Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Compares Gays to Al-Qaeda Terrorists
June 3, 2010
(ChattahBox)—Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly doesn’t like the idea of gays gobbling up McDonald’s hamburgers, just like straight folks. When discussing a new touching gay-themed McDonald’s commercial airing in France, O’Reilly suggested that straight customers watching the ad would lose their appetite. And when his guest, Fox News anchor Jane Skinner explained to O’Reilly that the ad was one of a series of the company’s “come as you are” campaign featuring consumers from all walks of life, O’Reilly asked: Do they have an al-Qaeda ad? Get it? Gays, radical Islamic terrorists— same thing.
“Does that make you hungry to watch that? Straight people watch it too,” said O’Reilly after watching the ad of a male French teenager speaking to his love interest on his cell phone, while sitting in a McDonald’s restaurant.
O’Reilly condemned the tone of the ad, declaring the United States, unlike those commie Frenchies, would never air such a gay ad:
“OK, they want to make a political statement selling burgers. They are entitled to it. It would never run in the USA. They would never do that.”
O’Reilly is right unfortunately. It’s unlikely that such an ad would air in America. And it’s a shame.
According to homophobes, like Bill O’Reilly being gay is as insidious as being a terrorist. After asking, “Do they have an al-Qaeda ad?” You know, come as you are? You know?” O’Reilly and Skinner both snickered.
