Bill O’Reilly Pins the Head of SJC Councilman Derek Reeve for Naming Family Dog Muhammad

Time was, you’d have to wait for Keith Obermann to label a San Juan Capistrano city councilman who named his dog after the prophet Muhammad the World’s Worst Person. But Obermann is now on some channel you can’t find without a program guide, so it is up to another flaming liberal chatter to tar Councilman Derek Reeve as a “pinhead.”
Uh, check that: it was Obermann’s arch rival, Bill O’Reilly.
Voting on a local dog park at the Sept. 6 City Council meeting, Reeve let it slip that his pooches are named America and Muhammad. That prompted his colleagues to seek “decorum” at future council meetings–and the Greater Los Angeles office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Anaheim to later seek an apology.
But Reeve has been unrepentant, explaining that he did not mean to offend Muslims but to teach his children about free speech, noting that in some parts of the Islamic world he could be put to death for naming his dog after the religion’s prophet.
Besides, the Pattersons across the street already took that name Saxnōt for their cockapoo.
Well, the whole dust-up prompted Papa Bear to put Reeve in the first category during The O’Reilly Factor‘s “Pinheads & Patriots” segment on Fox News Thursday. “Why offend Muslims if you don’t have to?” O’Reilly reasoned. “You want to teach your kids about intolerance, there are plenty of other ways to do it.”

Reacting via his Facebook page, Reeve wrote, “”I’m a pin head, lol.”
