The sad thing is, that O’Reilly thinks he is very intelligent.

Pathetic.

IIRC, a Kennedy Justice Dept was wiretapping MLK Jr. as well.

Joe McCarthy was picked as the Godfather of Bobby’s daughter, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. I know that Bobby sought a job from Joe, but I thought that he didn’t get it. I’ll have to re-read “Blacklisted by History” for the answer, according to the author at least.

In answer to Ann’s first question - no, people do NOT read any more. And many of them are unable to construct a cogent thought on paper, either, as reasoned logic and true rhetoric have been almost abandoned, both as a scholarly pursuit and in its daily application.

But they can be whizzes at name-calling and ridicule, should the occasion arise. That is why a “discussion on race” degenerates into who has the more powerful bullhorn.

If you want to say something nice about Bobby Kennedy, remind everyone that he proudly worked for Sen. Joe McCarthy.

heh.

No guilt ridden liberal has ever done any good for the minority community. Government dependency programs have destroyed the African American family. Bobby Kennedy was a dangerous and ambitious narcissist. The Black community were simply used by the Left. Just what in his public or private record is O’Reilly citing? IMHO his ode to Kennedy was simply done to appear “fair and balanced” by saying something nice about a Democrat.

The Kennedys played both sides in the racial struggles of the late 1950’s and 1960’s. They tried to win over both blacks and Democrat segregationists at the same time. They told both groups they were on their side and emboldened both sides to engage in confrontations and riots.

But the Kennedys were paragons of honesty compared to LBJ. As a Congressman LBJ opposed Federal laws to end lynching and other violence in the South. As leader of the Senate LBJ worked to sabotage voting rights laws and civil rights laws proposed by the Eisenhower Administration. LBJ supported the KKK and Democrat segregationists throughout his career.

LBJ then presented himself as a champion of civil rights in the 1960’s.After having ignored and sabotaged responsible black leaders throughout his career LBJ allied himself with the leftist black radicals in the 1960’s. The result was violence, race riots and racial animosity that continues until this day.

Good piece by Ann.

When I used to watch BOR I loved to see him use the word bloviating because it describes him perfectly.

He’s first rate at bloviating and blowing, he blows anyone off that makes a correct statement he doesn’t like.

Just Bill O’Reilly’s opinion. He was wrong, but O’Reilly and Coulter were both trying not to give LBJ credit.

I was appalled when O'Reilly said that on last night's show, in view of the role Eisenhower played in securing the first Civil Rights legislation since Reconstruction; he also integrated the military, AND established the agency that Kennedy would rename the Peace Corps. Glad Ann jumped all over this.

O'Reilly has never gotten over his Irish Catholic Democrat upbringing in Levittown. He even said in Killing Kennedy that families like his all had a portrait of Kennedy in their homes and regarded him as a near-saint. He went on in the book to excuse all of the reckless, smartass Kennedy's terribly bad judgment in Bay of Pigs, extramarital affairs covered up by the press, pissing off scores of pressure groups who would want to have him killed, etc., and even as a ghost-written biographer who calls himself an historian, O'Reilly could never let go of worshipping Kennedy. A very disappointing book for me, after having very much enjoyed Killing Lincoln.

Fact: any conversation that begins with "You're a racist" is not going to end well.

The point is that the left, intentionally, does not want this to end well.

Does it end worse for the 13% or for the other 87% if this conversation is not approached with civility? That is the conversation that we should be having.

Nixon integrated more southern schools than JFK and Johnson combined - while RFK was Attorney General for both......

Good article by Coulter. Why does Bill O'Reilly continue to comment and write on subjects about which he know little or nothing? Because people know me as a history buff, several people asked me if I watched O'Reilly's "Killing Lincoln". They were disappointed when I told them "no, I don't trust O'Reilly to get the facts straight on anything".

At best, O'Reilly skims the facts of subjects that intererest him. He's the sort of "reader" for whom Reader's Digest Condensed Books were invented.
