shut up, Shut Up, SHUT UP...

Naw, not really... After all, this is the United States of America: it's a free country and one of those guaranteed freedoms is for all to speak freely, no matter how utterly reprehensible and dimwitted the speaker may be.

As much as I do wish Bill O'Lielly would take his own advice sometimes and just shut the hell up, he's free to express his vapidly stupid hatefilled tripe far and wide (and so he does).

Crooks and Liars has the video; Think Progress has the post and those gullible enough to buy into this despicable creature's verbal garbage have my deepest concern.

We need to get this straight people, right here and right now: The United States of America is not above the laws of human decency. The ends DO NOT justify the means. PERIOD! The United States of America is better than that. This country was created to uphold little things like justice, human rights and protection of civil liberties. When we sink to the level of that which we despise, we become that and more.

We become the worst kind of monster, a wolf in sheep's clothing and the ultimate hypocrisy. We become the oppressor and not the protector of those being oppressed. We lose credibility with the world and along with that we lose their trust; our ideals become hollow and empty.

That is not what most Americans want our country to become; furthermore, it endangers our own soldiers and makes their jobs that much harder. That is not what our troops want. It's not in their best interest, or in America's best interest, let alone the world's best interest.
