I can't let Hunter have all the fun. I want to get on the O'Reilly "enemies list" too.

So here is my over the top answer to O'Reilly's latest, via Media Matters, with snark dripping everywhere:

On the November 28 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, host Bill O'Reilly pointed to "a very secret plan" by the "secular progressive" movement, which he said aims to "diminish Christian philosophy in the U.S.A."

. . . According to O'Reilly, the "secular progressive" movement has three elements:


  • First, progressive financiers George Soros and Peter Lewis "pour money into the ACLU [American Civil Liberties Union], they pour money into the smear websites, you know, they buy up a lot of media time."

  • Second, "the ACLU is their legal arm. ... [T]he ACLU runs around the country suing everybody and intimidating people."

  • Third, "the smear websites are their media arm."

Heh. O'Reilly numbers. I can count to 3. One, three. What a dope.

More:

O'Reilly said these three elements operate "in tandem"

A bicycle built for 3? No, that's not right.

O'REILLY: [Y]ou use your left-wing smear websites to go after anybody who stands up for Christmas. If you stand up for Christmas, they come after you. So the tandem intimidates. The tandem intimidates. Suing on one hand; smearing on the other hand.

But there is a plan says O'Reilly. A "secret plan":

O'REILLY: Well, that's right. I mean, if there's anything The Factor does it's bring the big picture to people so they understand what's going on, and -- because it isn't in a vacuum. I mean, the ACLU and George Soros and these websites don't operate day to day without a plan.

. . . There's a very secret plan. And it's a plan that nobody's going to tell you, "Well, we want to diminish Christian philosophy in the U.S.A. because we want X, Y, and Z." They'll never ever say that. But I'm kind of surprised they went after Christmas because it's such an emotional issue.

Hmmmmmm. A secret plan. George Soros. Against Christmas. ACLU. Hollywood. Liberal New York Elite. Wait a second! O'Reilly is talking about a new Protocols of the Elders of Zion!

I'll explain my facetious theory on the flip.

George Soros? Jew.

Want to kill Christmas? So O'Reilly supported the "The Passion of the Christ" right? Who killed Jesus in the movie? That's right. Jews.

And David Brock? Well, he's not Jewish. But that didn't stop Michael Savage:

From the May 18 Savage Nation:

SAVAGE: We have -- I don't know who this guy is, David Broken, or David Brockstein, David Brock -- talking about right-wing media.

Not actually a Jew? So what? just add a -stein and voila!

And, the ACL Jew of course. What? You think I'm paranoid? How about this:

In more recent years, Republicans think of the American Civil Liberties Union, an organization they despise, as ACL-Jew. Deep Jewish involvement in the civil rights movement aligned Jews with another group the right hates - African-Americans.

See? I have a link and everything.

So there you have it. Bill O'Reilly is at war with Jews. He is proposing a new pogrom.

What? Sounds loony? Is this slander? Well, I got more evidence than the neocons do. And that didn't stop David Brooks. And I got a hell of a lot more evidence than O'Reilly.

There. If that doesn't get me on the "enemies list" I am going to have to change my handle to Armando-stein.

To be clear, this is not a serious post. Any resemblance to an actual O'Reilly "secret plan" is purely coincidental.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  Is O'Reilly really important? (4.00)

    Why not a FP article on this: Bush sold us a $200 billion lemon, the Administration hasn't trained Iraqis in 3 years whereas our soldiers get going in 10-15 weeks and that when Republicans have repeatedly failed, why can they be trusted now?

    I think O'Reilly is irrelevant on the day that Bush is tryiing to stage a comeback.

                    mother recently moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, where she manufactures and designs furniture for a few corporations.  When I visit, she and I travel to various locations in the surrounding area, and we have developed a fondness for South Carolina.  Pumping gas a station in Greenville, South Carolina, my mother was accosted by the woman described in the above comment.  She asked my mother where she was from, and my mother answers, "Charlotte."  This answer did not satisfy the woman, who proceeded to ask where my mother REALLY was from.  My mother answered, and the woman, looking at me, said, "Well then, you and your son, who I think is a faggot, should not be in this country.  You are not even real Americans.  Look at your hair and your noses.  Did you not know this is a Christain country?"  My mother immediately paid her bill and told me to get into the automobile.  She then took her digital camera out of her purse and photographed the woman.  We then discovered that the woman, who was rushing into the gas station, most probably because she does not own a credit or debit card, had a W-04 patch stitched into the right back pocket of her stonewashed jeans.  We started to laugh hysterically, and she noticed we were staring at her.  She then approached my mother's car, but we sped away.  She was screaming unintelligible abuse and gesticulating incongruously, but we were not concerned with her performance as we were focused on leaving that city.

            I knew I should have said something about being a card-carrying member of the ACLU.

