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.
O'Reilly constantly bashes leftist and rightist "ideologues" so you're right FreeRepublic being the ideologue-ist right wing forum can never measure up to the great O'Reilly's centrism so why try?
O'Reilly shudders when he's accused of being conservative so he'll be no friend to Free Republic's conservative values. In addition O'Reilly is pro-homosexual and pro-hate crimes laws and anti-AnnCoulter so he's especially sensitive to anything negative spoken against gays and no matter how it's posted, it's going to be a hate post and eventually Free Republic will have to be shut down under new coming O'Reilly-approved hate crime laws.
To appease the likes of O'Reilly and gain acceptance into his narrow political correct view of the world Free Republic will have to censor (sanitize) more than a few posters and change the opinions of most on this forum, so is this going to proudly remain the Free Republic or now the narrow-sighted O'Reilly Republic?
Living up to O’Reilly’s childish “centrist” standards is indeed a losing game. But letting someone—ANYONE—lie about us on national TV is a losing game as well.
