Bill O’Reilly, the Republicans Kevorkian?

So Bill O’Reilly, great defender of folks is officially on the immigration bandwagon. Hooray! Another conservative bites the dust. Although I guess that’s not accurate. O’Reilly has never described himself as a conservative. I’ll second that. He’s not. But even if he had after coming out in favor of “immigration reform” he could no longer wear that moniker.

His claim is that if Republicans don’t line up behind the RINOs (my words, not his) and support the bill, all will be lost and Hillary Clinton will waltz into the White House in 2016. Of course he mentioned nothing of the importance of the 2014 midterms.

His lecture was in response to an e-mail from one of his viewers who was against the bill and said that Congress should make no concessions. In effect they must reject the entire bill.

Well bully for you Nettie the e-mailer. I agree 100%. Bill did not agree. He said: “When Hillary Clinton is elected president in 2016, will you say the same thing, Nettie? Because that’s what’s gonna happen if the GOP does not begin to put forth smart solutions to the country’s problems.”

Well Mr. O’Reilly, I read the bill, or at least the long-winded summary and there’s not a single “smart solution” in it. Feel free to review my critique here.

At this point, as often happens, O’Reilly got on a roll. E-mailer Jim was his next victim. Foolish Jim had the temerity to suggest we merely adhere to and enforce current laws. Bill’s rebuttal: “So that means federal agents will begin forcibly rounding up millions of illegal people, entering their homes and removing men, women, and children, taking them to holding pens, where they will be awaiting deportation. Is that your vision, Jim? Because that’s what enforcing existing laws would mean.”

What an absurd statement Mr. O’Reilly. You just stated that if the government doesn’t care for a law or set of laws they just don’t have to enforce some. That is what you said, correct? Does that apply to us, or just the government? How ridiculous!

Of course now that I think of it, that’s what many administrations have done, the current being one of the worst offenders.

Whatever happened to the law is the law? There are many antidiscrimination laws on the books. If an employer won’t hire someone because he’s black or fire him for the same reason, would you be okay with that Bill? After all, the employer disagrees with the current law so why follow it.

As an aside, I would agree with the employer. It’s his business. He should be able to hire and fire whom he wants for whatever the reason.

But I’m sure Mr. O’Reilly meant that because current immigration law is “mean” it shouldn’t be enforced. I guess it’s all about being nice to the people that snuck into our country illegally.

No, actually it’s only about winning the next election. The ruination of America will be worth it to keep Hillary out of the White House.

Mr. O’Reilly, you and every other wrong thinking middle-of-the-roader will surely lose us the next election with cowardly acts like passing this bill.

O’Reilly stated: “For years I’ve called for a more secure southern border, you know that. And now it looks like the secure border is in reach. At least somewhat. So I hope this bill does become law.”

Has anyone actually read this bill? I reiterate, I’ve read what I needed of the bill and there is no more security in it! And how do you have somewhat of a secure border? Is that like being kind of pregnant?

It really sounds to me as if Republicans are so terrified of this issue they will pretend to see something that isn’t there.

And as I’ve stated before, we will not receive any more Hispanic votes due to its passage. In fact, if history repeats, as often happens, we’ll get less.

In 1980 Republicans received 38% of the Hispanic vote. In 1984 it was 37%. 1986 brought us mass amnesty. In 1988 Republicans garnered only 30% and in 1992 it was down to 29%. What a winning strategy and Bill wants a repeat.

Someone explain to me how the outcome will differ from post 1986, because I don’t see it. Putting aside the reality of the logistical and financial nightmare, politically, it’s suicide and like Jack Kevorkian, Bill is ready to assist.

  1. excellent article. this immigration “issue” is the most important one right now facing our country. if this bill goes through, we really are doomed. it should be rejected outright.just enforce the laws we already have.period.the only programs that should be in place as far as taxpayers dollars being spent is a great southern wall to be built (non-union jobs only,please),possibly more border agents ( let’s see how the new wall works 1st;we don’t need any more government workers,thank you very much),and yes,lastly,start deporting.aim for a million deportees a year.i truly believe this is all doable.
