The gents squared off on Jay Leno’s gay face scandal, an offense which O’Reilly simply can’t comprehend. The Fox News man goes on to lament the death of diverse comedy:
It looks to me in America that you can’t ever make fun of any minority group. Ever. In any way. Anymore. In this country. I think that’s where we are really. You can make fun of white Christian men. You can make fun of, famous people. But if you make fun of a minority, any minority…
A national tragedy, indeed.
O’Reilly also insists that he would never make fun of a social group. He will, however, fabricate stories about lesbian gangs, decry “gay apartheid,” and generally spread gay panic, all of which are far more incendiary than Jay Leno’s gag.
