"The far left is emboldened now that Barack Obama has been elected president
Bill O'Reilly hates us and the feeling is mutual
San Franciscans famously fought back against Bill O'Reilly - the conservative Fox news anchor who really, really hates our city - when he said back in 2005 that the U.S. military shouldn't defend San Francisco in case of a terrorist attack. "You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead," he said.
Everybody from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to Supervisor Chris Daly railed at O'Reilly, calling his comments outrageous.
Not content to leave well enough alone, O'Reilly has now sent an underling to the city to make a documentary to show where, supposedly, the politics of President-elect Barack Obama will take the country.
"The far left is emboldened now that Barack Obama has been elected president, and nowhere is the radical left government more on display than in the city of San Francisco," O'Reilly said in introducing the segment.
The minutes-long documentary goes on to show homeless people lounging in the parks, pot smokers, a transgendered prostitute, strippers -- and, well, that's about it. Jesse Watters, the producer, told O'Reilly he felt like he was in one big Grateful Dead concert filled with "vagabonds, street kids, runaways, your sixties hippie retreads."
O'Reilly agreed, noting every city has its Tenderloin and that North Beach is our Tenderloin. Actually, the Tenderloin is our Tenderloin. And he added the city's parks are very dangerous. "You wouldn't go to the Presidio at night," he said very earnestly. You never know what might be lurking amidst those eucalyptus trees! snip
