Bill O’Reilly: Freaking out over Beyoncé’s new video

Beyonce

It’s been two weeks since Beyoncé released the music video for “Partition,” causing all of our nation’s children to turn into murderous crackwhores wandering the scorched, barren landscape that was once America, destroying everything in their path. Oh wait? That never happened? Because sexuality doesn’t actually harm anyone and demonizing it only teaches kids to be ashamed of themselves? Oh, that’s right. So then why is Bill O’Reilly acting like that happened? Oh, because he’s a douche. That’s right, I forgot about that. Rolling Stone reports …

O’Reilly countered by saying that Simmons is a good father and that not every child gets that kind of guidance, and that’s when the record-industry vet used a word that flummoxed the TV host. “Bill, if you think that the art that comes out of a community – ”

O’Reilly interrupted: “That’s art?! Beyoncé in the back of a limo having sex and referencing Monica Lewinsky, is art?”

“Yeah, it is actually,” Simmons said. “She’s a brilliant artist. And she’s not only [appreciated] by people of color, as you know, she’s really one of the top artists in the world [to] people of every color.”

“Yeah, she is, and I can’t understand why the woman did it,” O’Reilly said.

Yes, why would people have sex? Except for love, fun, basic human interaction … look, there are a lot of reasons why people bang, and it’s not going to destroy America if people stopped feeling bad or ashamed for wanting to have sex, and it wouldn’t be the worst thing if we stopped treating the human body like a sack of filth that you must avoid else you turn into some wanton hussy.
