  1. They all should have walked off the set.

  2. I would have walked out on "Listen... YOU'LL LEARN SOMETHING."

  3. Good they walked out. Now I wish O'Reilly's viewers would do the same, but they won't.

  4. It's sad that something as positive and uplifting as the Chilean miners rescue has about a 48 hour lifespan, but blowhards like Bill O'Reilly are still talking about that silly mosque 2 months later.

    BTW, did ya'll hear that one of the miner's mistresses showed up? HILARIOUS!

  5. i would have challenged him to prove that 70 percent of Americans disagree. where the heck does he get off just simply making up statistics ? there is being provocative, and then there is being liar. He also has an incredibly annoying habit of talking loudly over everyone and not letting anyone speak. A total old irritant.

  6. Bill o'reilly is a racist against muslims, he has shown that today publically for all to see.. he is an embarrassment to republicans.
    An ignorant man that should not be giving a second thought let alone air time.

    Bill O'Reilly is a waste of skin.

  7. Good point Whoopi, what religion was Timothy McVeigh? Christian, Catholic? Should we not allow any more of those churches to be built anywhere?

  8. A publicity stunt for all sides. These situations are so pointless. O'Reilly's supporters love him for talking back to the View ladies and the View fans love Whoopi and Joy for walking off the set. No minds are changed.

  9. And then he will say something positive about marriage equality and the queens will trip over themselves making excuses for him. Just like Glen Beck, Richard Cohen, etc etc etc.

  10. What an ignorant shouter.......anttime someone disagrees he shounts them down. STFU already.

  11. Walking off the set is ridiculous and unprofessional, even if it's justifiable. The producers invited O'Reilly onto the show... they knew what they were getting when they did that. Walters, as the only journalist, should have been asking hard-hitting follow-up questions demanding proof of the crazy statements. These chances to show how crazy the talking heads are shouldn't be wasted like this.

  12. The chicks on the View (except one) are liberal idiots! Socialist wanna be's...I am not a FAN of Bill's but I do agree with him. Those that walked out had a childish tantrum - ridiculous!

  13. The reason so many are opposed to the community center' is that the right wing talking heads, politicians and idiots like O'Reilly have wrongly been calling it a mosque. This is racism at it's worse and if any other minorities do not get it yet, if they hate muslims, chances are they also hate jews, blacks, gays and anyone else who is not a white christian.

  14. I find it funny that the gay rights and other liberal groups are defending radical Islam when they know damn well what happens to gays in the Muslim world. Oh by the way, leftist goons, Islam is not a race.

  15. Tons of people in the audience clapped when O'Reily said,"70 % of Americans don't want that mosque down there..."

    Who is in that audience? Scary.

  16. I see we have a ditto head in here.

  17. And why is the death of thousands still being used in what is transparently a broader culture war over conservatism versus progress? Everyone just needs to come clean and stop hiding behind the victims' corpses.

    Conservatives want America to remain/become/go back to (depending on your perspective) a country run by rich white Christian men who publicly identify as straight; progressives want to create a balance of power between all groups, which is largely infeasible in our present post-capitalist system.

    And hence why we voted for change. And hence why we are all discontent when it inches forward.

  18. Barbara Walters is a Right Winger - used to sleep with Henry Kissinger.

    She is
    1) An Elitist

    2) Has no problem with Republicanism

    3) The View is a front by design to bring right wing views to women.... the producer is a highly connected Republican operative, Walters knew this going in.

  19. @THE MILKMAN You are 100% correct!

    @DENISE WEBER I'm sorry, honey. You're still an asswipe.

  20. AT THE RISK OF OFFENDING SOME OF THE GAYS HERE, I HAVE TO SAY THAT I AGREE WITH O'REILLY. AND I AM NOT A FAN OF HIS BY ANY MEANS.

    WHOOPI AND BEHAR SHOULD HAVE SHOWN SOME CLASS AND LET THE MAN SPEAK AND THEN OFFER THEIR COUNTERVIEWS.

    THEIR BEHAVIOR REMINDED ME OF THE JERRY SPRINGER SHOW. YES, I'LL ADMIT TO WATCHING IT A FEW TIMES. I'M AFRAID THEY BEHAVED LIKE SPOILED AND PETULANT BRATS. WALTERS, LIZ, AND SHERRI DISPLAYED MORE DIGNITY UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES.

    I SUPPOSE IT'S ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THEY START THROWING CHAIRS AT EACH OTHER A LA JERRY SPRINGER.

    BUT THAT SEEMS TO BE THE NORM WITH THE VIEW -- JUST FOUR WOMEN YELLING OVER EACH OTHER EVERY TIME THEY DISAGREE.

    I HAD TO STOP WATCHING THE SHOW SOME TIME BACK FOR THIS REASON AND ALSO BECAUSE IT BECAME LESS AND LESS RELEVANT TO THE CULTURE WHATEVER THAT IS NOW. MAYBE THIS IS THE CULTURE. GOD HELP US ALL.

    I GO BACK QUITE A WAYS AND REMEMBER A TIME ON TV WHEN PEOPLE RESPECTED ONE ANOTHER, HAD CLASS, LET EACH OTHER HAVE THEIR SAY AND NOT BEHAVE LIKE PRO WRESTLERS AT A GRUDGE MATCH.

    THANKS TO ANDY FOR PROVIDING THE AMUSING CLIP.

  21. He was booked to spread this HATE and LIE.

    They were TERRORIST that killed people on 9/11. As President W said we were at war with TERRORIST not MUSLIMS you fool.

    We are sliding toward Christianist Fascism in this country --- and Denise likes that.

    Any person who did not get up and walk out is guilty of spreading anti-Islam hate. (Which the corporations want so their puppet candidates will be voted into power) Barbara and the other two are evil for sitting there.

  22. I think you need a new keyboard. Your caps lock appears to be stuck.

  23. I am glad Whoopi and Joy walked off so that the screaming would stop and a decent conversation could take place. I did not see Barbara walk off! Bill was right. 70% do not want that inappropriate mosque no matter how many Muslims consequently died that day as well.

  24. LOL @ Crispy!

    Posted by: ronnykmarshall | Oct 14, 2010 1:19:53 PM


  25. We are sliding toward Christianist Fascism in this country...and I for one, and gonna my dam-dest to get the Hell out of this country....America is devolving at a alarming rate....hate seems to rule the day.
