Creepy Bill O’Reilly oozes slime at two college co-eds (re: 9/11 Reichstag Fire)

By Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

It is becoming increasingly clear that roughly half the women in America, as well as a significant proportion of our household pets, have been sexually harassed by Bill O’Reilly, who will soon be scrubbed from the Fox lineup with a wire louffah.

So it’s time for a pre-emptive in memoriam. As we wait for Fox to throw him in the hole and shovel on the dirt, let us share our not-so-fond memories of this despicable American icon of sleaze and depravity. Here is my story (short version):

In June 2006, local neocon-Republican operators Jessica McBride and Steve Nass (presumably acting at the behest of Karl Rove and Lynn Cheney) launched what instantly became a carefully-orchestrated-and-choreographed assault by the entire Wisconsin Republican Party on the academic freedom of yours truly. They called on the University to fire me rather than allow me to teach Islamic Studies 101 that fall. Why? Because one week of my 16-week syllabus focused on the “war on terror.” And one of the several perspectives I planned to include was the Muslim-majority perspective – represented by Nafeez  Ahmed – holding that the official story of 9/11 is questionable at best.

The University investigated and found that my record of teaching and scholarship was impeccable, and my proposed syllabus was excellent and completely non-problematic. So they couldn’t fire me. But the neocon-fueled media firestorm refused to subside.

The day after I duked it out with Sean Hannity on Fox, University of Wisconsin Provost Patrick Farrell called me and begged me to stay out of the media limelight. After some back and forth, I promised him I would stay away from Fox News until the semester was over.

So when Bill O’Reilly’s booker started calling, I repeatedly declined to appear on the O’Reilly Factor.

This apparently pissed O’Reilly off to no end. The next thing you know, O’Reilly was publicly wishing that I be found “floating down towards the harbor”:

This guy would have been gone at Boston University, my alma mater, in a heartbeat. The Chancellor there, John Silber, this guy would be, you know, in the Charles River floating down towards the harbor.” -Bill O’Reilly

Then a few months later, after the semester had started (and my class had filled with 175 students instead of the usual 35) O’Reilly invited one of my students, along with an Ann Coulter-ish-looking member of the U.W. Young Republicans, on his show. My student did very well. Unlike O’Reilly, she understood the concept of academic freedom. But O’Reilly smarmily and condescendingly tried to humiliate her, revealing himself, in the process, as the total a*hole he is.

O’Reilly’s talking point (assigned by Karl Rove?) was that poor, innocent students like these should not be trusted around a dangerous guy like me – a radical professor dedicated to corrupting the youth of Athens.

But wait a minute – which one of us shouldn’t be trusted around “innocent young people”?  I was just doing my job: teaching young people the sometimes dangerous task of critical thinking; whereas O’Reilly has spent his life as a sociopathic predator, grabbing as much as he can for himself while lying, scamming, and hoodwinking those around him. He has worked overtime to con the American people, dumb them down, and kill their souls as well as their intellects. He belongs in a prison cell, not on television.

At the end of the semester, I finally did appear on O’Reilly’s show.

    the best part of the video is when slime-bag bill says “hold it, Hold it..and Kevin keeps right on talking.

    Most people become quiet when bill yells for them to be still, never understand why they back down.

    Bill getting fired made my day in the twisted evil world, but getting 25 million a year is disgusting, so why is anyone watching any of these idiots who make that much money?

    Dear Doctor Kevin Barrett,

    You have taught many more people as a result of what has happend and God’s hand moves in mysterious ways. As a result of your Vocation to teaching, possibly millions of people have learned the Truth.

    Meantime the slimeball O’Reilly has got his come uppence.

    Your sincerely,

    Chris paul.

    Fox to O’Really: “You’re Fired!” Next: Trump & AJ look in the mirror — and say the same thing… ;-).

      Wonder what Bill is going to do next? Maybe get a job at MSNBC.
      Keith Oberman did a great take down of O’Reilly after big mouth Bill’s utterly tasteless attack on George Carlin just after his death.
      Bill O’Reilly….the worst person in the world!

    Slime ball O’reilly needs to get dragged down the street behind a rusty old pickup. A true intellectual dwarf if there ever was one but a favorite for the mindless idiots, xtian nutballs and every other knuckle dragging , mouth breathing redneck in America.
    He and Hannity are two of a kind. Together they have the collective intellect of a toad.
    I get a laugh when Keith Oberman destroys that slob, especially after George Carlin’s death and oreilly as usual acted out the usual caveman response.
    However as the First Amendment allows people or a least certain people to speak freely, he has, for the moment, protection.

      He is free to spew whatever rubbish from that putrid little brain and embarrass not only himself but America to the rest of the world. Is it any wonder so many people in the rest of the civilized world consider America to be a land of mindless morons.
      Dangerous ones at that.

    this takes me down memory lane. I had just gotten done watching the ashosle oreilly and his ilk at fox sabotage Dr Paul’s campaign about a year prior. on this rare night, I must have been watching fox on a truckstop tv and the ashosle oreilly had on a well credentialed phd to speak about 9/11. in typical form, the ashosle oreilly introduced his guest as a maniacal nutjob to his vast audience of idiocy. naturally, I knew that anything coming from the ashosle oreilly’s mouth was a lie, so that night I checked out some 9/11 truther videos for the first time… and most of my life perspectives have been turned on their heads since then.

    I hope the ashosle oreilly gracefully rides off into the retirement sunset, never to be seen or heard from ever again.
