O'REILLY THREATENS DISSENTERS
'You Will be Considered Enemies of the State'
'You Will be Spotlighted'
Joins Cheney Campaign of 'Anti-Patriotism' Intimidation
Bill O'Reilly - 02/26:
"Once the war against Saddam Hussein begins,
we expect every American to support our military,
and if you can't do that, just shut up.
Americans, and indeed our foreign allies who actively work against
our military once the war is underway,
will be considered enemies of the state by me.
Just fair warning to you, Barbra Streisand and
others who see the world as you do.
I don't want to demonize anyone, but anyone
who hurts this country in a time like this, well.
Let's just say you will be spotlighted.
Talking points invites all points of view and believes vigorous
debate strengthens the country, but once decisions have been
made and lives are on the line, patriotism must be factored in."
-- Bill O'Reilly
Finally, the bait and switch. O'Reilly tells you that you must not only support American
troops but support the Iraq policies of "the government" - Which means, of course, the policies,
methods, and timetable of the unelected fraud who occupies the White House as a result
of successfully fighting to crush democracy in America:
"This does not give the government carte blanche to do anything,
but it does give the government the benefit of the doubt at least until that
benefit is proven wrong as it was in Vietnam."
No it doesn't, you unAmerican loudmouth.
And how, pray tell, can government policy be "proven wrong" when Americans
have been denied their freedom of speech? O'Reilly doesn't tell his freshly frothed fans.
He doesn't have to - they're Moron-American sheep who won't ask.
But those patriots who believe the longer troops remain in Iraq the greater the risk to
them and to American civilians as a result of an energized al Qaeda, winning new,
insane, willing, suicidal recruits by the day are not only free to assert political pressure
on the American government but morally obligated to speak out against that government policy.
No one is obligated to support policy that they believe risks the lives of
American servicemen and ensures additional mass murders of thousands more
American civilians at the hands of terrorists.
This is only the beginning. You'll be seeing a lot more of O'Reilly's brand of
intimidation from many, many other media whores (as well as Tom DeLay
and Ari Fleischer, who not so subtly smeared CBS and Dan Rather today
as pro-Saddam peddlers of pro-Iraq propaganda).
The phrase "Enemy of the State" is not usually used by Americans, now is it?
But, it certainly has a familiar ring to it. Where have we heard it before??
The Kulaks Are the Enemy of the State

The Indian shopkeepers are the Enemy of the State
