Bill O'Reilly Inspires A Weekend Of Hate In Kansas

Reported by Deborah - January 18, 2007 -

Bill O'Reilly , ultimate self promoter, has been quiet about the Operation Rescue demonstration, he inspired, planned for this weekend in Kansas. The press release headline posted on Christian News Wire states, " Christians Answer O'Reilly's Call For Protests At Late Term Abortion Mill". O'Reilly seems to love creating angry division but doesn't want to be connected with the messy results that might soil the Daddy America image he has worked to cultivate.

O'Reilly has done a series of attack segments on George Tiller who operates a clinic in Wichita, Kansas. Operation Rescue claims that he has been the inspiration behind this protest. This O'Reilly quote is plastered on their website next to a photo of their hero.

“You know, I’ve been covering the news in America for 30 years and this Kansas situation is the worst thing I’ve ever seen…Americans cannot turn away from this; cannot ignore it. There should be thousands of people demonstrating outside Tiller’s abortion clinic in Wichita.” -Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly

An AP report in the Witchita Eagle
reports that Operation Rescue's leader Troy Newman is not appreciated by the other pro life organizations in Kansas because of his aggressive tactics.

"Newman's so-called "truth trucks," emblazoned with photos of aborted fetuses, almost have become a hallmark of Operation Rescue. And his group routinely pickets the homes of Tiller's employees and the businesses that supply the clinic."

"I am not here to be nice. I am not here to make friends. I came here single focused," Newman said. "I am not a radical, but the actions I do certainly seem more radical in the Midwest."

While Bill O'Reilly is basking in the attention from his Colbert meeting tonight, he will be avoiding the admiration and attention offered to him from Operation Rescue. Why doesn't he want to share that with " the folks"?
