8:00 pm
2 years ago today and now you know the news for this thursday, february the 9th, 2012. for the journalists of fox news, i'm shepard smith. thanks for trusting us for news and information. opinion and analysis gets cranking right now. >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight. >> he said i don' want anything we do to be an impediment and i take the protection of religious freedom as one of my highest responsibilities. >> bill: president obama saying that to archbishop dollan of new york. the president went ahead with his contraception plan anyway. we will take a look at what is becoming a constitutional issue. freedom of religion. >> you look at the people who i think some tea party folks look to glenn beck of the world say the president is a racist and they use the race baiting. >> shepard: cnn commentator roll land martin suspended for
8:01 pm
perceived anti-gay comments. we have analysis. >> do you ever watch "the o'reilly factor" on fox news? >> that was the one show on tv i wasn't allowed to watch. >> jesse watters goes to yale. no he he wasn't admitted. he is investigating sex week in new haven. >> um, i'm finished with this interview. >> bill: caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. captions by closed captioning services >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. are we losing freedom in america? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. millions of americans are angry because the obama administration is forcing them to buy government mandated health insurance. also the feds want us to pay a huge amount of estate tax intruding on family legacies. and now, now freedom of religion is in question
8:02 pm
because the obama administration is ordering religious based nonprofit institutions to cover birth control in their insurance plans. so let's take it step-by-step. first of all, president obama believes in social justice. that the federal government has a duty to impose fairness in the marketplace and to redistribute income to folks who don't have very much. that is a core belief for barack obama. now, whenever you impose anything, there is an intrusion. you are being told what to do. that is why the supreme court is hearing the obama care controversy. at issue is the government attempting to control the health care industry. what's covered, what's paid out, what's purchased. if obama care stands, your freedom in the health care area is much less than it used to be. the upside about 40 million americans will get health care, much of it subsidized by the taxpayer. on the energy front, the obama administration wants alternative energy to take the place of oil and other fossil fuels. so far the feds have invested more than 90 billion taxpayer dollars in green research. some of it totally down the
8:03 pm
drain like the solyndra situation. also, oil production is being discouraged in america. hard to get drilling permits and the oil pine line from canada has been shut down by the obama administration. the result, gas prices have increased 90% on mr. obama's watch. that means how you drive your car. heat your home, and li day-to-day is now being impacted by the federal government. they want you to use energy their way. and finally the birth control situation. the founding fathers wanted the government to stay out of religion. not impose it, but not interfere with it either. the catholic church does not believe in birth control. it doesn't matter if the faithful go along or not. the church says no. but the obama administration says yes that church affiliated insurance plans have to cover birth control pills and even the morning after pill in some cases. and that is an enormous intrusion on religion.
8:04 pm
archbishop timothy dollan spoke to president obama before the mandate came down. >> he said i don't want anything we do to be an impediment and i take the protection of conscience and religious freedom highest responsibilities. when i left the oval office where i was very grateful for his invitation to be there, i left with high hopes that nothing that his administration would do would impede the good work that he admitted and acknowledged in the church. and i'm afraid i don't have those sentiments of hope now. >> bill: well, it will be fast sipating to see if americans reelect barack obama. it is clear the president believes is he absolutely correct in putting forth federal mandates that effect all of our lives. do you feel the way mr. obama does? we'll find out in november. and that's the memo. joining us from washington radio talk show star lauer ingraham who herself converted to catholicism in 2003. we know you think that this
8:05 pm
is, like i do, right? you agree with the talking points memo that this is a government intrusion, constitutionally it shouldn't stand. you agree with all of that, right? >> yeah. birth control is kind of a too broad of a way to state it. it makes it less popular among the public. abort facen drugs and all manor of birth control should be paid for without charge by all employers in the united states with very very narrow exceptions. it's even beyond catholic. >> bill: you believe this is an intrusion of freedom of religion, correct? >> absolutely, yes. >> bill: you have vice president biden a catholic and daily, former chief of staff to president obama, another catholic, both telling the president, according to politico, this isn't good, all right? you have got to give a waiver, not a hard thing to do. you have got to give a waiver to church-based institutions so they are not forced to cover this on their insurance plans because you are going to get in trouble constitutionally, mr. president. all right. so he listens to those arguments and then kathleen
8:06 pm
sebelius, secretary of health comes. in another catholic, governor of kansas supporter of tiller the late term abortion doctor. she comes in and says you know what, president, this is about women's rights. this is not about freedom of religion. mr. obama buys this sebelius argument and therefore we have the controversy we have now. my question is for a guy who knows that catholics voted for him in 2008, he has got to know this is -- this is a loser and i believe he is going to retract himself on it. >> he is going to have to walk it back in some way, no doubt about it i think it will happen probably like late on a friday is when they usually drop that type of news. bill, there is some reporting today that indicated there was a gender difference in the white house. so, women kind of lined up for, quote, women's rights, which is a hilarious way of framing it. but it's all -- you know, valerie jarrett, kathleen sebelius and perhaps even the first lady who. >> bill: we don't want to speculate that. >> we don't want -- one thing
8:07 pm
we know she has not shied away from giving her views on policies and politics in the past. >> bill: not fair to put her in any category at all. you are right that it was framed as a argument against women's rights. all right, now, you are a woman. you have a right to go to any clinic you want, planned parenthood being the best example and pick up any birth control device you want to pick up. i don't understand the intrusion. you want it free, there is clinics all day long that give it out free. >> bill, you hit on it in the talking points memo. there is an effort in this administration to create a bailout for a whole bunch of things. today we had the president on the housing market with underwater mortgages. getting some settlement if all these banks so people are going to get relief. college kids getting tuition help where they are telling us what kind of light bulbs to use. all these things happening out there that make people more dependent on government
