Poor things.

Have you ever notice how a perpetual liar is usually the first to scream liar? Or a thief is usually the first to accuse someone of stealing? How about a rabid homophobe preaching hate towards those who can’t help being who they were born to be usually turn out to be the first to bend over?

That’s what Bill O’Reilly & Michelle Malkin are like. They’re usually the first to scream something (this person is anti-American, that person hate’s the troops, the left is planting hate on their sites, far-left loons are trying to trample upon their free speech by going after their advertisers) then when you look deeper into what they are screaming about, it turns out that they’re usually the worst offenders.

Take how they’re now calling those who call them on their shit, hate-mongers.

Bill O’Reilly and his rabid lapdog, Michelle Malkin, the king and princess of hate, anti-Americanism and extreme views even for the right side of the American Aisle (Ann Coulter would be the Queen) started a battle with what they refer to as the “far left” blogs, particularly that of Daily Kos. What’s funny is the Daily Kos isn’t a far left blog, it’s a free blog (for all who don’t mind the ads) dedicated to electing Democrats and one which prides itself on the most American value of them all, free speech. There are over 100,000 users and millions of comments posted each year. Does Bill even know 100 people who are literate?

While there are only few rules (members seems to be able to police themselves quite well taking on and down those who are there just to cause trouble), they don’t take kindly to slandering, accusing or perpetuating something that can’t be backed up, with links, by legitimate sources. While some trouble makers slip through the cracks – usually plants from other right wing factories like O’Reilly’s & Malkin’s (notice how they’ve already accused the “left” of doing exactly that when it’s nearly impossible as Orally charges a hefty fee for membership to his hate-site and would ban a person at the first sign of disagreeing with his views and Malkin thrives on stirring up the hate on her site personally).

What’s funny (and quite sad) is that BillO hasn’t figured out that he can’t quite hide from the truth out here on the internets, you know those series of tubes Alaskan Senators can’t seem to wrap their stone age heads around. That’s because you can’t hide. What you’ve said and who you really are is out there…forever.

Everything these true sociopaths accuse their detractors of doing, being and saying, they excel in. From threatening the lives of our elected officials to making threats against our government, these psychopaths know no bounds (click on these screenshots captured by AmericaBlog to enlarge picture). Mind you, these aren’t fly by night posters, they’re people who have been posting on their sites for long periods of time:

Bill O'Reilly's Web site threatens Hillary's life:


Bill OReilly.com: "If [Hillary] wins... my guns are loaded"

Both of which have cause the Secret Service to investigate.

How about these:

BillOReilly.com suggests terrorist attack against US Capitol building:

BillOReilly.com: Islam is "nothing more than a cult that condones murder":

Then O'Reilly promotes "burn down the Capitol" fan on his TV show:

Glenn Greenwald, in a matter of just a few clicks of a mouse, was able to expose the truth about Michelle Malkin's two hate sites, MichelleMalkin.com and HotAir.com. The following comments which she promoted are all from this month, and because they are so representative of the filth she regularly promotes, they were easily found by a research assistant, Matthew Berman, in roughly an hour:

Glenn states:

One of the lowest and most dishonest tactics is to attempt to smear and demonize a blog by exploiting statements left on the blog by commenters despite the fact that the comments have no relationship to the arguments made by the blogger. It is no surprise that right-wing pundits have made that deceitful tactic one of their most frequently invoked weapons. The most recent example, of course, is Bill O'Reilly's campaign to pressure Jet Blue to withdraw its sponsorship of Yearly Kos due to statements made by Daily Kos commenters who have no connection to the site other than using it to comment…

.. The following comments which she promoted are all from this month, and because they are so representative of the filth she regularly promotes, they were easily found by a research assistant, Matthew Berman, in roughly an hour:

MichelleMalkin.com's NAACP thread: Most blacks just want a free ride:



NAACP thread: "Colored gangs" are rampant:



NAACP thread: "MichelleMalkin.com on "negro culture":




Hot Air's call for a "jihad" against Democrats -- including arresting them for treason and seizing their bank accounts:



From Malkin's "Keith Ellison Watch" post -- American Muslims should be banned from government:


Michelle Malkin.com on American Muslims:



MichelleMalkin.com copying Ann Coulter: John Edwards is a fairy:



Hot Air: John Edwards is a "butt pirate":



MichelleMalkin.com promotes theory that John Kerry shot himself in Vietnam:

Nothing compares to what has come directly out of the vile mouths of these two. The following lists were documented by Media Matters, your one-stop warehouse of all the vile and villainy thugs like these have uttered throughout their venomous careers:

Then of course are Bill’s outright lies, winning Media Matters for America 2004 Misinformer of the Year. Keep in mind that these are just from a 2004!

