Bill O’Reilly – Communism Has Been Rendered Impotent
If as a staunch Conservative you were/are a faithful follower of Fox New’s Bill O’Reilly, and you hadn’t yet received your wake up call with regards to who & what Bill is, you got it last night. So long as you didn’t blink, anyway.
On last night’s show (September 8, 2009 – “A day that will go down in infamy”) Bill and Glenn Beck were debating the political proclivities of the now deposed Van Jones – the Obama Czar with a cool name but anti-American worldview. Van Jones is a card carrying, self avowed, Communist. He doesn’t hide it, he’s thrown it out there for everyone to see He can even give you the date of his conversion if you care to ask, something similar to many Christians upon becoming ‘Born Again.’
The problem we have with this over here at Uncommon Sense is that in so doing the media should have had a field day with it. Communism!! Dreaded Communism!! America, and Americans, actually have an history of fighting Communists, and you needn’t look back too far in order to study the fight(s). Many Americans have lost their lives over the decades in this fight.
Communism is evil, bottom line. It always has been, and it always will be. Therefore, those espousing it will, by design or result, promote and accomplish evil in its name, regardless of how sincere they may be.
If you’re an astute student of history, and your politics aren’t as, “…crooked as a warped shillelagh” (that’s an old Chief O’Hara reference from the classic 60’s Batman show), you would note that the fight goes on here and now, but the game plan is – by design – different. Today the game plan here in this country is a takeover of our childrens’ minds. Don’t laugh, that is no exaggeration, it’s true. You trust your public school system? Here’s the best advice you’ll get all day – heck, all year – DON’T. Trust yourself with your child’s mind, not someone else. However, I digress…
Today Communism in America is taking a page out of Islam’s playbook. These two cults are very similar in approach. In America Communists cannot simply ‘build a wall’ or take over industry with one stroke of the pen after the revolution is complete. Won’t work that way here, as there isn’t a revolution, per se. In today’s fast paced world the game plan has been slowed a bit, so that you don’t see the plan in action. Think the boiling frog metaphor and you’ll have the idea. Today the plan is evolutionary in nature, not revolutionary. Revolution works very well in third world nations were the citizenry isn’t armed and oftentimes starved for food, you see. Here we’ve got those angles covered, as we posses firearms and there’s a Mac’s at just about every major intersection.
And so last night we saw a glaring example of the success of this plan. The “Pragmatist” O’Reilly doesn’t see this newer, slow paced, plan coming, either. He’s quite convinced that Communism isn’t a “factor” these days (yes, pun intended). And he said so. In discussing the Communist Van Jones with Glenn Beck he made the following comment:
O’Reilly – “Communism isn’t a threat to us any more.”
Beck – “Are you kidding! me?!?”
The interview is revealing on many levels. The argument in question begins around the 4:30 mark,with the ”Money Shot’ at 5:10. You might not believe your ears, but it’ll be good for you, so listen up.
We now know something very interesting about Bill O’Reilly: He’s no Conservative. Say it out loud to yourself, so that you get comfortable with it, as I know for many of you this won’t come easy. Bill O’Reilly is no Conservative. Okay, now congratulate yourself, you’ve just made a big step in your own understanding of Conservatism!
Something that must be clearly understood by every Conservative (be it the Ayn Rand or Christian variety) is that NO American can deny the ever present lurking evil of Communism AND be a Conservative at the same time. Anyone espousing the death of Communism in America, the ineffectiveness of the Communist worldview in America, is either a ‘double agent’ (which I do not believe O’Reilly to be) or isn’t clear on the subject. O’Reilly simply isn’t clear, which means he will inevitably make additional errors, as well. You, as his viewer, must then know how to filter through his weaknesses.
Why O’Reilly is unclear is somewhat baffling to me. One look at our major colleges, Bill, and you should be abundantly clear. O’Reilly actually went to Harvard, how did he miss it, anyway? (Another certain somebody also went to Harvard, and his friends are almost exclusively Communists & Anarchists, can you guess to whom I’m referring?) I’m seeing it in high schools, let alone colleges. I suppose it all boils down to what you believe Communism is, and what it is not. If you aren’t a “pinhead” you’ll likely see it in more places than you care to know. It’s alive and well in America.
Today’s Communists are sneaking into both the brains of your children (this took hold in the 60’s, hence the politicians of today), and subsequently into the policies of those embracing that worldview. One example is the rapid, unprecedented, rush towards National Health Care, i.e. – Socialized Medicine. This is a Communist construct, make no mistake about it. As is the takeover of auto giants, ‘cash for clunkers,’ the takeover of Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac, etc. Not one of those bears any resemblance to Capitalism,which is why you see the outrage in various townhall meetings. Many Americans understand this, and the left wing (re: Communist) media wants to demonize them as a result. The program must go forward, Comrade.
And O’Reilly, as well intended as he may be, fails to plainly state it in those terms. Glenn Beck, on the other hand, does not. Glenn Beck is quite clear and willing to call a Commie a Commie. O’Reilly has left wing (re: Communist) hacks such as Mark Lamont Hill, Ellis Henican, etc., Glenn Beck does not. O’Reilly tries to play it down the middle, but as any Believer understands, a house divided cannot stand. The “No Spin zone” had me spinning last night.
Last night was a true coming out moment for Officer O’Reilly. He stated his position, and unless he comes out tonight, on tonight’s show, and begs our understanding for what passes as the single largest ‘brain fart’ he’s ever had in his entire career, I have only one thing to say to Bill O’Reilly:
