O'Reilly Factor Provides Free Republic Offending Comments Links

I received an e-mail today from the Fox News producer who booked me for the O'Reilly Factor last night. The links have been forwarded to Jim Robinson for review.

Jim asked me to start a thread with the links so that Freepers, and everyone else, could see for themselves what the fuss is about.

The Hillary Clinton stray bullet assassination comment was a very bad joke comment that someone posted two days ago. It was flagged last night after the O'Reilly Factor broadcast and was removed by a moderator. It is available for the time being in Google cache:

To: Virginia Ridgerunner I like my scenario better:

After eight years of the economy faltering, interest rates are 19%, 900,000 people are dead in Iraq since we left, taxes have gone up by 60% and Chile, Bolivia and Columbia are now Communist regimes, a stray bullet at a NARAL rally catches President Clinton and kills her.

As they take away Cindy Sheehan she screams why did she have to remove the troops? We were winning.

The next day the dow goes up 2000 points and closes at 2150.

Don't even bother trying to defend that one. Assassination jokes have no place on Free Republic. Yes, Cindy Sheehan has written of her fantasizies about killing President Bush--and she's not joking, but that's her problem. We're better than that.

The "homosexuals are dogs" comment is taken out of context. The actual quote is "Homosexuals are the modern day dogs in the manger." That was in reference to an article about proprieters in the U.K. not being allowed to deny hotel accomodations to homosexual couples on account of religious belief.

The American Heritage online dictionary gives this description for the phrase: dog in the manger, NOUN: Inflected forms: pl. dogs in the manger. One who prevents others from enjoying what one has no use for oneself. ETYMOLOGY: From a fable in which a dog prevented an ox from eating hay he did not want himself.

That comment was posted two days ago and has also been removed by the moderators. It is available for now in Google cache.

The "I hate blacks" comment was nowhere to be found in the other threads referenced.

The threads are about crime in the black community, gangsta culture and Jesse Jackson. Two of the threads are in the Smoky Backroom.

This is my personal comment and not a statement on behalf of Jim or FR:

The moderators do a great job of holding up the standards that Jim has set for Free Republic. However, they need all of our help--in exercising our good judgment when posting and in hitting the abuse button when out of line comments are made.

We are not a politically correct site, however the posting guidelines need to be adhered to. The comments cited by O'Reilly are literally drops in the bucket of the millions of comments posted on FR and do not represent what FR is about. However, the better we take care of FR, the less chances we'll give people to pull stunts like O'Reilly did last night.

I want to thank everyone for the kind and supportive comments last night. It was not a 'fun' interview, but hopefully some good will come out of it.

Most extreme posts are probably trolls anyway.

That comment was posted two days ago and has also been removed by the moderators.
***Why remove it? If it’s taken out of context, that says it all about Bill O’Reilly’s standards.

So! What is the story on the "I hate Blacks" Line O'Reilly State on National Television?

If there is no link that is One Big apology he owes us.

I didn’t catch this. Hopefully Bill did an equal segment on the kind of comments that show up at DU an KOS. Right?

This is a losing game. I’m been offended by many of the things I’ve read on here and I’ve probably offended many people on here.

I don’t think O’Reilly understands the CONCEPT of trolling... I think he has no idea what it is.

For example, some of the phone calls he gets on the radio are clearly “radio trolls” — people just calling to get him angry, who don’t believe any of what they say.

Nothing personal, but I would ban the “stray bullet” poster.

Kristinn, ya done good! Don’t worry about Bad Boyfriend Bill, he was waving ONE sheet of allegations around and I think we FReepers can handle that! It was a good appearance, keep up the fine work.

Per usual, Kristinn, you represented FR well. For BOR's minions to scour the millions of FR posts to come up with those examples and him to portray them as typical of FR says much more about who BOR is and what he's about than it does about FR.

The “homosexuals are dogs” comment is taken out of context.

Exactly. "Dogs in the Manger" is a metaphor, from a fable. The American Heritage Dictionary defines it thus: "One who prevents others from enjoying what one has no use for oneself." This is NOT the same as calling homosexuals dogs.

Is it necessary to be a smart ass on a serious topic FR is trying to address?
