Last night, 4/11/13, in a diatribe I feel was not new to O’Reilly, he actually postulated that gun registration of responsible citizens would reduce gun crime by criminals. Even when it was pointed out that none of the recent shootings would have been stopped by his dangerous sophomoric suggestion, he stood fast.
He points to Chicago, claiming gun registration would help, because if a criminal was caught in a(n unconstitutional) “stop and frisk” with an unregistered gun, they’d be charged. It’s already illegal for these gangbangers to have guns. Laws won’t work if not applied, and Chicago does not apply the laws already on the books (1). How would another law matter to people with no respect for the live’s of others? Take the guns out of Chicago and every other progressive nightmare city and the death will go on.
Dave Daubenmire — Turn Off Bill O’Reilly… “Bill O’Reilly is not on our side, and he certainly is not “looking out for you.” Bill O’Reilly is a bloviating Bible-bashing buffoon”
Here is rule number one for securing victory in the battle for the culture. I learned this the hard way, and have the scars in my back to prove it.“Make sure that before the battle begins that all of the enemy is in front of you.”
The “conservative movement” is being sabotaged by those who we think are on our own side.
The sooner we learn that they are not, the better our chances of victory will become.
Bill O’Reilly is not on our side, and he certainly is not “looking out for you.” Bill O’Reilly is a bloviating Bible-bashing buffoon.Wait…maybe he IS looking out for me…alerting the enemy that “Bible believing Christians” need to be “looked out for”…as in, “I’ve got my eye on those Christians.” Isn’t that what our “gubmint” just said?He can fight for manger scenes all he wants.
(Gunny G: SEE READER RESPONSES, ALWAYS !!!!!, Please…) ~ Geraldo Demands To O’Reilly: No More Saying ‘Illegal Alien,’ Because It’s Like Saying ‘Negro’… ““You can never use the expression ‘illegal alien’ again,” the radio host said to his colleague Bill O’Reilly. “It is a pejorative.

On his radio show last week, Geraldo Rivera applauded the Associated Press’ decision to drop the term “illegal immigrant” from its official style guidelines and then decreed that no one should use the phrase any longer, seeing as how he believes it is akin to saying “negro” to describe a black person.
“You can never use the expression ‘illegal alien’ again,” the radio host said to his colleague Bill O’Reilly. “It is a pejorative. It’s like saying ‘negro’ or ‘homosexual.’ It is a loaded term that doesn’t accurately describe.”
“Why don’t you just give me a list of things I can say?” O’Reilly pushed back.
Bill O’Reilly vs. Rush Limbaugh… … O’Reilly accused opponents of gay marriage of lacking “compelling argument[s]” and merely “thump[ing] the Bible.””

There are various ways to describe the civil war rising inside the Republican Party: insiders versus outsiders, pragmatists versus true-believers, establishment versus Tea Party. Here’s another: Bill O’Reilly conservatives versus Rush Limbaugh conservatives.
Last week, the two media titans clashed after O’Reilly accused opponents of gay marriage of lacking “compelling argument[s]” and merely “thump[ing] the Bible.” Limbaugh responded by saying that conservative Christians “were sort of marginalized” on O’Reilly’s show.

March 25, 2013 -TPATH – Recently Glenn Beck made a statement that appears to have gone unnoticed by most. The context of what he was saying was cast to the mundane when he admitted, after years on TV and the radio of saying the opposite, that he was prevented from taking up subjects by the stations where he worked. This not only included FOX, but FOX was the object of the comment.
What does this tell us about the so called hard nosed, conservative commentators we welcome into our homes each day in search of an alternative to the progressive media? Well, for the most part it tells us that each of them are hypocrites at best and lying traitors at worst.
The half truths and intentionally misleading information coming from those we have depended upon are actually worse when this deception comes from, supposedly, our side.
…..Ok…I’ll agree that the libertarian movement is fragmented.
But so what?
I see no reason reason that it should be any other way. We don’t all have to be cogs in a wheel parroting the same lines. The fact that there is diversity within the libertarian movement says to me that there’s liberty within the movement. There can, and should be disagreements, that should be debated.

