Speaking of local fascism...

Bill O'Reilly's really been on a Gestapo kick of late:

From the October 28 broadcast of Westwood One's The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly:

CALLER: Bill, this is the time of war. She [Plame] was a WMD analyst. She wasn't monitoring troop movements in India or something like that. She was working on this country's most pressing concern. This is an important issue, and I got one point about the media. If you want true, no-spin facts about this case, you can't do better than mediamatters.com.

O'REILLY: Ah! All right. Anyway, we get another nut on the air. That's the worst part of doing this. Ninety percent of the callers are good, and then you get nuts. Now, we should go to their house. We should all go because I can get their addresses when they call in. We can trace them back, and we should all go over and surprise them.

From the June 20 broadcast of Westwood One's The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly:

O'REILLY: And when he [Durbin] went out there, his intent was to whip up the American public against the Bush detainee policy. That's what his intent was. His intent wasn't to undermine the war effort, because he never even thought about it. He never even thought about it. But by not thinking about it, he made an egregious mistake because you must know the difference between dissent from the Iraq war and the war on terror and undermining it. And any American that undermines that war, with our soldiers in the field, or undermines the war on terror, with 3,000 dead on 9-11, is a traitor.

Everybody got it? Dissent, fine; undermining, you're a traitor. Got it? So, all those clowns over at the liberal radio network, we could incarcerate them immediately. Will you have that done, please? Send over the FBI and just put them in chains, because they, you know, they're undermining everything and they don't care, couldn't care less.

And then there's O'Reilly's penchant for cutting off, shouting down, belittling and bullying any guest who so much as gives voice to any opinion he doesn't like (which is basically anyone who disagrees with him in the slightest).
