Freedom of Uh... What Now?

I wondered how long it was going to take. Finally, Bill O'Reilly has taken it to the next level and officially declared his own personal jihad on the First Amendment.

And when he [Durbin] went out there, his intent was to whip up the American public against the Bush detainee policy. That's what his intent was. His intent wasn't to undermine the war effort, because he never even thought about it. He never even thought about it. But by not thinking about it, he made an egregious mistake because you must know the difference between dissent from the Iraq war and the war on terror and undermining it. And any American that undermines that war, with our soldiers in the field, or undermines the war on terror, with 3,000 dead on 9-11, is a traitor.

Everybody got it? Dissent, fine; undermining, you're a traitor. Got it? So, all those clowns over at the liberal radio network, we could incarcerate them immediately. Will you have that done, please? Send over the FBI and just put them in chains, because they, you know, they're undermining everything and they don't care, couldn't care less.
Bill O'Reilly would prefer that everything Republicans say is immediately erased once they change their minds as easily as changing from being at war with Eastasia to being at war with Eurasia. Unfortunately for Billy, they haven't quite perfected the Memory Hole just yet. Daily Kos has compiled a list of GOP anti-war comments during the Kosovo conflict. I'd ask O'Reilly to read the list and tell us which of the statements would be forbidden in his world, and which of these Republican leaders should go to jail and presumably be executed.
