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.
Bill woke up last night.
ultra—lowlife johnny-come-latelies joining the rats off the boat...???...another sleazy faux scheme???
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.
Jeez Bill, what happened?
I want whatever brand of testosterone supplement he just started using.
I usually can’t take too much of Ted Baxter, but he has been right about this, particularly since election night as the returns started trickling in.
BOR please go back to sleep. You will never get Obama on your show. You can stop pandering to him now.
Ted Baxter, cultural warrior is back.
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
the voice of the independent folks was certain that obama would not be re-elected. he will remain in perpetual shock from here on in
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.
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.
A little late to the party Sparky....
BOR has new puppet strings attached.
The never ending yin-yang.
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.
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.
Must have run out of bananas.
Oh, so the left is “dangerous”, but they’ll give me free stuff without working for it...
hmmm... free stuff... hmmm...
Bill tries to be so damn circumspect, he blinds himself to reality.
This in the interest of increasing viewership.
Try the truth Bill!!!
I wonder if he even recognizes the part he played in causing our national nightmare. I doubt it. He’s a doofus.
“Left-wing ideology did not win the day for Barack Obama. Big spending on federal programs did. Thats the key, OReilly said. Because many in the media would have us believe that liberal ideology was confirmed by this election. It was not.”
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.
I used to think that Juan was a fairly level-headed guy for being a lib; but as national Election Day drew nearer, he transformed into a full-fledged 0bama drone with no socially redeeming value.
“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.
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.
These little rants would have been useful BEFORE THE ELECTION!! Little twirp.
The boys do stick together ... far more effectively than conservatives seem to do! But then again, racism and and a strong sense of victimhood are powerful motivations to do so.
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.
I like to tell liberals the word “fetus” is latin for “little one”
That makes them change the subject in a hurry
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, OReilly said. Thus the situation becomes a human rights issue.
He'll be on Juan's side tomorrow, can't let the facts cause him to offend a viewer on either side. He learned a long time ago how to leave principles at home and straddle the fence for ratings. It's strictly business to him. No idealology.
“It is a poverty that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.”
OReilly hammered the presidents secular progressivism, claiming that Obama is the poster guy for the anti-traditionalist movement
NOW he complains! For four years O’Reilly has gone easy on Obama (expecting another interview with the Usurper which never came).
Bill: here’s a word for the day — perspicacious. You were not perspicacious.
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.
Nah, Bill sees the “rage” in response to the Abortion Called The Election of 2012 and knows he can make some money off it...give him a month and he’ll be on the other side of the fence again....
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.
Now he does it. A week after the election. Thanks a lot Bill
Is there a workable link for this? I missed it last night and love to see Juanny hammered.
Ratings must be slipping, or he must be reading about all the people canceling their cable.
Say what you want about O’Reilly, he nailed it last night with his commentary.
Thanx, tried it and only received a blank screen where Adam Corolla was supposed to be playing.
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.
Thank you for the link. I do not have sound on the computer at my store but I will watch when I get home.
