Each day another prominent Republican makes our day by recounting their bravery during a time of crisis. Rudy has made clear that he alone saved New York City from the horror of 9/11 and now
Bill O’Reilly wants America to praise him for the battle he waged in the city of Buenos Aires during the Falkland war. The Falkland Islands lie about a hundred miles off the shore of Argentine, and Bill never actually stepped foot on any of them, but he undoubtedly is a hero of that struggle. According to Bill, he watched police in the capital city confront mobs of protesters and they were fifing teargas at those who opposed the war. Naturally, this means being in Buenos Aires while what ‘FIGHTING’ there was occurred a hundred miles away places one in a “combat zone.” Of course, during World War II I was a child in New York
city where I confronted Nazi tanks and guns.
Bill is very upset at those who question his bravery. He yelled at a Emily Steel, a reporter, that she had better report his heroism or face the consequences. If she did not tell the truth about his heroism, “i’m coming a after you with everything I have. You can be certain it is a threat.” Some fight with guns, and Bill fights with bull shit. I suggest that Bill and Rudy form a firm that gives presentations on how to make money by recounting tales of being in a combat zone.
