Bill O’Reilly Still Thinks Amsterdam is a Cesspool of Crime

CANNABIS CULTURE – Fox News loudmouth Bill O’Reilly attacked Amsterdam’s “permissive” marijuana and prostitution laws again this week in an attempt to defended himself against online critics.

Last December, O’Reilly and his team of Fox Über-Conservatives reported on the Dutch city, calling it a “cesspool of corruption, crime”, and explaining that the people of Amsterdam “had really wonderfully naive ideas about teaching their children to have safe sex and smoke grass, and what’s happened is, all the criminals and drug addicts throughout Europe have gone and exploited that opening.”

In a hilarious YouTube video response to the O’Reilly Factor, an online poster from Amsterdam edited together clips from the show and drug statistics and footage from the city, poking holes in the Fox News host’s drug war fear-mongering.

Ol’ Bill just couldn’t let it slide, and on August 3, in an attempt to defend his position, he broached the subject again on the “Culture Warriors” segment of his show. After playing part of the YouTube video, which O’Reilly called “cute” propaganda, Factor commentators seemed to backtrack a little from their earlier hard-line stances.

When one of the guests brought up statistics showing that more Americans than Dutch had tried marijuana – by percentage – O’Reilly responded with a fantastic line: “The way they do their statistics in the Netherlands is different, plus it’s a much smaller country, it’s a much smaller base to do the stats on – okay, I don’t even care what happens in the Netherlands!”Watch the video on Fox News

In a related story, the Netherlands has recently been forced to close down prisons for lack of criminals. Sound like a cesspool to you?

    “When ever I here some right wing rhetoric about marijuana I wonder it the commentator is even aware of the difference between weed and heroin?”

    I wonder if they even know their ass from a hole in the ground?
    I have never minded debate based on fact and peer reviewed scientific data, but these morons only spread hate and injustice based on emotion and a religious need to control.

    As we are lucky that the dummest President of the USA of all times stepped down 7.5 month ago, togethher with the greatest liar, human rights violater and great earner on his self instigated war against Irak Dick Cheney, there peeped out another dummest specie of mankind (little fold ín Darwins evolution theory, I presume and hope) in the person of Bill O’Reilly of Fox News.
    The ignorant Bill said lately some flabbergasting things about my beautiful hometown Amsterdam, in casu crime, drugs etc..
    Bill has never been in Amsterdam I think.
    Bill’s knowledge of statisics however made clear that we deal (what’s in a word) with an early become demented person, whose statements we perhaps cannot blame him, wich is a relief for me.
    I think a country of miljons neo conservative, christian superstitionists gets the stupid tv host that it deserves.

    For a few years I watched Bill O’Reilly on Fox News. At that time I watched to see how many stupid ignorant things managed to escape his confused mind, and also so I could rant a bit about someone who supposedly was a college professor and a very sad case. It is obvious to me at this later date that the man is definitely suffering from a brain injury or has been brainwashed by the religious right, although I do not believe he has any spiritual beliefs which are not of the flat world variety.

    Most of those who do watch his antics at this time do it for laughs and realize he is totally without any standing in the intellectual community or for that matter with the peons and peasents that continue to watch for entertainment.

    The true fact of the matter is Amsterdam has fewer teens trying any drugs. When ever I here some right wing rhetoric about marijuana I wonder it the commentator is even aware of the difference between weed and heroin?
