Neiwert comments: “This paragraph seems like an almost crystalline amalgam of the kind of eliminatist rhetoric that is spewed every day over the nation's media by the likes of O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Savage, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, and their swarms of ignoble imitators -- including Bernie Goldberg….  These guys are big battleships, dontcha know.  Why be bothered with such little spitballs as basic decency and integrity?”

Bonnie Erbe of US News & World Report wrote: “Quite frankly I'd have a better time parking on a freeway in rush hour and dealing with all the angry motorists, than watching Venom Boy spew. Can't somebody recommend to O'Reilly a competent psychotherapist?”

More than that, these venom boys need to be defanged.  Progressive, alternative media needs to fight back – not with hatred, but by exposing the links between their hate speech and crimes inspired by it, and by exposing their lies, distractions and growing irrelevance in a world that finds its news in more reliable outlets.
