UPDATE: By the way, I have gotten tired of hearing Geraldo whine about how he “broke the story” of the murders on his show the other night, before anyone else was reporting on it. Is that going to be his claim to fame? Sorry. I had to get that off my chest too.
While doing my evening viewing of the Fox News Channel the past few days, I have been obliged to endure Geraldo Rivera on The O’Reilly Factor, Hannity & Colmes and, now, Fox & Friends.
Here he is on The O’Reilly Factor the other night.
He lost his cool with Sean Hannity the other night, when trying to spin the case on the charges leveled against Jose Carranza, an illegal alien, and was fronted out by Sean for trying to brush that aspect aside as a trivial point. Here he is in an excerpt from Hannity & Colmes, when Sean got him so incited.
I thought Geraldo was going to burst a blood vessel.
It was almost comical, if it were not for it being so damned annoying, that Geraldo, like so many of his Leftnut buddies, wishes to turn a blind eye to the problems that illegal immigration levies upon our society.
Michelle Malkin appeared on Fox & Friends yesterday with Kelly, Gretchen and Greg to discuss the gangland-style Newark, NJ murders and sanctuary city practices of Newark.
This morning, Geraldo showed up on Fox & Friends with Kelly, Gretchen and Brian to try and counter Michelle’s appearance yesterday on that show, where she was demonstrating the insanity in this having been a 100% preventable crime. Geraldo was having none of that.
Geraldo resorted to emotional arguments throughout, and cited statistics without ever noting the source of those stats, and many of his stats aren’t even right. And he had to ignore some obvious things — such as the inherent criminality of illegal immigrants — to get anywhere near making a substantive point. Instead of making real points, he just kept ranting about “Pablo” and injecting race into the debate, and then accusing Michelle of injecting race when she clearly hadn’t.
Had Carranza been deported, in all likelihood, the three youths in Neward that were executed gangland style may well still be alive today. But, he was not and they are not.
At the very least, this predator could have been held without bail, pending a deportation hearing on his illegal immigration status, after being charged with raping a child, he would not have been out to commit the murders.
But, that doesn’t play well with Geraldo’s spin, so we should brush over it, as he sees it. What a nimrod.
I think Geraldo is full of the “bullcrap” Michelle noted in her post and on television. He doesn’t want to be reminded of all the other horrific crimes being perpetrated by criminal aliens in the U.S., like I have posted on here and here, just for recent examples.
By all means, when it comes to illegal aliens, especially criminal illegal aliens,…
