O'Reilly offers up SF to al Qaeda

My favorite antagonist Kvatch brought this to my attention in the comments of my prior post about Moonbat City, aka San Francisco. From MSN:
"Listen, citizens of San Francisco, if you vote against military recruiting, you're not going to get another nickel in federal funds. Fine. You want to be your own country? Go right ahead," O'Reilly said, according to a transcript and audio posted by liberal media watchdog group Media Matters for America, and by the San Francisco Chronicle.

"And if al-Qaida 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," O'Reilly continued, referring to the 1933 San Francisco landmark that sits atop Telegraph Hill.
Despite the mention by Media Matters, a moonbat group that MSN generously calls a "liberal media watchdog group" (which means a group that thinks the media isn't nearly liberal enough), the story appears to be dead-on accurate.

Look, like O'Reilly, I'm exasperated with San Fran. If there was ever a nutty republic worthy of being its own country, it's certainly San Fran. Unlike O'Reilly, I don't want to see al Qaeda wipe them off the map!

If they were ever the target of a terrorist attack, it's certainly appropriate to wonder whether it's karma landing on their heads. It is not appropriate to wish it on them! As a matter of fact, it's just downright depraved!

If you dislike San Fran as much as I do, and if you think they're as loony as the rest of the nation does, there's a simple solution: don't live there. God knows I never will! Let them wallow in their moonbattery. However, not living there and wanting them dead are obviously two different things!

I know the left hates Fox News. Naturally, I do not. However, I will say that I will lose a measure of respect for them if they do not punish O'Reilly for this idiocy. Freedom of speech means he can say what he wants without fear of jailing. It does not mean that he's free to say what he wants and keep his job. Try telling your boss that you want him dead, maintain that it's free speech...and see how long you remain on his payroll!
