Bill O'Reilly SLAMS Supreme Court Rulings, John Roberts in Fox News Rant

by at . Comments

Bill O'Reilly went off on a rant against the Supreme Court's rulings on gay marriage last night, ending in a shouting match with two Fox News analysts.

O'Reilly eviscerated the court, and specifically Chief Justice John Roberts, for the rulings that struck down DOMA and vacated Proposition 8 in California.

His reasoning? "The Supreme Court has morphed into a political organization, not a body that seeks to uphold the Constitution," said the TV personality.

O'Reilly added that he did not aim to discriminate against gays or same-sex marriage, but that "the gay marriage issue should be decided by each state."

Analyst Juan Williams incurred his wrath by arguing that Roberts "made a decision based on what he thought was in the political best interest of the court."

O'Reilly, who likened the decisions to 2012's upholding of Obamacare, gave a table-banging response: "But that's not his job! That's not his job, Juan!"

Bill's beef appears to be with the SCOTUS itself, rather than the issue of gay marriage, though he doesn't seem to think either ruling was right in any case.

I just love these catch phrases! O'Reilly SLAAAAAAAMS the SC ruling! WOW! Was that like a WWF slam by HULK HOGAN? Maybe it was just a disagreement in states controlling votes on Gay Marriage! Still Juan ( I will play the race card) Williams was still able (after the slam) to Incure the wrath? The wrath huh? Just how in the f*ck do you Incure a wrath? Is that even physically possible? If so was Bill down for the 8 count? A shouting match? Ohh my goodnes are we on the verge of a educated conversation only to be found on Fox News and only Fox News! Maybe someone could do a piece on Al Sharpton on why he and MSNBC refuses to make a commit on Trayvon using the racist term CREEPY CRACKER?

Rant? Where or how do you see this as a RANT? I sat and watched the whole thing! He was trying to understand how in the Hell the SC could overturn what was a vote by the people of California! What I want to know is why the hell let them vote if you are going to overturn it in the end! Freaking gays are so damn sensitive as we all know! Obama somehow saw the light- it was a phenomenon at the least or was it a becon of light perhaps the parting of the seas and he saw that gay marriage was okay............ Just in time for the Election! What are the chances! This country is so Fu*ked up. It's like a NBA referee trying to make up for a call he knew he blew earlier. Then he can't remember who he owes and what!

Like it or not, MOST of the legal benefits and protections of marriage are bestowed by the FEDERAL government. The federal government takes a great deal of interest in married couples for the purposes of tax law and Social Security, for example. Therefore it simply wouldn't do for a Gay couple that is legally married in Iowa to have their marriage forcibly annulled if they relocate south to Missouri. This is why marriage equality for Gay couples cannot be decided in a piecemeal, state-by-state basis. Bill O'Reilly is simply wrong.
