Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-NY) to Condi Rice on the "Don't Ask/Don't Tell" policy:
"...For some reason, the military seems more afraid of gay people than they are against terrorists, but they're very brave with the terrorists.... If the terrorists ever got a hold of this information, they'd get a platoon of lesbians to chase us out of Baghdad...."

OMG. A gang of tough, butch, pink-pistol wielding lesbians? Do they wear their T shirt sleves rolled up, and like maybe suspenders and boots and have slicked back hair and hold their cigarettes between thumb and forefinger and look at you through the smoke with just the right mixture of disdain and carefully concealed interest, moving over to the bar and ordering you a drink before leaning against the pool table, eyeing you now with open appraisal, letting you know that they're packing and....

So anyway, I'm working up some decent outrage here, and demand to know the location and phone numbers of these menaces to society immediately. Surely someone must think of the children?

From rod007.com (you can't even make this shit up...):
During the O’Reilly Factor segment on June 21st, while engaged in a discussion on Lesbian gangs, I inadvertently stated that gang members carry pistols that are painted pink and call themselves the "Pink Pistol Packing Group." I was not referring to the gay rights group "Pink Pistols" who advocates for the lawful rights of gays to carry weapons for protection. Further, I mentioned that there are "over 150 of these gangs" in the greater Washington DC area. What I actually meant is that there are over 150 gangs in the Washington DC area, some of which are in fact lesbian gangs. Lastly, I mentioned in the segment that there is this "national epidemic" of lesbian gangs. A better choice of words would have been to say that there is a growing concern nationally, and especially in major urban areas, of increased gang activity, which includes some lesbian gang activity.

I apologize for any misunderstanding this may have caused.

They jumped this poor young girl and indoctrinated her into their lesbian ways in the most brutal and sadistic way possible. And then they laughed about it once it was over. It was an incredible video.

This pretty much seals the deal. O'Reilly really isn't a conservative talk show host, he's actually an extremely clever parody of a conservative talk show host, kinda like a meta-colbert.

I mean, seriously, armed lesbian gangs? Terrorizing the streets of America?

I will now reveal to you all how this works:

Bill needs a new enemy to get his watchers riled up about, so he turns to his most reliable source for this information: his dartboards, the first one has the enemy; terrorists, immigrants, gays, pro-choice, etc.

The next board has the hook; meth-crazed, gun wielding, flag burning, you-get-the-idea.

The last board has different ethnicities. This determines from what minority group O'Reilly's expert will come from. This is an effort to convince us that Bill talks to or cares about anyone other than rich white people.

So this time round, it's gun toting lesbians, next time it could be crack fueled sharks with machete, the interviewer will be Native American, of course.

"You associate homosexuality as being... more of a social movement"

Maybe Wheeler does, and O'Reilly has talked to him enough to know that...

I figure that most FOX News viewers, however, view homosexuality as more of an anti-Christian agenda out to "indoctrinate" their children, as O'Reilly was exploiting here. Also, I suspect most non-FOX News viewers associate homosexuality as a state of being inclined to be attracted and wish to form romantic relationships with members of the same sex, generally members of the same sex who are similarly inclined.

There's nothing about this that isn't awful.

"lawless gay people" is maybe my favorite phrase in the whole clip, as it begs the question of just who is striving so hard to make gays outside of the law.

"Indoctrinate," however, is actually truly harmful, as it seems to be the point of the clip. Truly, what other purpose could this piece serve? "Watch out for roving groups of women!"? No, this was about claiming that the gays are trying to take you children. I'm just waiting for the Murdoch-sponsered pamplet of how only voting GOP will truly protect your kids from teh ghay.

(disclaimer: straight guy talking here. If there's truly a revolutionary, subversive gay agenda going on, though, I'd love to come along just for the ride.)

Make an outrageous statement, then whimper out a bullshit retraction that no one will see. Has O'Reilly aired Wheeler's apologies on his show?

Everything on TV nowadays is meant to be not what it seems: this is not news, it's pure entertainment. Much like reality television is completely unrealistic.

I do think that all Bill O'Reilly and his ilk (Ann Coulter is a good example), want are more publicity, so they say outrageous things. They should be ignored, and yet, here I am unable to resist a post. There is but one maxim in the media: any publicity is good publicity.

People watch them for entertainment. I read about them for entertainment. Those who believe what they say are beyond redemption, and they need to be ignored/isolated. The rest of us (whether conservative or liberal or other), should really stop talking about them and keeping the buzz about them going.
