Bill-O Attacks Stephen Colbert For Mocking His Plan For A Mercenary Force To Defeat ISIS

Papa Bear O'Reilly isn't happy with Stephen Colbert for making fun of his grand plan to have a mercenary army defeat ISIS.

Bill O'Reilly's lamebrain plan to have a 25,000 man mercenary army defeat ISIS was too crazy for his Fox cohort, Charles Krauthammer, but that didn't stop Bill-O from calling Stephen Colbert names for mocking it last week. I wonder if old SauerKraut realizes that his buddy just called him "dumb?"

O’Reilly Fires Back at Colbert: He Has ‘No Bleeping Clue’ How to Fight ISIS:

Colbert ridiculed O’Reilly’s proposal last week and suggested “mutant double ninja super-soldiers with laser nunchucks” or “an invisible bomb that only blows up bad guys” as equally reasonable ideas.

O’Reilly continued to insist that his plan is a good one and only “dumb people” disagree. And not only are Colbert and everyone else mocking him dumb, they’re also ignorant and vacant and have nothing to contribute to the conversation, simply because they think his idea is silly:

“Mr. Colbert and others of his ilk have no bleeping clue how to fight the jihad. They don’t know anything. And when somebody gets beheaded, their reaction is ‘Oh, that’s bad!’ But by being completely vacant, it doesn’t stop these people from mocking ideas that might have some value.”

He concluded, “In the world of the ideologue… solutions don’t really matter.”

Here's the Colbert clip for anyone that missed it.
