The president of San Francisco Pride, Mikayla Connell, appeared on The O'Reilly Factor to present the bombastic host with a "Pink Brick Award" to acknowledge his fomenting of anti-LGBT hysteria by airing inaccuracy-laced reports and outright lies on his program.

One of the more infamous anti-gay shows cited was a ridiculous piece, "Violent Lesbian Gangs a Growing Problem", a report by Faux News "Crime Analyst" Rod Wheeler, who came on O'Reilly to spin a fable about a national network of pink pistol-toting lesbians preying on teen girls and attacking men. (PageOneQ):

"You associate homosexuality more with a social movement, not a criminal movement," O'Reilly said. "But you're saying that this is all over the country, Detective?"

"It's all over the country--and it's mainly in your larger cities," Wheeler said. "You go from New York to California to wherever you want to name, you can see these organizations. Now, the other thing, too, that our viewers are going to find very interesting is the fact that they actually carry--some of these groups--carry pink pistols. They call themselves the pack--the 'Pink Pistol Packing Group'--and these are lesbians that actually carry pink pistols. That's 9mm Glocks. They use these, they commit crimes, and they cause a lot of hurt to a lot of people.

O'Reilly, in true prevaricating fashion, tried to say to Connell that this aired "five or six years ago" as opposed to last June, and laid the blame for the inaccurate, hysterical lies completely at Wheeler's door.

O'Reilly tried to defuse Connell's criticism by stating San Francisco Pride's in a snit over his "reporting" about "transvestite nuns."

Two members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, in October of 2007, received Holy Communion from an unwitting Archbishop George Niederauer. O'Reilly used the opportunity to decry so-called "San Francisco values" in a city run by "far-left secular progressives who despise the military, traditional values and religion."

Am I wrong in thinking that groups of lesbian gangs roving around with pink pistols and whipping the asses of those who need it would be freaking awesome? Sorta like a gay "Young Guns."

They could start with O'Reilly.

If only the gangs of pink pistol toting lesbians was true.... Perhaps they could target O'Reilly as one of their first victims???

The thing that amaze me was that he classified his quests comments as 'opinions' and not his doing, and yet he is the one that allows people to air their opinions, but only if they happen to be the same as his own..... Can we spell h-y-p-o-c-r-i-t-e? Really though we have to look at his employers as the biggest hypocrites of all, I mean lets start with their tag line of "Fair and balanced". Oh really???

Sounds like fodder for a lesbian transgender superhero with powers beyond those of mortal men.

Did they hit him with the brick? That would have been much more apropos...

As much as I dislike O'Reilly I have to say, he made Connell look quite bad. He was extremely gracious, and he effectively answered every point that was raised. I cannot say whether or not his counter remarks are accurate or not, but they were effective. Connell was badly outclassed on this one. O'Reilly had already defused the situation.

And as to the Sisters, that is an issue that divides the community. As a devout Anglo-Catholic, I was offended by their behavior. They certainly have a right to do as they please, but I find much of their antics highly offensive. The archbishop did what was right, but they should not have presented themselves for communion. They violated the rules of the Roman Catholic church.

That's the problem, as I see it. He's really good at that - he lies on the spot, he's polite sometimes, and he gives the impression that he's speaking with authority even when he's not.

He's the triumph of style over substance.

O'Reilly is a walking talking reason for the return of the fairness doctrine in broadcasting, and the evisceration of the Faux News Network. I refuse to watch anything broadcast on Faux News. If I ever met O'Reilly in person, I'd punch his lights out.

However, I don't have much nice to think of the Sisters, either. I understand that they do good works, but I'm sick and tired of having to deal with local handbills posted against candidates we support that have the outrageous images portrayed by the Sisters of Indulgence splashed across them. It may be fun for them in SF, but it causes hell for us in Kentucky. It happened again recently.
