[VIDEO] Bill O’Reilly Yells at George Will: ‘You are LYING…You’re a HACK!’

O’Reilly Responds to George Will: He ‘Regurgitates Attacks’ from Reagan Loyalists

“it IS a laudatory book or you CAN’T READ!”

— Bill O’Reilly

“It is doing the work of the left, which knows that in order to discredit conservatism, it must destroy Reagan’s reputation as a president, and your book does the work of the American left with its extreme recklessness…”

— George Will

Bill O’Reilly responded to his Fox News colleague George Will on Thursday night after the syndicated columnist criticized O’Reilly’s book Killing Reagan, calling it a “tissue of unsubstantiated assertions.”

O’Reilly dedicated about a minute of his primetime Fox News show to a response to Will’s column, pointing out first that Will did not correctly distinguish between “slander” and “libel.”

“George Will regurgitates attacks on the book from Reagan loyalists who tried to get Killing Reagan spiked even before it was published, because they wanted a deification of the president, not an honest look at him,” O’Reilly said.

“The book’s perfunctory pieties about Reagan’s greatness are inundated by its flood of regurgitated slanders about his supposed lassitude and manipulability. This book is nonsensical history and execrable citizenship, and should come with a warning: ‘Caution — you are about to enter a no-facts zone.’”

— Will wrote in his column on Thursday

“George Will regurgitates attacks on the book from Reagan loyalists who tried to get Killing Reagan spiked even before it was published, because they wanted a deification of the president, not an honest look at him,” O’Reilly said.

In his column, Will launched a blistering attack on the book, writing that O’Reilly uses little evidence to support many of his claims….(read more)

UPDATE: Josh Feldman writes:

Bill O’Reilly exploded and repeatedly called George Will a “hack” tonight in a fierce battle over whether O’Reilly’s book Killing Reagan is factually accurate.

O’Reilly’s gotten criticism from people close to Reagan over the book, and he fired back by saying they don’t want the truth being told. Will yesterday took things one step further when he tore intoO’Reilly’s book and called it a “no-facts zone.”

Well, responding last night was not enough for O’Reilly, and he invited Will on today. To start, O’Reilly said that Will libeled him and claimed Will was supposed to call him before running the column and didn’t.

Will said he had no such obligation and snarked that it wouldn’t be the first time O’Reilly’s gotten something wrong. When O’Reilly kept on the point, he asked, “Do you want to talk about Bill O’Reilly or Bill O’Reilly’s book?” Read the rest of this entry »

Daniel Greenfield: How Islam in America Became a Privileged Religion

muslims

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

 writes: What is Islam? The obvious dictionary definition answer is that it’s a religion, but legally speaking it actually enjoys all of the advantages of race, religion and culture with none of the disadvantages.islam

“Islamist organizations have figured out how lock in every advantage of race, religion and culture, while expeditiously shifting from one to the other to avoid any of the disadvantages.”

Islam is a religion when mandating that employers accommodate the hijab, but when it comes time to bring it into the schools, places that are legally hostile to religion, American students are taught about Islam, visit mosques and even wear burkas and recite Islamic prayers to learn about another culture. Criticism of Islam is denounced as racist even though the one thing that Islam clearly isn’t is a race.

Islamist organizations have figured out how lock in every advantage of race, religion and culture, while expeditiously shifting from one to the other to avoid any of the disadvantages.

“Islam is a theocracy. When it leaves the territories conquered by Islam, it seeks to replicate that theocracy through violence and by adapting the legal codes of the host society to suit its purposes.”

The biggest form of Muslim privilege has been to racialize Islam. The racialization of Islam has locked in all the advantages of racial status for a group that has no common race, only a common ideology.

FF-Islamic-Kingdom

Islam is the only religion that cannot be criticized. No other religion has a term in wide use that treats criticism of it as bigotry. Islamophobia is a unique term because it equates dislike of a religion with racism. Its usage makes it impossible to criticize that religion without being accused of bigotry.

By equating religion with race, Islam is treated not as a particular set of beliefs expressed in behaviors both good and bad, but as an innate trait that like race cannot be criticized without attacking the existence of an entire people. The idea that Islamic violence stems from its beliefs is denounced as racist.

“By equating religion with race, Islam is treated not as a particular set of beliefs expressed in behaviors both good and bad, but as an innate trait that like race cannot be criticized without attacking the existence of an entire people. The idea that Islamic violence stems from its beliefs is denounced as racist.”