8:08 pm
bailout programs, food stamps. this is just one more of those. right? so now there is no need to pay for anything related to sterilization or birth control or abortion inducing pills. the government is stepping in and taking care of women who want those services. and for all of us watching this we think it's not about the catholic church they are involved. this is about freedom. this is about our ability as employers of conscience across the united states to say look, for us, if you want to do what you want to do, go ahead and do it, more power to you. but we don't want to pay for this. this doesn't be in our plan if it's morally offensive to us. i think obama miscalculated. >> bill: the imposition of style of behavior that the catholic church says is not acceptable to it. and then you go back to the founding fathers and they basically said, listen federal government, number one, we don't want a big federal government anyway. we want the states to make most of the decisions but the federal government has to regulate commerce, it has to
8:09 pm
print money and defend the shores. you know what else it has to do, stay out of the religion business. stay out of it. if there is any question, back off, give the waiver. >> bill, remember what the president said in the campaign in 2008. he was asked, i think it was some forum he he was speaking at and he said, you know, it's his daughters, something happened they got pregnant, he wouldn't want them, quote, punished with a baby. this goes to the heart of the way the secular left views this issue. pregnancy can be considered a disease if in fact a woman doesn't find it a convenient time to be pregnant. that's a very radical way of looking at pregnancy and i think for a lot of women across the country, even who have disagreements on this the idea that the government would tell employers that you must provide this type of coverage seems to go against, you know, what we believe in as freedom. freedom of conscience.
8:10 pm
>> bill: that's how i feel. it will be interesting to see if people start to rally around the concept that the government is now pretty much overreaching and violating the constitution. >> laura: they are trying to tag it this is a bitter control issue. it's not a birth control issue. go to planned parenthood, bill. they are getting $500 million a year from the federal government. go there. >> bill: next on the run down, cnn suspends a commentator for anti-gay tweets. the guy has called other people bigots in the past. is this karma? we will have the story. antiobesity campaign, culture warriors on that coming up.

8:13 pm
>> bill: personal story segment tonight, cnn commentator roland martin suspended for perceived antigay comments on twitter. the network saying martin's tweets were regrettable and offensive. he said, quote: if a dude at your super bowl party is behind about david beckham's h and m underwear ad smack the ish out of him, unquote. martin mocked somebody wearing a pink outfit in another tweet. now, this is ironic because martin himself often brands people as bigots on the air. glenn beck, rush limbaugh and me your humble correspondent among others. he has called organized religion desperately sexist and branded tea party leaders
8:14 pm
as stupid. karma may have caught up with martin. a gay rights group. is cnn right in taking glenn beck off air. >> more importantly he should be fired for what he said. what he said gives license for people to harm lgbt people. gay and lesbian people are twice as likely than african-americans and jews to be harmed in hate crimes. four times more likely than muslims and 14 times more likely than latinos. there is a huge problem. we see it both with bullying in schools andlso with hate crimes out on the streets. for someone to say because somebody looks different, because they don't like the way the handbag they are wearing is, or a number of things, these tweets gave license, i think they allowed people to justify rationalize harming gay, lesbian by sex equal and transtransgender
8:15 pm
people. >> bill: he says it was not anti-gay tweet he was beckham is a soccer player and that is what he was doing. >> that's interesting because i didn't see soccer in his tweet. if he wanted to talk about soccer. >> bill: you didn't see gay people either. there isn't anything gay in his tweets. we have to be careful. >> we know what he meant. >> bill: mocking soccer player because beckham is a soccer player and not gay people. i couldn't care less about roll manned martin. i don't follow him. i don't care what he says. i think is he a moron, but. >> we agree. >> bill: point is he is being persecuted for mock ago soccer player and soccer player fanatics, not gays. >> well, i think, you know, that's just not true. i think there was a number of tweets that seem to be picking on gay people. i think that that's a lame excuse on his part. and i believe that he also has a history of making antigay remarks. he has compared gay and
8:16 pm
lesbian people to alcohol. >> bill: was there another incident that i don't know about? what was the history. >> yes. he had written a column a few years earlier that compared gay and lesbian people to alcoholics that his wife had helped deliver them from being gay through this sort of prayer way to gay. there is a history there. >> bill: get this guy. i don't want to see him anymore. cnn guy. can conduct its business the way it wants to. i don't care one way or the other. here is what i want to know from you. you can make fun of a gay person in this country? can you just make a joke about a gay person? people make jokes about personnel here at fox news all the time. they mock us, jon stewart mocks everybody. letterman mocks everybody. can you mock a gay person and your organization, other organizations, will you be okay with that if it's just done, you know, in a casual, allegedly humorous way? can you do that? >> well, i think it depends on
8:17 pm
context and intent. i think we all usually can see the difference. i think his background of homophobe i can't played into this. but, of course you can. we also do know that when people say things that are immature, unprofessional and don't live up to journalistic standards they're often taken off the air. we saw what happened with rick sanchez in the movies with mel gibson. helen thomas. there is a number of examples of people who violate standards and seem to go and say things that are beyond the pale. and i think this fits into that category. and cnn should fire him. >> bill: you think he should lose his job. see, i wouldn't fire him. you know, i don't like the firing business. i have no regard for this. the guy as i said. i don't think i would fire him on it we approach united states your point of view, mr. besen, thanks for coming. in culture warriors on deck. some mothers are angry at the federal government's antiobesity campaign. we will find out why. jesse watters goes to yale to find out about sex week up there. we're not kidding.

