Bill O'Reilly could not bring himself to put aside his crusade against the left for even one day to allow all of us, united, to process the senseless tragedy at Virginia Tech. O'Reilly and Bernard Goldberg thought it was perfectly fine to connect Rosie O'Donnell and Liberals to the tragic event in a negative way. The slurs continued with Goldberg explaining his "Fox Derangement Syndrome" caused by FNC's fair and balanced policies.
O'Reilly showed a clip of Rosie O'Donnell discussing the need for stricter gun laws for non hunting weapons. Goldberg in a nasty tone claimed that "three seconds after the last shot was fired" liberals were talking about gun control. Then he made it seem like conservatives were being victimized because they want everyone to have guns to defend themselves not just the lunatics. Then he just kept rolling on talking about the " elites" who reject SUV's but fly in jets and the usual blah blah.
Goldberg was supposed to be plugging his new book, Crazies On The Left Of Me, Wimps On The Right: How One Side Lost It's Mind and the Other Lost It's Nerve. Goldberg did not spend much time on the " wimps to his right". When he mentioned the excessive spending from the right who claim to be against big government, BOR quickly diverted him with,
" That's because of the War on Terror and Compassionate Conservatism"
Goldberg also expressed disapproval of Ann Coulter's Jersey Girl and John Edwards/Faggot remarks. Again O'Reilly redirected with,
" How do conservatives stand up when the media is 80% liberal?"
Goldberg then went into his theory of the " Fox Derangement Syndrome" claiming that liberals are driven nuts by conservatives and liberals debating on FOX. Feeding O'Reilly's paranoia, he claimed liberals " think you're the Anti-Christ" and " foam at the mouth". Goldberg continued to feed BOR's hungry ego monster. " Compared to Rush Limbaugh, you're Walter Mondale"
O'Reilly was eating it up and asked, " Why do they hate me?" " Because you're successful," Bernie stroked the wounded warrior and then comforted him with, " Feel sorry for these people. They're totally out of whack."
