Your Daily Reason To Hate Bill O’Reilly: Dr. Tiller Edition

Oh, Bill O’Reilly, you’re such a colossal douche. And Salon is documenting this week’s evidence.

Tiller’s name first appeared on “The Factor” on Feb. 25, 2005. Since then, O’Reilly and his guest hosts have brought up the doctor on 28 more episodes, including as recently as April 27 of this year. Almost invariably, Tiller is described as “Tiller the Baby Killer.”

Tiller, O’Reilly likes to say, “destroys fetuses for just about any reason right up until the birth date for $5,000.” He’s guilty of “Nazi stuff,” said O’Reilly on June 8, 2005; a moral equivalent to NAMBLA and al-Qaida, he suggested on March 15, 2006. “This is the kind of stuff happened in Mao’s China, Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Soviet Union,” said O’Reilly on Nov. 9, 2006.

O’Reilly has also frequently linked Tiller to his longtime obsession, child molestation and rape. Because a young teenager who received an abortion from Tiller could, by definition, have been a victim of statutory rape, O’Reilly frequently suggested that the clinic was covering up for child rapists (rather than teenage boyfriends) by refusing to release records on the abortions performed.

The article goes on, chronicling O’Reilly’s characterization of Dr. Tiller as a murderer on the loose, who was willing to give a woman an abortion at any point in her pregnancy if she was merely anxious, headache-y, or bummed about being dumped by her boyfriend.

Salon does point out that the fuckface will undoubtedly, and un-self-consciously, decry Dr. Tiller’s murder as lawless vigilanteism.

So, if you’re keeping track: Fueling hate? Check. Taking the blame when it explodes? I wait with baited breath to see.
