Bill O'Reilly, like his fellow Fox propaganda pushers, sees himself as a paragon of patriotism. And, like his fellow patriotic propaganda pushers, he has never served in the military. And if you think that his avoidance of the military was self serving, you are, as Bill once bloviated, impugning his patriotism because Bill "covered four wars with a pen," damit! But if Bill had actually spent time with those who put their lives on the line for our country, he might realize that they aren't bothered by an F-bomb or two which the rapper, Eminem dropped at last week's Concert for Valor, an all-star musical event to honor our veterans and promote organizations that support them. While the audience had no problem, Bill, ever a paragon of politeness, was incensed at such vulgarity!
Last Wednesday, in making sure that his Barcalounger Brigade was duly shocked and appalled, Bill played concert from the video during which Eminem did his blipped thing to a roaring crowd. He reacted: "Nice, huh, American families having to see that." He continued "but what did you expect when you invite Enimen's which the promoters obviously did. They know what he is and know what the does so the concert promoters and Starbucks is one of them insulted all American vets in my opinion." (Oh, yes, bad F-words offend the delicate sensibilities of our vets, who faced and continue to face things that aren't easily fought with a pen...)
He ended with a a quote *"if you dine with the devil, bring along a spoon. People rarely change, especially troubled people."
Once again, O'Reilly is engaging a brilliant piece of projection. According to Gabriel Sherman's awesome history of Fox News, O'Reilly "terrorized" a female Fox producer. He even admitted that when he gets angry (common occurrence, one suspects), he goes into a room where he screams and "uses very colorful language." And who can forget Bill's infamous "fuck it, we'll do it live" (which wasn't an exact quote but that's the gist) routine.
Talk about "troubled people."
And memo to O'Reilly - Your boss, Roger Ailes has no compunction about using the nasty F-word!
BTW, super Fox patriots Steve Doocy and Eric Bolling (who wears a great, big flag pin) who, like Bill, never served, thought that Bruce Springsteen's version of Creedence Clearwater "Fortunate Son," sung at the veterans concert, was very unpatriotic.
*The actual quote is "He who sups with the devil should have a long spoon" which means that "if you mix with bad people, you should be careful not to be influenced by them." I guess O'Reilly is saying that the sponsors of the concert will now be dropping F-bombs?
Correction: Eminem's name was misspelled in the original headlines.
Billy is not the only hot-headed Irish volcano in the building. Nixon trainee Ailes and Photo Op Hannocchio can drop a few bombs themselves.
All of these potty mouth cafeteria Catholics at this fraudulent “news” network act saintly on the air, and attend Mass on Sundays-which is waste of time given their behavior.
NOTE TO BILLY
We are offended by your foul mouth. Have some decency in the workplace, you aging clown.
And Priscilla, FWIW, the artist’s name is Eminem, not “Eminen.” (The name is inspired from his birth name, Marshall Mathers—M and M.)
