WATCH! Bill O'Reilly Attacks Jennifer Aniston: She's 'Destructive To Our Society!' It's His Most INSANE Statement Yet!

Wed, August 11, 2010 9:42am EDT by 33 Comments

Bill is seriously hating on Jen! Do YOU agree with his nonsensical argument?

I’m not going to lie — I love watching The O’Reilly Factor. It’s where I get my nightly dose of crazy. But even I was shocked at Bill O’Reilly‘s latest insane rant, in which he accuses Jennifer Aniston of being “destructive to our society” because she said modern women don’t need men in order to have children. He goes on to say that hard-working fathers in the United States are “underemphasized” and “under-appreciated,” which he then blames on “people like Jennifer Aniston.”

Talk about taking a small statement and blowing it WAY out of proportion! (Seriously, Bill, that’s our job.) Single women have been visiting fertility specialists to get pregnant for YEARS, and one comment from Jen isn’t going to destroy the fabric of our society. At least correspondant Margaret Hoover attempts to argue with Bill’s point — because we all know how well that normally goes.

Also, just a side note: Does Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson actually say Jen has “never been married” without catching her own mistake? Come on, now.

It sounds to me that Mr. Bill is just sour that women DON’T need a man to raise a kid. Why not promote single motherhood? Why not single parenthood? Yes, it’s nice to have two parents, but as a daughter of a single mother, I came out just fine. It’s tough, but not any tougher than a “whole” family. Please! I’ve never wanted for anything; neither did my younger brother. It’s a weak man who makes a stiff comment such as that. Families come in all shapes and sizes. Give me a break, Bill, and, please, practice what your momma taught. If you can’t say anything at all, shut your trap.

Nice way to lead people with the headline. My guess is no one has ever accused you of being fair and impartial, have they? If that’s all you think you can ever be, that’s your choice.

Who are you to say 4.5 billion years of evolution is wrong? Or that God’s plan is wrong? Or that 5000 years of civilization are wrong? Whether you believe in Evolution or Creation or something in between, hasn’t it become painfully clear yet that when we try to usurp the sex-roles we were born into that only chaos results?

And why is it that only women are allowed out of their little box? Why can’t men transcend? Maybe we’re tired of carrying the burden and paying for female “liberation” with our ever-deeper enslavement.

The rules were made for a reason. Don’t break them without understanding why they were made. This isn’t a friendly game of chess you’re breaking, this is people’s lives.

Ask any kid if they would rather have a single mother or a mother and father… Get smart ladies! We decide to have sex or not, to use birth control or not, to be married before having children or not. We have not been so smart, have we?? It is much better to have steady relationship ie; marriage before having children. WHEN did this become an odd concept?? wow…….

I guess I’m the only one who’s disgusted by IVF. Maybe if you 40-something mommas didn’t screw around with mother nature so much–you know, birth control, multiple sex partners, diseases, poor diet–you wouldn’t have to resort to weird science to manufacture your spoiled offspring. Anyone I’ve ever known who’s done it has either ended up so highly in debt that it broke up their marriage, the woman was OBSESSED with getting preggers and completely spoiled their ‘miracle’ or they had the baby as a statement. Do what you want, but don’t knock the rest of us who believe that a man and a woman create a baby, not a petri dish and highly paid doctors.

First of all – Bill O’Reilly is an asshole.

Second – Who apointend him as Guardian of American Speech?

Third – I wonder why he isn’t attacking Sara Palin’s Daughter’s immorality for having a child out of wedlock.

Anyone who gives this moron ANY credence, is as nuts as he is.

She only meant that single mothers can raise perfectly happy, healthy children. Even if kids from single parent homes are more likely to have problems when older, I think you’ll find that’s a result of poverty, not single parenting.

Don’t forget, kids raised with two parents have turned out to be serial killers, and kids raised by one parent have turned out to be president.

I have to say, it seems to me that all people like Bill O want to do is force young women into loveless or abusive marriages. When you think, that’s the logical conclusion of his statements.

The fact of the matter is that children who grow up in single parent households (usually single mothers ~90% of the time) are at increased risk of drug abuse, gangs, suicide, early pregnancy, more prone to violence, being victims of violence and a host of other social issues. Federal programs like Title IVd of the Social Securities Act and Violence Against Woman’s Act(VAWA, due to its lack of gender neutrality) make it extremely easy to throw a fit parent (usually the father ~90% of the time) out of the family. These programs offer financial benefits for states to remove a fit parent, and bend over backwards to ensure the woman “victim” is taken care of by the American Taxpayers. Jenifer Aniston’s comments make her look like an idiot, but then most of the probate court judges in this country share the same opinion and are backed up by federal statues like Title IV d, and VAWA.

