Yet in more recent years mindful of his audience demographics, O'Reilly turned around and often will rant about some phantom "radical homosexual agenda" to destroy the American Family and way of life.
Our good friends over the Center for American Progress have done the homework on this...
- While discussing the case of two male Massachusetts prison inmates who requested prison officials' permission to marry, O'Reilly asserted that "this crazy gay marriage insanity -- is gonna lead to all kinds of things like this" like "somebody" coming "in and say[ing], 'I wanna marry the goat.' " (Radio Factor; 04/13/05)
- O'Reilly has argued that legalizing same-sex marriage will lead to nuptials between humans and other species, saying that "[o]ne of the arguments against gay marriage ... is that if it becomes law, all other alternative marital visions will be allowed." He then related the story of a British woman, Sharon Tendler, who "married" a dolphin in Israel. (O'Reilly Factor; 01/04/06)
- While discussing New York City Councilwoman Christine Quinn's decision to boycott Manhattan's St. Patrick's Day parade over the decision by the Ancient Order of Hibernians to ban the Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization (ILGO) from marching, O'Reilly attacked Quinn, calling ILGO's potential participation in the parade "inappropriate." O'Reilly asked, "Why doesn't Ms. Quinn and others who support her wise up?" and stated: "You have your Gay Day parade. You have your Stonewall celebration. You have your Halloween deal, OK? You don't need this."
And now this sex-obsessed loudmouth freak has decided that a company that has any marketing targeted specifically to Gays and Lesbians may as well be marketing to Al-Queda . Yes, in Bill Reilly's world being Gay is no different than being a terrorist. (via Media Matters)
Wow that ad has two of three things FOX hates most. It was French and Gay. If they could have found a way to work Hugo Chavez or Barack Obama into it, O'Reilly's head would have exploded. What is interesting here is how often O'Reilly tries to link homosexuality and terrorism. The two topics clearly get him excited in ways that not even sharing Greek food in the shower could.
What is clear is this, a sexually dysfunctional pervert is comparing millions of Americans to terrorists simply to try to show how butch he is. Bill O'Reilly is a freak, who's personal obsession with attacking the lives and rights of LGBT Americans (and French fast food patrons too apparently...) rather than adding anything to our national debate on issues of diversity, instead says far more about Bill O'Reilly's own personal demons and insecurities.
And what's more by spouting off his ignorant bile, Bill O'Reilly owes a huge apology to all the friends and families of LGBT Americans who were victims of Al-Queda. Heroes like Mark Bingham who helped thwart the hijackers of United flight 93. (John A at Americablog has brilliant post on this ...)
By slamming their memory and sacrifice Bill O'Reilly has shown his true colors. He is an anti American, amoral, sociopath who equates being loud with being right.
