More Bill O'Reilly Nazi References - With Consequences?

Reported by Priscilla - January 27, 2011 -

Bill O'Reilly was part of the "pro-life" campaign to demonize Dr. George Tiller, a man who performed legal and safe late term abortions. Tiller was eventually murdered as a result of a climate of hatred generated (as noted in the MSNBC documentary "The Assassination of Dr. Tiller) by folks like Bill O'Reilly. In attacking Dr. Tiller, O'Reilly went the Nazi route on two occasions. On June 8th, 2005 he said that Tiller was "guilty of Nazi stuff" and on November 9th, 2006, he added Nazis to other totalitarian regimes in his description of Tiller: "This is the kind of stuff happened in Mao's China, Hitler's Germany, Stalin's Soviet Union." He never apologized for these incendiary comments. He never, as he did last night, attempt to explain "context" (and there is none!). In fact, he vilified his critics as "pro-abortion zealots," "Fox News haters," "the far left." We know the ending to this story. Tiller was assassinated by somebody who held the same *anti-choice views as Bill O'Reilly who, subsequently, received a "Courage Award" from the "hate group," "Family Research Council," for his relentless efforts, on national media, to reinforce the hatred- efforts which included Nazi analogies. And to think that he accused journalist Joan Walsh of having blood on her hands. What say you, Bill O'Reilly?

Addendum: BTW, I have been accused, by a Bill O'Reilly fan, of being a hate monger for my commentary about how Bill O'Reilly and Dr. Tiller's assassin shared the same "pro-life" beliefs about how Dr. Tiller was a "baby killer." Bill O'Reilly and Scott Roeder believe that abortion is "murder". Apart from pulling a trigger, O'Reilly's belief system is the same as Scott Roeder's. Bill O'Reilly maintained that Tiller was a "baby killer." So did Scott Roeder. To say that Bill O'Reilly is the victim of hate is truly Orwellian. But such is the mindset of Bill O'Reilly's "pro-life" fan club!

*Correction - as noted by the Bill O'Reilly fan club, "views" are a broad category. As explained above, O'Reilly and Roeder believed that Tiller was "murdered" "babies." Tiller then was "murdered."