Muslims are treated as a racial collective rather than a group that shares a set of views about the world.

That has made it impossible for the left to deal with ex-Muslims like Ayaan Hirsi Ali or non-Muslims from Muslim families like Salman Rushdie. If Islam is more like skin color than an ideology, then ex-Muslims, like ex-Blacks, cannot and should not exist. Under such conditions, atheism is not a debate, but a hate crime. Challenging Islam does not question a creed; it attacks the existence of an entire people.

Muslim atheists, unlike all other atheists, are treated as race traitors both by Muslims and leftists. The left has accepted the Brotherhood’s premise that the only authentic Middle Easterner is a Muslim (not a Christian or a Jew) and that the only authentic Muslim is a Salafist (even if they don’t know the word).

The racialization of Islam has turned blasphemy prosecutions into an act of tolerance while making a cartoon of a religious figure racist even when it is drawn by ex-Muslims like Bosch Fawstin. The New York Times will run photos of Chris Ofili’s “The Holy Virgin Mary” covered in dung and pornography, but refuses to run Mohammed cartoons because it deems one anti-religious and the other racist.

[VIDEO] WAGE GAP PANIC: Gavin McInnes Gleefully Baits Tamara Holder: ‘Thank U for Making @tamaraholder Head Xplode’

Or, as Ace puts it:

Gavin McInnes, Tamara Holder Have Respectful, Thoughtful Exchange of Ideas on Feminism

[Note: broken video link updated]

Mediaite gets the vapors:

 writes: Sean Hannity panel tonight exploded when Gavin McInnes argued that many women are miserable because they “put work over family” — a result of modern feminism, he argued.

While debating the gender wage gap, McInnes asserted that women earn less “because they choose to” and are “less ambitious.” Tamara Holder was pretty taken aback, flatly telling her counterpart: “Your comments are absolutely deplorable.” (read more – Mediaite)

Even Fox host Sean Hannity squirmed (and laughed) during Gavin’s gleefully over-the-top rant. HuffPo‘s takedown:

liberals-in-shock-590

“Women do earn less in American because they choose to. They would rather go to their daughter’s piano recital than stay all night at work, working on a proposal, so they end up earning less. They’re less ambitious.”

“What?” replied an incredulous Holder.

“This is sort of God’s way — this is nature’s way — of saying women should be at home with the panic-bettykids,” he said. “They’re happier there.”

“If you were a real feminist you would support housewives and see them as the heroes and women who work wasting their time.”

“Why am I sitting here?” Holder asked at one point.

“You’re making a mistake,” he responded. “You would be much happier at home with a husband and children.”

Even host Sean Hannity did a face palm at that comment. “Oh boy,” he said, laughing…(read more)

APOLOGY UNNECESSARY: Minnesota Newspaper Reconsiders, Corrects, Apologizes for Calling Obama an ‘Assclown’

Adding to the list of “things Obama has been called in the past week,” which already included the Antichrist, the Seventh King, and a rape suspect, we now have “assclown.”

Kevin Cusick, a sports producer for the Pioneer Press, apologized Monday for using the term to refer to President Barack Obama in a slideshow that included Obama’s selfie-stick moment from a BuzzFeed video.

“A fool-proof way to make yourself look like a self-absorbed assclown,” the caption read.

Behold, a screengrab:

“After further review, it’s a poor choice of word,” Cusick told local news station KMSP. “I must have been in an especially foul mood last night. I’ve toned it down a bit.” The caption has now replaced “assclown” with “celebrity.”

Follow-up: can there really be a fool-proof way to make yourself look like a fool? Isn’t that…(read more)

‘I Do Apologize For Any Of Our Viewers Who May Have Been Offended By That’

Charlie Hebdo Writer Holds Up Muhammed Cover on Sky News; Network Cuts Away and Apologizes

Andrew Kirell reports: While several major news outlets in the United States have resisted showing the Muhammed-depicting cover of Charlie Hebdo‘s first issue following last week’s massacre, it appears as though their squeamishness is not nearly as severe as that of media in the United Kingdom.

“I’m very sad, very sad that journalists in UK do not support us, that journalists in UK betray what journalism is about by thinking that people cannot be grown enough to decide if a drawing is offending or not. Because you are not even showing it.”

