5-6-09 -- Remember when O'Reilly said he respects dissent and that he was not arrogant or mean to anyone on the left for anything they said, or any protests they had. That was all O'Reilly spin, it's all lies. Last night he attacked the Boss Bruce Springsteen, he called him un-American and said he is not a patriot.
O'REILLY: Caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. "The Factor" begins right now.
You know what O'Reilly, you are a right-wing jackass, and most Americans agree with Bruce, not you.
Hi, I'm Bill O'Reilly, thanks for watching us tonight. How the Republican party can make a comeback. That is the subject of this evening's "Talking Points Memo".
Right now, the Democratic party holds almost all the cards as you know. If President Obama is successful turning the economy around, the Dems may even become more dominant in the years to come. That scenario is not really healthy for the USA as a vibrant two-party system is needed in order to solve complex problems and prevent the arrogance and corruption of entrenched ideology.
The loudest voices for the Dems are now far left zealots who believe America is a flawed nation. Here's a good example. The other day a birthday party concert was held for left wing singer Pete Seeger, who's 90 years old. Bruce Springsteen, among others, performed at the concert. And then Bruce popped off as he often does.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
BRUCE SPRINSTEEN, SINGER: At 90, he remains a stealth dagger through the heart of our country's illusions. He sings all the verses, all the time. Especially the ones that we'd like to leave out of our history as people.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
O'REILLY: That's right, Bruce. We all have false illusions that America is a noble nation. A country that has freed billions of people all over the world at great cost. A country that provides so much opportunity to the poor that more than 20 million people have illegally entered the USA. Do you get that Bruce?
Why don't you take a look at your mansion, nice car, expensive comforts and get a little perspective. You're a working class guy, right, Bruce? Capitalism combined with your talent has made you a wealthy guy. It would not have happened in Venezuela.
Now Bruce Springsteen is not exactly a PH.D. in political science obviously. But his snide reference to America defines how the far left sees this country. And you know what? Most liberal and conservative Americans disagree with him.
O'REILLY: So let me spell this out so that even the Republican leadership can understand it. Get solutions to problems. Explain your culture war positions clearly and without spite. And most importantly, stick up for America, because the Democrats are certainly not doing that. Use that strategy, GOP., and you'll get back in the game.
Then the two morons Rove and O'Reilly went on to trash Springsteen, Obama, and the Democrats even more.
O'REILLY: All right, but the Democratic party has been very successful in demonizing the Republicans as a bunch of people who say no to everything., are bigoted, you know, because of their social issues of gay marriage and illegal immigration. And they've been very, very successful in doing that. And I would say that conservatives are now on the defensive and the Republican party certainly is.
Hey O'Reilly, you and Rove are the misguided, do you not know that Obama has a 67% job approval rating.
O'REILLY: But if you take the patriot issue. The one I just defined because this snide stuff that Springsteen does, believe me, and you know this, is all over the left wing media. Every day. We're bad, we're bad.
O'REILLY: Barack Obama, the president of the United States went overseas pretty much reinforced that to the rest of the world. Yeah, we are bad. Yeah, yeah, yeah. And if the Republican party would start to seize the high ground there and say we're not bad. These people are misguided. They don't know -- you can take the momentum and swing it right back.
O'REILLY: You're too involved with politics and not involved enough with emotion.
Notice how O'Reilly keeps saying "we" the "we" is him and Rove and the Republican party. Bill O'Reilly just referred to himself as a Republican, he said "we" have to fight the Democrats over culture issues and patriotism, even though he denies being a Republican. What happened is he forgot for a minute or two that he pretends he is not a Republican and he let the "we" stuff slip out. OOPS!
ROVE: No, no, no. No, no, no, Bill, let me finish.
O'REILLY: Go ahead.
ROVE: Let me finish. We've got to stand for a cultural view, for patriotic view of America, and seize the opportunities that were given by Democrats in Congress.
O'REILLY: They're handing it to you.
ROVE: .and by Democrats in the White House.
O'REILLY: They're handing it to you.
ROVE: Well, they hand it to us, you're right. When the president went abroad and basically said America is arrogant, you know, in France, of all places, I mean, talk about arrogant, I mean, the French. And yet, he went there and sort of condemned America. Now I call it his apology tour.
And I think we do need to seize on moments like that and contrast our view, which is a hopeful and optimistic view of our country's future and a proud and patriotic future of our country's existence.
O'REILLY: Yeah, but that's got to be the first salvo. And then you can go back into the other issues, but you've got to define yourself as apart from the Bruce Springsteens of the world. And it's not being done.
ROVE: .but if he goes abroad, we need to seize that moment.
O'REILLY: All right.
ROVE: But we have to hit on all three of those cylinders at once.
ROVE: We've got to hit on the economy, culture, and kitchen table issues.
So there you have it folks, O'Reilly and Rove just trashed the Boss Bruce Springsteen, President Obama, and all the Democrats, they said they are un-American and that they are not patriots. But he claims he is fair to Obama and the Democrats and that he has no agenda. Then he pulls this right-wing un-American garbage with Rove, even after he said he respects dissent.
And this garbage that Bruce, Obama, and all Democrats are not patriots is nothing but right-wing spin, it's meant to smear them and give the American people the false impression that they do not love their country. Frankly it's an outrage to even say they are not patriots, just because they admit we have done some bad things, and that they happened when Bush and the Republicans were in power. The un-American thing here is O'Reilly and Rove calling Bruce and Obama un-American for simply telling the truth about the bad things Bush and his administration did.