1. O'Reilly falsely claimed Bush didn't oppose 9-11 Commission. O'Reilly defended President George W. Bush from a Kerry-Edwards '04 TV ad highlighting Bush's opposition to creation of the 9-11 Commission by denying that Bush had ever opposed the commission. In fact, Bush did oppose the creation of the 9-11 Commission. (10/21/04)

2. O'Reilly falsely claimed Iraq had ricin. O'Reilly responded to a caller to his radio show by defending the Iraq war: "They did have ricin up there in the north -- so why are you discounting that so much?" In fact, the Duelfer report (the final report of the Iraqi Survey Group, led by Charles A. Duelfer, which conducted the search for weapons in Iraq following the U.S.-led invasion) indicates that Iraq did not have ricin. (10/19/04)

3. O'Reilly repeated discredited claims on Iraq-Al Qaeda link. O'Reilly interrupted a former Clinton administration official who tried to correct the record on O'Reilly's claim that terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi constitutes a direct link between Al Qaeda and Saddam Hussein's Iraq. He also allowed a conservative guest to repeat without challenge other discredited claims about Iraq's supposed involvement in terrorism -- claims O'Reilly has himself cited in the past. (9/27/04)

4. O'Reilly fabricated "Paris Business Review" as source for success of French boycott. O'Reilly falsely claimed "they've lost billions of dollars in France according to 'The Paris Business Review'" due to an American boycott he advocated of French imports. Media Matters for America found no evidence of a publication named "The Paris Business Review." (4/27/04)

5. O'Reilly cited phony stats to argue that taxes on rich are excessive. O'Reilly tried to "blow off" the argument that wealthy Americans ought to pay more taxes by citing phony statistics about the tax burden the rich currently bear. (6/30/04)

6. O'Reilly confused on elementary economics. O'Reilly told a caller on his radio show, "We [the United States] have a trade deficit with everybody, because everybody wants our stuff, and we're not wild about snails" -- indicating that he doesn't know the definition of "trade deficit" and implying that the United States runs a trade surplus with France. In fact, in the first four months of 2004, the United States had a $3 billion trade deficit with France. (6/10/04)

7. O'Reilly doctored quotation to suggest Soros wished his own father dead. During his smear campaign against progressive financier, philanthropist, and political activist George Soros, O'Reilly doctored a 1995 quotation by Soros to make it seem as if Soros wished his own father dead. (6/1/04)

8. O'Reilly questioned if Kennedy would show up to Democratic convention ... as Kennedy spoke behind him. O'Reilly teased an upcoming segment of The O'Reilly Factor, broadcast live from the Democratic National Convention, by saying of convention speaker Senator Edward Kennedy: "When we come back, we'll let you listen to Ted Kennedy for a while, if he shows up." In fact, Kennedy had already shown up and had been speaking for several minutes, as O'Reilly need only have turned around to see. (7/27/04)

9. O'Reilly disparaged Democrats with trifecta of voter falsehoods. In a discussion about what went wrong for Democrats in the November 2 election, O'Reilly claimed that Democrats "lost votes from four years ago"; that "18- to 24[-year-old]s didn't go" to the polls; and that "[c]ommitted Republicans didn't carry the day for the president; independents did." All three claims are false. (11/4/04)

10. O'Reilly on the radio: Three lies, one broadcast. Lie No. 1: Bush tax cuts didn't create the budget deficit. Lie No. 2: "Socialistic" French, Germans, and Canadian governments tax at 80 percent. Lie No. 3: Canadian, British, and French media are "government-controlled," but Italian media is free. (7/7/04)

Media Matters also takes on Michelle Malkin:

Michelle Malkin writes a nationally syndicated column that appears in about 200 newspapers and is available online at the conservative website Townhall.com. She also maintains a personal weblog, MichelleMalkin.com.