Hebdo writer Caroline Fourest appeared Wednesday evening on SkyNews to tout her magazine’s hot-selling post-attack issue, with cover art showing Muhammed holding up a “Je Suis Charlie” sign and a caption reading “All Is Forgiven.”

“It is completely crazy that in UK you cannot show a simple drawing as that.”

— Hebdo writer Caroline Fourest

“I’m very sad, very sad that journalists in UK do not support us, that journalists in UK betray what journalism is about by thinking that people cannot be grown enough to decide if a drawing is offending or not,” she said to the hosts of SkyNews Tonight via satellite. “Because you are not even showing it.” Read the rest of this entry »

[VIDEO] CNN: ‘Icy Reception’ for Obama During West Point Visit

For MediaiteNoah Rothman reports:

Obama’s “philosophical” speech to the 2014 graduates West Point about a new direction for America’s foreign policy was “not a great” U.S. Army cadets bow their heads in prayer during the invocation before U.S. President Barack Obama's  address at West Pointspeech for that audience, said CNN anchor Jim Clancy on Wednesday.

“It was a philosophical speech. It was not a commander-in-chief speaking to his troops. And you saw the reception. I mean, it was pretty icy.”

Clancy did not criticize the substance of President Obama’s speech outlining a shift in tactics, specifically as it relates to America’s approach to fighting terrorist groups.

Reid: Koch Brothers One of the Main Causes of Climate Change

“I know it sounds absurd, but it’s true.”

Senator Harry Reid has found something else to blame on the Koch brothers: climate change. Taking to the Senate floor, the majority leader called the philanthropic businessmen “one of the main causes” of the phenomenon.

“While the Koch brothers admit to not being experts on the matter, these billionaire oil tycoons are certainly experts at contributing to climate change — that’s what they do very well. They are one of the main causes of this — not a cause, one of the main causes.”

Reid went on to claim the brothers were the “biggest air and water polluters period” and were “waging a war against anything that protects the environment.” “I know it sounds absurd, but it’s true,” he said…(read more)

[VIDEO] Attkisson: Obama Administration’s “Chilling effect” on Journalism

ATTKISSON: I didn’t run into that same kind of sentiment [at CBS] as I did in the Obama administration when I covered the Bush administration very aggressively, on its secrecy and lack of Freedom of Information responses, and its poor management of the Food and Drug Administration and the national laboratories, the Halliburton-Iraq questions of fraud. I mean, there was one thing after another. The bait-and-switch of TARP, the bank bailout program. All of those stories under Bush were met with a good reception. There were different managers as well, but no one accused me of being a mouthpiece for the liberals at that time.

Attkisson told Kurtz that the White House would pressure her to change or drop her reporting, and when that didn’t work, they worked her bosses instead. Kurtz asked how this differed from the “working the refs” actions that go on all the time in Washington, and Attkisson says that it went too far.

“It’s just a lot of obfuscation, accusations, saying things are ‘phony scandals,’ ‘bogus,’ ‘not real,’ giving misinformation and false information. I mean, that’s provably true in some cases.”

Mediaite‘s transcript captures Attkisson’s complaint about broadcast journalism in the age of Obama:

ATTKISSON:Now there’ve always been tensions, there have always been calls from the White House under any administration I assume, when they don’t like a particular story. But it is particularly aggressive under the Obama administration and I think it’s a campaign that’s very well organized, that’s designed to have sort of a chilling effect and to some degree has been somewhat successful in getting broadcast producers who don’t really want to deal with the headache of it — why put on these controversial stories that we’re going to have to fight people on, when we can fill the broadcast with other perfectly decent stories that don’t ruffle the same feathers?

[VIDEO] George Will: ‘When a Politician Says the Climate Debate Is Over, He’s Losing It’

Noah Rothman  reports:  Conservative columnist George Will appeared on Fox News Sunday where he was asked to respond to President Barack Obama’s attribution of most severe weather to the effects of climate change…

“When a politician, on a subject implicating science,” he continued, “says, ‘the debate is over,’ you may be sure of two things; the debate is raging and he’s losing it.”

Will insisted that the repeated refrain from climate change activists, that the “debate is over” surrounding anthropogenic global warming, is an admission that the debate is not only ongoing but that those activists are losing…

From Mediaite via The CornerNational Review Online: Former secretary of defense Robert Gates spoke on the Today Show Monday morning, saying that while he was “not really surprised” by the reaction to his memoir, he was upset with the politicization of it.