Bill O’Reilly’s ‘Killing Lincoln’ not for sale at Ford’s Theatre museum bookstore – The Washington Post
By Steven Levingston, Published: November 12
Of all the places you’d expect to find Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever,” Ford’s Theatre, the site of the dreadful act, should rank at the top.
But you’d do better to search for the history bestseller on Amazon.com, because you won’t find it at the theater’s museum bookstore…..
Megyn Kelly’s Pepper Spray Comments Spark Backlash

Megyn Kelly’s Pepper Spray Comments Spark Backlash By Mike Krumboltz
Pepper spray, its effects, and its appropriateness continue to be top of mind in the media.
Glenn Beck is extremely upset with how he is being treated by former colleagues at Fox News because of comments he made about Occupy Wall Street. Beck appeared on his old friend Bill O’Reilly’s program last week (view clip) and expounded upon his theory that the protests are not an organic uprising of disenchanted Americans, but a global movement with Marxist roots led by several revolutionary groups like the Service Employees Union and Working Families. These revolutionary groups are funded by George Soros and the whole thing is being orchestrated by America’s most famous community organiser, President Barack Obama. O’Reilly gave Beck’s theory the benefit of the doubt, but Fox News ace reporter Geraldo Rivera, was less kind, saying Beck’s words were “harsh at best, paranoid or delusional at worst”. Beck did not take kindly to Geraldo’s insulting dismissal of his theory and accused him, in turn, of being a sheep.
For anyone who’s thinking about Occupy Wall Street and saying, “you know, they made a good point,” we’re going to do a little critical thinking today and one of them is this. When the lion lays down with the lamb, that’s when Jesus comes. In the meantime, the lion eats the lamb. Another name for lamb? Sheep! Stop being sheep, America! Otherwise, he will eat you!
Beck is neither sheep nor lamb, and he does not intend to let anyone accuse him of spouting unsubstantiated nonsense that he hopes his gullible audience will accept as fact. Beck had hard evidence to back up his theory: a copy of The Coming Insurrection, a book written by the Invisible Committee, the collective pen-name for a small group of French intellectuals and academics, and a copy of the second edition of the publication du jour, the Occupied Wall Street Journal (pdf).

Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever
Having read quite a few books on Lincoln including most recently, David Herbert Donald‘s masterful biography, I found this tome lacking. Bill should stick to autobiography and political punditry. He will bring people to the subject that haven’t been there before, and that’s all good. But, Lincoln has been covered and covered, and if you’re going to write about him, you should have something really new to impart – if there is anything left to be said at all.
San Juan Capistrano Councilman Derek Reeve has made the national stage, but not in the most flattering manner.
Reeve, who has sparked controversy with his public comment that he named his dog Muhammad after the Muslim prophet, was labeled a “pinhead” by Fox News Channel commentator Bill O’Reilly during the “Pinheads & Patriots” segment of his show “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Each time I do a column against the actions of military brass (or criticize the illegal invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan), my email box loads up with cranky comments like “you’re a commie pinko” or “people like you who hate the military….”. My husband is a retired U.S. Army Colonel who served 27 years of honorable service including a tour in Viet Nam. He was also stationed at the Pentagon. There, that takes care of that.
FOX anchors did nothing to help get the truth out about Lakin because it was “all about the birther nonsense”. It’s easy for many to betray when you’re paycheck is in the double digit millions per year. In 2008, Hannity signed a new contract with the king of pornography, Rupert Murdoch, for $20 million a year. Glenn Beck‘s contract with FOX was $50 million for five years. The constantly fact challenged, Bill O’Reilly, signed a new contract with FOX in 2008 for $12 million a year. All three of them have mocked the issue of what natural born citizen means regarding the legitimacy of the putative president’s eligibility.
Every single officer up the chain of command should hang their head in shame for being part of the lynching of such an honorable man because that’s the equivalent of what happened to Lakin. I interviewed him a few months ago on radio while hosting for a friend. It was difficult because he was kicked under the bus by his own to protect one of the worst liars and frauds ever foisted upon this country: Barry Dunham aka Barack Hussein Obama aka Barry Soetoro aka Barry Obama aka Barack Dunham.

