Anchor of FOX News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor" Bill O'Reilly has called out people to rally protests against the movie.
Lashing out at Bill O'Reilly for criticizing "Redacted", executive producer for the movie Mark Cuban has received harsh response from the FOX News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor" anchor. The famous political commentator now is calling for his listeners to protest the Brian De Palma-directed drama, which depicts the real tragic events surrounding a U.S. army squad that targets and persecutes an innocent Iraqi girl and her family.
Accusing Cuban to have a grudge against the States while deeming his film to incite anti-American hatred around the world, O'Reilly has asked the ticket holders to Cuban-owned Dallas Maverick games to bring signs to the arena saying 'support the troops.' The man has also advised others to bring the same sign in front of the theaters they find out to screen the movie.
"I would never sit through a movie that shows American troops raping and murdering a 14-year-old girl... ever," O'Reilly firmly stated. "You ought to be ashamed of yourself, Mr. Cuban! While you're 'dancing with the stars,' hundreds of thousands of brave military people are risking their lives so you can do the Mambo without fear of some terrorist blowing you the hell up."
O'Reilly's protest on the picture has already earned supports from both FNC's Kirsten Powers and Republican strategist Margaret Hoover though the former, on the other hand, sees "no need to hold a sign" to prove that she support the troops. The latter, in the meantime, has expressed her willingness to join the protest, saying she "will absolutely be out there" with O'Reilly.
"...This is an example of the incredible hubris of the American far left," Hoover commented. "This movie is going to become a recruiting tool for terrorists who will kill American troops, and it is unacceptable."