      I still am trying to understand why this loser is even part of the conversation.  He belongs at the kid's table, or better yet, out in the woodshed where he can tan his squirrel hides and talk to the tree people.  The guy's like that mentally disturbed cousin that you have to invite over for Seder (oh wait, I mean Christmas dinner)...you just hope he doesn't start talking after dessert and you can avoid the ensuing madness.

      I think the only time I've ever heard his radio show, I turned it off because I was obviously mistaken and the only parts of his TV show I've seen are on C&L and The Daily Show.  The guy's a loser, a prick, a propagandist and IMO, irrelevant to the discourse in this country.

      Last year I was listening to a broadcast of the monthly Miami-Dade School Board Meeting on their FM station (WLRN). It's the NPR affliliate in South Florida.

      I was appalled to hear one of the board members quote O'Reilly and use his words to make a point. It was like hero worship.

      I think O'Reilly is irrelevant on the day that Bush is tryiing to stage a comeback.
    •  Irrelevant? Try Corporate Mouthpiece (none)
      Unless you think the impact of Limbutt has been irrelevant on public politics and the national political discourse, we ignore O'Lielly rather than deride him into a gibbering grease spot at our peril.

      He is, after all, subsidized by none other than Maggie Thatcher's old blue-eyed boy, Sir Rupert Murdoch, which means that he's saying nothing but what one of the world's richest men and most powerful media magnates on any continent is thinking.

      He's just a pawn, a puppet. If you think that a puppet is no danger, what of the puppetmaster?

      Murdoch is preaching this "War on Christmas" gospel - custom-tailored for individual culture - on both sides of the Atlantic and has been pushing it hard for two years at least. He thinks it's important enough to push on his flagship paper The Sun in Britain.

      what did that, as Bill so aptly put it, "bullshitter with boogers for brains" do when he so lyingly invaded iraq? On the cheap, with nothing but the china-breakers. And we fired the iraqi cops and military. that, in itself, is a firing offense.

      Piss on you, tommy franks, for allowing it to happen. Piss on you, colin powell, for being the loyal soldier.

Piss on you, donald rumsfeld, for complaining about that same vase being looted and looted over again on TV. Piss on you, barbara bush, for infecting the "evil" gene into your offspring. despite being led hand-in-hand to the presidency, your hubby does has a gentler streak. Did you fuck him, or was it the other way around?

        I'm angry that O'Reilly is on to us Jews.  I thought we were doing a good job of hiding our plot to destroy Christmas.  Just last week at our Secret Anti-Christmas Meeting of the Jews I was daydreaming during the seminar on Reindeer Poison and it occurred to me that we need a long term plan.  What about when we succeed at eliminating Christmas? WHere do we go from there? I was thinking we could take out Easter, but we'll need to go after Ramadan and Diwali too, so we need to save our resources.  But then again, we're good at that, thanks to our Jewish Control of International Banking Instutitions.  Now, let's see, where is my JCIBI divided payment?  I need to cash this month's check to buy some more Manger-Busting Bombs and Elficide.

    I will not let you impugn my patriotism.  I have served in the military for 17 years (how long have YOU served?)  I have contributed to the ACLU from my enlisted salary in the past through the Combined Federal Campaign because, unlike you, they realize that the First Amendment to the Constitution that I have sworn to support and defend with my life is the most important one.  By saying that the ACLU is in league with Bin Ladin is to say that I am in league with Bin Ladin.  So, I beg of you, report me to my superiors, because I am obviously part of a third column in the US Navy.  You disgust me.  I expect either a criminal complaint against me, or an on-air apology to me, the ACLU and all Americans who know which amendment is the most important.

    If you want, call me at work so you can talk to my supervisor,
    a US Army LTC (since you are probably unfamiliar with military acronyms, that is Lieutenant Colonel).
    Call me at (Tek number) and I will put you on the line with my Colonel and you can report me.  But you wont because you are a coward.

    What a butt.  I am writing Today to complain.  I carefully avoid watching him and his angry angry lies and then he comes on to ruin my morning pop culture/ countdown to leaving the house.  He is a loon, and if Katie Couric thinks the cute amazement at that much angry bile at 7:30 A.M. will get her Dan Rather's CBS spot as anchor, that just tells you how low the corporate news media has sunk.  Even I can imagine it needing more than 6 weeks to train the Iraqis in basic training.  At least Matt Lauer embarrassed Bush now and then.

    We got to hear the anger at the Christmas Tree crap and old Katie chimed in Rockefeller Square was always a Christmas Tree.  The war on political correctness is just about over- but O'Reilly keeps on keeping on.

  •  O'Reilly: 'you gotta go to Israel' (4.00)
    Let us not forget O'Falafel's desire to make Jews leave the country:
    O'REILLY: All right. Well, what I'm tellin' you, [caller], is I think you're takin' it too seriously. You have a predominantly Christian nation. You have a federal holiday based on the philosopher Jesus. And you don't wanna hear about it? Come on, [caller] -- if you are really offended, you gotta go to Israel then. I mean because we live in a country founded on Judeo -- and that's your guys' -- Christian, that's my guys' philosophy. But overwhelmingly, America is Christian. And the holiday is a federal holiday honoring the philosopher Jesus. So, you don't wanna hear about it? Impossible.

