Geraldo On Edge

Here we go. Geraldo Rivera finally finally reveals his true beliefs! Pity the illegal alien, they are going to be blamed for Osama bin Laden.

Fox 'n Friends trying to grill him after his appearance on Bill O'Reilly last night when he and O'Reilly screamed their differing opinions at each other.

We can only hope Fox will wake up and can this man's program Geraldo At Large. He did the same thing during the Clinton era with his pity of poor Bill for being asked to testify about lying under oath and to federal investigators. For the people in the hustings, lying to feds is a crime, and if prosecuted, you will serve jail time.

what did Geraldo say about the illegal alien who committed not just one crime, but three crimes. Oops, those were not felonies, a couple were not even misdemeanors. Instead of proving his opinion, he takes a swipe at Lou Dobbs on CNN saying he's trying to revive his failing career on the backs of who - illegal immigrants.

Geraldo said it is we, the United States who are enticing them here with the promise of jobs.

What? We have visa program, documented worker program, and a legal path to citizenship in this nation which is absolutely unparalled around the globe.

The reason many illegal aliens enter illegally people is because they were criminals back in their country of origin, wherever that is.

Geraldo even tried to make Bill O'Reilly's outrage over the case of the illegal alien who killed two young girls - under the age of 21 - in Virginia - look as if he, the illegal alien, was being targeted because he's a Latino.

O'Reilly tried to say no, that's not realistic, but Geraldo kept on and that raised O'Reilly's blood pressure and voice.

The two ended up screaming back and forth.

It isn't that we don't appreciate different viewpoints on the issue. Geraldo has gone over the edge - what he's doing is condoning illegal aliens coming in to our nation - and as long as they don't commit any crime that rises to the level of a felony - well that's ok, that's all right with the world.

No, it isn't all right. And it doesn't matter what their nation of origin. The fact they enter the country illegally, when there are numerous ways to opt into the country legally, shows they are not the kind of person we need to raise our country up, rather than lower our country down.

As bad, and even worse, were his accusations against the MinuteMen

RIVERA: The Minutemen are wearing guns now on the border.

O'REILLY: You listen to me. I will listen to you.

RIVERA: Are they going to start shooting illegal aliens?,2933,264526,00.html

There goes Geraldo, making it seem as though the law-abiding MinuteMen are worse than the already non-law abiding illegal aliens!

Let's hope the MinuteMen and their supporters write Fox and demand cancellation of Geraldo At Large, once and for all.


Bill O'Reilly transcript of appearance

O'Reilly and Geraldo on Illegals
Friday, April 06, 2007

This is a partial transcript from "The O'Reilly Factor," April 5, 2007, that has been edited for clarity.

BILL O’REILLY, HOST: Now for the "Top Story" tonight: another view of this on the fair and balanced network, FOX News correspondent Geraldo Rivera, seen weekends at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.


O'REILLY: OK. Sanctuary cities, what do you think?

RIVERA: I think you have the story almost exactly wrong, my friend. I think that we're talking about drunk driving. And there were 347 drunk driving fatalities in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the year 2005. I think this may be the first drunk driving story we have done from Virginia.

And the only reason it's news on "The Factor" is because the driver was an illegal alien.,2933,264526,00.html

Geraldo and O'Reilly Almost Come to Blows!! Both Lose Cool
Posted by Warner Todd Huston on April 6, 2007 - 11:18.

Simply wow, is all I can say to the segment on last night's O'Reilly Factor. Both of them lost their cool in the extreme.

O'Reilly screams that Geraldo wants "anarchy", Geraldo yells that O'Reilly wants to take illegal aliens and "do something to them" over the infuriating story of a drunk illegal who killed two teenaged girls in a Virginia Beach car accident.

Illegal ignored 'don't drive' warning after drinking
Man in crash that killed 2 teens had previous DUI conviction

World Net Daily

Alfredo Ramos, a Mexican national in the U.S. illegally, was convicted of driving while intoxicated last year, but that didn't keep him from being behind the wheel after a night of drinking last weekend – and now two teenage girls are dead because of it.

According to police, Ramos, 22, slammed the 1998 Mitsubishi he was driving into the rear of a 1994 Plymouth driven by Allison Kunhardt, 17, Friday night in Virginia Beach, Va. Kunhardt and her best friend Tessa Tranchant, 16, were stopped at a traffic light when they were hit from behind. Although both wore seat belts, both died – one at the scene and one after arriving at the hospital.

Ramos, suffered only minor injuries, the Virginian-Pilot reported.

Police blamed speed and alcohol for the crash.

Ramos, charged with manslaughter for the two deaths, was convicted last year of public drunkenness in Virginia Beach and driving under the influence in Chesapeake.

Ramos brother, also in the U.S. illegally, told the Virginian-Pilot he had spoken with his brother by phone prior to the accident and warned him not to drive after learning he had been drinking.

Ramos told his brother he had no memory of the crash and only learned of Kunhardt's and Tranchant's deaths when police told him he had killed two people...

Virginia Beach leaders strike back at Fox's Bill O'Reilly
© April 5, 2007 | Last updated 12:18 PM Apr. 6

VIRGINIA BEACH - City leaders launched a counterattack against Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly on Thursday, calling him a "TV show gadfly" after he blamed the city in the deaths of two teenagers and accused local leaders of providing sanctuary to illegal immigrants.

Faced with angry e-mails and a potential black eye just before the start of tourist season, city officials called a news conference to defend themselves in a case that is drawing national attention.

City leaders tried to shift the debate about the recent deaths of Alison Kunhardt, 17, and Tessa Tranchant, 16, away from illegal immigration and onto drunk driving. Alfredo Ramos, 22, the man charged with aggravated involuntary manslaughter in their deaths, had a record of three alcohol-related convictions and was in the country illegally...
