Bill O’Reilly….there comes a point where just saying that someone is being a pigheaded idiot isn’t enough. Apparently, O’Reilly can’t gather just how transparent he is. While the long-time FOX host claimes that he does not aim to discriminate against lesbians and gays, “the gay marriage issue should be decided by each state.”
O’Reilly, who attended Catholic school, does appear to be able to read, but still has no understanding that the US Supreme Court’s rulings does not take away from that. Instead, it gives that decision back to the states and has the Federal Government honor the choices made by the states.
O’Reilly also railed against the decision by the US Supreme Court in their decision to vacate the ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals allowing the supporters of Proposition 8 to appeal the ruling. He whined pathetically that “the Supreme Court has morphed into a political organization, not a body that seeks to uphold the Constitution.”
Maybe O’Reilly should try, I don’t know, actually reading the Constitution because I think it does not mean what he thinks it means. In fact, Prop 8 violated the US Constitution several times, and just because O’Reilly wants to make sure that the Catholic Church’s views on same-sex marriage are upheld throughout the United States does not mean that the Supreme Court did not uphold the Constitution in either ruling.
The dyspeptic, bilious, and cantankerous O’Reilly went on to get into a shouting match with Mary Katharine Ham and Juan Williams. At one point, Williams claimed that Chief Justice Roberts “made a decision based on what he thought was in the political best interest of the court.” At which point, O’Reilly shouted “But that’s not his job! That’s not his job, Juan!”
O’Reilly loves to portray himself as a reasonable, rational man, but in all honesty, he is little more than a whining little five year old who has been told he can’t have ice cream.
Sorry…that’s insulting to five year olds, isn’t it?
