Politics and its Discontents: But Are His Pants On Fire?

That is a question only Bill O’Reilly can answer, but given his veracity-challenged career, I would not his response at face value.

Pushed to the Left and Loving It: It’s High Time Canadians Started Listening to Bill O’Reilly at Fox News

The Conservative Movement, that has been gaining momentum since the 1960s, has made one of their missions, destroying progressive agencies; especially those that support the Welfare State.

In the U.S., they honed in on ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), that advocated for low- and moderate-income families.

Unbelievable. This from a man who specializes in ambush interviews, broadcasting them edited without advising his audience.

The Church Of Mothra - Home Of The Breakfast Mojito! ©: Bill O’Reilly The Impaler Vs. Fictional European History

On today’s Billoreilly.com, Bill shows off his historical knowledge (which is a momentary break from his utter mangling of current events) by comparing Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin to Vlad Tepeş, AKA Vlad The Impaler, AKA Dracula.

Bram Stoker based the character of Dracula on the historical Vlad, who was notorious for his cruelty. Some examples:

-Vlad The Impaler got his nickname from his habit of impaling his enemies… men, women, children… basically anyone who pissed him off. Among other atrocities, Vlad was noted for “The Forest Of The Impaled,” which consisted of thousands of impaled Turkish soldiers lining the roadways. This was done to scare off the Ottoman Empire. You know… Muslims. He was also once greeted by three Turkish diplomats, who refused to remove their fezzes at Vlad’s court (not doing so being a cultural sign of respect for Muslims at the time). So The Impaler had their fezzes nailed onto their heads and sent the Turks home.

-Vlad also allegedly invited hundreds of the poor and indigent to a great feast. Vlad nailed the doors of the hall shut once it was full and burned the place down. Furthermore, in his capital city, Târgovişte, there was a fountain with a solid gold cup that anyone could drink from… and supposedly never got stolen, because Vlad was so tough on crime.

Dracula, was merely defending his land and way of life from Moslems and freeloaders. Vladimir Putin, on the other hand, is a very wealthy man in a position of power, who has a fondness for using force and having his enemies killed, often by sneaky and unusual assassination techniques.

Get your metaphors right, Bill. Vladimir Putin isn’t “Vlad The Impaler”… he’s a James Bond villain.

Based on foreign and domestic policy, Vlad The Impaler was obviously a neocon.