8:23 pm
mom sitting with the child is heavy. >> they have got to get the attention of the american public. >> bill: worth it because. >> what these campaigns these moms got together and created 23 million impressions on twitter. teach you something about twitter there is a a thing called a hash tag and then it said ashamed. this propagated twitter verse 23 million people saw. this their message is that what you are doing is you are shaming kids and that is not a motivator for becoming skinny. >> what about the parents though? what about the parents? >> bill: we have freedoms in this country. as you said some people put on weight easier than other people. some people are lazy or some people just want to be fat. they want to eat. they like food. we don't have a right to intrude on that unless it intrudes on us and it does in the health care industry; unfortunately with children they get bull idea and everything like that. i will let the audience make up their mind on this. very complicated, very emotional. 9-year-old catholic school boy in a talent contest. where is this?

8:25 pm
principal. >> bill: 9 years old. >> ended up one day suspension back in school and the principal apologized. >> he had performed this before. worked hard on routine. by the way you saw him dancing there. he is a good dancer. two gesture the principal doesn't like. yells at him. suspends him. doesn't talk to the parents first. this 9-year-old boy had gotten up in front of all his teachers, pierce to perform and pretty good dancer by the way. >> bill: remember when carlson said she was a chubby kid could speak to this. because i went to catholic school and suspended half my life i can speak to this emotionally. all right? now, this kid, what he did, he didn't know what he was doing. all right? that's number one. so intent, in the catholic church you can't commit a sin unless you intend to commit it know it's a sin and commit it all right? number two, grabbing the pants wasn't the wisest thing in the world. now, i don't know what the teachers knew and didn't know so i can't say that i think it was an overreaction to suspend
8:26 pm
the kid. i would have pulled the kid and side and said if you touch your pants again i will hang you by your ankles. that's the way they used to do in catholic school. i don't know if they do it anymore. it's not sending the right message to your piers. i have got to tell you, compared to what i did. >> that's nothing? >> bill: this kid should have got a little medal. what i did at that school, i will tell you story some day when we have a little more time. should be an hour special.

8:39 pm
anchor megyn kelly. i think it's going to wound its way up to the supreme court. what do you think will happen. >> i don't know if it will wind its way up to the supreme court. having seen what the basis is for the opinion. they crafted a pretty narrow opinion. and there is spexz that they did that with the expressed goal of dissuading the united states supreme court. >> bill: they don't want the supreme court overturn them. >> they have may have succeeded. it's no the this broad based opinion saying equal protection clause and due process clause of the constitution afford gays a fundamental right to marry, that would make its way up to the supreme court. it's a very sort of limited basis once you have granted the right to marry like they did in california like before prop 8 came around aalong. >> bill: will 8 to a legislation. >> once you granted you try to take it away or once you allow civil unions but you won't give them the extra label of marriage, they say then that's
8:40 pm
more problematic. that's how they got -- >> bill: i think the supreme court has to define the rights of the state to hold referendums votes on issues and judges come in and just kick it the judges basically said there was no reason, no reason. >> no rational basis for the law. >> bill: that's not for the judges to decide unless it's a flagrant violation. >> no, no, no. you are wrong. there is a legal standard. >> bill: why would one judge vote against it in i'm wrong. >> you are misstating the legal test that's where you are wrong. it is for the court to say is this law rationally related to a legitimate -- to a legitimate federal purpose or government purpose? and this judge, these two judges said no, there is no rational basis for it it. >> bill: if i were going to challenge and you have got to assume they will. i would go in and say these judges basically overturned the will of the people for no reason. that's why the supreme court is to decide whether the folks can make the laws based upon either a legislature or direct vote, referendum or not. >> i will tell you this, once
8:41 pm
