After mocking Rep. Maxine Waters’ “James Brown wig” this morning, Bill O’Reilly apologized tonight. But then he began attacking her again, calling her a “demagogue,” questioning her patriotism and suggesting she’s some kind of welfare pimp.
As I previously posted, O’Reilly mocked Waters this morning by saying he couldn’t “hear a word she said” because “I was looking at the James Brown wig.”
Tonight, O’Reilly apologized to Waters:
O’REILLY: I made that mistake this morning on Fox & Friends. I said it in a simple jest that the congressman’s hair distracted me. Well, that was stupid, I apologize. It had no place in the conversation.
Now, it’s not necessary to poke fun at anyone who’s speaking from the heart in the public arena, in my opinion. But it is necessary to analyze what’s being said.
Then he immediately began impugning her character and patriotism.
O’REILLY: So, what exactly is Maxine Waters talking about when she says Mr. Trump is dangerous for America? I have no idea, and I don’t think Ms. Waters has any clue either. She’s just spouting the left-wing company line, and anyone who disagrees with her—well, she doesn’t brook disagreement. That’s not patriotism, madam, that’s demagoguery.
It would take a miracle but I really wish liberal advocates like Congresswoman Waters would stop the ideological nonsense and really focus on what America offers every responsible citizen.
So, O’Reilly is suggesting that the only cause for Waters’ criticisms of Donald Trump is because she is irresponsible. And we know what that means: it’s a kinder word for “shiftless.” Don’t believe me? Keep reading.
O’REILLY: In order to succeed in this country, you must be self-reliant, not dependent on the entitlement system that Maxine Waters loves so much. You must work hard. You must learn and develop a skill off the knowledge that you acquire in school. And you must be honest. That’s the message Congresswoman Waters and others should be spreading. Patriotism comes in many forms. Questioning the patriotism of others and bashing a new president isn’t patriotic, it’s useless.
Then he welcomed talk show host Jamila Bey who couldn’t seem to put forth a focused, cogent rebuttal.
Watch it below, from the March 28, 2017 The O’Reilly Factor.
“He was born with a silver foot in his mouth!”
“In order to succeed in this country, you must be self-reliant, not dependent on the entitlement system that Maxine Waters loves so much. You must work hard…….”
And you also need to have VERY WELL-OFF AND WELL-CONNECTED PARENTS to help you through life like Junior O’Lielly did, especially when it comes to getting into VERY ELITE (and naturally very pricey) private schools like Chaminade High School in Mineola, NY (i.e. Jr. O’Lielly’s alma mater). As a former Long Islander like Jr. O’Lielly (I grew up in Seaford, NY — O’Lielly grew up in the VERY TONY suburb of Westbury, NY — NOT middle-class Levittown as he always claims), I know this IRREFUTABLE FACT: ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY NO ONE gets into an elite and pricey private high school like Chaminade unless he meets AT LEAST TWO of the following requirements:
1. STRAIGHT A’s (or near straight A’s)
2. LOTS OF $$$$
3. THE RIGHT CONNECTIONS — according to Marvin Kitman’s book “The Man Who Would Not Shut Up” Junior O’Reilly was NOWHERE NEAR honor student status when he was a student at St. Brigid’s Elementary School (another pricey private school located on Long Island in Westbury, NY) in the early 1960s. Ergo, the late William O’Reilly Sr. (Jr.‘s dad) had to pull some strings with one of Chaminade’s guidance counselors in 1963 in order to get Jr’s acceptance ticket to Chaminade punched.
“In order to succeed in this country, you must be self-reliant, not dependent on the right-wing news media entitlement system that Bill O’Reilly loves so much. You must work hard, unless you’re willing to spew right-wing propaganda that you know is utter tripe but helps pay the bills. You must learn and develop a skill off the knowledge that you acquire in school—that development being how to completely ignore the facts and a sense of journalistic integrity. And you must be completely dishonest. That’s the message Bill O’Reilly and others are spreading. Patriotism comes in many forms, but the only acceptable forms are those that our right-wing party bosses decide are acceptable. Questioning the patriotism of others and bashing a new president isn’t patriotic, it’s useless—unless, of course, you work for FoxNoise or any of the other imbecilic, moronic, party-over-country idiots who populate right-wing media.”
Granted—I had to make some major additions to fit O’Reilly but for all his talk about how “to succeed in this country,” that’s pretty much a case of the pot calling the kettle black (no pun intended). O’Reilly doesn’t have the balls (probably literally) to run for political office.
You’re confusing Waters with DC’s delegate, Eleanor Holmes Norton. (And, despite both women being African-American, I’m not going to jump to the conclusion that “all Black women look alike to you.” I’m sure you just had a momentary lapse.)
Go after the Fox “News” suits by placing blame on them for not suspending this clown.
Use Judge Nap’s suspension and compare it to Billy’s. The topic of discussion should be double standards.
1. Why Judge Nap’s is punished for first time offense, but Billy has been accused of sexual harassment, but Fox “News” executives continue his employment.
Shame every Fox “News” suit executives.
