O’Reilly Washes Hands Of Any Wrong Doing In Death Of Dr. Tiller
Bill “O’Really” of Fox News The Factor, surrounded by his cronies and their reinforcing statements, tried last night, like Pontius Pilate, to wash his hands in any part of the murder of Doctor George Tiller.
“O’Really” used the standard “This is America and I can speak my mind” routine but then after trying to justify his past vile remarks, he ventured into again vilifying Doctor Tiller even in death.
I’m reminded of a quote from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short story The Freshest Boy,
“It isn’t given us to know when one word will heal or one word will kill.”
Like the person who yells “fire” in a crowded theater, the “rabble rouser”, who calls himself a “commentator” , must bear responsibilty for his words and there effect on others.