Social Security claim vanishes from O’Reilly podcast
WND ^ | April 16,2011 | Bed_Zeppelin
Posted on Saturday, April 16, 2011 10:40:58 AM by Bed_Zeppelin
Since Fox News host Bill O’Reilly erroneously claimed President Obama’s Connecticut-issued Social Security number was likely the result of his father having “lived in Connecticut for several years,” the cable news giant has apparently scrubbed the audio of the statement from its website.
In his viewer email segment Wednesday night, O’Reilly was asked by viewer John Knox of Arlington, Va.: “What about Obama having a Connecticut Social Security number? He never lived there.”
“His father lived in Connecticut for several years,” O’Reilly answered, adding that “babies sometimes get numbers based on addresses provided by their parents.”
Another letter from Fox viewer Ken McFadden of LaGrange, Ga., asked: “O’Reilly, will you stake your professional reputation that Mr. Obama is constitutionally eligible to be president?”
“I will, Ken,” answered O’Reilly.
VIDEO: O’Reilly GRILLS Michele Bachmann: “Can you deal with Complicated Issues?”
Business Insider ^ | 04/08/2011 | Steven Loeb
Posted on Friday, April 08, 2011 4:17:56 PM by SeekAndFind
O’Reilly questioned Bachmann on why she thought she was even qualified to be president or if she had the experience to run the country.
“Do you have the frame of reference to deal with complicated issues like China trade? Like Iran nuclear? Like the unintended consequences?”
According to Bachmann, her age and life experience have, in fact, prepared her for the presidency.
“I do have a broad extensive background. I’m a student of many years. I have studied a wide birth of topics. I sit currently on the intelligence committee. We deal with the classified secrets. And with the unrest that’s occurring around the world. I also sit on financial services committee. But, again, I’ve lived life.”
The most interesting part of the interview came when O’Reilly pressed Bachmann on her gaffe over the site of Lexington and Concord, which Bachmann had said, more than once, was in New Hampshire instead of Massachusetts.
At first Bachmann tried to make a joke out of O’Reilly’s question, saying “I promised I would never again use Barack Obama’s teleprompter.” O’Reilly, however, was not satisfied with this and asked her about it again. When Bachmann tried to duck the question again by saying “it was a mistake and I don’t want to throw anybody under the bus so we’re going to leave it at that,” O’Reilly came up with his own theory about what happened.
“Somebody wrote that. You probably didn’t read over your stuff, and that’s how it came out. Correct?”
“I’m not going to throw anybody under the bus. I take full responsibility and we’re just going to move on from there.”

It is about the fact that Obama’s father was a Kenyan National and never a US citizen. This fact alone makes Obama a British subject or at best gives him dual citizenship and because of this makes Obama unconstitutional to be President.
Now those who question this openly are labeled birthers, racist, bigots, right wingers or are thrown in jail for some bogus charge. Theresa Cao and Lt. Col. Terry Lakin are just a just a couple of people who have questioned Obama and his eligibility.
These people are no more guilty of commenting a crime than anyone of us, they have just questioned the Usurper in Chief.Now where is Congress in all of this? Is Congress afraid of Obama?
Are the Courts afraid of him? Have there been death threats made against members of Congress. Has Obama’s goons made them an offer they couldn’t refuse? Did they wake up one morning with the head of a horse next to them in bed? What is the going price these days for selling out your country?
This evening, Bill O’Reilly took a shot at Governor Palin on his show regarding the last interview he conducted with her. If you recall, the governor rightly put an end to O’Reilly’s annoying habit of interruption, by reminding him that he was indeed interrupting her. As you can imagine, Bill’s ego suffered a bit of a bruising from the governor’s action.On tonight’s episode of The O’Reilly Factor, Bill spoke with Chis Wallace to make himself feel better about it all.
He compared his behavior as a media personality, with that of Chris Wallace, stating that it is mandatory for serious journalists like themselves to constantly interrupt their guests. I’m not sure how Wallace managed to allow himself to be used by O’Reilly in this manner considering that he is not the one with the horrible reputation of being a rude host. Not through persistent interruptions anyway… No, Bill O’Reilly is the one with the bad reputation and he knows it. Obviously Governor Palin struck a nerve and an over-sized ego when she called him out last week, otherwise he wouldn’t have done this segment tonight.The funny thing is that if Bill actually paid any attention to the answers his guests give, he would have realized that Governor Palin DID answer his question. The show’s transcript states:………………..
You’ve all heard Bill O’Reilly, Chris Matthews and Lawrence O’Donnell rant and rave about this “non-issue” – making it seem like only crazy people would have a concern about the eligibility of the present occupant of the White House.
But now that the integrity of the Constitution has rightfully become a state issue, because of the abject failure of all controlling legal authorities at the federal level, media at the state and local level are jumping into the act, attempting to enforce acceptance of Obama’s story on an unwilling public through the sheer tyranny of “political correctness.”Here are some recent examples for amusement purposes:
It has become abundantly clear that the establishment is so petrified of the fact that Alex Jones is at the tip of the spear of a new media revolution that is sweeping away the old guard, that we have now reached the point where talking heads like Bill O’Reilly and indeed the Obama White House itself dare not even mention his name.
a segment about “the dumbest things of the week,” Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly entertained his dwindling geriatric audience by poking fun at Alex Jones’ appearance on The View last week, chuckling and guffawing at the behavior of “some guy on the radio, we really don’t know who he is.”
for Bill O’Reilly, whose own radio show was cancelled in 2008 because of plummeting ratings, that “guy on the radio” is totally creaming Billo on every measurable platform…………………………….
Glenn Beck’s Non-Solutions

