Bill O'Reilly Schmoozes with Shyster Sharpton

Al Sharpton is one of the biggest shysters, ignoramuses, and extortion artists in the history of the United States. We've heard a lot of him lately in the news for some reason. Like Jesse Jackson and Don King, he makes a lot of money extorting others. Unfortunately, they're all black. I'm sure there are white extortion artists, but they're not as fawned over by the media as Don, Jesse, and Al.

Al Sharpton, Don King, and Jesse Jackson are human desecrations of the dream espoused by Martin Luther King. Yet they are wildly popular in the media. Why?

And why would radio and TV talk show host Bill O'Reilly even give Al Sharpton the time of day? Why does he even have him on his show? Oh, ratings.

O'Reilly is a pretty smart guy, but his shows are a waste of time. He hardly lets his guests finish a sentence. His often extreme rudeness is an affront to the political views he allegedly espouses. So it should actually not surprise me that, along with Democratic Senator and presidential candidate John Edwards, Bill O'Reilly is one of the two guests of honor at Al Sharpton's upcoming "[Destroyers] of the Dream VIP Reception" next week.

Okay. It doesn't.

  1. Smartness does not equal goodness. You are correct that it should not surprise you to see O'Reilly schmoozing with Sharpton. Perhaps they favor differing political views, but they have significant similarities. That is why I can't stand either of them.

  2. What frustrates me is that so many conservatives do like O'Reilly, and Hannity. They, in my opinion, are just blowhards, and do a great disservice to the things that I believe in.

  3. Oh that more conservatives could seperate the jackassery of Hannity and O'Reilly from the actual conservative philosophy like you Frank. The identity crisis facing conservatism and the Republican Party is complex, but fed in part by the inaccurate image that all conservatives are blowhard jerks like O'Reilly and Hannity. These guys are doing long term damage to the conservative movement by alienating reasonable moderate Americans.

    Too bad.

  4. What bugged me probably the most, early on is when Rush Limbaugh used to say (does he still say it?--I don't listen to him much) that we needn't worry about following the news, because he'd just tell us what we need to know.

    I always liked to think that my political party was above the buffoonery and name calling. Maybe that means I'm not sure which party I'm in anymore!
