It’s On: Wingnut Radio Host Says Bill O’Reilly’s Marriage Equality Remarks Are a “Hanging Offense”

The problem with the rebranding scam
Wingnuts • Views: 28,515

Some of the right wing demagogues on Fox News seem to be trying to play along with the “Republican rebranding” charade; Bill O’Reilly, for example, who recently said he doesn’t really have a strong opinion on marriage equality (although he hasn’t been shy in the past about his aversion to it).

The problem with trying to sell the rebranding clunker to the public is the prevalence of another breed of right wing demagogue, the kind who aren’t just cavemen, they’re loud and proud to be Neanderthal throwbacks. Cavemen like talk radio host Steve Deace, who is quite upset with Bill O. Wants to see him hanged, in fact.

Deace: I’ve got a bee in my bonnet big time and it’s Bill O’Reilly at Fox News. I don’t like charlatans, I don’t like frauds; give me Rachel Maddow, at least she’s honest. But when you are trying to profit off of the very people you are betraying and you have tried to condescend them and patronize them for years and then at the moment they probably need you to return the favor of all the money they made you over the last fifteen years the most, you stab them in the back, throw them under the bus and use the enemy’s own language against them. To me that’s a hanging offense; that is a hanging offense.

[…]

With this issue there are no good arguments for it because the argument essentially boils down to, ‘because I want it.’ It’s essentially a tantrum; it’s policy by desire. ‘Because I want it.’ It’s a child throwing a hissy-fit, tantrum in Wal-Mart because mom bought me the regular sized M&Ms and not the king-sized that I demanded. As Ryan T. Anderson of the Heritage Foundation pointed out on CNN this week that just drove the reporter into a meltdown, ‘no one is in jail for having consensual homosexual sex with another adult, what you’re trying to do is impose your narrow definition of what this means and therefore what it means for free speech and religious liberty on everybody else.’ So they throughout all these clichés and they are so easy to debunk. One of my favorites is, ‘well there’s homosexuality in nature.’ There’s also the licking of one’s own genitals, the flinging of one’s own feces and the eating of live prey and then puking it up to feed your offspring in nature too.
