In which Hanlon bows down to Bill O’Reilly

I am in no way being sarcastic.

So I caught some of Ellen, and discovered there was a big ol’ kerfuffle with her and JC Penny, with some group called One Million Moms complaining and raising a stink that a company would allow a lesbian to represent them. Ellen fought back, and who came to her defense? Bill O Motherfucking Reilly. He tears into this woman, and delivers the kind of quote that would cause howls of support if it were Rachel Maddow saying it:

If you remember with the McCarthy era of the 1950s and they were trying to hunt down communist sympathizers and not let them work and put them on a blacklist…what is the difference between the McCarthy era of the ’50s and the Million Moms saying, ‘Hey, JCPenny and all you other stores, don’t you hire gay people. Don’t you dare.’ What’s the difference?

I genuinely felt moved by it. No snark, no backhanded compliments. Just a phenomenal moment from a man I normally want to smack with a shovel. Watch the video. It’s worth it.
