It’s been about a whole month since Bill O’Reilly
picked a fight with a rapper, perhaps prompted by the fact that others have picked up the mantle. Among them is Laura Ingraham
, who has been doing yeoman’s work in calling out Chris Brown
for his corrosive influence on American culture. He and his friends (which he apparently has) have struck back, and in response O’Reilly
extended an open invitation to Brown
and 50 Cent
to debate their stances.
is out and about promoting her book, Of Thee I Zing, much of which is dedicated to the “culture wars
” and the influence that rappers have on children. Brown
, of course, is a bit of a different example as his most prominent contribution to American society has been getting arrested for beating up former girlfriend Rihanna
admits that he has no idea what any of Chris Brown
’s songs are– and there at least this author is in concert. He also reads, quite comically, one of the tweets in response to Ingraham
attacking him on Today this morning: “They mad because of the level of real people who live in this world. Not to mention their ratings probably sucked.
” “Apparently, Mr. Brown does not live on this planet,
joked, adding to Ingraham
probably “did you a favor
” since his attack went out “over the internet tweeting system or whatever it’s called.
replied that she had a problem with their “negative and depraved attitude towards women,
” and explains that it was not only Brown
, but 50 Cent
that came out “and he slams me, and that’s find… it’s the same degrading lyrics and degrading words.
” She then argues that the abusive language is a product of them being unable to but together an argument. “I’d like to see them come on the program here,
replied, “Mr. Brown and Mr. ‘Fiddy…’ They’re welcome anytime to come on.” O’Reilly
noted that he had extended a similar invitation to Ludacris
many years ago and the conversation was fruitful. “But it’s gotten worse
” since then, Ingraham
argued, and O’Reilly
had to agree: “it’s gotten worse because it’s gotten more accepted.
While a 50 Cent/Bill O’Reilly
debate would’ve been a ratings bonanza in 2004, one can imagine that watching O’Reilly
– or anyone, really– tear Chris Brown
apart, whose likability ratings are probably somewhere in between Casey Anthony and Rod Blagojevich
would be a major draw.
