The term "dinosaur" is derived from the Greek words deinossaura meaning "lizard" or "reptile". Which brings us to the O'Reillysaurus, more commonly known as Bill O'Reilly or BillO, a genus of the Ailes species which includes the Limbaughanus, the Hannitycolmes (indigenous attemptatbalance) and the extinct comedy of Dennis Miller (usedtobefunnysaurus). Once considered to be a member of the journalist family, the O'Reillysaurus's inclusion under the journalist designation was found to be a fake 2002 Wikipedia addition made by the O'Reillysaurus itself, bitter over not ever being made a member of the fourth estate's big boy club. meaning "terrible" and
Evolved from the reptilian mccarthy-goebbels sub-order, the O'Reillysaurus exists in a primeval ooze where its small brain, in contrast to its massive, fat head and even larger ego, is fraught with an all-consuming paranoia that finds a fast-approaching imaginary asteroid, intent on casting an lethal Ice Age over Fox News, Christianity and Factor Gear, hiding behind every secular-progressive tar-pit. Though its sex life is sketchy, the O'Reillysaurus's stalking of the Andreamakris Producersaurs indicates a preference for smaller, weaker conquests.
When there is no asteroid to fear, the O'Reillysaurus has an instinctive ability to make one up...as in its syndicated column this week, where it rolled out its usual condemnation of the Left with no concern of who or what it stomped on to destroy its prey.
"So now the far-left loons in the media are saying there really isn't an organized terror threat in the world and that this whole war on terror deal is a hype job. That must come as great comfort to the thousands of families who lost loved ones on 9/11."
And in going Rudy Giulialini all over us the O'Reillysaurus attacked the usual suspects.
"The nutty professor Paul Krugman, who teaches at Princeton and writes op-ed lunacy for the New York Times, is also on the diminish terror bandwagon. This is from his desk: "There isn't any such thing as Islamofascism-it's not an ideology; it's a figment of the neocon imagination. That's like saying there is no such thing as stupidity... right, professor?"
Of course there's stupidity, BillO. How else would you explain newspapers choosing to waste a single column inch on your weekly fraudulent attacks without first issuing a disclaimer? The column continues...
"Maybe we should ask the families of the 40 dead and 300 injured in the London subway bombings, or the friends of the 202 dead in the Bali, Indonesia attack on a Kuta beach nightclub to comment on Krugman's opinion. I believe they might have some reaction."
Hey, Bill. Maybe we should ask the family and friends of the billions of dinosaurs - who, except for your kind, no longer slog across the earth - and see if they care that you chose to leave out a sentence from the same Krugman column that would have made your entire argument and ambush null and void.
"Just to be clear, Al Qaeda is a real threat, and so is the Iranian nuclear program," wrote Krugman.
Krugman never says there's no threat of terrorism, he just doesn't buy into the White House's calculated use of the word Islamofascism which - just like the O'Reillysaurus cut and pasted in his attempt to create a Krugman-boogeyman out of hole-cloth - was created as a simplistic fraud to frighten people on to the Bush war-making wagon.
Perhaps, BillO, we should ask all the dead and injured you callously exploit how they feel about being manipulated for your own selfish fear-mongering, fabricated propaganda.
The O'Reillysaurus has always had an innate ability to select a minuscule portion of information or a parsed segment of an opponent's argument and blow it up into some sort of ideological principle to debase, sell its fictional fear-based controversies, and hawk its do-as-I-say-and-not-who-I-sexually-harass books: i.e. San Franciscans dressed as nuns to bring down Christianity; War on Christmases attempting to put the X back in Christmas; MSNBC emboldening the terrorists who want to re-crucify Christ.
Just as it recently deprecated Ron Paul telling him he had "no time for a history lesson," the O'Reillysaurus has no inclination to supply the Folks ™ with all the information necessary to make a cognizant decision on their own. After all, why would they need O'Reillysaurus if they had that?
The O'Reillysaurus's clumsy deception is confirmed by the fact that he never links his references so that the Folks ™ can see a reference in full context. Of course that would make the O'Reillysaurus mix and match accusations much weaker, if existent at all.
But back to this week's column where the O'Reillysaurus saves its most patently offensive fabrication for last.
