"I don't see a difference between (Arianna) Huffington and the Nazis." Bill O'Reilly
Hyperbole? No! A million million times, no.
Okay, in the real world, perhaps. But we're in the Bizzaro universe of Bill O'Reilly, where God need not apply for Bill already knows all.
His is a galaxy where he knows more about the military than General Wesley Clark. A cosmos where he grasps the value of torture more than former POW John McCain. A dark hole where he is far more insightful of the pleasures one takes from being taken hostage and sexually abused than fifteen-year-old Shawn Hornbeck A macrocosm (my thesaurus is running thin) where writing books telling kids what's right for them after Bill sexually harassed a younger subordinate.
On the TV Facotr last night in an attempt to rationalize his condemnation of Arianna Huffington and The Huffington Post, he responded to a letter from a Holocaust survivor's family member who was "surprised about (Bill's) lapse of judgement comparing the tactics of the Nazis to the Huffington Post."
Bill went on to explain to this person whose family had suffered terribly from the scourge of fascism, the history of Hitler's party and just how Huffington is walking in their jackboots.
"If you look back at what happened in Germany you cannot escape the similarities, what Hitler and his cutthroats did back then and the hate-filled blogs, what they're doing now...today we're seeing the same thing on the Net."
Like he did to cover for his farce of dismissing of homeless veterans as nothing more than a problem of addiction, jumping on John Kerry and Peter Kings Veteran's bill ("WE are proposing a new G.I. Bill with the help of Rep. Peter King and Sen. John Kerry"), expect Bill to show up at the Holocaust Museum in Washington to illustrate his compassionate awareness of what six million plus went through and tell Survivors what they're going through.
Well, that's that. Lord Bill told it like it is. Arianna and Hitler. Two peas in a pod.
Now that that's settled, let's get to work and let the authorities know of Bill's warning. No use doing a Neville Chamberlain and letting Arianna get away with another Holocaust.
But leaving the lampooning for another day, the real question is: Should we let Bill O'Reilly continue this belittling of the memory of six million?
The answer is simple: Never again should six million be denigrated by O'Reilly or anyone else!
That is why we must tell all who knew what Bill is telling the Folks™ about what it was like to go through Nazi Germany and let them know that we will not let it happen again.
Tell Elie Wiesel how Bill has cheapened his experience, and pledge to him...
Tell Rabbi Marvin Hier of L.A.'s Simon Weisenthal Center Hier how Bill has demeaned the memory of those he has memorialized and pledge to him...
