O’REILLY LAMBASTES OBAMA & ‘SECULAR PROGRESSIVES’ WHO ARE ‘BENT ON DESTROYING
The Blaze ^ | November 13, 2012

Posted on 11/13/2012 5:25:55 AM PST by NYer

On Monday night, Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly had some tough words for secular progressives, highlighting their purportedly dangerous views on social and economic issues. The subject of his “Talking Points Memo” segment asked, “Is traditional America gone for good?”

The popular television host commenced the segment by noting his belief that traditional America can, once again, rise to prominence, however, he contended that “it will take a very special person to make that happen.” To corroborate O’Reilly’s point that the nation may, indeed, bounce back to its traditional roots, he noted that, despite winning re-election, Obama is slipping in popularity.

“Left-wing ideology did not win the day for Barack Obama. Big spending on federal programs did. That’s the key,” O’Reilly said. “Because many in the media would have us believe that liberal ideology was confirmed by this election. It was not.”

Or particular note, O’Reilly hammered the president’s secular progressivism, claiming that Obama is “the poster guy” for the anti-traditionalist movement. After showcasing statistics and information surrounding births out of wedlock, abortion and other societal issues, the host noted that secular progressives have done little to curb these phenomena.

“Abortion is settled law in the USA, but it should be discouraged, because human DNA is present upon conception,” O’Reilly said. “Thus the situation becomes a human rights issue.”

The host asked if Americans want to live in a nation “where potential human life…is terminated for convenience.” As for marijuana legalization, another issue he tackled during the segment, he held little back, noting that, ”Legalizing pot sends a message that it’s fine to use it.”

From their stance on the “mythical war on women” to out-of-control entitlement spending, O’Reilly had no accolades to shower upon secular progressives. In fact, he made it clear that the movement, led by Obama, is a hazard to the nation’s social and political health.

“I believe the American people can be persuaded that the far left is a dangerous outlet bent on destroying traditional America and replacing it with a social free-fire zone that replaces it with dependency and poverty,” O’Reilly proclaimed.

Yes. He was VERY good and stayed on-point. Juan Williams tried to counter during his segment but O’Reilly was having none of it.

The headline should be: “Bill O’Reilly- A Day Late and a Dollar Short”

Welcome to the party Bill, we've been saying that same thing for years- where were you before the election?

Look what being mr. “fair and balanced” has gotten us

I did not see the show. I wish I had seen it. Although I disagree w/O’Reilly on a lot of subjects & sometimes find him unwatchable this is one area where he is strong. At least he stands up on this subject.

“Traditions” are passed on because THEY ARE HISTORICALLY PROVEN TO WORK.

Liberalism fails, and will fail, and after it crashes and we’re all hurt by it,
traditions will re-emerge because reality favors them.

Humanists, think of it as “survival of the fittest” culture, if that makes you feel better.

The only thing I disagree with- ”Legalizing pot sends a message that it’s fine to use it.”

Pot is expensive and prevalent because of the MONEY It generates. If there were not big bucks in it, there would be no problem. ALWAYS follow the money.

I USED TO smoke it and I do not now, but I might occasionally partake if it was legal- because it does have some good medicinal affects.

It is far less problematic than Alcohol.

The cost of making it illegal is far more than the damage it causes, and too much of our court system is tied up with this RELATIVELY harmless substance. (far less harmful than alcohol, once again)

It used to be legal, and you never hear about those days. When the government made it illegal is actually when all the major problems started.

IT CAN BE HARMFUL if you use it all day, every day- but the same is true for alcohol. I know the difference - I did at one time OVER-USE it. (all day every day) so i can explain the bad effects from personal knowledge and the benefits of quitting.

“I believe the American people can be persuaded that the far left is a dangerous outlet bent on destroying traditional America and replacing it with a social free-fire zone that replaces it with dependency and poverty,” O’Reilly proclaimed.

We've been trying to do this since the 60's. It's gotten us branded as heartless, selfish, racist, anti-women, anti-immigrant (legal or otherwise), anti-poor, elitist, and white supremacist. There have been periods when people saw the light for a few years, but then right back into the darkness.