Malkin is a frequent guest on Fox News Channel and is author of three books: Invasion: How America Still Welcomes Terrorists, Criminals, and Other Foreign Menaces to Our Shores (Regnery, 2002), In Defense of Internment: The Case for "Racial Profiling" in World War II and the War on Terror (Regnery, 2004), and Unhinged: Exposing Liberals Gone Wild (Regnery, 2005).

In Defense of Internment was widely criticized and was debunked in an 11-part blog series by Eric Muller of the University at North Carolina Law School and Greg Robinson of the University of Quebec at Montreal; the series includes responses and correspondence from Malkin.

Malkin's primary issue of concern is immigration, and her thoughts on this subject appear on her Immigration Blog, as well as VDARE.com, a website that describes itself as "white nationalist." In 2003, the Southern Poverty Law Center added VDARE.com to its list of hate websites.

In November 2004, the Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk, Virginia, dropped Malkin's column: "[R]eaders often took issue with her [Malkin's] seemingly mean-spirited rantings and suggested that she be dropped," the paper's public editor said.

From their article, Malkin, writer of "mean-spirited rantings," accused Edwards bloggers of "foul-mouthed nutroots diatribes":

Malkin, who wrote about the Edwards campaign's hires here, here, here, and here, described Marcotte's writing as "foul-mouthed nutroots diatribes," "lunatic blogging," and the product of the "warped mind of John Edwards' blogmaster."

Media Matters has noted numerous examples of Malkin displaying the qualities that caused the Pilot to cease publication of her column:

· In media appearances on August 9, 2004, promoting her book In Defense of Internment (Regnery, 2004), Malkin advocated racial profiling; defended the internment of Japanese-Americans (and other ethnic minorities) during World War II; and called for the removal of then-Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta, claiming that he couldn't be objective on the issue of racial profiling because of his personal experience as an interned Japanese-American.

· On the August 19, 2004, edition of MSNBC's Hardball, speaking about false allegations against Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) by Swift Boat Veterans for Truth regarding the injuries he suffered while serving in the Vietnam War, Malkin alleged, "They are [sic] legitimate questions about whether or not it was a self-inflicted wound." Host Chris Matthews called the allegations "complete nonsense."

· In her March 29, 2006, nationally syndicated column, Malkin referred to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and then-California Lt. Gov. Cruz M. Bustamante -- both Democrats -- as "Latino supremacists."

· On the March 30, 2006, edition of Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor, Malkin declared that Latinos protesting a House bill aimed at cracking down on illegal immigration believe in "reconquista," or the theory that "the American Southwest belongs to Mexico" -- which, in the words of one writer, "aren't, for the most part, ideas held by Mexicans: they're ideas held by white supremacists and neo-Nazis."

· On the August 23, 2006, edition of The O'Reilly Factor, in a discussion of illegal immigration with O'Reilly, Malkin said that the idea of reconquista is "mainstream" among immigrants.

· During the May 8, 2006, edition of The O'Reilly Factor, Malkin agreed with host Bill O'Reilly's claim that, under a California state bill that would require textbooks to recognize the accomplishments of historical lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender [LGBT] figures, "if you are a teacher ... you're not going to be able to say bad things about [convicted mass murderer] Jeffrey Dahmer," because Dahmer was "a gay cannibal."

· On the June 1, 2006, edition of Fox News' The Big Story with John Gibson, Malkin blasted the media coverage of alleged killings of Iraqi civilians by U.S. troops in Haditha, claiming that there are "puddles of drool in the offices of the L.A. Times and The New York Times."

Additional instances of extreme rhetoric and insensitive behavior by Malkin have been documented by the weblog Think Progress:

· On the June 12, 2006, edition of The O'Reilly Factor, Malkin mocked the suicides of three prisoners at a U.S. detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, saying "the reaction to the suicides should be, 'Boo-freakin-hoo.'"

· On December 4, 2006, Think Progress noted that a video was being propagated on Malkin's Hot Air website of an anonymous C-SPAN viewer who called former President Jimmy Carter "a bigot and a racist and an anti-Semite," and accused him of "cozying up with every dictator, thug, Islamic terrorist there is." Like the story on the Edwards campaign bloggers, that story was picked up by the mainstream media, being aired MSNBC.

So you see, when people like Bill & Michelle scream something – like haters or bias or fascists, beware! They’re really trying to deflect the spotlight from their own hateful hearts, fear-based biases and fascist fantasies they which they could instill in our beloved country.
