Which brings us full-circle back to my original thought: How much lower can these loathsome, vile creeps go in publicly outing a federally protected individual by stooping to such depths of depravity?

Hmm

Ahoy C'aptn! Logical fallacies off the starboard bow!

Sometimes conversations drift.

Even if the Act has no teeth, violating the Act may lead Rand to a world of hurt should harm befall the whistle blower as a result, and he sues Rand. A criminal act that harms someone is great fodder for civil lawsuits.

Nothing ever happened to Bill O'Reilly when he got Dr. George Tiller murdered. Hmm

Quote:
Tiller was a prominent abortion provider – maybe even the most prominent in the country at the time.

...

...between 2005 and April 2009, O’Reilly talked about Tiller on 29 episodes of his show. He repeatedly referred to him as “Tiller the Baby Killer” and hurled all sorts of other epithets in Tiller’s direction: He equated him with Nazis, al-Qaida and NAMBLA; said he was “operating a death mill”; claimed he was “executing babies about to be born”; and equated his profession with the actions of Mao, Hitler and Stalin.

In perhaps the most direct attack on Tiller, O’Reilly came close to saying that he personally would be violent toward Tiller if he could get away with it:

“And if I could get my hands on Tiller – well, you know. Can’t be vigilantes. Can’t do that. It’s just a figure of speech. But despicable? Oh, my God. Oh, it doesn’t get worse. Does it get worse? No.”

O'Reilly did not break the law. I think breaking the law, and then somebody gets harmed as a result, makes the case much stronger.
