Letter to Bill O'Reilly: JFK Truth versus 9/11 Truth; the Disparity
I submitted this e-mail to Bill O'Reilly. I want to credit Altruist, Dem Bruce Lee and JJJames for a few quotes of theirs I paraphrased from the comments section. ____________________________________________________________________________________
In 1990, when I was in sixth grade in Cincinnati, I first became drawn into watching news and following current events. Every single day after school and music lessons I would watch: News 5 at 5:30/6:00 with Jerry Springer. (Gotta love it, eh.) Then Tom Brokaw. Then, Inside Edition, with Bill O'Reilly. "We give you something to think about."
Boy, did I love watching you every single night before starting up on my math homework, Bill. Your charisma and flair for reporting passionately about con-artists, murderers and rapists, and topics of controversy truly made me a fan of yours. In those days you were 60 Minutes' only competition!
Back then, you were quite a hard-hitting reporter:
That was quite impressive, you were persuing some JFK conspiracy TRUTH! WOW!!!!!! Exactly what Rosie O'Donnell and millions of others are doing with 9/11, Bill.
(From this point forth, the sarcasm/verbal-irony button is on.)
---What angers me about your nutty "conspiracy theory" reporting here, Mr. O'Reilly, is how much it must upset the victims, I mean the Kennedy family, by insinuating that the government committed his murder. I know this country, Mr. O'Reilly, and this is the sort of thing that you don't come back from. Now, that's not a threat, I'm just saying.....
---Yea, you know “people in my town” don’t like all this conspiracy talk from you, Mr. O’Reilly.
---Bill O'Reilly, you probably think that the Holocaust never happened and Bigfoot in a UFO filmed the moon landing on a Hollywood studio in Area 51.
(OK, sarcasm/verbal-irony button off now.)
Bill, have I made my point?
Here's an uncomfortable thought for me though, Bill. Because I'm impressed with your JFK piece on Inside Edition, I now know that you do possess the capability of probing the toughest of the tough issues. Before today, I might have thought, "Bill might not believe in the JFK conspiracy because he can't psychologically face the possibility that his government could commit such a crime." Same with 9/11. Now I know you CAN AND HAVE successfully probed at least one major case of, as Alex Jones calls it, government-sponsored terror. So this leads me to ask: Why AREN'T you doing it with 9/11? And, even more importantly, why are you making a sincere effort to attack those who are? Is it money? Denial? Or, and this is the most uncomfortable question of all, do you harbor an underlying disdain for Arabs in general, and does the geopolitical climate allow you to vent that disdain? I pray I'm wrong there. Nonetheless, Mr. O'Reilly, after seeing your JFK piece, you owe your viewing audience an answer as to why your approach to 9/11 is the polar opposite.
9/11 was an inside job
