There are few people in America more ridiculous than Bill O’Reilly. He’s the very definition of an ignorant blowhard, especially when he goes off on a rant about “secular progressives” as he did again recently. He thinks we are the root of all evil and we must be stopped:
“On paper, the stats look hopeless for traditional Americans,” O’Reilly said. “But they can be reversed. However, it will take a very special politician to do that. By the way, Mitt Romney didn’t even try to marginalize secularism. He basically ignored it.”
Secular progressives don’t have the right approach, he argued, because they don’t want judgment on personal behavior. For examples, O’Reilly pointed to the issues of out-of-wedlock births, abortion and entitlements. Secular progressives “don’t want limitations on so-called private behavior,” he said.
The majority of Americans can be persuaded, O’Reilly said, “that the far-left is dangerous outfit, bent of destroying traditional America and replacing it with a social free-fire zone that drives dependency and poverty.” We need to confront that, he added. But too many of our politicians are too cowardly to do so.
Yeah, because Bill O’Reilly is all about judgment for private immoral behavior. You know, like wanting to rub a falafel on women who work for him. A clarion call for morality from a guy who cares only about money and his own ego.
