O'Reilly Invites Mass Murder

Reported by Judy - November 11, 2005

Like some looney right-wing preacher calling down the wrath of God, Bill O'Reilly has invited al Qaeda to attack San Francisco because voters there approved a measure against allowing military recruiters in schools. Oh sure, next week he will weasel his way out of it and say, "Hey, it's just radio, I was exaggerating." That should not fly this time. What O'Reilly did was invite the mass murder of his fellow Americans. He should be fired.

O'Reilly was foaming at the mouth Tuesday on his nationally syndicated radio show as San Francisco residents were voting on proposals to keep military recruiters out of public schools and to ban hand guns in the city. Media Matters has the audio, but here is what this reckless right-wing fool said:

" Hey, you know, if you want to ban military recruiting, fine, but I'm not going to give you another nickel of federal money. You know, if I'm the president of the United States, I walk right into Union Square, I set up my little presidential podium, and I say, 'Listen, citizens of San Francisco, if you vote against military recruiting, you're not going to get another nickel in federal funds. Fine. You want to be your own country? Go right ahead.'

"And if Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead."

In its story in Friday's editions (November 11, 2005) the San Francisco Chronicle made light of the matter, noting that if al Qaeda blew up Coit Tower, it likely would kill only tourists.

O'Really, however, was not positing that al Qaeda blow up only the tower. He insinuated that the entire city should be left open to terrorist attack. That's not funny.

This is worse than O'Reilly saying that he wished United Nations' headquarters would be flooded and he wouldn't rescue the people there.

This is worse than Pat Robertson saying the leader of Venezuela should be assassinated.

This is worse than John Gibson wishing a terrorist attack on Paris.

This is inviting the nation's enemies to murder thousands of Americans.

It's time for O'Reilly to go.