Oh yeah its Jennifer Aniston thats destroying our society. Or maybe its the fact that a US Military judge has now said its OK to threaten someone with rape to try and get a confession. Lets worry about the police state our country is turning into and less about what Jennifer Aniston thinks.

i dont see anywhere in this interview where he literally says “YES! She’s single-handedly destroying marriage! And family! AND RELIGION!” and i do agree with him. celebrities with influence over a large number of people need to be more wary of the statements they make and its impact on viewers.

Bill is RIGHT

Posted at 4:17 AM on August 12, 2010  

I hate agreeing with Bill, but he’s right. She said, “women don’t need to fiddle with men to have kids.” UMMMM, excuse me? Fiddle with men? So, she’s saying go ahead and have those kids. Forget the guy. He’s not that important. In her mind, it’s a lifestyle choice FOR HER. But what about the kid? Wouldn’t it be good for the kid to have two parents rather than one tired, overstressed, and overworked parent? What if money is an issue? Wouldn’t two parents be better in that case too? Most women who are single these days are NOT so by choice. It’s one thing when your partner turns out to be nasty, negligent or a bad parent, and you are forced to go it alone. But it’s quite another to make the choice to go it alone. I don’t think it’s a good idea unless you have money like she does to hire a whole bunch of nannies, help, relatives, etc. Then, the mother can make sure there’s good role models around. Most women can’t afford that. I think Jen is completely in the wrong here. But no one should take parenting advice from her anyways. That’s like taking driving advice from a blind person.

i just watched a 10 minute video on fathers returning from overseas and surprising their children. People who think children don’t need fathers are morons. Then these poor kids are exposed to play daddys and step daddys and unfortunately these so-called men are the ones that abuse these poor kids. Boys who grow up without dads are pretty messed up and girls are deprived of being “daddys little girl”. In no way, shape or form is this a good environment for children. O’Reilly is spot on and he is always looking out for kids – exposing judges who let molesters get away it and fighting for Jessica’s Law to be passed in all 50 states. Not many people stand up for kids. If you’re criticizing his show you’re not watching it – you’re listening to the other cable news networks who are jealous because his show has been the #1 news show for like 9 years, beating Olbie 3-to-1. He interupts when they are SPINNING, hence the No Spin Zone.

in a perfect world all women would find great men and they’d be great parents together. but, that doesn’t always happen and i don’t think a good woman should have to give up being a good mother just because she hasn’t found a man she’s willing to put up with. as for your examples, real dads and real moms also abuse their kids, not just steps. you are sadly mistaken if you think children who grow up without fathers are “messed up” more than anybody is messed up from anything when they were a kid. i’d rather be messed up from having an absent dad than messed up from having an abusive dad. again, i would highlight that having a great mom and a great dad is wonderful and ideal- the more the merrier, as far as family is concerned. but it’s not the only way to do it if life doesn’t work out that way, and kids lead very happy childhoods and adulthoods w/out fathers. remember, there used to be a stigma attached to being from a single parent home. now, it’s quite normal so many kids don’t think twice about it.

Dose Of Realism

Posted at 1:30 PM on August 11, 2010  

It is hard to understand the concept of the intact family unless you live outside of the liberal population centers. California is its own bubble world altogether. I know most people who are on this website are leftest liberals so they won’t agree with me. The main point I think he is making is that Jennifer is a role model and young people idolize her. They will take her words & actions as gospel or accepted life philosophy. But most of us do realize people like Jennifer live in their own world that is very different from your average American. The family is more important than most realize (man+woman+child). Look at the “hood” of Chicago. This place is imploding because real families are rare.

the traditional family unit is losing ground everywhere, not just in the hood. while that unit worked for a long time, and as i said below, it’s scarey to think how far we are moving away from it and what it could mean in that unchartered territory, i’m not entirely convinced that the structure you describe results in better results than the single parent structure. problems in the ‘hood are the result of many things independent from the breakdown of the family unit- disenfranchisement, poverty, drugs, etc. and children raised in a two parent household don’t always have it better than those raised in a single parent household. i am not striking down your ideas, and i don’t think i’m a crazy liberal (was a registered republican until i got fed up with bush #2)- but, i think it’s possible that the single mom phenomenon (not the deadbeat dad one, but the choice one) might not be as bad as a traditionalist thinks. afterall, these women are so focused in their desires for a child and have so much love to give that child, undivided, maybe that’s not such a bad or scarey thing. i don’t have the answers, but i’m just saying that you shouldn’t just chalk it all up to liberalism, and traditional notions aren’t always the best.

