    I don't believe in what Fox commentator Bill O'Reilly says at all. He calls himself an "independent". That's funny. Or disgusting, I don't know which. But I do sometimes watch him, because I like to know my enemy.

    Anyways, as anyone who watches The Factor w/ Bill O'Reilly knows, Bill thinks the US is threatened by what he terms "secular progressives" (whatever that even means). And he says that, in particular, the leftwing group MoveOn.org is "Despicable! Despicable!" (a direct quote).

    What exactly does he think MoveOn.org is doing? Grinding puppies? Killing babies? Making war widows homeless?

    I ask this here, because I sent an email to Mr. O'Reilly asking him this very question, along with why he says this and still calls himself an independent. But he never replied.

    1. Why would he reply to you?
    2. He is certainly right leaning, but does take a more centerist stance when it comes to some issues.

    As for moveon it is what they say and stand for that makes them horrible. They started during the Clinton impeachment when he lied under oath. And after that they kept getting worse and worse.

    Bill O'Reilly is an intellectual bully very far to the right.

    MoveOn is my favorite political organization. Sometimes they are too liberal, but about 80% of the time I totally agree with them.

    You might be too far left if you think Bill is very far to the right. Look at his stance on social issues...more middle/left then right.

    As for Moveleft they never ever will call out a liberal.

    What are his views on gay marriage and marijuana legalization? I really don't know, since I dislike him so much.

    He is for civil unions without restrictions. He said this should be a state issue and let people of each state decide. The federal government should be out of the debate. And that no one has "the right" to marry, just like driving a car it is a privlidge.

    “What the authorities should do is decriminalize pot use. You wanna do it in your house, not bother anyone? Fine.-Bill O'Reilly

    I can't answer the question for something that he is asking someone else.

    ok but I'm asking you. You said what they stand for and say makes them horrible. Why do you say that?
     
  10. I like Moveon. I ALSO don't think Bill O'Reilly is NEARLY as far right as many other people that have shows on fox news. Yes, I knew his stance on marijuana legalization. I can't think of any right now but there was various other things that he's more middle of the road in then various other people on that station. Like Hannity. Honestly Hannity is my very least fav person on that channel... he makes me so mad I can't even stand it. I would say O'Reilly, sure, he's right wing about a lot of stuff but not everything.

    Okay, an example I can think of between O'Reilly and Hannity. With the shooting of Michael Brown O'Reilly I remember near the beginning saying something that at least sounded like he was giving thought to the possibility that the police were totally wrong in the situation. He didn't say that was the case but that it was possible and should be investigated furthur. Hannity, on the other hand, was TOTALLY freaking out about how the police have such hard jobs and this particular police officer had to have been in the right because police are just so awesome and honest, etc.

    O'Reilly at least at times tries to think through a situation before jumping to conclusions....even if many of his stances end up being right wing. He can at least sometimes think out of the box.

    Moveon is far left, they started defending a criminal and have just kept it going. They have endorced an ad that compared President Bush to Hitler. They have had a number of false and misleading ads about John McCain and others. They are funded by the 1%er George Soros who made money betting against America, yet for some reason liberals love him and give him a pass.

    What did MoveOn say about John McCain that was false?

    So you think that the former President of the US is as bad as a man who killed 6 million Jews? That is sick to even think that, it is disrespectful to the Jews. And insulting to every decent human being.

    Well, really, it's not that far off. Bush's misguided actions in invading Iraq have led to over 175,000 unnecessary deaths. At least 125,000 were civilians. Between 800,000 and 1,000,000 children have lost one or both parents.

    Indeed. Even though I can't forgive Bill O'Reilly for starting the boycott of everything French 10 years ago, he can at least have decent content on his shows from time to time unlike many political newscasters. On the other hand, Shawn Hannity's bigotry drives me to the point of pure unfiltered rage.

    If Bush was Hitler, Iraq would be the 52nd American state and the numbers you quoted would have skyrocketed exponentially.
