It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas with holiday lights, music, and Bill O'Reilly's annual rant about how evil atheists are trying to destroy Christmas in order to promote their gay, abortion, and drug agendas onto innocent, Jesus loving Americans. Part of O'Reilly's "nice" tradition includes attacks on those whom Bill sees as enemies of Christmas, such as the governors of RI and Washington whose worker had to deal with harassing phone calls and mail from Bill's Jesus loving fans. This year was no different. I don't know if O'Reilly started the media "controversy" which led to the death threats. But I do know that, as he did with the murdered abortion provider, Dr. Tiller, O'Reilly used his national media perch to contribute to a climate of hatred which doesn't exactly fit into the Christian Christmas message of peace on earth. Go figure!
Bill started off the season, in October, with an attack on a Wisconsin school district which was involved in a dispute over the nature of songs to be sung by the school's choir. Bill urged his fans to contact the district. And as sure as the tides go in and the tides go out, the school superintendent got death threats including a phone call from a woman who, after asking the school official about trees, asked if she would "look good hanging from one."
It's the "most wonderful time of the year." Right, Bill?
Seriously, I’ve read the manifestos they base this crap on, and I still don’t get the whatever’s passing for logic involved here.
And that’s the only real credit I can give O’Reilly- Is that, for how disjointed and seemingly uneducated his rants are, at least his “Atheists, Liberals, and Muslims” crap isn’t a verbatim repeat of these rants on paper. Still uses the same narratives, but it’s not a full-on parrot.
This year they’ll get what they ask for!
Harassment is normal with Billy. Just ask his ex-wife and Andrea.
They survive because their lawyers make Saul Goodman from Breaking Bad look ethical. There’s no other reason that I can think of.
