Keith Olbermann Hits Billo, Abused Children, Way Below the Belt

Let me say, first, that Bill O’Reilly is an enemy of women, an enemy of children, and an all-around content-thieving scumbag.  I believe in redemption, but that piece of shit has a loooong way to go.

But, Keith, WE are supposed to be better than that.  By “we,” I mean all thinking, feeling human beings.  I got into a pitched Twitter battle the other with a liberal because I dared to criticize your over-the-top response to some gentle ribbing, and this is why.  We are supposed to be better than this.

You, sir, owe an apology to every child who has ever been tortured at the hands of a cowardly parent, for, no matter how that child turns out, the abuse is no laughing matter.

I’m referring to your Bill O’Reilly “Best Persons” segment from last night, which begins with this line:

In his nightly round of self-applause last night, designed to drown out the echo of daddy hitting him…

Here’s the video:

Update: The YouTube clip has been removed. Here’s a link to the MSNBC version.

Now, Keith, your value as an oasis of dissent during the Bush years cannot be underestimated, but hyour escalating mean streak threatens to ruin whatever good you have done.

This isn’t a new thing for you.  Almost a year ago, I reported on a Countdown episode in which you tried to shame Sarah Palin by making a donation to the Special Olympics, while also using a “short bus” graphic to mock the McCain campaign earlier in the show.  I contacted MSNBC to see if they’d stop using the graphic, and got no comment.  The “short bus” graphic remained.

Now, again, Bill O’Reilly is much, much worse, but he’s a special kind of prick.  His assertion that a kidnapped child enjoyed his years-long rape, alone, earns him that distinction.

You, however, have sunk to an unacceptable low, and you should apologize.

  1. I can kinda understand why KO is being a bit snide…I mean…I myself get a bit miffed with all the craziness flying around. Poke someone enough times, they will hit back. Why is it that WE always have to take the higher road? Its not like Bill’O doesn’t have it coming! LOL

    Sometimes, you gotta fight fire with fire…meet ugly with ugly.
