Friedman and O'Reilly dance for Bush

The White House has a new media dream team. FAIR reports on Tom Friedman and Bill O'Reilly, who do a little pas de deux for Bush and call for the suppression of dissent.

In support of the newly renamed Eternal Struggle against Violent Extremism, Friedman calls us one step below terrorists and calls for the creation of a government blacklist. O'Reilly takes it a step further and calls for the jailing of anyone who dares suggest there is a nexus between our current foreign policy and the rise in worldwide terrorism.

According to these guys, we're at war and we're going to bring freedom and democracy to the "heathens" if we have to kill every last one of them to do it. In their minds, any calls for reasoned responses, diplomacy or understanding of other cultures is tantamount to treason.

You think they made that up themselves, or do you think Rove wrote that stuff for them?

A 'blacklist',huh? I was on the
House of UnAmerikan Activities list in the Sixties. I got on it by writing articles that were anti-government for underground papers. It's relatively painless to be blacklisted by these fools. When they pick you up on a bum rap so the Feds can grill you, just act like your going to co-operate with them, bum a cigarette then tell them two things: Jack and shit. Let them figure out which is which. 'Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.'
