Bill O’Reilly Smears Nancy Pelosi For Expression Of Faith At Catholic Event

Reported by Priscilla - June 3, 2010 -

Bill O’Reilly is a conservative Catholic who has no problem with bearing false witness. And while he might not have committed adultery, the sexual harassment charges he faced indicate that he was engaging in “impure thoughts.” But as with many conservative Catholics, he is adamantly opposed to abortion; but not as concerned about “social justice” which is also a tenet of the Catholic Church. As with many conservative Catholics, he is not a fan of Nancy Pelosi whose support of abortion rights has earned her the enmity of many in the Catholic and non Catholic anti-choice community. Prior to Dr. Tiller's murder, Bill was quite outspoken in his condemnation of abortion and anyone or anything connected to it; but since Tiller's murder, Bill has been a little more circumspect about his feelings. However, he still manages to provide a shout out to his fellow anti-choice zealots albeit in a much more subtle way. And what better way to validate the feelings of and provide a shout out to his fellow travelers than to make one of their enemies a “pinhead” in his “pinheads and patriots” – a propaganda segment which provides a dichotomy of good and bad couched in light hearted “humor.” Tuesday night, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was given this “award” for statements which Bill’s pals found very distressing.

At a recent “Catholic Community Conference” in Washington, DC, Pelosi talked about how she is always asked about her “favorite” things. She responded that her favorite word is “the word” as expressed in Scripture. She said “That Word is, we have to give voice to what that means in terms of public policy that would be in keeping with the values of the Word…” She continued that she thought the Word is beautiful and that because she believes that Christ will come again, “we have to make sure we're prepared to answer in this life, or otherwise, as to how we have measured up.” After she said these words about keeping policies in line with Christ’s teachings, the right wing anti-choice types had their chastity belts in a bunch. Here’s a classic example from “Weasel Zippers” - Good Grief: Pro-Baby Killing, Godless Liberal Nancy Pelosi Says She’s Pursuing Policies “In Keeping With the Values of Jesus Christ”…(Ah, that old “baby killing” phrase so beloved by Bill O’Reilly!)

Anyway, after Bill gave the rock group “Kiss” a “patriot” award because they are contributing some of their profits to Bill’s charity, “The Wounded Warrior Project,” he proceeded to smear Pelosi as a “pinhead.” Without noting that Pelosi was speaking to Catholics, he said that Nancy Pelosi is now “sermonizing about the word of God.” (As opposed to bloviating and accusing a Doctor of being a killer?) Bill looked shocked as he began the video of Pelosi’s remarks. After the video of her non controversial (cept for Bill & pals) commentary, Bill winced and said, “interesting and we have a word here as well – pinhead.”

Comment: I have three words for you Bill and the first one is “go” and the last one is “yourself.”
