    Default Bill O'Reilly says it's ok to bomb San Francisco.

    What an idiot!

    MSNBC
    Updated: 1:03 p.m. ET Nov. 11, 2005

    Does Bill O'Reilly have it in for the city by the bay?

    San Franciscans have been in an uproar this week over apparent comments by the host of Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor" that it was A-OK for terrorists to wipe the city off the map.

    At issue are comments from O'Reilly's Election Day broadcast on his syndicated Westwood One radio show about a San Francisco ballot measure opposing the presence of military recruiters in city schools.


    "Listen, citizens of San Francisco, if you vote against military recruiting, you're not going to get another nickel in federal funds. Fine. You want to be your own country? Go right ahead," O'Reilly said, according to a transcript and audio posted by liberal media watchdog group Media Matters for America, and by the San Francisco Chronicle.

    "And if al-Qaida comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead," O'Reilly continued, referring to the 1933 San Francisco landmark that sits atop Telegraph Hill.

    Adding to the buzz was the archived version of O'Reilly's Tuesday show, which omitted the incendiary comments, according to Bay Area TV station KNTV.


    City officials were not amused. "It sounds like he's on the same medication Rush Limbaugh is addicted to, and he should go see a therapist,'' Board of Supervisors President Aaron Peskin, whose district includes the tower, told the Chronicle.

    Neither O'Reilly nor Fox News have yet commented on the dust-up.

    'The big digit to the military'?
    As for the ballot measure, which urged local high schools and colleges to bar military recruiters from their campuses, it passed with 60 percent of San Franciscans in favor of it.

    The radio show was not the only time O'Reilly commented on the ballot proposition. On his Monday night "O'Reilly Factor," he tangled with Angela Alioto, the former president of the city's Board of Supervisors.

    "Why should the rest of the country protect your butt, with all due respect, OK, when it comes to the war on terror, if San Francisco is going to thumb your nose and give the big digit to the military? Why should ... why should we protect you from al-Qaida and terrorists if you're going to disrespect the military, by passing this ... even though it's symbolic ... this resolution?" he asked Alioto.

    Alioto briefly tripped up O'Reilly during her appearance, pointing out that he had conflated the military-recruitment measure with another measure to ban handguns. That measure also passed, 58 percent to 42 percent.

    He's pissy because they don't want recruiters at schools. That's all the article mentioned.

    It would be along the lines of soliciting, wouldn't it? And they don't have to allow solicitors on school property. So I don't see the problem.

    The government using public fucking schools to harrass and recruit people into their illegal war just smacks of evil.

    The military is usually asking for 'equal access' to match the access enjoyed by university recruiters. Schools not only let universities onto their campuses, they even sell or give away student information to them so that they can send kids mail shots or call them on the phone. Happened at my school, and I'm 100% certain we weren't the only ones. The military just wants what the universities have, and the fact that they're making a stink about it indicates to me that their recruitment figures are in the toilet due to the Iraq war. Isn't that what you want? Why are you complaining?

    I've seen recruiters around my campus a few times and I don't know if it's wide-spread or not, but these recruiters were assholes. They tried to recruit me once and I flat out told them I did'nt support the war. Next thing ya know they're saying "Oh so you don't care about this country?" to which I replied "I care about this country, but does you commander-in-cheif care about the troops?" and left them dumbfounded.

    I know that most recuriters are'nt like that, but still having them at public schools is a bit much. Scholarships with the army is alright I guess but don't try to come to a school and use persuasion to have them join. With that said, Oreilly can go dildo himself.

    When you guys say "public" schools, do you mean high schools
    or elementary/junior high?

    Recruiters came to my high school on career day back in the day
    and I didn't think anything of it. But they never came close to us
    until we were pushing 18 and close to making our own decisions.
    We never saw them in grade eight, for example; that would
    just be insidious.

    I meant high schools and colleges. I don't think they're allowed to go to middle or elementary schools.

    I know their recruitement numbers are in the toilet. Does that keep this situation from seeming creepy and coercive? A volunteer army, reduced to pretty much lying and bullying to meet its quota?

    I'm not sure uni's recruiting could be equated with the military recruiting. The chances of you being killed by a roadside bomb are alot slimmer when at uni.

    I don't like them recruiting on public school campuses, but it's difficult to find a legal justification for keeping them off when you're allowing universities access. Disagreeing with the war or thinking they're 'evil' isn't enough to satisfy the court system.
