Skip to comments.Donít smear OíReilly with Tiller assassination
Posted on 06/01/2009 3:38:26 PM PDT by GoldStandard
I see where some folks are trying to nail Bill OReilly for somehow inciting the assassination of Dr. George Tiller, a Kansas abortion provider, as Tiller was handing out programs at his church Sunday.
I think OReilly is a pompous jerk, and the evidence demonstrates that he clearly went well overboard in his condemnation and demonization of Tiller.
But lets be serious here. Its irresponsible to link OReilly in any way to the crime in question. Even if you had evidence that the suspected killer was an OReilly devotee and I have seen nothing to that effect you would need a much stronger showing of cause and effect to justify such a serious accusation.
After all, Tiller was a controversial figure in his own right, the focus of protests and physical attacks and political grandstanding at the state and national level. This tragedy could have and probably would have happened even if OReilly had never mentioned Tillers name on the air.
OReilly, Limbaugh and others are symptoms of a problem, but for the most part they are not causes of the problem. If they did not exist, someone else would be sitting there doing what they do, because they are meeting a market demand. Look at Lou Dobbs and the schtick that resurrected his career; look at Michael Weiner, who laughably rebranded himself Michael Savage. Theyre all playing roles for a profit, feeding off the paranoia and resentment of a certain type of American.

“OReilly, Limbaugh and others are symptoms of a problem, but for the most part they are not causes of the problem.”
How stupid can someone be, to include Limbaugh and Ohreally in the same category?
Leave it to the MSM to “blame “ any critics of Tiller while saying “don’t blame the critics”. Sleazy.
Can’t wait for this paer to go under too.
And BTW, there is NEVER coverage of any blacks protesting Abortion..and there were more blacks protesting at Tillers’ clinic than whites.
Bill who? Never heard of him.
Ohhhhhhhh...Jay Bookman AJC...stupid question...sorry...will drop him a line to tell him what an idiot he is; email@example.com
Whatever. BOR misrepresented FR, now he will get a taste of his own medicine. Open wide, Bill.
Who cares about OReilly. He turn’s a blind eye towards the legitimate doubt of Hussein’s origin of birth, just like all the other so-called “journalists”. Let him fend for himself. I can’t stand that narcissistic pompass ass.
Can we blame the anti war nuts for the shooting of our servicemen when they come home???
"Booger, Booger, Booger..."
No. Tiller is a symptom of a problem. A million women a year are killing their young, and men like Tiller take their money and do their dirty work for them. Thats a problem, but if Tiller didn't do it, some other moral imbecile would.
QUESTION: Why have I read so many anti-BOR comments here on FR? Calling him a jerk, etc. etc. etc.
I respect him for angering the liberal MSM the way he has. Granted, he & I disagree on a few issues (the death penalty, the Drug War, & maybe a few others), but that’s OK w/ me. After all, I doubt if there are any 2 ppl who agree on all issues all of the time.
Because he has bashed our website.
Can I play that game, too?
Can I say "Look at Charles Kuralt, whose lies about American "On The Road" wholesomeness while keeping two secret bigamous familes at each end of it, led to the permissiveness that we see to day that is leading to the decline of American morals."
Can I blame Charles Kuralt?
You must have missed what he said about this site the other day. And even before that he was unbearable.
