If this schmuck is going to lash out at critics for having the temerity to use their First Amendment rights, he ought to at least be cognizant of his own recent history. Just two weeks ago he declared the term “illegal alien” forbidden, saying it was like using the word negro.
“You can never use the expression ‘illegal alien’ again,” the radio host said to his colleague Bill O’Reilly. “It is a pejorative. It’s like saying ‘negro’ or ‘homosexual.’ It is a loaded term that doesn’t accurately describe.”
“Why don’t you just give me a list of things I can say?” O’Reilly pushed back.
“Illegal aliens” and “Bible thumping” are two things you cannot say, Rivera quipped in reference to his Fox’s colleague’s controversial remarks about the religious opponents of gay marriage.
“I’m not giving into this stuff. You’re crazy,” O’Reilly replied. “If somebody’s in here and breaks our immigration laws, they’re an illegal alien.”
“They’re not an illegal alien,” the host concluded. “They’re an undocumented immigrant, give them some slack.”
So after acting like the thought police, some might argue in a “Taliban-ish” fashion, what does this moron do when Twitter users take umbrage with calling the Boston bombers “homegrown” terrorists? Why, he has a hissy-fit.
On Sunday he sent a shout-out to his “Muslim brothers and sisters”:
We had no idea he was a Muslim. So when Twitter users took offense, he lashed out angrily:
So while he’s intolerant of anyone correctly using the term illegal alien, you are forbidden from castigating him for showing solidarity with his so-called Muslim brothers and sisters. If only these lefties understood tolerance goes both ways.
Yet as we know, it’s a one-way street with the left. They preach tolerance, yet are the most intolerant people on earth. Taliban-ish, you might say.
Poor Geraldo did not have a good night:
Oh, and if you goof on Geraldo and call him Jerry Rivers, well, that’s raaaaacist!
No tolerance, and no sense of humor. What a dick.
