O’Reilly Washes Hands Of Any Wrong Doing In Death Of Dr. Tiller


crimescene1_cefa_02Bill “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.

    Who ever killed Tiller should be made into a saint immediately. O’Reilly is not responsible for the death of the man merely because he called an abortionist an abortionist. As far as I’m concerned, Tiller should have been given the death penalty after his first murderous abortion.

    In one breath you praise taking a life by murder and in the next breath you condemn taking a life by murder.

    I did, didn’t I. I was thinking that this miserable wretch of a man, Tiller who hated humanity was finally put out of his misery. Having killed as many as sixty thousand potential humans puts him in the same category as the Nazi elimination of Jews. I condone the murder of one as a trade for the 60K he slaughtered. His murder was morally overdue.

    As a liberal, who is pro-life and anti-death penalty, I believe much like Barry Goldwater; “You can’t legislate morality.” The problem is that half of the country approaches these issues as moral issues and as you stated about Tiller’s murder, “…was morally overdue.” The rule of “law” seems to be damned in your statement, for constitutionally he was within his rights. I believe that a distant relative of mine stated it best, “When liberty dies in the hearts of men no constitution can bring it back.” Morality is not a civil right.

    In response to the hatred spewing from grumpajoesplace: I find immense fault with the logic of KILLING a doctor who you disagree with his actions, yet alone KILL in the name of morality. Slain in church, none the less… What God would be tolerant of that? This man had a family, and is there no moral objection to ending his life? Statements such as, “His murder was morally overdue.”, and “potential humans” and putting him in the category of Hitler, are irreverently ludicrous to say the least. I do not share your religious views though have full respect for your beliefs and the rights you have to your beliefs, but isn’t God supposed to be making the judgements here, not us? When did we humans become all knowing and all seeing? One’s heart should never be kept so tightly shut. Please put yourself in the position and desperation of the women who sought the doctors care. It’s so easy to close your mind off, to sit there, belly fat with your pompous views… when one has never been placed in such a situation.
