When the Puget Sound Joint Terrorism Task Force, working with the Dept. of State, placed ads on Seattle buses which featured photos of wanted terrorists, Congressman Jim McDermott objected. He felt that because all the photos ("Faces of Global Terrorism") were of Muslims, the campaign was "offensive to Muslims and ethnic minorities and encourages racial profiling." In a letter to the FBI, he suggested that these ads could "exacerbate" hate crimes against these minorities. As a result of criticism from "politicians, advocacy groups, and the public," in addition to Rep. McDermott, the photo ads will be taken down. As this has caused quite the stir in the Islamophobic community, (One headline -"McDermott, Terrorists Win in Seattle"), it's not surprising that the possibly Islamophobic Bill O'Reilly brought it up with his equally bigoted boy toy, Dennis Miller during this week's "Miller Time."After Bill claimed that the FBI caved (the Task Force made the decision), Miller launched into a vile and disgusting attack on Rep. McDermott - an attack that included a "joke" about anal rape with a colonoscope.
Miller began the attack: "McDermott is one of the biggest morons I've ever seen in the public eye and he tightens that bolo tie up to hold the two grams of brain power he has in that thick skull. After accusing the left of whining about the "bus blower uppers," and "if you don't back off it idiots like McDermott will throw you under the bus." Miller claimed that "we've done away with wanted posters" because the left says they are racist which doesn't ring quite true as the FBI posted "wanted" posters for the Boston Marathon suspects. He shouted that "we have subjectified the empirical" and that "we are turning into a "mincing leviathan." (WTF?) He "joked" that we should "go after radical Islamic terrorist with the same vigor that we go after food network hosts." (Aww, poor Paula Deen)
When Bill "explained" that "according to McDermott, there's a quota," Miller interrupted him, screaming "how do you start a sentence with that McDermott is a mental chew toy ...McDermott is barely able to wind his watch and keep his alimentary track clogged." O'Reilly asked "what about the FBI "caving in." Miller: "Uh, I wish, listen Billie I'm just a little sad the fact that Jim McDermott is on TV of course the FBI is going to close that or they're going to cave in because they know if they don't they'll be a picture of J Edgar Hoover on the side of the bus in a mini-skirt."
Bill opined that if Miller or he were running the FBI, "we wouldn't cave in. We would not only keep the posters on the bus, we would make it bigger and put it on both sides of the bus."
Miller then went down and dirty: "If I was in charge of the FBI, I'd have a colonoscopy cam jammed in Jim McDermott 35 hours a day."
Bill chuckled and Miller laughed "I don't even know what that means." O'Reilly said, somewhat seriously, "I don't either." Miller, who might have heard something in his earpiece, and O'Reilly both chuckled as Miller said "they'd put, I meant surveillance." Laughing hysterically, he repeated "I meant surveillance." Bill laughed as he segued into the next segment.
Can you imagine the howls of Fox outrage if Bill Maher said this about a Republican member of congress? And Dennis Miller thinks McDermott is stupid? Oh, the irony. McDermott has his MD and served as a psychiatrist in the US Navy Medical Corps during the Vietnam War. Dennis Miller (who never served) is a failed right wing comedian who is riding the coattails of another right wing joker. And he accuses Rep. McDermott of being "a mental chew toy." As the awesome Melissa Harris-Perry would say, "wow, seriously?" And please, Dennis and Bill, it wasn't about "surveillance." But hey, "it's not a lie if you believe it."
No amount of fame or manipulated charm can cover up that these people are horrible to their fans, vindictive monsters dealing with their critics, and here isn’t a word for their double standards on morality.
Don’t even get me started on their politics- I quit wanting to think about that part of them last year.
Of course, we all know that the FoxNoise folkkks would strenuously object to those images because to them, apparently, terrorism only exists when there can be a connection to Islam. Anything else that “terrorizes” a community is merely a different type of crime—usually “mass killing” or “mass murder.”
*When you consider the broad definition of “terrorism,” all of these subjects qualify. “Terrorism” is NOT solely a political thing.
Makes you wonder what goes on after their little “Bold and Fresh” show.
I enjoy it myself. Like water boarding it’s fun and gets me in the mood for hamsters.
