|Hate is when you make racist or hate speech comments about someone. For example, if someone says I hate Bill O'Reilly and I hope he dies in a car crash, that is hate. But when you publish statements where he lied, then using his own words from his own transcript, the audio tape, or the video tape, then prove it was a lie by showing the truth, that is not hate.
And yet, O'Reilly calls that hate, when there is no hate involved, it's just good journalism, he may not like it, because it makes him look bad, but it is not hate, and there is no hate speech anywhere. Then he claims all the hate is on the left, when asked why he does not report the hate on the right he says he cant find any. And he said if anyone has evidence of any hate on the right they should send it to him and he will report it. When Ted Kennedy had a seizure all the right-wing blogs, websites, and forums had hundreds and hundreds of postings calling for Kennedy to die.
"Pray They Are Defeated by Ballot Instead of Bullet," Warns One of the Ominous Posts Made in Early July and Still On the Site as of Today...[Update 8/15/08 5:05pm: The offending death threats discussed below, though not all of them, have now been removed by Townhall.com, and the writer's Townhall blog has had all comments scrubbed as well. So O'Reilly should therefore know about it all now, and can report on it next time Townhall's Amanda Carpenter joins him to dishonestly bash "far-left" blogs. Our cached version of the webpage still shows the offending more-than-month-old comments, as does the graphic at the bottom of this article.]
"Where is that rocket propelled grenade launcher when you need one," O'Reilly displayed on a chyron, and then "Let's hope the dissidents aim is good!" Both of the quotes are purported to be from a "Blog Posting" at Huffingtonpost, according to the Fox "News" graphic, posted in regard to a group of Iraq War Veterans who support the war effort.Failing to note any distinction between actual articles posted by contributors to the two sites versus comments from anonymous and pseudonymous users, O'Reilly accuses "bloggers" at the two sites of posting "despicable" material, even though it's unknown whether the commenters in question are actually rightwing posters, or even O'Reilly supporters, writing under a pseudonym. The entire segment is posted at left, as recorded yesterday by The BRAD BLOG's Alan Breslauer.
The trauma counseling team has moved on, the reports have dropped out of the daily news cycle and the sanctuary has been rededicated, but the Rev. Chris Buice is still trying to collect his thoughts on the gunman that invaded his congregation little more than a week ago.Pastor interested in effect of right-wing writings on accused shooter
Like most other people stunned by the fatal shooting July 27 at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church, which killed two and injured six other parishioners, its pastor wants to make sense of what led suspect Jim David Adkisson, 58, to interrupt the Sunday morning service with his shotgun.
In his first media interviews since the shooting, Buice said he's curious whether any clues might be gleaned from the writings of right-wing radio talk-show host Michael Savage and Fox News personalities Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity, whose books were seized as evidence from Adkisson's residence by police.
Fedele said she got the illustration in a number of chain e-mails and decided to reprint it for her members in the Trumpeter newsletter because she was offended that Obama would draw attention to his own race. She declined to say who sent her the e-mails with the illustration.The newsletter is not the first such episode Barajas has had to respond to this week. The Sacramento Bee on Wednesday posted an image it said was captured from the Sacramento County GOP Web site that showed Obama in a turban next to Osama bin Laden. It said: "The difference between Osama and Obama is just a little B.S." The site also encouraged members to "Waterboard Barack Obama," a reference to a torture technique.
"I didn't see it the way that it's being taken. I never connected," she said. "It was just food to me. It didn't mean anything else."
