Given that Bill O'Reilly mourns the demise of the white, Christian, male power structure, it's no surprise that he's totally on board with patriarchy. Whether it's religious or social, big daddy Bill knows that father knows best. And that's why he's just so concerned about Miley Cyrus' lack of paternal guidance. After her controversial performance at the VMA's, O'Reilly told his fellow Fox misogynist, Greg Gutfeld that Miley Cyrus' father isn't taking a firm hand with his daughter because "the father is responsible for guiding his children in a certain direction." (Mothers? Meh!) Last week, O'Reilly continued to show his paternal obsession concern about Cyrus in a discussion with Geraldo Rivera. It's clear that if O'Reilly had a hand in Miley's upbringing, things would be so much better for her.
After Rivera talked about the guidance he has given his daughters, O'Reilly pontificated that the segment is all about "the role of the father." He said that what Miley is doing is "helping her commercially" as it gets her "lots of attention" - a comment rich in irony in that O'Reilly's verbal vomit helps him commercially and gets him lots of attention. He lamented that "we're living in a world where this kind of stuff goes on all the time but her father comes out and says 'that's my Miley'."
He offered advice on how he would have handled this by saying that "this is a private matter between my daughter and myself but maybe that wasn't the best thing for her to do." (Huh, if this is a private matter why should he say anything? Oh, right, he'd be channeling Bill)
Rivera felt that Cyrus' new persona is a result of her attempt to shed her "Hannah Montana" character. He added that Billy Ray Cyrus has embraced "country ethos" and more is demanded of him so he's forced to say something." O'Reilly is "disturbed" because the "fathers of daughters in America are under siege" and "fathers have to stand up and say we believe this, whatever it is...and we hope our daughters and our sons follow this belief and keep the rest of this private." When Rivera said he's always there for his daughters, Bill added "so they're afraid of you." (Bill sure loves that authoritarian patriarchy thing!)
When it comes to discipline, Bill's a hard man!
Women burn me up! Hell, most men burn me up! If there wuz any justice in the world I’d have every man’s wife, and then some!! Sigh … I jest don’t have enough faith I guess … if I did God woulda blessed me with irresistible charisma! No! I blame it on my mother!!! She failed me!! God is good, God is good …. cuz He be a He!
Billy’s ego can’t handle failure, and he can’t stand that another man will be in his children’s lives. Billy and Maureen’s new love don’t get along very well.
Maureen can put an end to Billy’s rage by writing a tell-all book about this aging bog.
Billy brought this on himself. He went after another woman-Andrea-who wasn’t his wife. He destroyed his marriage by cheating.
Rest assure, Billy won’t be single for too long. He needs a woman to care of him as he ages. He will remarry.

NOTE TO BILLY
Ann Coulter is single. Go after her. She can’t have your colleague foe because his married with two kids.
The other night BOR totally hyped some study that concluded that authoritarian parents do the best job raising kids (and BOR definitely has an authoritative personality). Being that BOR is going through a divorce, it makes one wonder if he isn’t using his show via the FOX “news” airwaves to make a point to his ex-wife, the new guy in her life, his kids, others in the community/church, etc. because, as we’ve learned time and time again, it’s always about BOR.
Btw, BOR’s 2 kids had better turn out to be teens with exemplary behavior and highly responsible adults, otherwise their bloviating daddy is going to have to eat a very large plate of crow. LOL!
