When the people on the Left go too far, I end up defending people I never thought I would. I disagreed with President Bush on some issues, but the level of attacks (even today) makes me want to stand by him. The attacks on Rush made me ask: Did the Democrats ever support President Bush? (The answer is NO, thus proving Rush right.) And I stand by Rush.
Now, I am defending Bill O'Reilly, a guy I felt very neutral about, until this:
The story I saw was Mr. O'Reilly was offered a chance to speak at a fundraiser for the Alexa Foundation (I linked to it, please donate), a foundation to help Rape victims through the Court system.
A Blogger at Think Progress attacked Mr. O'Reilly and with help from one of the Nazgul's, Keith Olbermann, generated a mob to protest at the Fundraiser. Mr. O'Reilly then brought his crew to ask the Blogger at Think Progress: Why attack a man trying to raise funds for a Foundation to help rape victims?
The Blogger then ran to Keith Olbermann, etc. et. al. If the Left really wanted to win this battle, Think Progress and Keith Olbermann should have donated, say $5 million dollars so that Mr. O'Reilly would not speak, instead, they attacked a charity because of partisan interests. No matter how much I hate Keith Olbermann and the Left, I would not attack them there.
This was a level I though the Left would not travel. Wrong again.
Since I just finished a BSG post, I want to ask any or all Olbermann supporters one question, please send proof of your statements should you answer it:
Has Keith Olbermann spoke Pro Bono to a charity or given to a Non-political charity over the years? If so, which ones? And no, the statement of giving to charity during the Presidential race is bogus, to me, that is grandstanding.
Has Keith Olbermann given without publicity?
If not Mr. Olbermann, how dare you?
