Hypocrisy Alert: O'Reilly Refers to a Liberal as a Nazi (Again)

  • 2-29-08 -- This is conclusive proof that Bill O'Reilly is a far right hypocrite with double standards. In his world it is never ok to refer to a Republican as a Nazi, he has said it is wrong, and that it should never happen.

    For example, in 2004 when moveon.org asked their members to submit political ads to run against George W. Bush, they revieved 1,512 entries. ONE ad compared Bush to Hitler, and it was removed from the website as soon as they found out about it. The ad was never used, and never ran on tv. And in fact, if the Republicans had not given the ad publicity, nobody would have known about it, and nobody would have ever seen it.

    When the ad became public O'Reilly, other Republicans, and FOX News spent a week criticizing it. O'Reilly condenmed the ad, said it was despicable and disrespectful, and that Nazi references should never be used. O'Reilly cited the ads as evidence that "right now in America the Democratic party is being held captive by the far, far left."

    RNC Chairman Ed Gillespie called the ad, "the worst and most vile form of political hate speech." Jack Rosen wrote about the ad in the Wall Street Journal. He said "comparing the commander-in-chief of a democratic nation to the murderous tyrant Hitler is not only historically specious, it is morally outrageous."

    Then on Wednesday night O'Reilly had Katherine Ham on to discuss the internet. He mentioned some comments made at the Huffington Post on a post concerning Nancy Reagan's injury, where a few people who do not write for the huffington post left a few nasty comments on the free speech comments page. Comments that have since been removed.

    O'Reilly said this:

    O'REILLY: "I don't see a difference between Arianna Huffington and the Nazis."

    O'REILLY: "What's the difference between the Ku Klux Klan and Arianna Huffington?"

    O'REILLY: "There's no difference between what Huffington and Nazis do."

    O'REILLY: "The whole (Huffington Post) is a sewer."

    Even Mary Katherine Hamm, the right wing conservative editor of Townhall.com found herself cringingly disagreeing with Bill. She knew what happened so she defended Arianna, even though she is a conservative.

    Here is what happened. Thousands of comments are left on articles posted at the huffingtonpost blog every day, thousands. The people who leave comments do not work for the huffingtonpost, or write for the huffingtonpost.

    A few nut jobs left some nasty comments on a Nancy Reagan article, saying they hope she dies in a bathtub etc.

    Then O'Reilly calls Arianna a Nazi, and says her blog is a sewer. Over a few comments (out of thousands of comments) left by people who do not work for or write for the huffingtonpost. Everyone knows that blog comments are free speech and generally not censored or edited. And many nasty things are left in the comments section on the right-wing blogs too. But O'Reilly dont send his spies to those blogs to report on what they are saying.

    It's total right-wing bias, total hypocrisy, and a double standard by O'Reilly. Not to mention, unfair, and misleading.

    The whole thing was a right-wing gotcha smear job by O'Reilly. The same thing he goes nuts over when someone else does it to him, or another Republican, when he does the exact same thing.

    Not to mention the total hypocrisy of using the Nazi reference when he has said nobody should use Nazi references, I guess it's ok when he does it, but not ok when anyone else does it. O'Reilly is the king of hypocrisy and double standards. If he wanted to he could find hundreds (if not thousands) of vile and nasty comments left on republican blogs, but he dont.

    He only reports on nasty comments left on liberal blogs. I could fill a book with nasty comments made about liberals on conservatives blogs, yet O'Reilly acts like people on the left are the only ones doing it. Not to mention the comments section is a free speech zone on blogs, they dont have to censor those comments, or remove them, but sometimes they do, O'Reilly just dont tell you about it.

    He is too busy trying to make liberals look bad by smearing them with Nazi references. And how in the hell do you justify calling someone a Nazi over a few comments made in the free speech section of a blog.

    It's 100% proof that O'Reilly is nothing but a spinning, lying, right-wing propagandist.
