Skip to comments.The Homosexual Mafia attacks the "Door to the Right"
Posted on 10/19/2004 5:17:28 PM PDT by TaxRelief
History has shown that the neutral position is the most dangerous position to take. Unfortunately for Bill O'Reilly, the host of Fox News' O'Reilly Factor and the target of sexual harassment lawsuit, his attempts at reasonableness are neither liberal enough for the hard left nor conservative enough for the solid right.
Conservatives bite the hand that feeds them when they fail to recognize that O'Reilly, in his position as an independent moderate, provides the perfect doorway through which a maturing, political aficionado can pass as he discovers the dangerous liberal slant of the mainstream media. (Certainly, a budding neo-con does not wake up one morning to the sudden discovery that he is ready for conservatism "al Sean Hannity.")
O'Reilly's political positions--his support of abortion, homosexual adoption, homosexual marriage, fiscal conservatism and limited government; and his opposition to animal rights activists, "feminazis" and environmental whackos-- parallel very closely the interim stage that many moderates pass through on their journey from the young, brainwashed me-generation to the more logical realm of adult conservatism.
O'Reilly practices Catholicism exactly the way John Kerry does; He professes a distaste for abortion, but implies that abortion, other than partial-birth abortion, should not be limited by law. (If this logic was carried out to its conclusion with any existing law, we'd be in total disarray--I don't believe in euthanizing disloyal spouses, but who am I to interfere with your household?) Because Bill O'Reilly has only babies in his home, he has not yet experienced the introspection that parents are forced to encounter sooner or later as they help their children grow in faith within the church.
The political stance of O'Reilly, and others moving away from the left, has not slipped past the attention of the Homosexual Mafia or past the strategists in the Democrat Party. By way of example, John Kerry's stated position about the deficit is that it can be blamed solely on "big Republican" spending. Kerry obviously believes that the wider he makes the stated definition of liberalism, the more people who might otherwise be attracted to conservatism, he will be able to keep in the camp. Unfortunately for all of the left, however, more and more adults are doing their homework and recognizing the inconsistencies between liberal promises and the reality after a liberal is elected.
An exploration of the social history of America and the MSM (mainstream media) reveals overwhelming evidence that the Homosexual Mafia, more than forty years ago, rested on a strategy to control public opinion by infiltrating the media and moving into powers of position within newspaper publishing houses, TV production studios and Public Radio. For the first twenty of these years, it was not openly obvious that they had positioned themselves so well.
Eventually conservatives in positions of power began to recognize that the right was well behind the social engineering curve, so they rose up and attempted to fight back with reason and competition. But they were too late. The social control of the "civil rights" crowd , the monopolies of small city publications and the power of "political correctness" in the schools were too strong, and forced them to turn to new venues, the "new media"--talk radio, cable news, conservative publications, the internet and finally bloggers --was born.
As a key member of this New Media, Bill O'Reilly is now a serious threat to the radical leftists' civil-rights agenda, and apparently is more than the Homosexual Mafia can control. Al Franken, in his position not only as a spokesman for the Homosexual Agenda, but also as a general in his political army, went on a blatant attack of O'Reilly with his book and, more subtly, by naming his competing radio show The O'Franken Factor. Given that these latest strategies have not worked--they didn't even dent O'Reilly's ratings--Franken, according to the manager of a restaurant patronized by the liberal media, is in cohorts with Andrea Mackris, O'Reilly's staff member known for her "sexual rants and drunken propositions." Mackris hopes to publish a tome that paints O'Reilly as anything but conservative, Franken-style, in an attempt to break any remaining ties between O'Reilly and his semi-conservative followers.
Perhaps O'Reilly's recent iteration of his softened stance on the integration of homosexuals into normal society occurred because he recognized the impending threat from the Homosexual Mafia.
Unfortunately, O'Reilly has not realized that he is making a serious mistake by supporting a left social agenda. Other than people in transition from one political position to another, there is no established middle ground in the media. There is no established group of followers and their are no supporters of the "middle ground." Indeed, by definition, the moderates are transitional and wishy-washy, and they are therefore not in a position to rise up and defend Bill O'Reilly.
So, Bill O'Reilly is all alone.
