*Everywhere: How Bill O'Reilly defines the battle when a teacher in Bismark, ND, purporting to push religion is thrown out and a teacher in Santa Ana, CA purporting to push atheism is not.
You can tell the War on Christmas has lost steam.
On today's Radio Factor, O'Reilly put out the warning. All over the country, Christian and conservative kids are being bullied by secular progressive teachers. And now Bill has the tape to prove it.
Dr. James Corbett, a high school history teacher in California, was caught on tape calling religion "irrational," accusing conservatives of wanting women to be "pregnant, barefoot, and in the kitchen," and calling Bill and Sean Hannity "liars." He even pronounced Roger Ailes name wrong and said that Ailes had advised President Bush. "Ailes should sue for slander," advised Bill. And he should know what it takes to make the case. Ask Al Franken.
The problem is nearly epidemic.
And that's what his book, "Kids Are Allowed To Be Paranoid Too," is all about.
We're not talking anecdotal examples, Folks. Just look at the numbers.
The US Board of Education reports that there are something over 76 million students attending public schools. Lets say this demonic "loon" in Mission Viejo, teaches six different classes of 40 students (afterall, we're talking public school) and ALL 240 students are conservative and Christian. That would mean that Bill had backed up his warning .000031%. That is pretty damn closde to an epidemic of Christian conservative kid abuse.
So when the liberal loons attempt to paint O'Reilly as a phoney alarmist with his warning of a pandemic of Christian conservative kiddy persecution, remember the .000031%.
If not, don't be surprised if you wake up tomorrow and find it's .0000311%
