Since you are one of the prime right wing "hate pundits," we find it very ironic, if not disingenuous for you to be asking "shouldn't we rise above it?" Like all petty tyrants and bullies (not to mention sociopaths), you have occasionally pivoted to this "soft side", showing us the face of "compassion conservatism (i.e. bullying with a smile). Are your ratings slipping or has the hate and bile on the right grown too much even for a full blown bully and sociopath such as you? Or is this just yet another one of your ploys to separate yourself from the pack of right wing hate pundits as a way for you to feel "special" about your hating?
In any event, you are our favorite right wing hate pundit. You always exhibit the exquisite brittleness and seething intolerance which renders your every utterance ironic.
Love and kisses,"
Because if Bill O'Reilly can't see the irony of that question, he is clearly a narcissistic sociopath.
Hey, at least he isn't blatantly race- baiting like his colleague, Megyn Kelly.
Ms. Kelly brought an African American guest on her show to talk about....wait for it....Mumia Abu-Jamal. Remember him? He is the convicted cop killer from right here in Philly who, like the New Black Panther Party, never fails to get a rise out of the melanin challenged, octogenarian set, which makes up the typical FOX VIEWS audience these days.
Kelly looked long and hard for a guest to come on her program and defend Mumia, and she found one.
"Megyn Kelly got into an intense debate tonight with Johanna Fernandez over the infamous case of Mumia Abu-Jamal. Fernandez is a coordinator for the Campaign to Bring Mumia home, and Kelly was shocked that she actually found similarities between the convicted cop-killer and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And Kelly was outraged that there’s actually a proposal to get this taught in California schools.
Fernandez, to Kelly’s frustration, went over issues related to Mumia’s case and conviction. She said the media describes him with “coded language” like “thug” and “militant,” and claimed that there have been facts that haven’t come to light showing there might have been another shooter.
Kelly refuted that argument as having been disproved in court, and went back and forth with Fernandez until the latter said, “You are entitled to your own opinion but not your own facts.”
Fernandez told Kelly that Dr. King was fairly radical himself. Kelly jumped in, telling her, “You can’t just come on and talk and talk and talk.” Fernandez fired back, “You’ve been interrupting me since I’ve been on!” [Source]
Looks like it all went just about how Kelly planned it to me.
Finally, a few words about the immigration debate and what to do with the children flooding into the country from Central America.
The right wing seems to have it all figured out: Send armed militia-men to the border to protect us all from those crazed children invading our country from South of the border.
"Militia groups are starting to line the border between Texas and Mexico to protect the region from an influx of refugee children, despite warnings from state lawmakers and U.S. Customs and Border Protection to stand down.
The militias have provided dozens of pictures to the media of their members “guarding” the border while carrying what appear to be semi-automatic rifles. The members in the photos are wearing tactical gear and military-style balaclavas that shield their identities (other photos show militia members with their faces blurred out).
Reportedly, 10 or more militias have descended on the border while child refugees from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala continue to make the long trek and crossing to the United States. So far, an estimated 50,000 unaccompanied children have crossed the border. [Source]
The truth is these guys are no different from another group that has plans for those pesky children if they dare cross our border illegally.
"I’m sure you’ve been waiting with bated breath to get the KKK’s thoughts on the crisis at the border with all those undocumented children showing up there. Well, as you can expect, it’s really horrible. Al Jazeera America learned this week that they’re proposing a “shoot to kill” policy to deal with all those people (which again, includes lots of children) at the border.
Ray suggested it might be heartless to propose killing young children because of that. And here’s what the guy actually said.
“If we can’t turn ‘em back, I think if we pop a couple of ‘em off and leave the corpses laying on the border, maybe they’ll see that we’re serious about stopping immigration.” [Source]
This type of madness will continue until poli-tricksters in Washington decide to get serious about passing sensible immigration laws. They need to start working together to do things like free up funding for immigration courts, and to pay for the manpower needed to conduct deportation hearings in a relatively expeditious manner.
The children are coming because life in Central America has become increasingly worse, and the people living in those countries believe that it's better to send their kids on a dangerous journey to a country thousands of miles away that might ultimately offer them a better life, than to have them die in poverty at home.
Maybe it's time we started paying more attention to our foreign policy as it relates to those countries. We spend billions of dollars on small countries a half way around the world to protect our interests when it comes to things such as oil. Why not invest in these poverty stricken countries close to home so that their children won't be clamoring to come here?
I think that would be the better way to go, because, at the end of the day, there are only so many children that the KKK and militia types can shoot.
