Remember when Bill O'Reilly insisted he only said "Shut up" once? Well, he's been proven a liar again. This time, O'Reilly was yet again using the Boston Marathon bombings to hate monger against a) the bomb suspect’s mother; b) immigrants; c) “the welfare chaos” and, of course, the Obama administration and Massachusetts’ Democratic governor Deval Patrick. Apparently, Alan Colmes was a little too on-target for O'Reilly. Just like he couldn't stand the truth a few weeks ago when Colmes spoke it.
Colmes called out O'Reilly perfect - at least until he was rudely interrupted. “I don’t share your outrage about this whatsoever,” Colmes said. “…This is manufactured outrage to go after people who are on welfare, people who don’t go after immigrants.” He didn’t get to finish but he’d surely have said the manufactured outrage was being used to go against “President Obama” and/or “Democrats.”
But O’Reilly cut him off with an unwarranted fury that suggested he might be on the verge of another meltdown. Jabbing his finger, he barked, “Colmes, shut up! Shut up! Alright?”
Monica Crowley didn’t come up with one of her colorful conspiracy theories but she nonetheless found opportunities for some memorable hate mongering. First, she threw a little hissy fit that the suspects had been granted their legal rights under American law. “You paid for (now-deceased suspect) Tamerlan’s public defense when he beat up his girlfriend in 2009!” she squealed. I guess she’d prefer that we just lynch the younger brother and be done with it! "We have an entitlement society that is now out of control," she shrieked. "We're talking about the wreckage of liberalism here."
I swear to God, she sounded as though she might start frothing at the mouth.
