Last night on FOX News’ The O’Reilly Factor, Billo criticized the FOX show The Family Guy during his Reality Check segment. Billo said this:
“As you may know, the FOX program Family Guy loves mocking conservatives and religious people”.
O’ Reilly then played a clip of one episode that featured Jesus sitting at the dinner table with the Griffins. Brian (the dog) says to Jesus, “Alright, I’ll be the one to say it. How do we know you’re really Jesus? Can you perform miracles?” Jesus says, “Sure, how about this?” and instantly makes sundaes appear from nowhere for each person at the table. Then Peter (the father) says, “Hey Jesus, can you do something for me?”, in which Jesus responds, “Sure Peter, what is it?”. Peter whispers in Jesus’ ear and seconds later, Lois' (the wife) breasts grow to such an enormous size, they pop out of her shirt.
watch the clip
After the clip plays, Billo says this:
“Well, that controversial Jesus show has been nominated for an Emmy, reminding me of a compassionate old saying, ‘They know not what they do.’”
I can honestly see how that episode might offend religious people, but for Bill O’Reilly to be the spokesman for religion or sexually offensive images on TV? You’ve got to be kidding me!
First of all, is Bill O’Reilly even religious? I can’t judge his soul, but I sure as hell can judge his words and behavior. Let’s take a look at this fine display of ‘christian’ behavior, shall we?
Yeah, Jesus yelled, “We’ll do it live! FUCK IT!” all the time from what I’m told. Didn’t Jesus say that while flipping over the tables of the money changers?
Secondly, why is Billo even offended by seeing an image a woman’s breasts enlarge, even if it’s only a cartoon? He didn’t seem too offended 5 years ago when he said these words to FOX producer Andrea Mackris:
“You would basically be in the shower and then I would come in and I’d join you and you would have your back to me and I would take that little loofah thing and kinda’ soap up your back…rub it all over you, get you to relax, hot water…and um…you know, you’d feel the tension drain out of you and uh you still would be with your back to me then I would kinda’ put my arm – it’s one of those mitts, those loofah mitts you know, so I got my hands in it…and I would put it around front, kinda’ rub your tummy a little bit with it, and then with my other hand I would start to massage your boobs, get your nipples really hard…’cuz I like that and you have really spectacular boobs…
So anyway, I’d be rubbing your big boobs and getting your nipples really hard, kinda’ kissing your neck from behind…and then I would take the other hand with the falafel (sic) thing and I’d put it on your pussy but you’d have to do it really light, just kind of a tease business…..
Here is the actual complaint filed by Mackris from thesmokinggun.com.
Billo appears to be obsessed with sexual images and continually being in the presence of attractive women on his show. He constantly shows images of scantily clad and even nude images (blurred so you can’t see nudity) on his program under the guise of legitimate human interest stories.
In fact, during the exact same show last night he did a segment about the Make-A-Wish foundation refusing charity money that was raised by girls in bikinis washing cars. Naturally a person who is offended at a mere cartoon wouldn’t show images of girls in bikinis washing cars, would he? Billo can tell the story without the images right? Apparently not.
Billo could talk about this topic with people who were not hot blonde babes right? Apparently not.
So you see, Billo is infatuated with young, gorgeous blondes and graphic sexual images, but at the same time wants us to believe he is a real conservative, or even religious. Hell, I bet he even enjoyed watching Lois Griffins cartoon boobs on the clip he showed!
It is quite obvious that O’ Reilly is not religious and that he’s a phony conservative. What has me baffled, is why O’Reilly even showed this clip and criticized it since the network that airs it is owned by O’Reilly’s own boss, Rupert Murdoch.
People may argue that the FOX Broadcasting Company is in no way affiliated with the FOX News channel, and they would be wrong. The FOX Broadcasting Company is owned by FOX Entertainment Group, and the FOX Entertainment Group is a subsidiary of News Corporation, owned by Rupert Murdoch.
Of course, this isn’t the first time a FOX News personality condemned programming from a News Corporation subsidiary. In February of this year, Red Eye host Greg Gutfeld called 9/11 truthers “mentally ill” when he was on FOX and Friends discussing that several episodes of the FX hit Rescue Me were going to deal with the 9/11 conspiracies. FX, of course, is owned by News Corporation.
Another thing that baffles me about O’Reilly’s condemnation of Family Guy is why would he expect a show whose creator is an atheist and openly liberal to advocate or embrace conservatism or religion? Creator Seth MacFarlane admitted he was an atheist in early May on Real Time with Bill Maher.
here’s the clip
Does Bill O’Reilly advocate positions of others that he does not embrace himself? Of course he doesn’t. I would not expect anyone to. But, naturally, here’s Billo believing because he is a (so-called) conservative and a (so-called) religious person, then everyone must hold the exact views he does. And if they don't, they’re a plague on society, despite the fact that Billo’s conduct, behind the scenes and even in some cases openly, is the complete opposite of what he professes to be.
