This incident marks the THIRD time now that Billo has deceived his sheep about this comment. First it was omitting it from the clip, then it was lying/spinning in front of Chris Dodd…now, it’s just plain lying again

The true sign of a deranged lunatic isn’t just to lie alone. Anyone can lie (even if it’s repeatedly) and just be passed off as a deceiver or a misinformer. Billo doesn’t just stop at lying repeatedly. He lies over and over about the SAME incident, even when he doesn’t have to mention it.
On last Friday’s telecast of The Factor, Billo chalked up his THIRD incident in which he has lied about a comment he made roughly 2 ½ years ago on his radio show. In November of 2005, Billo was upset that voters in San Francisco were not allowing military recruiters to come visit their colleges and schools when he said this:
"Hey, you know, if you want to ban military recruiting, fine, but I'm not going to give you another nickel of federal money. You know, if I'm the president of the United States, I walk right into Union Square, I set up my little presidential podium, and I say, "Listen, citizens of San Francisco, if you vote against military recruiting, you're not going to get another nickel in federal funds. Fine. You want to be your own country? Go right ahead. And if Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead."
The first time Bill O’ LIElly lied to his faithful zombies [he calls fans] was a few days after the above November 8, 2005 comment when on his TV show he re-played the audio clip of this comment, but stopped the clip right after he said, “You want to be your own country? Go right ahead”, leaving out the al Qaeda remark.
He told his sheep right after airing the edited clip, “then I went on to do a satirical riff with a serious point”. Yes, Billo, it was so satirical that you were afraid to re-play THAT part of the clip. I find it hilarious that this is the same man who on countless occasions when others slam him for his outrageous comments, his first cry of defense is, “They took me out of context!!” But Billo edited OUT his OWN context on November 10, 2005 by excluding the al Qaeda comment on his TV show!! Hmmmmm.
The second time Billo deceived his dwindling audience was on August 2, 2007 when he had [then] Presidential Candidate Chris Dodd (D-CT) on his show to discuss Billo’s disturbing obsession with the website Daily Kos. My first story about this can be seen here.
Watch the clip
Anyone with a brain the size a marble can see that Dodd annihilates Loofah boy in this segment especially when Dodd brought up the fact that in 2005 O’ Reilly DID say the offensive comment about al Qaeda blowing up San Francisco and nothing being done for those people if O’ Reilly was President. Naturally, the self-proclaimed “No-Spin” guy did just that during the segment with Dodd. Spin!
Dodd told Loofah boy that his comment was made in 2005, but since he didn’t know that O’ Reilly said it on his RADIO show, rather than on his TV show, O’ Reilly used that fact to discredit Dodd even though Dodd had the EXACT quote and even the YEAR right. In that same clip (above), O’ Reilly first DENIES saying it at ALL, then admits, “I didn’t say it here…”
After the Dodd interview, I was driven (by pure hatred) of Loofah boy’s lies, I made a short film about the two incidents above.
Unlike the first two occasions where Billo lied and distorted/omitted the truth, Billo didn’t have to make reference to this on last Friday’s show where he brought up the 2005 comment again….and in usual O’ Reilly form, he lies about it one more time. Billo had Newt Gingrich (R-GA) on his show to discuss an ad campaign that Gingrich is doing with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called “We Can Solve It”. Billo said this to Gingrich:
“Tell me about Nancy Pelosi. She won't talk to me. In fact, she tried to get me fired because I made a joke out of San Francisco. If they didn't want the military, then the next time there was a terror attack, they're on their own. But tell me about Nancy Pelosi? Do you like her? Do you have a-----”
Watch the clip
Two lies here actually. FIRST LIE: Billo says, “I made a joke out of San Francisco..” It was NOT a joke. Since Billo loves context so much, the FULL context of his original comment is above. There was no laughing in that segment, nor even a hint of it.
Billo knew that what he said was offensive, so he knew he had two options after he made the statement: Either to say he was sorry, or to say it was a “joke”. Since Billo is incapable of saying he’s sorry for anything or to anybody, he unsurprisingly chose the latter.
SECOND LIE: Billo did NOT say of San Franciscans about his mock terror scenario “..they’re on their own” in his original comment. Again, Billo is violating the very standard he condemns everyone else for (taking him out of context) and doesn’t mention on last Friday’s show that he originally said his message to al Qaeda was to “Go right ahead!” if they wanted to blow up the Coit Tower. And he claims this was a JOKE? To wish terrorism on a city is funny?
Of course, he KNEW it wasn’t funny. This is why he OMITTED it during the re-airing of it.
Why do you REFUSE to re-air a JOKE Billo?
When others, such as Media Matters, exposes one of Billo’s many idiotic statements, he is the first to pout, “Out of context!”. When Billo’s “context” incriminates himself, he simply omits re-airing it.
BILL O’LIAR: DISGRACE AND EMBARRASSMENT TO AMERICA!!!
