TALES FROM THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF SAN FRANCISCO
The bad boy of cable news, Bill O'Reilly, touched a raw nerve when he angrily told his substantial audience that as a result of their latest anti-American legislation, San Francisco deserved to be struck by rabid terrorists.
O'Reilly's anger was on display on national television for all to see after residents of San Francisco passed two ballot initiatives: one prohibited military recruiters from visiting schools, while the other banned citizen ownership of handguns. What really got the goat of the popular host of Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor," is the fact that in the midst of a war on terrorism, the denizens of the People's Republic of San Francisco view the US military and the Second Amendment as the enemy.
Since O'Reilly's televised comments, the founding mothers of the People's Republic of San Francisco or PRSF, are demanding Fox and Westwood One, a radio syndicate that carries O'Reilly's "Radio Factor," fire him. In essence, the PRSF have set their sights on the First Amendment by attempting to silence anyone who disparages their decidedly Stalinist worldview. And it's not just PRSF residents who want him canned, political leaders are on the forefront of an anti-O'Reilly campaign.
If San Francisco voters are intent on opposing military recruitment in their public schools and to ban citizens from being able to protect themselves from thugs with their handguns, then perhaps the federal government should cut off their funding, O'Reilly said. Then he gave his San Francisco viewers a piece of his mind:
"Fine. You want to be your own country? Go right ahead. And if Al-Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead."
And in textbook Stalinist style, the founding mothers of the PRSF, such as Chris Daly, a San Francisco city supervisor, turned the issue into O'Reilly's comments rather than about his attack on the US military, the Second Amendment, and now the First Amendment.
And the news media are doing their part to help their comrades. The propaganda ministers are parading teenagers in front of TV cameras to prove the hatred of the military comes from them. These kids, resembling Hitler's Youth, spout the words that have been drilled into them since they were knee-high to grasshoppers. The leaders of PRSF should be proud of their handiwork. Suddenly, the mainstream news people find wisdom proceeding from the mouths of teenagers, who don't even bathe regularly, let alone possess an independent thought process. While listening to these kids, I wanted them to turn around to see if they were carrying Mao's Red Book in their back pockets.
As far as San Francisco's gun ban, a look at the city's crime statistics shows that compared with national figures, PRSF has a violent crime rate 24% higher than the national average. They fare a bit better with property crimes with a rate 12% higher than the national average. While most of the United States is enjoying reductions in violent crime, the PRSF actually boasts an increase. In 2003, the city had 69 murders, while the most recent FBI report shows 88 murders. The city also had more aggravated assaults, as well.
In the Bizarro world of the PRSF, if you're witnessing higher murder rates, the best thing to do is disarm law-abiding citizens. This makes sense to these folks. Don't be surprised if in the future San Franciscanistas decide to pass a ballot initiative outlawing common sense. For instance, one of their heroes, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., globetrots in his private jet and rides around in his chauffeured limo while badgering people to cut down on fuel consumption. This make sense to the useful idiots in PRSF.
To be fair, there are other cities that wish to follow San Francisco's lead such as Boston, where cute little Maoists talk about our sons and daughters in the military as if they were Nazi storm troopers. And why not? The Democrat Party's establishment, in unguarded moments, spout the same anti-military, anti-American rhetoric backed by their cadre of propaganda spinmeisters in the news media. Did we forget Senator "Little" Dick Durbin's comments on the floor of the US Senate?
Actually, I have more respect for the citizens and government of San Francisco. What you see is what you get with those folks; unlike people such as Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, John Edwards and Howard Dean, who attempt to hide their true feelings and ideas from the American people in order to be elected.