  •  O'Reilly is psychiatrically ill, and I am not (none)
    kidding. But I have said this so many times that I won't go into it again.

    I was brought up in the largest mainstream Protestant church in Canada. (It was was very middle of the road at that time but it is now very liberal and progressive.) The fundamentalist sects in my neighborhood and borough (of which there were many) were noticeably anti-semitic. I went to a fundamentalist summer camp for about seven years and I was very exposed to their way of thinking so I know what I am talking about. This was in the mid to late sixties.

    About twenty years ago the fundie leaders started pretending they looooooved the Jews. I never believed it for a second. Scratch the surface and the anti-semitism starts emerging.

    I have always thought that part of what gives Bush and Cheney some of their negative energy is a visceral dislike of New York and everything it stands for: multiple cultures, races, religions, sexual orientations, hoity toity intellectuals, and Jews.

    Just call me lecsmithowitz.

    Bush/Cheney want to stay in Iraq. The question is, why? Answer: 1 superembassy, 14 military bases, and oil.

  •  Instead of giving a ratstail about O'Lielly's list (4.00)
    we should be trying to get a rumble started between MSNBC and FOX over this. I realize that the MSNBC entry is all about Keith Olbermann, and Bill O'Reilly being completely afraid to have an 'Al Franken's Book' situation come to him by naming him outright as the 'enemy', but this could be fun.

    Imagine if O'Reilly -who is a dumbass who sometimes speaks before he thinks- could be baited into saying some shit about Chris Matthews or the Russett Potato instead of Keith? Or if Tweety bird could be baited into giving some flack O'Reilly's way? BOOM! Its on, baby.

    And it would be like watching Michael Bolton and Kenny G in a brawl. You can't lose.

      •  You want on his enemies list? (none)
        That is so easy I can't believe it hasn't been mentioned to you yet...

        all you have to do is call in to Billy O'Reilly's lame Radio Show specifically as 'Armando from the notoriously leftwing Bush hating Daily Kos' and throw down. They will put you on and I will tell you why:

        Bill O'Reilly is an ignorant idiot when it comes to blogs. Computers in general. Worse than my dad trying to 'check the electrical mail delivered inside the computer and wondering if you have to buy electric stamps to use it'. He thinks MediaMatters is a hatesite and that Powerline is non-partisan. That tells me he gets all of his info from computer literate folks on staff, not because he knows what he is talking about.

        Imagine what Johnny the Freeper in his office at NYC is going to tell him in a blurb about the DailyKos when he puts his hand over the mic and says 'what the hell is a DailyKos??? Armando?? What the hell is this all about?? Quick. Back on the air in 5 and I gotta say something good to this guy. Give me a run down. Now."

    We got moles in the organization. MOLES, I say. Well, not really. We just want others to think  we have moles.

    We have layers of security and much of the plan is fragmented and distributed to separate elemenets. That way, no one person knows the whole plan. Ha ha.

    O'Reilly may THINK he knows about our plan. Little does he know that part of the plan was to let him discover that we have a plan. But of course, the plan we let him know about is the wrong secret plan. Hee hee.

    The real secret plan is a very bad plan. Oh it is very, very bad. It is so bad that a lot of innocent people will get hurt, it is so bad.

    I was on the ACLU forum about 6 months ago, and one of the resident fundies--a rather nice lady, wife of a preacher, and who works as a public school teacher--was frothing at the mouth over Landover Baptist church as BLASPHEMY!

Perhaps adding a tube of KY Warming Lubricant would add that personal touch.

    And I really don't understand the Jew-baiting that's going on. Sure, my homies are predominantly liberal, but what about Perle, Feith, and Wolfowitz? Or even Michael *spit* Savage? Are "tame" Jews the only ones tolerated by the fundie putschniks?

    So I hope I can ask this rhetorical question without drawing critisisms of racism or xenophobia.

    What is it about the Irish, then, that leads us down such uncompromising roads of thought, its boudaries so clearly drawn, so black and white, so cock-sure, so full of vitriol and venum for those unfaithful souls who dare to oppose us.

    What is it, I ask you again, about we Irish?

    Is it a love of the simple then, that is the essence of the Irish? Or maybe it's the fear of the unknown?

    Wouldn't it be better, me wonders, if we could percieve more of the many shades of grey?

    Wouldn'l it be better, me thinks, to seek compromise rather than conflict, to promote tolerance for other cultures rather than to enflame a "culture war" that doesn't even really exist -- but in the minds of loons -- and unless, by some ungodly works, it should become a self fulfilling lunar prophecy.

    And yet in spite of all this blarney, I have heard it oft' said that all the world loves an Irishman.