It is up to the supporters of the New Media to rise to the occasion. Allowing the Homosexual Mafia and the MSM to win this battle will give the leftists the courage to continue their attacks, and next time they may take on one of the better known heroes of freedom such as Ann Coulter or Neal Boortz.
Conservatives and libertarians must get off their high horses and recognize that which those who wish to dictate the social agenda of America recognize:
If Bill O'Reilly is taken down, a "Door to the Right" will, for at least a while, be closed in the faces of those who are ready to begin a journey towards truth and the conservative, comfort zone of the New Media.
You know that and I know that, but does a person raised by liberal parents, who attended public schools, who reads the MSM, who received a degree from an American college and who has little religious education have any hope of knowing that?
Bill O'Reilly provides the perfect portal for getting "the brainwashed" into the real world. He helps them to begin the process of questioning the premises that buttress their liberal bastions.
You may be right ... but it's like the people who "believe" in the minimum wage, when every bit of empirical evidence shows that it hurts the poor and minorities most ... or people who "believe" in higher tax rates, when every bit of empirical evidence shows that lower tax rates produce more revenue.
How ignorant are adults allowed to be, before we can conclude that they're deliberately rejecting reality?
You may have asked that , but you haven't answered my question; What rights are homosexuals denied?
If O'Reilly goes down in flames, I'll be the first to arrive with a bag of marshmallows. The way he's treated John O'Neill and the SwiftVets/POWs is only the latest in a long string of outrages.
Agreed. The IRS is an overt institution that enforces the subjugation of citizens, but there are many less obvious government departments that are possible even more controlling. Child Protective Services, for instance--in libertarian lingo--has the power not just to confiscate your property, but to steal your kids as well.
I don't know enough about Bill O'Reilly to judge this point, but I agree with the premise. There is a place for "transitional conservatives." I was always a Republican, but not always conservative. I went through a number of stages (all of which are not clear, in retrospect :-), before arriving at my current positions.
O'Reilly just seems too OLD to be lingering in "Maybe-land."
He has been extremely dismissive of John O'Neill, to the point of inconsistency with many of his own positions.
But that is a recent situation, since this whole thing began to brew. How much of it was a human reaction to FEAR of the liberal attack machine? How much of it was just a stupid attempt to stave of the inevitable?
If we make the mistake of turning our backs on Bill O'Reilly, this will be a huge victory for John Kerry, Al Franken and the rest of their ilk.
You answer my question and I will answer yours.
I liked the guy for about 5 months in the beginning, then got sick of him and turned him off.
I have no clue how he gets the ratings he has at all. It seems to be a greater mystery than the pyramids.
I don't think moral progress is related to age. In my experience, it is more closely related to the ages of one's children and/or serious life tragedies.
And pro Gun Registration. BIG TIME.
Actually O'Reilly made O'Neill look good simply by looking so bad in comparison (by falling into the moral relativism trap.) O'Neill came across as grounded, patient, polite and confident in his facts.
However, this does not change the fact that O'Reilly is being targeted by the left to divide and conquer the conservatives and emerging conservatives who are "experimenting" with Fox News!
...and you want to roast marshmallows?!?!!
It is all in how you set your priorities. Which do you consider a great threat. The government agencies that are a direct and greater threat to us and our freedoms. Or the homosexual movement that is a indirect and lesser threat to us.
So people just don't have their priorities straightened out.
Could be. I had children young and got kicked in the teeth by Reality. Fortunately, I'd had plenty of fluoride in my formative years.
I turned my back on O'Reilly long ago -- when he turned his back on me and my kind. I don't care about that cafeteria Catholic's motivations and I don't care if Franken and the rest knock him off his perch. Maybe then Fox will exercise a little more discrimination in who they place before the viewing public.
I have never understood why some people are so passionate about making marriage illegal for homosexuals to the point of passing a constitutional amendment on the matter.
How hard have you tried? Here is a reality for you, society rests on the foundation we call the family. Man, woman and children. Sexually deviant groupings that don't fit that foundational definition harm society, giving them the protection of law is fatal to society. Every time. Study history. Why? Because defying God is fatal. Ask Europe.
Liberals and clueless RINOs. That's his audience.
Well, well, well........ Why should we not be surprised?!!!!
