Poor Mr. O’Reilly is confused.
I understand. It must be hard to maintain focus between making up historical tidbits for his novels and choking his wife. What the man completely fails to factor in to this equation is that the internet has made it virtually impossible to completely keep anything hidden for long. As the lies and hypocrisy bubble to the surface in the lives of those who claim the moral authority in the hard-right, the need to sit back and consider what we are observing becomes clear.
The internet is not making people “dumb”, Mr. O’Reilly; it’s quite the opposite, in fact. More people have more access to more information than ever before in history and the talking heads in the media just can’t stand it. Gone are the days when they could lecture the rest of us while keeping their own nasty secrets nicely hidden away. In this day and age, you put up or shut up.
Welcome to the world of an awakening population, Mr. O’Reilly.
Enjoy your own growing nightmare.
