Lately the administration has been feeling the heat from both isles to set a timetable for an exit of Iraq. The President's poll numbers are down, and Republicans are defecting from the party. Now the neo-cons are getting desperate. Recently, Karl Rove said, in so many words, that conservatives are the only ones that had the balls to go to war against the terrorists and protect America, and that the liberals are basically a bunch of pussies that are putting our troops in danger by calling to bring them home.
He said, "Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers ... Has there ever been a more revealing moment this year? Let me just put this in fairly simple terms: Al Jazeera now broadcasts the words of Senator Durbin to the Mideast, certainly putting our troops in greater danger. No more needs to be said about the motives of liberals.”
Bill O’Reilly ratings are plunging with the President's poll numbers, and he is freaking out, because contrary to his prediction, Liberal radio is exploding across the country. O'Reilly, who is without shame, said that FBI should arrest his growing competition, the “clowns” at Air America Radio for being traitors!
Responding to controversial comments by Sen. Richard J. Durbin (D-IL) regarding the treatment of detainees at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, O’Reilly said that Americans “must know the difference between dissent from the Iraq war and the war on terror and undermining it,” and that “any American who undermines that war ... is a traitor.” He then hurled this accusation at Air America Radio: “So, all those clowns at the liberal radio network, we could incarcerate them immediately. Will you have that done, please? Send over the FBI and just put them in chains, because they, you know, they’re undermining everything and they don’t care.”
From the June 20 broadcast of Westwood One’s The Radio Factor with Bill O’Reilly:
O’REILLY: And when he [Durbin] went out there, his intent was to whip up the American public against the Bush detainee policy. That’s what his intent was. His intent wasn’t to undermine the war effort, because he never even thought about it. He never even thought about it. But by not thinking about it, he made an egregious mistake because you must know the difference between dissent from the Iraq war and the war on terror and undermining it. And any American that undermines that war, with our soldiers in the field, or undermines the war on terror, with 3,000 dead on 9-11, is a traitor. Everybody got it? Dissent, fine; undermining, you’re a traitor. Got it? So, all those clowns over at the liberal radio network, we could incarcerate them immediately. Will you have that done, please? Send over the FBI and just put them in chains, because they, you know, they’re undermining everything and they don’t care, couldn’t care less.