Recently by Laurence M. Vance: Should Gays and Lesbians Serve in the Military? Review of Glenn Beck, Broke: The Plan to Restore Our Trust, Truth, and Treasure Threshold Editions, 2010, x + 406 pgs., hardcover, $29.99.I don’t watch Glenn Beck on television or listen to him on the radio.
I agree with much of what they say on topics like liberalism, Obama, the Democratic Party, welfare, healthcare, environmentalism, abortion, etc., but I vehemently disagree with their support of the Republican Party, the warfare state, and the national security state.
This does not mean that I have my head in the sand. I did listen to Limbaugh a great deal in the early days of his show when Bush I and then Clinton were the presidents.
I can remember when Hannity filled in sometimes as a guest host for Limbaugh. I couldn’t stand him even then and my opinion has never wavered. Since then I have seen and heard numerous clips of the Limbaugh, Hannity, O’Reilly, and Beck shows, visited their websites, and read some of their books. I previously reviewed one of Hannity’s books here.
Limbaugh is about the only one I can stand to listen to now if I come across his show on my car radio while traveling.
The only political show really worth watching – because it gives you the unvarnished truth about the crimes of both Democrats and Republicans – is Judge Andrew Napolitano’s Freedom Watch on the Fox Business channel.
However, since I don’t get that channel, I am limited to only hearing reports about it or seeing short clips of it every now and then……………………
NEWSCASTERS OR POMPOUS PURVERYORS?
by Neil Turner
CNN broadcasts in over 212 countries around the world through U.S. and international divisionsFeb. 23, 2011 —
How can you two Pompous Purveyors of Parse call yourselves Newscasters or Investigative Reporters, when you can’t even read a cue card or a screen image that says:CERTIFICATION not CERTIFICATE of LIVE BIRTH;andNATURAL BORN CITIZEN not CITIZEN, or NATURALIZED CITIZEN, or BORN IN AMERICA?
The Factor Bill O’Reilly: “Here’s the deal. The issue doesn’t matter! Sane, clear thinking people understand that the President is not a Muslim. He wasn’t born in Indonesia, or whatever.”Juan Williams: Why all the State legislation to require eligibility be proven to be on the ballot?.
“Because they’re PINHEADS!
It’s just a Grandstand play by people who are looking for attention.”We The People: “Here’s the real deal, Mr. O.” The issue does matter to 180 million Americans who question his faith and his condition at birth. Sane, clear thinking people understand that:
1. If he is a Christian who converted from his documented muslim faith in his 20’s, there would be a fatwah on his ‘apostate’ head; a death sentence called for by all ‘good’ muslims worldwide. the silence is deafening here.
2. If he is a Christian, not still a muslim, he wouldn’t be reciting the muslim prayer at sunset, or saying that he will stand with them the muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction, or funding terrorist organizations like the Hamas ‘refugees’ from Palestine, or bowing down to muslim kings and potentates.
3. You don’t legitimize illegitimacy by:a. simply showing a proven-to-be-forged CERTIFICATION of LIVE BIRTH and calling it a CERTIFICATE;b. interchanging the words ‘natural born’ with ‘naturalized’ or ‘native born’ or ‘citizen’ or ‘American’;c. saying that the 14th Amendment defines or even mentions ‘natural born’.

