Okay, it’s over. We’re done.
So look, I’m declarin’ war on the ACLU. I think they’re a terrorist group.
This comes from a rant that he was giving about how “every single thing the United States government tries to do to protect us against terrorism, these people [the ACLU] oppose and they’ll sue.” He then jumps to the conclusion above. I don’t think that O’Reilly actually believes that, I think he just wanted to send some sparks flying.
But just the same, this asshole has now put the idea out into the mainstream that civil liberties are terrorism.
Well, okay, Media Matters tells us that this isn’t exaclty the first time O’Reilly has said such things.
“I have to pick on the ACLU because they’re the most dangerous organization in the United States of America right now. There’s by far. There’s nobody even close to that. They’re, like, second next to Al Qaeda.”
“Hitler would be a card-carrying ACLU member. So would Stalin.”
After reading those, I’m going to be picking up chunks of my brain off the floor for weeks. The most dangerous organization? So many other candidates come to mind, the LAPD, Wal-Mart, the IMF, Phillip-Morris, Monsanto, DuPont, the Aryan Nations, Congress… And why two totalitarians would want to join a pro-civil liberties group is beyond me. Maybe they have that “fear of success” I’m always hearing about.
In conclusion, Bill O’Reilly is high on goofballs, and is a fucking dick. Thank you and goodnight.
