O'Reilly Attacks "The Bourne Ultimatum", Calls It "Un-American"

Paddy: When bashing Democrats doesn't work out Bill O'Reilly turns to fictional characters.
This post, written by Paddy, originally appeared on Cliff Schecter.com

You've got to give it to Billo, when bashing Democrats and their venues doesn't work out (how's that spank mark healing from your tete a tete with Senator Dodd?), he takes it right to the heart of Un-American Values..... fictional characters in movies.
'Bourne' flick is ultimately un-American
... I knew this movie was trouble when I read the reviews. Almost all the critics liked it. The only way American movie critics would like a violent car-chase film like this was if it bashed the USA, which, of course, it does.
The CIA guys are bad, bad, bad. And just to make sure Indonesian and Pakistani audiences get the picture, the CIA chief issues his evil orders with the American flag clearly seen on his desk. No language barrier here, no sir. The U.S. intelligence agencies are fiendish enterprises that want to hurt Damon and actually force Stiles to cut her own hair. How could they?
Oh, wait. Whew, he's not that crazy!! He bases some of his criticism of the movie on...... things the actors in the movie said when they weren't acting. That's MUCH better.
Actually, neither Damon nor Stiles has to do much acting. Damon does work for the far-left MoveOn organization and is on record as requesting that the Bush daughters serve in Iraq. The actor also told the Idaho Statesman that the CIA's use of water boarding is an erosion of our American values.
Guess what? There's a water-boarding scene in the flick. What a coincidence!
Stiles is also down with the far left. On a cable program she explained why she missed a MoveOn event by saying: "I was afraid that Bill O'Reilly would come with a shotgun at my front door and shoot me for being unpatriotic."
