This past week on the Radio Factor, Bill O'Reilly called the Far Left the greatest danger to the country, and once again claimed to be an Independent who didn't have to excoriate the far right because "after Tim McVeigh and the Oklahoma bombing, the government put an end to militias."

While in the past he has equated the Far Left with Nazis -- "The Far Left in this country, the zealots, are Nazis," -- before we castigate him for denigrating in the worst terms, we should first find out who Bill is speaking about when he mentions the "Far Left." If for no other reason, so we can round up the usual suspects when the next building explodes.

Sure, the Far Left has the obvious bomb-toting militia members: Nancy Pelosi, a "far-left secular-progressive bomb thrower," George Soros, "the single most dangerous individual in the United States of America," the ACLU, "the most dangerous organization in the United States of America right now...They're, like, second next to Al Qaeda,", "the worst Americans in the country." And, of course, Bill Moyers. Just, Bill Moyers.

But there's more. A lot more. Thanks to the Far Left, here's a Nazis and Left-handed, bomb-throwing militias list of just some of the people and organizations Bill considers Far Left.

We need look no further than Washington to find the danger. Russ Feingold, Chuck Schumer, Barbara Boxer, Ted Kennedy and John Conyers can be found voting for some bring-down-America legislation. And isn't that Howard Dean and John Podesta hiding insidiously behind the cherry blossoms...right next to Presidential nominee, Barack Obama, who is in bed with the Far-Left media ? This isn't to mention the future Washington bombers like -- wait for it, Bill. Wait for it -- Al Franken.

Obviously, Hollywood harbors those who want to do everything possible to hurt the rich: Jodie Foster, Meg Ryan, Drew Barrymore, Danny DeVito, The Osbornes, Ellen Degeneres, Matthew Perry, Billy Crystal, Sharon Stone, Bill Maher, Susan Sarandon, Harry Belafonte, George Clooney, Barbra Streisand, Michael Moore.

The organizations who give you no choice except for the opportunity to choose: Planned Parenthood, Amnesty International and the Extreme Middle of the Road, Far Centrist Foundation For Moderation (moi little group).

But more than anyone, the Far-Left media is out there, in black and white denigrating the red, white and blue, many times printing actual quotes and transcripts or offering explosive soundbites and video: the late Molly Ivins, Frank Rich, Robert Scheer, Bob Herbert, Paul Krugman, Brian Lowry, Media Matters for America, Air America Radio,, NY Times,Atlanta Journal Constitution, Paul Krugman, The Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, St. Petersburg Times, Dayton Daily News,Syracuse Post-Standard.

While only a partial list, these hate America, hate the troops, hate normalcy, hate everything good, fascists, are ready to destroy the very U.S. of A. ground you walk on.

Be afwaid. Be vewy, vewy afwaid.

Thank you, Bill, for your independent warning.

And cruel as the media gods are, O'Reilly gets to continue tossing his McCarthyesque bombs, newman and interviewer par excellance, Tim Russert, sadly passes.

Rest in peace, Tim. Thanks for reminding us what it can be like. .
