I'd like to express exactly the feelings that were instilled in me on the Bill O’Reilly and Geraldo Rivera Youtube video post I made yesterday. If you'd like to share your opinion, and it differs from mine, it's quite okay!

Most of you already know my stand on illegal aliens. God knows I AM 100% against people, no matter what their skin color, entering this country illegally!

I have been suspecting it for the longest time, but now I can now see it as plainly as I can see the nose on my face.

His eyes can no long hide what an evil and hateful man he is. Just take a good look at his eyes and tell me if I'm wrong! I have no doubt in my mind anymore that Bill O'Reilly is a racist. I have come to realize that this man makes it a point to sensationalize crimes committed by minorities. As of late, he's has it in for MEXICANS. He ALWAYS makes it a point to publicize and magnify a MILLION times over, any wrong doing a Mexican does in this country, all the while infusing more and more hatred into those damn trigger happy Minutemen to eventually start shooting and killing Mexicans crossing our borders!

Of course, I'm against anyone driving while intoxicated, and feel they should ALL be punished severely, but to hear this odious man talk, you'd think Mexican's were the ONLY people in this country who have driven while intoxicated and killed someone.

If this man had been illegally in this country from any other country besides Mexico, O'Reilly wouldn't have made a squeak.

I just found this link regarding the alcohol related fatalities in the Commonwealth of Virginia:

"since 1999, the number of alcohol-related fatalities has risen across the nation and in Virginia, in 2002, reaching 17,419 nationally and 371 locally."

Why hasn't Bill O'Reilly splattered on Fox News ALL the pictures of ALL those 371 people who have killed someone while driving under the influence of alcohol?! Why ONLY this ONE illegal Mexican? I'll tell you why, because he hates Mexican's and all minorities!!

Bill O'Reilly is also adamant about keeping our soldiers in Iraq. I do believe he has a nephew over there. I don't believe he's ever served in the Armed Forces, nor does he have a son or daughter over there. Although he proclaims himself to be a devout Catholic, I'm not even sure if the man is even married. If he is, will someone please let me know, because I'd like to bring out something else about this man in a later post?

I despise this man, and to think my friend Norma and I once had a terrible crush on him! I've recently tried watching cartoons, but have failed miserably, because I continue to be addicted to Fox News, and the ranting and ravings of this out of control man!

I've never cared for Geraldo Rivera, but in this case, I'd like to give him a big hug, because for ONCE, he stood up for what he believed, and wasn't a wet noodle "Yes, I agree" man with Bill-O!

For those who didn't see the video in my prior post, here it is AGAIN:

meh, don't let yourself get worked up in a lather...both of these idiots are staging these for ratings. Heck, you couldn't deport Geraldo if you wanted to, he's a Puerto Rican.

The real issue here is whitey's fears of a loss of dominance. Millions of Canadians come in and out of your country with no consequences. In fact, millions of them work in the US, but live in canada- paying canadian taxes. At least the mexicans pay into the Social Security system (those fake numbers are paying for someone elses retirement). Let them in, America should form up into a union similar to the EU with the other latin american countries. Then they'll have to bring in a minimum wage, unions and all those anti-trust laws we take advantage of here in the states.

I've seen this story before, just switch the mexicans for Irish or Italians or Chinese and it's the 1890's again.

Enough Xenophobia, your concept of countries doesn't apply to the real world anymore. If the government wanted to stop it, they would. But the corporations that own your country need the source of cheap labor so they can buy another gold plated helicopter for their spoiled whore daughters. These xenophobic debates are just another divide and conquer ploy by your owners. As long as they've got you afraid of furreners you'll never realize you should be going after 5% who own everything.

Not sure I agree, YET!
I have watched part of his show for some time and I am not sure if you are right or not. People seem to either hate him or love him. I guess that is what he wants.

In the future I will watch from your point of view and see if what you say is true.

As for now I still have an open mind as to Wild Bill.

This is a little off subject but ..........................

Back during WWII when the USA felt quite threatened by Germany, Italy, and Japan, it was quite understandable that most Americans were "extreme" in their attitudes towards these three countries. Things were very black and white, we hated out enemies and loved our allies.

Then, through the years (and there were more than 50 of them), thanks to TV and other faster means of communication, we have seen the countries of the world and learned about the variety of problems they have. We have seen so much more of the haves and havenots of this world. We have all become much more interdependent in economical and other ways.

The old black and white attitudes don't really make much sense. Very seldom is any issue one of black or white, yes or no, etc. There are so many sides to things that it is difficult to even know what is the best solution, the right way to proceed.

It is often anxiety-producing to try to understand and have an opinion of what to support and what to reject. I think there are still some holdovers from the old WWII attitude of attacking and killing our enemies and then we will be OK.

Every so often I hear someone say we should attack Iraq (we did), and Iran, and North Korea before they come over here and get us. This sounds like the simplistic black and white view, but it doesn't go with the reality of our world today. It is naive to go around attacking anyone you think might threaten you.

To tie this idea to illegal aliens or allowing anyone into this country legally or illegally.......... it is much too simplistic to think we can just ban anyone who scares us. And it is naive to think that we can live with Canada and Mexico on our borders without coming up with something the equivalent of what goes on in Europe where people freely go from country to country.

I don't see Bill O'Reilly making any realistic contribution to dealing with things like Iraq and illegals. There are too many blowhards in the media who thrive on stirring things up just to get ratings and make money.

And, by the way, we have a president and vice-president who are still oriented to the old time black and white attitude. They seem unable to cope with the world of today.