I do believe that to a great extent, Obama is the leader of a cult of personality that will be quite difficult for someone else to emulate. So next time around, maybe even as early 2014, we'll see a momentary reprieve and Obama's last two years will be tainted with scandal and incompetency. The bloom will slowly leave the rose.

Hopefully Fox will post the video and if so you should not miss it.

I just wish O'Reilly would slap Juan Williams hard when he makes a stupid statement as he did last night. Williams was adament that Planned Parenthood is aligned with traditional American values and is actually "pro-family". O'Reilly should have made the hard-hitting point to this "black commentator" that Planned Parenthood has been spectacularly successful in at least one of its primary missions since its establishment ... to control the black population through abortion.

As a percentage of the U.S. population, blacks have remained essentially stagnant as a result of legalized abortion and of the killing of black babies by Planned Parenthood.

Yeah Juan, you small-minded fool -- Planned Parenthood is truly in the business of "promoting" families.

The above statement seems just a little oxymoronic to me but who am I to decide?

Object Truth, or even believing there is such a thing, is “divisive” and therefore not popular,

so this is something Bill will avoid.

“where potential human life…is terminated for convenience”

Billy boy, there is nothing “potential” terminated. It is a living, breathing child we are talking about. And will you stop using the word “fetus”, when you are talking about liberals wanting to murder an unborn child. Yes, we know the medical term that can be used for this unborn child, but get with the program.

O'Reilly had it right on election night too, "free stuff" from Obama won over a message of hard work and the potential for success from Rommney.

4 years of blaming Bush and incessently beating the "fair share" class warfare drum (plus a LOT of likely voter fraud) paid off for Team Soetoro.

Leftists, ever the hypocrites, ever the pragmatists advancing their antichrist agenda,

object to the use of “homosexual” because it’s too “clinical and dehumanizing”, but use the word “fetus” in order to be “clinical and dehumanizing” toward the unborn human being that they want to kill for convenience.

Abortion is NOT settled law as the left would have America believe.

The "right" to have an abortion at any tine, for any reason was "granted" to America by seven unelected judges.

Abortion in America is less unregulated than abortion in almost any other county in the world.

No "law" was ever passed at a federal level. And that is why the left wants to to believe the LIE that abortion is settled law. The left could NEVER get a law passed on abortion. That is why they ignore the will of the people.

What 7 unelected judges can force down the throats of America with the stroke of a pen can also be taken away with the stroke of a pen.

“Abortion is settled law in the USA, but it should be discouraged, because human DNA is present upon conception,” O’Reilly said. “Thus the situation becomes a human rights issue.”

90% of the “pro-choice” support can be summed up as

“I don’t want to feel guilty for having a murderous heart”

whether this means “I killed my child and don’t want to feel guilty” or “I would kill my child if I got pregnant”,

it’s still murder, and a “good person” isn’t a murderer.

That is what has always just 'burned' me up about BOre ... always smoothing over what Obama is doing, saying he's 'such a smart guy' and 'he's not a bad man' based on his one interview with him, acting like he has an inside track to understanding Obama because of that one stinking interview. It's been disgusting. Last night - oh my, Obama isn't such a great guy after all. I can't watch O'Reilly any more ... just happened to hear him bloviating on the TV in the other room - my dad was watching.

Bill's ratings must be falling. Many of us no longer see a political solution to the problems of this country, so there's no point in sending money to Republicans or watching their channel anymore. Ailes should replace “The Factor” with a new reality show based on the trials of being a Hooters waitress. Bill could host.

Concur.

Whatever the reason, slipping ratings (we’re not in the mood for bloviating, and won’t be maybe ever again), a few days off hanging out with family and neighbors, cleaning up hurricaine mess w no electricity, no heat, reminiscing re the wisdom of the nuns back in Levittown, whatever it was, if he falters on theis common sense stance, he’ll have no viewers in no time.

Republicans lost; they are rudderless and their sails are flapping. Conservatives did not lose, they were not in the race.
