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.

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

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.

THANK YOU, Kristinn. Your service to FR and our country and to us posters is priceless.

By the way, I saw the original dog in the manger comment and saw absolutely nothing wrong with it. O’Reilly is grasping at straws. Ooops! He’ll probably now say that I accused him of stealing from McDonalds.

I think BOR is upset over being called out on FR for his ‘lesbian-gangs-raping-young-girls’ story that was proven false.

I can safely say that after 10 years of being a member of FRee Republic I would not hesitate to recommend it to my black friends. In fact, one sent ME an FR post several years ago about the USS Ronald Reagan, without knowing I was a member.

And that is not one of those 'my best friends are black' statements.

And for the record, BOR is a big egotistical gasbag on many things. His only advantage is that he is better than the alternative. Glenn Beck comes on an hour later, and is FAR better than BORF.

Thanks for your work, I always envy you living so close to DC and not. ;-D

I've seldom been on a thread where anyone who gets bashed but I have run across various anti gay comment in the past. Never saw one bashing blacks.

The trolls at Kos whined we are a hate site and I believe provided these links to Fox, you got ambushed.

I can tell you one thing, I can read posts for hours (I think I’m addicted) here on FR, but I can’t listen to O’Reilly for a complete show without him saying something I think is crass, and I turn him off.

In my years here I think our fellow Freepers do an outstanding job of rebuking posters who get out of line.

Did Bore O’Reilly comment about all the times when our political opponents suffer personal tragedy we offer prayers and hopes to those families despite our differences.

Unlike the lefties who offer heaping vulgarity when a Conservative suffers personal tragedy.

I agree. I don't know if you can un-remove a post, but just on principle a comment taken out of context like that shoudn't be removed.

Thanks for standing up for FR. As we all know, Bill O’Reilly can be a first class pinhead. But all FReepers need to keep a sharp eye open for serious abuses.

As you say, we are not a politically correct forum. OTOH, 99.99% of all posts on FR do not contain the graphic rhetoric O’Reilly spoke of last night.

I watched....Kos was mentioned. Not one comment was made regarding DU. A rep from Kos was there, and Kristinn did a great job for Free Republic....when BOR let him talk.

This is a crock. That is no assassination wish, it is a satire.

Where is the "I hate blacks" post????

The meaning of the "homosexuals are dogs" was twisted out of context.

O'Reilly blew it bigtime, and has enraged a heckuva lot of former viewers of his show. Big mistake.

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

I'd say that's a smoking gun against "The Factor", because the "I H@te B1@ck$"(/grin)accusation was probably the most inflammatory. You deserve a follow up interview to approach him with your findings, but I doubt it will ever happen. From now on we'll have to refer to "The O'rielly Factor" as a "hate show" the next time he has a guest who has ever had a remotely racist or controversial thing to say.

"Dogs in a manger" - too erudite for The Factor or for me, never heard that one before.

Wishing someone dead is tasteless.

No link for the "I hate Blacks" comment.

Gee, The Factor got only one of three and that's all it takes to make a "hate site"? I've heard worse on The Factor. I guess The Factor is a hate program.

I like both Free Republic and O'Reilly, I guess I'm just an across the board hater. ;^)

This is really pathetic of O'Reilly. I think he felt he had to do it, but the level of research for this assault is ridiculous.

You did greatr Kristinn..

I was shocked that O’Reilly might find posts like he named..

But O’Reilly knows better than to just throw out an accusation and not have proof...where were the posts..he had no trouble showing a video of part of FR ...

why didnt he had the offending words on video or a printout?

I was waiting to see them..crickets...

The question is, are we going to get a retraction on the comments that were not here or misquoted?

I’m glad I stopped watching that gasbag awhile ago. If there is ONE site that keeps it “clean” it’s this one. For the Bloviator to call this a hate site strains the bounds of accuracy.

I posted on an earlier post from an article stajackson wrote to BOR. I felt from the beginning he had his nitwit producers come on FR and engage and bait freepers. Some of those producers could have written on FR what Bill spoke about. He is a worthless entertainer and the more freepers tune him out, the more his numbers will drop.

We should not be surprised he takes things out of context for sensationalism now.