CITIZEN REMINDS “JOURNALIST” BILL O’REILLY THAT HIS JOB IS TO ASK QUESTIONS
February 22, 2011
Bill O’Reilly anchored the program “Inside Edition” and worked for ABC and CBS News before joining the Fox News ChannelDear Mr. O’Reilly,This will be dismissed by you as you have in the past, but I just had to write after your demonstration of dismissal of the doubt of the now more than 50% of the American people.
First, we are not “birthers” as you and others want the rest of the world to believe.
Unlike you, we want to know the truth. We do not accept an announcement or two that could be placed by anyone or a COLB wonder if you know what that is? as proof that a candidate is a natural born Citizen, as stated in Article II, Section I, paragraph 5 of the U. S. Constitution, qualified to be President of my country.
Your pontification with Megyn Kelly the other night leads me and others to suspect that you are as much a part of what is wrong with America as the 100+ years of progressive rule.
You should pay more attention to Glenn Beck, who always says, “Question with impunity.” Your lack of integrity is apparent on this subject……………..

Bill O’Reilly bashes ‘nutty’ birthers
WND ^ | February 10, 2011 | Joe KovacsPosted on Thursday, February 10, 2011 11:40:08 AM by RobinMasters
Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly took a jab at those seeking proof of Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility for president this week by referring to them as “nutty.”
The comment came in a response to a viewer who watched the top-rated cable host’s interview with Obama on Super Bowl Sunday.The letter stated, “Bill, thanks for winning me $100. I bet a friend you would not ask Obama about his birth certificate, and you didn’t.”O’Reilly responded to Harris by saying with a grin, “Let me get this straight, Ed. You found someone who bet you a hundred bucks that I would ask the president about the nutty birth-certificate stuff.
Can you please send me that person’s name? I would like to do business with this guy.”
As Drudge put it yesterday, “B.O. interviews B.O.”

National Public Radio’s firing of the talented and amiable Juan Williams for comments he made on Fox News about Muslims is outrageous, even disgusting. But it is not an aberration. It is emblematic of the “dictatorship of virtue” imposed on Americans by the country’s elites — many of them, like those at NPR, publicly funded but unaccountable to the American public. Judging from the response to Williams’s firing and the immediate extension of his multimillion dollar contract with Fox News, it looks like he will thrive.
But arrayed against the unchecked power of elite multiculturalism, now ensconced not only in Ivy League universities but in the White House as well, it is not at all clear that the country will.Americans of all political stripes appeared mystified by NPR’s firing of the highly regarded Williams after he gave Bill O’Reilly something resembling an honest if not completely innocuous rendering of his feelings about flying in airplanes nowadays: “But when I get on the plane, I’ve got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”The public’s bewilderment is easy to explain.
The takeover of our most prized institutions by the type of authoritarian multiculturalism exhibited by NPR took place quietly, over time, and out of the public eye. Multiculturalism began as the academic adjunct to the integrationist civil rights movement of the postwar decades, an attempt to correct the improper omission of underrepresented groups in American history. But its practitioners also reserved for democracy a place of special grandeur, the natural and logical culmination of humanity’s centuries-long struggle over the best way to govern.

NPR terminated its contract this evening with Juan Williams, who worked with them as a senior political analyst, after Williams appeared on Bill O’Reilly and spoke of a “Muslim dilemma:”VideoThe move came after Mr. Williams, who is also a Fox News political analyst, appeared on the “The O’Reilly Factor” on Monday.
On the show, the host, Bill O’Reilly, asked him to respond to the notion that the United States was facing a “Muslim dilemma.” Mr. O’Reilly said, “The cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some Muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet.”Mr. Williams said he concurred with Mr. O’Reilly.
He continued: “I mean, look, Bill, I’m not a bigot. You know the kind of books I’ve written about the civil rights movement in this country. But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried.
“He said the war with Muslims, America’s war is just beginning, first drop of blood.
I don’t think there’s any way to get away from these facts,” Mr. Williams said.A taxpaying-funded organization fired someone over their free speech?
NPR said in its statement that the remarks “were inconsistent with our editorial standards and practices, and undermined his credibility as a news analyst with NPR.”

