For those of you not into the latest Hollywood news, Justin Bieber has been accused of assaulting one of the paparazzi. The photographer claims that the singer hit him after he took photos of Bieber and his girlfriend. The police are investigating. But Beiber should fear not because he is being defended by a "rich and famous" fellow celebrity. Yes, folks, Bill O'Reilly, who suffered the slings and arrows of the evil press when he was accused of sexual harassment, asks, in his latest column, "is there any justice for Justin?" The column is instructive and amusing as it underscores bully Bill's hypocrisy. While rationalizing what could be bullying behavior on the part of Bieber, bully Bill attacks an unknown "Occupy" protester for doing, apparently, what Bill's paid stalker, Jesse T Watters does all the time. And while Bill's kinky "Caribbean Shower" fantasies are public record, this column reveals that Bill also has no problem with fantasies involving violence. Paging Dr. Ablow?
Without any findings on the part of the police, Bill assures us that the case probably involves "yet another shakedown generated by a loser and his sleazy attorney who will game the system hoping Bieber will throw some money at them in order to make the annoyance go away." (Hmmm, is Bill actually talking about something in his past?) He then launched into a rant that is truly ROFLMAO worthy in it's hypocrisy: "But if you really look at what's happening, it's despicable. Legalized extortion and blackmail are now epidemics in America. Famous people are routinely slandered, libeled, followed and menaced in public. And there's little they can do about it. If you are a public figure and/or have money, you are a huge target and will get little sympathy from the court or from the court of public opinion. There are now legions of lawyers who will file lawsuits against famous and rich people for just about anything. Lawsuits cost money to defend, and the media are overjoyed to publicize any and all alleged "transgressions..." (Bill is identifying with Bieber? Awwww, poor Bill)
Bill, who obviously is having some trouble getting over his encounter with an alleged "Occupy" protester in NY City, described the incident and how he wished that Bieber had been his wing man, that night "so he could have smacked down that guy." (So Bill wants Bieber to beat up people who get in Bill's way?) Bill then engaged in more violent fantasy, this time involving himself: "I guess I could have done it, but the line of attorneys responding would have stretched from Broadway to Michigan." (Putting a Freudian "spin" on he who supposedly doesn't spin, one isn't surprised at the ideation given that his father was physically abusive.")
O'Reilly finished with a plea for reform of the justice system and justice for Bieber: "We absolutely need tort reform in this country, and we need to adopt a brand-new slogan, as well: "Free Justin Bieber."
And it's ironic, don't ya think, that Bill whines about how "famous people are "routinely slandered" and "libeled" when that's what he does on a regular basis. The family of the murdered abortion provider, Dr. George Tiller can attest to that. And funny, Bill had no problem with his producer stalking and menacing a young female reporter who dared to write about Bill's hypocrisy.
So Bill, if you're a "target" just because you're a legend in your own mind, cry me a river!
