It's the perfect combination. Blonde bimbos, supposedly spouting a conservative message. At least that used to be the O'Reilly Factor (FOX News Channel) formula. I noticed it years ago, but my wife wouldn't let me write about it. Talk about being hen-pecked. And here's a question from my wife. She what's to know what's the deal with the sleeveless outfits being worn by the FOX News blondes in the middle of winter. Is it fashion sense? Or a lack of common sense? Perhaps I should get to the point because this isn't Vogue magazine, but she was just wondering.
Back to the Culture Warriors. I finally figured it out. The Culture Warriors are warring against our Judeo-Christian culture. The segment is point / counter-point, as viewers are led to believe. It's political correctness at its best or worst, depending on your point of view. A couple of weeks ago, the "Culture Warriors" and Bill O'Reilly told America it was time for homosexuals to be allowed to openly serve in the U.S. military. The premise is so ridiculous, President Barack Obama just might get his way and fulfill his campaign pledge to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT). If you're in the military, don't drop your soap in the shower. This may sound crude, but the absurdity of it all brings out the worst in me.
Earlier this week, allegedly pro-family conservative Gretchen Carlson and FOX News analyst Margaret Hoover--who are the Culture Warriors--told the country tax payers should pay for sex change operations. You see, some guy or girl decided to have an operation to change the gender they were born with back in 2001. The operation was a success, if you can call it that, and this individual had the brilliant idea of writing the surgery off on his taxes. He or she got away with it for a while, until the IRS caught on. Now there is a legal debate over whether this type of operation falls under the category of a medical necessity.
O'Reilly's Culture Warriors agreed that something called "identity crisis" is a legitimate psychological malady that, of course, can be corrected by surgery. But let me digress for just a moment, to see if I am understanding this properly. A man who believes he is a woman is something that's abnormal and tax payers should pay to fix the problem. However, men who want to have sex with men is not a psychological abnormality, but society should provide special rights for this group as well.
I'm confused, but that happens easily, in this time of political correctness, or dare we call it madness.
Therefore, this is how the Culture Warriors segment ended. O'Reilly looks at Carlson and Hoover and says the surgery was justified; essentially saying taxpayers should pay for it by allowing it to be tax deductible. I believe he or she wrote off $5,000 on their income tax return in 2001. Carlson and Hoover both answered O'Reilly's query by saying "yes."
Isn't that special? The Culture Warriors come through again and promote a counter-cultural agenda that shocks most reasonable Americans.