Bill O’Reilly is a right, wing, conservative, out of touch, moron! Ms. Aniston was not stating that all women should become single mothers. She was simply saying that it is possible for a women to raise decent, healthy, productive children without a man if that is her choice or indeed if the choice were not hers. My mother was deserted by my father and left to raise 3 children on her own. She loved her children and so she worked hard and did what she had to do. Of course it was extremely difficult but she did it! And there are many women who are emotionally and financially capable of making the choice to have children on their own and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. As usual the right wing conservative media is twisting someone’s words to further their own agenda and spout their hate filled rhetoric. O’Reilly is an ignorant hate monger!

Listening to a rabid one-man band (O’Reilly interrupts his fellow “commentators” so much, his shtick is a virtual monologue) does *not* make you “informed.” The Shirley Sherrod debacle was just the latest example of FOX flotsam that the mainstream, so-called “liberal” news media needlessly allowed to seep into the national consciousness as “information.” Being “informed” means you have a grasp of the facts and the truth. Try it … you might like it.

If you think watching Bill O’Reilly is the only way, or even a good way, to stay informed, then you have a skewed world view. O’Reilly is only good for two things: telling people what they akready believe and getting the oppressed majority all riled up about the injustice in the world.

I think it’s important, regardless of whether you consider yourself to be on the left or the right, to get information from all sides. It’s the only way to understand how different media outlets spin stories to fit their own biases.

(Example: You will never see me write a negative word about mah girl Sophia Bush on this site. Ever. You’ll have to look elsewhere for that.)

very true my boy… in the olden olden days, before you and me, they used to report news with overt bias/spin. the democrat paper openly called itself such and clearly stated it’s view and didn’t pretend to be objective, and didn’t waste its time even mentioning the other sides’ thoughts. same with the republican side. nobody pretended to be able to be objective. now, people pretend, and believe they are being objective, but it’s rarely true. if you have time to get both sides, you should. if you don’t, just know that you probably don’t have the whole story! (love the mah girl sophia bush comment… tho, it was confusing me b/c of her last name and the political implications!)

Jennifer was just stating the obvious – there are millions of families out there without a dad – no one said it’s ideal or easy, but often it’s easier to be without a dad in the family – for sure! Sometimes it’s the dad who’s causing a lot of problems, or a rift between the mom and dad makes life unbearable for the children. She’s not dangerous to society for making a comment that we all know is true – a woman can choose to have a family without having a man around, it’s a reality. Frankly, I think Jen was sticking up for women who do choose to not have to have a man around. If life was perfect and rosy everywhere, there’d be loving couples, loving their children and that would be the norm. If I were her age and had millions I wouldn’t be worrying about a dad – there are lots of male role models, friends, uncles, grandfathers. We wouldn’t be in this position as a society if men in the first place always took responsibility for who they knock up! Single mothers have been happening for eons! Suddenly J.A is the bad guy for saying something we all know is true? Please spare us.

Aniston may have been stating the obvious, but Bill is right on with what he is saying. There may be millions of families out there without a dad but there are just as many without moms. You can hate on men all you like but there are bad moms just like there are bad dads. When it comes to raising boys, they need a dad, a woman cant teach a boy to become a man because she doesn’t understand the whole male bonding aspect of the male relationship. Role models aren’t enough, for girls or boys, because the bond just isn’t the same. Why do you think adopted children always go looking for the paternal parents? Why do children from broken homes still want to be a part of both their parents lives? The answer is simple, There is a natural bond of the mind and soul that craves the parental instruction. It’s not in some of us, It’s in all of us, It’s what makes us human.

Bill is an ass.. and Aniston is a TWIT.. really who cares what either of these idiots think. Aniston is not even a parent. Lets hear from women who are parents and are making these choices. She has not made a decision on anything at all.

Aniston herself said she didn’t think AI or adoption was for her..hmmm what’s left Man/Woman.. she is not 20 years old. and having a child by herself is not possible..no matter what she thinks.

both of them should STFU..

You know though, it seems that the masses are falling for this homosexual thing of a mobob.IT’S IMMORAL, WICKED,
