Geraldo Rivera, on the 9/11/01 Attacks......"It Was a Courageous and Fanatical Act"
FNC/The OReilly Factor

Posted on 09/08/2006 9:00:49 PM PDT by hole_n_one

On tonight's edition of The OReilly Factor on the FNC, Rivera stated that he believed the "kamikaze" style attacks took "courage" to carry out.

OReilly immediately disagreed with the ignorant and disgraceful sentiment spewed by Rivers.

Geraldo is just trying to get laid in a burka-Noxzema-Twister game at the harem.

I am not usually in the habit of defending Geraldo but he probably did not mean "courageous" in the tradition sense. He probably meant to say something like "bold". Let's be fair, I don't thnk Geraldo has any love or romatic inclinations for Al Qaeda.

Were Jim Jones and his Kool-Aid drinkers courageous or just deluded and zonked? I vote for the later. The Mohammadan fanatics were cowardly zips who passed up military targets to attack those who were in no position to fight back.

Rommel's "suicide" was brave and excusable. Most suicides are not.

Why do people misunderstand what I say??? Please go back and reread what I said. All I said was that I was giving Geraldo the benefit of the doubt in what he said was a poor choice of words. Please NEVER put words In my mouth. This really irritates me.

I saw Geraldo's 3 or 4 minute rant about the Towers tonight also and it just confirmed my thoughts about him. He's a grand standing sorry excuse for a journalist and why FNC hired him I'll never know.

I do not have a dictionary handy,but I do not think courageous falls into the terrorists book of training.Stupid and brainwashed is more along the lines.What an ass.I can not believe he is employed by anyone.Al Jerk--ff,maybe,but Fox?Makes one wonder.

With all the passion against the terrorist who did the 9/11 acts, I can't come up with the logical reasoning that could have a seasoned reporter like Geraldo making that dumb statement.

Courage?

This was one of the most crass and COWARDLY acts in historical record.

Geraldo is unable to recognize true courage or abject cowardice and this makes him unfit to present news.

Geraldo, it will be my pleasure to surf on by any "news" presentation you are fortunate enough to make from now on.

Courage? Ugh.

Words mean things, so if there is a misunderstanding, it is YOUR fault for not being clear, not mine. By the way, I never put words in your mouth. I was just voicing my own opinion about islamofacist scum.

He really needs to think before he speaks or acts, using the word "courageous" just feeds into the sick minds that do insane acts. This is on the same par when he drew diagrams in the sand during the Iraq war.

I doubt the WW2 Navy gunners at Okinawa used either words, courageous or bold, for the Kamikazi pilots.

Of course, we must never advocate violence here;), but if O'Reilly had just hauled off and slapped Whorealdo across the face for saying that, I would not be overly "appalled";))

Japanese pilots who attacked US warships were bold. Those that attacked defenseless hospital ships were cowardly scum.

We have been the cowards lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away," he said. "That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, it's not cowardly.

True of combat pilots of both sides. However, I was referring to Kamikazi suicide pilots. WW2 gunners were not nearly so accomodating.

In your view, are the Palestinian women and kids who blow themselves up in malls, buses, etc., bold?

They were dedicated, single minded fanatics who committed an evil act. They did not show courage they showed ruthlessness. Big difference.

I would say. Maybe so. Maybe no. I don't know and it does not matter. What I DO know is that they are the enemy and they are ruthless.

I am sure the Israelis are losing sleep over that.
