    Typical, and pathetic.

    and yet, his response makes Gay Republicans go “See? he’s on our side! he says he RESPECTS that we want to be treated like everyone else. you intolerant extremist liberals ignore that it should be left to the states, so the states can decide if we should be treated like everybody else or not.”

    O’Reilly’s Game – pander to, and feed, the bigotry of America’s Stupids; then slyly put in some grain of nonsense at the end that pathetic apologists can pretend means “you’re a good guy.”

    Bill O’Reilly & Joe Scarborough are virtually the same person. They’re both loud-mouthed egomaniacs that try to present themselves as the populist voice of reason.
    They often soften their stances on a few social issues, but when push comes to shove, they’re both rightwing reactionaries.

  3. says

    Tokenist BS, populist BS.
    Since when did “Equality” become an issue for the States or even for a majority to decide ?

    “Equality” is a fundamental right; when did rights become subject to an electorate ?
    As for O’Reilly, he’s a complete dangerous demagogue fool.

  4. David in the O.C. says

    Slippery slope arguments are weak and lazy. If you simply state that 95% of the populous has the right to get married, and the other 5% don’t. THAT is how you explain marriage equality. Bill needs to explain (but obviously can’t) why the 95% get to decide the civil rights of the 5%… when the right for gay couples to marry does NOT have any effect on their lives.

  5. Chris says

    I don’t think y’all realize how lucky we are to have such an excellent authority on marriage. I mean, I for one appreciate being lectured by the very married and very Catholic O’Reilly, who settled a multimillion dollar sexual harassment suit by the coworker he wanted to use a falafel on in the shower.

    “Because if that were true, then pluralists would, then Mormons could have more than one.”

    Yes, because 1+1=2+1=10+1. He needs to go back to first grade.

  7. Mike Ryan says

    Bill O’Reilly is a hate monger. He should not be given a forum by CBS or any other public broadcasting company to spew his hate and discrimination over the airwaves. Complain to CBS and loudly.

  8. Will says

    He’s being intellectually dishonest and deliberately crafty. O’Reilly and others continue to cast the Prop 8 outcome as if it were just the personal opinion of one (in their view, biased) individual, instead of the result of a lengthy and well-argued (on our side, anyway) legal proceeding. As the federal judge in the case, Walker’s opinion is not equivalent to that of any person on the street. By definition of his role, his take take really does matter more.

    This is all of a piece with the Prop 8 proponents’ desperate, last-ditch attempts to challenge the scope of Judge Walker’s injunction. They, like O’Reilly, are happy to create an impression that there are some clouds or doubt on the horizon. The more they challenge the outcome, the more evident it is that their actions are driven by hate. They couldn’t care less about the chain of command between the governor and county registrars until doing so furthered their own discriminatory interests.

    O’Reilly’s an idiot, but what’s wrong w/ Charlie Rose?

    Why do interviewers never challenge even the simplest baloney, like say… VOTING ON PERSONAL RIGHTS IN A BALLOT BOX?!!!

    If the premise was wrong in the 1st place, what does it matter if tons of people think otherwise?

    My rights are not (should not be) subject to another individual’s ability to overcome their own prejudice.

    These people are exhausting.

  10. Tom Chicago says

    so it just dawned on O’Pinion what happened last week? I never watch him (except for the meltdowns that go viral) Has he been making these same quacking noises for the last week?

  11. Caliban says

    @TampaZeke, as I once said to a very moody acquaintance, “Could you send out another personality, Sybil? Because nobody like this one.”

    O’Reilly is, as usual, full of sh!t.

  12. Bubba says

    OK BIll, well I do not think straight people should be allowed to be married. Let’s all vote on if Bill should be allowed to be married, shall we?

  13. FuryOfFirestorm says

    That @$$hole gets outraged over everything

    “Bill O’Reilly outraged to find black olives missing from his deluxe veggie pizza!”

    “Bill O’Relly is outraged that his cable bill went up by $5!”

    “O’Reilly outraged by neighbor’s kids on his lawn, then yells at a cloud!”

  14. christopher says

    Listen Bill, you’re not on the Supreme Court, your just a bloviating news reader and your opinion, whilst at times fascinating is inconsequential, so please by all means spout off meaninglessly but don’t expect anyone to care and don’t be surprised when the world closes the door on you much like one would on a crazy next door neighbor.

  15. anon says

    He’s wrong on the facts. The Prop 8 decision was about standing in federal court cases. No right to gay marriage was determined.

    The DOMA case was a due process decision that stated that by enacting such legislation, Congress deprived LGB citizens of due process. It didn’t assert a right to gay marriage either.

    The Prop 8 case is really a question for the people of CA to decide based on their reaction to the failure of CA political leadership to enforce Prop 8. If they are upset, they should pass an amendment to the state constitution requiring the state to defend all of it’s laws in court. To have any teeth it would need a penalty of some sort, like forfeiture of office.

    Twice a year or so Billo the Clown will say something that sort of makes sense and everyone will say–“I’ve always thought he wasn’t so bad”.

    All those people need to take note–this is the real Bill O’Reilly. This is what he is. Any rare coherence is the anomaly.

  17. says

    O’Reilly is just one of the talking heads guarding the inhabitants of Bullsh*t Mountain from rejoining the world of the sane. Fox News is a propaganda machine which dumbs down America by the day through disinformation and their slanted agendas. See their anchors spewing forth feces from their mouths in my visual homage to the network on my artist’s blog at

    To raise a point, exactly what is wrong for a man to have more than one wife at a time? If he can support them, and the woman wish to have such a relationship, whose business is it? The Moron Church got along nicely for years with such a situation. Just ask Romney’s Grandfather. When the US made Utah change in order to gain Statehood, the Romney’s left for Mexico.
