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.
Will Freddie Phelps be at Tiller’s funeral protesting?
Thank you. My point exactly. This is the problem. The hired scalpels who do the dirty work are a part of the problem, but the root of the problem is the moral inversion that causes someone to want to kill their young.
Compared to the barbarian, Tiller-the-terrible for hire, Bill is a saint. I disagree with Bill on many issues, but he is certainly not in the heinous camp of liberal fascists.
I have confidence he’ll be blaming FR tonight....
Let’s see, well over a million people watch Ted Baxter on a regular basis, but only one of them shot & killed Tiller.
Hard to make the connection based on those stats.
He is deranged.
He makes it hard to attack policy that he also attacks.
He makes it hard to attack people who he also attacks.
Some inside scoop:
The Phelps family of lawyers was asked to do pro bono work for prolifers during the protests.
The Phelps family refused!
They are in all of this to glorify Fred, their perverted, child molesting, abusing father!
It included “jokes” about prisoners and soap and death and lots of stuff.
Seems we could blame Tiller's buddy, Sebelius, for some of societies ills, by this logic!
Why the fuss?
It was just another late term abortion.
son John, who caused a stir last year when he began marketing "Don't Drop the Soap", a prison board game he created, out of the governor's mansion. Retailing for $34.99, 'Soap' makes up with heavy-handedness what it lacks in imagination, offering players the chance to "escape prison riots in The Yard, slip glass into a mob boss' lasagna in the Cafeteria, steal painkillers from the nurse's desk in the Infirmary, avoid being cornered by the Aryans in the Shower Room, fight off Latin Kings in Gang War, and try not to smoke your entire stash in The Hole..."
Sounds like the kinda kid who spends his time playing "Grand Theft Auto."
Just say it. You mean the typical white man clinging to his guns and Bible.
Presidents are “assassinated”. Abortionists are “murdered”.
Did Ed accept blame for the anti-war person killing the Army recruiter? That would be consistent.
No..they are on the LEFT...
The Left are ‘righteous Victims “..who can smear, loot, pillage, rape and murder....their gunning down innocents and setting off bombs are just them expressing their “rage’ against such an “unjust” system....
( oh, and the military protects them from those that would behead them and they yelp their tirades against the ‘capitalist system’ from their multi million dollar brownstones and call the “POH-lees” if a reporter comes knocking on their door..aka, Bill Ayers).
Put the hate speech law into being and O’Reilly and others would be tried in cases such as this. That would indeed cancel free speech.
Actually, it is rather encouraging that FEW doctors will do the stuff that Tiller did.
Because he’s a biassed reporter just like all the rest of them. He hasn’t even scratched the surface on Hussein Obama... and he never will. We have a POTUS that is not “natural born”, and we all know it, but he never even treads down that road. Ever ask yourself why that is? Plus, the man just can’t “keep it pithy”.
Every time I see the name, “Atlanta Journal of Constitution” I think of the NY Times, Daily Kos & MSNBC all rolled up into one big load of crap.
You're correct. I don't watch his show regularly.
However, I made sure to see it earlier this evening 'cuz I wanted to find out how he would report the Tiller killing. He seemed fairly reasonable tobout it to me.
I then turned to The Butch Maddow to hear her / it's side for a lil comparison. She / it presented the story just like I thought she / it would.
O’Butthead’s hunt for Tiller was one of the good things he did.
Give the man a medal...a small one.
O’Reilly, The Not-So-Stealth-Democrat and Democrat Poster Boy for Catholic, “Working Class” White Male Democrats who are not Communist Sympathizers is certainly welcome to apply to his own party for help on this.
What are you not getting? BO is part of the liberal media. A lifelong and dedicated Democrat, his task is to keep white Christian males, especially Catholics, in the Democrat Party as long as possible.
If "Right to Life" actually meant anything to BO, don't you think he would vote for "Right to Life" candidates? He never has. Ask him.
As long as you are a Democrat, BO is "fair and balanced." If you are not a Democrat, wise up. This guy is taking you for a ride.
