I love it when right wing blowhards just come out and admit their admiration for despotism. And by “love it” I mean “deserve a cockpunch for.”
O’REILLY: So because — what you have here now is a tipping point in history. A tipping point in history. So you have to win the Iraq situation. Now, to me, they’re not fighting it hard enough. See, if I’m president, I’ve got probably another 50-60,000 with orders to shoot on sight anybody violating curfews. Shoot ’em on sight. That’s me. President O’Reilly, curfew in Ramadi, 7 o’clock at night. You’re on the street, you’re dead. I shoot you right between the eyes. OK?
That’s how I’d run that country — just like Saddam ran it. Saddam didn’t have explosions. He didn’t have bombers, did he? Because if you got out of line, you’re dead.
But of course, if you didn’t support the Iraq war, you hated
freedom Freedom and America. Because Saddam was BAD! Bad bad bad!
… But boy he really kept those trains running on time, didn’t he?
