Bill O’Reilly just loves to call people he disagrees with “pinheads.” Of course, this is classic projection, as O’Reilly is the real pinhead who can never admit when he’s wrong.
Earlier this week, during a discussion of so-called “sanctuary cities” in America, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to remain a sanctuary city for undocumented immigrants who have done nothing wrong. It was a slap in the face of conservatives who get their propaganda and marching orders from Fox News.
But it was what one official of that board said that enraged O’Reilly the most. Supervisor Malia Cohen remarked:
“We cannot allow hateful conservative news stations to drive how we respond to incidents in our city. I’m not afraid of Fox News and they don’t influence how I make my policy decisions here in San Francisco. We can talk all we want about improving public safety in this building, but if people in our community don’t trust law enforcement, no level of police staffing is going to make our community safe.”
But the way O’Reilly reacted, you would have thought Cohen had just called for the Fox News headquarters in New York city to be razed to the ground. O’Reilly even said Cohen should be arrested and charged! Here’s what he said:
“Let me be very clear. That woman is a disgrace, and if I were the attorney general of the United States, I would immediately place her under arrest. I might not win the case, but I would send a message to all subversive office holders in this country, that if you do not obey federal law, you yourself will be prosecuted.”
You would also be laughed out of court and reprimanded by the presiding judge, Bill.
As usual, O’Reilly doesn’t have a clue as to what he’s talking about. Facts are irrelevant to him, and anyone who dares to disagree with one of his inane opinions is suddenly his enemy.
Bill, next time you want to see a true pinhead, go find a mirror.
