O'Reilly Threatens Vermont

Reported by Deborah - January 14, 2006

Bill O'Reilly visited John Kasich on Heartland tonight to talk about his recent crusade to get the Vermont Judge removed because he gave a light sentence to a man who sexually assualted a young girl repeatedly over several years. O'Reilly let it be known that if Judge Cashman is not removed, Vermont will experience "the biggest trouble in their history." 1/14/05

O'Reilly declared that if Cashman stays on the bench, the State of Vermont will never recover and will be have a lasting stigma. Then he told Kasich,"I don't think this could happen in Ohio." Kasich agreed claiming that the Judge "would be run out of town" in his state.

O'Reilly accused the Vermont media, with the exception of Burlington, of biased coverage naming specifically the towns of Bennington and Rutland. He then explained that Northern Vermont is Conservative while the Southern portion is Liberal. He added, " The state is protective of it's own. We can't have it! Vermont must know that they're in the United States of America." O'Reilly made a point of mentioning that Vermont's economy is dependant on tourism and the maple syrup industry which would be hurt of Americans get too angry.

comment:Although the citizens of Vermont did not vote this judge into office, Bill O'Reilly intends to make them responsible for removing him. It doesn't matter to O'Reilly that his intended campaign to smear the state and boycott their products would hurt the hard working families living there.

On ,1/6/06, when this story was breaking, John Gibson said that Judge Cashman's actions were "Oh so Ben and Jerry's" Later in his commentary he added, "The sound you hear is Howard Dean applauding." So there is no doubt that FOX is using this story to smear Liberal Democrats. Guess the little elves in the Factor Gear factory are churning out Boycott Vermont bumper stickers with pictures of Ben &Jerry and Howard Dean in the left hand corners.
