A certain Ramsey from Jackson Mississippi sent this bitch an email asking for my thoughts on yesterday’s blow-up on The View.
Confession – I don’t watch The View, but I caught coverage of Bill O’Reilly's absolute statements about Muslims being terrorists followed by Whoopi and Joy Behar walking off set.
All right Ramsey, here you go!
Shark-Fu’s first thought on the blow-up…
I forgot Bill O’Reilly even existed.
I suspect he’s aware that folks have forgotten his ass exists, which is probably why he took a discussion of another mosque being built in Manhattan where he took it. Getting attention for saying incendiary shit is what O’Reilly does and, by supplying a platform, The View played right into his hands. But fuck it – The View got attention and O’Reilly got attention...so fuck the fact that this public display of anti-Muslim rhetoric continues a shameful trend of labeling all Muslims terrorists.
Shark-Fu’s second thought on the blow-up…
Maybe O’Reilly has stage fright.
I know there are some hockey players who get over a case of the nerves by jumping the boards and checking the shit out of someone during their first shift of the game.
Mayhap getting his ig'nance on is O’Reilly’s coping mechanism.
He’s sitting there in a cold sweat, hands shaking a bit, and wondering what he can do to calm down…suddenly they’re all talking about the proposal to build another mosque in Manhattan near the site of the September 11 attack in NYC and O’Reilly sees his opportunity! So he tosses out some shit about how Muslims attacked America...knowing the designated liberals would jump on that absolute statement. And they did.
Thus O’Reilly was able to get his bluster on…voices were raised followed by that walk-off stuff…and his nerves probably settled down enough for him to circle back to a bullshit half-ass apology that isn’t getting covered as much as the initial accusation painting all Muslims as terrorists.
Or...O'Reilly could just be a publicity hungry ass trying to make a come back now that Beck has taken his spot on the John Birch Society Kickball Team.
Shark-Fu’s final thought on the blow-up on The View…
Shit like this is exactly why I don’t watch The View.
I really can't stand sound-bite debates set up by formula casting…and a group of women with a basic understanding of the topic under discussion who are willing to engage in intellectually lazy absolute statement making “discussions” makes this bitch itch.
When they go at each other while using the perception and reputation of all Muslims as their weapon of choice, they pretty much make the case for why friends don’t let friends debate while ignorant.
Thanks for asking!