I think they're both basically right. Illegal immigrants have no right to be here but Mr. O'Reilly is manipulating a tragedy that stems from an entirely different issue to galvanize support for his views on illegal immigration. I don't think he's "evil" so much as opportunistic.
Apr. 7th, 2007 10:43 pm (UTC)
He does it for attention, how else can he get you irate?

By the way guns suck :P
Apr. 27th, 2007 02:13 pm (UTC)
I don't think so. He's just a true asshole!

Guns suck?
Guns rock! :o)

I never thought I'd find myself agreeing with a position Geraldo Rivera's taking.
Apr. 27th, 2007 02:15 pm (UTC)
I never did either. I believe the man has finally seen the light!

I didn't watch the video, but I saw the excerpts on Fox News.

It was, as I expected, a shout-fest. I suspect the content has more to do with ratings than anything else. I don't know enough about O'Reilly (except for his hypocrisy on "moral" issues) to say whether he is a racist or not. I would note that because of our immigration policies and the fact that we only border Canada and Mexico it is a fact of geography that the vast majority of illegal aliens will be Mexican.

In any event, it is things like this shout-fest that make me turn the channel when he comes on.
Apr. 8th, 2007 12:28 am (UTC)
now you see what i'm talking about.
i agree with you about o'reilly. i thought the same thing when i watched that video. whether this was for ratings or not (and with fox news, i wouldn't doubt it) the fact is his true colors came out and you could see the venom in his eyes. that also confirms what i suspected was his motive for campaigning against ludacris.

geraldo easily stumped him in the debate in the first two sentences and so o'reilly resorts to screaming and shouting and geraldo stood his ground.

had that illegal alien been of the caucasian persuasion, there would have been no news story whatsoever.

as i've stated before this country was founded on immigration and as far as i'm concerned the only people who have the right to bitch about illegal aliens coming over and destroying this country are the american indians.

the vast majority of aliens who come to this country come from impoverished lands and are desperate for a better way of life and because of their brown skin and assholes like o'reilly many of them have to break the law for a better life. is that the way things should be? of course not but i guarantee you that most people would do the exact same thing if they were in their position.

in addition to the overwhelming majority of aliens being hardworking honest people and personifying the american dream, this country has reaped from having them here.

and this is coming from a person who is going through the proper channels to immigrate to another country.

as another reader pointed out if this government really wanted to stamp out illegal immigration, it would've done so ages ago. but it hasn't because the corporations (which by and large run our government) have profited off of the cheap labor. as another commenter pointed out it's ultimately xenophobia and the 1890s all over again.

if people are serious about stopping illegal immigration in this country, they should work with mexico to spark their economy (we owe them that much from the nafta fallout and it both sides prosper) so they won't be so desperate to cross the borders over here for better jobs and a better life.

but in regards to o'reilly: i don't know if he's married but i do recall that sexual harassment scandal that took place a while back.

between geraldo, george clooney, ludacris and phil donahue, that's like what: four ass kickings he's gotten.

Re: now you see what i'm talking about.
Ya know, I watched the first part and listened to Geraldo's first two sentences over and over again, and yet I don't see where he says "what if he wasn't Mexican", I see him say "what if he had an American name". I never met an English man with a name of Bubba, Buddy, or Bobby. Nor a Frenchman. Nor a German. Nor European at all (though I know one guy whose family comes from Serbia and came here via Canada, and was born here, named Bobby).

It seems Geraldo is saying "If he was like the other 300 drunk driving murders and he was American, we wouldn't be talking about it" not "what if he was white".

Dealing with the issue of illegal aliens is not a racist thing. Geraldo didn't even attempt to make it such.

Bill O'Reilly is also adamant about keeping our soldiers in Iraq. I do believe he has a nephew over there. I don't believe he's ever served in the Armed Forces, nor does he have a son or daughter over there.
The above strikes me as a scary form of criticism. It seems to advocate the idea that only those with military experience, or those with something more personal to loose, are qualified to support or oppose the war in Iraq.

It's used a whole lot these days, and in my opinion seems to fly in the face of the ideals behind our Constitutional Republic.

Actually I agree with Bill. His point is NOT that a mexican illegal alien killed someone driving drunk. His point is that a illegal alien that was arrested 4 times killed someone while driving drunk, just happens the man is from Maxico. His point was when he was arrested the FIRST time he should have been deported. Had he been, then maybe the people killed would still be alive. Therefore I agree with him. I'm all for deporting ANYONE from ANY COUNTRY that is here illegally.
Apr. 27th, 2007 02:19 pm (UTC)
Bill-O is a racist, plain and simple.

His face is the epitome of hatred when he brings out Latinos! It's as plain as the nose on my face.
Apr. 8th, 2007 08:36 pm (UTC)
I put this in my journal, crediting you
Apr. 9th, 2007 05:13 am (UTC)
I dunno
I recommend tracking down a copy of O'Reilly when he was on the Colbert Report. While adamant about his positions, Bill did not scream, shout, or gesticulate wildly in anyway. He was pretty quiet, actually, and even laughed (once I think).

The Factor is all about entertainment, and I'm pretty sure O'Reilly's on screen persona is not the "real" Bill. He's even gone so far as to say he's "not nice" on the show. It's possible he just lets himself get swept away in the act, especially since that's apparently what makes him the no. 1 "news" show. Even in controversy he gets attention (we're all talking about him, right?).

Not that the act excuses any deplorable behavior, but ultimately it's hard to size a man up 100% w/o ever actually meeting him in person.
