Bill O'Reilly Takes Aim At Stephen Colbert

 

Liberals, Progressives, and Gays, Oh, My!  Liberals, Progressives, and Gays, Oh, My!

Not to worry, Fox Nation. Bill O'Reilly has his blunderbuss and will protect ye.

As Christians close in on their holiest day, Easter,  Bill has put on the  armor of righteousness  to  join  battle with yet   another Anti-Christ: Stephen Colbert.  And he has opened fire.

O'Reilly recently appeared on the View  and took some pot shots at    the popular Colbert, the heir-apparent to David Letterman on CBS.  O'Reilly feels  Colbert is sort of a media Trojan horse.Someone who  will be invited into our bedrooms late at night and when we are at our most vulnerable,  covertly pervert  our  traditional values and American ideals.   O'Reilly will not stand idly by and let this Satan incarnate so deceive  a slumbering nation.

There may be some reason for O'Reilly's alarm. Colbert does lean toward an enlightened point of view.  I imagine he comes down on the side of reason.  And accepts scientific progress. Evolution. Climate change.

As for those tricky social wedge issues, it's a good bet Colbert respects women's reproductive rights, and favors comprehensive immigration reform, and background checks for buying guns, and the  limiting of  the influence of money in politics., and gay marriage.

Oh, My!

Load up on the gun powder, Mr. O'Reilly.  You're going to need it.

  • The difference (highlighted by the slide) is that Colbert realizes that the Colbear on the Colbear Reportay is an act. O'Reilly doesn't realize that O'Reilly is. Or maybe he is jealous that Michael Strahan and not he got the job on the Live with Kelly Lee show.

    Sort of similar to God not believing that he is Dennis Byrne.

  • Good point, Jack. Remember when O'Reilly went postal on Michael Moore?

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Not really, and as I mentioned in The Daily Beefing with regard to fascists and Russians in Ukraine, I don't have a dog in the fight you mentioned, either. Also, I don't have cable TV.

  • In reply to jack:

    That is a useful stance, and automatically creates a self-examination of why one would. Dennis Byrne wants you to have a 'dog in the fight', but so do those that fight with him.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    The fights I mentioned were O'Reilly vs.Moore, and Fascists vs. Russians.

    When I had proof (from the Supreme Court) that Byrne was full of baloney, I posted that on his site and told him I would not give him any more click count. And I have not.

    So, somehow you made a connection that does not exist.

  • In reply to jack:

    And the fights you mentioned have value systems connected to them, but okay, you are not involved.

    The fact is we all put things in an order of importance and so did you. People like Colbert remind me of those that are screaming look a baby wolf in the distance while the fox steals from the hen house. Your lack of interest may have been a refusal to look away, or just maybe a lack of cable.

  • In reply to 4zen:

    And those "foxes" are the favorites of Fox News.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    'Everything's coming up lap dog's'

    Happy Easter Aquinas!

  • In reply to 4zen:

    And also to you, 4zen. Thanks for looking in.

  • In reply to jack:

    Combination of picking one's fights, and that I don't support either value system advocated by the combatants.

    As for a futile fight, mine on another portion of Chicago Now is vs.Forrest "White Stroger" Claypool. Futile, but I have an interest in it. Supposedly Gov. Ectoplasm has one, too.

  • In reply to jack:

    Funny, jack, I would have taken you for a good liberal.

  • The point that got me is "a slumbering nation." There's nothing quite like looking at any of the late-night shows to make me realize that I'd be better off asleep!
