[UPDATED with Plagiarism Allegations:] Bill O'Reilly Pins the Head of SJC Councilman Derek Reeve for Naming Family Dog Muhammad

UPDATE, SEPT. 27, 10:17 A.M.: Before Bill O'Reilly labeled Derek Reeve a "pinhead" for naming one of his dogs after the Islamic prophet Muhammad, the San Juan Capistrano city councilman was being called out for plagiarism.

Editors say Reeve was questioned about a passage in one Patch.com column that was apparently lifted word-for-word from another publication without attribution. The councilman reportedly explained it away as human error, but his defense and Patch work stopped about a month ago when more examples of plagiarism were found in dozens of his writings.

Reports San Juan Capistrano Patch editor Jenna Chandler, "as much as two-thirds of Reeve's essays were a patchwork of paragraphs identical to material written by newspaper columnists and reporters for such publications as The Oregonian and The Hill."

Chandler's piece includes multiple examples of Reeve passing off the prose of others as his own. It's bad enough that a city councilman is plagiarizing, but he's also a lawyer who lectures at local colleges. One, as Chandler points out, is Concordia University, whose employee handbook states: "Plagiarism may be unintentional or intentional. Both are serious academic violations."

A Concordia spokeswoman did not return Patch's messages seeking comment.

ORIGINAL POST, SEPT. 23, 1:09 P.M.: 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."

Here's the video:



Reacting via his Facebook page, Reeve wrote, ""I'm a pin head, lol."

Now he has something in common with the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Ph.D.

What good is free speech if you can't say things that upset people?

Do Muslim parents change their children's names if they become thieves, rapists or murders?

Jews do not use the name of G-d, but they don't go around murdering Jehovah Witnesses who do use the sacred name. 

Most dogs that I know are much nicer than most people I know.  The odds are that if you name a child and a dog "Mohammed" at birth, the dog will end up being much nicer than the child.

" -0- " what's that?  A picture of the Prophet Mohammed, of a zero with 2 dashes, a dog named Mohammed.

It's OK to poke fun at terrorists and pedophiles. That covers Muhammed and his followers.

Thanks for your comment Mr. O'Reilly. It is totally distasteful from a public figure to show his hidden prejudice. Thanks again.

Muslims are supposed to despise dogs. Mohammed had many killed because the "angelGabriel" didn't enter houses with dogs and/or pictures. (Bukhari4:448)

"IbnMughaffal reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him)ordered killing of the dogs, and then said: What about them, i. e.about other dogs? and then granted concession (to keep) the dog forhunting and the dog for (the security) of the herd, and said: Whenthe dog licks the utensil, wash it seven times, and rub it with earththe eighth time." -- Sahih Muslim 551

Koran Verse 7:176compares unbelievers (that's you) to "panting dogs" with regard to theiridiocy and worthlessness.

That is wrong, he should have to appologize. People don't go around naming their dog Jesus. Of course their are better ways to teach children freedom of speech without belittling the beliefs of others.

""You want to teach your kids about intolerance, there are plenty of other ways to do it."

O'Reilly's an idiot on many fronts, but apparently he can't even read (or his staffers prepped him poorly, that's actually more likely). 

The councilman didn't say he wanted to teach his kids about 'tolerance' -- but rather about 'free speech'. Two totally different things. In fact, CAIR and a host of other whiining  ethnic groups use 'tolerance' as a pretext to try and shut down speech they disagree with.

Nothing wrong with a kafir (unclean, according to islam) naming his dog after the false prophet whose "god" decided that kuffar are unclean, like dogs and pigs...

Najasat and Taharat Rules By: Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi

B. THE A'YAN NAJISAH  - (THE INHERENTLY UNCLEAN THINGS) 6 & 7. PIGS AND DOGS(a'yan najisah - Unclean) 8. THE KAFIRS(a'yan najisah - Unclean) I would prefer to have a good dog not named after a false prophet, who deceives many.

Seriously, there really is something wrong with his head -- look at his picture -- it's all dented on one side and kinda lopsided. 

Prejudice hiding behind free speech is still prejudice.  Although, it's understandable in the councilman's case considering this nutjob believes in talking animals and virgin birth.

I beat O'Reilly to the punch - I pinned the SJC council member as a stupid dumb fuck Thursday morning.

I've seen some really great looking dogs and some really ugly people.  Take my dog.  She's really pretty, but me? Not so much.

If Muslims don't eat "pork," why is their prophet named "Mo' Ham, Ed"?  Who is this Ed guy and why does he have so much ham?

Sorry for your explanation to the Koran verse is taken out of context. It meant for the ones you advise not to do wrong but still they do it no matter what so it is the simli of the dog who pants tresting or running. Didn't you hear of the story told by proph. Mohamed that God forgave a prostitute that had given water to a thirsty dog.And as for washing utensils with dust 7 times after a dog licks, ith was found by research that this is the only way at this time to kill the rabis' virus and still is.

I would change my dog's name to Jeeezus, but she's a girl. Besides, that's my gardener's name.

My father had an invisible friend name "Jesus H. Christ" and he would always be yelling out to this friend when got mad, like hitting his thumb with a hammer. 

What's Mohammed's last name?  Could he be Mohammed W. Christ?

Pretty ironic that someone whose internet monikker mocks another religion should be upset that the muzzies get the same treatment.

And while there might be a talking animal or two somewhere in the Old Testament, they aren't really central to Christian belief. Big Mo', on the other hand, had a flying horse.

The prophet never killed or ordered anyone to kill animals or dogs no matter what and if the story about angle Gabriel is true it was meant only for him, Gabriel. So please don't generalize mr.Dan C.
