Bill O’Reilly’s Lesbian Fantasies

posted by on July 10 at 10:57 AM

This amazingly idiotic and inflammatory segment recently ran on The O’Reilly Factor, and is so fucking stupid it will make your face hurt. Seattle jounalist David Neiwert has a thorough debunking of the bullshit on his blog. Still, intelligent debunkings and awestruck gawking hardly seem a sufficient response to a piece that could feasibly up violence against gays exponentially. (“If you see a group of gay people, it’s a gang that wants to rape you at gunpoint!” seems to be the unspoken message.) Sigh.

Okay,
We heard you says that they're inducting young kids into these gangs, but are they actually recruiting these kids into the gay lifestyle. 'Cause you know, that would be REALLY bad.
It would be funny if it were on the Colbert Report.

Give the guy a break - now that he's not reporting on the war anymore, he's got to fill his show with *something*.

You guys are a bunch of squares. Get hip! Islamic terror is so 2006 - lesbionic terror is all the rage these days.

...wow. Only on O'Reilly's show could being attacked by a group of women be a bad thing. :P

If any of those lesbionic binches come after ME with their pink pistols, they'd better WATCH OUT. I've got a loofah and I'm not afraid to use it.

Clarification and apology:

First of all, let me thank you for your feedback surrounding the O'Reilly Factor discussion on Lesbian Gangs. I received several e-mails from viewers, some positive and some negative, offering comments and constructive criticisms. Some of the e-mails I received were threatening and simply hostile.

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.

Sincerely,

Rod Wheeler

"Now, when they recruit the kids, are they indoctrinating them into homosexuality?"

RIOT GRRLS, Literally! Pink Pistol Packing Group!

Wow.

"You usually associate homosexuals with a social movement, not a criminal movement."

WTF? I'm not going to deny that these gangs exist -- I can't, since this is the first I'm hearing of the phenomenon. But if you ask me, the "story" seems like hysterical, sensationalist bullshit. Is that really lesbian gang footage? Please.

Sex sells, and hot lesbian sex sells better. Why? Because hidden beneath the mythos of the bulldyke, that scary lesbian your mother warned you about, is a submissive male fantasy. Bill O'Reilly fears female power, and craves it at the same time. Yes, Mommy. That's our subtext here, folks.

it's brilliant.... when you completely make up a story including the groups involved and the actions they took, then there is no one to sue for libel.

Agreed with 11... It'd be hard to legally mete out a punishment commensurate to the crime O'Reilly is committing. Also, I suspect a lot of the footage was just other kinds of youth violence. The girl fight they had closer shots of seemed like any white trash ho-bag tussle - not especially gay. Those girls looked like former Britney Spears fans. Yeah, this is total insanity... Strange how the world seems to spring this kinda shit on us with increasing regularity since 9-11. The contents of "Last Days" are looking more portentous all the time.

It's too bad we don't have a news outleet whose owner is more right-wing than the rest of them, that could engage in constant propaganda and fear mongering.

Maybe it could have some Orwellian ads for itself like 'fair and balanced'.

Oh wait, that wasn't a nightmare. :(

What is sad about all this is the rubes who watch Fox for their news and believe this shit. I'm sure I want to even know how many people use Fox for their news. Fox spreads hate.

On a related note, I was glad to see CNN expose it's bias and get torn a new one by Michael Moore. The Sicko websites rebuttal to CNN's hit piece is well worth the read.

Wow, gays doing the exact same thing that straight people do, that's news worthy!

According to this Wired article, people who watch the Daily Show / Colbert Report are significantly more well-informed on current events than people who watch Fox News. I wonder why?

Pink Pistol Packing Group!
That would be a great band name.

My favorite line:
After talking about how it's just not normal to hear about gay groups attacking innocent people (I wonder why?), bill says,
"But you're saying this is all over the country, detective?"

Well gee, I was never scared of gays before...but if this "detective" says I should be...by god, who am I to question him?

Well, at least Bill'O didn't call them "practicing" homosexuals. Cause then I'd really get offended.

Millions and millions of straight men in Middle America are going to be SO disappointed when they find out that Fox News accidentally mixed up porn plots with news again.

O Reilly has gone too far! AGAIN! Isn't there some way we can go after him or FOX for inciting violence? People could die because of these lies, especially the child rape part. I wonder how many murders of innocent gay women this will lead to. FOX should have their license pulled--you can't cry "fire" in a theater, you shouldn't be able to tell these kind of lies on TV (although I know it happens all the time this one really pisses me off!)

Oh my god, i am so making this a reality! Can I find 5 or 10 fags and dykes here that want to enact this for a photo shoot sometime soon? I'm so serious. I'll get the guns and paint them pink and even find a hapless victim. email me already...

This would be funny except that so many TV viewers don't have the critical thinking skills to notice that Rod Wheeler doesn't give a single specific example. Heard it from a friend who...heard it from a friend who... meets Faster (Lesbian) Pussycat! Kill Kill! (REO Speedwagon meets Russ Meyer! Who'da thunk it?)

I just want to clarify...Don't want to seem like I'm attacking Wheeler, who actually had the integrity to clarify things here and actually doesn't have a journalism background (#2 making him a prime candidate for Fox "News", but #1 disqualifying him from that organization).

Posted by Julie | July 10, 2007 9:13 PM

26 -- That wasn't Wheeler clarifying anything, and "clarifying" is certainly a very inaccurate way of saying "Lied, and then rewrote his lies into vague truths which don't provide any evidence of any sort of threat at all"

I think it's funny that all the women they show in those grainy clips are young and skinny ... all the lesbians I know are semi-overweight middle aged women with kids and minivans.
