has been naturally going on for years particularly with the music of Ice T with his Rock band Bodycount when they released the Social-Commentary song "Cop Killer"?
Also another irony, the actor who John Larroqutte was talking to on Law and Order was Ice T playing his long-standing role on that show as a Cop!
Update I want to address Beck's attempt to defend himself by pointing out that he was accused of inspiring the Murder of a Census Worker who in turn it was discovered had simply committed suicide. You could say this is simply the case of one poor desperate man who wanted to leave his family some insurance money - but you also have to look at How he choose to do that which was to create a scenario which seemed in his mind the most likely area where he - a Federal Employee - might be attacked and harmed. In the middle of appalachia, stripped naked with the word "FED" written on his chest.
Why wouldn't people take a close look at rabid anti-Government sentiment which is famed to brew strong in that area when you have Beck making statements like this at the time...
And this too...
With all that why might somebody find if believeable that anyone who works for the Government or President Obama think that there might people out there "gunning for them"?
Frankly, it's lot more plausible that the cockamamie story this chick came up with?