TV TALKING HEADS ARE ALL TALK AND NO ACTION
by Tom Deacon
(Sept. 30, 2010) — I am amazed and dismayed as day after day passes with an ineligible person in the office of president. No birth certificate is required to make that determination, yet the media continues to pretend there is “no problem.” How did the left lock the eligibility issue down so securely that Fox News and their talking heads, supposedly the one place for fair and balanced information among the “main stream” media outlets, has zipped up on the issue? The highly paid Fox entertainers only rarely mention it, and then only to insult the millions (58% by a recent CNN poll), of Americans who say they are not sure Obama was born in the U.S.A., let alone a natural born citizen. These people want a “fair and balanced” discussion, instead they get an attempt at humor at their expense for having the audacity to demand proof of eligibility from the putative president and commander-in-chief.
America being held hostage to the “race card” so completely that THE ONE in power and his many enablers can only be criticized in ways that will not directly remove them from their positions of power, or possibly send them to jail? Those who disapprove of almost everything the Obama regime does, people such as Ann Coulter and Michelle Malkin, for example, call those who just want a discussion of “natural born citizen” unflattering names they think will get the best laugh in the rare instance they mention the issue at all. These people will not even discuss the case of an American hero, LTC Terry Lakin, because they fear it will force discussion of Obama’s eligibility, or lack thereof.

WE ARE BEHIND “ENEMY WITHIN” LINES, SURROUNDED, Our ‘Novembers’ Are Gone!…So Few Can Grok this!
Last week various activists successfully managed to generate publicity for 9/11 truth:
Along with that, local press conferences were also held by people throughout the world, presenting the same evidence.
On 9/11/10 Richard Gage, 9/11 victim family member Manny Badillo, and others shined a third beam of light into the sky over New York City in a symbolic representation of Building 7 to accompany the traditional two beams that shine every year for the Twin Towers.We Are Change held successful protests in New York City around the anniversary of 9/11, as it does every year, along with various speaking events.
One of them featured anti-war hero Cindy Sheehan, who said that she now thinks the 9/11 attacks were an inside job. Nine years after the attacks, having suffered the plunder of their wealth by Wall Street, seeing the wars continue under Obama, and recognizing more clearly the endless stream of disinfo and lies that their government and mainstream media are feeding them, more and more Americans are slowly begining to look at 9/11 and the improbable collapse of the 3 buildings in New York with a more critical eye.
9/11 Truthers aren’t the only ones who recognize this. Enter Bill O’Reilly.

What this article is mainly about, is how America has been slowly propagandized into meekly accepting dhimmitude status. A dhimmi, as you know, is a non-Muslim infidel living under the heel of a Muslim theocracy. You might want to ask an Egyptian Christian how swell such an arrangement works. LinkEgypt was, after all, at one time Christian, as was much of the Middle East.
Far from being unprovoked aggressors, the Crusaders were simply trying to regain what had been stolen from Christians—but again I digress. LinkThe other night I watched as Bill O’Reilly, all decked out in his UN-blue power tie, explained to us how we mustn’t upset the Muslims by doing anything stupid—i.e. anything that might offend them. This was prior to Saturday, when Pastor Jones was threatening to burn copies of the Qur’an. This was, admittedly, not the most tolerant thing I’ve ever heard of, but neither was it the cause for world-wide alarm that it became.
For crying out loud, it was one guy, with a congregation of fifty people. We’re not talking about 9/11 here. LinkWatching O’Reilly I thought I might barf, but I rallied, turned off the TV, and started reading a good book. After all, O’Reilly was merely repeating what every “sensible” person already knows.“Shhh—don’t upset the Muslims, you know how they are.”“Shhh—don’t upset the Muslims, you know how they are.”
That’s the message that “we the people” have been told repeatedly by all the mass media including Fox. “Don’t rock the boat.” “Let sleeping dogs lay.” “Don’t give the Muslims any reason to get mad, or watch out.” It’s “walking on eggshells time” whenever the topic of Muslims comes up. LinkEven the wildly irreverent producers of “South Park” backed down like beaten puppies, when “The Threat” was aimed their way.
And now Ground Zero mosque imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, has warned America that we had better stop playing with fire, and allow the mosque to be built—or else. And we all know what “or else” means. Link and Link Is that a threat? Just asking. I don’t react well to threats, is all.When did the United states of America become such a gutless, spineless, nation of wimps?
Since when do “we the people” bow down en masse before ANY foreign ruler or lifestyle? Link
Since being “housetrained” by political correctness, and liberal politicians, media, judges, and “entertainment” venues, that’s when. Link
