Yes, another "Bill O'Reilly is a blubbering vagina" rant..
Over the past few months I've started viewing Bill O'Reilly like that neighborhood bum who incoherently talks to himself, those few fleeting moments that you can actually make out what he's saying it always has something to do with him being the son of god or some shit - the best course of action is to leave him to his lunacy and go about your business. Sure, sometimes you have to put your foot in that Bum's ass if he tries to break into your house or inappropriately talk to your young daughter - the only times I took issue with O'Reilly is when he vents his frustration on Hip Hop when he's just mad that he can't say "Nigger" as liberally as he wants to, or on those rare occasions when Oprah Winfrey picks up the crack pipe and feels that Mr. O'Reilly is the reincarnation of Edward R. Murrow. But the bile that has oozed out of the sides of Mr. O'Reilly's mouth as of late has provoked me to say something.
See, recently two teens in my city of Virginia Beach, Alison Kunhardt, 17, and Tessa Tranchant, 16, were killed by a drunk driver who rammed in the back of them at 60 miles per hour. My heart sincerely goes out to both set of parents who lost a child way too young, I can't even imagine what a horrible a loss of that magnitude must feel like. But since the driver in question was an illegal immigrant, one that has had prior drunken driving offenses, Bill O'Reilly took it upon himself to shamelessly do what he does best - take a tragedy and use it as a political football for ratings.
So for the past week or so, starting with a weird "what the fuck are you doing on FOX while your daughters body isn't cold yet" interview with one of the grieving parents, Bill has been spewing the same right wing rhetoric about immigration - calling my town a "sanctuary city" in terms of illegals and painting my mayor and the police chief as "villains". Listen, the last thing I'd usually want to do is stick up for the local police department, my shenanigans over the years have forced many of my city's finest to start referring to me by my childhood nickname and shit. I also feel kind of creepy defending a lady who literally lives 6 houses away from mine, the mayor, especially since she was the one responsible for the national guard beating black peoples heads in like candy was going to come falling out during "Greek-fest" almost 2 years ago.(see: Public Enemy's "Welcome to the Terrordome") But the one thing that Bill, the legion of inbred plaque scrapers who make up his fan base, even the local editorial pages who couldn't embarrass themselves more if they publicly smeared themselves in their own fecal matter - is that immigration is a federal issue, the city's take their cues from the federal government.
But why let a little thing like facts get in the way of political red meat as far as the right wingers are concerned, lets just hope they choke to death on it - or get Salmonella, but even that wouldn't be the proper punishment for turning the deaths of these 2 young women into a right wing talking point.
