Bill O’Reilly Is Just ‘Making Facts Up’ To Attack Westboro Baptist Church

All over the television networks, peeps been talkin’ ’bout that Westboro thing. “The bad guys win,” declared revisionist historian O’Reilly of the 8-1 Supreme Court decision that upheld the First Amendment as being awesome, albeit sometimes abused. Silly Samuel Alito, who O’Reilly agrees with, argues, “Mr. Snyder [the father of the slain Marine] wanted what is surely the right of any parent who experiences such an incalculable loss: to bury his son in peace.” Translation: Funeral rights, mentioned nowhere in any Constitution I’ve read, trump free speech rights. Even Snyder agrees: “We can no longer bury our dead in this country with dignity. What is this country becoming?” But the best line in this exchange comes from Megyn Kelly: “Do you like the First Amendment?” Clearly not ZOMG!

And then here’s Andrew Napolitano and Shep Smith — and, holding true to our theory, whenever you involve Smith in a conversation, reasonable debate can be had!

But bless Sarah Palin, the Fox News paid contributor, who tweeted about the decision: “Common sense & decency absent as wacko ‘church’ allowed hate msgs [email protected] soldiers’ funerals but we can’t invoke God’s name in public square.” Wait. You can’t? BRING BACK THE FIRST AMENDMENT SP! GO GIT IT GURL!
