"...With Liberty and Justice for ALL" (unless you're gay, of course)

This has been stewing within me for the last couple of days...

All right, O'Reilly, at the 0.15 mark you state that "if you oppose gay marriage some far-left people will try to hurt you." Hurt you, Bill? Did I hear that correctly? Because although the gays may go tit-for-tat with you, it is only to defend our names and families from people like you who incite bigotry and hate against our community. How many bashings need to happen? How many stories do you need to hear before you realize that the platform you take and the words you speak fuel anti-gay zealots to feel absolutely vindicated in the actions and prejudices they take against the gay community? When was the last time you heard of a group of gay people beating or killing a straight person for the mere fact that they were heterosexual? The thing is, Bill, I think you know exactly what you doing and you get a kick out of keeping gays as second-class citizens and targets for abuse.

The pledge of allegiance, the quotes which you so desperately cling to, state "with liberty and justice for ALL," and then at the 3:45 mark you so proudly claim that the bogus accusations you have against the gay community are "not the American way" and "un-American." You love considering us "Un-American" and unpatriotic because of our "non traditional marriage," but my question to you is, who are the real patriots of this country - those of us trying to uphold the idea of "liberty and justice for all" or those of you who are trying to deny it?

I would have a lot more respect for you, Bill O'Reilly, if you just put all the bullshit aside and stated simply that you hate gay people and want to keep them as a segregated community apart from the rest of the world. You have enough balls to incite the murder of a pro-abortion doctor - where are your old wrinkly, loathsome balls on this one?

Let freedom ring.

You're so right, Eric. I've said it before and I'll say it again,When your words motivate others to commit acts of violence, you are not simply exercising your right to free speech or practicing your faith. You are a Jihadist. That's exactly what Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and their kind have become.

By this logic, anybody who citicizes the morality of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan should be blamed for spree killings on American servicemen. Attacks on Israeli civilians are because of those who criticize their treatment of Palestinians. Anybody who criticizes the NYPD should be blamed for cops getting shot. Etc. Nobody is ever to blame in cases like the abortion doc except the shooter.
