O'Reilly Wants Pentagon To Punish San Francisco

Reported by Deborah - March 11, 2006

Bill O'Reilly thinks Fleet Week, an annual San Francisco event, should be moved to another location claiming that the city's leaders have been "hostile" to the Military and don't deserve the revenue because they voted against making the USS. Iowa a museum and banned military recruitment on campuses. 3/9/06

O'Reilly started the segment next to a graphic of the Golden Gate Bridge with a large dollar sign in the sky with a biased banner reading MILITARY MOOLAH.

Thomas McIlnerney joined Bill in the call to punish the city. He called San Francisco's behavior " deplorable, unpatriotic and aiding Islamofascists".

O'Reilly acknowledged that San Francisco is free to believe that the Military violates the rights of gays but if San Francisco "spits in the eye" of the Military then they shouldn't benefit from Fleet Week. MCIlnerney said that there are some nice people in San Francisco but they have some "left wing freak nuts." O'Reilly quickly added " They're in charge."

When MCIlerney suggested that the American people should find other places to spend their money threatening a boycott, O'Reilly quickly objected, innocently suggesting that he couldn't hurt good people that way adding "I can't even go there because they signed a resolution demanding that FOX fire me." MCIlerney laughed heartily saying,"They're not going to fire our franchise player."

Later in the show O'Reilly praised the Washington Post for acknowledging that the 'Boycott France' campaign really hurt the country. He was especially pleased that they gave him credit by name for starting the boycott. Guess it doesn't matter if French people were hurt. If somehow Fleet Week is moved and San Francisco Tourism suffers, Bill O'Reilly will be more than happy to take the credit.
