A crazy old bastard stormed into the Holocaust Museum and killed a security guard. He killed a man with a son and family. He killed an American citizen in an act of lawlessness supported on his website, supported by a loosely connected band of like-thinking people.
If he was a Muslim, Bill O' Reilly would call this an act of terrorism. But the violent miscreant is a white Christian, so this deed barely made a dent in Mr. No Spin's program. He let Dennis Miller yak about Katie Couric and Sarah Palin, but not a word about an octegenarian Jew hater (no, not Mel Gibson's dad). Now, if this human waste was an Arab, it would have been half of the Factor's hour, and O' Reilly would have screamed at whatever liberal was dumb enough to take crap off of O' Reilly, screaming which is always accompanied by a reminder of his ratings, because arrogance without conceit is a like a day without sunshine.
I hate to disappoint America Firsters like Tancredo and Dobbs, but Eric Rudolph and Timothy McVeigh represent terrorism. Isn't it amazing that four boneheads who thought they could blow up Ft. Dix with a Bic lighter from miles away are considered more dangerous than men who actually killed people? Isn't it amazing that that four fools without a clue who never took a life in their attempt to blow up a synagogue are considered more lethal than a man who killed a man guarding a museum that carried the message of what happens when one group is singled out for destruction?
Someday,someone at Fox News will realize that the aging demographic that pays their bills is dying out, and by the time they go after the one that succeeds them, it will be too late.
