O'Reilly compares MoveOn and "Soros-Lewis mob" to Nazi figure

Reported by Chrish - March 14, 2007 -

In his Talking Points Memo last night 3/12/07 Bill O'Reilly ripped Democrats, George Soros, MoveOn.org, Peter Lewis and the ever-present "far-left." In another classic case of projection he said

"These people use propaganda techniques perfected by Dr. Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi minister of information -- they lie, distort, defame all the time."
With video.

Independent O'Reilly says

"The Soros-Lewis mob despises FOX News because we have their number and report on them accurately. They use the MoveOn Web site to smear this network and others with whom they disagree.

These people use propaganda techniques perfected by Dr. Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi minister of information -- they lie, distort, defame all the time.

So it's not surprising that MoveOn objected to a debate sponsored by FOX News and the Nevada Democratic Party. MoveOn immediately tried to boycott the August event and persuaded John Edwards to drop out.

That was simply stupid."

Says you.

O'Reilly played video of the remarks that Roger Ailes made last Thursday night that were the last straw for Nevada Senator Harry Reid (who had already been having second thoughts about the debate after being urged by over a quarter of a million petition signers to rethink the hosting arrangement). The O'Reilly said of the Senator

"... Senator Harry Reid, the Democrat from Nevada, declared the joke a smear against Obama, saying, "We cannot, as good Democrats, put our party in a position to defend such comments."

Now Reid is either very dense or very disingenuous. There's no middle ground.

And so the debate has now been cancelled. The Soros-MoveOn cabal believe this is a major victory for them, but once again they're wrong. The FOX News Channel has been fair to the Democratic Party and will continue to be fair."

Oh puh-leeeze. FOX News hosts, anchors, and guests slam, denigrate, mock, ridicule, badger and diminish Democrats daily, and we've got over 8,000 incidents documented right here - and we can't nearly document it all. Alternatively, they regularly overlook Republican scandals and incompetence, coddle and pander to Republican guests, and dismiss major stories as politicizing by the phantom liberal media.

He wraps up:

"And the truth is that MoveOn is hurting the Democratic Party. They have succeeded in buying some politicians and media people, but clear thinking Americans understand radical lunacy and dishonest tactics when they see them. And that what is what the Soros-Lewis MoveOn cabal specialize in."

Er, no, that's why so many people signed on to keep you from manipulating a Democratic debate.

"Shame, shame on Senator Reid for supporting that"

Quick, when is the last time O'Reilly said "shame, shame" about a Republican?

A search of the FOX News website using "O'Reilly, shame" brings up the usual suspects: Vermont, the New York Times, the New School, Florida prosecutor Brad King ("People Who Help Child Rapists"), the parents of the coolest little girl on the Internet, and abortion doctor George Tiller. No Walter Reed. No Katrina response. No Jack Abramoff. None of the numerous Republican scandals and screw-ups merited a "shame shame" from the big BOR - just another example of the different treatment for Democrats from FOX.

Included within the TPM was video of John Kerry saying he wishes he had come on FOX during the 2004 campaign. 1. Since when does O'Reilly believe, never mind highlight, anything Kerry says? They've been saving that video for just such a moment as this. 2. Kerry is a fool. He was slammed and mocked and distorted mercilessly by FOX and they aided and abetted the Swift Boat Liars by giving them repeated exposure.

O'Reilly also featured two Democrats, Lanny Davis and Laura Schwartz, who agreed that it was not a good move for the Nevada Democrats to cancel the debate.

Of course there will be people on both sides who disagree with any decision. O'Reilly AGAIN proved our point by selecting guests who support his position to "prove" his view is the correct one.
