So, not only does Bill O’Reilly blame “far-left zealots” and “Fox News haters” for exploiting the murder of Dr. George Tiller, but, according to him, they’re also to blame for the shooting outside of an Army recruiting center in Little Rock, Arkansas. The gunman, identified by the police as Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad of Little Rock, was upset with the killing of Muslims in Iraq and Afghanistan.
O’REILLY: Since they have been unrelenting in describing their country as a torture nation, I’m sure that set this muslim guy off to kill one and wound another of our military and I’m sure that’s NBC’s fault. Look, the absurdity of this is beyond the pale.
Bill O’Reilly is full of crap. It had nothing to do with anybody “describing their country as a torture nation.” The U.S. is, in fact, a nation that has tortured, under the Bush Administration, and it is involved in two wars with Muslim countries, thanks to the Bush Administration. Those are the facts, neither of which have anything to do NBC, or progressive bloggers, and more to do with Bush and Cheney.
O’Reilly is correct about one thing though: “the absurdity of this is beyond pale.”
