O’Reilly was awful last night. His stance was that nothing is worth fighting for, but surrender is the way to win when the rules are not on your side.
Churchill should have surrendered, as should have the Alamo, as should have Washington at Valley Forge.
The first amendment specifically says that we have a right to assembly and petition for the redress of grievance.
THAT is the part of the Constitution to which Cruz and the defund ObamaCare movement is appealing.
Karl Rove be hung by his thumbs with his lackey, Bill O’Reilly, who continually carried Rove’s water during the Fox News Mitt Romney Lovefest.
One final note. O’Reilly said on his program, when asked about Jesus’ Resurrection, that his book “Killing Jesus” is about “history” and not about “religion.”
In other words, O’Reilly’s book engages at some level in a Bultmanian type “demythologizing” of the Good News story of Jesus’ birth, life, death, resurrection, and ascension.
One has to wonder if O’Reilly finds that Jesus was not killed due to the final straw of the raising of Lazarus from the dead, and the ensuing spiritual rejection of their Messiah, but rather solely due to some political impact he was having. (Whoop...there’s a “new” idea. /sarc)
To excise “religion” from the story, O’Reilly cannot use all the available facts, and he cannot conclude that Jesus was slain due to the rejection of God’s messenger, evidence of the evil, depraved human nature at war with God.
Therefore, he misses the whole story; he SPINS.
He's not even that smart. He's a dim bulb, really. Sometimes his heart is in the right place. Most of the time he's an incoherent mess.
But he has a degree from Harvard. He'll tell you all about it.
Indeed. Thank you so much for sharing your insights, dear brother in Christ!
He always is awful.
I'm reminded of what Gov. Walker went through in WI. He stuck to his position, won a recall election, and now WI is running a surplus with the unions in decline.
Maybe another even better example is Reagan. He pushed through a Rat controlled Congress tax cuts in a terrible economy and when even his advisors told him he had to reverse course he held firm. We ended with a booming economy and the end of the USSR.
If the GOP doesn't win on the defunding of obamacare, but gets a delay we are still better off than we would be if we just gave in.
One final note. OReilly said on his program, when asked about Jesus Resurrection, that his book Killing Jesus is about history and not about religion.
Hey if he included the religion in the history he wouldn't be popular at all the liberal parties, where being a Christian means you go to church around Christmas time.
