O’Reilly’s redefinition of patriotism

Greg W. writes:

Yesterday Bill O’Reilly excoriated those opposing intervention in Libya for being isolationists, which is a pejorative on par with “racist” in his mind. He has defined “isolationists” as those who believe the U.S. should only intervene in situations that serve our national interest; to protect Americans from an imminent threat.

He insinuated that it is un-American not to bomb Libya and take out Kaddafi. So, to O’Reilly, Americans who think America should look after Americans first and protect only American national interests, are un-American. The only true American patriots are those who favor perpetual war in foreign countries that are no threat to our national security.
