A hidden agenda behind a veil of independence

Posted Oct 22 2008 4:32pm

Here's something to keep in mind as the 2008 election nears.

As much as he says he's independent, Bill O'Reilly really isn't. Only this time, he's using a mental health stereotype as a weapon in his manipulation.

From the liberal blog, News Hounds:

Bill O'Reilly Turns "Loony Left" Into Dangerous Killers

As the election grows closer, Bill O'Reilly's attacks grow more ruthless. His "far-left loon" routine has been kicked up a notch and now he claims the left is not only anti-Christian but also out of control,dangerous and sure to hurt or kill someone. [In November] on The Factor, he used three segments to hammer the message home which is exactly what he advised Republicans to do in his weekly column, 9/22, to prevent a Democratic win in 2008.

After Newt Gingrich claimed that there was an 80 percent chance that Democrats would be victorious in '08', O'Reilly sounded the alarm in his weekly column. He offered the following campaign advise to Republicans which he has been using diligently while campaigning on The O'Reilly Factor.

"Also, the far left is totally out of control in this country, and a smart Republican candidate will tie those loons around the necks of Hillary or Barack Obama. Few Americans want to see Rosie O'Donnell and George Soros spending the night in the Lincoln bedroom. "

So "out of control loons" continued to monopolize The Factor and he even managed to bring Rosie O'Donnell back into the spotlight even though she has been keeping a very low profile. The message of a dangerously violent left emerging was played up and O'Donnell was connected to it.

[In a November segment of] Talking Points, he referred to the arrest of Paul Addis, performance artist, who was caught entering a San Francisco Church with fireworks which O'Reilly said were explosives.

He made this extreme prediction about far left protesters.

"As "Talking Points" has stated, unless the situation is dealt with by the authorities, people are going to die. In the last couple of weeks, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has been assaulted, President Clinton shouted down and the Bill Maher program interrupted. The mainstream media has been largely silent in condemning these actions. And some loons are even encouraging them"

Medea Benjamin appeared to discuss the incident, called an "assault" by O'Reilly, involving a member of Code Pink confronting Condi Rice with a hand full of fake blood. O'Reilly reported that the protester was facing 10 years in prison which Benjamin said was untrue. She insisted that the charges were misdemeanors. It was clear that O'Reilly knew he had been caught exaggerating.

O'REILLY: All right, now she is, this Desiree Fairooz is charged with disorderly conduct, defacing government property, assault on a federal officer. She — these are felonies, I think.

BENJAMIN: No, these are misdemeanors.

O'REILLY: All misdemeanors.

BENJAMIN: Yes.

O'REILLY: If convicted, she could face 10 years in prison. Now.

BENJAMIN: That's not true.

O'REILLY: Well, that's what it says right here on the sheet. Maybe it's not, but the court date for her is December 5th. She could face up to 10 years in prison. That's what it says. Anyway.

BENJAMIN: No, they're misdemeanors.

Misdemeanor or not, O'Reilly got his message through and succeeded in hanging the "loons around the necks" of Democrats once again. Even after a segment about the horriffic right wing Westboro Baptist Church, O'Reilly mentioned the far left right before condemning Westboro. In fact, he claimed that the head of the church is a registered Democrat.

So make no mistake, Independent Bill is using The O'Reilly Factor to campaign for the Republicans.