“In a way I was disappointed that the book has been hijacked by people along the political spectrum to serve their own purposes, taking quotes out of context,” Gates said. “It’s part of the political warfare in Washington that I decry in the book.”

[VIDEO] A Special Bond: Rodman: Kim Jong Un ‘My F***ing Friend, I Love Him’

From Mediaite, via NRO‘s Andrew Johnson,  a disturbingly frank Dennis Rodman reveals his true feelings.

Andrew Johnson writes:  Dennis Rodman continued to emphasize his bizarre affection for North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, even when pressed about the dictator’s atrocities. While in Beijing with seven other former NBA players en route to Pyongyang to take part in an exhibition game for Kim’s birthday, Sky News confronted the Worm about why his “friend for life” has locked up 200,000 people in North Korean prison camps.

Rodman asserted that it wasn’t his “job” to address those concerns with Kim, but hoped that his involvement arranging the game could “open the doors” to negotiations for those in a better position to handle it. He said bringing the subject of prison camps up would infringe on the nature of their friendship.

Cuckoo Bananas: Chris Matthews Compares Conservatives to Kim Jong Un

Andrew Johnson writes:  Chris Matthews accused the conservative and tea-party factions that have been outspoken in their opposition of the Ryan-Murray budget deal of “acting if not as brutally, certainly as crazily” as North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, who recently executed his uncle.

“It’s not North Korea, but, boy, is it getting tough over there on the American right,” Matthews said.

The MSNBC host accused conservative groups of intimidating Republican senators who might otherwise support the deal into voting against it and likened their actions to those of the North Korean dictator, who “just fingered his own, unsuspecting guardian uncle over in Pyongyang.”

Expert Warns Congress: Obama’s Unrestrained Legal Behavior ‘Could Lead to Overthrow of Government’

CannonNoah Rothman reports:  During a congressional committee hearing about the constitutional limits imposed on the presidency and the implications of President Barack Obama’s disregard for implementing the Affordable Care Act as written, one expert testified that the consequences of the president’s behavior were potentially grave. He said that the precedent set by Obama could eventually lead to an armed revolt against the federal government.

 “If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.”

On Tuesday, Michael Cannon, Cato Institute’s Director of Health Policy Studies, testified before a congressional committee about the dangers of the president’s legal behavior.

“There is one last thing to which the people can resort if the government does not respect the restrains that the constitution places on the government,” Cannon said. “Abraham Lincoln talked about our right to alter our government or our revolutionary right to overthrow it.”

“That is certainly something that no one wants to contemplate,” he continued. “If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.” Read the rest of this entry »


CNN’s Carol Costello: Obama’s People ‘Nasty,’ Willing to ‘Threaten Your Job’

They don’t like you to say anything bad about their boss, and they’re not afraid to use whatever means they have at hand to stop you from doing that, including threatening your job.”

Noah Rothman reports:  New York Times columnist David Brooks said that the Republican Party is showing signs that it could be fractured by a “civil war” in the near future. The problem, he said, is that establishment and moderate GOP forces do not have the grassroots institutional network that the tea party has.

Angry old man yells at Paul Ryan for 90 minutes

(funniest epithet so far–jackhole)

I expected “table-pounding atmospherics” from Biden but I didn’t expect him to act like a total jackhole for fully 90 minutes. Give him credit for knowing his target audience, though: His task tonight was to get the left excited again after Obama fell into a semi-coma in Denver, and evincing utter disdain for Ryan — grimacing, shouting, laughing inappropriately, and constant, constant interruptions, the total jackhole experience — is just what the doctor ordered. He might have irritated independents and undecideds, but probably not so much that it’ll change people’s votes. The Democrats needed someone to go out there and clown for liberals, and if there’s one thing this guy knows, it’s clowning.

Here’s a taste of what I mean via Mediaite, centered around one of Ryan’s more cutting lines of the evening. For what it’s worth, the media lost patience with Biden’s shtick too, but I doubt that’ll cost him anything tomorrow.

And yes, Raddatz was also terrible. Exit quotation from Greg Gutfeld: “Biden is the drunk at the bar; Martha is the unhappy bartender, and Ryan is the unfortunate salesman caught in the middle…”
